Returning from vacation with 1,000s of digital photos is the new normal. But too often, I end up with a bunch of awkward selfies of my partner and me unless we bother a local or fellow tourist to snap a couple quick pics. Of course, they often turn out not much better than our own selfies. But it's the thought that counts, right?
Well, we've used Flytograhpher on a few different occasions to capture fun, sometimes candid photos of friends and family (that's us above in New Orleans' French Quarter with a group of our guys). The service matches you with a professional photographer who will meet you for a shoot at one or more sites in your destination, ensuring that you get final pictures that truly represent the destination while capturing the personalities of everyone in the photo. Several packages are available with options for number of locations and the number of edited photos a couple weeks after the photo shoot.
After all, when's the last time you said Cheese! and didn't end up with something cheesy?
