Philadelphia start-up tops the list of real estate photography companies

Award Badge

Alcove Media is pleased to announce that it has been ranked as one of the top twelve out of 338 real estate photography companies in Philadelphia. According to, an independent third party organization, Alcove Media was selected based upon the following criteria: reputation, credibility, experience, availability and professionalism. Alcove Media is a start-up media company that has quickly taken the lion's share of the market in Philadelphia, completing 3,000 shoots in 2016. 

Alcove Media has placed itself firmly on the list of marketing essentials for Philadelphia’s top real estate agents. To keep up with these agents and the pace of the market, Alcove Media provides the photos the next business day.  David Arena, CEO, founded the company in 2014 after he himself, as a realtor, found working with professional photographers that were talented and efficient was not the norm for the industry. David set out to change that by starting his own company. Since 2014 David has not had time to look back. He has been building a responsible company, headquartered in Philadelphia, with the number one priority being customer service.  "I don’t ever want to lose sight of the most important thing, which is serving our clients. Excellent customer service is the most basic thing we can do that will make us successful," says David Arena, CEO.

Alcove Media has organically grown as David has personally trained each photographer and videographer to ensure quality control of the product line. That care is a demonstration of the difference between Alcove Media and other media companies. Client's of Alcove Media get the full team and the guarantee of excellent photos, not just a freelance photographer.

“When you have a quality product priced at a fair rate and backed by our level of customer service, word travels quickly around the real estate community,” says Colleen Murphy, Chief Operating Officer.

Thanks to an increase in rental prices coupled with a steady rise of home prices for sellers, low interest rates for buyers and low unemployment, the real estate market has sustained its momentum in a very real way. Home buyers are on their phones doing their own research and Alcove Media assists sellers and their listing agents in making a compelling first impression.

As the market demands more information, Alcove Media has responded - adding to their photo and video packages the option of aerial photos and videos (provided by drones), virtual staging, and staging partnerships with local companies.  Research has shown that professional photos sell houses up to twice as fast as when realtors or owners take the photos themselves.
