Recently, I was invited down to the beautiful and sunny Mayan Riviera to photograph a vacation rental property in Puerto Morelos Mexico. Here is how I photographed this AirBnB property.
The owners have rented out “La Palapa” for nearly 20 years and were wanting to up the game with regards to the photos of the home for a new listing on Air BnB. The goal was to have a complete set of professional photos of the property to showcase “La Palapa” in all of it’s glory, including the new pool!
During a very busy Fall wedding season, I hopped a plane using credit card reward points and brought my trusty assistant/stylist along for the journey.
We landed around midday and immediately began photographing the beautiful two story home rental, beginning with the second floor.
Once the second floor was settled, we hid our bags up there and I continued to photograph the ground floor, with it’s stucco walls and unique fine art decor.
Nora prepared lunch and Kristina helped gather plants from the garden to add a pop of color and life to each room. As each room was settled, we called out “Hot Set!” so I could photograph the AirBnB rental property in peace.
The second day, I finished photographing the first floor and then focused my camera on the exterior of the property. Between a stunning new pool and outdoor grill, we set the stage with a beautiful sunset dinner outside with grilled salmon, veggies and margaritas.
