Real Estate Twilight Photography
Real Estate Daytime photos are your bread and butter. Twilight photos are an add-on that can greatly enhance your marketing. Twilight photos are rare, I’d say maybe 1 in 10 listings have them, so they can help make your listing standout.
In my experience with advertising using twilight photos, I have found that listings that have them generate more page views and more calls so they really do work.

What is Twilight Photography?
A twilight photo is a photo taken at night. Sometimes called Dusk Photos or evening photos, they are some of the most difficult photographs to take for a few reasons- one twilight doesn’t last very long so you have to be quick! And two, if you are taking photos are night there isn’t a lot of light, so they require a lot of post-production to make the final picture.
How long does twilight Last?
Twilight lasts for about 30 minutes after the sun goes down below the horizon. The length of Twilight changes depending on the time of the year. It is shorter during the Spring and Fall Solstice and longer during the Spring and Winter equinox. Really good twilight photographers know how to check online to find out when the twilight is on any day so they can get to the shoot early to set up. Twilight is sometimes called “The Magic Hour” but term Is used more for landscape photography, and closer to the end of the twilight is known as the “Blue Hour” – which is a little darker and the light spectrum skews to blue right before the sun drops far enough below the horizon that there is no longer any visible light.
How much does a twilight photoshoot cost?For just one good shot of the front exterior it is about $200. For a full set of pictures inside and out Expect to pay $400-$500.
