Hey. Get the lowdown on our frequently asked questions.

FAQs

Are you feeling out of your comfort zone yet? Hey yes, I feel you. I hate having my photo taken, that’s why I’m behind the lens! All our photographers feel the same but that means they understand how you feel. This is all a bit unusual, isn’t it, so I’m sure you have some questions. We thought we’d get in there first & give you the skinny on all the details. It’s all cool though as we send all our clients a Welcome Pack once they get booked in, which goes into much more detail about how the shoot works. Plus, your photographer will guide you through the whole adventure so there is nothing for you to worry about.

Is this for me?

 
  • I really hate having my photo taken. Can you help?

    We haven’t come across many people who say “oooh yes, I love having my photo taken!” so you’re not alone in thinking that. But the way we work is that we wander around on the shoot, chewing the fat and getting to know each other and your photographer will work around you & will do their utmost to put you at your ease and get some great shots. But please bear this in mind, the more you put into the shoot, the more you will get out of it when you get your final photos back. Stepping outside your comfort zone is where the magic happens.

  • Why Hey Saturday over other photographers or agencies?

    Saskia Nelson, our head honcho, has been credited by Time magazine and renowned photographer Martin Parr for kickstarting a new genre of photography – dating photography. Yes, we are the home of dating photography. She is the leading dating photo industry expert in the UK, Europe and US and has won awards in both the UK and Europe for her work. She is a huge fan of online dating having done it for 8 years until finding her forever guy on Guardian Soulmates. She believes everyone can find love online, they just need the right tools and the right mindset.

  • I hate what I look like in photos. Can you still help me?

    OK, the quick answer is that we can help some people but others we can’t.

    So – if you’ve never had a decent photo taken of yourself and they all tend to be ones that your friends have taken of you and then uploaded to Facebook without even bothering to check out what you look like, then chances are that yes indeed we can help. We are professionals and know how to take a good, flattering, relaxed photo. More importantly we know how to edit out and delete the bad photos!

    If, however, you literally just don’t like how you look in photos no matter how good the photo or the photographer is, then we probably can’t help with that. We will most likely think you look amazing in the photos and would be puzzled that you didn’t think so too.

    I hope this helps. Honesty is important to us.

  • Do you book shoots outside Birmingham, Brighton, Edinburgh, London, Los Angeles, Manchester and New York City?

    We’ve recently launched our Hey Saturday dating photo adventures in Bristol and Los Angeles, which we’re really happy about. Next stop Liverpool in Spring 2019. We’re coming for you…..

  • Do you always shoot outdoors, even in winter?

    Yes, at the moment we just shoot outdoor photography. We believe it fits our brand really well as we can create natural, relaxed, unposed shots – very important for dating photos. Plus, we can keep the costs down – the streets and parks are free after all.

    Winter is actually one of our busiest periods – so yes we work all throughout the winter months. We do tend to work with more triathletes, Iron Man & Tough Mudder competitors though at this time of year, we’ve noticed, lol. However, if it gets too cold or it looks like rain or sleet, you can reschedule. Please see our FAQ regarding the weather. 

  • Any chance I can keep hold of the RAW or unedited jpeg files?

    We don’t get asked this question very often but every now and again it pops up and so we wanted to share our policy on it. The answer is no, sorry, we don’t share RAW or unedited jpeg files. There are a number of reasons for this, but from a customer point of view we believe that you are paying for a finished product – which includes the editing/light retouching of each image. The images captured in camera represents only about 50% of the work we do to create our final image. Our photographers are just as passionate about the time they spend in the digital darkroom finalising the images as they are about the time spent out on shoots, it’s a hugely important and integral part of their creative process. To hand over RAW files would be akin to asking an artist to hand over an unfinished painting along with a paint brush and some paint or asking a chef to hand over the ingredients for an amazing dish for you to put together yourself. Thanks for your understanding.

  • Who will be there on the day?

    Your photographer will be working one-on-one with you on the day. Each client is booked in at separate times so you won’t cross paths with another client. Sometimes one of our lovely photography assistants will attend the shoot to help your photographer but other than that, it’s just you and your photographer.

  • Do you back everything up?

