Welcome and thank you for taking the time to look through my work. My passion for storytelling through bold creative photography has taken me from my hometown of Calgary, Alberta, all over the world. I love meeting passionate people, uncovering their unique qualities and documenting their story. At my high school graduation, the Head Master described me as a “gentle giant.” This is a quality I have used to develop deeper relationships with those I have the privilege of photographing. I am married to a beautiful wife, and together we have two boys. I consider myself to be one of the luckiest people on the planet. I am proud to be a brand ambassador for Magmod, a light shaping product company, and an educational ambassador for SLR Lounge, one of the top photography training platforms in the world.
Leaving the corporate world
to pursue my passion career
My journey to becoming an award-winning wedding and portrait photographer has been unconventional. After studying engineering and business in university and working in the renewable energy industry for several years, I found my true passion for people and photography. I started as a hobbyist and photo gear enthusiast and would often take photos for the family. Eventually, I had some friends ask me to photograph their destination wedding, and my wedding portfolio began to grow from there. In early 2016, I changed my focus from engineering to my new business venture, photography. Eventually, I resigned from my career as an engineer to work as a photographer on a full-time basis. I love being an entrepreneur and the fact that I get to work with amazing people with diverse backgrounds is a dream come true. I am fortunate to have clients who have commissioned me to photograph weddings all over the world, including Japan, Europe, Central America, The Caribbean, The United States and Canada.

"Excellent experience! The pictures from my family especially for my daughter are beautiful the more I look at them the more I am enjoying them. From the moment I spoke with Sean the first time on the phone, I knew that he would be the photographer to capture not only the love of my family but the best moments of my beautiful daughter. Sean is very talented and his passion for photography is very admirable... I couldn’t be more pleased with the pictures and the beautiful wall art we created for our home."
The Salazar Family
"Everything we did with Sean was first class starting with our initial conversations to our amazing photoshoot and our premiere where we were able to see our photos. Sean was incredibly professional, personable and creative and we appreciated the time he took to get to know everyone in our family. We highly recommend Sean LeBlanc Photography and would definitely work with Sean again."
The Airey Family
"We couldn't be happier with the service we received from Sean. From our engagement photos to the wedding day Sean was nothing short of amazing! He is very professional and also very personable and comfortable to be around (a huge factor on your wedding day). The photos are all jaw droppingly beautiful. I get so many compliments on on the photos they are just perfect. Everyone in our wedding party loved Sean and so we did."
Kelsey + Jared
"HIGHLY recommend Sean! I was really worried about posing in front of a camera, however those fears were quickly washed away the second Sean showed us our viewpoint for pictures as well as his comforting personality was shining through. Sean really focuses on getting to know you and will do anything to get the perfect shot. When we viewed our photos in his studio the atmosphere was relaxed, cozy and exciting. My fiance's and mine reaction to the first picture was just WOW! Is that us!!! We were both completely mind blown by the pictures! Truly grateful to have him as our photographer."
Cynthia + Lance
"Sean is an amazing family photographer. From the moment we met for our family photo session, he made us feel relaxed and natural. Our favourite photos were those that we didn't even know he was standing right there capturing those special and very natural moments. We had a good time selecting the pics too. He offers a great deal of beautiful products. Our family and friends are amazed at the quality of the photos. Thank you Sean! We will treasure the photos for ever!"
The Campero Family
"Sean was very accommodating and warm with our two young children. We had a short timeline in which to have our photos done and Sean made a huge effort to work with what we had. Everything turned out beautifully! We gave some beautiful Wall Art as gifts for Christmas and our family was over the moon! He captured us in some truly candid moments and everyone comments on how natural and "un-staged" they all look. Thank you so much Sean!"
The Osadetz Family
"Our experience with Sean was phenomenal. He takes the time to really get to know the family and what they really want out of their session as well as their vision. Sean was professional, fun and creative with our shots. The cinematic display of the results was very cool and really makes the experience feel higher level. The art that he created with our shots are impressive, beautiful and will be treasured. His artistry in taking photos and making art is exceptional. This was an amazing experience and would recommend Sean for any photos you’d like done!"
