11 Years of experience

As a professional headshots photographer I want my clients to break that barrier between the employer or casting directors and themselves. I want my clients to look approachable and confident and it's my goal to make them look amazing.


Being a family and portrait photographer lets me capture the most important moments in the life of an individual. Weddings, newborns, toddlers, expecting mothers, couples in love, quinceañeras, birthdays, family events. Either in studio or on location.

Awards, honors and recognition

One of my portraits of "Black Panther" Director Ryan Coogler was the cover of the "Film Comment" Magazine. My photos are published by media outlets like The Washington Post, The New York Times, The LA Times, Rolling Stone, Forbes, CBS, MSNBC, ABC, etc. on a regular basis.

A fun fact about me

I was an electronic music international DJ and Producer during 25 years. I traveled the world and performed in 30 different countries. I know, that's not fun but I really enjoyed it!

    Great experience. Willy was fun & easy going yet, helped with pose instructions, which helped with capturing the best shot! I would definitely recommend him.

    Willy was great and delivered more than I expected, as I wasn't entirely sure of the exact look I wanted. I had a general idea but he caught on quickly and within minutes we were lighting up the place for a customized shot I was looking for. He is easy to work with too and also has a good eye.

    Willy Sanjuan is a true artist. From the professionalism, to the skill, to the editing it's just all... money well spent on the day of the shoot I was on my time of the month (bloated, cramping, problematic skin) and the shoot was still fun!! Plus the photos turned out beautiful. Again, thank you. The work is very much appreciated

    More than happy with Willy Sanjuan Photography!!!

    While shopping for a photographer for a very special event, I could only dream of someone, whose clients and models are movie stars and celebrities.I realized that the full package photoshoot with Willy would be beyond my budget and I was even hesitant to start haggling around with the photographer of that high level of customers.Willy was very kind, sensed my financial constraint and came up with a fantastic deal, for which I can't be grateful enough.But the most important thing is, that photography is not his mere job, it is his vocation and mission.It was an entire delight and so much fun working with Willy. He's got a cutting edge cameras and equipment for shooting both in the studio and nature sights.Willy's professional job worked miracle when the sun was not very friendly for taking pictures.His assistant Patricia was extremely attentive and super helpful.If you need a creative and artistic approach to your photo-session, look no more!Willy is phenomenal!He delivered pictures within a week and,OMG, those photos exude class, style, moving emotions and are like movie shots, indeed!

    So excited and grateful!

    Highly recommend!

    Willy was very attentive, professional, and patient with us! He had a conversation with us and got to know us, which in part helped him understand what we wanted. He was very friendly and easy-going which made us feel at ease. The photoshoot was for my husband but he made sure to take a family picture with a stubborn 3 year old and a 7 month old German Shepherd. Can't emphasize how patient he was with us. AMAZING. The pictures were phenomenal. Excellent work! I would definitely recommend him, 100%.
