Introducing Nicole

Nicole, one of our fantastic photographers, has been working with us since the end of August 2014 and has taken to the Hey Saturday brand like a duck to water. When I met her earlier in 2014 on a fashion shoot, I immediately liked her and I loved the way she worked with the models and I knew I would approach her to work for me as soon as the time was right.  Since she has started with us, she has worked with over 200 clients and I’m delighted at the amazing feedback I’m getting from them.

I feel very lucky to have her on my team. She is everything I could hope for in someone working for the business: professional, reliable, confident, independent, bold, fun, funny, great with the clients and a fantastic photographer. Want to know more about this cool girl?  Read on…

Dating photographer

You’re from Germany, so what is it about London that you love so much?

There are so many things I love about London, but I think the biggest part are the people. Everyone is really open and sometimes you will have conversations with complete strangers. That´s something that would not happen in Germany. I also love that it´s so versatile. You´re on a busy High Street with all the big city sounds, but you go into a side street, not even 100 m away and find a small park, no traffic sounds and you wouldn´t believe you´re still in London.

And what do you miss about home?

My family and friends of course. It´s sometimes hard to hear what´s happening in their lives and not being a part of it anymore. My dad’s cooking and driving a car (because I wouldn’t dare to drive here – on the wrong side nonetheless) are on the list of things I miss as well.

What inspired you to pick up a camera?

There wasn´t a specific moment or photo that made me want to be photographer. It was just something that developed over time. I was often out taking photos with a digital camera and loved looking at images wishing I would be able to create these kind of images as well. So I just started reading a lot about photography, got my first DSLR when I was 19 and watched loads of tutorials. Then about 2 years ago I started going to all these workshops and my friends complimented me on my pictures and I felt like I actually have a talent there and could do more with it…

Which photographers are inspiring you right now? 

I love Andy Gotts style as it´s really honest and was really impressed by Dennis Hoppers street photography. Apart from that I follow this photographer on Facebook – Laura Marii. I think she´s from Australia, her photos are breathtaking.

 Who would be your dream client? And why?

I guess Pink would be a great person to take photos of. Partly because I always loved her music and her photos. She seems like a really fun and outgoing person and I´m sure we would have a great time. That´s basically all I would wish for in a client – to be open about having their pictures taken. It´s understandable that they are nervous or maybe even slightly uncomfortable, but as long as they are open about the experience it can be really fun.

As Hey Saturday is all about dating, can I be nosey and ask who would be your dream date?

That´s a tough one. I think it would be great, if we just clicked, you know. If I can talk to the guy about god and the world. I hate awkward silence, when no one knows what to talk about or when you just try too hard and I´m not a fan of small talk, never have been. It just feels unnatural to me and I start saying embarrassing things. Kind of like Baby in Dirty Dancing… (“I carried a watermelon.”)

 What’s your top dating tip?

Be yourself. There is no sense in hiding something or pretending to be someone else. Be proud of who you are and don´t put yourself down

What our clients are saying about her

“I wanted to start online dating but take really terrible pictures: I tend to freeze whenever a camera is aimed at me and have exactly one flattering photo which is about 15 years old and unfortunately not recognizable as me.  I realised I needed a professional photographer if I was going to get any dates but I was terrified of ending up with Vaseline lensed shots where we all have the same pancake makeup and fake-rabbit-fur slippers.  

When I saw Hey Saturday’s website I was immediately impressed: it looked like exactly what I wanted: really natural, beautiful shots, where you can see the personalities of the subjects, but I wasn’t entirely sure if they’d be able to work their magic with me. 

My fears were completely unfounded.  I worked with Nicole and she made the experience so enjoyable.  She was so easy to work with.  It felt like hanging out and chatting to an old friend. The photos she came up with were absolutely amazing: they made me look beautiful and still very me.   I couldn’t believe how many beautiful photos I had to choose from, and when I uploaded my photos onto the dating sites, I had so much interest.   Cannot recommend Nicole and Hey Saturday highly enough.”

