Everyone was so nice and professional. If you are looking for an authentic civil war era photo, this is the place to go.

We had a wonderful experience at this studio. Not only were the owners extremely nice they went out of their way to make sure we were pampered and comfortble with our experience. The clothes fit perfect, not like most costume type outfits. These were the real thing. Both my husband and o felt as if we were in 1863. They not only help you dress but the owners wife also does the ladies hair. The props used were very authentic and they take time to make sure you are happy with the pose before the shot. Also each step of the photo making is explained. I can't say enough about how happy we were with the entire experience. I would highly recommend using this studio

My son and I had a tin type made during our March visit. We were both amazed at the process and time taken to ensure that we had a great experience. The tin type is EXCELLENT and will be treasured as a family heirloom. The information and time taken by Mr.Gibson was greatly appreciated. Not only did we have an enjoyable time, but we became more informed on how this type of photography works. We will definately return!

The photography was quick and professional. And learning about the chemical process was an extra treat!

While not inexpensive, given the work that has to be done, this is an experience that shouldn't be missed. My portrait looks like it was taken during the War. Mr. Gibson is a consummate professional- working diligently to give your picture the right look.
