What is a Luxury Render?
Rendering is an image of a property that has not yet been built. It serves to show what it will look like. Renders are created based on the architect’s CAD files and floor plans.
What is Virtual Staging?
Staging is when we digitally add furniture to properties to show a potential buyer its potential. You can select from a vast online furniture catalog and leave the rest to us!
How quickly after an appointment, will I get my materials back?
We provide next business day turnaround for most products, such as photos, floor plans measurements & redraws Virtual Staging, Editing. Videos take a little longer and can be about a week to turn around.
If the weather is going to be bad do I need to call & cancel?
Yes, we ask for at least a 2-hour notice to avoid a late cancellation fee. This must be done by a phone call to confirm it was received.
If you have a 9 am shoot please cancel by 5 pm the day before. Please note, our office is closed over the weekend. If you have a weekend shoot scheduled, please contact the photographer directly to cancel. A phone number will be provided at the time of booking.
*you may choose to keep your scheduled apt as is regardless of weather and shoot interiors. A separate appointment would need to be scheduled to shoot the exterior. If weather is harsh, exteriors can be done at the photographer’s discretion (assuming no harm will be done to equipment or any persons on site etc).
I took photos last year; will they still be on my account?
Yes, all jobs we do for you will always be stored in your Rise Media Portal (RMP) account. We never delete them.
How will I receive my photos?
When your professional photography is complete, you will receive a “Materials Completed” email that will lead you to log in to your Rise Media Portal (RMP)account. This is where all your content will always be stored.
Once there, you will see detailed instructions on how to easily proof and download your content.

Can I request a specific photographer or planner?

How much notice do I need to book an appointment?
Booking is done based on availability. We can often book as soon as the next business day. Please note, some photographers book up quickly! Please do reserve your slot as soon as you can especially if you’d like to secure a particular person to work with.
Can I shoot the interior and exterior photos on different days?
Shooting on different days means scheduling separate shoots. With that said, we are happy to go back as many times as you wish!
I only need one photo, is that possible?
We do have a 4 photo minimum to send a photographer on site. If you only need one photo, we recommend adding façade or amenity photos, or we can provide 4 options (angles) of the same room/ photo you wish to capture.
What should I do to be “Photo-Ready”?
Please be sure the property is clean and staged as you or the seller would wish for the property to be viewed/represented. While we can move small items on-site to enhance the image, we do not move large furniture or clean up prior to shooting. Keep in mind, some properties are rentals and tenants may not want their things to be touched or moved. With that said, there is the option to digitally remove items in post-production for an additional fee.
If you are having your headshot taken, please dress as you wish to be represented. The only recommendation we make is to
stay away from stripes.
