Ron Wainscott and April Loyle have been working together since 2010, taking Shore Shooters Beach Photography from a one-man “hobby” to a team of more than 30 photographers providing family beach portraits in coastal resort communities throughout Florida, Alabama, South Carolina, and North Carolina.

Ron’s business knowledge and love of the vacation / tourism industry combined with April’s creative leadership and passion for creating opportunities for photographers has resulted in Shore Shooters becoming the Gulf Coast’s leader in beach photography.

In 2017, Ron and April decided to take that same business model to the Great Smoky Mountains and form Mountain Escape Photography.

April has assembled a team of some of the best photographers in East Tennessee and trained them in our unique style of photography.


Providing great photography is very important to us, but that’s only half of it!  We strive to go “above and beyond” with our customer service, and that’s exactly what you’ll receive from our customer service team of Brittney Rush and Walt Loyle.
