Jentry Dryden Signature



I am a Reno family photographer & Reno senior photographer, but just like a photograph is more than ink on paper, Fifth and Chestnut Photo Company is so much more than a person with a camera. It’s the culmination of over 14 years of photography experience combined with my own journey into motherhood – built from the heart to create the beautiful documentation & celebration of irreplaceable moments in time.

I specialize in senior portraits, family (and related sessions) & head shots/branding and I am dedicated to crafting the imagery of your unique story with authenticity.

I believe that every senior deserves a rewarding photo experience that builds their confidence in ways they couldn’t have imagined and empowers them so that they can positively and happily head towards their next step in life. I do that by providing a FUN, safe and adventurous experience that results in phenomenal images that showcase their authentic self while allowing them to uniquely stand out.

I also believe that every family deserves a fun memory-building photo experience that brings them together with joy. I do that by encouraging your family to laugh together and be close while providing a casual atmosphere and by educating and preparing you for your family session so that you can relax and enjoy yourself, too.

Finally, I believe that every small business owner or brand deserves to have portraits & branding images that build solid relationships so that they can strengthen and grow their presence in our community.

Whether I am photographing Reno high school seniors, families or brands, I strive to produce images that feel true to the dynamic and personality of the people I photograph.

My photography is cheerful, bright and natural.

I am a proud supporter of marriage equality and I welcome ALL people and families. Like me on Facebook and Instagram for news, tips and to get to know me!

As an award-winning Photographer and artist, Jentry is a storyteller. An ambitious creative with a long background in photography and graphic design, Jentry is a devoted wife and mother of four (a teenage stepson, an elementary-aged son and boy/girl twin toddlers). She graduated UNR with a BA in Journalism (Advertising Sequence) and a Minor in Psychology in 2006 and began her journey into photography over a decade ago. Her accolades include Silver and Gold Addy Awards for photography, logo design and illustration. She has been the recipient of Editor's Choice awards and "Best of" awards in Reno in photography categories. Aside from being a Reno Family Photographer and Reno High School Senior Photographer, she loves to snowboard, create children's illustrations, binge-watch Friends on Netflix and spend precious time with her family. Starting her own business and having her children have been her greatest joys in life. She enjoys immersing herself in fun and rewarding projects - especially through collaboration with other creative, happy people. Her goal with every client, for all family-related photo sessions, is to connect with them in meaningful ways to form relationships and be inspired by their story - to photograph from a genuine and heartfelt angle.

Our clients and colleagues are thrilled. See for yourself.

  • We used Fifth and Chestnut for our engagement photos, our wedding, and now for family photos! Jentry has followed our little family and done an amazing job capturing beautiful moments for us! She has always been accommodating and flexible. She did amazing with our toddler who was less than enthusiastic about getting photos taken! Jentry wasn’t afraid to act silly and pull out toys to get a smile or laugh! We are incredibly grateful for all of the photos we have gotten from Fifth and Chestnut. They show an authentic side of our family and represent us well. I’m not an expert in photography but I’ve used other photographers with less than desirable outcomes both in photo quality and overall experience. Hands down Fifth and Chestnut is our go to photographer!

  • We were blown away with our newborn photoshoot with Jentry. She was absolutely magical with our little guy, and so detailed down to the placement of every single finger. We cherish our photos and still regularly show them to our boy now, over 2 years later. We highly recommend Jentry for all your family photoshoot needs!

  • Your pictures of our family are the best we have ever had done with kids. You were so patient and gracious with an uncooperative child. When you left, I thought there was no way my oldest was captured in a decent photo. When I got the images back I was blown away that you were able to turn the moments that felt like a struggle into a beautiful memory. Thank you so much for your dedication and gift of capturing the good stuff!
