Behind the Lens

  • Hello, as you can probably guess, my name is Karey Dean. It is my passion to capture the moments in life that we can't get back.
  • I took the opportunity in 2010 to leave my fulltime job to make my photography business official and I don't regret it one bit!! I love what I do and feel very fortunate to be able to say that!
  • Lyle is my best friend, husband and #1 support. He is my personal computer genius and website designer as well as my shooting assitant on some shoots. This would all still be a dream without him!

Why Photography?

Photography is the only tangible way to keep those important memories close to you. I love looking back at old photos from over the years and reminiscing about days passed.

In some cases, they are some of the only memories I have of relatives that are no longer with us.

Maternity, newborns, 1st birthday bashes to graduation and everything in between- I'm honored to freeze moments in time from each stage of life!


  • Williamsport Wedding Photographer“Karey was a fantastic person to work with on our wedding day. She was professional and relaxed. We enjoyed the day and were very pleased when we saw the end results! Her and Lyle seem to have an amazing gift to snap pictures of all the special moments. They turned out absolutely beautiful! It's hard to pick the ones we would like prints of! I would absolutely recommend her for anything and I know my wife and I plan to use her again!”

  • sleeping baby Grayson“When I found out that I was pregnant I really wanted to not only share my excitement with friends and family but also do something so I would always have a way to remember that time. I went to Karey to help me capture those memories. She did an amazing job with our maternity photos and after our little guy was born, she captured his sweet and innocent newborn face. All the images Karey took were beautiful and I can't wait to see how she helps us celebrate his 1st birthday! ”

Introducing My New Studio Location!

I am excited to announce my new STUDIO LOCATION right here in Williamsport. The studio is located just behind Winner Hardware and two doors down from Maseto's Deli on Dewey Ave. I still love outdoor natural light photography and I'll still be available for any on-site photography you may need. The studio will just make it much more convenient and comfortable especially during the cold winter months!
