When you travel, how do you get a picture of you with great scenic spots? A second to brainstorm.
And these are my thoughts and ways to do!
1. Invite a stranger!
Is it good?
It’s all about luck.
If you are lucky enough, you can meet a photographer to take a picture for you.
If it’s just a normal person, the photo would very likely to become this…
Okay… we look good… but the background is not okay.
The background is okay, but we are not ready 😛
It’s usually not easy to hit the red point!
It can take half an hour to develop from randomness to a desirable one.
2. Do selfie!
A convenient way to get a picture is of course… selfie!
Haha I bet you do, and always do!
Yay! And share the photos to facebook! However, if I love the picture so much that I would like to put it to a slideshow for friends to see, or put it into an album, it’s very likely that a blurred image appeared on a big big screen.
This is what I have seen in wedding ceremonies. As a perfectionist, I just want to make sure every detail fit into the right place.
I feel sorry for them : (
So what’s my plan?
3. Hire a professional photographer to do it for you
Travel with a professional photographer! When I travel, I pay a little bit further on top of travel expense, to recruit a great photographer that I love to take pictures for me. And the photographer knows about me, knows my story and knows what I want. I love having photos being taken from time to time so that it shows the stages of development of love.
I invited a great photographer, Ashley Ludaescher, who shares a similar thought, is in favour of natural light style, letting the story unfold in a natural way. This is part of my journey when I was in Prague, in Europe. Travelling with a photographer can enjoy the city in another perspective too.

It’s just good money to invest on, to look at the photos over and over again later.
How do you want your stories to be told? Go for strangers, selfie, or a photographer?
