Wedding and engagement portrait sessions in tintype are particularly fun! Tintypes last basically forever. Knowing that these plates will be handed down to their future children, and looked at in amazement by their future grandchildren and great-grandchildren, gives these sessions a particularly magical quality. Wet Plates from the civil war, barring any physical damage, look exactly the same today as they did in the 1860s.
Many congratulations to Melody and Quentin who visited my studio a couple of weeks ago. They are a gorgeous couple getting married this fall. I had the honor of creating with them a tintype they plan to use in their wedding announcements. It turned out great! And let's be honest here, there is something about tassels and a cowboy hat that just makes everything better.
Are you going to be near Denver or Boulder prior to your wedding?? Stop by the studio for an engagement portrait session with Colorado's premier wet plate tintype portrait photographer . We can shoot indoors with studio lights like this shot, or outdoors under the pine trees with natural light.