Great profile pics attract attention. Authentic ones keep it 🔥 The biggest reason people don’t get second dates, according to Match, is because they look nothing like their profile pics. And yeah, no you aren’t going to be able to win them over on the date with your sparkling personality sadly … because, before they’ve even sat down, they feel deceived by you. And that ain’t a good look on a date. People want relationships with trustworthy people. Don’t blow it. Keep it real.

AI generated dating photos? What do you think? I mean what the f-ck? Don’t get me wrong, I’m fascinated by what’s occurring in the AI creativity space at the moment. AI generated paintings, photographs, songwriting etc. I’m fascinated yeah and kind of a little horrified at the same time, I think. So yeah, for $19 you can head to Photo AI, upload some photos of yourself and they’ll generate a set of dating profile pics. Hurrah, sounds like a bargain. Buuuut … when it comes to dating, well that’s something else entirely. Dating is deeply rooted in the human experience, right. So, IMO, I believe you need that connection between photographer and dater, that beautifully unique human-to-human contact… if you want to create gorgeously authentic profile pics. The word that comes to mind for me when looking at the profile pics in this article is creepy. Creepy AF. But that’s just me. I know I’m likely to biased but…it’ll always be a ‘hell no’ from me.

Ooh yes, love it when our clients show up willing to share their personal brand magic in front of the lens.

Wanna transform your dating life in 30 days? Um… yeah that reel went so much better in my head 😂 Can you tell I’ve had a month off from the ‘gram!? Jeez. Anyways ~ I’ve just shared a blogpost ‘30 Day Challenge Ideas that will Transform your Dating Life’. 30 day challenges can be life-changing …. but really adopting a dating challenge is about allowing yourself to become more playful and experimental with your dating life. The goal here isn’t to find your soulmate. It’s about + throwing yourself into the middle of life + chucking out your rule book + rewriting your dating story + discarding those awful checklists + taking risks + getting ghosted + challenging your expectations + accepting the sting of rejection + showing up as your wonderfully weird self + feeling cherished + getting butterflies Yeah there was no way my menopausal brain was going to remember all that for the reel, so no wonder I went off topic. But I digress… So yes, basically they help you throw yourself into the glorious, messy joy that is life. When it’s couched as a challenge though, you’ll find it’a much easier to accept whatever life throws at you, because it’s ‘just an experiment’.

2022 - you’ve been a trip I’ve said goodbye to both my beloved in-laws ❤️ And a different kind of goodbye to my therapist, after 5 years of working together…although the inner and outer transformation will go on, Richard, I promise. But, alongside the awesomeness of Hey Saturday, it’s also been a wild ride through lots of new and old favourite places from Paris to Los Angeles and it’s provided so many moments of mischievous joy with friends and family, but most of all with my favourite person on the planet who, as of a week ago, I’m lucky enough to call my hubby ❤️ 2023? Heck yeah, I’ll dance to that. #therapyiscool #growthmindset #adventuretime #traveltime #wanderlust #goodtimes #intentionalliving #explorereels #explore #adventures #mindsetmatters #intentionallife #travellife #therapyworks #traveltherapy #lifegoals #lifeisgood #everythingislove #everythingisenergy #everythingiscool #innerwork #innerwisdom #innertransformation #transformative #habloespañol #losangeleslife #parisianstyle

The Two Key Ingredients for a Great Dating Profile 📣 new blog post alert 📣 A new study has just dropped that encourages dating app users to embrace originality when creating their dating profile text. Just as I encourage our clients to visually show how they stand out from others in their profile pictures, this study has backed up what dating experts, like James Preece, have been saying all along too… Lose the generic, cliché-ridden text and share something meaningful instead - like what makes you special/different from everyone else. The researchers attempted to understand what precisely makes for compelling profile text. They found that highly original text tended to contain one or more of the following 5 elements: • Metaphorical expressions (e.g. “I’m a rock-star at cooking curries” vs “I’m a good cook”) • Vivid descriptions & imagery ….. ..

Love this tried and tested hack for our clients who aren’t feeling ‘enough’ the day of their dating photoshoot. The moment they take hold of something that brings them joy - their camera, their yoga mat, their boxing gloves, their paintbrush or whatever it may be - they immediately relax, smile and feel at ease with themselves. I love this moment so much and it creates such great profile pics ✨ All photos taken by US & UK Hey Saturday photographers.
