General Information

Preparation & Shoot Time

We ask that the property be fully prepared for the photoshoot upon the arrival of the photographer. We know, however, this isn't always possible. There's quite a bit to do after all! It's essential that we stay on schedule so that we don't start a snowball of chaos for any subsequent photoshoots. If a property or home isn't fully ready, we may not have enough time to complete the shoot. We schedule appointments and set prices according to how much time we know it will take to complete shoot "as is." 

Cancellation Policy

We understand that some things are beyond your control, so, we try to be sensitive to that. For that reason, we do not charge cancellation fees anytime a shoot is cancelled more than 24 hours before it's scheduled start time. If a shoot is cancelled within 24 hours of it's scheduled start time, we will invoice a $25 cancellation fee. If the photographer arrives and the shoot cannot happen, we invoice a 50% fee on the value of the space that was reserved.

We want to ensure a consistent and reliable scheduling experience for our clients and last minute changes disrupt that process for everyone. We also incur costs when establishing an appointment that we may not be able to recover. 

The best way to avoid a cancellation fee / delay is to be in tune with the condition of the property and it's current state within 48 hours of the scheduled shoot time. Heavily emphasizing the importance of this to your clients and homeowners is a good idea also!

Booking & Communication

To book an appointment, we ask that you submit a formal request through our website. The quick link to that page is www.shootrequest.com. When you do this, we get all the info that we need up front, AND it's registered in our system so everyone on our team can pull info when they need to. We ask that you avoid texting us information as we cannot guarantee it will make it where it needs to go.

Any shoot requests sent in after 5:00pm will receive a response the next morning. Please be thorough with your information. If we are lacking anything, like a gate code for example, it will only end up delaying things along the way that may prevent us from completing your shoot in a timely manner.
