The Victorian photography studio was a must for my family's vacation in Gettysburg. After all the great reviews on Tripadvisor, I was sure we wouldn't be disappointed. The owner was so nice and friendly, we were so comfortable. The selection of period clothes allowed us to create the vintage look we were hoping for. Our wet plate photograph will be... More

I had found this studio upon searching things to do for our trip to Gettysburg. While many of these types of photographers popped up in the area, Victorian Photography Studio immediately stood out to me - upon reading further I realized why. This wasn't just edited digital photos, they looked like the real deal because they ARE the real deal.... More

We came here as a birthday present for a friend. No one would ever guess this as a surprise! It was simple to get dressed and what fun to have a photograph taken. Recommend for any occasion! Families of all kinds, friends... The owners are very friendly and make this easy! (Women: wear a halter/sportsbra! But don't worry, you keep... More

My fiance is really into antique photography and has been collecting all sorts of Ambrotypes and Daguerreotypes over the past few years. He had been talking about getting and ambrotype (glass plate) done for quite sometime and we finally decided to do it this past weekend and let me say I'm SO GLAD we chose Del and Tish. We were...

It was as much fun preparing for the photograph as it was seeing the finished product. Tish is absolutely delightful and a nineteenth-century stylist extraordinaire! She gives you a choice of dresses, and pins and accessorizes your outfit in seconds, right down to the clip-on earrings. We opted for the wet plate photography session. It costs a little more, but...

Our family has been twice to Gettysburg, and this is a must do when you visit, the owners are great! The pictures are so real looking. Like they were taken from the era. Great pictures from great people!

My husband, daughter and I opted for the wet plate photo. Tish was very nice and made us feel comfortable immediately. She picked out lovely outfits and answered all of our questions. We learned what it was like to have a photograph taken during the 1860s, how it felt to wear those clothes (hoop skirts bump into everything!), and how... More

This was on my bucket list of items to do--get an "old time" photo. We were so very comfortable getting into clothes. The lady that dressed us was very friendly and made the experience quite enjoyable. This should be on everyone's to-do list! Fun and a great memory.

The photos of my granddaughters will bring many years of happy memories. The costumes were period perfect and the photographer brought out the best in the girls.
