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!
