Thanks for the photos, chose a couple & put them on my dating profile & it has already made a massive difference in a few days.

Will definitely recommend you to my friends.

– Ollie

Wow, these photos are just fab. They are just the kind of thing I was looking for; professional but still natural. You really have a unique approach, you were pitch perfect with these. I want to do it again!

Thank you

– Toni

I have a complaint – too much online dating activity to manage! Views/emails much have increased at least five-fold from an early estimation.

Thanks again

– Paul

A month ago I went on my very first date & I still can’t quite believe I’m saying this but there was an immediate connection. It’s very early days but he’s a lovely man & I can only hope it lasts. I’m actually over his age limit but he was scanning & something about your photos of me made him look again & message me. I thought you’d like to know that your photos may have made all the difference.

– Katy

I am absolutely loving the entire online dating experience now. I have no doubt that the photos played the biggest part in me doing so well. Every person that has seen them (both dates & friends) has said that the image of me in the blue coat is like something out of GQ magazine.

– Nilesh

Thank you so much for my photos. I LOVE them!! I really enjoyed working with you. I had such a fun day & you really put me at my ease in front of the camera. Thank you once again, I’ll definitely recommend you to all my friends.

– Beccy

Just thought I would give you some instant feedback on how good and awesome Polly & Hey Saturday are! So I downloaded my chosen photos around 10:30am yesterday - just over 24 hours ago. With my old photos I would be lucky to get 1 or maybe at a stretch 2 matches a week on Bumble & Match, but in the last 24 hours I have had close to 20 and they are all really decent matches too, all my type and top drawer!!

Anyway just wanted to say great job and fantastic service, everyone should have this done - what a difference a day makes!! I will definitely be recommending you to all my single friends!!

Wowwwwwwww! Kate and Saskia thank you so much for my fantastic photos. Kate you made me feel really comfortable on the day, putting up with all my crazy props from pineapples on my head to belly dancing attire! And you got what I was looking for - a fantastic mix of full body shot, medium and close up shots. I would give you another hug if I could. I had a hard time choosing my best 10 but I've finally chosen the ones I like best. It's been absolutely worth the wait. Thanks again.

best dating photos

I was actually just thinking about you as it was 2 years ago since our Hey Saturday photo shoot... the photos were fabulous, and I have had a wonderful journey since then. I used the photos on the Guardian Soulmates website (I think you recommended it). The dating was great, and eventually I met a fabulous lady (who is an ex model herself). We are truly in love and so very happy, we have literally just got engaged and told our children tonight... they are all very excited and are planning the big day for next year.

The photos and the dating has really been a success story for me, so my sincere thanks for helping me on my way.

I'm hoping all is good with you and that your business is going well.. I often promote your services to my single friends!

– David

And here's what the relationship & dating experts are saying about us

best dating profile photos

Charreah Jackson, international life, relationship coach & lifestyle & relationship editor at Essence magazine

“It was a dream to be photographed by Saskia! I arrived from New York with my fingers crossed that she would take me as a client. In about an hour she had walked me around South Bank and found the perfect spots for gorgeous shots. She brought out my best self and her pictures are my favorite images of me. Do yourself a favour and get a session with Saskia’s team!”

James Preece, the UK’s top Celebrity Dating Expert and Dating Coach.

"As a Dating Coach, I know the importance of great photographs. If you don't have good photos then you are never going to be noticed or attract the people you like. That's why I always send my clients straight to Saskia. Her photos make the profiles "pop" and stand out from the competition. Even my most nervous single have come back with awesome shots, boosting their confidence and ensuring they have more messages than they ever dreamed of."

Head here to read more...

Demetrius Figueroa, founder, editor & writer at A Mighty Love, NYC

"There’s a reason I’m smiling in so many of these photos and it’s because Saskia does an incredible job at making people, especially someone like me who is very awkward when taking photos, feel at ease. I feel like even saying that is an understatement... Saskia genuinely has a gift at not only photography, but making people comfortable. I went from nervous fidgeting to confident posing at the drop of a hat. None of those smiles were forced, I was genuinely having a good time. That ease made me comfortable, made me feel confident, and I think it shows in my photos.

