Our family of 6 decided at the last minute to have our pictures taken. One of our teenage boys was not wanting to do this but as soon as they put him in the old west clothes he was loving it! Cameron did a phenomenal job and Jamie was great. Everyone was so friendly and made this a fun time. The pictures turned out awesome! Highly recommend!

We had a girls weekend and decided to buy a Groupon for this place as a spur of the moment decision. BEST DECISION EVER! Krista and Janie were our photographers and we had such a blast. Everyone in there was so nice and helpful. I have done old time photos before and Four Bandits surpassed them BY FAR! The attention to detail is amazing and they even picked outfits to match each one of us. Please go visit them if you are in the area!

Staff is exceptional. They were so helpful with picking out clothes and dressing. Photographers are amazing and they take great shots! We had planned on just getting our free 8x10 for using our Groupon but ended up spending over $300 because the pictures were so good!!

Not a Good Place if you won't answer the phone, return a call, or actually be open when the OPEN sign is on.
We bought a groupon and wer SO excited to take our family for an updated Old Time Phone. We arrived in Gatlinburg on Aug 7 and Left today Aug 17. For 10 days we called and left messages to set up an appointment as it was needed for the Groupon. With no return calls we continued to call (Both my mother and myself leaving multiple phone number so someone wopuld get a hold of us... no return calls) We stopped in twice as they had the open sign on but the door was locked and it was dark. We ended up at another Old Time photo as we all looked forward to it and planned to spend a lot more than the groupon here. The other place that had a Groupon and was open when the open sign was lit and answered the phone when we called gladly accepted our Groupon and the additional $150 we spent there.

Went down to pigeon forge and Gatlinburg and bought pictures for four bandits old time photos and called a week in advance to book a spot they said “ohh yes we have spots give me a couple minutes and we will call you back.” They never called back so I called every single day for 5 days and no answer. The lady called me as we were entering Tennessee and said they were completely booked up until the day after we left. I told her the tickets were non refundable. She got completely hateful with me and said “well I don’t know what you want me to do”. My friend got hers done there while we were down there since her tickets were non refundable but she was staying a longer trip. The lady was also very rude to her. The lady assumed I had a Groupon coupon voucher so she was completely rude. I don’t recommend this place.

Wasn't really planning on doing old time photos during our stay in the smokies, but my fiancee and I are so glad that we did! There are many places to go to for old time photos in the gatlinburg/pigeon forge area, but we chose Four Bandits because of the reviews. And they definitely lived up to their reputation. The most important thing to consider for these photo shoots is the photographer. Mary did a great job in taking our photos and was professional and personable. They also had a lot of variety with scene and props. Highly recommend this place!

We went to have old time family pictures taken. We have 3 daughters ages 5, 3, & 1 year so I was nervous about having someone that is good at working with kids. Mary was our photographer & she was every bit of amazing! She took her time & was very playful & patient with all 3 kids! Our pictures turned out better than I could of imagined and since our 1 year old was ready for a nap & we couldn’t really get many pictures of her Mary gave us a discount on our picture package. We will definitely be going there anytime we vacation in the area again!

We had 16 people in our group from ages 4 to 67 and they did a fantastic job. Alli Gunter was the photographer and was aided by Larry and Janie. They did a really great job of getting everyone dressed and then the photos were absolutely outstanding. When asked what was his favorite part of our visit to Pigeon Forge, our 4 year old said "dressing up like a cowboy!" The place is not fancy on the outside, but the people inside are the best!!! Thanks so much!

We were delighted to have Mrs. Mary to be our photographer. She helped us all feel comfortable even with us having a 3 month old to feed and change mid session! We came in with a groupon deal and loved her work much, we bought a digital package. Amazing staff, clean outfits, relaxed atmosphere, and customized deals for every budget.

So glad picked this place! After doing some research we chose four bandits and it was a super amazing experience from start to finish! Walked in and was immediately greeted and shown around with the different props and choices! They have some super cute scenes to pick from! We chose the saloon and Alli was our photographer. She was super experienced and great with us and our 7 yr old daughter!!! She made it all super fun and with the costumes and props we had such a great time!!! The process didn’t take that long either being we are on vacation and didn’t have a lot of time to spare. The prices are very fair and the photos come out amazing!!! So hard to choose because they were all great thanks to Alli! I would recommend this photo place! A+ very professional!
