The bedrock of all real estate photography is quality interior photography. Showing off your property in the best way possible takes extensive knowledge in compositing, framing, lighting, editing, and years of experience of knowing when and why to take a shot. At The Luxury Level, we provide that in every photo we take, in every photographer we send out. We make it a goal to listen to your needs and will take the extra step necessary to make sure the photo we take is the best it can be. That could be as simple as fixing a misshapen pillow or as complex as moving a furniture.
Unlike other real estate photography companies, we take care in making sure windows are property exposed, angles are straight and even height, and that the color tone is consistent and true to the property. We even have advanced editing techniques to add fire, screens, and other elements into the photograph to help further the overall look of the picture.
We've shot thousands of homes in the Southern California over the years so you can trust that we know exactly what we're doing to turn a 1 million dollar home into a 10 million dollar home. Peruse some of our most recent favorites below.
The face of your property, and many times the listing's "hero shot" is an exterior photography picture. The grounds and surrounding area are often just as important to capture as the interior, as such we take great care in ensuring the quality of work is on par with any interior work we do. Our photographers know the exact time of day or exact moment in a day to best capture daytime exteriors of your property. We are also well versed in sky replacement editing should it be a cloudy day on your shoot.
The following is a short gallery of some of our favorite "daytime" shots from the front yard, backyard, and other exterior grounds. Check out our pre-twilights and twilights to see even more impressive results!
As much as twilight photography is the star of the show, pre-twilight photography is a close runner-up! What's the difference between the two? Well, pre-twilight photography is best for properties with minimal exterior lighting. It is also ideal for properties with darker exteriors because not as much light is needed (but is also perfectly fine for light exteriors).
Pre-twilight is shot around 15 minutes before the sun has set, when the sky is changing colors with dramatic pinks, yellows, reds, and purples. Not all days are created equal so sometimes the color change is pretty minimal but regardless, shots of your property will look markedly better than during the day because there is no harsh light creating shadows on the house and there enough light left to light the exterior and show off a dramatic sky. And again, combined with our advanced editing techniques, we know how to best capitalize on the shots we take.
One of the most important ways to get your listing sold is to bring potential clients in with jaw-dropping pictures. Cue twilight photography! Our years of expertise has fortified our ability to know when and how to capture your listing in the most dramatic way possible. Coupled with our superior editing techniques, we know how to make your photos POP while still retaining the natural look of the home.
This type of photography is perfect for homes that have great exterior lighting (up-lights on the house, the grounds, and pool lighting, etc.). It is also ideal for properties with a lighter exterior (houses with dark exteriors don’t typically turn out well). It normally starts about 20-30 minutes after the sun has set and lasts for another 10-15 minutes after that.
The following gallery has some of the best work we've done to date. We're a wealth of knowledge when it comes to twilights - don't be shy - ask for a consult!
Who doesn't love the photos you see in magazines like Architectural Digest or Elle Decor? The photography in those magazines were composed to distill the essence of a room or a staged area into a perfect shot. Now, it doesn't always have a place in real estate photography since you're often looking to capture the largest angle of a room to show off the size and space of a property. BUT, some properties need that extra touch to drive more traffic - especially when the details, staging, and layout are so compelling. That's where architectural style photography comes into play.
When choosing us to capture your home in this architectural manner, we focus on capturing "vignettes" of your listing to help give your home more personality and depth. It's the type of photography that brings you and your marketing to a whole new level - separating you from the pack. In this gallery you will see a variety of ways that we have worked with our clients properties to achieve those goals.
Take your listing to new heights with our aerial drone photography!
