Executive Testimonials

(Don't just take our word for it!)

Chris [President of CS3] and his team have been a wonderful partner. The end product, flexibility and timeliness provided have exceeded my expectations.

Elizabeth Baldwin - Brand Marketing Director, Corporate

We have worked with CS3Design on a yearlong partnership that encompassed over 60 of our apartment communities. The 360 tours that CS3Design has produced have all turned out amazing. The tours are excellent tools for our websites, Google business listings, and social media accounts. The tours also allow future residents a great glimpse into what our apartment communities offer!

Carmen Garrison - VP Marketing

We selected CS3 as the exclusive photography agency for the Dignity Memorial® website redevelopment project. From scouting locations to high quality photography, CS3 exceeded our expectations. The photo shoots, which took place throughout hundreds of locations across North America, were executed on time and on budget. Given the sensitive nature of our customer-centric business, the CS3 team demonstrated a high level of respect and flexibility. Our team was impressed with the professional execution of such a complex project.

Kelly Levar - Director of Digital Marketing

We engaged CS3 early 2017 and we have not only greatly benefited from our partnership, theyve become a staple in our digital marketing strategy. From communication with our marketing team and scheduling projects to nurturing our standards by delivering a superior product, their team continues to raise the bar in digital media for our industry with high service levels and proper execution.

Susan Goff - Director of Brand Management

We truly love working with the entire CS3 team . From the flexibility in Scheduling to the flawless delivery of our resorts images it was truly a pleasure to work with CS3. We would highly recommend them for all projects no matter how big or small .

Ryan Galbraith - Revenue Manager

CS3 always provides us with high quality content and is always available for questions. The process is easy and allows me to schedule shoots quickly and efficiently.

Ben Beard - Senior Director of Marketing

Working with CS3 over the last 3 years while they photographed our 5,000+ properties has been a great experience & the CS3 team could not have been better to work with. Their ability to schedule, shoot, deliver, and invoice hundreds of properties at a time was impressive. The CS3 team were always available to answer questions and concerns via the phone or email at any time & their massive network of photographers were all professional and responsive.

Erin McDonald - CHI Quality Assurance Photography

Working with the CS3 team has really freed up my schedule and made my life easier. Instead of wasting time searching for photographers in various parts of the US, reviewing their capabilities and then making contact to get pricing and availability – I am now able to make one phone call! They are quick to respond, turnaround photos after the shoot and they also have the capability to do additional retouching as requested. CS3 has an extensive network of photographers, and we receive the same quality of photos every time!
