Hey. Creating happy clients since 2013

Praise

Real feedback taken from real client emails. *Please note one or two names may have been changed to protect the innocent, but trust us… all the quotes are 100% real.

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!?..."

Caroline Brealey, award-winning matchmaker, relationship expert & founder of Mutual Attraction

"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."

🔥Looking good starts with feeling good 🔥

I shared my top dating photoshoot tips with Bustle recently.

Next week I’m going Live with a very special guest (more on Monday) to chat small, simple things you can do every week to feel better about yourself. I can’t think of anything more important to focus on right now.

This weekend, I’m going to put on a couple of my favourite deep house tunes (you know, the ones I used to go clubbing to) and dance my heart out. (Movement, check. Happiness, Check. Laughter, check). What small thing are you going to do that will make you feel better about yourself?

Searching for ‘dating app photos’... never silly and always cool as long as Hey Saturday is alive & kicking 🙌🏽

I particularly love this email all the way from a Los Angeles client. Thank you, it means a lot.

What’s your secret sauce? What’s different about you? We really want to know.

But why tho’?
To us, your dating photoshoot is more than just a photoshoot. It’s your opportunity to tell people who you are and what you’re made of.

It’s your chance to show people why they should date you over others.

And.... when done well, with intention...helps you to attract your ideal ‘audience’ more easily.

And that’s something we can totally get on board with🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽

••• Why do you need to express your personal brand in your dating profile pictures? ••••

Hmm good question, Sask 🤔

Still reading? Yay. So yes expressing your personal brand in your photos is a way of shaping what people think about you when they see your profile online.

It’s a way of showing people why they should choose to connect with you over others.

A bit of thought and intention up front when creating your photos can lead to more ... and better ... connections with people who share your vibe. Sounds good, right.

In 2021, we’re shifting our focus to help our clients bring more focus to figuring out & sharing their personal brand in their pictures.

Coming for ya 2021 💪🏽

How you present yourself to the world matters. How you present yourself on your dating profile matters even more.

We are going all out to help them to pique people’s interest & increase engagement with their dating app profile. More importantly, it’s going to be fun. Our photoshoots are an adventure not a chore 🔥🔥

Our photoshoots are more than just a photoshoot. They’re more than just a massive confidence boost. They’re a way to help you connect more easily with people you resonate with online. And that’s a pretty cool thing. This client was so happy with his Hey Saturday experience that I was properly moved by the emails he sent me afterwards. This is the end of the last one he sent 💛

Huge shout out to Rachel - Rachel, this client is one of yours 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 thank youuuu for creating another happy person in my life.

Today’s love letter was written to Lauren who massively boosted this client’s confidence in her 60th year 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 Brava Lauren, this is such a fantastic feedback note.

We love working with our older clients & one of our oldest clients at age 76 is featured on our homepage. You should check it out, it’s one of my favourite Hey Saturday pics (& it was shot by the awesome Polly).

Whatever age you are, we’ll go out of our way to welcome you and help you relax into your shoot. A fun, confidence-boosting experience awaits.

+++ Looking good starts with feeling good +++

I shared this tip with Bustle. I’m getting into radical kindness now actually, which says before you can show up with kindness for anyone else, you need to show up - big time - for yourself. Then you show up for others and then you show up for the wider world.

But it’s easy to forget that first step - showing up for yourself.

“If your compassion does not include yourself, it is incomplete.” ~ Jack Kornfield

Look after yourself, feel good, look good.

And also be kind to others 💚

I’ve received a lot of client ‘love letters’ this year but this particular client has written to me personally a few times now to tell me what his Hey Saturday photoshoot meant to him. I am always so touched to get good feedback but I think this client has given me the most feels ever. A huge shout out to Rachel for creating such an amazing experience for him. Our photographers are seriously the coolest. This is a snippet of what he sent to Rachel after his shoot. My heart ❤️❤️ Thank you Rachel ❤️❤️

There’s still time to DM me your questions for Sarah Gilfillan of @sartorialab for today’s live. Sarah is one of my favourite people I’ve met through Hey Saturday so I’m looking forward to this. See you there? I’ll post it later for anyone who’s into it, as I know it’s hard to catch stuff live.