Laura Yates, relationship coach, writer, creator & entrepreneur

"I can’t recommend Saskia and her team at Hey Saturday highly enough and given that she’s been featured on the BBC, the Evening Standard, the Telegraph etc and won awards at The Dating Awards, it’s not only me who thinks so!"

cool dating profile photos

Mary Lane, founder of the US blog, New York Cliche

"The Hey Saturday team of Saskia and Audra not only made me feel comfortable and at ease but hot as shit. Breathtakingly gorgeous, frightfully interesting, charming and clever. They fully embraced me and my unique personality, effortlessly and in such a genuine way. Another reason these photos are great, they really got me thinking, Ya know, I am awesome! Who wouldn’t want to date me!?..."

"Whatever form of dating online (or matchmaking) that you’re doing, your profile is exactly the same – it’s all about selling yourself. The hardest part? Getting your smile, personality and character across in a photo. Led by the awesome Saskia Nelson and her team of photographers at Hey Saturday, they are the UK's dedicated dating photography service that is transforming how you look online."

Wait what? If you’re not doing this already, here’s a super simple way to increase the attention you’re attracting online.... by 27% according to @tinder.

As an experiment this week, swap out your leading photo if it doesn’t clearly show all of your face. Swap out pictures of your face that are in profile, half hidden in shadow or by sunglasses, anything like that.

Choose, instead, a good quality, well-lit, smiling close-up of your face and shoulders.

Make sure your smile or laugh is a natural one - you’ll know by checking to make sure your eyes are engaged in the smile too.

They’ll be the tell-tell crinkling of your upper cheeks. This is important to check as people are subconsciously drawn to genuine smiles and put off by fake ones.

And make sure your eyes are looking at the camera. It’s more engaging. Your eyes are the most important part of the photo - it where people look first and subconsciously decide whether you’re trustworthy or not.

OK, let me know how you get on. Oh yes and don’t forget to include bright red somewhere in the shot, if you can, to really maximise the attention you’re attracting to your profile.

Whether you’re aware or not, your clothes are telling people a powerful story about you.

They can reveal things like what mood you’re in, what kind of lifestyle you lead, what you’re into, how much money you might earn and even how you feel about yourself.

Wow, ok. Super revealing. (And also I’m really glad no one has been able to see what I’ve been wearing the last month or so 🙈).

But, that said, there’s evidence to suggest you don’t have to dress how you feel... but how you want to feel. Brilliant!

This means, when you’re heading out for your dating photoshoot and on dates, you can choose clothes with intention. Ones that make you feel sexy, confident, in control, feminine, cool, flirty, formal, informal, comfortable or whatever you want to say about you. Keep it authentic though. The clothes need to feel right, don’t force it.

I love knowing that simply by tweaking your outfit, you can improve your whole mood and uplift your confidence levels 🔥🔥

It’s party time at Hey Saturday HQ 🌿

We have just started a partnership with @onetreeplanted. For every Hey Saturday photoshoot we sell, a tree is planted in Ethiopia.

I’ve finally woken up and realised you can’t build a just and equitable society on a planet that’s been destabilised by human activity.

The fights against climate change and racial injustice are deeply intertwined as marginalised communities are disproportionately impacted by it.

Recently, I’ve fallen in love with trees through my forest bathing practice and they are pretty dang magical at helping to save our planet.

The tree planting project in Ethiopia links environmental restoration with income generation, providing the local community with the knowledge and tools to conserve their land, protect their water supply and create a sustainable, diverse economy for future generations 🙌🏽

*Huge thank you to David Attenborough whose powerful documentary, Our Planet, needs to be seen by everyone. It’s a huge fuck-off wake up call. We’re killing off the planet and marginalised communities are already suffering for it.

💋9 indulgent ways to be your own dang Valentine💋

If you’re single today and feeling it, maybe it’s time to get indulgent and celebrate yourself and your most important relationship ever. If you can be someone who makes YOU happy, that’s literally the most important thing.

