“Great Photograph!”
Reviewed 30 May 2012

When I arrived at the shop shortly before my appointed time, I was greeted by a young man in period clothing. I did all the necessary paperwork and payments ahead of time, and then we were ready to head into the photography room. They did a great job helping me pick out the perfect uniform and accessories. I decided to get a wet plate done, and so they spent time explaining the history of the process, and each step as they went along. The whole thing only took 30 minutes, with the exception of the drying process which took another hour. However, I was able to come back the next day to pick up my photo since I did not want to wait. I have already recommended Victorian Photography Studio to several of my friends, and would suggest that you add this to your list of things to do while in Gettysburg.

“This is a must do on your trip!”
Reviewed 29 May 2012 via mobile

We are a plus sized same sex couple and we were nervous about the clothes not fitting and maybe of them being weird by us wanting to hold hands or lock arms. They were so nice and professional. We had so much fun being dressed up! I would strongly encourage everyone to visit this husband and wife team! Fantastic!

“Wonderful!”
Reviewed 25 May 2012

Our weekend visit to PA was absolutely wonderful & having our first ever professional photograph taken by Victoria Photography was quite the treat. There was plenty of excitement & fun before the photo was taken as well as when it was time to pick them up. We couldn't wait to get home & find a place for our new photograph, we looked quite the part, including our 5 month old. Thank You Victorian Photography, we hope to see you guys again soon!
