Here’s a brilliant idea that I wish I had thought of! Many traveling couples go on vacation and come home to realize that they don’t have any decent photos together. Well, here’s the solution: Hire a photographer to do a photoshoot during your travels using Flytographer. They have photographers in major cities around the world (here’s the full list) so chances are if you’re visiting one of the world’s most popular travel destinations, they’ll have a photographer available.

Here’s how it works: Just browse the website’s photographer galleries to find the photographer(s) you prefer, book your shoot, then a “Shoot Concierge” is assigned who will confirm your shoot route, ideal times and photographer availability. When it’s all finalized, the Concierge will send you a “Shoot Scoop” with all the details. When you arrive to your shoot, you’ll meet your photographer 10 minutes before the shooting starts to connect in person, and review your shoot goals.

The shoots are fun and informal so you can just meander the streets together, chat and soak up the moment while your photographer casually capture memories. They want you to think of your photographer as a local friend who knows all the insider tips…including hidden spots, great cafes and places to avoid! They can do posed portraits if you prefer. Within five business days of your shoot, your Flytographer Shoot Concierge will send you the online gallery of your vacation memories and a link to download all your high resolution images in a single click. Prices vary, but the service starts at $250 for a 30-minute shoot. Click here to book (and use my code FLYFAN).

    A few questions.
    What do I get for the $250?
    Did you pay for the service?

    What about asking random strangers to take your photos? It’s free and the pictures look less fake.

      Let’s be real, phone cameras are great but under certain conditions, they will never match the quality of a DSLR. Also, great pictures with your own son/daughter are worth every penny.
