Hi There!  We Are A Team Of Licensed Smoky Mountain Photographers

I know that sometimes this comes as a surprise when booking a photographer.

Mountain Escape Photography is made up of a few like minded folks who love the Smoky Mountains and absolutely LOVE showing it off!

We all have such similar  styles, you can’t even tell who shot what around here. That’s why we’ve been careful when forming our team of Townsend, Pigeon Forge, and Gatlinburg photographers, to ensure that our brand is well represented. In fact, this website and our social media is loaded with work from the whole team!

We even have in-house editing to help keep things cohesive. When you book a Smoky Mountain photography session with us, you’ll get the security of working with experienced professionals in our office as well as talented photographers out in the field. It’s the best of both worlds!

Why Choose Us?

NO LIMITS:  A lot of photographers will only give you 10 or 20 pictures from your session.  Most of our clients receive somewhere between 75 and 150 pictures in their online gallery.  We don’t limit the number of pictures you’ll receive.  

ALL-INCLUSIVE PRICING:  We don’t believe in hidden fees.  The price you see is the total price you pay.  Our packages include all of the high-resolution digital images with print release so you can print and share them wherever you want!

QUICK TURNAROUND:  Your pictures will be ready for viewing and downloading 2 to 3 business days after your session.  You can download them directly from your online gallery.  Your gallery will remain online for a year.  You can download them as many times as you want during that year.

EXPERIENCED PHOTOGRAPHERS:  All of our photographers are hand-picked by our co-owner April Loyle and have years of experience working with couples and families.

CUSTOMER SERVICE:  We have a dedicated full-time customer service team that is here to help you through every step of the process.  Their goal is to make sure every Mountain Escape client is a happy client!

Here's What Clients Are Saying About Our Pigeon Forge / Gatlinburg Photographers

Erica did beyond amazing. Amazing is such an understatement when it comes to how beautiful our photos turned out. Not only does it show the love between my husband and I, but it boosted my self esteem by a thousand times!
Macie was excellent! She worked with us on the time and location for our session- she even did our session earlier than scheduled to accommodate us. She was very professional and personable. The pictures are beautiful! We received the digital photographs very quickly! Definitely would recommend and would schedule with them again! Worth the money!
Erica was absolutely amazing. She was the PERFECT mix between being professional but also making you feel like family. She was the sweetest girl and the pictures are absolutely breathtaking. I couldn\'t say better things about Erica and Mountain Escape photography.
Sara was a great photographer. Easy to work with, flexible with us, and very patient. She did a fantastic job!
Beautiful work, very professional photographers. We highly recommend.
Erica was amazing and professional. We were late getting to the spot for the pictures as it was a surprise proposal but she just took it in stride and the pictures are amazing! I appreciated her so much for this! Erica truly captured the surprise perfectly !! From first speaking to Brittney in the office to having Erica take the photos was an amazing experience !
Brittney was an AMAZING photographer! She loves what she does and is so easy to work with. We couldn’t be more pleased with our photos. Process is easy and enjoyable. Would do it again in a heartbeat!
This was the first time I have ever had professional pictures taken and can I just say that this company was AMAZING! Macie was our photographer and she made the whole session simple and so much fun!! The pictures turned out better than expected and my boyfriend and I couldn’t be happier. I will definitely be booking again the next time we are in the area for another session!
My fiancée and I wanted to take engagement photos during our vacation in the great smoky mountains and we are so lucky to have found Mountain Escape Photography! Erica was our photographer and she was wonderful. The pictures turned out beautiful and they were ready very quickly. We highly recommend this photography company!
I loved the enthusiasm from our photographer! Cavina had so much patience working with us and made sure she took photos at an angle where I felt comfortable and confident in my body. She made sure we got enough shots similar to sample pictures I sent and did everything in her power to take some beautiful photos! I would love to work with her again, she was amazing! 10/10
I cannot express how incredible this experience was for my daughter and I. The photographer we had, Erica, was so sweet and just let us do our thing. We had a few ideas, and she let us run with it! The finished product was incredible, more than I could have imagined! I would recommend Erica to anyone who is interested in professional photos in the area!!
Wow! Macie was absolutely phenomenal! We are beyond thrilled with our pictures! Thank you Mountain Escape for everything!!
We had a photo session with Erica and everything turned out absolutely fantastic. We have zero complaints and would gladly use you all again.
Macie was great!! She picked an amazing spot for our pictures and gave us some good ideas for poses.
Sara was awesome to work with! Our pictures turned out GREAT! We are so happy with them! Would 100% recommend to family and friends!
Erica was so great to work with – from the planning call all the way through the final images. She has the absolute best personality and was so kind and wonderful with our kiddos. Despite the sprinkling rain and a cranky kiddo, Erica managed to capture the beauty and capitalize on the moment. The photos are gorgeous and we couldn't be happier with the entire experience!
