The owner waited on our family of four. She was very sweet and taught us a lot during the dressing and photo experience. Would highly recommend her. She books up so make an appointment.

We made an appointment for a wet plate photo for two. The owner was very sweet and even dressed myself and my boyfriend. They have a whole wardrobe! It was great! They use authentic headstands, and the best part is that the owner (and photographer) does the development of the wet plate right in front of your eyes. It takes... More

The entire experience from start to finish was A+ top notch! At first the wet plate/tintype process is explained, and there's nothing quite like eventually watching the photo appear before you almost as if magic. After being explained the process, and having to decide on Costumes, with some help from the owner, we sat down with stern face for 30... More

This was so much more than simply a photo shoot -- it was a truly memorable experience from start to finish! We got there a little early and had a chance to talk to some of the reinactors, who had been getting their photos taken in the session just before us. One of the guys had been in a few... More

This was a great experience for our family. The Studio provides clothes AND even help with modern women's hair. We learned about photography of the time and talked about what the look of the photo would be (in our case a young man getting ready to go to war). Remember to stay still! (our daughter is a little blurry) This... More

Wow what a fun experience! My older Son and Daughter in Law live in PA, the rest of us traveled from Columbus, Ohio! It's hard to get the "boys" together now with their full time jobs and living in different states but we managed a weekend getaway! This photo was a big part of a wonderful memory!! Tish and Patty...

They did a fantastic job on our picture and they were fun to be with. They were so friendly that it was like meeting up with old friends. We would definitely do it again!

My son and I are now immortalized on a wonderfully crafted period tintype as Major General Steve and Captain Alex (Union Officers!). The tintype photo is a prized "takeaway" from our visit to Gettysburg. The photographer was very patient and creative in outfitting the two of us. It was also fascinating to see the full end to end process, just... More

This was an amazing experience! We made a reservation the day we arrived but our toddler refused to participate in the photo so just my husband and I took a photo together. We rescheduled our family photos for 2 days later hopefully that our daughter would cooperate! We arrived early and the owners gave up their lunch hour to allow... More
