Gretchen Hope Photography

an investment in forever

capturing life's greatest moments




I love summer nights, stupid memes that I laugh at for hours, 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 pictures 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 see and can feel the love, your love for each other.  This is why I do what I do. This is my why. 

My why:

10 Things About Me...
1). I am addicted to 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 on the porch.
4). I am always down for a hike-especially sunrise
5). I married my first date and we literally only dated each other
6). Latt├ęs are my jam slice
7). I use Lavender essential oil everyday... I've been told it's my "scent"
8). I married my best friend, Vincent in Jackson Hole in August 2019
9). My celebrity crushes are Dave Ramsey and Joanna Gaines
10). My Friday nights are usually spent at home, on the couch, with a latte, and a good documentary and I'm not mad about it. 

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.

"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!"
