THE SOUTHERN BELLE PROCESS

I take anywhere from 1-700+ pictures a listing. I have the eye & know how to go through the images and select only the best angles that will capture and attract the buyer's attention to your property.  

 

If certain images or angles are wanted or not wanted, we are to be notified before the day or at the photoshoot with exact instructions of what is needed to be photographed.  Otherwise what the photographer takes photos of and edits shall be deemed acceptable.

 

Photos are sized to fit South Carolinas MLS

1920 X 1080

Medium Size

High Resolution

300 DPI

Web & Print

 

We only edit a set number of images per collection. So, if you would like more images to choose from, we suggest you choose either one or two photography collections higher than the one you selected to have a variety to choose from.

 

I specialize in Real Estate Photography and have won many awards and have helped sell thousands of homes just from my photos alone.  I am greatly confident in my work and know what angles to take and what is needed to help sell your property. I have been named Myrtle Beach’s #1 Real Estate Photographer in 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020 & 2021 by Brokers Choice & the hundreds of agents I serve.

 

I have been in the Real Estate & Architectural Photography Industry for 16+ years, I have been requested to host events and training sessions all over the USA. I have all the knowledge and skills in taking Real Estate & Architectural Photography and am always advancing my skills and talents with continuing education.  

 

 

REPLACE, EXCHANGE OR ADD ON MORE IMAGES

After we send over the images if there is something you want to be enhanced or changed in one of the images, please let us know and we will adjust that for you. We do not substitute or exchange images so if you would like to add on any additional Images it is $7 per image for Standard HDR Interior Images & $14 per image for Standard HDR Exterior Images or $9 per image for Luxury HDR Interior Image or $18 per image for Luxury HDR Exterior Image.
