21. Ready for Your Close-Up? Vacation & Family Photographs

image095We’ve all been there.  After a wonderful beach vacation on the Outer Banks we discover that the pictures we have taken are blurry, over-exposed, missing tops of heads, or missing important family members completely, as in the “official family photographer”. Relying on the courtesy of strangers passing by is not always the best way to get the perfect vacation family photographs.

According to a recent segment on Good Morning America, more and more people are taking advantage of local photographers to help them show their friends and other family members what a great time they had on vacation.

Families have been coming to the Outer Banks for generations for their vacations and family reunions.  More recently the Outer Banks has become one of the most popular places for destination weddings in the U.S. Not surprisingly, the Outer Banks just happens to have a large number of tremendously talented photographers!

So why not take advantage of this happy coincidence and hire a local professional photographer. That way you can let your friends and family members put down their cameras and cell phones and join in your fabulous group pictures, which will now include everyone… all body parts intact.
