All Photo Shoots Include Drone Still Photos


It is to your benefit and ours to have the property ready for the photography shoot. You want the pictures to look great and we have a schedule that is important for us to maintain. We are happy to help out with minor changes to the property that will improve the quality of the pictures. But there are some items that are critical to the success of the shoot that are required to be taken care of before our arrival.

Please make sure the property is clean. Make sure no dirty dishes are visible in the kitchen, no unmade beds or dirty laundry in the bedrooms, and bathroom and kitchen counters are free from clutter. Remove any clutter from the floors.

If there are pets in the house please make arrangements to have them and their personal items (such as a litter box) in an area that won't interfere with the photography.

Check to make sure all lightbulbs are working.

If you plan on having the property professionally staged for the photo session please allow time before our scheduled arrival to complete the staging.

All of these things will help to create the quality photographs that both you and our company desire.

The seller doesn't need to be present for the shoot, but if they would like to be present we would enjoy the company. We would prefer (but not required) for the agent to be at the shoot so they can point out important details they would like us to focus on. If the seller or agent is unable to be there we will enter the property with the agreed upon method. Our photographer will carefully move distracting items, open blinds, and turn on lights. After the shoot we will turn off lights and lock doors. We will leave the property just as we found it.

You will be contacted by email with a link to the website page by 5 PM the following business day. (Please note that Friday sessions will be available Monday by 5 PM.) The pictures will be purchased from the Menu Item Product Downloads. The product name will be "Property Address" with four sample pictures shown in the product description. Just add this product to Your Cart, Checkout, and the pictures and video will be available immediately for download. You will also receive an email with download instructions if you wish to download them later. The pictures will be available for download for 7 days. If you need to download them after 7 days, please contact Theresa at (816)-282-4218.

No worries. It can always be a Sunny Day! We edit exterior pictures from a dreary sky to a blue sky as part of our high quality promise.

If it is raining or snowing we obviously can not fly the drone. But we also have limitations on wind and temperatures. If the wind exceeds 10 MPH or temperatures are below freeing we will not be able to take any drone pictures. The shoot can be rescheduled for another day when the weather cooperates.

There are no travel fees charged for photography shoots at the Lake of the Ozarks. Photo shoots outside of the Lake area will be quoted to add a travel fee.
