Swipe Right! Why Professional Profile Pictures Are the New Must-Have for Dating Apps

Maybe you've tried selfies, a cuddly pic with the cutest furry friend in your life (even if it's not technically your dog, oh well! It least it shows you like animals, right?) and even did a little hair and makeup before going hiking so your "outdoorsy, adventure picture" strikes that perfect balance between rugged and cute. Maybe you’ve cleaned your mirrors and added some extra lights to hit them angles and get that highlight just right. Maybe you've tried a bunch of different things, and you're still not 100% in love with your online dating profile. We hear you, and we’ve got a solution for you.

Real quick, here are some stats you should definitely pay attention to if you're looking for love online (like, basically if you’re single in 2019):

As of 2018, 1 in 5 committed relationships begin online.

In fact, couples who met online or through an app accounted for 17% of marriages last year. Suddenly, bars and mutual friends aren't seeing the winning statistics anymore. These are the general stats, but we think it’s much higher! A good chunk of our wedding clients last year met on some sort of social media!

People who swiped right on their partner are more likely to say the relationship is satisfying.

And that means happier couples, longer-lasting marriages, and fewer exes (because we all have enough already). According to Business Insider,  "People who met their spouse online said their marriage was more satisfying than those who met their spouse offline. Plus, marriages that began online were less likely to end in separation or divorce." And fun fact, Sam & I basically met on Myspace (if you can remember that site). That also just dated us, and made me feel super old. Moving on!

 Most importantly, more than 1 in 5 people asked a friend to help them create their dating profile.

30% of women and 16% of men used the phone-a-friend option to help them write their bios and select their pics. That's where we come in. (hello marketing degree at work!) You can call us Cupid.

With Valentine's Day on the horizon, why not give your online profile a little makeover, and stock up on some new pictures you'll be proud to post? Even if you get plenty of matches on the apps already, a little photographic V-Day treat will boost your confidence, and we all need more confidence, right?

We can help you achieve the perfect vibe for your profile pictures, guaranteed to attract the right swipes and get you that much closer to your soulmate. Think we're kidding? Check out Kevin's urban photoshoot, or Bri's dreamy, boho reemergence of self. These photos will be the first thing the future love of your life sees about you, before they even get the pleasure of meeting you in person, so why not make them count?

We don't have a statistic for how professional photography will help your dating profile or your love life, but we can confidently say that you will be 100% more successful than all of the ab-selfie shots taken in gym bathroom mirrors combined. Just sayin’.

So, let’s start the year off right and treat yo' self to some new self portraits.  You can buy a session at the link below!
