The owners of this studio are friendly, professional and very knowledgeable. This is not your dress up like a bank robber and barmaid ol timey picture. They use period clothing, furniture and accessories to give a nice recreation picture. We have been twice and were more than pleased both times.

My wife and I have never had an old-time photograph taken even though you see those places everywhere you go on vacation. Well, we decided to go on a short trip over to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, as we'd never been. We had a great trip and just as we were leaving to come home we saw the Victorian Photography Studio and... More

We wanted to do something unique and special for our two year anniversary as well as my girlfriend's first trip to Gettysburg. She mentioned how cool it would be if we could get an 'old time' photo in costume...but REALLY old time—like on tin. After a quick Google search I found Victorian Photography Studio. As a photographer myself, I was... More

I was in the area visiting and have always wanted to have my tintype taken. After reading reviews on here, I decided this was the place to go. Man, they didn't disappoint! I was somewhat early to my appointment and they took me anyway. Tish was incredibly friendly and explained the whole process to me while she was doing it,... More

Maybe it was late, but the girl acted like it was too much trouble and had the personality of wet cardboard. My son who is a civil war enthusiast had his own Civil War uniform to wear so she only had to supply the gun and hat. The price isn't bad, $20 for 2 5x7 photos (with one person) and... More

Every year we get family pictures taken in Gettysburg and this place has to be the BEST by far! With two young children we were nervous about getting a wet plate photo, but it turned out great! The staff is really terrific, friendly, and helpful! I cant wait to come back and get more. Also they have an amazing selection... More
