{Tips} Flytographer Review, a fun new way of capturing our travels!

Just shy of 4 months old, we took Owen on his first international trip… to Seoul! Prior to this, he has only been on one other trip — a road trip to Portland.

My (Shirlene’s) family also flew in to Seoul from Malaysia. Since it was my birthday and the entire family was in Seoul together, we wanted a special souvenir to capture the memories. At the time we were planning this trip, we also learnt about Flytographer through our network of travel bloggers.

You sign up and tell them where you’re vacationing and they’ll hook you up with local professional photographers at your destination who will then come join you on your agreed upon time/day and take photos for you. They operate in over 130 destinations across six continents.

Flytographer connected us to a local South Korea photographer, Allen who joined us on our visit to the Korean Folk Village for Shirlene’s birthday! (Photo credit: Allen of Flytographer)

So, we had Flytographer connect us with a photographer in Seoul for a 1 hour visit to Korean Folk Village on February 13th, 2015. Jeremy was ecstatic he wouldn’t have to be the one behind the camera all the time! I was excited to have the chance to capture photos of my entire family together, on vacation!


The Flytographer Experience

The entire experience was delightful. From the start, we were in touch with our Shoot Concierge, Jen, who handled the communication between us and Allen, our Flytographer. She also sent us a Shoot Scoop (summary email) once details (location, time etc…) have been agreed upon. We quickly got connected with Allen via Whatsapp and had no trouble getting in touch with him when we were in Seoul.

Allen, our Flytographer in Seoul

Allen was super easygoing and made us all feel at ease and comfortable fairly quickly. In just a few days, right before we headed back to Kuala Lumpur after a week-long vacation in Seoul, we received an email from Allen that the photos were all ready! We couldn’t be happier!

We loved all the photos that were taken! Following are just a few of our favorite.

    We needed this in Taiwan. 🙂 What a shame we missed this.

  3. Nice photographs! I always find that I never have enough pictures of myself when traveling as a solo traveler. I definitely need to change that soon and hire someone during one of my trips!
