Hotel Photography for Drury Inn and Suites – Knoxville West
We are the only approved hotel photographer for Drury Hotels which means that we get to travel all over the country photographing their properties. The Drury Inn and Suites – Knoxville West was one of their brand new hotels so we got to capture new photos to show off their property after it opened. It’s a nice benefit of our job that we get to be among the first people to see new properties.
We photographed 7 different room types at the hotel so it was a busy shoot but one of the things we love about photographing hotels for Drury is that their rooms are so consistent and easy to prepare. Prior to any shoot, we send the property our hotel photography guidelines as well as the brand’s photography guidelines. Since Drury used our guidelines to write theirs, the properties have a good idea of what is expected for them to prepare for their photo shoot.
Sometimes, hotels choose monochromatic color schemes for their rooms which is pretty but doesn’t always photograph as well as a room with some pops of color. We loved the contrast of the blue and orange in the guest rooms. The blue and orange accents against the crisp white sheets made for a nice contrast on those photos. That same blue and orange color scheme in the dining area also photographed well.
The weather was perfect which made for great exterior photos as well as allowed us to get out and explore the local area. I lived in Knoxville many years ago so I enjoyed spending some time there while we were in town to photograph the hotel. Knoxville is one of those cities that is on our way to a lot of destinations. We drive through there frequently but rarely do we stop.
We thank everyone at the hotel who worked so hard to get ready for our arrival.
