What is a DateSpot Photo Shoot?

Let's be honest -- profile photos are the main factor in who singles decide to meet. Your photos should be flattering, recent, and representative of how you actually look. If they're not, DateSpot is here to help! We’ve done the work in vetting top professional portrait photographers across the U.S. and chosen our favorites for you.

Our partner photographers know what types of photos to capture specifically for dating purposes and how to make you feel comfortable and confident on the other side of the lens.

The shoot can be at your home, at a mutually chosen location outdoors, or in a studio, based on your preference and each photographer's specialty and comfort level.

"Almost everyone could use better profile photo sets. I'm brutally honest about photos, because your potential matches are just as critical, even if they don't realize it."
