ONLINE DATING PHOTOGRAPHER FAQ

ONLINE DATING PHOTOGRAPHER FAQ

Where do we shoot?

I shoot dating photos all over the Puget Sound. Typically I like to choose a location that’s relevant to you, whether it’s your hood or a favorite stomping grounds, or maybe it’s just somewhere with that gritty urban vibe that you love. We'll choose a rendezvous spot and shoot in the surrounding area. For longer shoots we may drive to a second location.

What happens if it rains?

If rain is predicted on the day you've booked your dating photo shoot we'll reschedule.

What should I wear?

Everything you wear for your shoot needs to be something that fits you nicely and that you look and feel *great* in.  Effective online dating photos make it easy for people to imagine what it would feel like to be with you you in different contexts so showing some of your range is key (weekend-casual, cleans-up-well, etc.). 

Plus, we don't want your pics shouting "shot by a pro all on the same day". This means multiple outfits. I can assist to varying degrees, from sending a basic shoot-day packing list (I do this for everyone) to full-on going shopping with you (just ask).

What is the shoot like?

Welp…it’s a little bit like a date. Just a platonic one involving a camera, lol! We'll rendezvous at our agreed-upon spot and use your car (or mine if you don't have one) as a mobile changing-room. We'll shoot for a bit in one spot, circle back to the car, change clothes, then keep wandering and shoot some more. Rinse and repeat. 

**YOU DO NOT NEED TO KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING**. 

Your only job is to have a good attitude and follow directions. It’s less like you’re modeling and more like you’re going for a walk with a bossy new friend and her camera (the results are photos that feel relaxed and natural). Get to know me a little more HERE.

What happens after the shoot?

Within a week of your shoot you’ll get a link to an online gallery where you can download your dating photos (they’re all yours!). Some extra swagger is usually in order at this point, you look GOOD. Curated collections within your gallery make it easy to plug in pics for V1 of your profile with lots of alternates for AB testing. *If you want retouching you can order it on a per-image basis but you probably won’t need it.

What's the COVID situation, can we shoot?

Dating shoots are in full swing! In fact, I'm shooting more dating photos than ever because, as one client put it recently, "online dating is the only dating right now".  So, how do we handle safety, masks etc.? Well, most shoots happen almost entirely outdoors so we're already in good shape there. Plus, I'll keep my mask on the whole time and, as we're walking from place to place, you can wear one too.
