Get stunning portraits for your online dating profiles. It's the easiest way to stand out and get more matches on dating apps like Tinder, Hinge, Bumble, OK Cupid and Match.com.
"After using the new photos I'm getting roughly 10x more matches every single day. I'm blown away."
- Matt, 29, Long Beach, California
Online dating apps like Tinder, Bumble or Hinge focus heavily on the visual aspect of dating. We specialize in capturing photos that are candid, authentic and true to you. They're designed specifically to highlight your confidence and grab people's attention in dating apps.
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 starting in 2018, we've photographed over 200 clients. After 6 weeks, we collect data on what photos worked best (ie. poses, locations, outfits and editing styles). We then tweak our future photoshoots based on that data, which gives our clients even higher match ratios.
TL;DR: We're always learning and optimizing.
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.
Dating in LA can kinda suck, but it doesn't have to. Our goal is to level the playing field and make sure everyone has a fair chance at love.
There's so many amazing places to take portraits in LA, but we've found some of the absolute best places in town, including spots in East LA, Downtown and Santa Monica.
Since your shoot is roughly an hour long, you need to make sure the location we shoot has enough variety of backdrops/scenery to make it look like the photos were all taken on different days.
The locations we've chosen have a good mix of urban, city, street, cultural and business backdrops all within a 6 block radius to maximize your shoot.
Don't sweat it! For 90% of our clients this is their very first photoshoot ever. Because of this, we've taken extra steps to ensure you are well prepared and comfortable for your shoot, including:
We're experts at working with beginners. In fact, most clients end up telling us how much fun they had on their shoot. We also routinely get clients who re-book with us simply because they enjoyed the first experience so much.
Bottom line? You're in good hands.
Get the most out of your shoot. You get unlimited usage rights, which means you can use your photos on Instagram, LinkedIn, Facebook or your own website.See how it works

"The entire experience from start to finish was top-notch.
They sent me emails with tips and advice about what to wear, how to pose, etc. They were super knowledgable during the shoot and guided me through the whole thing.
It's extra hard meeting people during COVID so this came at just the right time. The photos have made a massive difference. Honestly, this might sound kinda lame, but this was one of my top 3 experiences of 2020."
