About your Smoky Mountains Elopement Photographer
I’m Hannah, an East Tennessee elopement photographer. I am a Enneagram 7, which if you don’t know anything about the Enneagram, it basically means I am ALWAYS down for an adventure. That’s why I put this Smoky Mountains Elopement Package together for you.
I am outgoing, a lover of coffee, & I have a slight obsession with the sunrise or sunset over the beautiful Smokey Mountains that I gladly get to live beside. When I’m capturing a couple saying ‘I Do’, you will find me either happy crying, squealing in excitement, or dancing during every moment of the day with you!

Comments about your Smoky Mountains Elopement in Tennessee
If the weather conditions make it dangerous to proceed with parts of your Smoky Mountains Elopement in Tennessee, the itinerary might be adjusted.
Roads in the mountains will be physically blocked off during snowy & icy months. There is a location in Kodak, TN (30-45 minutes outside of Gatlinburg) that is never closed and has a beautiful view of the mountains and requires no hiking. This will be the backup plan for your Smoky Mountains Elopement if all roads are closed by park rangers.
In case of winter road close-offs, there is possibility to reschedule your Smoky Mountains Elopement in Tennessee by +-2 days under the condition that the couple and photographer is available.

How to prepare for your Smoky Mountains Elopement in Tennessee
The entire Gatlinburg area (Pigeon Forge, Sevierville, & surrounding cities) are full of food, stay, & entertainment options. Hiking trails can be as close as 5 minutes or 40 minutes away. It all depends on where you are staying.
I would recommend knowing what type of adventure & photos you would like for your Smoky Mountains Elopement in Tennessee, then find your accommodations from there.
Once leaving the city and going into the mountains, some public restrooms are available. There are no gas stations or restaurants, so filling up your tank and belly is highly recommended! 🙂
Traffic can be heavy at times, so week day sunrise adventures are best for your Smoky Mountains Elopement, though with proper planning, evening and weekend adventures will be just as fun!
Optional Add-ons to your Smoky Mountains Elopement Package
