How To Prep a Home for a Photo Shoot

Professional real estate photography plays a crucial role in attracting potential buyers. Well-organized, clean, and visually appealing photos can make a significant difference in generating interest and securing a successful sale.

Begin by decluttering and depersonalizing your space. Remove personal items, excessive furniture, and unnecessary décor to create a clean and spacious environment. Additionally, focus on enhancing your home’s curb appeal by tidying up the exterior and ensuring proper landscaping.

Consider staging your home with a neutral and inviting aesthetic. Use appropriate furniture arrangements to highlight the flow of each room. Remove any items that might distract or take away from the main features of the space. You can also add small decorative touches like fresh flowers or tasteful artwork to create a welcoming atmosphere.

Pay extra attention to the main areas of your home: the kitchen, living room, bedrooms, and bathrooms. These are the spaces that potential buyers are most interested in. Ensure they are clean, well-organized, and staged appropriately. Don’t forget to capture any unique features or selling points, such as fireplaces or built-in bookshelves.

It’s best to remove personal items, including family photos, from view during the photoshoot. This allows potential buyers to envision themselves living in the space without any distractions. Opt for neutral artwork or decorative pieces instead to add visual interest.

Prioritize curb appeal by cleaning the exterior of your home, including windows, siding, and walkways. Trim any overgrown hedges or trees, and ensure that the lawn is well-maintained. Consider adding colorful flowers or potted plants near the entrance to create an inviting first impression.

Outdoor preparations: Enhance your property’s curb appeal by ensuring the exterior is in pristine condition. Trim the lawn, prune bushes and trees, and clear any clutter or debris. Consider adding outdoor lighting, such as landscape lights or accent lights, to highlight specific features like walkways or architectural elements.

Clean and declutter: Before the shoot, thoroughly clean and declutter all areas of your home. Remove personal items, excessive furniture, and any clutter that may distract from the focal points. Twilight photography relies on capturing a sense of openness and spaciousness, so tidy up and ensure each room looks its best.

Indoor staging and lighting: Create an inviting atmosphere indoors by turning on all interior lights, including lamps and accent lighting. This helps to balance the interior and exterior lighting during twilight. Check that all bulbs are working properly and consider using warm, soft lighting to create a cozy ambiance.

Window treatments: Pay attention to the window treatments as they will play a significant role during twilight photography. Open all curtains, blinds, and shades to allow the natural light and twilight hues to filter through the windows. If you have outdated or distracting window treatments, consider temporarily removing or replacing them for the shoot.

It’s important to put your best foot forward when it comes to listing a property. We have put together a handy PDF checklist and video series at that will help you get the most for your property.

Add-On: Video Walkthrough


If your Add-On: Video Walkthrough receives a copyright claim for the music used YouTube will not remove your video, but may run Ads before it. We have music agreements set up, so the music rights holders can claim, and monetize user-generated content, making it unable to be taken down. YouTube cannot differentiate from someone who made a video vs under a license from someone using the track without one.

Social Media

If your Add-On: Video Walkthrough uses a copyrighted piece of music, Instagram may remove the video. Facebook may partially mute it. This occurs because those platforms do not support individual licenses, so it does not recognize the licenses we issue to our users. You can appeal to get your video back, but only if you use the originally licensed music we provided. If you are using your own music, you can only appeal if you own the copyrights.

Pro Video Walkthrough

All music we utilize for Pro Video Walkthroughs we license through Soundstripe. If you upload to YouTube or other Social Media platforms and they request the music license we can provide you with the appropriate documentation. Request an appeal and supply the documentation. Learn more about music licensing here:

3D Tour Questions

Matterport 3D tours allow you to virtually explore a property from any angle. We use the Theta Ricoh V, a 14 megapixel 360 degree camera. As we scan a property, it generates a 3D model of the space. This allows you to view the home as floor plan, a “dollhouse,” and also take accurate measurements of the space.

Matterport Pro 3D Tours provide you with everything you receive with a standard Matterport 3D Tour and takes it to the next level. We use the Matterport Pro2 3D, an industry leading camera which captures 360 degree images as large as 134 megapixels! It offers professional features like “3D Sensing,” which uses infrared sensors with a 99% measurement accuracy. You can also export images up to 8092 x 4552 pixels, and you can export video at 4k resolution. With these scans, you can generate schematic floor plans, take accurate measurements of the space, and create technical assets, like OBJ files compatible with Autodesk, Revit, and Xactimate.

We will host your Matterport Tour for 6 months from the shoot date of your tour. After 6 months if you still want your Matterport tour to be live we will charge $5/month or $50 for 12 months for hosting. You can also create your own Matterport Account and we can transfer the scan over to your account and you can keep the scan for as long as you’d like.

  • Zillow allows Matterport Tours to be directly added to a Zillow listing. To add it, email Zillow at with the property address and the Matterport link. Zillow’s support team will add it to your listing on the backend of their system.
  • We embed the Matterport on your virtual tour page. You can use the unbranded virtual tour link to paste into the virtual tour link on the MLS for viewing.
  •  You can share the Matterport Tour directly to social media from the tour link. In the bottom right hand corner of the tour click the 3 dot button and share to your preferred social network.

Matterport 3D Spaces can be linked into your MLS listing with an MLS approved link that will be proved via email. The turnaround time for Matterport is typically the next day before 5 pm. Once you have the link, simply follow our MLS’s instructions for uploading media to your listing.

It’s worth noting that not all MLS systems support 3D virtual tours, so it’s important to check with your local MLS to confirm their requirements and guidelines. Additionally, some MLS systems may require specific file formats or sizes for virtual tours, so it’s important to ensure that your Matterport 3D Space meets these requirements before uploading it.

Zillow 3D interactive floor plans are digital representations of properties that allow potential buyers to navigate and explore the layout virtually. These floor plans provide a realistic and immersive experience, enhancing the listing’s appeal and helping buyers visualize the property’s spatial arrangement.

During the visit, our photographers will utilize advanced cameras or specialized 3D scanning devices to capture the dimensions and details of each room. Afterward, they will process the data to create the interactive floor plans.

The turnaround time for receiving Zillow 3D interactive floor plans can vary depending on the size of the property. Typically, you can expect to receive the completed floor plans within a few days to a week after the photographer’s visit.

Once the Zillow 3D interactive floor plans are delivered, they are typically not editable. However, you can communicate any specific requirements or preferences to the photographer before the shoot to ensure they capture the essential aspects of the property. Discussing your expectations and desired features in advance can help the photographer tailor the floor plans to your needs.
