Best Vacation Photography for Summer Travel

This post contains affiliate links

Travel has always been huge in my family. We’re always planning for the next best place to visit, but we had never considered hiring a photographer!

We want to remember our adventure forever! So, we spend a crazy amount of time taking pictures! This can get tedious and sometimes take away from our experience.

We love having photoshoots, but when we travel, it can be difficult to ensure the quality of your photos. We did some major research and stumbled across Localgrapher, and our travel photos will never be the same!   

What is Localgrapher?

Localgrapher was established by a seasoned photographer in 2015 who saw that meeting a local photographer could enhance your travel experience. Localgrapher provides photographers and videographers in over 800 locations across the globe!

It’s actually the largest vacation photography company in the world.

How it Works

Their booking process is so easy! All you have to do is head over to the website and enter in your information and destination. Then, you choose your photographer! Localgrapher will organize everything for you and set up your appointment!

Once you have your photoshoot, you get your pictures back in four days! That’s crazy fast compared to other photography services we have used in the past. They send you a link to your own gallery with all of your high-resolution photos.

Localgrapher has thought of everything. One of the first things I worried about was the unpredictable weather, but they will happily reschedule your shoot if needed!

Plus, if you don’t find your destination on the list, they work tirelessly to provide an awesome photographer wherever you’re vacationing!

Localgrapher offers four different packages to accommodate your needs. The options start out at $250 with the Bronze Package. This package is complete with a 30 minutes photoshoot and 20 edited, high-resolution pictures.

The next package is the Silver Package at $350. It allows an hour of shooting time and comes with 35 edited, high-resolution pictures!

Next is the Gold Package at $500. It allows for up to 100 minutes of shooting and 60 edited, high-resolution photos! Keep in mind that all of the photo packages guarantee your photos in only 4 business days!

The final package is the video package at $450. It comes with an hour of shooting and a 60-second edited video. Since the videos take extra time, they come back in two weeks!

If you’re not happy with your photos, they offer a 100% money-back guarantee!

    I love this. Pictures are so important to look back on and remember all the adventures I’ve had with my family. I’ve never hired a local photographer but we are considering it for our next trip. Thanks for sharing these details

    This is such a cool idea! My family has gotten family photos taken at the beach before, but you never know the quality of the photographer you find. This seems like a good solution to ensure good quality!

    This is such a great idea and resource to have. Pictures are very important to me and its such a beautiful memory to have. Plus if you’re traveling with your family or a larger group this ensures that everyone is in all the photos.

    Amazing. There is not just an app for everything, but an occupation/company for everything. In all seriousness, I think this is a great idea. I can think of family reunions, honeymoons, etc.

    I can totally see the appeal (although I don’t think I could hire one, as my husband haaaates photos and I like spending our holidays together!) I think this would be great to hire as a family, so everyone can be in a few photos together,

      Yes! It really takes the pressure off on you knowing that someone is getting great photos!

    A great idea for special trips. I would certainly consider this, so as not to have to worry about taking photos.
