photography for ONLINE DATING

Let's face it - dating in Vancouver is tough, especially when dating apps like Tinder focus mostly on the visual side of things. Unfortunately, most people don't have recent photos of themselves that show off their charm, charisma and confidence. That's where we can help.

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

Vancouver's Original Dating App Photographers. 📈

authenticity + data = Results

We're lucky enough to have worked with hundreds of clients in the lower mainland area since 2018. We follow up with each one after 6 weeks to learn what photos worked (and which didn't). This allows us to fine-tune our approach and take better photos for our clients in the future.

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.

We know the best photo spots in Vancouver. 📍

We're blessed to live in a gorgeous city like Vancouver. That's why we've taken the time to find the best locations for portraits in and around the city. From Canada Place to Metrotown, we know all the best spots to help make your profile look incredible.

Where in Vancouver do the photoshoots take place?

All of our photoshoots take place outdoors, in natural light, in some of the most scenic areas of town. We've done indoor studio shoots in the past, but the results are never as good as the outdoor shoots, as outdoor provides a much more natural, lifestyle, candid and authentic look. We generally shoot in the following areas:

  1. Canada Place. Our new favourite place to shoot. There's a mix of waterfront, upscale office buildings, local coffee shops and architecture.
  2. Metrotown. This area is best for outdoorsy looking shots with abundant natural light and greenery in the background.

Most photoshoots are between 60-90 minutes. In that time we want to make sure you have:

  • 3 different 'looks' or 'outfits'
  • A variety of backdrop/scenes
  • Be in the very best lighting possible
  • Be close to major routes/transit

The areas that we've chosen allow us to maximize our shooting time and deliver consistently stunning photos that will level-up your profile.

Note: In the winter months, when the rain gets heavy, sometimes clients will rent indoor spaces from sites like AirBNB and thisopenspace.com. If this is something you're interested in, please inquire here.

Where do we do outfit changes?

Every session starts at a local Vancouver coffee shop. This allows us to chat briefly before the session and acts as a home-base that we can return back to.

We'll utilize the restroom of the coffee shop for outfit changes. You simply order a tea/coffee and ask for the washroom key. We've been doing it this way for 3+ years without a single issue.

Do you offer shoots in Surrey, Burnaby, Coquitlam, etc.?

We don't offer shoots outside of Canada Place or Metrotown at this time.

However, we do work with clients from all over the lower-mainland at our locations above. If you're coming from out of town, let us know and we'll give you recommendations of things to do and see while you're in town!

I've been a photographer for 10+ years. I started in fashion & lifestyle, now I use my skills to help people find love.

I was recruited in Paris France and began shooting backstage at all Paris Week Fashion shows including Men's fashion week. I have also been a travel and portrait photographer for over 8 years now. I learned to get a good portrait in a matter of minutes shooting in very fast pace environments!

What I love about this job 📸

Your profile and first photo are your first impression. Make it a good one! I think as an online dating photographer, I love seeing clients get the matches they deserve with a good quality photograph. Dating pics are crucial to scoring a good match, so it's important to have the best ones out there!

Where will we be shooting 📍

I primarily shoot near Canada Place, but I'm also available to do Granville Island (on request). Granville has a lot of colours, combined with the city landscape with the seawall in the back. Whereas Canada Place has a great mix of upscale office buildings, greenery, waterfront and cute cafes. It all just depends on your preference!

FAQ's about dating photography in the lower mainland.

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).

But what if I'm not photogenic? I hate photos of myself.

If you typically hate photos of yourself, then you're not alone. It's often awkward and uncomfortable. And chances are you don't have too many photos of yourself that you love. We're going to change this perception of yourself. Literally everyone has a good side. You just haven't worked with a photographer who is dedicated to finding yours. Our "superpower" is being able to consistently break people out of their shells. We're known for our ability to make regular people look absolutely phenomenal on-camera. Your photoshoot is also going to be a lot of fun. We'll show you an awesome time, tell you jokes and make you feel at ease. Before you know it you'll be smiling and laughing organically without us having to say "smile for the camera".

What if it rains on the day of my shoot?

Since we're in Vancouver, it means we have to be ready for rainy weather for 50% of the year. If the weather calls for a light drizzle, we can typically work through it. In fact, we actually prefer these days as the photos turn out beautifully. Fun fact: cloudy/gloomy days are actually perfect for photography as it gives soft, even lighting. However, if the forecast calls for pouring rain, we're happy to reschedule you at no additional cost. We don't want you or our cameras getting stuck in a downpour.‍

What is included in my package?

Every package comes with optimization tips, an implementation guide, a testing framework, posing guides and access to your online portal (where we'll share your photos with you). The Pro Package also includes 3 outfit changes and custom bio copywriting. The All-Star Package comes with 30 edited photos, ALL the raw files (+300) and a personalized call with Dating & Relationship Coach Kimberly Hill. In this complimentary 45-minute call, she'll walk through your goals, frustrations (especially around online dating) and help you move forward in your dating journey with clarity and confidence.
