How to Hire a Travel Photographer to Take Your Vacation Pics—and Why You Should

“I was initially skeptical about this whole thing. After all, every smartphone has a built-in camera, many of which have gotten pretty high-tech. Most travelers seem to have no trouble getting vacation pics for free, as evidenced by the hordes of selfie snappers blocking views of tourist attractions in every corner of the globe. But unless you want to rely on those long-armed selfie shots for every photo or are fine with repeatedly bugging strangers to take pics of your crew (always a gamble), someone in your travel entourage will inevitably get left out of the snap. “Our largest audience is moms,” Nicole Smith, the founder of the longest-established travel photography marketplace site, Flytographer, told me. “Some 40% of our bookings are families and it’s mostly moms who book because they’re the ones always chronicling the memories but never get to be in the photos.” Read the full story.


How to Prepare for Proposal Pictures in Any Situation, According to the Pros

“When it comes to capturing the big question and their reaction, don’t leave the photos to chance,” says Nicole Smith, founder and CEO of Flytographer, a platform with more than 500 professional photographers for hire around the world who specialize in proposal pictures and other types of photo shoots. “Work with your photographer to plan exactly how the moment will unfold.” Smith recommends creating a timeline or game plan for your photographer that’s as specific as possible, all the way down to the little details, like where you’ll be standing and who will be facing which direction. A game plan is especially important if you’re proposing in a busy location or unfamiliar place. In those scenarios, creating a map can be extra-helpful, says Smith. Read the full story.

Luxury Travel Mom
“Flytographer is the perfect way to capture the family photos you dream of. When everyone is relaxed, mom included, magic happens. Our Charleston photographer captured those unguarded moments with our children that we could never capture on film ourselves and would be missed by a ‘pose and shoot’ photographer. This is the second session we’ve booked, but will not be our last. I might even book future vacations based on Flytographer availability. Not kidding.”  – Kim-Marie Evans

Traveling Panties
“This is the greatest souvenir I could ask for. I don’t need some stupid trinket that I’ll toss in 2 months, I would much prefer to capture the best part of my vacation: the love and the city.

Bruised Passports
“We instantly fell in love with the concept because it takes our motto of ‘collect experiences and memories’ to another level altogether. The two of us don’t have too many photos together because Vid is usually behind the camera. Looking at these photos makes us feel all warm and fuzzy!” – Savi and Vid
