“I booked a photo shoot because we don’t like to interrupt our family vacations with selfies and videos, but we often go home without a commemorating picture. The pictures Julie took weren’t just vacation photos. I cried when I saw them, because she captured something much more intangible about our family. Our photos captured how we feel about each other, the joy we were having on our vacation, and what we find fun. They were candid and honest. I have nothing but the highest praise – we are privileged to have such priceless family photos. Plus, arranging a photo shoot was effortless.”

“My husband and I are celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary this year and we want to do something special. Our photographer Suri did an amazing job! We were in Bangkok during the crowning of the new king of Thailand and popular shooting spots such as the center of Bangkok (including the Grand Palace) was closed . Suri planned alternate routes but we experienced heavy traffic traveling between locations. Suri took the extra time and effort and took us to many beautiful places during the photoshoot. Suri made us feel very comfortable and took realły good care of us. He even bought bottled water for us. The photos turned out perfect and are exactly what we wanted. It was truly a wonderful and memorable experience and we are glad to have met such a passionate photographer. Thank you Suri and thank you Local Lens!”

““We planned out first trip to Spain not knowing 100% that I would propose to my girlfriend. I wanted my proposal to be special and when planning out trip, I just loved how Montserrat looked. My experience with Local Lens was beyond amazing! My photographer, Anna, was really easy to communicate with and was super nice. Anna offered to bring a bottle of bubbly and glasses to enhance our special experience. It was easy to plan and arrange our “surprise” proposal to my girlfriend. Everything was perfect.”
— David, Barcelona
““It was our first time traveling to UK, and our 6 year old son was traveling along. We thought it would be a great idea to have some nice professional photos in another country to capture some the good memories;?something we can always look back and reminisce. Our photographer, Natasha was amazing! She was very professional and efficient. It only took her a day or less to complete editing our photos, we got them the next day! Most importantly, the photos came out beautiful and stunning, we received so many compliments and good feedbacks from friends and families. We were so lucky to have found Local Lens and Natasha! We have been very satisfied with our overall photoshooting experience”
— Angela, London
““We were in Italy for our honeymoon and it happened to be the anniversary of our first date as well. We found Local Lens quite quickly and after an easy inquiry we found out that a perfect photographer was available on our special day. Booking and communication were very easy and quick and when we met Laura she was the most wonderful person and it was very easy to be in the photographs. She had a really good eye for perfect locations and even though due to our short trip and other plans for the holiday we had to choose a time when it was quite crowded she still managed to take excellent photographs which were not all crowded with other tourists. I initially had an issue downloading our photos, but I got help recently fast so in the end it wasn’t such a big problem. I was just very eager to get the pictures! Thank you!”
— Tiina, Florence
“Our Barcelona engagement photos turned out STUNNING! Despite it being a bit crowded and compact, our photographer knew all the best spots and captured it in a way that just made it seem like we had it all to ourselves. Highly recommend Local Lens. Gracias!”
— Karen, Barcelona
My fiancé and I went to Prague and a few other cities to celebrate our recent engagement and my 30th birthday. We were so happy to capture our engagement photos in a city we tracked to as we both love to travel. Our photo shoot allowed us to capture how happy we are and that we love to travel! Our photographer, Raifa was a great photographer and mini tour guide for our 90 package. It was our first time in the city and had no idea where to take pictures; she met us and took us to places that were unique and historic to the town. Our only request was to have a few photos with a crosswalk. She was able to get great pictures of us in multiple poses and beautiful crosswalks. She made us comfortable and we were able to be our ‘normal/goofy’ selves which was captured in all the photos. The photos came back right in time and came out GREAT! I had a few friends tell us that she made us look like models! I loved the whole experience! Your Facebook messenger corespondance made things easy, and our photographer who used the mail system through your website was easy to use! This was an incredible value for what we got! I’ve told friends about your service and plan to use it when we travel again! Thank you for this! – Danielle, USA
We were traveling to New York your for our mini moon. Even though we had gotten engaged in New York, we never had the chance to take engagement photos. So we thought, better late than never! The experience was wonderful. Vital was very responsive, professional, and friendly. He was very quick with edit turnarounds and made the whole process easy and fun.– Diana, USA
My friend recommended Cabo San Lucas! She said it was beautiful and had many family activities. I love pictures, making memories with my family! We had a wonderful experience with our photographer Ely. When we contacted her , she responded quickly. She is on email and whatsapp , it made it easy for appointments. The logistics were great. Ely came to our hotel and took us to all the neat places. We are a family of five with three teenagers, she was easy going and nice. The photos came out great, we will cherish them forever! If all of your photographers are like Ely, I will use this company again. – CJ, USA
I wanted a warm place with great sunset views to propose to my girlfriend. Puerto Vallarta turned out to be the perfect location. My girlfriend did not know I was going to propose, so it needed to be a surprise. Coming from the US, I was a little nervous about setting up a professional photographer, but then I stumbled upon Local Lens and noticed they had a photographer in PV. Jhovany was my photographer. He and his partner did a fantastic job. Great photos and they knew exactly what to do. It was a surprise so they had to play it cool – they definitely pulled it off. My girlfriend was shocked when I got down on one knee. I would highly recommend Jhovany if you need a professional photographer in Puerto Vallarta! They met me at Le Kliff restaurant as I had rented out the private dining terrace which was also a great value and one-of-a-kind scenery for the occasion. – CJ, USA
My husband and I had a terrible experience with our wedding photographer and we decided to try local lens while we visited Rome. It does have so many amazing sceneries. Our photographer was Barbara. She is amazing! Very easy to communicate with and we couldn’t have asked for a better experience. She went above and beyond and our pictures are gorgeous! – Lety, USA
My bestie and I do a Euro trip every year and last year we didn’t take ANY pics so this year we made it a point to hire a photographer to not only show us around the city but to take great pictures and you guys did not disappoint. My experience was perfect, Svetlana was really detailed, she knew all of the cool spots and she was really informative about the areas where we took pictures. Hands down the BEST photographer who I have ever worked with and I’ve worked with LOTS over the years. – Demario, USA
We traveled to Barcelona on a family vacation and chose it for its renown beauty. Our photographer Svetlana was AMAZING!!! she made us feel so comfortable during the photoshoot and the pictures came out STUNNING!! Our experience was as smooth and easy as possible! – Jason, USA
My friend used local lense and I loved the pictures I saw from her shot. So I wanted to give it a try while traveling through Europe. I wanted to use some of the shots for my business as a health and wellness coach showing my passion for travel. Claudia was awesome. She was on time, used our time together effectively taking pictures in many locations away from the tourists. She was friendly and just fun to work with. Plus she gave me some posing pointers as well. – Heike, USA
