Rap Battle at Old Tyme Vintage Photos.

You lace up your Adidas pumps and put on your sunglasses.  You can hear the crowd roar in the background as you practice your flow in front of a mirror in the hallway that connects to the alley where your next battle will be taking place.  The impromptu backstage area is cramped, but it’s got style.  “This is it.”  You think to yourself.

Like Marshall Mathers in 8 Mile, but 20 years earlier, you step out into an alleyway of screaming fans and raise your hands in the air, the undisputed rap battle champ of Nashville, the classic, the untouchable.  Your wide rim glasses, Kangol hat and thick gold chain say it all.  You are the FUNK MASTER.

You turn your back from where your opponent will be entering the alley and get revved up from some members of your posy and hear the crowd gasp.   You turn in horror and face your ultimate rival, rap genius of the century, the only power packed hip-hop assassin under the age  of 10, your own son!

At Old Tyme Vintage Photos, we specialize in play.  Our 1980’s Run DMC style outfits and spraypaint backdrop will take you and your family back to an age of hip-hop past and our family fun photographers will capture all of the silly moments you and your loved ones discover! 

Not interested in getting jiggy with it?  Old Tyme Vintage Photos also has cowboy and saloongirl outfits, as well as old west backdrops.  Have a hootin’ hollerin’ good time playing cowboys and outlaws, or laugh a little, cozying up next to your loved one in our old time bathtub with fake bubble cloth.

Or take your family back to Victorian England a la Marie Antionette and pose in classic portrait fashion like the aristocracy of yore. 

One thing’s certain, at Old Tyme Vintage Photos, we know how to do family fun photography.  If you live in Nashville or are visiting the Nashville area and are interested in tourist photography, contact us today!

True Grit at Old Tyme Vintage Photos

Tumbleweeds roll past a double-hinged saloon door as a little girl and her mother rush across a deserted street.  From the looks of the buildings, this wooden town was thrown up overnight.  Your stirrups hit the dirt road hard and kick up a cloud of dust around your well-worn cowboy boots.  Cautiously, you put your hand on your holster and cock your pistol.  The deputy standing by your side is only knee high and barely fits a cowboy hat, but you know he’s got your back.  And you know who’s on the other side of those double doors, and with him only comes trouble

Ever wonder what it would be like to take a trip back to the old west? At Old Tyme Vintage Photos, we’ve got you covered.  Our family fun photography studio has old western sets fun for people of all ages to make believe they’re cowboys and outlaws saloon girls or Western debutants.

The destination for Nashville tourist photography, especially for families and young people looking for loads of laughs and a souvenir photo to remember it all, the sepiatone old time photography at Old Tyme Vintage photos will leave you looking like a blast from the past.
