L. David Likes Photography FAQ
Glad to answer any quick questions so call us.
We do a no-obligation phone call answering questions about your portrait photography needs. We can discuss the day, location and clothing for your best look in pictures. Also at this time we will explain our pricing and talk about products that we offer. You can also send us an email at email@example.com with questions and/or a good time to call you as well.
We are an on-location specialist and can visit your location prior to the photo shoot
Because we create custom art pieces for you, it's best to talk over the phone or in person. It is also helpful to meet in person to look through samples and solidify ideas, discuss prices, clothing and locations. There is no obligation for us to drive to your location. This also helps us to determine how much of the natural surroundings, either inside your home, or outside will be used in the photography.
We can create portraits anywhere
As we carry studio style lights and background equipment with us (depending on the lighting and background location), we can create portraits anywhere as we have had years of experience and training in doing so. You can count on us to capture your family's legacy.
Convenient Viewing and Ordering Session Option #1
No need to come to us. Typically scheduled a week after the photo session we can set up a conference style call where we share our computer screen (we call it a screen share appointment), showing your images, while we talk to you on the phone. We have special software to help you decide what pictures and products you will want. All decision makers should be present as we plan to take payment at this time.

Convenient Viewing and Ordering Session Option #2
No need to come to us. Order on your on time schedule. Our special phone app (sign up to our email list as we have monthly specials and get it for free! $100. value) allows you to view your images online and also (with a phone data plan) allows you to view your images on your phone for ordering by email. The images are numbered and all that is needed is for you to email us the picture number, product and quantity you would like to purchase. A price list will have been previously emailed to you during your consultation session. Click here to see a client that preferred it this way.
Digital File Licenses
Yes we sell digital files. Ask about our digital file licenses and pricing. We have digital file licenses for sale which basically allow you to use the files based on your needs. We have both low resolution files for use on your phone and for emailing and using on social media. And then we have high resolution files for printing yourself. Both require a license.
We have a wide range of products that will be just right for your needs. From prints to albums to canvas wall enlargements.
We take Mastercard, Visa, American Express and Discovery. Portrait investment levels vary by client based on a number of things like destination and locations, lighting requirements, level of retouching and finished sizes, types of frames, types of coating finishes based on your own personal tastes and needs.
Years ago, we found that packages rarely work for our clients because everyone's needs are so different. So we individually tailor your final collection to you specifically and what you actually want.
If you're shopping around comparing photographer's prices, we won't be the cheapest, but will be one of the best. And won't have to shoot tons of images in hopes of getting something where you look good either. You'll leave the shoot still full of energy knowing you have more variety and even better images than you thought and in less time!
You only buy what you fall in love with. If you need a ballpark price, most invest between $500 and $700. If you have a specific budget we will do our best to meet your needs within our pricing structure.
More specific pricing questions can be answered right over the phone, but a personal meet or phone consultation is always recommended, especially for something really specialized like what we provide. It is helpful to compare options as well.
