My husband and I had such a good time 3 years ago that we decided to do it again. We had a blast this time around as well! Both times, we went with the wet plate photos. I showed a few people at work today and they thought it was a real picture from the 1800s! They did not realize it was me right away. That's how authentic these pictures are. I'm posting all three pictures the couple photo was from 3 years ago and the singles are from this year.

The whole experience as great! We got a lesson in period clothing and how to do wet plate photography. My 10 year old twin girls were fascinated with the process since all they know is digital and couldn't fathom something not instant. Our photo is great and will be our Christmas card.

My boyfriend and I went down for the day. We thought it would be a fun thing to do. Everyone was really nice... AMAZINGLY NICE actually. We had a great time and told everyone about it. We will definitely come back in the future.

Our family took a trip to Gettysburg in March 2014. We had the wet plate photo done. It was amazing! Not only do you have the picture done. but you get a detailed explanation on the whole process. Tish was so awesome! She made it so educational and fun! Wish we had done this years ago! I recommend this to everyone!

we went to Gettysburg in May 2013, and we decided to get our pictures taken. He dressed us up in amazing dresses (and my husband got a union uniform) they turned out great! we got to see the whole process on how they were made, if you go to Gettysburg YOU HAVE TO DO THIS.
