Property Readiness:

The Client is expected to have the property “camera ready” prior to the beginning of the arrival window. This includes all cleaning and furniture staging.

We ask that you have your clients review our Getting Ready checklist.

If the Photographer arrives at the appointment and the home is not ready, the property will be shot “As Is”.

We value your feedback and input for choosing the best angles to photograph the property. If you would like to give input, please meet the Photographer at the beginning of the appointment or add notes in the “comments” section of the order.

Absent your input, the Photographer will use his/her best judgment and experience to decide which angles will best highlight the property.

Order Details & Accuracy:

The Client is expected to have accurately entered or communicated all pertinent information at the time the order is placed. We reserve the right to update incorrect information and adjust the pricing of the order to accurately reflect the order (ex. The client enters that the property is 1,200 square feet but it is actually 2,400 square feet).

Our pricing reflects the cost for a single dwelling in a residential household. For commercial or multi-unit properties, please contact our office for a personalized quote.

Reschedule/Cancellation Policy:

Confirmed appointments canceled within 4 hours of the appointment start time are subject to a $50 cancellation fee.

We will wait for 15 minutes after the scheduled appointment time before leaving.

Please note: The entire shoot amount may be assessed if we arrive at the property to find the shoot is cancelled (including being denied access to the property.)

Appointments that cannot be completed due to weather issues (ex. Our Photographer is unable to fly the drone due to rain/wind, or too heavy of rain to capture exteriors), will be rescheduled after contacting the Realtor and the $50 cancellation fee will be waived.

We may waive the fee for other reasons at our discretion.

Service Area Coverage:

We service a 60-mile driving radius from Fort Plain, NY 13339. Appointments with the following ranges will receive trip fees:

Properties outside the 60-driving mile radius are beyond the regular service area and will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. If approved an additional $2 per mile over 60 miles will be assessed.

Driving radius is based on google map directions from our pinned location in Fort Plain NY.


All sessions are booked and paid for on our website. Watermarked images will be available for preview before you pay. Payment will be required to download finished un-watermarked media. New York Real Estate Photography reserves the right to cancel, postpone, or refuse to schedule subsequent photo shoots until account is made current.


You are provided the opportunity to preview the images, with watermarks, before paying. Please check the images carefully before paying for them. Once you pay, the sales is final. There will be no refunds after payment unless we are at fault (such as we deleted the images in your account).
We will not be at fault if the property was not properly cleaned and staged before our arrival and you approved us to shoot anyway.
Please read, understand, and follow our preparation tips to avoid misunderstandings. https://nyrephotos.com/getting-ready-for-a-shoot
