Terms and Conditions for Real Estate
Scheduling and Contact Information
Requests for photography appointments should be submitted via email or our online scheduler. We will reply back within 24 hours to verify the date, time and location of the shoot. Next day orders are difficult to schedule, cannot be guaranteed and are subject to an additional charge. Once both parties have acknowledged the date and time of the appointment, the appointment will be considered “booked” and a confirmation email will be sent by the photographer.
At the Shoot
The Client is responsible for the presence of an authorized representative at the shoot to approve the Photographer’s interpretation of the project. If a Client or Brokerage representative is not present, the Photographer’s interpretation shall be deemed acceptable. The photographer will make a reasonable effort to remove stray objects from the rooms; however please note that this does not include things like making beds or arranging furniture. Agents are expected to have the property staging and cleaning completed prior to the photo shoot. All properties will be shot “As Is.” Your input is important when choosing the best rooms and angles to photograph. Absent your input, the photographer will use his/her best judgment and experience to decide how best to photograph the property.

Once the images have been taken, the photographer will perform digital retouching and deliver to you within 24-48 hours after the photoshoot, unless otherwise specified. Delivery/Payment is via our online platform and a transfer link will be sent to the email address(es) you supply. All images will be delivered in both High Resolution and MLS Resolution. Coming back to re-shoot is subject to an additional charge.
