"We were introduced to Lynne when we decided to list our home for sale.  The process was incredibly professional.  She visited twice and after a few minutes of discussion with us, she went to work.  Her photos of the inside and outside were amazing.  It even made us want to reconsider selling!  I am a fairly experienced amateur photographer and it was easy to see why I am an amateur and she is a professional!  I will not hesitate to use her for anything from family to product photos in addition to the obvious real estate projects."

Emerson Dickey

"Lynne has been our go-to person for great photos of our lots, houses, and rentals.


She has a great eye for detail and space. She is always very professional in all that she does. We at Eagles Nest Realty LLC  and Waterfront Group  will continue to use Lynne for our photography."

"I had the pleasure of having Lynne Townsend do photos for a luxury home I had in the Roaring Gap area. She scheduled this in a very timely manner for me.


She is very professional, friendly, and just a great overall person. She sent the pictures to me in about a 24-hour turnaround.  The pictures were awesome! My seller was very pleased as I was.


I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting beautiful professional photography."

Bebe Payton,

"Beautiful vision and sense of when the light is there. Your work is lovely, stunning, glorious really. Evident is your love of it and your ability to see it. Thank you also for your willingness to put your work together as nicely and adeptly as you have so I and others could, as your other guest said, "see what you saw."

"Ms. Townsend,

We want to thank you so much for the fantastic photos you provided for our listing. We thought we had adequate photos but there is nothing like professional photography to showcase a home. Money well spent."

Lynne Townsend is a premier photographer.  She is pleasant and easy to work with, she is very intuitive and listens to the sellers/agents' visions.  Lynne aims to depict the home through the seller's eyes and show it to be at its very best.

Lynne aims to please all stakeholders and gets the home to shine with her photos. I highly recommend including her as part of the team in the listing and selling of a client's property!
