I am so excited to share with you reviews and a promo code for Flytographer – my newly discovered very favorite company – ever! Two of my very favorite things in this life are travel and photography. Nothing makes me start dreaming with excitement like booking airfare to somewhere I love (or somewhere I have never been but know that I am going to love). Coming home and printing a gorgeous canvas for my wall of said place is just icing on the cake.

Quite often I come home from vacations with some gorgeous scenic images, but when it comes to images of the people I love, all I have is a set of some pretty lacking selfies. I think we have gotten pretty good at it…but still. I was craving some gorgeous images that included flattering angles of my very favorite people.
Then, the clouds parted and the sun shone down and lit up my world when my sister referred me to Flytographer. A bit dramatic? I think not.
Flytographer is a company based in Canada that is making everyone’s dreams come true. They have found talented photographers in almost every country worldwide who are waiting to upgrade your vacation photos from selfies to gorgeous images worth gracing the walls of your home (or at least your Instagram account). Photographers are available in over 200+ cities around the world, which means that you can almost find the perfect fit for your style no matter what amazing destination you are going to visit.
Flytographer Reviews: Olga in Paris
Before our Photo Shoot
The process was so seamless and easy. We browsed the Flytographer website and carefully looked over the gallery and reviews provided for each photographer. Once we chose Olga, we were assigned a concierge who ensured that all questions were answered and that our arrangements were set. We also answered specific questions such as how much guidance we wanted in regards to posing and what words described the style of session we wanted. I chose “sweet, natural, romantic.”
Flytographer offers several different lengths of photo sessions and we chose to book for a one hour shoot. Options begin at 30 minutes which would be perfect if you have the attention spans of young children to consider!
We were put in touch with Olga who helped us confirm our photo location based on preferences and she advised the best time and place to meet based on her extensive experience shooting in that area. We were given her cell phone number in case of a last minute question or issue.
During our Photo Shoot
We met with our photographer, Olga, at the Eiffel Tower at sunrise. We met her 10 minutes before our shoot was to begin in order to confirm preferences and the process. It was so worth the early alarm clock to watch the world wake up in such a beautiful city. Trocadero is an extremely popular and busy tourist location (rightly so-it’s stunning!) so a sunrise shoot is the only way to ensure that you can capture the essence of the place without a million photo bombing people.
After several poses and shots near the Trocadero, we walked a few minutes down the path to get a few photos from another view on Avenue de Camoens. Unfortunately, construction blocked the exact shot I was hoping for there, but Olga handled it beautifully and delivered other compositions that we love just as much.
Olga made us feel so comfortable during our shoot. She was incredibly sweet and amazingly talented. Her husband was with her acting as her assistant and it is our understanding that she often joins him on his shoots as his assistant as well. it was extra special working with a husband and wife team and ensured that no detail was missed.
After Your Photo Shoot:
Flytographer promises that you will receive your digital files within 5 days of your photo shoot. From our experience, we have received a sneak peek photo within 2 days and the full collection within 3-4 days. We love receiving a sneak peek before we even leave our trip! Somehow it makes leaving just a little bit easier when you know you have your trip captured so beautifully. We are in love with our beautiful images and will treasure them forever.
Their platform is SO simple to use:
- Visit Flytographer.com. Choose your city. Browse the galleries of the photographers in that city. Choose the one you love and send in an inquiry. You are quickly assigned a concierge who helps you through the process of pinning down the details. Your photographer will quickly confirm availability and help you choose a location if you need advice.
- Meet your photographer at the time of your session. You smile and laugh your way through your photo session (either as a solo traveler or with your family or friends).
- Wait only 5 days (often not long enough to even get home), and you receive your beautiful digital files in your inbox. Smile and reminisce and your heart soars that your memories are so beautifully captured. You tell your family and friends that you have discovered the best souvenir ever!
- You then start planning your next trip based on where you would like to book your next Flytographer photo shoot (oh, is that just me?).
