“Simply unbelievable!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2012

In 2011 while visiting Gettysburg P.A. my children wanted an old-time photo done to give their mom for mother's day, I was none to hip on the idea due to a bad experience in the past, than the kids said lets look there ( victorian photography studio ) so we walked in and found it very interesting. After talking with the very friendly and informative young lady at the counter we decided to give it a try, all I can say is everyone who received a copy of or has seen the photo as well as myself and children were extremely impressed by it, which brings us to the present experience, 2012 which was just as pleasant if not more so than our first. Kuddos to the staff, their help and experience made it a most enjoyable experience. We are already planning our next trip.

“What a great experience!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2012

We had our family picture taken here April 20th, 2012. And let me tell you it was one of the best experiences in my life. And now we have a picture to remember this great experience. Our family portrait was a picture of my husband as a Union General, myself and our two little boys, ages 4 & 1. The staff worked so well with the kids. Its amazing that they did not have to take many photos because they managed to get my kids to cooperate. I truly recommend this experience to anyone traveling to Gettysburg. Kudos to Victiorian Photography Studio!! Keep up the great work! :-)

“Loved this experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

This place rocked! They are very professional and give you a great education on tin types while you are there. My hubby and I had a great time being dressed up. My husband is also a photographer, so he loved chatting with them about their studio, lighting, etc.
I was just loving my temporary hoop skirt! The tin type is so authentic. What a wonderful memory!
