We have been coming here for years and were pleasantly surprised when we found out the place has new owners. The process is the same, but with some improvements - more costume choices, changing backgrounds, seasonal ideas. Dave and his assistant Elizabeth were welcoming, and...More

Contacted the studio a week before and shared an original battle picture we wanted recreated. They gathered all the costume, accessories, found the perfect site and made this one of our best photography experience. Thank you so much for all the attention to details

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!
