Ok So Why David Beckham Photography? The Bottom Line
The Photography Business is constantly changing. Technology reinvents itself daily. Keeping up with the latest lighting techniques, shooting options, and styles takes a photographer dedicated to creating the best experience possible for their clients and someone that is willing to invest into their art and creativity as a full time career. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for your senior. Doesn’t it deserve to be in the hands of someone whose full time job is to stay ahead of all of that? Doesn’t your child deserve better than “good enough”?
David Beckham Photography Isn’t For Everyone. It’s for people who want their photos taken using unmatched skills and techniques by the person with his name on the sign out front. It’s for seniors that want photos that pop because of all the attention paid to detail in posing, lighting and editing. It’s for people that want their senior’s personality captured at a milestone time in their life in a timeless portrait that can be hung on the wall until THEIR children can see it some day. It’s for seniors that want photos to look like them. David Beckham Photography is for people that want the best.
When you look at pricing you are even more confused. “Free session fees”, “Images included”, “Natural Light Photographer”. There are some that have complete packages for $119. On the other end there are some that won’t share their prices until after you have paid the sitting fee. Many studios give you a "price range of what people spend" without sharing their complete prices or the prices of the prints, leaving you shocked at the total price you will feel forced to pay. You may even feel remorse for what you just purchased and it actually takes away from the beauty of the photos and fun of the experience for your senior.
TRANSPARENT PRICING We understand that value is important. Our sessions are reasonably priced and are given to you in a no frills, plain brown wrapping format that allows for an amazing value with superior quality and professionalism. All sessions include a DVD slideshow, a wallet of each finished images and thumbnail sheets of the finished images. The Basic Senior and Simply Unique Sessions even include prints to get you started with your order. The Princess and Splurge sessions include other extras like multiple outfits and locations and professional make-up. You can actually take home your proof package and you can decide on your own time what you want to order without any high pressure sales or gimmicks to get you to purchase more than you really want. We can also sit down and design your perfect print order as well. You will be able to see each print sized and cropped exactly the way you want it.
The prices below keep your budget in mind and let you add anything you want to make your senior’s package perfect. There are four different sessions that allow you to be flexible. There is no minimum print order in the first two sessions and they include your first prints! The print pricing is scaled so that as you purchase more prints, the price of each unit is reduced, rewarding you as you get everything you want to celebrate your young adult’s graduation. If you purchase 60 units of prints you can purchase the released disc images perfect for prints up to 5x7 in size. There is even a package that allows you to purchase the Hi-Res Images, released for reprinting!
If you are comparing prices ask how much a 16x24 Fine Art Print, suitable for framing is. At David Beckham Photography it is as low as $208 plus tax. All of my large prints are in standard sizes so that you can buy stock frames from Michaels or Hobby Lobby and not have to spend a fortune on custom framing. You can also have the convenience of having them framed for you so you can hang it on the wall the day you bring them home. When you compare everything, the value is obvious.
