Absolutely wonderful experience. Not only did we dress up but we also got a lesson into the picture process. Definitely recommend it and will be returning.

“Fun and educational!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2014 via mobile

Tish was fantastic. Explained the old time process for the wet plates and well worth the price. The photos turned out amazingly real looking. Plus, we enjoyed the whole experience and learned a lot. Great costumes to select. Highly recommend!

“Couldn't ask for a better experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014

Professional and very courteous. My friend and I had a great time dressing up and getting our photo taken. I recommend this to anyone looking to have an "Old Time" photo taken. Prices were great and they were very accommodating.

“Wonderful Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2013

Victorian Photography is absolutely fantastic! Del and Tish were extremely friendly and professional, and I couldn't have asked for a more wonderful experience. Not to mention the photograph came out great! I'm definitely coming back here again, and highly recommend others to check this place out.

“Fun, informative, and unique experience.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2013 via mobile

Tish and Del are incredibly friendly and personable. The photography session was educational, fun, and really interesting. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and left with an awesome souvenir - a unique portrait, using wet plate photography. We'd definitely go back!
