You get more than a cool photo when you visit the Victorian Photography studio. We expected to be hurried through the process but we found the opposite to be true. Tish took the time to set us up the way we wanted then took the time to thoroughly explain the process. Tish was fun to work with and she has... More

I remember doing an old time pic at Cedar Point as a teenager & wanted to do something like that again. This was so much fun! My husband was unsure at first, just going along for my sake. I went in to get dressed & hubby was pleasantly surprised at how quick the lady had me dressed & how I... More

This was by far our favorite thing we did in Gettysburg. Our family of 5 with 2 teenagers and one 10yr old boy loved dressing up and learning about the clothes and customs of the people during the Civil War.

Husband was pretty hesitant about this. He was pretty much pacifying me. We were in and out in a half hour. That included both of us getting dressed. (Which was over our own clothes) We were put at ease as soon as we entered and it continued as we were photographed. We chose the digital and were able to pick... More

What an amazing place! My wife talked me into getting pictures done while in Gettysburg. I really did not want to do it. But she is the women so I reluctantly went along with the idea. Boy am I glad I did! Not only was the picture amazing, but the prices are fair and the couple who owns it were... More

We just had the basic digital package, but it was such fun. Our 16 yr old son said it was the highlight of our trip. The picture came out amazing. Tish asked lots of questions beforehand to see what we wanted in a picture and matched each of us perfectly and made us feel like family.
