Stormy Weather & Professional Photography

I have a listing coming on next week, but we wanted exterior photos, since all the weeds were removed, and the yard was looking GOOD.    Unfortunately, my photographer had to cancel the night we really wanted the photos done, so he was there Thursday evening.

 

Of course, there were clouds rumbling around the area, and boy, the clouds sure put on a show!   Denver International Airport was shut down for a while, and there were alerts sent out for severe weather.

 

I had twilight photos taken of this new listing, so my photographer was there until almost 10 pm. and captured some GREAT photos.  Sometimes having really cool storm clouds behind a home is cool.   Sometimes you don't have a choice!

 

 

 

The clouds were really coming in by the time he was ready for the twinkle photos!

Hello Joan - proper professional property photography is a prerequisite.  Hmm, just pondering. . .

What a great listing Joan Cox.  When I tell Rick that we may have a storm coming through Sedona during a shoot, he says "Good".  Clouds make the photo. He does not like to deal with harsh sunlight and shadows.

Michael Jacobs I would never put a new listing on without professional photography.  My photographer is the best!

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® and Rick, I think storms clouds kind of give it a dramatic feel.   Jordan apologized, and said if I want him to redo the photos, he will.   I like the look, plus they kind of go with the colors of the house.

Storm clouds have always been a favorite topic for my photography. 

I hope you're having an awesome weekend Joan Cox

Debb, the photographer said - if I didn't like them, he would return to take new ones, but I like the dramatic skies.

Very cool!  Those are some dramatic photo.  Love it when that happens.  Mine were interesting too with a bright Arizona showing at dusk photographed   Love it when these happen!  Good luck - hope it sold for more than list! 

 

Arizona sunset!
