Book a Shoot

Welcome to Picture That Property | PictureThatProperty.com

 

My name is Rachel, and I’m the business manager here. Below is everything you need to get started with us plus links to our magical online booking calendar. If you get stuck or have questions, just text me or email me or call me (or telegraph me or smoke signal me or contact me via Morse code. Full disclosure: I’m terrible at checking my smoke signals, so you might want to stick with one of the more current communication methods). My contact info is at the bottom of the page. Can’t wait to work with you!

PRICING INFO

Yes, we know, the main thing on your mind is “how much does it cost” (although, really, we think the question should be “how amazing will your photos make my listings look?”). Take a moment to review our current price sheet.

HOW TO BOOK

If you know what you want and are ready to book, we can either set up your shoot through email, or you can book online by clicking the enormous button below (smaller ones are everywhere, and those work, too).

After you choose the service option you want on the booking page, it will show you all the available shoot times on the calendar and you can select your preferred spot (checkboxes for the addon services are on the same page with the calendar).

On the next screen you input the listing address, how our photographer will be getting into the property, and any special instructions. The last screen handles your credit card information and submits the booking (no charge is made until the shoot is complete, and security is handled by Square; I never see your card info except for the last four digits).

When that’s complete, I will take a look at the booking from my end, make sure everything looks good, and email you a confirmation.

If you would rather book by text or email, we can do that too. My contact info is at the bottom of this page.

 

SCHEDULING NOTES FOR DRONE AND TWILIGHT WORK

Aerials and Drone Flyovers are weather-dependent (rain splatter on the lens doesn’t produce awesome pictures, and high winds don’t work super well to fly in either). Please pick the time and date you want, and I will keep an eye on the weather. If it looks like it’s going to be uncooperative, I will keep in contact with you and we will re-schedule if necessary.

If you would like Twilight Shots or a Light Painting, please book a 3:00 appointment; however, your shoot will almost certainly end up occurring later. I will check the sunset time and talk to our photographer, and then I’ll be in touch to finalize the time.

 

WHAT THE HECK IS ALL THIS STUFF?

Click on the blue links for whole blog posts on each item with pictures and examples and everything (because, you know, we are a photography company and all…).

    • Aerials are still photos taken by drone and are helpful if the front of the house has obstructions like trees, is on property, is near something you want to show off, or if you just want an extra-beautiful primary exterior shot. Aerials are the Glamour Shots of real estate photography.<p?
    • Zillow Walkthroughs are low-cost, bare-bones videos that are mainly useful because Zillow displays listings with Walkthroughs at the top of their search results. Zillow’s requirements for them are very strict: they can only be shot on Zillow’s phone app, can’t be longer than two minutes, and have no music or editing capabilities. We have a special phone stabilizer and special phone camera lens plus 25+ years of video experience to help make our Walkthroughs smoother and easier to view. Will it look like Gone With the Wind? No. But it won’t look like The Blair Witch Project either, which is the common scenario with handheld, cell phone video. How do these differ from Standard Video Tours? Glad you asked! Here’s the rundown: Zillow Walkthroughs vs. Standard Video Tours.
    • Twilight Photos are beautiful primary exterior shots taken during magic hour for perfect, soft lighting.

 

  • Light Paintings, which are also primary exterior shots taken during magic hour, are specially lit and shot section by section and then composited from the multiple photos during editing to produce one beautifully dramatic photo. Click on either the Twilight Photos link or the Light Paintings link to see a side by side comparison of the two.Twilight Photo v. Light Painting | Picture That Property

 

  • Virtual Tours are complimentary slideshows of your still pictures set to music. These are different from our Video Tours, which are shot on actual video.
  • Expedited Processing guarantees your photos will be to you by close of day as opposed to our more typical delivery time of within about 24 hours.