Plus, being single is cool af and always worth celebrating when you can. Here are 9 indulgent ways you might celebrate yourself today... give me a shout if you have others 🙌🏽

❤️ Dress up
❤️ Fill your day with positive affirmations spoken out loud to the mirror and then repeated in your head like a background mantra (sounds woo woo, but once you get over that, this is pure awesomeness)
❤️ Go back to bed and indulge in some sweet, sweet self-loving
❤️ Treat yourself to something a bit special (buy yourself a nice present online, something you’ve had your eye on maybe)
❤️ Pick up some flowers for yourself - you’re gonna be home a lot to enjoy them this week
❤️ Take a social media break & focus on doing exactly what you fancy doing
❤️ Take the focus off yourself for a while. Phone your gran, write a letter to an old friend, make a donation to a charity, buy from a black and /or LGBTQ+ owned business or something like that. (Also do that last one whenever you can). Doing something nice for someone else is always a guarantee to make you feel good
❤️ Cook, bake or make exactly what you fancy eating right now, however indulgent
❤️ And my personal favourite- dig out your bike, skateboard, rollerblades or whatever you have lying around that you loved doing as a kid outdoors - head out to the park and celebrate that kid inside, they need letting out to play now and again and today seems like a great day for that...

I noticed we have a lot of new followers so I wanted to say hey & thank you for following & also ask where you’re all from in the world. I’m Saskia, I run Hey Saturday & I’m a Brit currently living in Spain. And you?

I’m so glad you’re here. Hey Saturday loves to help people show up authentically in their dating profile pictures to help them attract more people who resonate with them.

📌 If you want me to check out your current dating app pics and share my thoughts on them, hit me up in my DMs. I’m really up for doing Tinder Photo Surgeries on Live 😆😀

I say this a lot but... Your photoshoot ain’t just a photoshoot... it’s your opportunity to tell people who you are. What you stand for. What makes you special. Why they should date you over everyone else.

Your profile pics should give them an insight into what it’s like to date you. To be in a relationship with you. (The best bits, of course, not the couch-potato, sweat-pant version).

Show them glimpses of what you’re about. What you like to wear. What you’re into. Where you like to hang. How you like to spend your time. Your temperament. If done well, your profile pics can help you attract your tribe, people who resonate with your vibe.

Take a fresh look at your photos next time you log on and check what they are saying about you?

• Leverage Your Points of Difference •

We’ve all seen the cookie-cutter, identical dating app profiles & profile pics. Lots of people write variations of the same thing in their bio and have the group shot, the holiday snap & that pro one taken at their best mate’s wedding two years ago.

In 2021, we’re ready for something different. Different is the key word here. We’re dying to find out what makes you different to all the others. What makes you stand out? What’s your USP? Your secret sauce?

If you’re bold enough to start digging deep and reveal real snippets about who you are, it will pay off. You’ll start attracting people who resonate more deeply with who you are.

Before you capture some new profile pics, take the time to sit down & answer this question honestly:
What is it about you that makes you stand out from others?
Write down as many things as you can. It should cover passions, interests, skills, talents, quirks and anything else that makes you distinctly you. These are your points of difference. Choose the most positive ones and start finding ways to showcase them in your profile photos.

Dating profile pictures that actually reveal elements of your authentic story, are so much more powerful and compelling than regular photos.

This small effort could be the one thing that helps you find your lobster 🦞

I’m finally figuring out that I can meditate & it’s not just a beautiful thing but a powerful thing. I’m still really new to it all so today, I’m very excited to be chatting here on Live to Hannah from @breathelikeabadass, a meditation teacher. She also empowers women to become more successful in life and business through her coaching and yes... meditation plays a key role in this.

I have lots of questions for her including asking about techniques for feeling calm and confident ahead of dating photoshoots and Zoom dates. Want to join?

Oye, yo adoro esta cita 💚 What a cool way with words George has. I can feel some horizontal desires coming on right now, I mean it’s still the weekend...

Also... a little-known dating photo hack is have a dance to a favourite tune either before or during your dating photoshoot to get in a confident headspace, feel good and look relaxed in your profile pics. Works like a charm.... 🎧
