Awesome experience

We took our three children, ages 5, 7, and 9, and Jimi was amazing with them. He was very patient and knowledgeable.

Went to the one by subway across from mountain mall. He did a nice job being patient. The store had just reopened from the fire a couple months ago. We got great pics so all in all it was a good experience.

Finally talked my husband into taking an old time photo. Once we got there, I had him pick what we were going to do. He wanted moonshiners. Our photographer was really helpful. Once we were in costume, we had a blast with the poses. We were very pleased with our photos and our photographer. I'm so glad we did, we... More

My husband and I do an ole time photo every year on our trip to the Smokies. This is our favorite so far. Super fast and friendly and a great selection of clothing, accessories, and scenes to choose from. Our photo at another place last year had my husbands running shoes showing , didn't quite go with the confederate soldier... More

Very disappointed. Went with a bachelorette party got blurry photos and didn't give us time to pose and smile. Told us her camera was crappy! Rushed another group in the dressing room with our purses and what not in the room. Then went out of her way to tell us to put a tip in her jar. NO THANKS!

Finding something that four teenagers all like isn't always easy. I've walked past these shops dozens of times...but this was the time to try it. Great costumes, friendly service and Jimi was awesome!! I would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting.

Stopped in on a whim to get an old time photo of my four year old. Autumn was terrific, she was so patient and creative ~ the photos turned out wonderful. Definitely would recommend this to everyone.

My family and I stopped here on a whim. We enjoyed dressing up like a western gang. My kids especially like the costumes with pistols and rifles. The guy running the shop was nice and seemed to enjoy what he was doing. He took lots of pictures so we were sure to get some we liked. There are several photo... More
