The Team

Shane White

Founder

Shane is the founder of a software company and a popular wedding DJ company. Shane’s passion for The Match artist started when Nick shot some photos one night and suggested he uploaded them to Tinder. After many dates later, he had a girlfriend and thought he could be helpful to other guys in search of love and relationships. In addition to being full time at The Match Artist, Shane enjoys piloting his plane, and running every day of the week. He guarantees your experience with The Match Artist will be memorable.

Nick Friesen

Founder / Photographer

Nick ran a wedding and headshot photography company for years. He picked up a camera while studying piano performance in college and fell in love with portraits and facial expression coaching. Outside of coaching guys to look their best in photos, he enjoys coffee, playing piano, and spending time with his two dogs.

Nate

Photographer

Nate has been a professional photographer for over a decade now. He has a longstanding career in helping people gain newfound confidence while showing them a side of themselves they haven't seen before and in their very best light. By having explored a widely diverse aspect of the field he has accumulated over time, not only a vast understanding of creative dynamics and vision, but also directing fundamentals. He always makes the most of every experience and is very effective and strategic while being personable in every sense, making for a great working relationship and report.

Shane

Photographer

Shane describes his photography experience as 'not even knowing how many years, since it's been that long.' He was the lead photographer for musician Marc Rebillet's recent tour and has shot portraits for a number of celebrities. We can't say who (thank you NDAs), but it's pretty notable.

Joe

Born in Hershey, PA, Joe has always loved visual art. He’s lived in several states, a few countries, and loves to travel. When he’s not shooting photos, he enjoys singing karaoke at the local pub, paddle boarding on the river, and enjoying some bubble tea.

Allie makes sure to choose and edit the best photos from your shoot for maximum matches. Outside of assisting The Match Artist, she enjoys improv, hiking, and crossword puzzles.

Casper + Rupe

Dogfishers

At The Match Artist, we believe in honestly portraying yourself, but we believe 'dogfishing' to be acceptable (a photo with a dog you don't own). A few of our photographers have their own pups to get that dog shot the internet is raving about to help you with your online presence.
