Testimonials

“We are so pleased with the great photos we had taken at our cabin in Sevierville for our 50th Wedding Anniversary. Our whole family was able to make the trip from Indiana and Michigan. They took their time in getting just the right light and angle for everyone and took extra time in getting the youngest two great grandsons to smile. Every picture is so professionally done. I’m so glad that I contacted this company and they came right to us and with 18 of us, we didn’t really want to go anywhere.”

“Don and Sherry Dupy are our new extended family. They arrived at our cabin on time and ready to photograph our family. Don and Sherry immediately removed all anxiety we may have had and we had a very relaxing time together just chatting, setting up for photos, joking, everyone felt at ease and our family pictures reflect that peace and love. If you want beautiful, affordable, no-stress photos D & P is a great choice. We plan to have Don take more pictures of us. Plus the photo package was at our house by the time we returned from vacation! Thanks so very much for the great pictures!”

WE HAD PICTURES TAKEN AT OUR CABIN AND THEN A SENIC BACK ROADS DRIVE TO A PARK IN GATLINGBURG THAT DON NEW AND WE WOUND UP WITH SO MANY FANTASTIC PHOTOS THAT IT WAS VERY DIFFICULT TO CHOOSE.

“We gathered together in the Smokies for a family reunion to celebrate our 50 years of marriage. Don & his wife were waiting for us at our agreed upon meeting place and led us to a wonderful spot for taking family photos. They captured all 22 of us in a once-in-a-lifetime family photo as well as many other combinations of us, our four married children, and our 12 grandchildren. They were almost hidden and never hurried us as we took our time to pick out the ones we wanted. The photos were delivered promptly and look great! We have enjoyed the added benefit of being able to freely share them with friends and other family members. Thank you!”

“Great! I would like to start off by saying that the service Mr. Don Dupy provided was excellent and professional. My husband and I were married on Dec. 26th 2015, 2 days after my brother passed. Initially we were not going to go through with getting married after the passing of my oldest brother but we proceeded because we had scheduled everything as well as paid for different services. After the ceremony my husband and I contacted Mr. Don to let him know that we were running behind but would meet him ASAP. Want to say he waited patiently for us to arrive and even took us to a bank downtown where we could use the ATM to pay for his services. We were taken to a beautiful location, there was a barn, covered bridge and flowing water ” Absolutely Beautiful”! This site was chosen by Don. I want to say all my husband and I had to do was arrive everything else was taken care of. After our session we were allowed to choose according to the package we selected. Very reasonable prices for such beautiful pictures. All selected turned out perfect!!! I am looking forward to visiting Gatlingburg, upcoming Dec. and would like have pictures made for our 1st year anniversary. I definitely look forward to having Don provide services to us once again. Very kind, professional, great work and overall excellent services. Our photo package arrived promptly as promised. You really made our wedding experience a great despite the fact I had recently lost a sibling, yet I was able to smile during my session and through your professional work my smiled projected genuinely. Thanks to D and P photo service”

“Don made the entire experience a very pleasant family outing – even the three little ones enjoyed working with Don. Even though we ran a little late in meeting him, he was very cordial and didn’t make us feel rushed in any way, shape or form. He was willing to take as many photos as we wanted and we are very pleased with the photos we chose. I would definitely give a big thumbs up to Don and the work he produces. Thanks, Don, for making our family trip to a very special place for us so much more enjoyable and memorable!”

“Don is amazing! So accommodating we were going to meet him at the welcome center in Gatlinburg and follow him to a park but the night before once we arrived in town at our cabin we decided we would rather have our pictures taken at our cabin because we had an amazing view! When I called him and asked if we could change locations he said ” no problem” he met us at our cabin and he did an amazing job! He is so kind and professional! He even delivered our disk the next day!! I would highly recommend Don!! Oh and his prices are great!”

I came up with the idea of having our pictures taken together while we were visiting Pigeon Forge for our 27th wedding anniversary. I started searching online and Don replied immediately. His pricing was just what we were looking for. We wanted just a few pictures and did not want to spend a great deal. He was very prompt in arriving at our cabin and taking several different shots. He does not pressure you into purchasing, you make all your choices. He explained very well how the process worked. He took our pictures Saturday morning and the pictures arrived at my home in Ohio on Tuesday. My husband and I truly enjoyed meeting Don and the whole experience.

-Bill and Kelly

Don was great! We planned an Anniversary shoot while we vacationed in Gatlinburg and Don made the experience comfortable and fun. He even picked out a few beautiful locations for us. We often feel awkward taking pictures (and it shows) but Don gave us some suggestions and was patient and we ended up with our best photos yet. He sent us the CD and print fast and it was packaged nicely. We both highly recommend Don!

Sept 21, 2015 I have been an avid photographer for about 40 years doing a lot of both still and movie work and I feel that Mr. Dupy’s work is un-surpassed in all aspects. The print colors are true to life, in very sharp focus and I think could not have been done any better. Also, he was very prompt with delivery of the finished product. I would recommend his his work to anyone. Jerry

We were so happy to find D & P Photo to take our 5 year anniversary photos. A friend had D&P take their family photos several years ago and the pictures were amazing. We couldn’t be happier with our pictures and
Don Dupy is a fine gentleman to deal with. Thank you for making our anniversary one to remember!

Our family would like to thank you for a wonderful photo session. There were 24 of us at our family reunion. You were very patient, taking many photos for us to choose from. We were thrilled with the whole process. Thank you!

