Hey there!

Hey there!

From light, natural, airy portraits to eye-catching live music photos, I am a self-taught photographer that truly has one goal: to help you capture your memories and showcase your accomplishment. 

On top of capturing those memories, I understand how difficult visuals can be, whether you are a photographer or a band. I’m here to help you create visuals that will not only help you stand out but help you feel confident and gain listeners and clients. 

Portrait Sessions

Portrait sessions are such a lovely way to celebrate yourself, your significant other, and more. My photo collections start at $125. These collections are great for:

  • Seniors
  • Couples
  • Branding sessions (business owners, photographers, etc.)
  • Prom & homecoming
  • Styled & creative sessions

Music Sessions

Visuals in the music industry are important. I want to help you stand out and meet new fans! These music sessions start at $75 per band. This is great for an artist looking for coverage at:

  • Live shows
  • Tours
  • Music video BTS
  • Studio recording sessions
  • Album + single artwork
  • Promotion pictures

Book Karalyn

If you would like to hire me for your next photo session, please fill out the form below with as much information as you can! I will get back to you as soon as possible!

After you send me a message, I’ll send you my free welcome and investment guide! This will help answer any further questions or concerns you might have about delivery, pricing, and customizable collections. This guide will help make you look and feel your best before, during, and after booking a session with me! 

Please note that lighting will play a factor in how your photos will look! I recommend shooting early in the morning, around sunrise or around the time of the sunset. Golden hour is such a wonderful time, especially for a senior session!

I am Karalyn Hope! I’m a music and portrait photographer from Northeast Pennsylvania and Upstate New York. Read more about me on my about page here!

I always say that my clients will get their photos no later than two weeks after their session! This may change though, of course, if there is an event out of my control.

Basically, printing from my preferred lab guarantees that the color and quality is to your liking! Even though you do get print rights, I cannot guarantee that the print location you are shopping with will print your photos to your liking.

You have this option to license photos for print and/or commercial use! If you want a band promo pic or photo from your live set on your merchandise (shirt, poster, flag, etc.), contact me! All photos I take for you, unless discussed differently in the package, are for social media use only.

That is okay! If you are still serious about booking a photo session with me, let’s talk! I recommend filling out the contact form to see if we can discuss another customizable plan for you or a payment plan. If we are still not a good match, I will do my best to recommend you to another photographer in your area.
Well, that is great! If you would like to book more than the collection options that I have available, let me know! We can book two sessions (ex. one in the summer and one in the winter) or we can have an extended session (ex. three hours, three locations). It is possible! When filling out the contact form, just let me know your thoughts! You will also have an option to purchase more digitals.
Yes! This can be a separate photo session from your main one. Just contact me and we can sort out the details and price! It is a wonderful idea to capture you and your friends together.
Yes! Since one of my main focuses is live music photography, I have worked in low light situations multiple times. 
If you are still a little confused on if you want photos or not, don’t worry! Send me an email at and we can set up a phone or video call to discuss your options more! 

If you have another question that is not listed above, please include it when you fill out the contact form!
