For the Selfie Lover

Create your own memories and upgrade from the selfies with Localgrapher. We have all had enough of omnipresent tourists with selfie sticks and low quality holiday photographs that was the original inspiration for the Localgrapher founders. Every traveler knows that no matter how luxurious the vacation is, they only bring back a few photos taken on their smart phone or a cheap digital camera. These might be sufficient to post on your Facebook wall, but would you ever frame them and place them in your living room? Would you still be proud to show these photos to your family in ten years’ time? The answer most likely is no. With trusted professional photographers on hand globally to capture your once-in-a-lifetime memories Localgrapher provides a stunning travel photo shoot you’ll cherish forever. From Los Angeles to South Africa, this service is one you will want to gift again and again! localgrapher.com Prices range from $220-$490.