We planned a trip to Vienna, which has special sentimental meaning to my husband and his family. A friend of mine had scheduled a shoot when she went to Florence, Italy last fall so we decided to try this out. Andreas captured our personalities and we were very pleased with the images. I had a few ideas for locations, and Andreas went above and beyond to create special memories for us during the session. It was the beginning of a very memorable trip for us, and we received the photos quickly! – Paul, Vicki, and Emily, USA
I traveled with my girlfriend to Greece for our summer vacation. I wanted to propose to her in Mykonos because the scenery was both romantic and beautiful. The only problem was I didn’t know where and how to do it. I then decided to hire a photographer to not only capture the moment but to also help me plan this once in a lifetime occasion. I told my girlfriend we were meeting up with a friend of a friend who would show us around. And when she was least expecting it…I got on my knees to propose while my “friend” pulled her camera out for the perfect shot 🙂 Alessa was an amazing photographer and a HUGE help and planning my proposal. Right away when I contacted her, she was super helpful and very responsive. She gave some great ideas on what and where to do it. She even helped me come up with a “code word” so that she would know when I would propose so she can be ready with her camera. During the whole process she made me feel very comfortable even though at times I felt nervous. Everything was perfect and went to plan. Alessa was a big part of that. Thank you! – Jim, USA
It was our first vacation with the entire family for years, so I thought about doing a photo shoot in New York City for memories. We had Alberto as Photographer and He was GREAT. We had a great time with him, he was easy to direct and understood our wishes. Everything was great! – Mireille, USA
We traveled to Morrocco because we want to experience the culture and see the beautiful palaces and architecture. We loved our photographer! He is so dedicated in getting the perfect shot for us. We really love the final results. The pictures are amazing! I don’t think there is anything we needed more for this. We had a great experience. – Lily, USA
My family has been staying in the same timeshare for 20+ years and this year was our last, so we decided to commemorate it with a photoshoot. We had a fantastic experience and the shots turned out beautiful. They accommodated us with only a few days notice and it was super easy to manage. – Cindy, USA
We did our shoot in Rome. Alina was our photographer . She was professional and yet kind in her ways. She has a keen eye for what would look good photo location and light wise . She really was patient with my kids and seem to enjoy herself and love what she does . I highly recommend Alina – our photographs were all beautiful !!! ❤️ – Anna, USA
Our extended family decided to celebrate Christmas in Mexico as we hadn’t all been on a vacation together for many years. I wanted to capture the memories for my immediate family and found Local Lens online. Raul was great! He had fun ideas and was really easy to work with. We appreciated his suggestions and willingness to come to us. We were also impressed with how quickly he turned around the images. The website could be a little improved but I was told that new features are being released and updated so thats good news! – Michelle, USA
I captured my proposal in Cabo. Great photographer! Went out of her way to make sure things went smoothly. She was very responsive when arranging the time and place. She made the whole experience so easy and special. – Darlene, USA

Barcelona was the second stop in our honeymoon. We wanted some pictures to remember our trip at one of our favorite places. Our photographer was awesome!! She found us right away at the meeting spot. She even held my purse during the duration of the shoot. She had great location suggestions- extremely helpful as it was our first time in Barcelona. We communicated first on the locallens website and then through WhatsApp for immediate conversation. Easy peasy! – Camila, USA
I proposed in Heidelberg. I wanted to make sure we could get some nice photos right after the proposal while we were on a high. I also arranged to have photos of the proposal itself, which turned out great. Booking was really easy. Communication on the site was easy and we also connected on Whats App, thank you for capturing this moment for us! – Adam, USA
I booked a photographer to shoot my proposal to my fiancee. We live in Connecticut, but New York–and Central Park in particular–has always held a special place for us. Alberto was great! He was very helpful in giving recommendations for precise locations in Central Park and he made it easy to plan the day. He was super friendly and he expertly managed the surprise proposal, and the photos turned out great. After the initial proposal he led us to some other locations in Central Park for some more pictures, and those were great as well. All in all, we are extremely satisfied. One small thing that would be better –once we had our photos uploaded to the gallery, we had to add them to the cart one by one. It would be better to be able to select multiple photos at once. Other than that tiny detail, two thumbs way up! – Bradley, USA
We were in Rio for the 1st time and wanted some great photos. Priscilla was amazing! She was super talented and made us feel really comfortable. nothing, everything was great! – Trista, USA
Our story shortly – a wedding in Rome – something for us and our 2 friends, no crowds and no all this BOOM and BANG. A special moment in our lifes just for us. We would like to say a great “thank you” to Dmitry. Me and my wife aren’t the photo persons. With the help of Dmitry the photo shoot was very nice and comfortable experience – FUN. We were guided and supported by Dmitry during the photo-shoot. He did it great! Thank you for all your assistance during the booking and the photo shoot.– Tomo, USA
I booked a shoot for my proposal and the photographer helped me throughout the entire process. I couldn’t imagine anything that would have made this experience better, it was perfect! – Peter, USA

Wow! What a cool concept and wonderful experience! After inquiring about our dates, communicating directly with the photographer to plan was so convenient (I had to have outfit changes lol), and everything went perfectly. We loved our photographer in Marrakesh, she was so amazing to work with. Not to mention our gallery is BEAUTIFUL! Thanks guys! Till next time! – Casey, UK
My girlfriend and I just booked the Itsly trip for fun. Then it occurred to me that it would be the right time for me to propose. I originally thought I’d do it in Rome because every blog/website recommended that I get it out of the way on the trip. It turned out that it was raining for our first two days, which happened to be in Rome. So Florence became the plan. I booked Laura with Local Lens and heard from her within a day/day and a half.– Toussaint, USA
I decided to take my family to Spain because of the history, culture and good food! We chose to book a photographer because this trip is our daughters 3rd international trip and we wanted to ensure that we got the best professional pictures possible so we can cherish these memories forever. Our experience with Svetlana was AMAZING! She was so quick to respond to all of my questions, very professional and so patient with us and our daughter. Svetlana truly has an amazing eye and so much talent! We love how Svetlana captured my family in pictures and beyond thrilled with the results. I will definitely be recommending her services to ALL of my family and friends.– Vanessa, USA
We did a bucket list trip to Machu Picchu & Rainbow Mountain for our anniversary & wanted to document the special occasion with photos. Marco was our photographer & the photo shoot was a very fun experience. Marco was very easy to work with & we got great memories & photos to last for a lifetime!

