photography for ONLINE DATING

Most guys in Phoenix insist that online dating is difficult. Minimal matches, ghosting and conversations that go nowhere make it an uphill battle. But how can someone know you're a catch if they can't see it in your profile? Your bathroom selfie? Screams low effort. That old photo of you at the Cardinals game? Doesn't show anything unique about your personality.

We work with men and women in the Phoenix area to capture stunning portraits that highlight all your best assets. We focus on showcasing your "good side" while communicating your confidence and charisma. We help you build an online dating profile that is specifically designed for right-swipes. Your photos will be authentic, unique and hella charming.

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

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.
: This isn't something we currently offer in-house, but we can refer you to the right people.


authenticity + data = Results

People often ask us "What are the best Tinder photos for Phoenix?" and our answer is always the same. The best photos for online dating ANYWHERE in Arizona are the ones that highlight your confidence, charisma and unique personality.

We'll work with you to find your good side and give you the very best photos of yourself. We'll highlight your unique personality and can even incorporate your hobbies/career into your shoot. Your profile will stand out head and shoulders above your competition. Our clients say they often see results in the very first day.

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.

Phoenix, AZ


We've searched for the most unique backdrops in Phoenix to help take your portraits to the next level. We shoot in a range of locations; from urban to outdoors, from rustic to upscale.

The best part is that each location has enough variety around it that we can give you at least 3 unique and distinct "looks" during your photoshoot. This way it looks like the photos were taken on different days, at different times.

Where's the best spots in Phoenix for portraits?

It depends on the vibe you're going for.

Want a more rugged, outdoorsy look? Granada Park is perfect for this type of portrait.

Urban? Let's grab a coffee and head to the arts district.

Upscale? The Tempe Town Lake area is gorgeous year round.

Choose the photographer and location that fits your unique style. We'll take care of the rest.

Will I get a variety of looks/locations?


The last thing you want is 6 nearly identical photos on your dating profile. We want you to have a variety of different looks/vibes to choose from.

That's why our clients typically bring 3 different outfits to the shoot, to give them a variety of different "looks". Each time we do an outfit change, we switch up the backdrop and location. We work with high-end camera gear, so we typically blur out the background to make you "pop".

We also know these areas like the back of their hand, so we'll even match the backdrop to what you're wearing. Bringing a hoodie and jeans? We'll move to a more urban environment. Wearing a black button-up dress shirt? We'll put you in scenario that screams "date night", like in front of a coffee shop or restaurant.

What's the difference in hiring a dating photographer?

If you just want some new photos of yourself, there's hundreds of photographers in Phoenix you could hire.

But if you're looking for photos that can actually move the needle and help you match with more people, that's what we do best.

Not all portraits are created equally. Some style of portraits (like acting headshots) actually perform worse on online dating apps than phone photos. It's not about the colors or the type of camera being used... it's about what we're communicating in the photo that counts.

Your photographer needs to specialize in working with people who hate having their photos taken. They need to know the tricks to highlight your confidence and charisma, even if you're not feeling it yourself. They need to know how to optimize the crop so that the photos actually display well on dating apps.

This has been our sole focus for the last 3.5 years. We've worked with literally hundreds of clients from all different areas and backgrounds, so our data-set is rock solid. Bottom line? This is what we do best.

"I almost gave up on online dating because I was getting literally NO matches.
This was my last attempt at online dating, so I kept my expectations low.
But I couldn't believe how much of a difference new photos made. Within the first 48 hours I had women messaging ME (which has never happened before). It's like dating suddenly got put on easy mode."

📖 About Me

I have been a photographer for 7 years! During my time as a photographer I have shot a wide range of photographs. From Landscapes to real estate, to fashion, & engagements, families, newborns and my personal favorite, portraits.

What I love about this job 📸

I love to help people and I love to photograph. It is a dream being able to do both. My favorite thing about photographing portraits for dating profiles is bringing out someones personality and true beauty in a photo. Today's dating world is weird, and mostly online. Let me help you improve your online dating experience and relieve some of that weirdness!

Where will we be shooting 📍

Snakes & Lattes, 20 W 6th St, Tempe, AZ 85281

This is a hip coffee shop in an area with cool architecture, shops, alleyways and urban areas nearby. It's a fantastic spot to start our shoots as there's so much variety for backdrops and interesting locations within walking distance.

All we'll need you to do is fill out a survey about your goals, ambitions, lifestyle and background and we'll take care of the rest.

Yes! In fact, after the shoot we'll put together an online gallery with the very best photos from our shoot.

Any date ideas for the Phoenix area?

Here are the best date ideas for the Phoenix Area (as voted by our clients): Hidden Track Café & Bodega - This hidden gem is located on W Monroe Street, making it central to almost everything. It's cozy, romantic and off the beaten track. The coffee they serve is fantastic and the surrounding area is great for a walk afterwards. // https://hiddentrackcafe.com/ Go Bowl @ Uptown Alley - A vintage date idea that's fun and a little absurd. Most people suck at bowling; you can suck together and laugh at yourselves to break the tension of a nerve-wrecking date. Bonus points goes to Uptown Alley in Surprise for their neon & blacklight bowling. // https://www.uptownalleysurprise.com/ Different Pointe of View - The food and views here are some of the best in the city. The restaurant is actually located in the Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs Resort. This place has been recommended time and time again and we understand why. Tip: Save this ace for date #2 or #3. // https://tapatiocliffshilton.com/dining/different-pointe-of-view/
