Have you ever pictured yourself in a different era? Now you can. Step through the doors of Grandpa’s Antique Photo Studio, nestled in Cavendish, and in minutes you’ll be transported into the past and transformed into an authentic character of your choice.
The studio has thousands of “quick-change” costumes, hats and props – from the Old West, the Roaring 20s, Victorian Era, Pirates, Military and Mounties, Southern Belle and Plantation Squire – to fit any shape, age or size.
Take center stage on one of the 18 full-scale sets including a Pirate Ship, Horse Stables, Roaring 20s Speakeasy Bar, Bugsy’s Barber Shop, a 1928 Gangster Getaway Car, and 1911 NWNP Jail, to name but a few. And have a professional photographer and costumier not only ensure a quality portrait, but a pleasant and often humorous experience as well.
Staff will make sure you have a fun old time, as much as they enjoy advising and helping you.
Looking for an authentic engagement shoot, wedding, boudoir, bachelor, or baby announcement – this attraction caters to all, and you will leave with images (and memories) to treasure for a lifetime.
Portraits are finished on the spot in your choice of either full colour, old time sepia, black/white, or aged color, and you can choose a matching frame, or even have the photo reprinted.
Grandpa’s Antique Photo Studio is open seasonally May (Victoria Day weekend) to October (Thanksgiving) from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. with extended hours of 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. June through September (Labour Day).
