Dimitri Williams Photography, LLC - FAQs




Why did you get into photography?

I’ve always been amazed by artist, whether they were musicians, painters, photographers, graffiti artist etc. The creativity that they unleash in their medium astounds me. Since purchasing my first Digital SLR 3 years ago, I have not looked back. Photography allows me to be free. Free to express my creative visions through the mechanics of my camera, lens and post production methods. When I step behind my camera and stare through the viewfinder at that very moment…I AM FREE!!!


What type of equipment do you use?

My equipment consists of Canon & Sigma products. I have both a full frame (primary) and crop sensor DLSR bodies along with a variety of lenses to get the job done.

Next question.


How early should I book my shoot?

For weddings, at least six months in advance. For portrait or fashion shoots, let’s discuss our availability together to come up with the best date.


I want to see the proofs. When Can I see them?

Proofs will be available online within 10 days. However, i'm such an addict you will probably receive it within 5 days :)


How long will the proofs be available for ordering?

Your online gallery will be active for 60 days after posting.


Do I order my prints through you?

Yes, you can order your prints through me. I have a trusted vendor who I’ve worked with for the past 2 years. The prints and colors are just as I upload them and have not had any issues thus far (knock on wood). They also offer drop shipping directly to your doorstep.


“What if” I am not satisfied with any of the pictures you took?

Hopefully that will not happen. However, if you are unsatisfied, we can make arrangements for a reshoot.


I want my portraits done outside. What if it rains on the day of our shoot?

We will reschedule for the earliest day possible for both of our schedules.


Do you offer Hair/Make-up services?

Absolutely, Donnie Whitsett of IC Beauty is one of the best and you deserve just that. But, it’ll cost you.


What is required to book a session with DWP?

A 50% non-refundable deposit is required in order for you to reserve your date and time. The remainder is due the day of shoot.

For weddings – same rules apply with the exception that the remaining balance is due 3 weeks prior to your BIG DAY!
