“So fun!”
Reviewed 9 April 2012

My husband and I went here and got an old picture take of ourselves...SO awesome! They do it just like they did in that era, with the same camera, and the same method of picture development. The owner gives you a lesson and lets you see the whole process taking place. They dress you up VERY authentically, and do the lady's hair, etc. Definitely would recommend this.

“Could not be happier with this experience!”
Reviewed 9 April 2012

Once again, the reviews on Trip Advisor did not steer me wrong!
Sounds cliche, but this really was so much fun for my whole family, which is saying a lot when you have teenagers. All of us walked out with big smiles on our face after this terrific experience.
After two days of exploring Gettysburg and immersing ourselves in its history, having the opportunity to dress in period clothes and getting our portrait done was the perfect ending to our trip.
And I can't say enough good things about the owners, Tish and Dell, they are as professional as they are genuinely kind and friendly.

Great picture taken, son later took to school for history and showed the glass print. His taecher made sure it did not get broken though it was very old.

“Awesome Wet plate”
Reviewed 6 April 2012

Their attention to detail and personal "one on one'' expirience.

The Wet plate portion of the day is what separates this place from your typical amusement part period photos.
