Testimonials from Past Clients
Testimonial from Calgary Actor Barry Coppens
"I would and will be telling anyone that I know and work with that when they need a headshot this is the Photographer they need to see. Sean was very professional, had a great studio, and was very pleasant to talk with. I would recommend him to anybody."
Testimonial from Business Portrait Client Brad Sorenson
"Sean was great to work with and very accommodating to our needs. The quality of his work is definitely solid and he's very responsive after the sale too. I'd definitely recommend Sean to a friend."
Testimonial from Corporate Headshot Client David Taylor
"I hired Sean to do a headshot for my website and for my social media accounts. He was extremely easy to deal with, definitely an expert photographer and his studio was excellent. He took about 75 photos in less than one hour and he helped me select the top 2 out of these. Over the next few days he digitally touched up the photos and then issued them to me.
The final photos were excellent and I have received many comments after updating the profile pictures on my social media accounts"
Testimonial from Business Portrait Client Kelley Smith
"We are repeat customers of Riverwood Photography for professional business shots. We were so impressed with the quality of the shots, that we asked Sean to take family photos at our home. Sean was attentive and patient with our family including three children and pets, scoping out the best locations for the shoot. Sean took many shots for viewing, and helped us select some amazing photos with the appropriate finishes/frames for our family. We would highly recommend Riverwood Photography for your photography needs."
Testimonial from LinkedIn Headshot Client John Palmer
"I met Sean through a career management company. He provided great hints ahead of time to help ensure a great photo session. The session was excellent! He kept things upbeat even with the group of folks waiting and took the time to work with each person and make sure a great set of images were captured. Turnaround on photo selection and final touch ups was exceptional. Perfect image to use for my job search."

Testimonial from Mortgage Associate Kyle Beattie
Axiom Mortgage Solutions
Testimonial from Executive Portrait Client Stephen Norris
"As someone who is not necessarily comfortable in front of a camera, nor photogenic (am always concerned at what the camera will 'produce'/'say'), this experience was actually enjoyable. Sean put me at ease immediately and engaged with me in a genuine and warm manner. The resulting photographs reflect this and I am pleasantly surprised, no ecstatic, at the outcome."
Testimonial from Business Portrait Client Lisa Lowry
"The photo session was very easy and comfortable. Sean is very professional and made the process smooth and seamless, and the photos turned out fantastic. It was an enjoyable experience that I would recommend to anyone looking to have photos done."

Testimonial from Corporate Portrait Client Jill Lassaline
"I am one of the many people in this world who cannot stand to have my picture taken. However, the need for a head shot had to surpass that fear of my own picture. Sean made the process fun and easy, quickly putting me at ease and coming up with great results. The turn around time to receive my head shot was remarkable. It was truly worth the morning of nerves that I had to get these shots done. Thank you, Sean!"
Testimonial from Calgary Marketer Lisa Genovese
Sean is absolutely one of the best photographers I've worked with. His work is impeccable and my clients are always so happy with the result. Recently he helped me with my own headshot and I couldn't be more happy with how they turned out! Thank you so much!
Testimonial from Corporate Headshot Client Ashley MacDonald
It was great having Sean photograph our company headshots. We had two team members attend for photographs and were in and out in record time. Sean is very personable and friendly, he gave us simple instructions for how to position ourselves, and what style of portrait would work best for our purpose and industry. We had a great time in the studio and came out with excellent photos for our website and to be displayed in office. Everything was very quick and streamlined. Thanks Sean!

Testimonial from Headshot Client Ross Nazareth
Riverwood Photography was a professional, courteous and efficient company to work with. Working with Sean was enjoyable as he is not only skilled at photography but he is also accommodating and makes you feel comfortable, which will come through in photos. My photos were high quality and I would be pleased to use Riverwood Photography again.
Testimonial from Headshot Client Stan Williams
I really enjoyed working with Sean. He is professional in the best sense of the word and was able to put me at ease prior to the photo shoot. He is skilled since my glasses don't have a reflection and he cared that there was a slight tint on the glasses so he took a photo without them, for later editing. The edited photos were great and the delivery was fast. Sean did a great job and I'd highly recommend him!
Testimonial from Business Broker Ken Wither
Sean provided a relaxed atmosphere as he went about his business in a professional manner. As we chatted the posing was very informal.

Crossroads Of Life Coaching
Testimonial from Business Portrait Client Louise Behiel
I HATE having my picture taken and am an expert at avoiding it. But, I am starting a new company and I need to have pictures for my website and social media, so I swallowed hard and went online.
Sean's pictures were great. When I compared his galleries to others, I knew I'd have the best opportunity of a good photo shoot with him. The online booking system was easy to use. I love being able to book my appointment online.
When I got to his house, he was relaxed and easy going and that helped me relax. The process was painless and the untouched photos were amazing. I was thrilled.
The retouched photos were unbelievable. He took good photos and made them great. What can I say? I am so pleased with the results that I've been recommending him to everyone I know.
Thanks Sean. You took a painful process and made it easy and fun. And the results were the best.

I can't thank Sean enough for getting my headshot done for me quickly, professionally and comfortably. He made the whole process very easy and was so accommodating.
