"As soon as I updated my Tinder photos my match-rate nearly tripled."
- Trevon T, 33
Let's not beat around the bush; Chicago can be a tough city to date in. There's a lot of amazing people here so competition is fierce. Live in Uptown? Good luck convincing someone in Bridgeport to meet you for coffee. And the winter? Yeesh!
We can help you build a dating profile that gets you as much traction as possible for dating in the Chicago area. Your photos will be accurate, eye-catching and highly swipeable.
Because every online dating app prioritizes photos as the main deciding factor for matching. You could look like Brad Pitt in real life, but if your photos suck, you're not going to be connecting with many people.
Most people don't have great photos of themselves. So we scrap together whatever old photos we can find and hope for the best. We know these awkward selfies don't do us justice, but it's all we have.
An online dating photographer will help showcase all the great things you bring to the table. They'll show off your charisma, confidence and personality. The'll find all your best angles, help you look natural and deliver stunning photos that will stop people in their tracks.
Do you feel like you're getting the matches you deserve? Do you find yourself endlessly swiping and only getting a few matches each day?
We work with men and women of all ages, orientations and backgrounds. And while we think everyone could benefit from having great photos of themselves, there's a few areas where photos can really make a difference:
Bio Copywriting: The right bio can make or break your profile. That's why we've partnered with a professional copywriter to write an original, witty, custom-tailored bio based on your unique personality and goals.
* Included in Pro and All-Star packages
Relationship Coaching: Having the right mindset is key when dating. That's why we've partnered with Kimberly Hill (a stellar dating & relationship coach) to offer a complimentary 45-minute Zoom session for our clients. Kimberly works with professional men who are single and wanting to get back into the dating scene, but are unsure where to start, and how to move forward with clarity.
* Included in All-Star package
Personal Stylist/Shopper: Want to make sure you're dressing to impress? A personal stylist can work with you (either in-person or over Zoom) to coordinate your outfits.
Note: This isn't something we currently offer in-house, but we can refer you to the right people.
Since launching in 2018, we’ve photographed hundreds of clients. We’re always adapting and improving our approach by measuring what’s working with our existing clients. We combine this data with your unique personality to capture stunning, authentic photos that are uniquely you.
The best way we can describe our style is "lifestyle". It's natural. Authentic. Real. Genuine. Unstaged.
It's not supposed to look like you hired someone to take photos of you all day... It should look like were out on the town, enjoying yourself, looking your best and one of your friends just happened to snap a photo with their fancy camera.
We treat our clients like friends during the shoot. We get you to laugh, open up and not take yourself too seriously. This natural laughter helps the photos look authentic and less staged.
We also let you change outfits during the shoot, giving you multiple different "looks". We then pair those with different backdrops so the photos don't look like they were taken all on the same day.
After all our research we've developed a recipe that produces high-impact dating profile photos. It's not rocket science, but here's the secret sauce:
Basically, people just want to see that you're a good, trustworthy person with hobbies, a career and a life.
We'll find all of your best angles and photograph you looking your very best. Your photos will showcase all of your best attributes, while highlighting your charm, personality and confidence.
We've worked with well over 300 clients since 2018. In this time, we've learned a LOT about what works (and what doesn't). We continuously try to improve our understanding of effective dating photography, including:
Dating apps don't have built-in analytics, so we've built a custom testing framework that shows our how to accurately test/measure the performance of their photos, allowing them to see which photos work best for them.
After 6 weeks we follow up to learn what worked (and what didn't). This helps us better understand trends and seasonality data. It also helps us fine-tune our approach, allowing future clients to benefit from the learnings.
Imagine having a new and improved dating profile that highlights all your best attributes. New profile pics that show off your eyes, charisma and cheeky smile. A new dating bio that's smart, witty and original. Not only can this improve how many matches you get, but the boost to your self-confidence can help you actually enjoy online dating in Chicago again.
All of our photoshoots take place in downtown Chicago, specifically in the Arts District (East Pilsen).
We stick to this location because we've learned it inside and out. We know exactly what the light will be light at different times throughout the day, and we also know where to go if it starts raining. This way we can make sure our clients get great photos every single time.
The arts district has LOTS of variety in such a small radius, including unique architecture, cute coffee shops, red brick character walls, graffiti and so much more. This way we can pack a number of unique looks into a single session; every clients' photos are guaranteed to be unique.
During our session we might pop by Cafe Jumping Bean to grab some pics of you casually sipping a latte out front on the bench. After that we might head over to Pilsen Art House to add a splash of uniqueness to your photos, blurring out the colorful artwork behind you to capture a truly memorable profile pic. The possibilities are endless in the Arts District; we can't wait to show you!
We suggest bringing a few changes of clothes so you have a variety of looks to choose from. Luckily in Chicago we have no shortage of local cafes and coffee shops we can use to do quick outfit changes while in public.
We just hop in, order a drink (which we'll also use as a prop!) and you'll use the restroom for a quick outfit change.
And don't worry, we've scouted the cleanliest of restrooms (and the best tasting coffee) in town.
With the Pro and All-Star packages, you get three outfits total. So we'll photograph you in the outfit that you'll arrive in, then you'll do two outfit changes during your session.
Get the most out of your new profile photos and use them on other online platforms like LinkedIn, Instagram and Facebook. Having a cohesive personal brand not only helps you stand out locally in
, but it also helps you build better connections online, too.

"As I mentioned during our shoot, I've spent hundreds of dollars on Tinder Gold and always had mixed results. I didn't actually want to spend any more money on dating but I took the leap based on a friends' recommendation and hired you guys.
Here's a quick update: First day with the new profile: 50+ matches (and still going). Girls are messaging ME first and being flirty with their responses. Conversations no longer feel like I'm pulling teeth.
This changes the whole dynamic of online dating. I will sing your praises to everyone that will listen to me lol. Y'all have restored my faith in humanity. 🙏 "
