Gretchen Hope Photography

an investment in forever

capturing life's greatest moments




I love summer nights, stupid memes, genuine love, crisp mountain air, and unforgettable adventure. If you're into pictures that capture feelings in the moment, that feel as real as you are, and you want your memories made to last, then you've come to the right place!

Located in Allentown, Pennsylvania and beyond 

Warmest Welcome

we've all heard "time flies" so let's document your special moments forever

Growing up I remember seeing my parents' wedding picture hung above their bed. I saw that picture every. single. day. For them it was a reminder of their promise, for me it was a promise of their love. The love they had on their wedding day that only grew deeper and stronger as the years passed on. A moment in time. The start of a new chapter. My goal is to create memories you hang on your walls that all who may enter your home can see and feel the love you have for each other.  This is why I do what I do. This is my why. 

My why:

1). I am obsessed with coffee
2). I am a Registered Nurse working in an emergency department in center city
3). I am an old soul who prefers quiet mornings spent sipping coffee slowly
4). I am always down for a hike-especially sunrise (wink wink)
5). I married my first date and we literally only dated each other
6). Homemade Pad Thai is our Sunday tradition as of March 2020
7). I use Lavender essential oil everyday... I've been told it's my "scent"
8). Vincent (husband) and I met in Jackson Hole and our hearts belong out west. We got married in the place we met in 2019.
9). I've literally watched Pride and Prejudice about 19,938 times.
10). I am a self-proclaimed plant lady who is trying my hardest to keep them alive

I am an introvert who sometimes wishes she was an extrovert, I drink coffee like it's my full-time job, and I'm a sucker for a good love story.

booking information:

"Gretchen did engagement photos for my now husband and I this past summer. Not only did we love the final product of the photos, but we had such a fun experience!! Gretchen is kind, funny, and makes you feel so comfortable behind the camera. And the final product looked like it came out of a magazine! We were beyond pleased with her services, and look forward to having her do more photos of us in the future!"