    We sure do but we only keep clients’ work for a few weeks after we have delivered your photos (due to space issues) so please make sure you store your photos somewhere safe. Dropbox or an external hard drive would be perfect.

  • I have problems getting around. Can you still help me?

    We certainly hope so. Please feel free to talk us through any concerns you have at the time of booking and together we can find a location that works.

OK, I’m up for it but I’m worried about…

 
  • What happens if I want to postpone or cancel my photoshoot?

    Please read point 9 of our Terms to get the full story but to sum up:

    Rescheduling

    Please do give us as much notice as you can and we will do what we can to accommodate you. Please note though, that any on-the-day rescheduling will result in a 50% surcharge fee for rebooking to respect and reflect the photographer’s time and loss of earnings for that day.

    Cancellations

    We offer full refunds right up to 48 hours before the day of your shoot, between 24 and 48 hours, we can offer a 50% refund and for less that 24 hours notice before the shoot day itself, we will retain all fees.

  • As the shoots are outdoors, where can I change?

    Ahh the glamour behind the scenes! We choose shoot locations where you can access clean, spacious public toilets or cafe toilets.

    During a pandemic, this is not always possible though.
    It’s worth noting that most of our shots tend to be from the waist up as those work best for dating photos.
    Yes, you will need one or two full body shots but the rest are taken from the waist up so when you’re planning your outfits, focus mainly on the top half and how you might change up your look quite easily without relying on full outfit changes.
    Layering is a great way to do this. For example you might arrive in a leather jacket and switch to another jacket. Perhaps some shots without the jacket just in a jumper. Then you could remove the jumper for some shots in a shirt or tshirt. Then add another jumper on top etc etc.
    With a little planning ahead, you can easily create a variety of different looks on the go.
  • As we’re in public, how do we avoid people staring?

    I think we have to face facts: we will be in public doing something that you don’t see everyday so some people might take a gander. However, I think it’s important to remember that we will just be something these people think about for approximately 1 to 2 minutes before going back to their own thoughts. These photos, however, are helping you find love, something that is pretty important to you. I always say to my clients that for the time that we are together, we are in our own little world, focusing on getting some great shots of you. No one else really matters during that short period of time, especially people you are never going to see again. And if you do end up being recognised by someone you know, we’ll just say this shoot is for your Observer article that’s coming out soon.

  • What happens if it looks like rain or snow at the time of my shoot?

    I love the British & NYC weather & their crazy, unpredictable seasons but I have to admit it can occasionally play havoc with planning outdoor photo shoots. If the forecast predicts relentless and/or heavy rain/drizzle/snow/hail at the time of your shoot then your photographer will contact you the day before to see if you would like to reschedule. Also, if it looks like it’s going to be freezing cold at the time of your shoot making you uncomfortable, then that’s OK too,  As long as you let us know by 6pm the day before your shoot, you’re free to reschedule

  • I’m over 60, does age matter?

    Oh heck no! We love working with clients of all ages. Our oldest client to date has been 76 years young. (And she’s showcased on our website no less)

  • How does payment work?

    We ask clients to pay us in full at the time of booking so that we get all the boring admin stuff out the way and can then focus on the much more important and fun business of getting you some great shots.

  • Do you have Terms and Conditions? If so, where can I read them.

    We may be all about the fun and good times but rest assured we are thoroughly professional in all we do behind the scenes. You can read through our Terms right here.

  • What’s your complaints process, just so I know?

    We want to make sure you are completely happy with the service we give you. If you are not, we will do everything we can to deal with any problems. We will:
    – treat you fairly
    – respond promptly
    – investigate your complaint impartially

    How to complain
    You can complain however you feel comfortable: by letter, by e-mail or by speaking to Saskia Nelson, the Director of Hey Saturday.
    Her contact details are:
    Email: [email protected]

    What happens when you complain
    These are our main steps:
    We will try to sort it out within two working days of receiving your complaint. We will look into what has happened and will try and resolve it as soon as possible. If we have been able to sort things out straight away, we will write or call you to confirm.

