At Pink Flamingo Photography, we pride ourselves on our ability to capture moments that matter. When it comes to selling real estate, moments don’t get much bigger than breaking records! Recently, we had the pleasure of photographing an estate that did just that. Located at 205 Hacienda Drive on Merritt Island, this remarkable property set a new record for sales in the area. This exquisite estate sold in March 2023 for $6M, making it the second highest residential sale ever in Brevard County. Today, we’re excited to share our experience working on this one-of-a-kind shoot.

A Truly One of a Kind Property

Before we even arrived at the property, we knew we were in for something special. Situated on nearly 8 acres and including 550 feet of direct Indian River frontage, this impressive Mediterranean-style villa boasted soaring columns, arched windows, and a tile roof. We knew that to capture the full beauty of the home, we would need to get creative with our angles and lighting. Thankfully, our team was more than up to the task.

Over the course of a few days, we worked with the real estate agent, Stephanie Moss Dandridge to capture the property in its best light. From the grand foyer to the cozy family room, we sought to showcase every aspect of the home. We used wide-angle lenses to create space and depth, ensuring that potential buyers could get a true sense of the size and scope of the property. We also focused on the details, highlighting the finishes, textures, and unique architectural features that make this home truly stand out.

Inside and Outside of The Exquisite Estate

Of course, capturing the interior of the home was only one part of the job. With its lush landscaping and sparkling pool, the backyard of the property was just as important to showcase. To create the perfect shots, we utilized both aerial and ground-level photography. From above, we were able to capture the full sweep of the grounds and highlight the home’s position on its lot. At ground level, we focused on creating inviting, well-lit spaces that potential buyers could easily envision themselves enjoying.

As the final day drew to a close and we began to wrap up our shoot, there was a real sense of excitement in the air. We knew that the images we’d captured would be used to market the property and attract the attention of buyers from all over the world. As it turns out, we were right. Not long after the shoot, the home went under contract for a record-breaking price. It was an incredible accomplishment, and we couldn’t be more proud to have played a small part in it.

It’s About More Than Just The Photographs

At Pink Flamingo Photography, we understand that selling a home isn’t just about the property itself: it’s about the experience of buying a home and the emotions it evokes. Through our photographs, we strive to capture the essence of a home and convey its unique appeal to potential buyers. We’re beyond thrilled to have been a part of this record-setting sale and hope to continue capturing incredible properties like this one for years to come.
