Day of the photoshoot


Q: What should I wear to the photoshoot?

A: Whatever that makes you feel fabulous! You are on a holiday so feel free to wear that makes you feel the most comfortable.


You may want to wear clothes that complement the other people in your photograph, or surroundings. There are no rules on what prints or colors to wear. You can rock yourself in an all black or white outfit or colorful printed skirt/shirt. It’s your own paparazzi time so don’t be shy to stand out!


Don a huge floppy hat, red umbrella, printed scarves or hot pink candy floss… you can make your shoot as fun as you want with your creativity. However, a million dollar smile is mandatory to the shoot!


Q: Where will I meet my photographer?

A: We have a list of pre-selected spots close to great shoot locations. However, you can discuss with your photographer to meet at your hotel or at certain location of your preference agreed with the photographer prior to the shoot.


We will email you clear meeting instructions with the photographer’s contact details to find each other, if necessary. You can always message the photographer through the site.


Q: Do I have to pay for the travel fees to get to the shoot location?

A: If your shoot meets the itinerary of the package, then you only need to pay for your own travel expense. However, if you need to cover additional locations, you may have to pay for your photographer travel expense. We suggest you discuss any additional locations with your photographer prior to the shoot. Sometimes, the photographer will also bring their own transport.


For locations, that requires entry fee/tickets such as a castle or a carousel, you are responsible to pay for you and the photographer.


Note: Shoots more than 20 miles outside city centers may be subject to a small travel fee on the discretion of the photographer



Q: What if I am running late?

A: Please call/text the photographer’s mobile to let him or her know immediately. Depending on the photographer’s schedule and discretion, you may be able to extend or re-schedule the photo shoot but we cannot guarantee it.


If the photographer is unable to extend or reschedule at a time convenient for both the parties, any time that has passed from your original start time will be forfeited, and you may shoot for the remainder of the time you have booked. The number of photos delivered may be adjusted to reflect the actual time spent on the photoshoot.


We strongly suggest arriving atleast 10-20 mins early so that you can connect with your photographer over a cuppa/Prosecco and begin your experience in calm and relaxed state. Please add 10 mins to your travel’s easy to be lost in a new city or a quick stop at a souvenir shop  J

After the photoshoot

Q: Do I own the photos?

A: Yes! They are yours to keep forever for personal use (not commercial). Print them for your holiday/ Christmas card, enlarge them and hang them on the wall or share them on social media. We would like to showcase your photos in our portfolio, but if you are shy, just us let know and we will never post anything publicly. Your photographer will retain the copyright.


Q: Can I get all the shots that the photographer took?

A: Unfortunately not. Our photographers can take multiple snaps to get ‘the  perfect shot’. All the photographs shot are in raw format which means the photographer will have to edit hundreds of not so perfect snaps.

However, if you remember some ‘must have’ shots that didn’t make it to the gallery, let the photographer know and he/she will do their best to get them to you.

A: SnapMyTrip photographers typically have a candid style relying on natural outdoor lighting. Photograpgers will provide basic editing, such as cropping and color correctness. Extensive photoshopping is not included.

A: Please contact us here with the details of your party or project and your preferred photographer (s). We will then send you more information about the pricing for such packages
