Pittsburgh Wedding & Portrait Photographer

nice to meet you!

I'm Jenna, a wedding, senior, and family photographer based in Zelienople, PA and serving the greater Pittsburgh area.

Most days (aside from working) you'll find me snuggled up with my pup Rhylan, drinking scalding hot coffee, listening to my current favorite movie soundtrack, or watching a Pixar movie with my husband (we love Ratatouille and Up!). I love llamas, put ketchup on way too many different types of foods, and get a high from finding the perfect gift for a friend, family member, or stranger!


 

My heart behind what I do

Over the years, photography has become a tool I use to encourage those around me. My goal is to create an experience where my clients have the freedom to have fun being themselves and have confidence in who they are in front of the camera.

Your best friend in the world just proposed, and now you're looking for someone to capture the two of you together - maybe for an engagement session, maybe for a wedding, or maybe for both. But why use JHP? We genuinely LOVE hearing your story (and figuring out how to incorporate it into your photos)! Everything from the ring, to the proposal, to the wedding details - we can't get enough! (And if you want to hear our story, click here!).

SENIORS

A REPRESENTATION OF YOU

Why can't senior photos be fun? That's the question I (Jenna) asked myself after my senior photography session 6 years ago. I left feeling not very special and like my photos looked the same as everyone else. Which is why I want to change it for other people. A senior portrait session offers the unique ability to incorporate who you are and what you love into photos that you will love to share on social media and that your mom will love to hang on her walls. Our goal is to have you leave your session feeling like a million bucks.

FAMILIES

FAMILY FUN

What family couldn't use a little more fun together? We view family sessions as a time for families to have an awesome time with each other! We're infamous for having families strike funny poses, tell jokes, and throw leaves at one another! Come prepared to have an awesome time.

my story


I know what it's like to be a bride.

my story


I know what it's like to be a bride.

Flashback to August 14, 2015. It was a bright, hot day – barely a cloud in the sky. To be honest, I could’ve cared less about the weather, whether it rained, snowed, or grew even more humid – I was marrying my best friend, and that’s all that mattered. The day flew by in the blink of an eye. One moment, I was having my hair and makeup done, and the next, I was driving away from my friends and family with my husband. What a wonderful, new word to use to describe my love.

I’ve been in your shoes (mine were flat and lacey). I’ve been the girlfriend who couldn’t wait for my guy to pop the question. I’ve been the fiancé, juggling work, school, family, friends, and wedding planning.

I’ve been the bride, full of emotion and anticipation, walking down the aisle towards my best friend, the love of my life. I’ve known the joy, the struggles, and the eagerness that comes with wedding planning and starting a new life together. I’ve had one of the most important days of my life captured by an incredible photographer and friend, memories that I will cherish every day of my life, and I would be honored to capture those intimate, beautiful moments for you. 

Whether you're a bride, planning a wedding, a senior graduating from high school (I've been in those shoes, too) or a mom hoping to have some photos of your family captured, I'd love to hear more of your story. Send me a message in the "Contact" tab above, and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.

"Jenna is absolutely AMAZING. I can't imagine any aspect of my wedding without her. From the minute I found her, to meeting with her in person, to our engagement photos, to my endless emails and her very speedy, friendly, knowledgeable responses, to her meeting me at a local coffee shop and helping me create a wedding day timeline, to my wedding day itself. Also, can we just take a minute to go back to that day at the coffee shop when Jenna met with me? Yes, this wonderful, talented photographer took an hour and a half out of her extremely busy schedule to buy me coffee and help me create a detailed wedding day timeline. Jenna is the most genuine, thoughtful, positive person. Her passion for both photography and people is very apparent. It was a true joy working with her and her husband, Nick. My husband and I consider ourselves very lucky and blessed that they captured so many special moments for us. I would hire her again in a heartbeat. We're so grateful for everything, Jenna and Nick! We truly can't thank you enough."

"Jenna is absolutely amazing. She was so positive and enthusiastic at our first meeting, we knew she would be the perfect photographer for our wedding - and she was. She was very considerate keeping in touch via email during the planning process, which was the easiest way to keep in touch for us. She was very patient when we were behind planning our reception timeline. The day of, she and her second shooter Sara were fantastic. They were so enthusiastic and encouraging; they made everyone feel so comfortable. People we've spoken to who were at our wedding have been highly complementary of her graciousness as well. And - she shared our photo gallery with us quickly - just before her own wedding (congrats!). The pictures are just what we wanted and more. THANK YOU JENNA!"

"Jenna shot our engagement pictures recently and it was such a wonderful experience. She was so flexible in finding a time that we were available, helped us find a location that was fun and different, and the pictures turned out incredibly. Jenna did such a good job making us feel comfortable in front of the camera and was so enthusiastic about each shot. She asked just enough questions to understand our vision for the pictures so we got exactly what we hoped for, but she also has a fantastic eye and added her experience and input so it was above and beyond what we could have wanted. I cannot say enough good things about Jenna--I would recommend her to anyone for any type of shoot. Her prices are so reasonable and the outcome is consistently beautiful. Not to mention she is one of the sweetest people I know--she will not disappoint."

JESS + MICAH

"Listen. If you pay attention to any vendor review, this needs to be the one. Jenna is nothing short of PHENOMENAL. Her pricing is unbeatable, her quality is FLAWLESS, and her personality is so warm and kind that you will instantly fall in love with her and her work. If you are in the Pittsburgh area and are in need of a  photographer, she is your girl!!!!"

VICTORIA + DONOVAN

"Jenna and her second photographer (and husband, Nick) made our wedding day so much sweeter. It was such a joy working with them and they made what could be an awkward part of our day so much fun. They made sure to capture all the special details Jenna had asked about and really took great effort to make all our photo dreams a reality. We loved them and I have already recommended Jenna to friends of mine! She's a steal! Just from the preview and some shots she showed me from my camera, I have no doubt our wedding pictures will be nothing less than stunning."

ANDREA + CAMERON

From the mother of the bride... "Jenna Hidinger Photography was amazing. She had a second shooter and her videographer also had a second shooter. She had all timing down to exact moments. She arrived in plenty of time to catch decorations and setting before guests arrived. She and her other photographers caught every moment, even ones that we were unaware of. She was very organized with lists of names who were to have photos taken after the wedding so there was no wasted time in getting the wedding party on to the celebration. Go to her website and view her work. You will not be disappointed. Very, very professional.."
