Columbus Real Estate Photography


Your clients expect the best marketing of their home. 


I strive to give your listings accurate, natural, and inviting pictures that attract multiple buyers and new clients. I utilize an editorial and lifestyle approach to highlight the most marketable features of your listing.


Photos are carefully composed so they are not overly wide. I balance the natural lighting with multiple supplemental lights for accurate color and texture. My technique has been crafted with hands-on mentoring with some of the best interior and architectural photographers in the business.

Give your real estate listing an editorial look.


My photography style ensures your listing is authentic and recognizable by your seller and prospective buyers. I want your brand to have high-quality images that sellers rave about and help you confidently compete for that next great listing. 


Editorial photography is a way to creatively capture the lifestyle of the home so your real estate listing stands out. I capture a mix of wide, vignette, and detail images whenever possible.

Consistency builds confidence in your brand and attracts new sellers and buyers. I am a full-time professional photographer who understands the importance of delivering predictable, high-quality real estate photos.

Magazine quality real estate photos?


Magazine quality? Sure, why not?!


Real estate is usually the biggest investment someone can make. Shouldn't the photos reflect the importance of that investment?


You'll quickly notice when we work together that I put in more time composing, lighting, and editing images to make your listing look its best. I strive to provide images that could be featured in a magazine, but on the MLS is just fine too.
