1. Adventure outfit inspiration

So you’ve decided on your destination and you’ve booked your personal Flytographer, but now what? You may not realize that the clothes you wear can also greatly impact how your travel memories turn out. 👗 While there are exceptions to the rules, here are a few items of clothing we recommend you avoid wearing for your adventure photo shoot:

  • Baseball caps, hoodies, or T-shirts with logos, brands, cartoons, or public figures. This goes for children too. 🧢
  • Busy patterns and really bright colours.
  • Anything too casual (such as strap tops with bra straps on display, sweatpants, white T-shirts with subtle armpit stains, strapless tops, jerseys). 👙

Now you know what not to wear, here are some of our favourite adventure outfit ideas that allow you to play it safe. All our photographers have found that these outfit choices create some of the best photos for you to cherish forever:

  • Weather-appropriate clothing (raincoats if it’s raining, thick jackets if it’s snowing, etc.).
  • Durable, comfortable footwear if heading out on a hike or if you need to walk to your photo shoot location. 👟
  • Warm, cozy sweaters or layers, especially for autumn and cold-weather shoots.
  • Coordinated clothing for family shoots.

The clothes you wear on your photo shoot will also depend on the type of photo shoot you are looking for. Use this opportunity to dress up a little, and if you’re looking for more inspiration, why not read our blog posts on what to wear during an engagement shoot and the best colours for family pictures outside?

Some of the most beautiful locations for an adventure include hidden gems in Europe, the Grand Canyon, Cape Town, Reykjavik, Bali, and Banff.

3. How to pick an adventure route in any city

Picking your route through any city is an exciting way to explore new places and have unique experiences to add to your travel diary. Depending on your chosen destination, you may have a list as long as your arm of must-see attractions and locations across the city. You’ll want to plan a route that encompasses as many of these as possible, while also giving you some high-quality photos along the way. 🏙️

Some of the best ways to pick an adventure route in any city are:

  • Following your Flytographer’s recommendations for photoshoot start times and routes, and asking them for general advice.
  • Reading our Route Blog for more information on choosing the best kind of route for you.
  • Putting an off-the-beaten-path route into your shoot vision or selecting a route from the city page with the tags “natural beauty” or “off-the-beaten-path” when making your request with us.

Remember, your adventure route doesn’t have to be lengthy or physically demanding and can be as simple as you want. The length of your route will also depend on the package you decide to select. 🚶‍♀️🚶‍♂️ But the key thing to remember is that your adventure route is all about embracing the spirit of exploration, discovery, and making memories.

4. Occasions to celebrate the adventure

You can celebrate adventure on any occasion, no matter how small. You could be celebrating your first solo adventure, a once-in-a-lifetime family trip, or just a weekend away with your best friend. But sometimes, celebrating the really special occasions makes them just a little bit more memorable.

Whether you want to capture the delight on your partner’s face when you propose, your destination wedding 💍, a honeymoon, or a big birthday, our Flytographers are here to make that dream come true.

A photoshoot gift card or travel photo album can make the perfect anniversary gift for your parents, a birthday gift 🎁 for your loved ones, or simply a great keepsake for yourself. Always remember the good times you had and the special memories you made with printed 4×6 photos, a “My Adventure Book” filled with keepsakes and photos of the awesome places you’ve been, and a little gift box with a Flytographer gift card, ready for your next adventure.

5. Adventure photo book

Whether you’ve spent money on a photoshoot or taken a hundred photos yourself while away, nothing is more disappointing than keeping those photos hidden away, never to be looked at again. So why not turn those photos into a book filled to the brim with adventure, memories, and love on every page? 💖

Adventure photo books can come in all sorts of layouts and designs. Whether you want one that looks more like a travel diary or memory book, or you want it to be more like a traditional wedding album or photo album, you are free to make it exactly how you want to. Our photo books come with professional-grade hard covers and are printed to a high quality to make your memories truly stand out. 📸

Top tip: You can purchase your photo book as part of a special discounted bundle at the same time you book your shoot! When booking your shoot, simply check the box that says, “Add a beautiful 8×8 hardcover photo book” at checkout.

6. Adventure scrapbook

If you’re more of a creative person, a photo album scrapbook might be a better keepsake for all your adventures over the years. Scrapbooks come in all sorts of different shapes and sizes and can include everything and anything you want them to. You could print out 4×6 photos 🖼️ from all your past Flytographer adventures and create a travel scrapbook. If you have kept old tickets for attractions, bus, train, or flight tickets, or even postcards, add these to your DIY scrapbook to create the ultimate travel journal.

Getting your kids involved in creating a family photo album scrapbook will give the whole experience that extra special edge as you relive the good times together and call it “Our Adventure Book Scrapbook.” For newborn photo shoots, another sweet idea is to create a baby memory book that includes their weight, name, and date of birth, and as they grow over their first year, add to it all their firsts (sentences, words, laughs, smiles, etc.).

Capturing Adventure Keepsakes

Creating an adventure photo album, travel journal, anniversary or wedding photo album, or family photo album is a delightful way to relive your travel experiences and share them with others. Whether you opt for a traditional DIY scrapbook 📚, a custom photo album book, or a digital album filled with travel memories, the key is to infuse it with your personal touch.

In this digital age, crafting a cherished physical keepsake allows you to tell your story of adventure for years to come. A photo book is the perfect anniversary gift, birthday gift, or wedding present that you and your family can look back on without having to endlessly scroll through your phone’s photo gallery. 📱 There is nothing better than physical copies you know will never get lost.
