Travel is all about creating lifelong memories and what better way to capture them than with photos. We take tons of photos of places or things and miss out on capturing the most important part of the trip...our loved ones. However, selfies or asking someone else to take a photo for you can be risky. Maybe they cut off someone's head or end up recording a video instead (I've had this happen personally 😳).
What's the solution? Schedule a photo shoot. There is an awesome company, Flytographer, that has local vacation photographers in over 190 destinations.
So, how does it work?
1. You select your destination and choose your photographer. The Flytographer concierge will help you plan your shoot.
2. There are several plans to choose from. Anywhere from 30 minutes up to 2 hours. Pricing for 30 minutes is $250 and includes one location and 15 photos. 2 hours is $650 and includes multiple locations and 60 photos. There are plans in between. The most popular plan is one hour for $350 with 30 photos and 1-2 locations nearby.
3. You meet your photographer in your destination and capture your vacation memories.
4. Your photos will be emailed to you within 5 business days of your shoot.
Flytographer Client Experience
My clients Andrew and Meredith experienced first hand the magic of Flytographer on their honeymoon in Maui (you can read my blog post about their honeymoon here). They received a one hour Flytographer photo shoot as a wedding gift. Meredith emailed Flytographer and found a photographer in Maui that she liked. She booked their photo shoot for the last full day of their honeymoon. They were even featured on Flytographer's Top 10 Honeymoon Photos of 2017! Check it out here!
"We loved our time with our photographer -Maria- and the images she took were incredible!"
What happens if Flytographer isn't available at your destination?
I had clients who honeymooned in Jamaica (read about their honeymoon story here). At the time Flytographer was not available in Jamaica, although I recently found out they do have someone in Kingston now.
I advised my clients to take advantage of the resort photographer. Many resorts have their own photographers onsite. My clients were staying at Couples San Souci. They scheduled a time for a photo shoot, which was free, they just had to pay for the images they wanted.
Last year I was in Aruba on a FAM trip. Unfortunately the hotel I was staying at did not have a photographer and Flytographer is not available yet in Aruba. Aruba has one of the world's best beaches, Eagle Beach, and I wanted to capture that beauty and get a few business photos so I researched local photographers and arranged my own photo shoot.

"Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever... it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything." ~ Aaron Siskind
