Just got a wet plate and digitals done. It was not only fun (and high quality!) but it was informative on the process of photography of the Victorian Era. I'd highly recommend, worth every penny!

My husband and I had fun dressing up in period costume and watching the very intricate process of wet plate photography being developed. We ordered the full package on tin with frame. I definitely recommend the experience.
