A couple months ago I came across this brilliant company, Flytographer, on a blog I follow and 2 minutes later, I was sold. From the perspective of someone who travels quite frequently, someone who loves photography and someone who loves capturing special moments, this experience was for me! Plus, when a company gets press from Conde Nast Traveler, The Huffington Post, NBC (to name a few), you know it’s going to be good.
What is Flytographer? Here is a short snippet from their website that I think brings to life the objectives of their company very well:
Flytographer captures travellers around the globe every day… honeymoons, family vacations, girlfriend getaways, proposals, anniversaries, reunions & more! Capture memories in over 100 cities worldwide with our hand-picked list of professional photographers. It’s like strolling the streets with a local friend who shares insider tips, all the while discretely chronicling unforgettable vacation memories.
How Does it Work? Very simply! Choose a city. Book your shoot. Meet a friendly, local photographer. Return with treasured memories.
I booked Flytographer for our babymoon in Vancouver (I wanted to capture some moments of Rick and I before the baby comes and also, get a few bump shots) and the experience was SOOOO worth it. First off, their concierge, Jen, helps with all the setup details and she’s so helpful and very responsive. Are there photographers in Vancouver? Where will the photo shoot take place? How long will it be? What is the price? Do I have a choice in the photographer I use? And so on. She answers all of your questions and gets you set up for the experience. Amaze.
Rick and I arrive at Stanley Park, instantly connected with our photographer, Sarah, and about an hour and a half later, we were done. Admittedly, it was awkward in the beginning. Exploring Stanley Park with a photographer following you can be, um, uncomfortable. But literally 5-10 minutes into the session, Sarah had warmed us up and we laughed and talked and basically saw some beautiful sights around the park all while she captured the moments. It was so much fun! Here are a few of my favorite shots.
