Wondering if we're the right choice for you? Here are some of our Townsend, Pigeon Forge, and Gatlinburg Photographer Reviews

I am absolutely blown away by everything done by Mountain Escape! The scheduling was so easy, communication was very simple, & the entire shoot was absolutely perfect. Erica was our photographer and I cannot tell you enough how much we absolutely enjoyed her! This was our first time getting professional photos taken and she made the entire experience incredible & very memorable. She did a phenomenal job & we couldn’t have asked for anyone better, honestly. I have 0 complaints, I’m elated with the pictures & I couldn’t recommend Mountain Escape more. Thank you so much for making our first experience so amazing!


If you’re on the fence, think no more. Go for it! You cannot beat this. Especially adding in the fact that your gallery is unlimited. We did a family shoot with Jillian and she was phenomenal! Our pictures will be treasured forever.


We love Mountain Escape Photography! We took a family vacation to Gatlinburg and decided last minute that we wanted to try and book for a session. Not only were they able to squeeze us in at such late notice but we’re also reasonably priced. We worked with Jaira and Jesse. Both extremely nice and did wonderful work. Our pictures turned out perfect!! We couldn’t be happier with the quality and amount of photos received. We will cherish these photos and memories made for years to come. Thank you for such a wonderful experience.


Erica was AMAZING! The pictures were beautiful, I can’t stop crying! Thank you so much Erica for capturing this special moment!


Please let Sara know she knocked the pics out of the park and I have given your website out to 4 people in the last hour, who are planning visits this summer. Thanks again!!


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!


We were soooo happy with our experience shooting with Erica. She was fantastic to work with. She had a lot of ideas on how to pose us, which made the experience easy for us and helped us feel comfortable in front of the camera. I wish all photographers were as good as her! These will be pictures we treasure for a lifetime. Thank you!


Thank you so much Chyrel!! Our pictures turned out lovely. Customer support responded so quick and was super helpful. I am really glad I choose you guys for my photos! Thank you!


Jillian was wonderful!!


Erica was awesome! Anytime we are in that area again, we will make sure to schedule other session!


Our photographer was very professional and super creative, she made it so smooth and easy for the two of us.


Macie was great!! She picked an amazing spot for our pictures and gave us some good ideas for poses.


Erica was absolutely amazing. She was the perfect fit for me and our wedding. She was thoughtful, kind, professional. I give her 100/10. We enjoyed every single minute with her. She made me feel beautiful and confident. I could not have asked for a better experience or wedding photographer. Give that girl a raise or a promotion. She's phenomenal.


We had the best time with our photographer, Brittney. She was absolutely fantastic and made it so fun and comfortable. I don't know how we would have gotten married without her there because she really helped streamline and guide us! The pictures are breathtaking and we are in love with them. It was such a treat to get a sneak peek prior to getting the album. We are so excited to share the photos with our family and friends. The colors turned out beautifully which we were excited for with fall colors and with the beautiful colors of our flowers. Thank you, Brittney, for being the best photographer we could have imagined! It was a pleasure to work with you.

Erica is a Sweetheart. The whole time she was interacting with us. She was very interested in making us feel Comfortable. The turn out of the Pictures are great. Keep the Good Job Erica, we are planning to return in July to have our 10 years weeding anniversary Pictures. Thank you


Sara was an excellent photographer! She helped pick out an amazing location and the pictures are to die for! Amazing work! Give that lady a rase or more clients! 10/10


Erica was so sweet and flexible with us as we had to change locations last minute! We love our photos and could not be happier with the entire experience we had! Thank you!


Sara was a great photographer. Easy to work with, flexible with us, and very patient. She did a fantastic job!


Erica is amazing! Overall great experience and so happy with our photos!


Macie was absolutely amazing and really worked with us. We had an issue with some family getting lost and she hung around to make sure everyone was able to get there and be a part of the pictures. And to top it off the pictures are amazing. Thank you!!!


We loved our experience with Mountain Escape Photography. Erica was so professional and easy to work with even though we had such a large group! The pictures turned out amazing! I would highly recommend them!


We had a great experience and the pictures came out amazing! Macie was great and super friendly. My whole family (there were 17 of us) had so much fun. Thank you so much!


Our photographer Jillian made us feel so comfortable and she was great with our little boy when he wasn't wanting to participate in the photos at first. The turn around time was absolutely amazing and the quality of our photos is wonderful. I honestly could not be happier with how our family/maternity photos turned out. I will cherish them forever and I will highly recommend you all to anyone and everyone. Thank you so much!


Our photographer, Erica, was amazing! She was so good with all my of my girls. She took beautiful photos and captured us all perfectly. She was very patient with my children and just let them be themselves. She took all the photos efficiently and beautifully! She was kind and courteous of our time. She also chose a perfect location. I would highly recommend her and mountain escape photography to anyone. She did not disappoint! We now have beautiful memories of our trip that will last forever! Thank you Erica! Sincerely, Ryan, Magan, Maya, Gabby and Isla


This is our second year using Mountain Escape Photography for our family trip and have already booked them again for next year! Macie was our photographer this year and was FANTASTIC! She was so patient with our daughter and kept us laughing. We got some great posed photos but I love all of the real life / natural moments she captured as well. These are by far the best family pictures we have had done so far! HIGHLY recommend!