    If we need more time to look into what happened, Saskia will email you promptly to acknowledge your concerns and will tell you what happens next.
    We will look carefully into the issues you raise. We might get in touch to make sure we understand your concerns and get more details. If you have any information that is relevant please send it to Saskia.

    We will be in touch to let you know the outcome of your complaint as soon as we can and within 8 weeks of getting your complaint

  • When will the photos be ready?

    Our photographers are passionate about their work. And they value the time spent in the digital darkroom just as much as the time spent out on location with you. We shoot our images on large RAW files to ensure we’re working to the highest quality and then edit and lightly retouch them in Photoshop/Lightroom, which makes this process quite slow. It usually takes up to 7 days but may take longer at exceptionally busy periods but please bear with us. We are committed to providing images in the best quality for digital and we recognise that the time spent editing and lightly retouching the images is an important part of the creative process so we want to take our time and appreciate your patience on this. You may find some photographers turn their photos round in super quick time, which could be because they aren’t very busy, or they don’t take as much time and care processing their images or, in some cases, the RAW files are being sent off to India for editing and retouching (if you check the small print). Our photographers are talented artists and would never want someone else to edit their photos for them. Thanks for valuing our process.

Cool, that sounds good. Now, how do I rock this thing?

 
  • Any recommendations for what I should wear?

    We send out a Welcome Pack at the time of booking, which goes into a bit of detail about what you might like to wear and what works well. But, I always recommend wearing clothes that make you feel confident and attractive, basically ‘you on a good day‘. Just to be clear, you will need to bring your own clothes and accessories to the shoot. We’re creating authentic photos of you and to do that, you need to wear your own clothes.

    Avoid wearing anything too tight or too baggy as these don’t work well on camera. So anything which gives  you a flattering shape works best.

    We love a bit of colour pop, as you can probably tell from the photos, so if possible do try and bring at least one item of clothing that’s a bright colour.

    Most of our shots are from the waist up or shoulders up so you don’t need to worry too much about the bottom half. This makes it much easier to get lots of different looks without bringing too much with you. Layering is always good: jackets, jumpers, shirts, t-shirts can be mixed and matched really easily.

    Women can also use accessories to change a look. It’s amazing how a change of lipstick and/or hair style mixes things up.

    And check out our recent blog post on this, right here.

  • Do I need to bring anything to my shoot?

    Yes, you will need to bring the outfit(s) that you want to wear. Hey Saturday aims to create authentic photos that represent the real you and in order to do that, you will need to wear your own clothes. Please check out our answer to the question, ‘Any recommendations for what I should wear?’ for ideas on what outfits to bring. 

    If you want, we recommend that you also bring a couple of props with you as they give you something to do with your hands and they’re a great way to tell people a bit more about your personality – depending on what you choose. Books, headphones, bikes, cameras, hats, coffee cups, newspapers, magazines, yoga mats etc all make great props.

    Dogs tend to be a lot more problematic but we have made them work too!

  • How can I express my personal style?

    Here’s a blog post I wrote earlier to help you with this. Or you can sign up below for our free eBook “8 Simple Steps to Transform your Dating Profile Photos”

Great online dating photographers are focused on human experience, rather than the size of our lenses.

Yeah… I’d go as far to say, we view our photoshoots as an emotional journey with a physical output more than anything else.

We want to help you let people in and get a better sense of who you are… the real you, of course, (in reply to a comment I got yesterday), if your photos are going to be meaningful, in any way.

When you can bring your whole self to the shoot, it’s kind of magic, really. When you can craft images that tell stories about who you are, it’s powerful and empowering, because when stories are told, meaning is made.

How you show up for your profile pictures matters. The energy you show up with for your photoshoot, is the same energy that online daters can see and feel when they look at your profile pictures.

And yes, you can absolutely see and feel energy in pictures. You can see if someone is happy, dejected or confident, for example.

Confidence is energy. It’s not a ‘trait’ that you either are or aren’t, it’s a state. Like happiness, sadness & joy, it’s an energy you can tap into.

To create the most attractive and magnetic profile pictures, tap into the energy you want to see in your photos.

But how?

Get excited about how these profile pictures are going to open up doors, connect you to all kinds of interesting people, potentially lead to something so good, it’s life-changing.

