LEVEL UP

Custom Online Dating Photography

your best current photos + intentional new dating photos 
= GAME CHANGER

When you want your dating profile to attract people who will really light you up, a random collection of photos rummaged from your camera roll just doesn't cut it.  

To maximize your matches with ideal-fit partners, you need your dating photos to do more than show people what you look like.

You need your online dating photos to tell a story about you as a person...

You've taken a good hard look at your current dating photos (or the ones you're considering if you're new to online dating), and decided you're partway there but you know you can do better. 

The Level Up dating photography package begins with an analysis of your current dating photos so we can build on the best of what you already have.
RAD, THIS IS WHAT I NEED

Online dating is about to get really, really good

Once we've identified the best 2-4 of your current dating profile photos (or the photos in your camera roll if you're new to dating apps) we can diagnose what kinds of shots you’re missing that will take your online dating profile to the next level.

THE PLAN:

Take your dating profile from lackluster (or incomplete) to top shelf, show-stopper, heart-throbber, panty-dropper.

(lol! had to, I got carried away with the rhyming πŸ˜†).

The Level Up dating photo package adapts around you

Do you have a good online dating headshot and a solid full-body photo? 

Rad! You’re showing people what you look like (essential) but you’re not giving them any details about what your life is like and what it might actually feel like to date you (also essential if you want to attract potential long-term partners).

You'll fill out a questionnaire about yourself and I'll use your answers to build a plan for a dating photo shoot that focuses on showing you off in the kinds of environments you enjoy, doing things that you love.

Sipping a latte at your favorite coffee shop? βœ” For sure.

...Or, maybe your best current dating profile photos happen to be photos of you adventuring and doing things you love.

[ Like Kim, who had some epic photos from her travels in Africa, but no dating photos that properly showed off her face ]

Your dating photos are giving potential matches a glimpse into your life (smart for values alignment and soul connection), but they are failing to properly show off what you look like (also important for physical attraction!). 

If this is your situation, your Level Up dating photo shoot may be more focused on dating headshot photos and portraits so people can see your face and your eyes, and get a feel for your energy.

I NEED DATING HEADSHOTS

Alright, but what am I going to wear for my dating photos? 

I’ve got you covered there too. 

Your Level-Up dating photo shoot is customized with 100% intentionality-- from the kinds of dating photos we create for you, to the clothes you wear.

Are your existing dating photos all in activewear/casual clothes? 

We’ll make sure we photograph you in street clothes and throw in at least one dressier outfit so potential matches can imagine being out with you somewhere nice (trust me, even if your style is really casual, it’s a good idea to dress up for at least one of your dating photos). 

A detailed dating photo shoot wardrobe planning guide (with pictures!) will walk you through exactly how to organize outfits for maximum range within your authentic style.

What if I'm shy in front of a camera?

You're not alone! The vast majority of my dating photography clients tell me some version of "ugh, I don't like having my picture taken" (to which I reply: "challenge accepted!" πŸ’ͺ🏼)

I’ve got all sorts of tricks up my sleeve to draw out the kinds of body language and expressions from you to communicate confidence, warmth, and magnetism in your new online dating photos

(yes, even if you’re typically hella awkward).

Once you have your new dating photos, choosing which ones to use, plus which of your existing photos, and in what order--it's not easy! And it's not just you-- research shows that we are poor judges of our own profile photos.

You tell me your #1 dating app, and I will hand-pick your best dating photos and put them in the order that will hook maximum cuties, like I did for Kyle's Hinge profile.
OK PHEW, SOUNDS EASY!
Kyle's Hinge photos from his Level-Up photo shoot in Bellevue :

If this is all feels a little bit abstract, here's a look at how it played out when Justin booked a Level-Up dating photography package...

Justin's Level-Up dating photo experience 

The dating photos Justin already had:

All of the photos in Justin's camera roll were from his outdoorsy mountain adventures (he's REALLY outdoorsy. But he told me he's also not *only* outdoorsy. We agreed that he was over-sampling on active/mountain-y dating photos). 

The dating photos Justin needed:

Justin needed dating headshot photos and portraits to capture his face and his eyes, and to show potential matches that he's not just adventurous, outdoorsy, and in great shape, he's also cute and has a life in the city!

Our dating photography plan:

Justin's favorite dating app is Hinge (it's mine too). So we knew we needed to end up with 6 square photos that would capture the attention of the kinds of babes Justin would be excited about dating.

I started by helping Justin choose the best three of his mountain photos very intentionally. *Three outdoorsy shots might be too many for some folks but mountaineering is a HUGE part of Justin's life and he hopes to meet a woman who is similarly passionate about the outdoors). 

From Justin's original batch of dating profile photos we chose:

βœ” a group photo with friends (group photos can be tricky but this one passes all the tests!) 

βœ” an epic summit shot (so you know he's no casual hiker), and...

βœ” a kinda subdued, climbing shot by the coast (Justin wasn't so sure about this one but I felt strongly-- it feels intimate, like I'm on an excursion with a lover, his face looks content and a little sleepy... it's hard to explain but ladies you feel me, Justin looks so sexy in this shot!)

The goal with Justin's new dating photos:

Balance out those mountain shots with some portraits in the city that show off Justin's looks to spark attraction and help women imagine meeting up with Justin for a date.

Our itinerary for Justin's Level Up dating photo shoot focused on capturing him in urban environments, in street clothes, showing off his face and his eyes, and sharing a bit of his day-to-day vibe. 

We did Justin's dating photo shoot near his home in Seattle on Capitol Hill.

Justin leveled-up his dating profile with portraits & headshot photos

Here's a little peek at some highlights from Justins's Level-Up online dating photo shoot

After Justin's dating photo shoot I curated a set of six square photos for his Hinge profile blending his outdoorsy dating  photos with his brand new dating headshots and portraits.

Justin looks GOOD! Beyond that, he comes across as engaging, multi-dimensional, relatable, and genuine (aka total boyfriend materialπŸ’•). 

Look at Justin's Hinge profile photos now!

Justin's Hinge photos will definitely be most magnetic to babes who skew outdoorsy (that was our intention) but he's no longer coming across as one-dimensional and missing matches with women who want a partner who also enjoys things that aren't on the mountain.

Here's a text message from Justin after he updated his Hinge photos:
