Travelers Hire Vacation Photographers

The Vacation Photographer — A Travel Tech Must?

You already know you can't leave for a trip without a few of the tech basics, like phone chargers, portable speakers, an ereader, and a personal vacation photographer. Wait . . . what?

The Wall Street Journal reports a new trend in available services at luxury resorts around the world: a photography session to capture you and your travel companion's relaxed smiles and carefree frolics without worrying about unflattering self-portrait angles or leaving someone out of the memory.

Ranging in price from $100 an hour to $3,200 for a half-day shoot, many families are opting for these packages as an alternative to the standard in-studio family portrait. Still, others are candid, explaining that their reason for hiring a photographer was to capture the Facebook and social media-friendly action sports shots and perfectly posed group scenes that are so often missed with a phone or point-and-shoot camera.

Is a vacation photography session your getaway dream come true or an unnecessary extravagance?

OK, this seems silly, but my best friend recently hired a photographer in the dominican republic for a few hours to take some portraits of her and her girlfriend on the beach, and they were pretty freakin' awesome. I was kind of jealous.
