Posting a photo on a dating site that doesn’t look like you is cheating. If your photographer changes so much of the shot during the edit that you end up looking like a supermodel – and you’re not one – then you’re cheating other dating site singles.
But if you post a dark, blurry, posed or unfocused photo that makes you look twenty years older than you are, then you’re cheating yourself. That’s how most photos on dating sites look.
The people who look at your profile want to know exactly who you are. They want to see you.
Our photographers have one goal: to create pictures that show you as you really are.
You’ll appear smiling and content, confident and happy, wearing the kind of clothes you’d wear on a date and looking your best. Because at your best, you’re still you. Anything else is cheating.
Of course, you can take your own photo! Anyone can push a button on a camera and produce an image. But that doesn’t mean that the picture will be the kind of photo that will win you looks and responses on a dating site – especially when you’re taking it yourself.
There are four ways of taking your own photo to put on a dating site.
You’ll see each of these approaches as you browse profiles on dating sites, and you’ll see the drawbacks with each of them. They don’t deliver the quality dates online singles are looking for. Just take a look at this video to see what we mean.
Taking your own photo is always a bad idea, unless, of course, you want to stay single.
A Walmart photographer will take a portrait picture of you for just a few bucks. But that picture won’t get you coupled up. What you save on that shoot you’ll spend on continued dating site subscriptions, bad dates and wasted evenings. When it comes to photography, you get what you pay for -- and paying nickels for a picture for a dating site picture is a waste of nickels.
When you’re sitting for a dating site photo:
Take a look at the video above, we took of a typical Walmart photo shoot and decide for yourself. Is this the kind of photo shoot you'd like to have?
Neither do we. A glamour shot is not about The Real You, it’s about the photographer creating the image that they find the most pleasing. The photographer will use heavy makeup, hair styling, unnatural lighting and heavy post production retouching.
The result is a fantasy image, and it fails on a dating site. People avoid them because they know no one looks like that, or they avoid you after the date because you didn’t measure up to the picture on the profile.
Our professional photographers are trained to stay away from this style of photography. They take natural pictures that reflect who you really are.
Feeling that you’re not photogenic is pretty common. In fact, most of our customers initially believe that they don’t photograph well. It’s usually down to two reasons:
After the photo shoot, our customers are often are amazed that they look so good, and it all comes down to using a great photographer! With the right photographer, you’ll be photogenic.
Nobody wants to waste time. The photo shoot itself takes just 45-60 minutes and to save on travel, we’ll match you to your closest photographer. Many of our photographers will even come to your home or office. You can be done in less than an hour.
On the other hand, going on bad dates because you don't have good photos will take you a lot longer…
No, you’ll feel that you’re having a ball! Ninety-nine percent of our customers have a blast during the photo shoot. They tell us that it was fun, that they felt relaxed and they really enjoyed the experience. Our photographers pride themselves on their ability to make you smile, laugh, put you at ease and take great shots.
