Made an appointment as a surprise for our 14 year old granddaughter. The price was right....around $35. for a package with an 8x10, 5x7, and four wallets. My granddaughter's face lit up and she couldn't believe the transformation that occurred during the dressing process. I was allowed to snap a few pictures of her in the dressing area as the... More

I've now had two wet plate photos made here. The service is great, and it is a neat little history lesson as well. They dress you in authentic period attire, and they explain the photographic process to you. Most importantly, we love the results, and they look like real civil war era photos. We love it here! If you visit,... More

Absolutely awesome time. Fun for the whole family, and surprisingly educational. I wasn't expecting the history lesson when we made our reservation for the photo shoot. A++. The staff were awesome, Super friendly and fun. I personally didn't expect it to be so enjoyable. Definitely a must do. Next time we come, this will be on the list.

Had seen the backdrop about 20-25 yrs. ago and wanted my pic. taken with it. The owner said he remembered it and would dig it up for me. Whole experience of getting a wetplate tintype was something. Am very pleased with the outcome. Price was good.(5x7 plate-$74. incl. tax)

Send yourself back 150 years with these skilled professionals who do what they do well skillfully and efficiently. Great variety of costumes and lots of fun. Make an appointment as they are very much in demand.

This was by far the HIGHLIGHT of our Gettysburg trip! Tish made our visit so wonderful. It felt so nice to get dressed up in the beautiful Civil War era dress, AND getting my hair done was just the icing on the cake. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
