Service Description

What do you create when you capture the present moment through a historical lens? A timeless and meaningful keepsake for the future. Don't miss this chance to develop a lasting treasure that immortalizes a moment shared with loved ones, or celebrates the beauty of being authentically yourself! What to expect: When you arrive for your appointment, photographer and ferrotype extraordinaire Megan Snook will set to work staging your shot, whether you're opting for a group image (up to 5 people), a more stylized individual portrait, or something in-between. Once you/your group and any props you've brought are in position, exposure only takes a brief moment. No need to stay frozen in place for several minutes! Megan will then develop the image on-site utilizing wet plate collodion processing. You'll have a front-row seat––figuratively and literally––to the modern implementation of this century-old process. Once your tintype is developed and ready for pickup, you'll have both an amazing artifact and a cool experience to reflect on! You'll also receive a digital copy of your image for safekeeping.
