Professionnal, respectful, dedicated service. We had more than we paid for, that is for sure. We asked for the medium size historical tin plate photography of our family, which included a 5 weeks old infant. As we could expect it, the baby wasn't cooperative which can be a problem, since the picture requires everybody standing still in front of the... More

I can't say enough good things about Victorian Photography Studio and the time we spent with Tish (one of the owners). We had read great reviews about this place, but our expectations were still exceeded after during our photo session! My husband and I were celebrating our first anniversary in Gettysburg and wanted a fun portrait as a keepsake. I... More

This was definitely one of THE best things my friends and I did while staying in Gettysburg. Everyone gets fitted out perfectly in period clothing to suit their features. The staff were incredibly friendly and personable - they have all sorts of humorous and interesting anecdotes. You definitely feel right at home and in this place. Multiple photos are taken... More

I took an impromptu trip to Gettysburg with my two daughters (ages 2 and 10) and it was rainy and dreary when we arrived. We decided to get pictures done so we went to Victorian Photography Studio. I could not have been happier. The couple who owns the place are so genuine and kind. The wife dressed the girls and... More

Admittedly I was somewhat hesitant but glad that we opted for this. Great fun and a souvenir that will last a lifetime. Tish and her husband (owners) were delightful! We had lots of fun and strongly recommend this unforgettable fun experience. Either call ahead or go online for a reservation. As the tourist season approaches they become booked up. So,... More

We had a great time. Photo turned out excellent. My teen girls enjoyed dressing up. The military uniform was authentic.

Dressing up was so much fun, and the photos turned out great! My friend's 9 year old sister loved it. I would recommend it to anyone, and I'll definitely be going back if I'm ever up that way again.

We have been to the photo studio twice now. ALways a great experience. The photo quality is fanatstic. You can even have one of the old tintype photos done, for more realism. They also give you some historical facts about the clothing as you are getting ready for your shoot. Very friendly staff.

My husband and I had such a good time 3 years ago that we decided to do it again. We had a blast this time around as well! Both times, we went with the wet plate photos. I showed a few people at work today and they thought it was a real picture from the 1800s! They did not realize... More

The whole experience as great! We got a lesson in period clothing and how to do wet plate photography. My 10 year old twin girls were fascinated with the process since all they know is digital and couldn't fathom something not instant. Our photo is great and will be our Christmas card.