My expectations were exceeded, so I can not think of anything to improve the experience!– Sam & Rene USA

I booked a photography session in Milan with Tigran and cannot express enough how AMAZING our time was with him! He far exceeded my expectations in what a session should be. He was excellent in helping us find beautiful places to take photos, guided us to move / pose in ways that helped us look more flattering in photos, took the time to show us where other fun activities were located around town, and provided us with STUNNING photographs. Not only is he an excellent professional photographer, but he is also such a kind person, and does so well with the technological facets of retouching the photos to make them glamorous. I can’t thank him, and you (LocalLens) enough for everything! – Anita, USA
We could not be more thrilled with the experience of Local Lens and our photos from Cabo, they are everything we hoped they would be….. and more! Our photographer was so kind and fun to work with and her talent working with couples captured our love perfectly! – Jordan, USA

We chose our photographer based on their artistic style, we liked how they found interesting angles and captured those epic wide shots. We couldn’t be more pleased with how they turned out and the process of working with your personal photographer at Local Lens is so easy, even when travelling internationally. I would totally do this again. – Angie, USA
When I told my husband that I booked a photoshoot for our anniversary trip he wasn’t entirely excited about it…he’s never one for photos. Our photographer warmed us up and even recommended some sparkling wine during the shoot, which made for great props in the photos and loosened him up, by the end of it he didn’t want to stop the shoot LOL! Thanks Local Lens and team! – Tankala, USA
The photoshoot and the photos was a wonderful experience, but what my family loved was being able to hang out with a local for a little bit. We got some great insider tips on where to go and how to communicate/get around, a really valuable experience when in a new place! – Emily, USA
This was my first shoot with Local Lens, but won’t be my last! Inquiring was really easy, and we got availability responses quick! Within a couple days we were in touch with our photographer directly, planning the details of our photoshoot locations. 1 hour was a perfect amount of shoot time – it fit great in our schedule and our gang still had energy to continue our tourist-ing after the shoot. We got our gallery in less than a week! Two big thumbs up! – Jenn, USA
My husband and kids booked a shoot to surprise me for my birthday, and OMG I could not have loved it more. What a perfect gift. We NEVER have photos, I’m going to cherish these forever 🙂 – Brooke, USA

We really think this is a genius idea and we had a fabulous experience. Our memories have been captured in a way that feels fun and authentic.

We were traveling to multiple cities and wanted shoots in them all. Despite wanting photos in 4+ cities, the process was easy the whole way through. They even offered us a little discount for booking multiple shoots, what great customer service! The photographers and admins at Local Lens were very responsive to every question I had. 5 stars! – Su, USA
Our photographer was an absolute professional and joy to work with. Our session was the highlight of our trip! She made us feel so comfortable! Our pictures are beyond beautiful and we’ve gotten so many compliments for how unique they are. Thank you for making our trip wonderful and thank you for the dinner recommendation. Cheers! – Bri, USA
We loved our photos from Athens! Vaslis was on time and professional. He captured a glow to our photos that was beautiful with the national park and monuments. Definitely go for golden hour! – Destiny, USA
I can not say enough about Local Lens and our experience in Athens. Our photographer took a natural and candid approach to our photos, which I personally love. I could look at these photos and daydream about our trip forever. Thanks Aaron and Local Lens! – Carli, Singapore
We weren’t sure where to do our photoshoot, but our photographer recommended an area that was so cute and quintessential Greece. The monuments could have been good too, but we were so happy that in the end we trusted his direction of where to go, the photos look so authentic that way. Thanks again! – Suzi, Korea
We were studying abroad and wanted some photos together as best friends. We took both solo and together photos at Montjuic, which was a blast!

There are so many beautiful spots in Barcelona, but we went with the gothic quarter – it is just so photogenic. We were so glad we did the shoot in the early morning like the photographer suggested, less people, more amazing photos! – Birdie, USA
We did an engagement shoot at the famous park in Barcelona which is so pretty – the fountains and sculptures were so unique and was a great backdrop for our photos. I’ll be using these for our save-the-dates! – Georgia, USA
We did a 1 hour photoshoot in Bologna and it was perfect! The photo spots were easily walkable from one to the next and Bologna is just sooo pretty. Every street provided opportunities for beautiful photos, we loved them! – Katy, USA
We had a great time with Cecilia, she is just so sweet and kind. She showed us some great spots and got wonderful photos at hidden little streets and recommended a cafe to go to after the shoot.
