Tips For Twilight Real Estate Photos

Luxury homes at Lake of the Ozarks are trending, and one thing that can make them even better are twilight shots. When selling a luxury home at the Lake of the Ozarks, we make sure that an expert photographer will come out and showcase your home by capturing the exterior of the property at dusk. Here are a few ways you can prepare your home for a twilight shoot and how our team can help you grab the attention of potential buyers.

Prepare Outdoor Furniture

Taking a few moments to prepare the exterior of your home can give you the best possible chance for a great shoot. Before the photographer comes, make sure you take a few moments to remove the covers and add cushions to your outdoor furniture. You will also want to straighten up the outdoor furniture and consider staging the spaces. You can add towels and refreshments to spaces next to pools and firepits, and open up the umbrellas as long as they won’t block valuable views.

Outdoor Details

Much like with your day shoots, you will want to park your car either in the garage or down the road where it will not be seen. If there are any games or toys in the yard, you will want to have those cleaned up and stored away. You will also want to have your porches, patios and driveways cleaned beforehand.

Look at the Landscaping

If you want the best look for your home, hire a landscaper to come at least a day or two prior to your scheduled photoshoot and have them trim, cut the grass, replace the mulch, etc. You can also have your planters refilled with flowering plants and remove anything that is dead.

Add the Ambiance

Most twilight shoots will happen in a very short period around sunset. There is only a small window where the shots can happen, so you will want to make sure that you have the ambiance ready well before the photographer gets there. This is a great time to light fires in your fireplaces and firepits, and make sure the mood is just right.

Prepare the Pool

One reason twilight photos shine is through the feature of the pool. Pools look fantastic during twilight shoots, which means you will want to make sure that it is photo-ready. Before the photographer gets there, make sure to have the pool lights and water features turned on where desired. Keep in mind that water features can make certain sidewalks look wet in the images, so think about that before you turn all of them on.

Turn on the Lights

All interior lights that have windows will need to be turned on, as well as all exterior lights. You will want to get all of the landscape lights and pool lighting as well. You may have to turn some lights off, but the photographer will direct you in that - some floodlights can detract from the ambiance of the twilight.
