Professional Hotel Photography for Fairfield Inn & Suites – Asheville/Weaverville | Weaverville, NC
Marriott Hotel Photography
One of the main sources of our professional hotel photography business is management companies we have worked with repeatedly. We love the long term relationships we have built so we were excited when we had a new partner from Crown Hotel Management to help us on our hotel photo shoot for the Fairfield Inn & Suites – Asheville/Weaverville. Although we have photographed more than 800 hotels for more than 40 different brands, Fairfield Inn and Suites remains one of our favorite brands to photograph. This new hotel was lovely but as with many new hotels, there were some wrinkles that needed to be ironed out…literally!
What Made This Hotel Photo Shoot Unique
Proper preparation is the key to meeting all of the Marriott brand standards but when dealing with a new hotel and a new management team, issues are bound to happen. There was a miscommunication and we arrived to find out that the hotel was not ready for our shots. To make matters worse, the weather was threatening to turn stormy so we were faced with quite a challenge.
This is why our long term clients hire us over and over again! We jumped in and I gave poor Stephanie from the management company a crash course in how to prepare a hotel for a photo shoot. She and I ironed the sheets, prepared the rooms and all of the other things that should have been done prior to our arrival. We did this a little frenetically but we laughed and made the best of the situation.
The photos turned out great and Stephanie and I have forged a bond that just strengthens the relationship we have with Crown.
Mixing Business With Pleasure
This was a quick trip and though Asheville is one of my favorite places to visit, we didn’t have time for anything other than the business we were there to do!
Thanks to everyone else at the Fairfield Inn & Suites Asheville/Weaverville and to Stephanie McQuade from Crown Hospitality Management for making this situation turn out much better than it started. We definitely enjoyed our stay and look forward to visiting again when we can stay longer.
