I don't know about you, but it's hard enough scheduling time for photoshoots in Philly where I'm based.  But when I'm traveling, it's even harder when you also have to find a photographer that also fits your aesthetic.  Luckily I discovered Shoot My Travel, a website where travelers can connect with professional photographers in over 250 locations (and bonus, it was founded by women!)
So how does Shoot My Travel work? It's pretty easy.  The first step is to select your destination.  I travel to NYC often enough, but had yet to do an official shoot there.  When I had the chance to collaborate with Shoot My Travel, I knew this was my opportunity!  

After selecting the city, it was time to pick the photographer.  There were so many talented photographers in NYC, but Caitee's photos caught my eye immediately.  I loved her style and saw that she had worked with fashion bloggers before so I booked my session with her.

When booking a session, there are multiple packages to choose from.  I went with the You & The City package, an hour long experience that includes a private tour and recommended photo spots, 15 high-res photos, and photos delivered within 48 hours!
Also while booking, I had to offer dates that I was looking for.  Luckily I was able to provide a few options but I recommend that you book as soon as you know when you're traveling (but at least 5 days before.)  Caitee emailed me soon after to confirm our session and help select a venue.  It was so fun to shoot with her and she was fun to chat with as well.

Within 2 days of my shoot, Shoot My Travel notified me that I could pick my 15 favorite photos (edited by Caitee) that were included with the package.  If you can't choose just 15, no worries - you can add on extra photos.
Here's a peek at one of my looks!  I had a really great experience with Shoot My Travel and Caitee and highly recommend this service.  I've even been looking at some of the other cities listed and it's giving me serious wanderlust...

Can't wait to share my two looks with you here on Paint The Town Chic soon!

Thanks to Shoot My Travel for providing me with a complimentary photoshoot to try out their service.  All opinions shared here are my own.
