Greeting ALL!

     I wanted to personally introduce myself. I'm a proud father of four beautiful girls and a husband to my wife of ten years. Photography is my passion I mean it has become a part of my daily life and I have no complaints! Doing something I love for a living has been a blessing and my most loved genre of photography would be weddings and engagements. I see it as an honor for a couple to bring you in on one of the most treasured moments of their lives, trusting you to document that moment.


    As beautifully as it once existed, that is a responsibility that I do not take lightly. From our first point of contact, until you're journey down the aisle, we insure we know exactly what our brides and grooms want and expect from our services.


    Here's a fun fact about us. If you haven't already figured it out already DSW PHOTOGRAPHY stands for Darren & Shamakia Williams photography!



Hey Future Brides and Grooms!

   I wanted to personally introduce myself to you. As mentioned before, I'm a mom and wife but I LOVE my passion of photographing couples. My JOY is telling the couple's story and I love taking the pleasure of displaying love between our clients. I love setting the romantic scene and documenting you both in your most loving moments.


     During my years in corporate America, I found myself unhappy with not fulfilling my craft. I wanted to express my creativity on camera and allow to display love amongst couples, family, and loved ones. Once, I realize how much joy photography brought me, I decided to walk away from my day job and pursue my passion in portrait and wedding photography. 

Client Reviews


Janelle & Shea

Simply AMAZING! I used DSW Photography several times and they delivered each time. They were professional, punctual and made me feel extremely comfortable. The quality of the photos were so amazing. I would highly recommend them.


Janae and Symone

Shamakia and Darren was so lovely and produced the most amazing photos from our wedding! We'll look back on these pictures for the rest of our lives and remember how perfectly they captured our special moments and what a pleasure is was to work with them both. Very easy to communicate with, no matter if it was an email, text message, or even a late night phone call, they were always there. They listen to every idea/inspiration my wife and I had and gave me exactly if not more than I wanted. We got married on a Saturday and received our sneak peek photos by the following Wednesday! We were so excited how quickly we were able to see them and share with friends/family who were unable to attend due to the pandemic. I would recommend DSW for all your photography needs! We hope, no scratch that WE WILL definitely be using them again for our anniversary pictures!
