I have been going to this photography shop for 5 years. The first time I walked in the door, I asked “Why should I come to you instead of your competition across the street?” Del’s answer was “I don’t know, you tell me”. He didn’t say a single bad thing about the shop across the street. Since then, I’ve had... More

Owner is friendly and knowledgeable. A great experience from start to finish. Was a little nervous about the experience beforehand but that quickly faded. Highly recommended!

This is our 3rd time coming here. The new owner and his employee (sorry, I didn't catch their names) are very friendly and knowledgeable. My kids felt at ease and enjoyed dressing up and taking a picture. Also, you can't beat his prices, the best on town. Stop in, you won't be disappointed. Next time we are in Gettysburg, we... More

Just got a wet plate and digitals done. It was not only fun (and high quality!) but it was informative on the process of photography of the Victorian Era. I'd highly recommend, worth every penny!

We were only in town for the day, so I was glad we were able to get in for a session. The owner and his wife were very personable, and professional. There was a great selection of clothes and we had plenty of help getting ready. The owners kids were in the shoppe that day, which was great since our... More

My Civil War reenacting group has become very familiar with Dan and his family and their amazing photography. This past February we went up to Gettysburg and had two wet-plates done. One was a group of 10 and the second was a group of 3. Both pictures came out spectacular- clear as day and just liked they were taken in... More

My boyfriend and I visit Gettysburg at least once a year. We have had photos taken at another location in Gettysburg prior to visiting Victorian Photography Studio. All I can say is we have found the holy grail of photography studios in Gettysburg! Dave and Amy were so helpful, kind and informative. They truly went above and beyond in ensuring... More

We had digital photography done and are very pleased with the photos. There were five of us - two adults and three children. It was so much fun to dress up in period clothes. The owners were very friendly and did a wonderful job. I highly recommend this place.
