You would be doing yourself a disservice to miss this wonderful opportunity to see yourself on an original tin type or wetplate photograph. The process is interesting and long forgotten by most, but certainly worth learning about. The owners are absolutely charming and a joy to work with; we stayed much longer than our appointment secured simply talking with them. They enjoy their work and are a testament that America still thrives on old fashioned values.

Highly recommended. Splurge on the largest tin type or wetplate and oil painting. We did and have not regretted it!

My wife and I were on Vacation and decided to get some old time photos taken. The staff there was extremely friendly and helpful. The product is very well done and at a very reasonable price I highly recommend this as a must stop.

My husband and I made a stop here this past weekend while we were in Gettysburg celebrating our anniversary. It is a tradition on our family to get an old photo done everywhere we go on vacation. This place is by far the best we've experienced. The owners and staff were so personable and we truly enjoyed our experience. On top of the wonderful staff, they make a real effort to try to create the most authentic period photo with a wide variety of costumes and knowledge of the era. Of all the old photos we have from our vacations, the one we received from this studio instantly became our favorite. We can't wait to come back again on our next trip to Gettysburg!!

My wife and I were photographed for our 26th Anniversary. Tish and Del (owners), are so friendly. We enjoyed every minute of the experience. Their clothing and costumes were of great quality and the photographs were as well. Our children and their families can't wait to get a family photo done. We will definitely go back soon. Make sure you don't miss this opportunity in Gettysburg.