Our photoshoot in Bologna was the highlight of our time there! We did the shoot the first day of our trip and it was the BEST! After the shoot we had some inside tips and a better feel for the city! And the photos are GORGEOUS! Thanks again!
Bruges is just too beautiful to not have pictures done! We couldn’t be happier with how fun the shoot was and how the photos turned out.
We did a 1 hour shoot in Bruges and it was a perfect amount of time – the city is so walkable and every street was beautiful! Great service, amazing photos!
This was my second time to Bruges and a first for my husband, so I wanted some photos of us together here since last time I regretted not having any good photos to capture the city. This shoot was perfect for what I was looking for – and my husband actually had fun on the shoot! Thanks to the team!
I cannot say enough about Teodora in Budapest. She radiates sunshine and taking photos with her is just so easygoing and fun! I’m so glad I found her and Local Lens, will definitely be recommending!
We did a 1 hour shoot at the fishermans bastion as per recommendation by Local Lens, and it was the perfect backdrop for our Budapest honeymoon! The area is beautiful with great lookouts and photo spots, highly recommend it! Thanks LL and Teo!
Budapest has such a charm, and the photos turn out even more charming! We loved working with our photographer and she made us feel totally at home in her city. We did our shoot at the bridge and by the river/parliament and it turned out awesome!
We had such a good time shooting with Nico, he is great with couples. His photos are bright and capture the uniquness of Dubrovnik, we love em!
We had our engagement photos done here in Dubrovnik! The waterside and castle walls was a great spot to do our photos, less people, and so beautiful. I highly recommend golden hour, or early morning! It gets so sunny at hot in the middle of the day.
We did the 30 minute option for our photos in Dubrovnik, but it was too short! We were enjoying it so much we extended it to an hour, and we’re glad we did – the photos towards the end of the shoot were the best ones (I think because we were warmed up or feeling more comfortable). Great service, loved the option to extend, and loooove the gallery.
We did a 2 hour shoot in Dublin, and we got photos everywhere! All the main spots. Booking was easy, the photographer was so responsive, and our family loved the photos!
We did a quick 1 hour photoshoot among the little pub streets of Dublin and had so much fun! Those streets are just quintessential Dublin, and the character of the city is so charming. We had a beer at the end of our shoot, and that made for awesome photos too!
We are 3 friends who met in Edinburgh for a reunion and we had to get some photos! Our photographer was so sweet and took some great photos for us to remember it by, we loved it!

If you’re on the fence about doing a shoot here in Florence, do it! It was the highlight of our trip and we could not be more thankful to Dorin and the Local Lens team for making our engagement photos so amazing.
Our photos are stunning…just stunning!! Florence at golden hour is gorgeous, I would do this again in a heartbeat, the photos are so worth it.
Amazing! I was so nervous since I hadn’t been there before, and was trying to arrange the whole thing remotely from LA. Dorin was VERY thorough and communicative. This made things very easy for me, thankfully.
Our photographer was very professional and the quality of the photos is outstanding. He has everything down to a science and we felt so comfortable on the shoot, we love the candid shots!
Ghent was our favorite city in Belgium! We decided to do a shoot a little last minute and our Local Lens photographer was able to move some things around to accommodate us – we very much appreciate all the help from LL and especially Julia!
Great service, friendly photographer, awesome photos. I’ll book again!
From the minute we messaged each other, you could tell our photographer was the sweetest person in the world. She was professional but also so personable and made us feel great on our photoshoot. We had a lot of fun!
We did a 1 hour shoot in Heidelberg and it was just the right amount of time to do photos in the city and on the famous bridge. Photos from the bridge were my favorite! They were colorful and captured our love so nicely. Thanks!
I did a solo shoot in Heidelberg and got some great photos! I was happy to be able to do something for myself while traveling.
Our photographer was professional and there waiting for us at the agreed spot, everything went very smoothly and our photos were wonderful. Thanks Julia and team!
I loved how professional our photographer was – you could tell he’s an expert! We love our photos and just ordered our prints!

When I booked my flight to Istanbul I knew I just HAD to have photos from it, and I’m so glad to have stumbled upon Local Lens. The photographer helped me capture my memories in a city I’ve been wanting to go to for so long, and made me look great ha! Awesome overall.
We booked a photoshoot in Istanbul for our honeymoon, and it turned out so great! We had to reschedule the shoot because of a late flight, but the photographer was quick to respond and we were able to work it out quickly. We actually had better weather for the rescheduled time, so it all worked out 🙂 great photos, great memories captured, thanks Mo and Local Lens!
Booked an engagement photoshoot with Carlos in Lisbon, Portugal. He was great to work with, and pictures came out amazing. He scouted locations and helped to pick out the best spot for the proposal. Carlos was very helpful and accommodating, I would highly recommend. And again, the pictures were beautiful.
Our experience in Lisbon with Local Lens and Carlos was great! Wouldn’t change a thing and will use this service in the future!
Everything was so easy to plan and working with the photographer was fun! I am so happy I decided to do a shoot to capture my time in Lisbon.
We booked a shoot for an engagement session before we went out for reservations at a nice dinner, and it turned out to be perfect! Huge thank you to Biniam for being so quick to respond and great to work with. Would definitely recommend this service for capturing any occasion.
I proposed to my girlfriend in Madrid and booked a shoot to remember the moment by, it could not have gone better! The photographer was ready to go to candidly get the shot and captured every second afterwards.
