I HIGHLY recommend Joe. I worked with him on a gift to give my parents on my wedding day. I sent him a picture of the church they got married in and he recreated it perfectly. He called and made sure he had my vision exactly right. I was effected by hurricane Matthew and he even called to ask if shipping it to my venue would be better since he knew I lived in an area that experienced a lot of damage, which was very considerate. I can't wait to give it to my parents this Saturday!

This was beyond my expectations, such a perfect sketch. The details were amazing. Joseph was so accommodating. Nothing was too much trouble, he was able to use more than one photo and incorporate some items that were missing. Five stars is not enough!

Joe did an amazing job capturing my clients new home. He made sure the details were correct and looked amazing. He communicated with me through the drawing and made sure I had the picture before closing.

Additional policies and FAQs
Start with a convo(email) to me so I can give you an estimated delivery ( from receipt of photos), answer any questions you may have and instruct you on supplying the photos for reference.

Place your order and make payment through Etsy. When I receive your order, I will let you know how to get the photos to me by email or regular mail.
Within 24 hrs of placing your Etsy order I will contact you to get the process started.

You can mail or email me your photos ( emailed photos should be high resolution for color & detail ). I will let you know when I receive your photos. All photos sent will be returned.
PHOTOS: Your photos should be of the angle & preferred view. A slight angle showing the full front and a little of either side is better than a straight on view. A full view of the home in 1 photo is preferred. You can take the picture as far back as possible and move closer for the detail shots. Detail photos can be of anything which is important that can not be seen clearly in the main angle photo. Windows, doors, home detail etc. Make sure the sun is on the house for shading & correct color. Avoid taking photos at midday because the sun is directly on top of the home and the front is usually in shadow and dark. Do not take photos at days end. Do not photograph on an overcast day the colors will be washed out.
You may also include additional instructions on what to add or eliminate( telephone poles, cars, neighbors home etc. I can create the artwork in the season of your choice. When creating a color piece it's best if you indicate the colors you see in the photos because everyone sees color differently ( especially on different monitors and printers) We will work together thru the creative process to create a lasting memory.
