Black Tomato is partnering with world-renowned wedding photographer Christian Oth for their launch of Jetsetters, a service that merges a luxury travel experience with best in class photography. Jetsetters was born out of ongoing client demand. "At Black Tomato, our clients have increasingly requested to bring a photographer along to capture their tailor-made honeymoons, engagements and special occasions. Similarly, Christian Oth Studios had been approached by their clients seeking extraordinary locations and experiences for photo shoots."
How it works:
Clients will be matched with a travel expert who will plan every element of the trip, including consultation with Christian Oth on the vision, inspiration and feel of the photos. Black Tomato will handle all the details from selecting the most vibrant destinations to booking flights and creating a full itinerary, while also dreaming up one-of-a-kind experiences that are exhilarating and photogenic. Christian Oth will collaborate with stylists all over the globe to assemble the team to get clients camera-ready while on location. At the end of the trip, clients will receive the ultimate memento, a beautifully hand-crafted, bound book to illustrate the moments.
