I recommend you have a quick Skype or Facetime call first if you haven't already.
One of my friends who uses Tinder and OkCupid a lot does this. He said he had so many first dates where the girl looked absolutely nothing like her pictures that he now insists on it before meeting.
Not only that but it helps diffuse a lot of the initial meeting awkwardness so when you actually do meet in person, it feels like you've already done this before so it's easier.
It's what my current girlfriend insisted on doing before we met in person (also met on Tinder) and I'm sooo happy she did cause we hit it off so well our first date felt more like a second or third.
Also a good way to filter out axe murderers.
