Fun!

It was a lot of fun. The kids enjoyed it. Just under 50 dollars for the four of us. We didn't purchase any extras. Fun vacation keepsake.

My parents were visiting and we were walking along when we came across this location - they took some photos that were awesome!! They were so excited about the pics that they paid for a border around the picture then paper frames with borders... why offer both? I was not present when all of this happened. Needless to say, if... More

It was a very enjoyable experience! Lots of costumes to choose from, very friendly staff, and they are very helpful in creating the photos. Yes, it is a little pricey, but come on - it's a niche market, what do you expect? I completely recommend!

The staff was so friendly and fun. The backgrounds are cute and the outfits are so nice. My fiance and I did flapper girl/gangster and southerbell/victorian gentleman. It was fun and one girl there (she wears a Christina shirt but her name isn't Christina) she was so much fun and a great photographer!

If you are coming to visit Virginia Beach, even if you live here, it is right of passage to have some photos done at Old Time Photos. It's cheesy, it's fun, and well, you need some. I have a bunch from years ago and recently took my kids. Always a good time!
