My fiance is really into antique photography and has been collecting all sorts of Ambrotypes and Daguerreotypes over the past few years. He had been talking about getting and ambrotype (glass plate) done for quite sometime and we finally decided to do it this past weekend and let me say I'm SO GLAD we chose Del and Tish. We were...

It was as much fun preparing for the photograph as it was seeing the finished product. Tish is absolutely delightful and a nineteenth-century stylist extraordinaire! She gives you a choice of dresses, and pins and accessorizes your outfit in seconds, right down to the clip-on earrings. We opted for the wet plate photography session. It costs a little more, but...

Our family has been twice to Gettysburg, and this is a must do when you visit, the owners are great! The pictures are so real looking. Like they were taken from the era. Great pictures from great people!

My husband, daughter and I opted for the wet plate photo. Tish was very nice and made us feel comfortable immediately. She picked out lovely outfits and answered all of our questions. We learned what it was like to have a photograph taken during the 1860s, how it felt to wear those clothes (hoop skirts bump into everything!), and how... More

This was on my bucket list of items to do--get an "old time" photo. We were so very comfortable getting into clothes. The lady that dressed us was very friendly and made the experience quite enjoyable. This should be on everyone's to-do list! Fun and a great memory.

Wow! That is the one word I kept repeating to myself while Tish, the photographer and studio operator, showed me her studio. You can dress up as nearly anything you want. I wanted to be a Confederate General, while my girlfriend wanted to be a Southern Belle. Tish was able to beautifully articulate what we, as the guest, wanted out... More

My boyfriend and I and two children got the wet plate picture. The entire experience was so pleasant. The photographer was informative and explained the entire process. I was a little worried they wouldn't have clothes in my size since I wear 14 and that is large for the olden days, but she found the perfect fitting dress for me... More
