Over the past year, I have started hiring photographers in the cities I visit. The search can get timely (the rabbit hole of hashtag searching is REAL) and I’m so happy that I have found a solution to quality photography with competitive pricing and a quick turnaround: Shoot My Travel.
About Shoot My Travel
Shoot My Travel is a female-founded company (woot-woot!) that connects travelers with professional photographers in over 230 destinations worldwide. Whether you’re going on a day trip or planning a week long vacation, you now have the flexibility to have those special moments captured!
When I decided I wanted a shoot on my visit to Boston, I viewed a handful of approved photographers on the Shoot My Travel website and I was able to go through samples of their work to see who’s style really spoke to me. I decided to shoot with Kelsey and I’m so glad I did! We had a blast!
Why Hire a Photographer?
When you’re on vacation, do you feel the special travel magic that surrounds you? I know I do! All of a sudden your senses become a bit more acute and you’re able to appreciate being in a different place, immersing yourself in the local life. Capture that magic. Social media feeds come and go, but you’ll always have the photos – and great ones at that! You do not have to be a blogger to hire a photographer on your travels. Let a professional capture some great moments of you, or you and your love, or your family.
Where we shot in Boston
After a little back-and-forth with my photographer, we netted out at shooting on Commonwealth Ave. and its mall. I had taken a stroll there with CJ a couple of days earlier and was captivated by the trees, the architecture and the people watching. What can I say? I love East Coast living and I love visiting Boston. I wish I could live there. Every time I get the chance to visit with CJ, within about an hour, I say, “You still don’t want to move back home, huh?” or “Why don’t we move to Boston?” with puppy eyes. We’ll see about that… 🙂 Anyway, back to the shoot!
Being typical New England weather, the temperatures dipped and the rain came our way. While it didn’t rain during our shoot, the moisture in the air sure waved up my straight hair, but honestly, I love the richness of the images and that Kelsey captured my excitement, no matter the frizz.
Would I use Shoot My Travel Again? Heck Yes!
It was so convenient! Within 24 hours, I viewed my images and was able to select my 15 favorite ones through their website. I received a link to download them the next day!
Here are a few for you to enjoy.
Let me know if you use the service on an upcoming trip!
