Events and Pop-ups 


We're thrilled to share the tintype process and make portraits at events. Here are few recent events where River City Tintype has held portrait sessions. We are excited to talk about other ways to work with you and make the tintype process part of your next event.

Tintype Portraits can be a great addition to events such as: 


-Family Gatherings 

-Birthday Celebrations


-Holiday Parties 

To book a pop-up, we will need to know:  

  • If there will be access to water and electricity

  • Promotional information for social media posts

Please keep in mind: 

  • Two hours must be available for set up. 

  • Breakdown will take roughly 1 hour. 

  • Walk-ins can be available between scheduled appointments time depending. 

  • Making a tintype takes about 20 minutes, so participants will book one 20-minute time slot for each portrait.

  • Arrangements must be made before the event about returning the plates to the customers. It can take anywhere between 1-4 days to wax and complete them.
