Dallas Dating Photography
It’s Nick from The Match Artist.
If you’re here, you must’ve seen one of our bathroom ads.
First things first... our company vision is to get you out on more quality dates.
We’ve shot with over 500 high value guys just like you, and we love hearing the success stories of people who took photos with us. Before getting into our backstory, I’ll briefly prove it to you.
Shane + I met about 6 years ago. I was a wedding photographer, and he was a software developer. We connected over the idea of working long and late night hours on our businesses.
In 2016, I learned of the concept of facial expression coaching, and it changed how I would shoot forever. To simplify things, every person has facial muscles that connect when they are feeling a certain emotion. When you get in front of a camera, all of these emotions generally will go away. I began to coach Shane and other friends on their expressions to show them to look confident, attractive, and even a bit mischievous. When Shane uploaded these to his Tinder profile, his matches blew up.
A few years later, we’re leading the industry taking photos for CEOs, executives, engineers, and more. Using facial expression coaching, we’re able to capture guys in their element and improve their quality of matches - all leading to more dates.
Unfortunately, those outdated photos won’t cut it anymore if you’re looking to match with the women you actually want to go out with.
Each of our sessions are custom-tailored to you specifically, so it’s difficult to nail down exactly what your shoot will look like until you chat with your photographer. Our Pre-Shoot Questionnaire will help us get to know you. Some of the guys we work with have a number of photographable hobbies to capture, while a number of others don’t - and that’s just fine. Don’t worry if you’re not a podcaster, musician, or avid kayaker - what’s important is capturing you in a variety of elements with confident facial expressions. As far as starting locations, these range from starting at an apartment, house, and hotel. We’re versatile with our shooting ability, so we can make it work just about anywhere! At the bottom, we’ve included some of the best shots from a few sessions for you to see the variety. You might be able to mentally put yourself into a few of the activities/poses.
After booking, you'll do a few things.
- Fill out our questionnaire.
- Book a call with your photographer.
- Review the content in our portal to prepare.
Your photoshoot could go any number of ways, but we want to capture you in your element the best we can.
We need a base location to do the facial expression coaching in the mirror, as well as look through your wardrobe and pick out the best options to shoot in. This could be your apartment, house, or hotel.
After we wrap up the facial expression coaching, we’ll jump into the shots we can do at our base location. This varies depending on the size and what sort of hobbies or interests we can photograph there. These might be shots reading a book on the couch, having a drink on the balcony, making coffee or cocktails, or playing with your dog. If the shoot is at a house, often times, we can get a good chunk, if not all of the shoot done at a sizable house. As long as you switch shirts between each unique shot, we can make the photos look like they weren’t taken on the same day. In the past, we’ve been able to get 15+ shirt changes done at one house.
While we generally won’t be able to do quite as much as if it were a house, we can get a few shots done at the apartment, then move to the ‘clubhouse’ or hangout area of the apartment. Often times, we can stage a cafe looking shot, pool/shuffle board, and a variety of others depending on the complex.
This will be similar to the apartment, except instead of the clubhouse, we’ll use the lobby to get a variety of shots in.
Beyond the Base Location
This will be the time to move to more hobby or interest specific shots that aren’t doable at our initial location. This varies widely between each individual. We could hit the rock climbing gym, go kayaking, hit a cafe, or a few bars.
As far as logistics, our photographers are comfortable running the show and telling you what to do, but are also down to take input on the poses + shoot ideas you have - so feel free to let them know. You’re also welcome to scour our portfolio and save some photos you really like, and we’ll do our best to recreate them. You can view our more thorough portfolio here:
We have three photographers on our team that cover the US and beyond, so we'd love to chat about how we can help fill up your calendar with dates. Book your strategy session below!
Below are a few recent shoots. You’ll get 200-300 edited shots with your booking, but we just selected some of the best from these sessions.
We have a few that cover the whole US, and we only work with world class photographers. Our local Dallas photographer is Shane. He’s shot with a number of high profile celebrities + brands, and he’s brought his talents to The Match Artist.
We don’t want the session to feel forced or even like you’re doing a photoshoot at all. Shane is a master at making it feel fun, as well as shooting photos that are guaranteed to get you results.
