My boyfriend and I were able to something I had always wanted to do on previous visits to Gettysburg but never had the chance. The whole experience, including the history behind the outfits we were wearing, was simply wonderful!

Trish gives you a fantastic time with unparalleled results and service. Didn't think this would be so much fun. She dresses you in period clothing, explains the whole process, poses you and produces a wonderful picture. Do the old time wet plate picture! So much more realistic.

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
