Heirloom Tintype Portraits

“My husband and I had our tintype portraits done by Craig earlier this year. Excellent experience, great for anyone with an appreciation for art, photography, history or science. Fascinating to see the images appear through the chemical process. Highly recommended as a great activity for friends or a memorable date idea.”
