Del and Tish make this whole experience wonderful! Our picture came out great and we were very happy! They are masters of their craft. On a personal note, my husband was not feeling well with a diabetic problem and while I ran to get juice, they gave him a granola bar and took care of him while I was gone!... More

My 16 year old son and myself just became a Confederate foot soldier and General. Del and Tish (and their daughter) made the experience VERY friendly and enjoyable! It was very cool getting into the old school clothing and going back in time for a few minutes. Well worth the money. We got the digital package because it was a... More

We had a great experience with Victorian Photography. The couple who run it are very nice and they did a superb job. I was especially impressed that they had PLUS-sized dresses! Normally, a heavy woman cannot go to these kinds of studios and not be mortified because she's too big, but not only did the clothes fit, but they were... More

Brought my husband and three girls here for a fun family photo. They all protested but agreed afterward that it was a great experience and one we'll remember for years to come. Trish was terrific with my girls. Everything was clean and well cared for. Price was reasonable. We love our photo!

We went for a wet plate sitting. I was impressed in how quickly we were transformed! We had so much fun, and they were so flexible, we actually booked 2 additional wet plate sittings right then. So within a span of 2 hours, we had 3 different sittings, one change of clothing, and amazing keepsakes to remember our day out.... More
