photography for dating profiles

It's true; the dating scene is Seattle kinda sucks. Between the rain, the pandemic and the Seattle freeze (we are pretty standoffish) it's a miracle when two people genuinely connect and find love. Our goal is to help make online dating suck a little bit less by giving you photos that stand out and show off all your best assets.

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 provide any 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.

Get one of the best profiles in Seattle. 🏆

authentic + data driven

We can help you build a dating profile that's real, authentic and effective for the Washington area. While your profile will be optimized for Seattle, the photos will work equally as great when you travel, too.

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 online dating?

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 know which photos work best?

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.

Backdrops that stand out

"Oh great, another photo in front of the space needle." 🥱 We skip the boring backdrops and take you to unique, picturesque areas. Nothing too common or touristy. We want you to stand out, not blend-in.

We might get a shot of you sipping a latte out front of Caffe Ladro, or heading to work with your laptop in-hand & tall buildings behind you. Or maybe taking in the arts with tasteful murals & graffiti behind you.

Where in Seattle do you offer photoshoots?

We currently offer photoshoots in West Seattle. This gives us access to Lincoln Park, Schmitz Park, and Alki Beach areas, which are all fantastic spots to shoot.

Do you offer shoots in Renton, Kirland, Remond, Bellevue, etc.?

Not at this time. But the trek to downtown isn't far, so we hope you can make it over!

As much as we love these areas, it's difficult for us to navigate brand new shooting locations and produce excellent results for our clients every time. We have to factor in elements such as weather (ie. rain/snow), how the light moves throughout the day, available backdrops and more.

That's why we start our shoots in the same area of town that we know like the back of our hand. We know where everything is, where the light falls at certain times of day, where to take you if it starts raining, etc.

This area of Seattle offers a wide variety of different vibes/backdrops all within a 4 block radius. We can shoot with the skyscrapers in the back, give you a rustic/old school vibe, whisk you into a quaint coffee shop or take you to some urban graffiti - all within 60 minutes.

Couldn't I just hire a regular photographer in Seattle?

You absolutely could! And if you're looking for recommendations, we have a bunch of photographers in the Seattle area that we love.

We offer a specific solution tailored to a specific problem. We've put in the research to figure out the best types of photos for online dating and built our systems around it. This is what we do best and what we'll continue to do.

Believe it or not, traditional headshots don't work as well for online dating (trust me, we've tried). Even if they have a nice camera, It's not about "picture quality" as it is the context of the photo.

If you're looking for success in this specific area, we can help you. If you're just looking for some nice photos, we're happy to point you in the right direction and refer you to other incredible photographers in the Seattle area.

We're thrilled to have worked directly with over 300+ happy customers so far.

"I typically hate photos of myself, so I was dreading my photoshoot...
Not only did the photos turn out great (I seriously can't believe I look that good), but the whole experience was top-notch.
The photoshoot was a blast. Plus all the little details like the onboarding emails, testing and execution guides, tips on what to wear, the copywriting... This was my best investment of 2020. I'd recommend this to anyone."

Best Cafes for First Dates in Seattle

We're big fans of Analog Coffee on Summit Ave in Capitol Hill. Get to know each other over delicious lattes featuring laid-back vinyl beats and a super cozy atmosphere. After you're done you can head over to Cal Anderson park to enjoy the fresh air.

Favorite Date Spot in Seattle

If you want a dark, romantic spot to chow down on aphrodisiacs like smoked mussels... Serafina is your place. This small Italian restaurant is located at 2043 Eastlake Ave E and is our go-to for a second or third date. While you're there, be sure to try the Manhattan Superiore or the Midnight Negroni. Both are 👌.

Hidden Date Spots in Seattle

Want to kick it old-school with your date? Head over to Rodeo's Drive-In Movie Theater for a unique date. Get some evening snacks, cozy up in your car and listen to the movie through your stereo. They typically (and surprisingly) have a great selection of latest releases, including Marvel movies.

Best dating coach in Seattle

The dating & relationship coach we recommend above all else is Kimberly Hill. Although she's not local to Seattle (she's based out of Vancouver) she operates 100% over Zoom and has numerous clients in the Washington area.

She's a great fit for 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.

If you’re feeling things like frustration around dating apps, anxiety, loneliness, or confusion about what you really want and how to get started with dating, this is for you.
