Juan is a colleague of mine and when I heard he did photography I decided to ask him about it and I'm glad I did. When we arrived to the location I was amazed to see all the professional equipment he carries with him. You can tell he takes pride on what he does. Juan did such an amazing job! From beginning to end he was very patient with my children. He even treated the kiddos to milkshakes. Once I had the pictures in hand I was so amazed on how great they came out and everyone loved them. The whole experience overall was great and I would definitely go to him again.
Baby Emily turns 3 this month. I wanted to do a Mommy & Daughter photo shoot but I didn't expected to be this perfect. This little girl is my world and these pictures brought me so much joy.Every picture captured Emily's innocence, happiness, and loving little heart. Thank you Cousin for the best gift. You have that vision, the touch, the patience. Your are just an awesome, amazing, and talented photographer. Baby Emily loved the pictures she kept looking at them over and over. Thank you so much!
Our overall experience of the photo shoot, from beginning to end, was easy, enjoyable and very flexible. Juan always travel the extra mile and out of his ways to make sure our photo shoot was the best experience, @ the best place, and time. If you are looking for a professional photographer highly motivated, experience, strong work ethic, I highly recommend Juan!
Queremos agradecerle una vez mas a nuestro amigo Juan Lizarzaburo por ese trabajo tan profesional que hizo con nuestra familia. Es una gran bendición el poder ser padres y guardar esos lindos recuerdos atravez de su lente.
Esperamos en un futuro poder seguir trabajando con Juan, nuestro fotógrafo!

I decided to take my one year old to Puerto Rico for Spring Break and wanted to get his photo's taken while we were there. I really had no idea how difficult it would be to take a one year old on such a long trip! It seemed that everyday had something new in store from getting lost to locking my rental car keys in the trunk. The day arrived for taking photo's with Juan and I just wasn't sure if I was up to it. I called Juan to explain that my GPS was not working and how hectic things were. He immediately put me at ease with his relaxed personality and helped to get directions to me and set up a convenient meeting location. Through phone calls and texts he guided me from one side of the island to the other and went way above and beyond his job of a photographer. He even sent map pinpoints to my iphone to help me find my way and bought a bottle of water for my baby for when we arrived. I was stressed and running late and the whole time he remained pleasant and patient. By the time we arrived my son had thrown up and was rather grumpy! Juan remained so patient and kind with us and has delivered the most amazing photos! He is an amazing artist and very pleasant man to work with.
I recently embarked on an adventure to Puerto Rico. I was attempting to put together a very special surprise proposal for my beautiful girlfriend (now fiancé), even though I was right in the middle of stressful midterm testing for my graduate program. All I knew was that I wanted to surprise her at the lighthouse in Cabo Rojo and get it documented with pictures and video. I had no idea how much help I was going to need and luckily I found amazing people like Juan. Juan was not merely a photographer, but an accomplice (haha), friend, and informant. I, at times, leaned on him for directions, ideas, and he even used his superb people skills to calm me down and let me know that it was going to be alright (on multiple occasions). So, amidst the stress of midterm tests, a delayed flight, a slow car rental pickup bus, my poor sense of direction, a flat tire (This felt like the last straw. Haha.), and tire smudges all over my white proposal shirt, the proposal was amazing! Without Juan's "above and beyond" efforts, I feel that it would have been a nightmare. His encouragement, extra information, immediate friendship and readiness to help will never be forgotten. Apart from those extra efforts, his photography skills are amazing. We literally love all of the pictures. His editing is superb as well! He is excellent at his craft and my fiancé and I will treasure the pictures that he took of us for the rest of our lives. I feel incredibly fortunate, grateful and blessed to have been able to meet Juan and have him be so involved and instrumental in such an unforgettable day in the lives of my fiancé and I.
Fue un gran placer ser parte de una sesión de fotos realizado por un gran fotógrafo. Tuve la oportunidad de compartir una experiencia única junto con mi hermano. Realmente me encanto el gran trabajo realizado por Juan Lizarzaburo. Fue una tarde maravillosa en Cabo Rojo, donde cabe destacar la pasión, dedicación, talento, creatividad, humor, paciencia que Juan nos brindo. Estamos muy agradecidos por tu tiempo y por esas lindas fotografías.

