Stand Apart From Your Competition and Get More Bookings

Did you know that less than 40% of vacation property listings feature professional photos. When you have only 5 second to catch a guests attention online, great photography is not an option. It's a necessity.

There is no excuse not to use professional photos to market your Hawaii vacation property. This can be a tiny guest room you have listed on Airbnb, a luxury million dollar oceanfront villa or a cookie cutter hotel room full of amenities. Either way you look at it, you have a story and an experience you are trying to sell to your potential guests.

Guests typically rest their eyes on the leading listing photo for 5 to 8 seconds before deciding on moving on to the next listing or clicking on yours. This is why excellent photography matters.

People planning a vacation in Hawaii have a picturesque vision of what their vacation will look like. And it all starts with visualizing where they will wake up in the morning, and where the will sleep at night… 

If you are not using amazing photos to attract your guests, then you are not going to be their first option. Feed their curiosity by providing a clear visual of what you are offering. It will pay off.

Attract Your Audience

A photo of a beautiful and bright colorful room showing ocean views is guaranteed to get more attention than a sloppy phone photo showing a no detail or atmosphere. Which would you click on?

Provide Information

People are visual creatures. We tend to assimilate visual information much better than remembering paragraphs of text and descriptions. A proper visual marketing strategy is able to convey all the important information about a property within a series of photos. Everything from the layout of the house to the thread count of the linens, This can all be communicated in a lasting visual manner which becomes essential during the final decision making stages.

Your photos need to strike a balance between the price you are asking and the quality you are offering. Coming as close as you can to that balance will result in two things, you will gain the TRUST of the viewer as you provided the best disclosure possible using great photography. And your guests will find the VALUE in your offering, since your photos match the quality of your accommodations.

Our Services:

Interior Photography

The interior photographs of a real estate listing require the right lighting, the perfect composition, and a good understanding of how images are perceived by a buyer. With the end goal being not just a record of a space but of images that spark curiosity and invite the viewer into the story that you want to share. The goal is to emphasize the property’s sellable qualities while downplaying the less attractive features.

Twilight Photography

Daytime photos work well for homes with ocean views and strong exterior colors that look great when the sun is hitting them. In fact, most homes in Hawaii are expected to be shot during the daytime.

However, a lot of properties can benefit from a twilight photo shoot when the glow of the lights inside, the absence of shadows from the sun, and a stunning sunset combine to create a strong and visually appealing image with a warm and inviting feeling.

Twilight photos also more closely portray the atmosphere and setting homeowners can expect to experience themselves as these are the hours when most people are home at the end of their day, creating a stronger emotional connection for the potential buyer

Advanced Photo Editing & Virtual Staging

Every image we produce is carefully and professionally edited to deliver the most impressive results. However sometimes some design elements may be overlooked, weather may be less than perfect on the day of the shoot, the lawn hasn’t perfectly grown in or needed repairs have not yet been performed.

In most cases, our dedicated photo editors can swap out a cloudy sky with a beautiful clear blue sky, fill in a patchy or discolored lawn, add fire to a fireplace, hide appliance wires, and even completely furnish a vacant room using virtual staging or convert a daytime photo into twilight. If you’re not sure, just ask, it can probably be done!

Real Estate Video Production

Property Walk-through Video

This is our entry level video, designed to show the flow of a house, typically starting at the entrance and making way through the important areas of the house using short cinematic cuts and transitions. This video focuses only on the interior and exterior of the property, and is shot during daytime hours.

Cinematic Property Video

Just as it sounds, this is basically a movie-quality video, utilizing many short and thought-out video sequences telling a story about the house and what it feels like to be there.

Cinematic videos show the house and surroundings, emphasizing style, design and detail, and include both daytime and twilight footage. These videos typically take at least full day to produce and may involve the use of drones, stabilizers, and other various equipment typically used on larger productions.

Depending on your goals and budget, we can include everything from models, staging, luxury lifestyle clips, narration and anything else you could imagine!

Lifestyle / Community Video

When you’re marketing a community, or neighborhood that affords a certain lifestyle, this can be a strong tool in the ongoing marketing of properties in that community.

The video would focus on community amenities and perceived lifestyle rather than focusing on an individual property. These videos are perfect for agents who like to “farm” properties a certain area and can benefit from using this video to market multiple listings.

Aerial Photography - A Different Point of View

Sometimes, you need a different perspective to show otherwise invisible features of your property, such as that new roof or PV system, large acreage, proximity to landmarks and other attractions.

By using drone and other aerial photography platforms, we are able to capture these features and create striking images that pack a lot of valuable information for your audience.

We can also produce digital 3D models of large areas of land, including structures and topography.
