I don't think a trip to Gettysburg would be complete without visiting this studio. The people were extremely pleasant and accommodating and the process was quick and professional but never felt rushed. We enjoyed the experience immensely and give them the highest recommendation without hesitation.

Had a wet plate done of my daughter it simply was amazing. The knowledge and all the costumes they have make it hard to decide what picture you want to do. Will not go anywhere else definitely going back for more pictures of the family.

Our second time here, and we loved it! Photo came out great and the experience is so interesting. We loved dressing up and talking about the history but watching the wet plate is by far the coolest. A must do!

We decided on a civil war period photo while walking around the shops in Gettysburg. The price for a photo package attracted us to this place. They were able to fit us in latter that day. It was more than a photo, it was an...More

I saw pictures of small children in the period clothes, so they must have them.
