It’s Nice to Meet You!



I would love to be your photographer!

Kathy-Smith-Photography-211Welcome and Hi!

Thank you for taking the time to check out my photography website.  I am a Master Photographer and a Certified Professional Photographer (CPP) through Professional Photographers of America located in  Blount County TN including the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.  Professional Photographers of America is the leading body for certifying imaging professionals. CPPs must complete a written examination, finish an image evaluation and adhere to a strict code of conduct. Certification must be renewed on a periodic basis, ensuring continued confidence in the professionalism of Certified Professional Photographers.

I am a 2017 Top Ten Photographer through the Tennessee Professional Photographers Association.  I am the Photographer of the Year for 2017 at the Professional Photographers of East Tennessee.

It is my goal to create images for you that will last a lifetime, instead of images that will go out of style when a new ‘fad’ of editing comes around. My style is classic and elegant, giving you fine art photographs you will be proud to pass on to generations to come.  Your session can be in the studio or in the beautiful natural setting of the Great Smoky Mountains.

Kathy Smith Photography, LLC holds a CUA (commercial use authorization) permit with the National Park Service which allows me to photograph your wedding or family portraits within the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, including the popular loop called Cades Cove.

In Loving Memory of my husband, Tyson!
