photography for ONLINE DATING

When it comes to online dating in Houston (or anywhere, really), photos are the single most important part of your dating profile. It doesn't matter if you're on Tinder, Bumble, Hinge or any of the other dating apps. So if your photos suck, your experience on these apps will, too.

We specialize in capturing stunning, authentic photos that show off all your best attributes. Your photos will capture your charisma and confidence, which will have a major impact on both the quantity and quality of your matches. You can rest easy knowing you have one of the best online dating profiles in the Houston area.

Why hire an online dating photographer?

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.

Is this service right for me? 

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:

  • Recently single or divorced: We get it. The last 5 years of your life were spent with your ex, so every photo has them in it. You're getting back into shape, trying new things, but your photos are old and tired. We can help you.
  • Brand new to online dating: This feels like a whole new world. Where do you even begin? Don’t sweat it - it’s not as complicated or scary as you think. We can show you the ropes and make sure your profile is set up for success.
  • You're super career focused: You have your shit together and are building a life that you're proud of. You're not spending your days snapping instagram photos with friends. You don't have time, desire or patience to take the perfect selfie.

Do you offer other dating services?

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.

authenticity + data = Results

Dating in Houston (or in Texas in general) can be tricky... but I'm sure you already know that. After hundreds of clients, tests and optimization strategies we're confident that we know what works (and doesn't work) for online dating.

The good news? You don't need to reinvent the wheel or pretend to be someone you're not. Authenticity is key. We can help photograph you authentically and together we'll build an optimized, high-converting dating profile that gets you more matches in Houston, period.

What style of photos do you take?

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.

What are the best photos for Tinder?

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:

  1. Your photos must be believable & authentic. No heavy filters or touch-ups. No external lights, flashes, studios or soft boxes. You're not going to stand in front of some fancy car and flex.
  2. You have to laugh & smile. In almost every test we've ever performed, the smiling photos typically perform 2x better. That's why we aim to have a LOT of fun on our shoots and make sure you're laughing and smiling naturally.
  3. You have to show confidence & charisma. Nothing is more attractive than these two elements combined. We'll coach you through the proper body language to help you communicate this naturally.

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.

How do you measure results?

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:

  • Conducting local surveys from both men and women
  • Asking people to swipe & walk us through their process
  • Using sites like Photofeeler to test photos
  • Hiring panels of people to vote on photos

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.

The best spots for photoshoots in Houston. 📍

From Buffalo Bayou Park to the Marvin Taylor Exercise Trail, there's no shortage of amazing locations and backdrops in Houston to choose from. We've picked a few key spots in the city that offer a multitude of different backdrops all within walking distance. That way you can get multiple different "looks" from a single session.

Will my photos look like they were taken on the same day?

Nope! We want to give you a variety of different "vibes" to use and test on your profile. That's why we choose areas of Houston that have a variety of scenery, unique backdrops and coffee shops within walking distance.

We also ask you to bring multiple outfits. This way you can really get multiple different "looks" from a single photoshoot.

By the time you're done you'll have a gallery of unique images to download, all optimized for the Houston area, specifically formatted for use on your dating profiles.

What if I'm not photogenic?

The most common thing our clients say is "I hate photos of myself" or "I'm not photogenic".

No - you just haven't worked with a photographer who's dedicated to finding your best angles, coaching you on how to look natural and working with you to help you nail your photoshoot (even as a complete beginner).

We're experts at working with beginners. The majority of our clients have never had a photoshoot before. They're nervous and don't want to blow it. We've done this countless times and know countless techniques to help you ease into the shoot and feel more confident. Don't worry about "knowing how to pose" - we'll guide you through the whole thing.

By the time you're done your shoot, you'll be having so much fun that you won't want it to end. You'll realize you actually do look good on camera and the confidence high will be worth the investment alone.

What if someone I know sees me?

In the +3 years we've been doing this we've only had this happen a handful of times. There's over 2 million people in Houston, the odds are extremely low that you'll run into anyone you know.

In fact, most people that we see on the street won't be paying attention to us at all. Photoshoots happen constantly in Houston. They might look over for a split second and then go back to their day.

In the rare case that you do run into someone you know, we're totally okay with saying that we're shooting you for a blog post, or Instagram. Your privacy is important to us, so just let us know beforehand and we'll follow suit.

Since launching in 2018 we've worked with a number of incredible clients in the

"I'm going to be honest - I was skeptical. I mean, Is it really worth it to hire a dating photographer?
But after my breakup I realized I didn't have any recent photos of myself. My photographer was knowledgable, patient and super easy to work with. I couldn't believe how good I looked in my photos!
My matches pretty much went through the roof, too. A+ experience all around."

I've been doing photography professionally since 2019. It started off by taking graduation pictures for friends when I was still a sophomore in college. It has then expanded into lifestyle, branding, and online dating pictures in 2021.

Most of my friends and clients have never been in front of the camera before so I've got plenty of experience in guiding beginners.

I picked up my first camera way back in 2008 to document my backpacking trips. I started shooting mainly landscapes and progressed to shooting portraits after I got a lot of positive feedback from taking candid portraits of my friends during those trips. I like to think of myself as a Profile Picture Provider, if you will.

I started shooting mainly landscapes and progressed to shooting portraits after I got a lot of positive feedback from taking candid portraits of my friends during those trips.

What I love about this job 📸

It's no secret that profile pictures are the first thing that people look at, so you want to make sure to have some great ones. I pride myself on helping people relax and be themselves in front of the camera and this always leads to some awesome photos that will hopefully connect them with the right person for them. It truly makes me happy to see my clients love the pictures that I take for them.

Where will we be shooting 📍

Day 6 Coffee Co, 910 Prairie St Suite 100, Houston, TX 77002

I love shooting in the area near Main Street in downtown Houston because of the variety of backdrops that the colorful storefronts and interesting architecture provides. We would start at Day 6 Coffee and make our way down Main Street.

FAQ's about hiring a dating photographer in Houston.

We understand that this is a fairly new concept, but don't worry - our team is here to help you every step of the way! We've answered a few common questions below, but if you want a full breakdown on our process, check out our FAQ page (below).

Do you offer any other dating services?

We offer other dating services to help you stand out online and get as many dates as possible. Included in our Pro and All-Star package is a custom bio from our conversion-focused copywriter, Ed. You'll be asked to fill out an in-depth survey about your personality, goals, interests and goals with online dating and Ed will craft a completely custom bio that is 100% unique. Included in our All-Star package is a complimentary coaching session with Kimberly Hill, who specializes in supporting her clients to achieve their goals within dating and relationships. Kimberly helps clients all over North America and will conduct the complimentary session over Zoom.

Do you have a portrait studio?

We don't have a portrait studio, but that's by design. We've tried doing studio sessions but we found that those photos looked too "staged", and ultimately didn't perform well. That's why all of our shoots happen outdoors.Outdoor photos always look more natural. They'll show you going about your day, grabbing a coffee and cutting through a park on your way to work. Your photos will look less staged, and more candid/real. It's more of a lifestyle look than a "staged headshot" look.

Where do we do outfit changes?

Since we do all of our shoots outside, we do outfit changes at local cafes or coffee shops. We ask you to bring a duffel to your shoot filled with your clothes and outfits. Some clients have also offered to change in their cars, but we realize that's not ideal for most people. We walk in to a local coffee shop, order you a coffee (which is a great lifestyle prop, by the way!) and ask to use their washroom. Local businesses are usually pretty supportive and some cafes even let us shoot in their location!