I booked a photography session in Milan with photographer Tigran via LocalLens and wanted to tell you how AMAZING our time was with him! He far exceeded my expectations in what a session should be. He was excellent in helping us find beautiful places to take photos, guided us to move / pose in ways that helped us look more flattering in photos, took the time to show us where other fun activities were located around town, and provided us with STUNNING photographs. Not only is he an excellent professional photographer, but he is also such a kind person, and does so well with the technological facets of retouching the photos to make them glamorous. I can’t thank him, and you (LocalLens) enough for everything!
I run a male fashion blog and booked a photoshoot to capture some of my curated outfits in the fashion capital that is Milan. The photos turned out fantastic and had just that high end glamorous vibe I was looking for, superb work!
I decided to book a photo shoot because I wanted to capture our time in such a beautiful city. It’s not every day that we go to Paris and being a special trip, we wanted some special keepsake to take back home with us. It also enables us to share these images with our family and friends and will have them forever. Our photographer was very easy to communicate with. He was very patient with us, especially our two young boys. Arnel directed us on where we should stand and what kind of shot he was was planning to take. We would definitely recommend Arnel to anyone wanting to have a photo shoot in Paris.
Booking a shoot was incredibly easy, and the price for a shoot is great with Local Lens. I think this will be our new tradition for our trips! My fionce loved our photos in Paris, and our photographer was so nice and accommodating. Cheers Julien and Local Lens!
Despite the cloudy and rainy weather of Paris our photos turned out beautiful! We went in knowing Paris’ weather is kind of gloomy like 90% of the time, and our photos well over exceeded our expectations. Not only the photos, but the whole process was great, will be recommending you guys to my network!
We celebrated our anniversary in Paris and decided to book a photoshoot since it had been so long since we had gotten professional photos – maybe since our wedding lol! The shoot planning was excellent and Julien is a dream to work with. A photoshoot on vacation – what a wonderful concept!
Our photographer, Raifa was a great photographer and mini tour guide for our 90 package. It was our first time in the city and had no idea where to take pictures; she met us and took us to places that were unique and historic to the town. Our only request was to have a few photos with a crosswalk. She was able to get great pictures of us in multiple poses and beautiful crosswalks. She made us comfortable and we were able to be our ‘normal/goofy’ selves which was captured in all the photos. The photos came back right in time and came out GREAT! I had a few friends tell us that she made us look like models!
We had a blast taking photos with Eugene, our photographer in Prague. He was exceptional at service and directing our photoshoot. Our engagement photos are just to die for!
I have to say how great this experience was. Prague is so beautiful that looking back at my photos I cannot imagine not doing a shoot! I highly recommend doing a photoshoot on Charles bridge and the central square – it is just an amazing city and the photos feel authentic (not touristy). Thanks again Raifa and Local Lens!
I booked a photoshoot on my solo journey through Europe, and my Prague photos from my photoshoot are amazing! I look and felt like a model! I love these photos so much and the photographer was so sweet and had great ideas for the shoot – I had so much fun!
Booking Local Lens for photos of our honeymoon in Rome was the best decision we made for our Italy trip. Our photographer was INCREDIBLE! He even offered to help us around and make arrangements for things to do in Rome. Awesome way to get a local feel for a city. Will definitely make sure we book for our next trips!
These are my favorite photos EVER! We have Rome all to ourselves in these photos (thanks to the suggestion of waking up early for a shoot!) and they are stunning! We had so many to choose from and they were all excellent, our photographer was so easy to work with and friendly, not to mention extremely talented!
Our family had a wonderful time taking photos with Dmitry, even the kids! They loved running around and taking photos together, truly some great sibling moments captured 🙂 My husband and I loved the photos and will cherish these memories!
Our photographer in Rome was AMAZING! The photos were such a great quality, and overall this service was an excellent value considering the time the photographer spent with us, the recommendations he made, and the sheer amount of photos that were delivered. I will definitely be recommending you to my friends! Thanks again Dmitry!
Deciding to do a photoshoot in Rome was the best decision we made on our vacation! Booking was so easy and the photographer responded FAST. In like 10 minutes we were connected and planning what spots we wanted to do photos at, just overall great service. Awesome work!
Our photographers were Alessa in Mykonos and Christos in Santorini. Both photographers were easy to communicate with and we had enough time to discuss location and timing. I did not worry at all despite our busy schedule during the trip. Both were also very talented and friendly, and we could not have asked for better photographers or locations! Alessa and Christos, thank you for the amazingly beautiful photos!
We did our honeymoon in Greece and photos in Santorini was a MUST. We had a great time on our shoot and our photographer in Santorini knew some great hidden spots (the few that are left in Santorini!) Thanks Hristos and Local Lens!
So easy to book, great communication, loved the experience! Overall two thumbs up, my girlfriend loves our photos!
We had a fun time on our photoshoot in St. Petersburg. I would highly recommend doing the shoot early in the morning or early evening like the company suggests…we did ours a little too early and the photos turned out pretty bright and high contrast, they still turned out nice, but I definitely plan your schedule so that you can get photos at those ideal times!
Our photographer in St. Petersburg was so sweet and accommodating. We had to change locations to meet on a whim and she was very responsive to our requests. Great experience!
Somehow, by some magic, our photographer in Venice knew how to avoid some crowds for our photoshoot. Our photos are straight out of a postcard they are so beautiful! Working with Local Lens and Ksenia was so nice and easy.
Looking at our photos from Venice, it’s like a dream! The photos are so vibrant and perfect that I can just stare and daydream about our trip 🙂
We did our photoshoot the first day we were in Venice, and it was the best decision! Our photographer in Venice had some great tips and tricks to getting around, and helped us with our gondola ride. I’d do this again in a heartbeat!
Venice is somewhere that is begging for photos, every little street is so pretty! We really enjoyed our photoshoot, it was easygoing and casual. Thanks!
