7 Reasons Why You Should Hire A Photographer On Your Next Trip With Localgrapher

Hello from Herceg Novi, in Montenegro! We have finally moved into our apartment and as we start to make this drastic change on our lifestyle from living in a sailboat with our 2 cats to moving back to land, we can’t be any more excited to share with you our new journey!

A few days ago, we have just moved into our new apartment with a beautiful view of the Bay of Kotor. The cat tree was already installed, our things are already in place, and our babies are enjoying their new home. Now that the mess of moving to a new place is over, it’s time we document everything to share with you and there’s no better way to do it than by hiring a talented local photographer from Localgrapher to take beautiful photos of this new journey 🙂


Localgrapher was founded by a photographer who started this business of having travelers getting they desired vacation photographs in mind. He thought that having a local photographer will not only improve their photos but the quality of the vacation as a whole as you’ll have some company who can recommend where all the best local finds are! The founder is now known as CEO Matej.

They provide a simple online booking of professional vacation photographers and videographers in 600+ destinations around the globe. This makes them the largest vacation photography company in the world. Whether you’re just on a quick weekend away or a special day like a proposal or wedding, a photographer from Localgrapher will make sure to capture every special moment for you!


1. They’re heaven-sent for solo travelers!

I know how hard it is to take photos when you’re traveling alone. I can totally relate because I travel alone for 3 months every year! Haha. Save yourself from the pain of trying to get a nice shot with your selfie stick or the shame of asking a stranger to ask your photos by hiring a local photographer. I honestly don’t know how I was able to get all these photos without Localgrapher and I can only imagine how beautiful it could be! I’m surely booking them the next time I travel alone (which is very soon!) 🙂

2. They can capture spontaneous moments with your family and friends

A family trip is memorable (not to mention it is a trip that is extremely hard to organize) and I’m sure nobody would want to be the one taking photos and being left out in each frame. Can I suggest something here? Rather than taking turns in taking photos and risk not having a “complete family photo” for this trip, just trust a Localgrapher and let him/her take all those special moments for all of you.

3. They can shoot any kind of special event too!

Whether it’s a proposal, a wedding, a honeymoon, an anniversary, a bachelorette party, a birthday party, or even for a maternity or newborn shoot, they’re ready to be at your service. Now, You don’t need to pay for your own team of photographer’s flight tickets, hotels, and food! Not only will you spend less, but you’ll also worry less too! 🙂

4. You’ll have less screen time and you can just enjoy just being in the moment

How much time do you actually spend time on your phone when you’re traveling? Let’s say the time you spend taking hundreds of photos, choosing which one is the best, deleting them to free up your phone memory, editing them, thinking of a caption, and uploading it on Social Media? I bet it’s a lot of time and I’m guilty of this too! I don’t even get the chance to look at my food sometimes other than the time I take photos of them 🙁 This bad habit has to go!! Let’s live in the moment and have someone do all these for us– professionally! 🙂

5. I think this is the best souvenir you could get yourself

Ref magnets, bags, t-shirt, porcelain mug– all of these will eventually be left in the closet or in the trash. I think photos are the best souvenir you could bring home and it’s a something you’d be excited to share with your friends and it’s something you’d love to keep forever 🙂

6. This could be used as a gift too!

I know looking for a gift is hard especially when someone you’re giving it to already seem to have everything in this world. The good news is, for whatever occasion it may be, you can gift a Localgrapher to someone special for as low as $100! What’s best is he can use it anytime he wants at any destination he could choose– no expiry date!

7. They have a money-back guarantee

Localgrapher believes in their service and quality of their photos that if in any case, you don’t like your online gallery, they’ll offer a 100% money back satisfaction guarantee for your photo shoot. You can contact them within 7 days and claim your money back.


Having a photographer has never been this easy. Forget about asking for leads, recommendations, and talking to each one of them. Localgrapher made it very easy!

STEP 1: Select your destination, photographer or videographer & fill out a short booking form.

STEP 2: The team will then arrange all the details and connect you with the best Localgrapher! You can even see their portfolio right on the website.

STEP 3: Enjoy your awesome photo or video shoot on the date you chose.

STEP 4: Receive your edited and HD photos in 4 business days or video in 2 weeks and share your perfectly captured memories with your family and friends!

It’s very easy, right?? We’ve done it and it’s totally worth it! Jon is very awkward in front of a camera but our Localgrapher made him very comfortable! He also knows the best places around to have a shoot. Yay. Just browse through all our photos here and see for yourself. 🙂