August 2015

This was a wonderful experience and we love our pictures! There were 16 of us, including 6 grandchildren. When Don arrived at our cabin, Tennessee Dreamer, he loved how high up our cabin was and took the time to find the right place on the third floor deck to get the best shots, with the Smokies behind our group. This was our family reunion and he was willing to take whatever poses we wanted – breaking out into all the family groupings. He spent at least an hour with the camera and then another 1/2 hour while we decided on which poses to get. My daughter found him online. His prices are very affordable and he responded to a concern we had about a few of the poses and redid them for us. No problem! Our first DVD arrived even before we got home. And then the corrected DVD arrived just days after my email. Would recommend him highly!

-Ruthie

We loved that you were on time, affordable and that we received our disc and photo in a timely manner. The pictures look great! You definitely captured several family moments. Thanks for doing such a great job.

-Nancy

This was a wonderful experience and we love our pictures! There were 16 of us, including 4 children. Don scouted out the best place for us to do the shooting which went so smoothly. This is the way to do it when on vacation. He came to us, we posed for the pictures, selected the ones we wanted on DVD and then returned to enjoying our stay. Our DVD arrived shortly after returning from Gatlinburg. We would definitely call on him again.

On Saturday,June 27, 2015, we celebrated our 30th., in Gatlinburg, Tennessee and used the services of D&P Photo. We would like to recommend Don to anyone who needs a professional and friendly photographer! He didn’t rush us to take our pictures and we didn’t feel timed!
When we returned home to Michigan, our photo disc and pictures were waiting for us and the color is so clear. The pictures were simply beautiful !!
Thank you Don,for making our Family Reunion one that we will always treasure!

We had family pictures taken with our dog over Thanksgiving break. Don had great ideas for beautiful, scenic locations. Don was incredibly friendly, patient and professional. Once we saw the pictures we were thrilled with how well they came out. Don’s work is impeccable and top notch. We will definitely call Don for our next family gathering in the Gatlinberg area. No doubt, the best quality at great prices.

We received our pictures and absolutely loved them! My boys talked about how much they liked you and the work you did! Can you give me a price on the rest of the pictures? I would like to buy all them.

Thanks

-Jayne

Don, even though I didn’t meet you in person, I wanted to tell you what a wonderful job you did with my daughters engagement!! You made the proposal extra special by catching the entire event on camera without her knowing it. The entire experience was just perfect! Haley and Adam loved the photos and thought you were just great. Thank you so much for everything !

-Cindy

Don took my son’s senior pictures and we could not be happier! He did an excellent job! We are from Ohio and when we get back down there to visit again we are definitely hiring him to do more family pictures! My boys loved him and the excellent work he did. My son has very awesome pictures. Thanks Don!

-Duane

We had a wonderful time with Don! He was so professional and patient with our family photo shoot for my Dad’s 90th birthday! We could not have been more pleased! Pictures turned out great and were at the house when I arrived home four days later. We will use D&P Photo Service again in the future.

-Gretchen

Received the disc and our 8×10 family photo. I just took the photo to the frame shop and it looks great. Thanks for being so flexible with your time. The weather can’t be controlled and you were willing to adjust your time. Not having hot water when we woke up was a surprise but you adjusted your time again for our family photos. Thanks for the great shots.I know it was very difficult to get 16 people, ages 3-73, looking in the same direction. We appreciate everything you did to make our family vacation one to remember.

-Gail

The pictures are beautiful! Thanks, Don, for your patience with our brood and the lovely result. You really made me feel like there was no rush, and were willing to take as many photos as we wanted. Thanks, also, for the free print!

-Cathy

Hi Don

I wanted to let you know we received your envelope and love the pictures. I really appreciate you taking the time out of your holiday to help us capture some memories of our family. I will definitely keep you in mind if we come back next year and will pass along your information to any friends who come in town.

-Michele

My wife and I recently celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary with our family. One of our daughters found out about D&P and made arrangements for Don to take our pictures at the cabin. Don did a great job – excellent results – even managed to catch most of the crew with a smile on their face at the same time:) The pictures were great, Don was wonderful and the price was reasonable. It was a fun experience for everyone.

-Gordon

It was so wonderful to get family photos for my parent’s 50th Anniversary! The pictures turned out great and Don was so very patient in dealing with the big personalities in our group!

-Kim

We chose to get professional photos done on our 10th anniversary day rather than spending 3 times the amount of pictures on a vow renewal service. We are both glad we made the decision we did!! Don met us at our cabin on time which definitely impessed us since it is difficult to find even with GPS lol. Don is a super nice guy and loves what he does. We never at any time felt rushed. We went to 3-4 different spots to take pics. One of which my wife thought about afer we were all done and Don was packed up. No big deal Don said lets go do it!! The only negative part of the whole experience was choosing the pics that we wanted to purchase. They were all awesome so we spent alot of time choosing. Again Don was very patient and helpful. We would highly recommend D&P Photo Service if your thinkin about getting pictures taken while visiting Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge/Sevierville area. Way cheaper than most photographers, no sitting fee, time limits, pose limits etc. We got 18 pictures which one was a free 8×10 for $130 dollars. We would have been willing to pay $230 for the experience again. Thanks Don for a great day and experience. Hope you enjoy the McDonalds gift card 🙂 We will definitely get pics again on our next visit!!

-Rickey and Adrianne

Don was a pleasure to work with and did an excellent job with our large family. He lead us to beautiful locations that made fantastic photo scenery. His pricing was very affordable and a great value. Each member in our family of 25 was particularly impressed with the photographs taken. Great photos! He returned our disc of photos and freer photo in record time. Thank you Don!

-Charlotte

We were so happy to have Don take our pictures! Don was so patient with us, and we enjoyed spending the time with him. The photos we had taken are great, and the price was great too! Thank you so much, we will definitely call again on our next trip down!
