You Deserve More than a Selfie


We live in a visual world. First impressions are everything regardless of which dating apps you use. Love is determined by a simple swipe -- left or right. A lot is riding on your photograph. Invest in love, invest in yourself.

Is your profile performing as well as it could?
Are you anxious about getting back out there? 
Are you meeting the caliber of people you would like?
Is your profile cobbled together with a bunch of out of date photos? 

Dating in NYC is hard; increase your odds with great photographs.

Tinder Photography was conceived and created by Charlie Grosso, a professional advertising / documentary photographer with 18 years of experience. Tired of seeing terrible photographs on Tinder, Bumble, OkCupid, Match and other dating sites, she decided to offer her professional expertise to help you create the best online dating profile and find that special someone.

Charlie offers top-level professional photography service to show off your killer smile, those sparkling eyes and that irresistible charm. Images that speak of trust, fun and ease. 

Not in NYC? It's okay. Clients have traveled from Boston, Baltimore, Miami, San Francisco, Los Angeles and as far as London and Paris seeking out her service. Request a session and we will make it work. 





This is your love life. It's important to you and to me. I take abundant care and consideration with each and every client. 

A standard session is 2-2.5 hours. We meet. We talk. We get to know each other a little, much like a date. We build a rapport with each other creating a sense of comfort and ease, important subliminal messages in online dating photos. After an hour inside, we will head out to the streets of Manhattan, searching for the perfect light, that cool location. 

We will have a great time and create a unique portfolio of six to eight images, shot inside and out, portraits and 3/4, that is as unique as you are. A series of beautifully executed photos editorializing you and your life and will help you attract that special someone. 

Tinder Photography is celebrating it's third year. I've gotten tremendous feedback from my clients, more matches, meeting higher caliber people, and love found! I feel fortunate to be a part of their love story and excited to be a part of yours.
