Interior Design Photoshoot

Behind the scenes at our interior design shoots

What does it take to get the final beautiful photos you see on interior designer’s websites and social media pages? Let us tell you, A LOT! However, getting these final beautiful photographs to showcase the hours of work and love that have been poured into every project are worth it. Here is a sneak peak of our day on site to capture these gorgeous spaces.

We were so lucky to be able to photograph two projects that we have spent so much time working on! Photoshoot days are always very busy days and require a lot of planning. There are so many things that go into a shoot day to get those beautiful final images.

We typically start planning for photoshoots at least 3 weeks in advance. We make a shot list of all of the spaces and angles that we think that we want to capture. Three weeks is usually enough time for us to gather any small items that we think can add to the space and final photograph.

Every project is a different service level and we do not always do all of the accessorizing for every space we design. For those projects, we will bring in accessories to style the space to completion. We always bring in more items than we need so that we have options to pull from. In addition to any decorative accessories, we will always bring in florals and greenery as well as our shoot day bag.

Shoot Day Bag:

  • Scissors
  • Shears (to cut florals and greenery)
  • Blue Tape
  • Paper Towels
  • Trash Bags
  • Swiffer
  • Wipes
  • 3M Tape
  • Scotch Tape
  • Glass Cleaner (for mirrors or glass doors)
We start with a clean palette if we haven’t already styled a space for our clients. So we remove anything that they may have and start pulling items from our inventory–adding and subtracting to get the look we are after. We brought in pillows and coffee table books and accessories to style for our client. We had previously styled the kitchen so not much more was needed there.

Fun doormats are always a good item to bring in if you are shooting the front exterior or porch of the home. Here we layered two rugs for a fun and playful effect.

We had an empty corner that we need to fill and decided to bring in a metal ladder and add throws to it in order to add height and texture to this corner.
Our photographer shoots tethered, which means that we can get preview the shot on the computer so we can make any tweaks and adjustments as needed.

Our second photoshoot of the day was capturing a full bathroom remodel and partial kitchen remodel. The style is traditional, classic and warm. Bathrooms require the least amount of styling and we typically bring in candles, florals, soaps and rugs to dress them up and get them photo ready!

Photography is such an important part of an interior design business. Having beautiful photographed spaces to showcase on your website and reach other potential clients is important for growth.