I had a wonderful experience with our photographer Elizabeth, she is the best out there!! The whole process went smoothly, from the moment I contacted her, her response was quick and efficient. The logistics of meeting her went smoothly. She was very flexible and understanding. We are a family of five, mom, dad and three teenagers who are not patient , and she was very patient and kind. She took us to all the cool places !! We love our pictures, they were delivered on time.We will always treasure those memories. Ely did a great job, thanks Ely!!!
We travel to Cabo every year. This time we brought the whole family and wanted to commemorate our vacation. Ely from Local lens was fantastic! She brought life and laughter to our family portraits and in just 30 minutes created so many great shots. I could not be happier with the quality of her work. Truly a great experience and will use this service in the future.
I can’t praise Local Lens and our Cabo photographer enough! We LOVE our photos, and the photographer was amazing to work with.
David was AMAZING from start to finish!! He arrived as scheduled and without delay he went to work organizing and setting the tone for what turned out to be a phenomenal photo-shoot with 12 ladies!! David captured so many shots of us. He made us feel very comfortable and our photos showed it!!
Marco was excellent with the entire family. We had some family pictures done and he did a great job working with everyone’s different personalities as well as the two grand babies! He also was just getting over the flu and came anyway. Marco and Local Lens were easy to work with. We didn’t get our sunset pictures because it was the only evening the entire stay that was cloudy but the pictures turned out beautiful. Also very affordable…not like some places that just try to take as much money as possible. I’ll definitely come back and use Local Lens in the future!!!
It was easy to plan our shoot with Local Lens and had fun with Marco on the photoshoot, even the getting in the water part! We found a nice stretch of beach without too many people, so it worked out really nicely.
We went to Cancun to celebrate our anniversary, and originally requested photos at our hotel. Little known to us, hotels require expensive permits for photos on hotel grounds, so our photographer in cancun recommended we go to a nearby beach that had better access. The photos turned out just as good, if not better!
We are so happy we found Local Lens in Oahu! Our family had a great time on our photoshoot and you can see it in the photos! All smiles and laughter 🙂 Some wonderful memories captured with this photoshoot, thanks Local Lens and Keoni!
I booked a shoot for our engagement photos in Oahu, and it was just perfect. The location the photographer recommended was perfect, as I wanted that beautiful beach hawaii ‘look’. It is so worth it to have a local help you out to pick locations and times to shoot, we really enjoyed the process of booking, shooting, and picking our photos.
We had a 1 hour photoshoot in Honolulu, and we would do it again in a heartbeat! Jolene was awesome to work with, she listened to all our requests and captured our engagement photos in Hawaii so beautifully, can’t wait to use them for our save the date cards!
Local Lens’ service in Las Vegas was OUTSTANDING! We worked with Mike who is a phenomenal photographer – he captured amazing images for us on the Vegas strip, everything was perfect.
We actually eloped in Las Vegas and the Local Lens team and their photographers were able to come up with a custom quote to capture our Vegas wedding – which was great! It was all we needed, since we eloped, we figured photos were the only thing worth spending on, and we were right!
Our group had a really fun time taking photos on our shoot for my bachelorette! Our photographer in Las Vegas knew exactly how to place us large group so that we got the best shots – we love the photos, they made everyone look GREAT!
We are loving our photos from Las Vegas! The color and lights of the photos are beautiful – we did the shoot right before sunset, when all the lights come up but it is still daylight, and the effect is awesome! I can’t wait to show everyone our photos!
We love traveling through Mexico, and had our engagement photos done in Mexico City. The photoshoot was easy to setup with our photographer, and I am very happy with our photos!
I booked a photoshoot for a solo session and we took the photos at Chapultepec, which was a beautiful spot! I’m excited to have actually good photos of myself!
My photoshoot in Mexico City was a good experience, I enjoyed meeting up with a Local who could tell me some fun things about the city as we took photos. We took photos downtown, which is a great location because you capture the essence and history of the city. Thanks Local Lens and Daniel!
We had an engagement photoshoot in New Orleans, and we had a lot of fun! Booking was super easy and we appreciated the selection of photos in our gallery.
We scheduled a photoshoot for after our courthouse wedding, and it was a great decision! I love that we have these photos of the day to keep forever, our photographer was spectacular as well. Cheers to Local Lens and team for helping us capture it!
We took a weekend getaway to New York and since we never have any photos together, I decided to do a casual photoshoot, why not! It was so fun! I love our photos of us just exploring the city!
We had a fun casual shoot for our engagement photos on the Brooklyn side of new york! I loved the photographer and how she captured our easy-going and fun nature as a couple, great work Local Lens and Lauren!
We absolutely loved the beautiful photos from our photoshoot in Puerto Vallarta. We shared them on social media and got a really positive response on how great they were. Hopefully it will lead to more customers! Thanks Local Lens and Jhovany!
The sunsets on the west coast of Mexico are remarkable, and our photographer in Puerto Vallarta totally captured it! Our photos are spectacular, Jhovany is so talented with couples, it looks right out of a magazine!
We did a family photoshoot on the beach in Nayarit Vallarta, and the whole experience was excellent. Even though we just did a casual photoshoot the photos themselves are out of a dream! Doing a shoot was a great way to capture our vacation in Puerto Vallarta.
Even though our photos were just taken at our hotel, they turned out gorgeous! The photographers are so talented with creating such amazing images! We will be using these photos for our wedding invites!
We decided to book a shoot to capture our reunion and friend-iversary in San Francisco. We eventually picked to do the shoot at the park with the overview of the bridge, and Alex was so fun to work with. She captured our fun and silly side as friends! We were just laughing the whole time!
I worked with Alex from Local Lens on my maternity photoshoot – and she was just incredible. I look at these photos and even though I’m really pregnant I feel so beautiful! Thanks Alex for capturing this for me and giving me my confidence back even though my circumference is growing and growing haha! It’s beautiful growth though 😉
We booked Local Lens to capture our vacation as a family in San Miguel. My mother recently retired to San Miguel and it was a great chance to have a photoshoot with all the kids and grandparents together, I know our family will cherish these photos forever. They capture the emotion of our reunion and the all around good times we had together, can’t wait to frame a few!
