Customer Love for Gonçalo

"I'm so glad I came across Flytographer's website prior to our journey to Paris. Not only was this the best souvenir, but I didn't have to come home with only selfies of us. It's such a great idea and I would pay to do it again. Our photographer Gonçalo was great with us. He definitely captured some memorable moments! Thank you Flytographer!"  — Zabrina and Michael

"The session went by quickly, and it felt like we were hanging out in Paris with a good friend, which made the shoot a comfortable and enjoyable experience. In fact, the shoot was a real highlight in our Paris trip - it was such fun!   The photos are gorgeous, and were delivered so quickly that we were watching through them on the computer before we'd unpacked our bags.  We will be recommending Flytographer to everyone we know - and I hope that we'll be booking another Flytographer session again soon ourselves." — Bryan and Chelsea (see blog post here)

"We knew in advance the photos were going to be good, but the job Gonçalo did is beyond perfection. My brother and I couldn't be more grateful: now we have the perfect souvenir for our fantastic weekend in Paris! Gonçalo was amazing. It's so evident that he loves his work and he is such a professional. We did have a lot of fun during the session with him!" — Ioatzin

"We went to Paris to celebrate our first marriage anniversary and taking the pictures was the best idea we could ever have - they really are our best souvenir.  In the beginning, it was a little bit awkward but the photographer made us feel very comfortable and suddenly we were posing for the camera naturally. Gonçalo was very nice, on time and let us make suggestions! We are very happy with the photos and definitely will recommend Flytographer to everyone we know!"  — Alejandra & Julio (see blog post here)

"Our shoot with Gonçalo was set on a romantic foggy morning in Montmartre.  Despite that we'd never taken professional photographs, he immediately made us feel comfortable and relaxed.  Nothing was too contrived or overly planned, we just followed along a route that felt natural as we weaved around the early morning Sacré-Cœur tourists." - Kayla
