Hey. Putting the pleasure back into online dating.

About

best uk dating photographer

What the heck is dating photography?

I’m Saskia, the founder of Hey Saturday, and I’ve been credited by Time magazine, the BBC and world-renowned photographer, Martin Parr, for creating the genre of dating photography and I’m recognised as the leading industry expert in the UK, Europe & US on all things dating photo related. Rather than a formal, portrait-style photoshoot, our shoots are more like an adventure with a good friend.

“Hey Saturday helps you create powerful dating profiles by enabling you to visually share the story of who you are. The more stories you can tell with your profile pictures, the more you’ll be able to show people what it’s like to be in a relationship with you.” 

What’s my story?

I spent many years online dating (until meeting my bf of many years on Guardian Soulmates) and spotted a gap in the market for a niche photography business specialising in creating profile photos for online daters.


Can we help you?

We’ve worked with more than 4,000 awesome single people across the UK and US helping them to create a stand out set of portrait photos for their dating profiles enabling them to get out there & reclaim their dating life. So yes, I reckon we can help you too.


 

“Great dating photos attract attention. Authentic ones keep it.

– Saskia Nelson

Do what you love (on camera) is one of my top dating photo tips - as shared with Bustle. Run, cycle, do yoga, skateboard, take your dog for a walk, play the guitar, sketch, dance... do whatever it is you love for authentic, personality-driven shots of you looking happy, relaxed, gorgeous and most like you. These shots are always the coolest ones and the ones that attract people the most to your dating profile.

Our clients have no idea how happy they make me when they send me messages like this. This is literally my favourite thing in the world right now 💓 Shouts out, Nicole, for creating another very happy client.

If you know Hey Saturday but at all, you’ll know we aren’t huge fans of errr group shots. Yo, they suck! Why make people work hard to find you in the pic? Why let them fancy your best mate more? Or worse, why chase them away when they spot that pic of you with your drunken gang of mates back in Ibiza in 2014 when you’d been up for 5 nights straight? The easier you can grab their attention - for the right reasons - the better. The less obstacles you place in their way, the more likely you’ll end up with more dates. Here’s me sharing my no-nonsense - ‘ditch ‘em’ - dating photo advice to British GQ.

🔥 Today’s Big Mood 🔥 Confidence is sexy. Sexier even than just looks. This is such good news as confidence is for everyone - albeit something you have to keep working on. Love that British GQ shared my top dating photo tips last year 🙌🏽

You know I can’t resist a jazz musician quote. I’m just gonna leave this reminder right here, because some days you need to hear it more than others.
