“Only place I saw with a car for a prop”
Reviewed 29 December 2013

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.

“Had a Fantastic Time!”
Reviewed 30 October 2013

Me and the Wife have visited Gatlinburg at least 50 Plus times over the last few years, And every time we have went, we have said, "We're gonna get some Old Time Photos done", and Never do, We Recently went down to Celebrate our 15th Anniversary, On the Trip Down, we were discussing what we were gonna do, after all, we have just about played out this entire area, well the Old Photos discussion came up again, so it was decided that we were gonna go ahead and give a try! So we did, we checked out several locations, and finally decided on this one, and must say, we were not disappointed, Service was GREAT! We had to wait a while, A family of four was ahead of us, So we sit and watched as they went through all of the various poses, The Lady working was very meticulous, and payed extreme attention to detail, which made the experience a little lengthy, But that is Fine, because the end result was well worth it! Once she called us in, we went through several changes, until she found exactly what worked for us, again, this was ok, after she put us through about 10 different poses, she let us go back back and put our regular clothes on and then let us go through every single picture, even showed us how to add effects on the computer, after we finished, she printed off the photos, and we were very happily surprised how they came out! They looked great, And really did look a hundred plus years old! the Prices were good to, so if you are in the Gatlinburg area and wanna get some of these photos done, Check this place out!

“Fun Time”
Reviewed 17 October 2013

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.

“Look around at all of the places”
Reviewed 25 July 2013

My husband and I did not realize there were a few different places to choose from until after we got our pic taken. I think all of them had diff. prices also. We seen one place with better props and better setups. One place had better pricing and diff. outfits. Next time we will look around at all of them.