We took a day trip to San Miguel from Mexico City, and booked a shoot with Haley and Eric, who actually started Local Lens, so that was a cool experience! And we had two photographers! It’s needless to say the photos were great and they had so much knowledge on the city so that was a nice bonus. Keep up the great work you guys!
Our family rented a large house that was beautiful so we decided to do our shoot there as it was hard to get the entire family out and about on time lol! So it worked out perfectly, we got photos of everyone and then individually of the couples and the kids too, a 2 hour shoot was perfect to get all 15 of us! Thanks Dinorah!
We had a lot of fun exploring our Buenos Aires photographer! We did the colorful streets of La Boca and it was great, the photos turned out really nice.
I was working abroad in Cartagena and since my term was almost over I wanted to get some great pictures of me in the city. I love the street art of Cartagena and got some really cool shots from my photoshoot! We had a great time and I am glad I did it.
My mother and I went to Cusco on the way to Machu Picchu and wanted to get some nice photo. We walked through the center of the city and a few other streets, it was a good time and the photographer was friendly. Thank you for a fun experience!
We travelled as a family from Bolivia to Cusco to see a festival and enjoy the magical city. There is so much history and we wanted to capture these family memories together. We love the photos!
We did a tour through Peru and started our trip in Lima, and thought it was a good opportunity to get some photos taken since we had some free time in our itinerary to explore. It was really nice getting to know a local and the photos came out super nice! We love them because they are the only great photos from our whole trip!
My husband is from Peru, but we were married in a US courthouse, so we thought it would be fun to take my dress on a shoot and take some photos in Lima, his home town. We were so happy to find Local Lens because it was simple and easy to get in touch with the photographer and plan everything from the US. Plus, the photographer was very professional.
I love my photos! They capture the beach and sugarloaf wonderfully, and working with Ana was a blast! We had a lot of fun and I hope to see her next time I find myself in Rio 🙂 Cheers!
Thanks so much to Local Lens and Pooja for helping us organize our photoshoot at Disneyland Tokyo! We love our photos!
It was a dream of mine to see Tokyo, so it was a perfect honeymoon destination for us. I cannot be happier I found Local Lens and Pooja to help us arrange our photoshoot in such a beautiful place! We got photos of both the gardens and the city madness, it was perfect! Thanks for the great service!
Our family photos in the cherry blossoms are wonderful! Exactly what I was envisioning, and the booking process and the photoshoot was seamless, and the photographer was very professional. Excellent company.
Local Lens and Mohamed helped have an incredible shoot with riding a horse in the desert! It was amazing! I am so happy we were able to pull the project together and get these epic shots, thanks for your hard work to the photographer and team!
We loved our photographer in Cairo with Local Lens, he was the sweetest and captured great memories for us. We walked to some really pretty streets and locations, Cairo is another world! Thanks again!
Wow! What a cool concept and wonderful experience! After inquiring about our dates, communicating directly with the photographer to plan was so convenient (I had to have outfit changes lol), and everything went perfectly. We loved our photographer in Marrakesh, she was so amazing to work with. Not to mention our gallery is BEAUTIFUL! Thanks guys! Till next time!
Thanks so much for capturing our family memories in Marrakesh, we enjoyed the whole experience and the photographer was great with our kids, they even had a blast haha! Thanks Amine!
We have always wanted to capture ourselves memorably during every special vacation we have undertaken together. We both love photography. Everything was pleasant, casual and non fussy. Leyre was very sure of her shots and of the locations where she envisioned her frame. Keep up the good work!
It’s a family tradition for the past 3 years for our family to book a vacation photoshoot when we travel on our family holiday. Our shoot was a wonderful And personal experience with our photographer, Endre Brita. We communicated regularly prior to the photoshoot to determine the type of photoshoot and where we would like to have our photoshoot done. Lovely, warm and fun photoshoot session as we quickly became friends throughout the session. The whole booking and communication process was fast and efficient.
We did Casual Couple’s Shoot in Cabo and took engagement photos. It was amazing!! Elizabeth coached us through everything and we felt comfortable! Nothing could have been better.
We did a just because photoshoot in Rome with Alina. She was friendly and open to all ideas, she’ s the best!
We were celebrating my parent’s 45th anniversary and our experience was wonderful! Daythan was friendly, patient and very helpful! He worked hard to make everything perfect with many different personalities! Highly recommended!
I picked Singapore because my girlfriend and I were going on a Asia trip. Singapore, Vietnam and thailand. Looking at all destinations I really like how Singapore looked. Then I chose Gan as my photographer because I really like his work and thought he kept it simple and smooth. My girlfriend and I met through a dating app called coffee meets bagel and we have been together for 2+ years. Both of our visions align and goals so it was time to propose. Gan was my photographer and he helped me figure out the best locations to take photos. This was the first time in Singapore and didn’t have a clue on locations for the proposal and casual photos. He gave options for us to select on locations and also gave us more direction as my girfiend and I are not photogenic. Overall my now Fiancé and I were extremely happy with our experience with Digan.
Everything went smoothly and couldn’t have asked for more. My photographer Gan was great!
I was very unhappy with my wedding pictures and wanted a beautiful formal picture that I could be as happy with as I am my husband! Our Rome shoot was THE BEST experience. I can not stress enough how AMAZING Dmitri was!! He listened to what I wanted, what I was looking for and made sure that I had the pictures I was looking for. He was engaged in the processes and made it fun and comfortable. We love our pictures!!! Don’t hesitate, BOOK WITH LOCAL LENS!
We love Paris and it is a special place for us so I decided to pop the question!
