Well, hello there!
That is me trying to act cool during light testing at a wedding.
I am not that cool, but I am pretty silly and I love to laugh!
I love Jesus and cheese, dogs , the smell of campfire, pine scented anything, Chick-fil-a, and t-shirts. I love the beach, the mountains, and the forest. I love hiking and the quiet that surrounds you.
I also love this job and all it has become to me.
It all started in 2008, when I was talking to friend about how amazing it would be to travel and photograph the world. She said, well why don't you? She was right, why didn't I? So, a different friend financed my very first digital camera, a Nikon D60, and here I am!
I can't tell you how many highs and lows I have had, but I can tell you that I am still excited every time I get to pick up my camera and capture a memory, just like I was the first time.


Have you ever dreamed of traveling to a location and getting married?
I dream of photographing your wedding or elopement in these locations and will offer deep discounts for booking my photography services for your event here!

Will travel for Senior and Family Sessions also!

Jenni was a truly amazing part of our wedding. She captured beautiful photos of our special day and handled both nervous moms like a pro! She even managed to get some awesome pics of our pup, which we did not expect. I would pick her a thousand times over

I cannot recommend The Focused Soul and Jenni Hecht enough as a wedding photographer!! Book her if you can! She was so friendly, professional, and passionate about us as her clients, and we could tell she really cared about getting the best shots of us. We loved that she communicated efficiently with not just us, but with our bridal party and other vendors, and could take control and gather everyone to get the right shots, especially if there were specific pictures I wanted!. She took so many candid shots, and truly captured the beauty of the day- she got so many amazing shots, it was SO hard to choose exactly the ones we wanted displayed in our house! We loved working with Jenni, and we know you will too! We really hope to use her in the future for family photos and baby photos!