About a week ago my husband and I experienced what could have been a premature birth for our expecting son... Thank the Lord with hospitalization and medications at home, the baby and I are both fine...but I couldn't stop thinking of all that I wanted to do before he came, like finish his room, and take professional pictures of my pregnancy to keep as a memory. My lovely cousin knew that my husband and I wanted to take pictures, and gave us the gift of a photo session with Juan. Every pose that was taken, made us feel comfortable and the results were awesome making it difficult for us to pick prints from so many great pictures. We are so pleased and grateful for the pictures that we have also decided to take family and baby pictures when our son is born and have Juan as our photographer.

I am one of the very few people on this earth that does not enjoy taking pictures. The camera scares me, don't ask me why. when Juan initially asked me if i was interested in a photoshoot I immediately declined. He refused rejection and proceded to present his case ferverntly. He assured me that I would have fun, that I could bring a change of clothes and a friend for support. Upon hearing this I reluctantly agreed; it's a decision that I don't regret.
The shoot was on beautiful Sunday morning in a park that I had never paid much attention to everytime I passed it by. At first I felt a little awkward making poses because I believed that I didn't have it in me. But with the help of Juan, his assistant Janeth, and my friend Keila I began to feel comfortable and ultimately in my element by the end of the shoot.
It was one of the funnest, and most liberating experiences I have ever had and I would do it again in a heartbeat! I encourage anyone who
for one reason or another hasn't been able to or wanted to experience a photoshoot to really make an effort to do this. Don't be shy, just be yourself and let Juan capture the moment. It's a once in a lifetime chance that you don't want to miss!
Yo sabia que serian diferentes! Juan se acomodo a mi estilo. Mas que fotos de estilo “encantado”, entre madre e hija, buscaba fotos que parecieran tomadas en incognito y demostraran, sin otras distracciones, la relación que llevo con mi hija Catalina. Esa es ella y esta soy yo, y así somos cuando estamos juntas las dos!
Adoro el color saturado de las fotos! Me encanta la sensación que da el ver cada una de las fotografías y el que es un momento real y no una fantasía de una idea creada para perpetuar un recuerdo que no existe. Todo mundo que ve la colección de fotos nos reconoce a ambas tal y cual somos haciendo algo que hacemos muy seguido: Carrito de elefante, Sr. Oso en mano, manta en la grama o paseo por el parque! Continua con tu excelente trabajo
Como graduanda de bachillerato, deseaba tener un recuerdo de mi último año, marcando así un nuevo rumbo. Agradezco el trabajo de Juan al realizar una sesión muy creativa y dinámica. Realmente capturó mi mensaje en cada una de las fotos. Son un hermoso recuerdo de mi último año como estudiante universitaria.
"Queremos agradecer en gran manera a Juan Lizarzaburo por su excelente trabajo, tiempo, y dedicación en nuestra sesión de fotos. Pasamos un dia expectacular disfrutando de la creatividad de un buen fotografo. Mediante estas fotos se puede apreciar el amor que nos a mantenido unidos y con la ayuda de Dios así sera para siempre. Esperamos que en este mundo de fotografias a muchas vidas les pueda traer alegria. Gracias Juan "

"Sometimes you capture an image of a place that you love or a beautiful scenery that captivate you at a particular hour of the day or maybe you’re on vacation and want to document your trip. I met Juan at a gathering from a photographers club that we both are members and by coincidence I found him once at a wedding that I was attending as a photographer. We always chat about photography (of course) but I didn’t had the chance to view his work. The day I finally did, I was overwhelmed by the images I saw of places where he found beauty and didn’t hesitate to grab that beauty and make it art. Juan have a great talent as a photographer and is a very humble person. I'm more than pleased with the image that I bought and when I took it to the store to frame it, the guy there was in shock with the image, the only thing he said was "wow those colors, the sea, looks like a painting. How he do that?" True is a great pice of art. Now I have a great piece of art that capture my breath every time I look at it."
