Have you ever wished you had picture perfect vacation photos? Even if you know your way around a camera like we do, it's still a challenge getting actual photos of yourself without using a selfie stick. Thankfully, there's a service for that, and it's called Flytographer. I first heard about it through a friend who is a Flytographer in Seattle and Hawaii (her name is Erin Lodi, and I highly recommend her!). The service is pretty genius: Flytographer hooks you up with the perfect vacation photographer in 200 cities worldwide. This sounded like the perfect treat after our destination wedding in Tuscany.
How to Use Flytographer
Booking a photographer is pretty straightforward. Simply go to the Flytographer website and search by destination for a photographer. You can view their profile and portfolio of images, and also inquire about availability. Photographers are available for casual or formal vacation photo shoots, and some will even do wedding proposal photos. Prices vary depending on the photographer you choose and the length of the session.
In our case, we booked a 90-minute photo session in Milan with photographer Marta G. We met early in the morning in front of Milan's famous Duomo, hoping to capture images before the swarms of tourists showed up. Our session was wonderful and we took photos in a bunch of iconic spots including The Galleria and a local coffee shop. Photos were edited quite quickly and we received an online gallery within a week of the session.
