Making an Appointment
How much lead time to I need to make an appointment?
This question depends on the season and the current work load but we do our very best to have appointments available within 2 days of when you call. Sometimes we have even been able to accommodate an appointment for the same day as your phone call. Please call the office and we will be glad to let you know our available upcoming appointments.
How do I schedule an appointment?
You can schedule an appointment anyway that is easiest for you. You can email (firstname.lastname@example.org), call (508-667-9719), text (508-296-5798), or book online through our website.
How far will you travel? Is there a travel fee?
Our photographers cover from Sturbridge to Cape Cod, north to Southern New Hampshire and south to Northern Rhode Island. If you would like us to come to property outside of this area their may be a $25 travel fee depending on the actual mileage required for our photographers, call for more details.
What if I need my photos the same day as the appointment?
If you need your photos on the same day as your appointment, we are glad to accommodate that for you. There is a $25 rush fee that applies and you will receive your photos by 8pm the same day as the appointment.
When do I let you know if I need my photos early?
If you know that you are going to need your photos earlier than 2pm of the following business day please notify the office when you schedule your appointment or as soon as you become aware of these need to we can have the staff prepared to serve you.
What if the weather is going to be bad?
There are a few options that we can do if the weather is not going to cooperate.
1.) If the weather is just going to be overcast or sprinkling we can take a full set of photos without any issues and can easily add blue sky to your exterior photos.
2.) If the weather is going to prevent us from having our cameras outside we can shoot just the interiors of the home and then we will come back (at no cost) to shoot the exteriors once the weather clears up.
3.) If the weather is going to be very dark and stormy or create hazardous driving conditions or if you have a property where a nice day would be beneficial we would be glad to reschedule your appointment.
I’m doing a Broker’s Open House, do you sponsor them?
