Not only did we get to dress up and pose we also got a history lesson about the photography and how pictures were develop back then as this is how it is still done in this very quaint shop. Loved the experience. We were referred to a restaurant across the street while we waited for our pictures. Would love to... More

What else can I say besides that my wife and I have visited Gettysburg 3 times, we have stopped at this studio for our pictures 3 times, and we have been very happy 3 times. Both the photographer and his wife are very professional and nice people. I can't imagine going anywhere else for a picture.

I surprised my mother with an authentic Victorian wet-plate photograph during our recent trip to Gettysburg. I called 3 weeks in advance to book my appointment and spoke with the owner, Tish, who's positively warm personality made my anticipation even greater! During our appointment we never felt rushed. Tish carefully coordinated our clothing and accessories and styled our hair all... More

My husband saw the ad for Victorian Photograpghy on trip advisor. I expected it to be a rushed experience with a photographer that was just there to collect money. I was very wrong! The couple that owns this business are very knowledgable and so down to earth! They made our experience very delightful and definitely created a memory I will... More

My wife and I visited the Photo studio in September as part of a larger tour of the States. We had tried to pre-book online but the system wouldn’t allow for non-US addresses to be input. It was a simple matter of emailing the details and we got a quick reply confirming our booking. When we arrived we were warmly... More

The Victorian Photo Studio is housed in an eponymous two story house crackling with period atmosphere. The husband (front desk) and wife (photographer) team were very friendly. We were taking a mini-vacation for our 40th anniversary and ordered the top of the line wet plate 5x7 tintype for about $70. This was about half of what I expected to spend.... More
