Top 5 Reasons to Hire a Vacation Photographer
Local Tips: Best Photo Spots & Hidden Gems
When you hire a vacation photographer through Local Lens, not only are you getting a professional camera whiz but you’re also gaining a set of local eyes. Our photographers are based all over the world– they’re locals and they know the best spots to capture those priceless moments.
While it’s fun to take typical touristy photos, the real gems are taken at all the local little nooks and crannies! Plus, if you’re traveling in a foreign country where you don’t know the local language, your photographer can serve as a translator too. Simply ask the photographer for suggestions depending on what you are looking for: off the beaten path photo spots, iconic views, or a combination of both! They’ll also tell you the time for the best lighting and how to beat the crowds to get those magical photos without tons of other tourists in the background.
Capture Your Travel Story
Booking a vacation is always an exciting thing– whether you plan on traveling solo, with friends, with family, or with complete strangers on a group tour! No matter who you’re with or where you’re going, hiring a professional photographer is an excellent way to capture the fun memories you’ll want to hold onto forever.
But, isn’t that what selfie sticks, self-timers, and friends are for?
Sure, photography has evolved over the years and made it easier for folks to capture memories on-the-go, at any moment. However, when you hire a photographer for your vacation photos you’ll know you’re getting quality pictures to last a lifetime.
Professionally Captured & Beautifully Edited
Hiring a photographer to take vacation photos is an expense that will forever be worth the cost. There are only so many Instagram filters you can use to make your photos appear interesting; photographers, on the other hand, need no filter! Local Lens photographers are skilled in capturing raw, genuine, candid moments, and then editing them to perfection – no filters necessary!
And while you may be struggling to fit a selfie stick into your carry-on, local photographers can bring all the gear that most travelers wouldn’t dream of bringing on their own– from light modifiers and external flashes to various lenses and props!
It’s More Affordable Than You Think
Hiring your own private photographer isn’t as expensive as you may think. Packages range from 30 minute ‘mini-sessions’ to 2 hour photoshoots that include multiple locations all around town. Prices also vary by city, ensuring you the best rates possible. See pricing for your destination here.
Your New Favorite Souvenir
When planning and booking a vacation, the cost of a vacation photoshoot could end up being one of the most valuable and least expensive things done on a trip. After the tours have been taken, the food has been enjoyed, you check out of your hotel, and the return flight has landed, the memories you made will be all that remains. It is our mission to ensure that your cherished vacation moments are remembered beautifully.
Once you are back home, you won’t be wearing souvenir t-shirts or showing off magnets & keychains. Instead, you’ll be showing off a gorgeous set of photos to friends and family which will surely be accompanied by stories of your adventure. The warm feeling of reminiscing makes one realize that these captured memories add richness to our lives which is priceless.
