Are you looking for that elusive family experience? One that’s fun for the whole family and all the friends? Old Time Photos are doubly perfect! Not only do you create special memories, but you’ll also have a photo to hang on the wall that will be a constant reminder of precious time spent together.
We have several sets to choose from: the back bar at the Capitol Saloon, the 1920s Tivoli Speakeasy, the western Pink Pony Saloon, or the Inter Ocean Victorian Parlor. Or create your own personalized experience, from a mixture of eras to Steampunk!
Emma’s provides a variety of costumes in a wide range of sizes, and of course the props to complete the appropriate atmosphere.
You’ll be immersed in a bit of history as you enjoy your Old Time Photo session. Just like our studio, and the history of our location, every photo tells a story. Emma is happy to help you create your story!
It’s the souvenir you "Had to Be There" for!
We feature cowboy, saloon girls, Victorian, and ‘20s experiences.
We’re here to help you create the souvenir you "Had to Be There" for!
History has always been a family passion, and we’ve tried to incorporate it into our studio experience, often including tours with our photoshoots.
Find us at the Historic Hynds Building, across from the Wrangler. Look for us in the Art Gallery entrance on Capitol Ave. Photos were taken at our version of Harry P. Hynds' circa 1888 Capitol Saloon, Tivoli Speakeasy, The Pink Pony Western set, or the Inter-Ocean Hotel Victorian Parlor. Costumes & props provided. Photos printed while you wait. Digital images are available. It's the Souvenir you HAD to be there for!
~ The history of Emma’s Old Time Photos ~
Emma’s Old Time Photos is a family-owned and operated studio. Morgan had the original concept, and her mom, Val, ran with it. Her dad, Dewey, helps out where he can, but his favorite role is walking advertisement.
In 2017, Emma’s began as a mobile studio, setting up in a variety of locations, but always preferring the Historic buildings of Downtown Cheyenne. In our early photos, you’ll find backdrops created at the Atlas Theatre, UPRR Depot, and the Plains Hotel. Emma’s participated in events at unique venues, such as a restored caboose, Fort D.A. Russell Days, the Old West Museum, a live concert in the historic Asher Building, and Super Day. Our signature constructed set, The Pink Pony Saloon, was used during our summers in the lobby of the Atlas Theatre as well as at the Laramie County Fair. Today it is in use at the Hynds.
Finding our first permanent home came in 2020 when we moved into an artist cooperative, known as Art @ the Hynds. We built a new set for the experience.
