All portrait sessions require a $50 deposit to secure the shoot date. The deposit will be applied to any tintype(s) you wish to purchase on the day of the shoot. If you need to cancel, please do so one week in advance of the shoot date as we custom-make the chemicals for each session. In the event of a last-minute cancellation or no-show, the deposit is non-refundable. There is a $100 shoot fee, in addition to the cost of each tintype, for children under 13, pets and groups of more than three. Due to the limitations of this process and the size of our studio we cannot accommodate tintypes of more than five adults.
Each photo is a handmade, one-off piece and takes about a half-hour to make (don't worry, you won't have to hold still for that long!), so the length of the shoot will largely be dictated by how many tintypes you would like. Because this is a private, personalized photoshoot, we like to make several photos so that you can choose your favorites, but you're only obligated to pay for the ones you'd like to keep.
If you haven't already, please take a gander at our FAQs for details about cost/what to wear/etc.
