Hello, I'm Darnell Vennie...
photographer, husband to my lovely wife Rësa (picture above of us taken by photographer Aaron Kohns), and father to a wonderful daughter, Brighton. We reside in the Queen City, Charlotte, NC. We also travel to Virginia & Maryland on a regular basis to photograph and visit family.
Photography has been a passion since my highschool years. While pursuing a degree in graphic communications, I worked as a studio portrait photographer, before eventually starting my own business. I've worked full-time as a photographer for the past 13 years, having been published in various publications, Time Magazine, USA Today, and lead photographer for The Colonial Williamsburg Trend & Tradition Magazine.
Today, I also serve as official college photographer for Central Piedmont here in Charlotte, covering all of their marketing & branding needs, special events, all while documenting the stories of some amazing students. It all comes back to capturing and telling a story, whether that's preserving the story of your wedding day, or highlighting your brand and vision.
We also provide event documentary photography and videography services for dynamic advertising and marketing campaigns for local businesses, universities, and non-profit organizations.
“Darnell was recommended to us by a very good friend of my husband and me. We found ourselves in a bind with seeking out great quality service for a price point that would fit our small, backyard fall wedding. Darnell was on point and flexible from beginning to end. We conducted our engagement shoot with him and did a full day of photo coverage on the big day (him and his fiancé). They were super professional from beginning to end, highly responsive on the correspondence, patient and produced quality work.”
