We went here for our first family portrait. Jimi was our photographer and he did a great job! He was patient with our 7 month old and very easy to work with, even when the baby threw up on his floor! I highly recommend getting photos taken here by Jimi! The pictures turned out terrific and unlike some other old... More

We had always done these when we were kids and it had been about 20 years since the last one. We went in with a group of 7 including a baby and the attendant did a great job helping us pick out the outfits and get posed. The backdrops are very fun and the final photos look great.

My 9 yo son and I have had our photo taken here two years in a row now. The staff is friendly and helpful. They have not been pushy about upgrading to this and that. If you are in the mood for an old time photo, I would recommend this place.

I'll never suggest or go to this place ever again. Let's see a few reasons: 1. Didn't listen to any suggestions we made, kept hearing "I've been doing this for 35 years, I know how to take pictures" 2. Kept giving my wife a gun, when she said no gun please, we had it 18 month old with us, trying... More

Female worker used a clip to tighten my 5 year old daughters dress in the back and literally pinched off her skin! She was not apologetic to say the least and tried to rush us out before anyone could see us there with a screaming child! It ruined our vacation, and left a scar on my child's back. I wish... More

There are many old time photography places in Gatlinburg but my daughter chose this one as she liked the old car prop for her photos. The people were friendly, and didn't try pushing sales onto us. The photography also did a good job. Prices were fairly decent, about the cheapest on the main strip.

The employee knew what she was doing. She was nice and friendly. We had a really good time making the old time pictures. They have individual pictures or a small package to buy. Also mats to buy to put the pictures in. Prices about average I believe.