Harness these positive kind of thoughts and embody them through your breathing, through smiling and laughing, through your body language. You know how smiling makes you feel happy and standing in a power pose makes you feel more confident? Yes 🙌🏽 that.

Your body language in your pictures communicates a lot about your energy and vibe.

Include things you really love in your photoshoot. You might wear something you love, go somewhere you love, hold something you love or, even better, get in flow and do something you love.

Including things that spark joy will impact your body language and your whole vibe.

You are as hot as you think you are.

I love this.

When I was told this, back when I was online dating, I have to say it was a bit of a game changer. Your first instinct is to think, ‘Wait, what?’.

But then I thought back to people I’d met in my (very) long and varied dating life... and how my first impressions of their attractiveness could wildly change as soon as I started engaging with them.

That’s because I was seeing them as they see themselves.

Self-love levels the playing field. You don’t have to be the hottest person in the room to be the hottest person in the room... you just have to THINK you are.

Wow, I love that. It means being attractive, magnetic, desired is within all of us. We just gotta dig deep and love ourselves. No way round it.

Your vibe reflects the way you see yourself and cues others to respond accordingly.

I’m just getting into the Law of Attraction and figuring out how to raise my vibrations, which builds on this. And it’s so relevant to dating, I’ve got a feeling I’m gonna be sharing my learnings on here soon.

Anyone got any recommendations of people I can follow who are talking about vibrating higher? Please share 🙏🏽

I’m ready to vibe higher. Are you?

Your dating app profile ain’t the place to blend in. I know we all want to belong and fit in. But... this isn’t the time.

So many profiles are literally copy cats of each other. It’s sooo boring. Especially given the fact we’re all so different & amazing once you get to know us.

Take a risk. Reveal something meaningful about yourself in your profile. Write down all the things that make you stand out from others and then choose a couple of those to reveal in your profile photos.

People are gonna stare.
Make it worth their while.

This message makes my heart do little backflips. I love that this client felt seen by Nicole and was able to express her best self.

And I love that she took the time to share her gratitude with me and Nicole.

I have a strong feeling that when this client finds love, it’s going to be pretty special.

💛 Very exciting 💛

I’m sharing my face because we have a bunch of new followers, yay hi there, and also because my jumper is very on brand and that’s kind of what I wanted to talk about today.

In your profile pics, your clothes are saying a lot more about you than you might think.

Our clothes are telling people a lot about our lifestyle, our social status, our personality and our vibe ... oh yeah and in my case, my job!

So what do you want your clothes to say about you? That you’re cool, confident, nerdish, feminine, comfortable, stylish, independent, fashionable, glam, extrovert, etc?

By choosing your clothes with intention, you can reveal elements of your personality that might otherwise not come across easily in your pictures.

And our clothes choices actually have more power than we think.

The psychologist, Dr Jennifer Baumgartner (a total expert on this stuff), says,

‘You can use your wardrobe to change how other people perceive you, and even more importantly - how you see yourself’.

I’ve shared that before but I love it so much. This is that moment when the outfit you put on makes you feel invincible & unstoppable. Perfect for a photoshoot or some first date action.

Lots of photoshoots coming up this bank holiday weekend, so this is your reminder to prep your outfits with intention.

This is big-ass Hey Saturday energy right here...

‘Shoot your shot’ is:

🎯 to let go of your pride & pursue someone you’re into;

🎯 to be brave & have the audacity to do something that might be embarrassing;

🎯 to do, say or claim a thing that is potentially outside of your range of abilities.

This is the kinda energy that works so well on dating photoshoots & online dating.

People out there, living their best lives, willing to shoot their shot.

Nah, I don’t mean that kind of suck😆

I mean dare to be real. Dare to be vulnerable. Dare to try something different. Dare to date someone different. Dare to put yourself out there. Dare to dance on your dating photoshoot. Dare to mess up. Dare to stand out on your dating profile. Dare to be disliked by some.

I think it was Kurt Vonnegut who said, ‘How embarrassing to be human’.

Well quite!

But go suck, I dare you!

At the end of that lies adventure, mayhem, great profile pics and, with a little bit of luck, authentic love.

