Professional photography in Vancouver, BC for your online dating profiles. It's the easiest way to supercharge your profile and get more matches on dating apps like Tinder, Hinge, Bumble, OK Cupid and Match.com.
"I went from getting 1-2 matches per day to 20+. I'm honestly stunned."
- Marion K, 29, Vancouver BC
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. We're here to change all that.
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.
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.
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.
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 Gastown to Metrotown, we know all the best spots to help make your profile look incredible.
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 three areas:
Most photoshoots are between 60-90 minutes. In that time we want to make sure you have:
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.
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.
We don't offer shoots outside of Metrotown, Gastown and Canada Place 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!
