Where is After Dusk Photography based?
After Dusk Photography is based in Halifax, West Yorkshire.
Who will be my Photographer?
Your photographer will always be Kimberley, so you know you’ll always get the same quality and style that you find on this website, one of After Dusk’s strengths.
How long will the whole session take?
When you arrive you’ll be pampered by the hair and make-up artist for between 1 hour and 1 and a half hours, then you’ll have your photoshoot for the amount of time appropriate for your package. Allow an extra fifteen minutes each side on top of this to make sure you aren’t rushed.
Can I bring someone along?
Absolutely you can, though I must ask that it’s another female over the age of 18. The shoot itself is usually more relaxing and smooth when it’s just myself and you, so I recommend your friend waits in another room whilst we take the photos.
How do I choose which photos I want?
All your fully edited photos will be made available for you to view in your own password protected online gallery.You can choose from there which photos you want from your package and also order any extra photos you might want!
How long will it be before I can see my photos?
That’s something we’ll discuss at your shoot. This all depends on how many shoots I have booked around the time of your shoot, but you’ll never have to wait longer than a month, usually much much less time!
Do I get my deposit back if I cancel?
Unfortunately your deposit covers the costs I have to pay out for your photoshoot, including the hair and make-up artist, so this is non-refundable.
Do I need to bring my own underwear/clothing?
You will need to bring your own underwear and clothing as it’s important you bring well fitting underwear/outfits, this makes all the difference in the photos! Though I do have a large selection of props to help make everything extra special and unique!
Will you help me decide what to buy or bring?
Absolutely! This is all part of your package, help and advice on what to bring or buy to help make your shoot personal. Check out the ‘your shoot’ section for advice on what items to buy for boudoir!
Can I do my own hair and make-up and save on costs?
Many people don’t know how to do camera ready make-up as it’s a lot heavier than normal every day or evening make-up. This is why we have a make-up and hair artist on hand to help ensure you look your best! It’s also a great time for us to have a chat, a drink and for you to be fully pampered before your shoot!
I don’t know how to pose and I feel really nervous about my shoot.
That’s totally normal! I don’t think I’ve ever met someone who isn’t nervous about being photographed – that includes me! I have over seven years of experience working with people who aren’t used to being photographed so I’m very experienced in directing people into a pose, from your toes to your fingertips and helping you feel at ease. I’m yet to work with someone who didn’t end up enjoying their photoshoot!
What is it like to have a shoot with you?
A shoot with me is, most importantly, fun! I want you to enjoy yourself so it’s easy going, relaxed and informal. Your shoot will be unique and individual to you and your tastes. Check out the ‘Why Choose After Dusk’ section for more information!
Are all my images edited?
Yes they are. After your shoot, all your images will be put in your private online gallery and they’ll all be fully edited. Some will have been edited in both black and white and colour, and you’ll see both versions in your gallery. Some may have more creative versions edited too but this depends on the photoshoot.
Will you post my images online?
I will NEVER post your images online without your permission, I completely understand the personal nature of many shoots I do. Many people I work with are more than happy for me to use their pictures on my sites but this is completely optional and I’ll never pressure you.
Do you offer discounts?
I do not offer discounts as I already try to make my prices competitive for the service that I deliver. However some discount may be given for buying multiple extra images on top of your package.
How much skin do I need to bare?
As much or as little as you like! You can be just as sexy and mysterious fully clothed as fully nude, and that choice is completely up to you.
Which package should I buy?
That’s completely your decision. My most popular package is Gold, because you get a great selection of images after with a good saving! Most people who choose the Silver package tend to buy extra images on top of the three beautiful images they already get because they love their photos so much!
I want to book the Platinum Package, how many images will I get?
It can vary, but it will always be a minimum of 20 images, but almost certainly many more!
I want to print out more copies of my photos, can you recommend somewhere good?
Absolutely! It’s very important you get them printed at a good quality place. I can recommend DS Colourlabs online, they are very well prices and very good quality. I can most certainly NOT recommend printing at kiosks you often find in shops, you can get much better quality for better prices at many online printers.
Do you do payment plans?
I do indeed! They involve monthly installments either leading up to your shoot day for a package (the shoot must be paid in full before hand) or installments after your shoot should you want to buy extra images (the balance must be paid in full before the images are given). Feel free to email me to discuss this further.
How can I pay for my shoot?
Payment can be made via bank transfer or cheque. If paying by cheque the money must arrive in the account before your photoshoot so please allow enough time.
