What a wonderful experience! The owner was so fun and full of information! The girl she had working with her was just so sweet! Would love to go back and do it again! We had the wet plate done and I thought it seemed like a rather expensive thing to do, but was I wrong! It was worth every penny!... More

Tish is so welcoming to her studio. She gives a "history" lesson on how wet plate photography works while setting up for your photo shoot. You can feel her passion in her Studio and in her quality of work. Her foundation of quality work and customer service is so powerful Thank you Tish for the wonderful experience.

This was one of the best experiences we had in Gettysburg. We had the wet plate photo done and she explained the entire process to us as well as let us watch while she prepared and developed the plate. There is a wide array of options for dress for both men and women including necklaces, clip-on earrings, and hats for... More

My family of 5 including a 5, 7, and 9 year old were very excited to have a wet plate photo done. We even practiced for staying still for the seconds that it takes to create it. Tish spent a lot of time dressing us and explaining the styles and customs of the day. It was also fun to see... More

I had seen the Duggers from TLC's 19 Kids and Counting visit this studio, and decided I had to include it in our 10 road trip. These amazing people were not only friendly, but so knowledgeable! They dressed us, did our hair, paid particular attention to detail (clip on earrings, necklaces, etc...). Each step was explained in detail, what chemicals... More

OK...so I am not into the whole dress-up photo thing. But when we decided to do a quick trip to Gettysburg, my husband was so excited about these civil war photos...he spent weeks growing out a beard. We arrived early thinking it might take extra time to dress , but they told us an hour would cover it so we... More