Wow- these pictures are wonderful! Sara did an excellent job and we couldn’t be happier! Thank you!!


Erica is amazing at what she does! This is the first time we have been so comfortable with a photographer and it truly shows in our photos!


We are so happy with how everything went and we love our pictures! Sara was great!


Our session was wonderful, fun and full of laughter! Brittney was so good and easy to work with! She captured some great moments that were not posed or planned! She was very sweet and just a beauty inside and loves what she does ! The pictures show that as well! Fun time and will use y’all again in the future! Thank you Brittney!


It was a delight having Erica as our photographer. A breathtaking view and amazing pictures we get to keep forever. We thank Erica for her friendly, professional, and making it very comfortable for us. Thank you!


Choosing Mountain Escape Photography was probably the best decision we made for a photographer. Macie made the experience very fun and easy, she really also made us less nervous. Our pictures turned out great and we are very happy with them!


Macie was absolutely wonderful and great to work with, our pictures turned out beyond perfect and I couldn't be any happier.


Erica was AMAZING! We had three babies schedules that we were working around and Erica was so very understanding and patient while we catered to the babies. I can\'t wait to show off these portraits and send everyone your way for future appointments!! THANK YOU for making yesterday\'s memories a lifetime of happiness to look back on!


Loved our experience, Macie was an amazing photographer and very easy to talk to. She gave direction on where to look and what to do. We would have been lost without her direction cause photos aren\'t our thing. She made the experience a breeze. I highly recommend her again and to all my friends or everyone who needs photos done. If we ever do photos again, we will definitely be asking for her. Thanks, Jessica & Travis


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!!


Erica was WONDERFUL! The way she handled our large family was so efficient and well done. She also worked with the kids, especially the ones with special needs, so compassionately and they really responded to her. Not to mention the photos are beautiful!


Absolutely amazed with the quality of work that you all put forth. Macie was absolutely awesome to work with! Very laid back and personable, she made the experience very relaxed. Our photos were in Cades Cove, I’d suggest to anyone that wants to shoot at the cove to do the 3 hour package to allow for time in traveling to locations. I’m literally speechless right now... I found Mnt Escape just off a google search, and looked at some of their work on Instagram, well worth the money. Can’t wait to do this again. Thank You so much for capturing this special moment for me and my now fiancé!!


Cavina and Drew are absolutely amazing!! We absolutely could not have had a better time and acquired such amazing results for our first maternity shoot. I was blown away by their level of expertise and relatability. They are highly recommended by us and we are so grateful for the blessing they’ve given us. We hope to work with them again in the future!!


My family and I just recently had a photo shoot with Erica and it was fantastic. Communication and promptness was excellent. We have zero complaints. If your on the fence about using them don't be. We would gladly use again and highly recommend.


We loved working with Brittney, she put us at ease and tried to get everything we wanted.


This process has been smooth and simple from start to finish and I’m in love with our pictures! Erica was so great to work with, she knew all the great spots and was so kind. We enjoyed our session so much and feel like she really captured our family.I honestly don’t know how I’ll pick which photos to print—they’re all so good!


Photographer did a wonderful job. She made it easy and comfortable. Love the pictures! Turned out amazing!


Amazing experience! Macie was fabulous and creative! This is an experience we will never forget and can't wait to come back with the family to do a family shoot!


My husband and I wanted to have pictures taken in the mountains in our wedding attire especially since we didn't get many on our actually wedding day (!!) We fell in love with our pictures; they were so much more than what we we're hoping for!Erica was beyond amazing! She made taking pictures fun and was so helpful when it came to poses since we aren't the best at taking pictures! I would recommend to everyone and will use again when our family begins to grow!❤😁


We wanted family pictures in the Smoky Mountains, I found Mountain Escape Photography through Google. So happy I did! The whole process was so easy. Erica is an amazing photographer! She is so sweet, professional, and wonderful with kids. She knows all the right spots and we were about to shoot at two locations all within an hour. We never felt rushed! She made the whole process fun! Before we finished she made sure she had taken all the shots we wanted. She even took a picture of our family in our Jeep with the mountains behind us! We had to pictures with 3 days. There turn around time is amazing! I have ordered prints and a jump drive from the Mountain Escape Photography website. Prices are very reasonable and are packaged very well!


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!

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!


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.


Erica was awesome, she went above and beyond all our expectations. We loved having her as our photographer. She was professional, kind and loving. We really felt welcomed and comfortable working with her. She really made our anniversary day better and memorable. Looking at the pictures now, brings back all the memories and the nice conversation we had. I would definitely recommend her to a friend or a family member. Thank you very much for your great job. Regards, Tamador & Hattan


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!


We had a wonderful experience with Erica. She knew the area for some incredible family pictures and was very patient with our family of sixteen! I feel blessed to have these photos that capture our grandchildren ages ranging from 1 to 15💕 I really can’t recommend Mountain Escape Photography enough.


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 Brittany in the office to having Erica take the photos was an amazing experience !


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


Erica was absolutely phenomenal! She made ya feel so comfortable and the pictures came out incredible! We will definitely consider booking again!


We loved every single thing about working with this company. Erica was a great photographer, when we first met she asked if I was looking for anything specific. When we received our pictures back she captured everything I was looking for and more. This was a wonderful experience on our family vacation. We will definitely be booking another session in a few years on our next trip to Gatlinburg.
