What an amazing place! My wife talked me into getting pictures done while in Gettysburg. I really did not want to do it. But she is the women so I reluctantly went along with the idea. Boy am I glad I did! Not only was the picture amazing, but the prices are fair and the couple who owns it were... More

My family stopped in again. Third time and more to come. A must stop, definitely! Second time for the wet plate experience. My sons are 9 and11. The standing still not a problem.

We just had the basic digital package, but it was such fun. Our 16 yr old son said it was the highlight of our trip. The picture came out amazing. Tish asked lots of questions beforehand to see what we wanted in a picture and matched each of us perfectly and made us feel like family.

My father and I had a wet plate made at this studio, and we were very pleased with the results. When we arrived for our appointment, Tish took time dressing in historically accurate clothing and explaining why someone of our ages would be wearing each piece. I have hard to manage hair, and she even managed to nicely style it.... More

Tish was fantastic. She assembled our party of 4 which included our very active 3 year old grandson and captured a classic photo. We picked this location based on trip advisor reviews and we are so glad we did. Great experience that we would do again. Lots of fun. Thank you Tish!

I can't say enough about the experience we had with Victorian Photography. The staff is helpful and accommodating. JUST ABSOLUTELY AWESOME! IMPORTANT - MAKE RESERVATIONS! We will be back and we will do this again. I want to do the glass plate process next time.

Traveling with another couple, we took time to have photos taken. Glad we did. We had lots of laughs and the pictures are a great keepsake. The owner and her assistant were so much fun AND helpful with providing the package that worked for us.

Made a last minute appt to have our pictures taken dressed up in civil war attire. The couple who runs this place are just awesome to deal with. Very upbeat.. very professional. We were both dressed in less than 10 mintues. The picture came out better than we could have expected. We had a great time. We were in and... More
