About Danielle "DZ" Vennard
When it comes to writing I prefer to see myself as passionate about being thorough as opposed to being long winded...here goes: I am married to a pretty cool dude, Dann, who supports anything and everything that I am about but is willing to push me farther than I thought I ever would go. We have a son named Graeme Dennis and a daughter named Zoey Marie. They both keep me on my toes as well as the furry members of our family, Hueco and Mr. Font, both Austrailian Cattle Dogs and Mr. Henry our kitty cat. When I am not "working" you can find me on the local trails running, biking or rock climbing.
I have been an artist all my life, taking after my father who taught painting, drawing, and photography at my high school (Carlisle High School) for 30 years. I went to undergraduate at Kutztown University and received my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. There I had an awesome painting teacher named George Sorrels who encouraged me to apply for graduate school. I ended up attending the University of Delaware for my graduate degree in Master of Fine Arts. While attending UD, I met my husband, Dann. Our second Christmas together he converted me from a film photographer to a digital photographer with my first DSLR (digital single lens reflex) camera (Nikon D70s). The love for the instant image began.
I am a member of the Professional Photographers Association (PPA) and the Southern Chester County Chamber of Commerce (SCCCC).

What is Wedding Photojournalism?
Wedding photojournalism is photographing wedding moments in a documentary style. The images tell the reality in a truthful way with an emotional tie. It is art and reality existing together.
A wedding photojournalist observes and captures once in a lifetime moments that cannot be predicted. A true moment is one in which the subject is so involved in what they are doing that they are unaware of the presence of anyone recording it.
Longer lenses are preferred to create more space between the photographer and their subjects. Natural light is relied upon for as much of the day as technically allowed by the capabilities of the camera. The cameras of choice would be able to produce photographs in low light situations without the use of flash though in extreme situations an added flash could be used to bounce light.
With any wedding there is a time for taking family portraits. A wedding photojournalist does not forsake these historical photographs. The relaxed portraiture will be taken in a timely manner to insure a couple is enjoying as much time as they can with their friends and family.
What is NOT Wedding Photojournalism?
Wedding Photojournalism is not photographing wedding moments in a directive and intrusive style. The images are not staged, recreated or done from an extensive shot list. If a subject is aware of the photographer's presence and acting for the camera it is not a real moment and therefore not wedding photojournalism. Shot lists with many locations for posed portraiture are against the rules of wedding photojournalism. (It also takes a big chunk of time out of living it up with friends and family during the cocktail hour and reception.)
