Property Readiness:

  • We ask that you have your clients review our Getting Ready checklist. 

  • If the Photographer arrives at the appointment and the home is not ready, the property will be shot "As Is".

  •  We value your feedback and input for choosing the best angles to photograph the property. If you would like to give input, please meet the Photographer at the beginning of the appointment or add notes in the "comments" section of the order.

  •  Absent your input, the Photographer will use his best judgment and experience to decide which angles will best highlight the property.


Order Details & Accuracy:

  • The Client is expected to have accurately entered or communicated all pertinent information at the time the order is placed. We reserve the right to update incorrect information and adjust the pricing of the order to accurately reflect the order (ex.
