Here's a little story about our store
We've been here 30 years or more
We don't make you heavy
We don't make you small
We don't make you anything at all
Just a costume; a hat and a gun
A laugh or two; it's just for FUN!


Doc and Jess have owned the store for more than 40 years, and have been collecting vintage artifacts the entire time. Our costumes, hats, and props are original or authentic reproductions of the Victorian Era, Civil War, Roaring 20's, and the Old West. Become a character from the past at Olde Tyme Photography!

Come meet Tony, a wonderfully witty African Grey Parrot. He has worked at the store for 21 years, almost as long as the owner! Although he only cuddles with his mom, he enjoys talking to everyone who comes in the shop.
Here are a few things to listen for:

- hi buddy
- want some kisses?
- Go broncos!
- wanna go to work?
- Beep Beep
- does the bird talk?

Should I bring my own clothes/accessories?

Can I make an appointment?

Can you service large groups?

Do you have my size?

Can I bring my dog?

Yes! We love dogs! However, dogs don’t always love our camera flash. Bring in your dog’s favorite treat and we will do our best to help them feel relaxed and happy. If they are too skittish though, be prepared take some photos without them. 

We can photograph up to 13 people at one time. If your group consists of 7 or more people, we ask that you arrive before 3:00 PM, and that men either wear black pants or jeans. Large group sessions usually take at least an hour if not more, so leave yourself plenty of time. We also require a minimum purchase of $60 worth of merchandise in addition to your sitting fee.

Yes we do! In almost every style, we have costumes sized for babies up to plus size adults. Our costumes are open back and are tailored with ties, so they will fit most men and women. Always feel free to call us and we can address any concerns. 

If you have some old time garments you’d like to show off, then yes! If not, no worries. We have everything you’ll need!

We can make a reservation for a group larger than 6 people with a non-refundable down payment of the sitting fee ($10 a person). All other groups we take on a walk-in basis. We can take larger groups as walk-ins if you arrive at least an hour and a half before close. We stop taking smaller groups half an hour before close. During the busy season we may need to put you on our waiting list and call you when your group is up.
