WHAT WE DO

EB Photography is located in Apex, NC and specializes in providing residential, interior, commercial and architectural images.

Our photos include a combination of multiple lighting setups and exposure blending techniques that are processed to the upmost quality reproduction. Each photo will be edited in 3 different softwares and individually manipulated to produce a crisp and vibrant photograph.

Twilight photography and video captures radiant hues of your beautiful listing. Shoots begin about a half hour before the sun sets, and capture the emotion and essence of a North Carolina sunset.

The dramatic shades of light from a Twilight photography shoot make photos more visually interesting, and memorable.

Over 80% of buyers find online photos to be critical when searching for a home.
