hey, i'm anthony!

About 10 years ago, a friend of mine told me, “you take really nice pictures, why don’t you meet one of my friends?” Well, his friend happened to be Ricky— and that was it! Now I’ve been shooting here for 9 years and it’s been a pretty cool ride.

Pre-shooting, I was a hairstylist for 19 years. One thing I love about weddings is that we work on a timeline, but, we can go throughout the day where everything is not a set time. We go through the whole day and just have fun so it doesn’t’t feel like a time crunch. 

Aside from shooting, I love spending time with my family, hanging out with my kids, just having quiet time. With the hustle and bustle of wedding weekends and doing hair, sometimes its nice to just relax.


A little more about Anthony…






what some clients have said about working together

From start to finish Anthony and Cyndi were unbelievably comfortable to work with! Even on our chilly day in late September they kept us smiling and turned out some of the best shots we’ve ever seen! Anthony and Cindi were always loose and having fun and it allowed us to relax and enjoy the moments - would highly recommend!

From our engagement picture session to our wedding day, Anthony and his crew made us feel so at ease and comfortable. The whole day felt relaxed! Anthony took amazing pictures. We could not have been happier with our decision to pick Ricky Restiano Photography.

What can I say pictures are phenomenal, Anthony our photographer was the best. These are without a doubt the best wedding pictures I have ever seen.

We chose Anthony from Ricky Restiano Photography. We defintely made the best decision. From the moment we took our engagement pictures my husband and I knew we made the best choice. Anthony isn’t just an amazing photographer but he also makes you feel completely comfortable. Any time I had a question for the studio Dana and Nicole would answer all my emails same day. The day of the wedding was perfect Anthony and his assistant Justin fit right in. They made sure everything was perfect from where we took photos to making sure my veil was placed just right. I can’t thank you guys enough. We are so grateful that we had you to photograph our day.

My husband and I got married this past June and found Ricky Restiano Photography to be nothing short of INCREDIBLE! Anthony was our photographer and he was amazing to work with. He was very easy going and captured every moment from getting dressed to the very last dance. He was so accommodating to all of our needs on our special day. The shots Anthony took are breathtaking and will definitely allow us to relive our wedding day for the rest of our lives. Not only was Anthony easy to work with but all of the staff we had been in contact with for months was also very easy to work with and responded back to any of our thousand questions very quickly! We highly recommend you use Ricky Restiano Photography for your wedding!!!

TOP-NOTCH! BEST OF THE BEST! This was the first vendor we booked for our October 2015 wedding. We chose Anthony & Chris and we couldn’t have been happier! They are true artists and to work with such talent puts you right at ease and made us so comfortable to stand in front of the camera! From our engagement to the wedding our photos are beyond our exception! We couldn’t be happier! And I can’t forget Nicole, who has received endless amounts of emails from me and she has been such a pleasure to work with! Fast response, helpful and understanding! Thank you for making everything so seamless & smooth! This is the company you want by your side on your most precious day! You won’t be disappointed! THANK YOU RICKY & CREW xo

I can’t stop gushing over Anthony! I’ve been following Anthony’s working for a while, even before I met my husband. Anthony was everything I hoped for and more. He is funny and relaxed the entire day. I was so worried about the rain later in the day but he said no matter what he would make it work. We got most of our pictures done before the rain started. Anthony found an umbrella and took one of the most gorgeous pictures of the day! I’ve told anothny I love him more than I should have ;) every picture we have seen so far has been beautiful. I have to also mention Anthony’s assistant on the day of my wedding: Chris was also wonderful and had me laughing. I had to stare at him all day and he was great about it. I’m so happy we went with Anthony for our wedding!

OMG! Very happy that Ricky Restiano Photography was recommended to me by a co-worker. My co-worker, her brother and two best friends had used Ricky...so, I knew we wouldn’t be disappointed.

The staff at Ricky Restiano’s is top notch. Quick to reply to every email.
One day their offices were closed, close to my wedding date and I sent a text message, Ricky answered in minutes! Service like this is not easy to find.

Our photographer Anthony and his assistant Cyndi were AMAZING! We love the fact that our photos don’t look like a bad 1980’s movie. LOL!

Anthony was climbing on railings, stood on a divider in the middle of a highway, thought out of the box and was truly a dream to work with.

My husband who isn’t a fan of taking photos was enjoying himself. That speaks volumes to me.

We felt very comfortable with Anthony and Cyndi the whole evening. One of the things my husband wanted at the reception, was “fly on the wall” type photos, so we did a first look and took all of our photos upfront, great decision.
Loved that once the reception kicked off Anthony and Cyndi did their thing, without interrupting us.

Ricky Restiano Photography uploads 50-60 photos a few days after the wedding to FB as a teaser. Nice touch! We were on our honeymoon when they uploaded ours and it was great to re-live the day! It was also lovely to hear from friends how amazing the photos looked.

Looking forward to seeing the rest of the proofs.

If I could give Ricky Restiano Photgraphy 1,000 stars, I would. Anthony and Chris were AMAZING!!!! This was the one vendor that I knew I was going to book from the day I got engaged. Anthony has an eye for the perfect photo. As we drove away from the church, Anthony pulled over and all three cars/limos followed. I said to the driver, is everything ok? He said, yep, Anthony sees something, trust him. I’ve grown up in Rockland my entire life. I have driven passed this broken down shed for 30 years. Anthony saw it for 5 seconds, and knew this was a place to stop. I cannot tell you have many compliments, phone calls, texts, and emails we have received over these pictures. People have said that these are the best pictures they have ever seen. Professional, friendly, talented...all words that describe the staff at Ricky Restiano photography. I cannot begin to thank them enough for EVERYTHING they did for us that day. Booking with them is a no brainier!!!! LOVE
