About my background:

I actually have a masters in science. So I didn't start my photography career until the pandemic! And it has been such an adventure. I am known in San Francisco as the fitness photographer, but I am also known to take amazing photos of people. My next chapter now is helping people capture their best moments. Which is why I am a Tinder Photographer.

We are visual human-beings. So my passion is helping you capture that swipe stopper dating pics for people to see. You will get the best photos for dating apps, and you'll find special person. That is what I hope for you. And hopefully that special person will lead to something even more. Ultimately, we are here to help you find love.

My favorite spot in SF for portraits:

Russian Hill has many coffee shops and local retail stores. Not only that, the people are incredibly friendly and love San Francisco. You are also 30 minutes away from walk to the Golden Gate Bridge.

Overall fantastic experience and results.

Vinson is an amazing photographer! I am not used to getting my photo taken, but he made me feel so comfortable right from the start. He was great at communicating his vision, while also being very open to any ideas I may have had. He treats this as a truly collaborative process.

Vinson showed me my photos along the way to make sure he was capturing what I wanted. The shoot was the perfect mix of urban backdrops and natural settings. He even went over the 1 hour to accommodate for the 3 outfit changes and walking to the various locations.

The end results were STUNNING. These are the best photos I've ever seen of myself, and that's greatly due to Vinson's eye and skills. Overall fantastic experience and results. Thanks again, Vinson!! You're the best.

Creative, adaptive, and professional. ✨

Vinson is a true professional. Talented, creative, and a pleasure to work with. It was my first time doing something like this, and Vinson took extra steps to help me feel comfortable and at my best (thank you for the coffee!).

I greatly appreciate how in the days leading up to the shoot, Vinson gave me pointers on what to wear in order to have the best photos possible! He even shared with me a style board that gave me some inspiration in terms of what outfits to pick. Vinson has an eye for style and he knows what outfits will look nice on photo.

When it came to the day of the shoot, Vinson was very efficient, but at the same time I didn’t feel rushed. He knows the city like the back of his hand; he took us seamlessly from spot to spot, and we discovered some hidden alleys that produced some nice photos as well! I like how he had a rough idea of where we were going to go, but he was also open to seeing what new spots the city had to offer.

I appreciate how adaptive Vinson is. We both showed up ahead of schedule, and I was going to go for a coffee before meeting him; however, he suggested we start our shoot early and we could use the coffee cup as a prop. Vinson is a talented creative. He knows where to shoot, how to shoot, how to edit, how you should pose, etc.

During our shoot, he shared his creative vision, but also invited me to share my thoughts as well. Even though I don’t have any experience in this domain, I appreciate that he involved me in this process, while still guiding the shoot with his creative vision.

The photos turned out fantastic, and I have received many compliments from friends :) Would highly recommend Vinson.

Utterly awesome.

Vinson was utterly awesome - he had a gameplan, gave me feedback on outfits, showed me how to smile? I could not recommend him more. He had these little moments of 'artistic brilliance' - and would experiment with shots in the moment and snagged some of the best shots of the day. If you're serious about getting great photos - and want someone that \*knows how\* to do it with that "X Factor", Vinson is the only one. Get him.
I like Vinson. :)

Vinson was awesome!! The photos blew away my expectations by ten miles. Before the shoot, Vinson sent me helpful emails to help get me prepared and suggested locations. When I arrived, he made me feel comfortable, suggested outfit combinations, and got me laughing during the shoot. I've shared the photos with a few people so far and they are blown away! Six stars if I could!
I would definitely recommend.

Vinson was very helpful in choosing a convenient starting shooting location, planning an ideal route to fit the scenes that I was looking for, and in coaching me in body language and facial expressions for the photos! I, like other clients I imagine, was very new to having my photos taken in public and was nervous, but Vinson's sense of humor helped me through it and about 15 minutes into the shoot I really felt like I was getting into it. Vinson is also accommodating of this nervousness by choosing locations that aren't very crowded, and the more I shot, the more I realized how little other people care about us shooting. I also love Vinson's editing style, and I was pleased with my final results. While the photographers do have a great eye for what looks good, I would also, as the client, be sure to communicate what you like during the shoot so the photographer have a better idea of which photos to edit and deliver to you. Overall, I would definitely recommend the services offered, as there is great value to be had from the packages and from working with Vinson if you get the chance!