One of the best gifts you can give yourself? Letting go of what other people think about you.

Most of us worry too much about what others think to the point that we are far too inhibited and far less spontaneous and joyful than we could be.

Truth is (studies show), we consistently overestimate just how much - and how badly - others think about our failings.

Problem is, giving fewer fucks is super hard, we are such a social species.

We care so much about others because our happiness depends on the quality of our relationships. We need people and we want to be in their good books so that we can belong, fit in & nurture good relationships with them.

While a certain amount of it is healthy, too much is not. But what can you do to put the breaks on?

Let’s imagine you’re on a dating photoshoot but you can’t stop worrying about what random people in the street are thinking.

In reality, you know it really doesn’t matter what those people think. You don’t know them from Adam. And your photos... well they might just help you transform your love life, right, so they’re kind of important.

But knowing that doesn’t stop you feeling embarrassed.

Here’s one thing you could try. A moment of mindfulness.

Try six deep breaths in and out, with your photographer, feeling how the air enters and leaves your body and how your feet are connected to the ground.

At the end of this lies potential for even greater profile pics.

You know when you connect online with someone new, but you just know straightaway that you’re going to get on really well? Yeah that.

This is Dillion. He invited me on his dating podcast, @truthaboutdating, the other day and the episode has just dropped (link in his bio).

We chatted about the importance of vibe, colour, confidence, being authentic, body language & much more.

Give it a listen 🎧 and check out his other episodes. Thanks for having me, Dillion, I really enjoyed chatting & sharing dating photo tips.

If you’re thinking about creating some new dating profile pics, here’s some homework to help you prepare. Take a moment to ask yourself how you’d want to show up if you knew the love of your life was going to see these photos.

Photos, when created intentionally, are such a powerful tool for communicating who you are.

Plan to create photos that take people on a whistle stop tour of your vibe, your passions, your personality and your strengths.

You’ll find that you’re more easily able to connect with all and any ideal soulmates who come across your profile.

Don’t forget to keep it real. As real as you feel able.

Great photos attract attention. Authentic ones keep it.

On dating apps, success is often determined by a split-second decision made after glimpsing, sometimes, just one photo. You gotta make sure every photo is an amazing one.

Here’s a secret hack, not many people know. Open, expansive body language in photos is crazy attractive, drawing the right kind of attention online.

This is backed by science actually - not just your friendly dating photo expert 😉

For those of you who love the science bit, academic researchers found that outstretched limbs increase attractiveness for all genders - but guys in particular. It suggests dominance for guys and confidence for guys and women.

With this in mind, make sure you take up space in your photos! Own it! Do some power poses to get in the mood. Throw your shoulders back. Fling your arms out. Have your hands spread out. Have fun experimenting.

No crossed arms or hunching over on our watch!

Be the star of every single shot. You only get 5 to 6 shots, you need to make sure all of them are doing the heavy lifting for you.

What really matters to you in life? What’s important to you?

Showing up authentically on your dating photoshoot and in your dating life is the biggest gift you can give yourself.

It enables you to meet and connect with people on a deeper level. Imagine - no pretence and no games 🙌🏽

And it all starts with knowing yourself better.

I reckon a good starting place is writing out a list of all the things in life that are important to you.

We encourage our clients to do this ahead of their dating photoshoots.

It helps you get to the heart of what you want out of life, what you want out of your love life.

Knowing ourselves is a life-long process but it’s so good to check in on ourselves often, especially when we’re starting big things like online dating.

And by taking the time to think about it and let us, your photographers know, it helps us more easily create dating profile pictures that represent what you stand for. What you’re about. What makes you unique and special.

On my List of Stuff I Care About, I have:
- being creative
- keep on learning & growing
- love & connection
- being physically active
- helping people
- finding peace in nature

My dating profile pictures might then include me taking photos or painting, reading a self-help book or studying, walking or meditating in nature. I might wear my jumper with the word ‘love’ on it. I might be drinking tea in front of a cafe with friends (who aren’t actually in the pic). When planning your shoot, your list acts as a guide to make sure you’re telling people something meaningful about you.

✨What’s on your list?
