5 Top Tips for Capturing the Perfect Pictures of your Luxury Vacation


If you have enjoyed a fabulous vacation, it is likely that you will want to remember the experience. This is especially true if you are someone who likes to travel all the time. Instead of letting your trips blur into one, it is important that you remember them as individual experiences. One way to do this is by taking incredible photos on your vacation! Then, when you return, presenting these pictures in a thoughtful and unique way. If you are searching for inspiration, you will need to read on. Below are five top tips for capturing the perfect pictures of your luxury vacation.

Choose the perfect accommodation:

When you are planning your holiday photos, it is important that you take your accommodation into consideration. Ideally, you want to find accommodation that boasts a beautiful and luxurious aesthetic. For instance, at Abbey Inn Hotel Group, you can find stunning Hotels in St George, Utah. Why settle for less, when you can have the best? Luxury accommodation is the first step towards a beautiful holiday experience.

Invest in the perfect camera:

If you are determined to take amazing snaps of your vacation, you will need to invest in a high-quality camera. This is the best way to avoid blurry photos that fail to pick up the beauty of your destination. If you are not overly keen on technology, you should look out for a simple yet effective model. Try to strike the right balance between ease of use and quality results.

Take plenty of action shots:

Your holiday photos will be underwhelming if you fail to include some action shots. Make sure that you take lots of pictures when you are out and about. Why take a series of standard photos, when the perfect action shot is a lot more likely to impress your friends and family? Taking action shots will help your loved ones to get a sense of your trip. If you get it right, everyone will feel as though they were right there with you.

Dress to impress:

When you are preparing for your vacation, you will need to think carefully about your outfit options. Try to plan a few outfits that are sure to look beautiful in photographs. Perhaps you could plan a couple of nights, during your vacation, where you make an effort to go out in style. Alternatively, you could invest in flattering pieces that are perfect for day-wear and are sure to stand out for the right reasons.

Display your images in style:

Once you have taken the perfect photographs of your luxury holiday, it is important that you display your images in style. Make sure that you invest in quality prints. You could even have certain images blown up and displayed around your home. Alternatively, you could have a go at editing them yourself and sharing them on social media. Just remember that photographs are a fantastic way to bring back amazing memories. That is why they need to be on display, instead of being tucked out of sight.

    Action shots are so critical for good photos! It’s not just about posing and looking good in that outfit. Thanks for sharing 🙂

    I agree a good camera is essential. I invest a little more money in the lens than the body, as I hate having to switch out lenses. One thing I need to do more is print some of my photos on canvas and display them. There always seems to be so much to do, that displaying them gets set aside.

      I totally agree, Lara! I need to get my act together and print some out, perhaps as Christmas gifts?

    These are all great tips, and especially the part about a good camera. It is definitely a costly investment but one that (in my opinion) is worth it tenfold. I am always happy to have high quality DSLR photos that I can blow up and turn in to a canvas print to decorate my home with. Most of my friends use their iPhones, which while they look great on the tiny screen, are not necessarily going to be good for making photo books or canvases once back home.

      You’re so right! iPhone photography is convenient but it’s only really good for Instagram, not printing.

    Nice tips all. Getting the proper dresses so that you are photographed in style is very important. Also we need to think of printing some of our great pictures and use them to decorate our home. Our DSLR does a lot of work and we need to showcase that too 🙂
