photography for dating profiles

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.

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.
* 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.

Photos optimized for online dating. 📈

authentic + data driven

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 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

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.

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 three areas:

  1. Gastown. Our favourite place to shoot. Gastown offers an eclectic mix of old-school charm, exposed brick walls, colourful alleyways and modern coffee shops.
  2. Metrotown. This area is best for outdoorsy looking shots with abundant natural light and greenery in the background.
  3. Canada Place. This area works well due to the variety of up-scale buildings, architecture and backgrounds.

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 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!

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

"You guys went above and beyond. I've never had a photoshoot before but by the end of it I felt like a f*cking model. The experience alone was worth it.
But the first week I went back on the apps I had more matches and superlikes than ever before. This made dating waaaay easier this last year, especially with everything going on.
Thank you guys so much."

Still have questions?

We're here to help. 🙋🏻

We understand that this is a fairly new concept, but don't worry - we're 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).

Who are the photographers I'll be working with? 📸

We currently have three stellar photographers working in the lower-mainland area, each with their own unique style.

Valeria is known for her lifestyle portraits that incorporate the environment and surroundings into the shot.

Yoshi is known for his ability to melt the background away and really make the photos pop-off the screen.

Justin (the founder) mostly works in Victoria, but sometimes works with clients on the mainland on-request.

📸 You can view samples of our work here.

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 else is included in the package?

The Basic Package is great if you just need a few quick snaps and aren't concerned with changing outfits.

The most commonly booked package is the Pro Package. This includes 15 edited photos, 3 outfit changes and a custom bio.

If you want even more bang for your buck, 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.
