  • My fiance and I just got engaged while on vacation in PA. The owner, RJ, was very accommodating and posed us perfectly to show off our ring. He makes sure every aspect of the shot is perfect and treated us with respect. He knows what he's doing! Definitely recommend for a timeless piece of art!
  • My name is Melissa. I've wanted a family portrait done in this fashion for yrs. What luck I had that day in finding Gibson's! They use the exact 19th century methods, including the 1863 camera. My husband, grown sons and I had a beautiful haunting photo done, dressed in the style of the Union Irish Brigade. Great care was taken in the dress and hair! This is the real deal, not a modern impression enhanced by modern effects. I would like to give them a 10!!
  • Definitely one of the best places in town to get a old timey 1800's picture taken I'd suggest this to anyone going out to Gettysburg to at least visit this guy at least once you won't regret it! I was very pleased with the outcome!😃
  • A true professional. If you want an authentic experience and a tintype print made exactly like they were during the civil war - this is the place to be! This is not one of those places you get "old timey" photos done at the county fair. This is the real deal! Treat yourself and your loved one to this one of a kind experience and art.
