Victorian Photography Studio, Gettysburg

5.0
#2 of 110 in Fun & Games in Pennsylvania
Transport yourself to the Civil War era at Victorian Photography Studio. With the studio's vast selection of costumes and props, as well as expert guidance, you can assume the guise of a 19th-century individual from any walk of life. The studio modifies digital photography to give the pictures and prints a vintage appearance or make them look like oil paintings. You can even opt for a wet plate photo, taken using the original 19th-century technique--which also lets you see how photos were made then. Booking a session online is best. By using our Gettysburg tourist route planner, you can arrange your visit to Victorian Photography Studio and other attractions in Gettysburg.

    I visited this studio a couple years ago and had a pic taken and I must say they are a class act. Had fun while getting ready for and taking the pic. Going back Monday for a second visit.

    We come here every year with a tour group and they do a wonderful job! They process our group of 90 in 9 groups of 10 and have each group move through in 20 minutes or less. I am always amazed with how well they do and how sweet they are. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone!

    Best place in Gettysburg to get your image taken on a wet plate like it was historically done. Management here is friendly and professional with a deep knowledge of the history of their craft.

Where to stay in Gettysburg

Though Gettysburg offers plenty of lodging options to suit every visitor's budget, remember that you must reserve your room at least a few months ahead of time if you plan to attend the popular battle reenactments. Many inns in the heart of town offer both a sense of history and many modern amenities, including exercise facilities and both indoor and outdoor pools. You can also choose to stay at a comfortable hotel just northwest of the area's historical battlefield complex, located only minutes from downtown.