Great experience overall, photographer was flexible on timing, very good at communicating, and the photos turned out great.
We did a Casual Couple’s Shoot in Barcelona, since we hadn’t had professional photos taken in a long time and though this would be a perfect opportunity. Svetlana did a wonderful job – even though we can be awkward in front of the camera, she gently directed us to make some beautiful photos. She was so nice and helped us relax. We love the photos and can’t wait to put some up in our house – a perfect memento of our time in and the beauty of Barcelona!
We were in Barcelona for our 5th Wedding Anniversary and my sister planned our photoshoot with Julia. We wanted to have the moments and emotions captured for life. It was our first time and indeed a wonderful experience , Julia made us comfortable and knew every details of the location. Guided us where we could capture the best photos. Choosing Gothic Quarter was a wise decision , she helped us with location too. Also she went above and beyond suggesting what colors would enhance the pictures, timings of the shoot, clicked mix of candid and posed shots. I would do this again with Julia. I am glad we teamed with her.
The proposal went perfectly (I know this because she cried)!
We actually always planned to visit Greece since it is my nationality. Once I found out we finally had the opportunity to go, I couldn’t imagine of a better location to proclaim my love for this woman. I wanted to get good photos of the engagement, since we didn’t have any family or friends there to capture the moment. The experience was great, Dionysis was very professional but also made it a fun experience which helped us to relax which led to more natural photos as the shoot progressed
We did a Casual Couple’s Shoot in Prague.My husband and I have been together 9 years, and we’ve taken many trips together. We always end up with the same type of photos: selfies or amateur shots taken in front of whatever iconic building we might be visiting. While those types of photos are still good for preserving memories, I wanted high quality images we could frame in our home and look back on for years to come. Raifa was the sweetest and most thoughtful photographer I have ever worked with. We did an early morning shoot in Prague, and sensing that we were a little stiff, she helped encourage us to pose and interact with each other in a number of different ways to get the shots we would love. I absolutely love her style, and the photos turned out even better than I imagined. I am so thankful to her for capturing our personalities and the beauty of Prague in our vacation shoot. Thanks, Local Lens! Everything was wonderful!
We really wanted something special to mark our trip to Rome. Our experience AMAZING. After searching multiple websites I came across Local Lens and looked through the portfolios. Dmitry was FANTASTIC. I CANNOT encourage anyone enough to choose him. He was professional and engaging and made the process easy and fun.Not one thing could have been better!!!!
Last year my fiance and I decided that we were going to plan our first trip outside of the U.S. for our ten year anniversary. He had always wanted to go to Ibiza so we chose that as our destination. I was blissfully unaware of the plan to propose and truly thought we were just going on a romantic vacation. A few days into the trip, my fiance informed me that we would be going on a tour of Ibiza with a man who was a tour guide but doubled as a photographer. He casually said that he thought it would be “cool” to get some professional photos together since we were in Ibiza. It was all thanks to our wonderful photographer Tamas who actually picked the final location where the proposal happened. After about 3 stops of taking photos along the way to Es Vedra, we got to the top of the hill, soaked in the view and my fiance popped the question. My fiance decided to book the vacation photoshoot because he wanted to do a surprise proposal in Ibiza while we were on vacation from the United States.
Our experience during the photoshoot was phenomenal. We were absolutely blown away by Tamas. His taste and vision is beautiful. Tamas was aware of the surprise plan for my fiance to pop the question and led him every step of the way. Tamas picked us up from our hotel, took us to several gorgeous locations to take photos as a “distraction” and then chose the most beautiful location on the island, Es Vedra, where my fiance finally got down on one knee. Tamas was so kind and fun, we just loved being around him. We love every single one of our photos, they are all stunning. We both wish it was possible for Tamas to be the photographer at our wedding in the states. He definitely made all of our proposal dreams come true and we couldn’t have asked for a better photographer on this special day. We highly recommend him!!
We did a Casual Couple’s Shoot in Tokyo because my fiancé and I wanted to take engagement photos on our trip to Tokyo. Our experience with Pooja was AMAZING! She was so friendly and made us feel very comfortable. Her knowledge of Tokyo was wonderful and she knew where to get the best, most creative shots. She was willing to spend extra time with us outside of the time window we booked in order to travel to different sites around Tokyo for our photos. I would recommend her to anyone!! Nothing could be better – it was 100% positive!
My proposal shoot in Positano was perfect! Mimmo our photographer was great!!
Fantastic. Mimmo was great!! From the moment we came in contact to the final picture, Mimmo was very professional and helpful. The photos look great and we are very happy with how it went. Nothing could have gone better – It was perfect
We love to capture memories at the different places we’ve visited so when we’re old we can look back and smile 🙂 We had such a great experience. Svetlana was amazing – we experienced some poor weather during our visit and she worked with us to reschedule to a time when we could get the best photos. We are so happy with our photos!! She is amazing and would highly recommend her to anyone visiting Barcelona!
We were on vacation for our daughter’s 1st birthday in Nassau. Our experience was wonderful. Daythan was the absolute best. He was so great with our daughter! Would book him again in a heartbeat. Great photos and great experience.
Awesome experience! Ewa was beyond accommodating to my vision. She was so willing to take the time needed to get that perfect shot for my family, and my vision was a tall order, too. We had to wait in line for our turn to cross Abbey Road, while also choosing the right timing with the continuous flow of traffic, and this took several tries crossing the road to feel confident that we had enough to work with. When we got our shots back (and they actually came back before we had enough left London to return home, which was a pleasant surprise), I was beyond impressed to find that not only do we have SEVERAL great shots to choose from, but somehow, Ewa was able to crop out the crowd of people waiting their turn on either side of the crosswalk! Overall, I have built this picture up in my mind for nearly two decades now, and I could not be more happy than I am, with how they turned out!! THANK YOU EWA AND LOCAL LENS!!
