about us 

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!


If you 're down to run around in open fields, hop over a mountain stream, and maybe even get your shoes dirty, we're the photographers for you!
