This is really a multi part answer.

  • Snap2Close Real Estate Photography provides photography and other media services for the real estate industry. We do not photograph weddings, events, portraits or other types of photography. We truly specialize in real estate photography, videos, 3D tours, and interactive floor plans. We don’t put up signs or hang lockboxes.

  • We use only professional grade full frame DSLR and mirrowless cameras. Most of our competitors use prosumer or consumer cameras with cropped sensors that simply do not capture the details needed to make your listings stand out.

  • Our photographers are all seasoned professionals. We do not hire inexperienced individuals and hand them a cheap camera after a few days training.

  • Read our reviews on this website or on Google. You will find they are all 5 Star Reviews. Why? Because we excel in customer service, professionalism and quality. Simply look at our photos on this website. We promise you that none of our competitors so proudly show so many of the photographs.

Snap2Close uses an online scheduling system. On our website’s menu you will find “Order”. Click the menu item and you will be presented with a short video tutorials on how to schedule your shoot. Click here if you want to view the tutorial.


Many of our photographers at Snap2Close have ARMLS Supra Lockbox access. We just need your 7 digit CBS code. If the home has a contractor lockbox then we will need the combination number. Please be sure to enter this number when scheduling your photo shoot. Remember, you can always log back into your account before the shoot date to make adjustments to the total square footage, to add special instructions for our photographers and to enter 7 digit CBS code.


Any day but trash day. Trash cans littering the street make it extremely difficult for our photographers. It is not their job to move trash cans or other clutter from the exterior of the home.


This fee goes directly to the photographer to pay for their drive time, gasoline cost, and wear and tear on their vehicle. 0 to 30 miles is 35 cents per mile. 31 miles and beyond is 70 cents per mile.


Our photographers are out in the field photographing back to back shoots sometimes as late as 9:30pm (in the summer) and 7:00 pm in the winter. They then need to upload hundreds of very large sized high quality RAW photos over the Internet to our corporate server. The uploading process can take up to several hours.

Our editing team works at night so once the photos are received they are immediately uploaded to our HDR processing system and edited by our professional editing team. This process can take several hours.

While we guarantee delivery the next day, we do our best to get them to you by 1:00 pm. Photoshoots or Saturday and Sunday will not be delivered until Monday.


You will be notified via email when your photos and videos are ready. Included with the email will be link to a complete set of video tutorials about how to download your photos, best use your media and make the most of your complimentary branded and unbranded virtual tour property websites and flyers.

Regretfully we must charge a late cancellation or rescheduling fee if the photo shoots that are canceled or postponed less than 24 hours of the scheduled shoot. This $79 fee really doesn’t begin to cover the lost revenue opportunity because someone else could not book that same time.

Each of our photographer request different off-days, but there are usually two or three photographers available on the weekends. However, we do not shoot twilight photos on Saturday or Sunday nights.


$79 plus our travel fee.


This responsibility lies solely with the Realtor and/or homeowner. Our photographers usually have a very tight time schedule and do not have the time to move or rearrange items. We provide you with a very detailed home preparation list that should be given to the homeowner. Click here to download a PDF version of this letter. In our experience, the less clutter and best cleaned homes sell much faster than those that are not well prepared.


As a general rule we like to plan for one hour for each 1,000 square feet. Larger homes with larger rooms may take less time. When you place your order with Snap2Close you will see the time allotted for your photo shoot.

While every photoshoot is different and Snap2Close assumes that photoshoots will happen at homes with people and or pets present. However, if the home is vacant and no one is present then time onsite will be much less.

During your ordering process you will be able to review all of your charges and download a PDF version of your invoice. Your orders will always remain online and you can easily access your order to download your invoices at any time.
