About Smoky Mountain Photographers

We are a group of photographers who are licensed and permitted to photograph weddings, elopements, engagement sessions, family photography, and portraits in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. As professional photographers, we uphold the guidelines and rules put forth by the national park to preserve and protect both the land and our clients. 

This site was created to connect individuals with licensed and approved photographers who can help capture their celebrations and family memories while visiting the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

If you are a licensed photographer and would like to be added to the approved National Park Photographer Commercial Use Authorization List, please contact Lisa Brown at


Please note: We are an independent effort; we are not an official partner of the National Park Service (NPS) or the Great Smoky Mountains National Park (GSMNP), though all photographers listed on this site have obtained Commercial Use Authorization permits to conduct business in the GSMNP.
