If you’re single in Austin, it can feel like you’re in a two-seater rowboat all alone while everyone else is coupled up. But thanks to dating apps, there are ways to find love even in this city of hookups. The key is a good profile photo that catches the eye of potential matches. And that’s where a professional photographer can help.
Perfect Profile, a new service launched in Austin by the former owner of a modeling agency, helps singles glam up their dating profiles. The service includes a photo session and editing to make the photos look more polished and authentic. It’s available a la carte or in bundles, with free consultations available.
Raya is another app for the snobby set, and it’s often touted as one of the best for finding serious relationships. This exclusive app requires approval by a committee and is known to pair up celebrities. But for the rest of us, it’s just a way to show that you have serious taste (and money).
Loosid is an app for sober connections, and it makes a big difference if you’re not a drinker or are living the sober life. It can be awkward if your first date suggests meeting up at the bar, and this app has you covered with fun prompts to start conversations. The best part is, it also has features that can actually help you with your sobriety.
As more and more people turn to dating apps (and Tinder, Bumble or Hinge) for a date, it’s important to have great photos that catch a potential match’s attention. But it’s not just about five car selfies to make you stand out, but a well-rounded set of pictures that showcase your adventurous, active and interesting self. Enter Perfect Profile, a new service in town launched by the former owner of local modeling agency The Brown Agency that’s designed to glam up your online dating game.
