A Record for Posterity

A photograph is a record. In the 21st century, photographs are ubiquitous, but the majority of them are unlikely to survive multiple generations. A wet-plate photograph is a special, long-lasting, physical record. Our clients come to us because they desire something different—an experience—and a memento of a specific time and place in their life.

A portrait session at Genesee Libby Studio is a unique, historical, educational, and memorable experience! It is a great way to commemorate a special day, landmark event, milestone, or stage in one's life. This makes us an excellent option when you are seeking a special gift.

Commemorate a wedding with wet-plate photography. You can arrange a shoot at our studio before or after the wedding day, or you can hire us to bring a darkroom and make tintypes on location at your wedding.

Have Darkroom, Will Travel

Genesee Libby Studio has a portable darkroom! This means we can come to you to photograph on location.  Make your next party or event a hit with our tintype photobooth.
