My wife and I booked a session at the Victorian Photography Studio and are very pleased with the results. Not only are we pleased, but everyone to whom we have shown the photos taken are thrilled with the results. Thank you staff, you did very well on what we know was a very busy Rememberence Day.

Brimming with excitement by surprising my significant other, I found this studio to be 100% quality. I was a litttle surprised at how quick it was but this was more an indicator of the efficiency of the operation. Of course, I did want to spend hours trying on all the dresses but I would have likely become overwhelmed and needed... More

It was an awesome session. Enjoyed every minute. Plan on going again to get a wet plate done!!! I can't say enough about the staff they were so welcoming and helpful and I love how the photographer dressed us because I had absolutely no idea what to wear or how to even put it on. She was awesome.

My wife and I had a we plate photo taken and we were very impressed with the result. A lot of time and care was taken in preparing us for the photo and explaining the process for the production of the plate photo. Highly recommend it as a unique souvenir of a historical location

What a neat idea this was! My boyfriend wasn't excited when I first mentioned it but by the time our appointment came, he was stoked! He was an officer, and I got to wear a fancy ballgown! We had a great time with the owners. A MUST DO for our next visit!

This was such a fun and interesting experience.Tish, one of the owners, was so sweet and really made our visit special. My boyfriend was a union officer and I got to dress up in a beautiful gown. I love looking at our picture (do the 5x7 wet plate - worth it!) and our family members couldn't get over how "1800's"... More

I had my picture take and was I surprised how the picture came out. What a great treasure for my family. I was dressed in the style of the 1860's citizen.
