“Great Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

Next to the Battlefield tour this was my favorite experience we had in Gettysburg. The owners are very friendly, polite and knowledgeable. The pictures we had taken are a wonderful keepsake. I enjoyed my experience at this studio immensely. I would definitely recommend having your pictures taken at Victorian Photography Studio. Wonderful! Do make a reservation in advance. They were completely booked the day we visited. I booked about 1 1/2 wks before our trip and did not have any problems. The length of time it takes depends on your package. We had a digital pic taken and it probably took a little over a half hour and our pics were ready in 20 mins. Just do it. You will be glad you did.

“Amazing Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

We loved this place. The owners treated us great and gave us tons of recomendations for in town. Our 2 girls loved getting dressed and having our picture done. The costumes they had for our entire family were amazing. We will for sure be coming back here.

“Great experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013 via mobile

We had so much fun doing a family portrait. MOST IMPORTANT THING TO KNOW IS MAKE AN APPOINTMENT. Don't be disappointed if you just walk in and they can't take you, this isn't their fault, it's lack of planning on your part if you don't make an appointment. I knew my 6 year old wouldn't be able to sit still for wet plate so we opted for the digital. It only took a few minutes for my daughter and I to get dressed and have our hair done, when we came out my husband and son were ready for us. They take the time to thoughtfully pose you and coordinate outfits so that everything comes out perfect. Thanks for a family portrait I'll cherish forever!

“Great Price and Good Quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Very good service at a very good price. Look for coupons to improve the value. If you arrive at off times, there is no wait and you can walk out with your photos is 20 minutes!

“Great Gettysburg experi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

As a photographer myself, I was very happy with the experience.
The staff were very professional and the studio had loads of costumes to chose from.
The price and finished product were a great value, my grandchildren had a wonderful time and looked great.
If you are looking for a period photography experience this is the place to go, we had this done at another studio a few years ago and there was no comparison to the Victorian Photography Studio.
Go you will love it..
