Blenheim Homes – Bayberry – NJ Architectural Photographer
A few months back, we were contacted by builder Blenheim Homes to provide an estimate for some high-end architectural & interiors photography on their new development Bayberry located in Middletown, DE. They mentioned that they were looking for a set of commercial photographs from 9 model homes and some community amenities to be used in a host of marketing materials and for submission in an upcoming homebuilders’ competition. Over the course of the next month, Blenheim evaluated the estimate submissions from 6 top architectural photographers in the area, and they decided they wanted to work with us! Very cool! They mentioned that their marketing team & art directors really liked how bright and colorful our images were, and they were impressed with the breadth of our portfolio of work.
We scheduled the sessions for the last 2 weeks of October, which coincided pretty nicely with the peak time for fall foliage. The goal overall was to photograph the homes while the tree still had their leaves, as the exterior images would look much better this way. While we were too late to get images with green leaves, we really did time things perfectly regarding the beautiful fall colors!
The scope of the project was rather ambitious, as Blenheim was looking for 100 commercial images. The community was broken into two separate subdivisions, North & South, once of which was designated as an adult community (55+). Bayberry was also quite a sprawling development. If my memory serves me correctly, one portion contained 1,200 homes, and the other would eventually have around 1,500. Wow!
We certainly had our work cut out for us, and of course, we encountered a number of challenges along the way! One of these was weather, since there were a number of storms rolling in. The last thing we needed was a gloomy images or even a very large storm to knock the leaves off of the trees! Altogether, we managed to work around any of the challenges, and we came up with a beautiful set of imagery for the folks at Blenheim. We’ll be blogging about the individual model homes and their images in the coming weeks, but in the meantime, here’s a look at some of the sneak peeks we’ve already shared on social media! Enjoy, and we hope you’ll swing by again to see things as we roll out the images from this, and other architectural & interior photography projects!
