hey, i'm chris!

Before my photo career I had a career in music. Spending a lot of time on the road documenting my once in a life-time experiences, I found a love for photography. Years later, when traveling ended, I realized I could make a living capturing other people’s special moments. This was then and is now my way of giving people something they’re not able to get themselves.

The thing I like most about weddings is how unique every experience is. Unique to the people. Unique to their personalities. And capturing those personalities is challenging— and that challenge is what I enjoy most.

Aside from a career, I like to take pictures and really enjoy the art of photography and all aspects of gear. Outside of photography, being a dad is definitely my favorite thing to do. No matter what I get to do with my daughter, trip to the aquarium, botanical gardens, or anything else outdoors, I love it.

The photographers are incredible and the staff organized and kind. The photographers captured everything we wanted creatively and with subtlety. Chris and Francesca were absolutely fantastic! (and their assistant Vita was so wonderful!) We can relive our wedding through their gorgeous pictures!

Ricky & his team are AMAZING!!! Chris shot our wedding and was incredible the entire day. He listened to what we envisioned & was so flexible the entire day! If there was a specific picture we wanted, he shot it, no questions asked. You can tell he truly cares about making the day perfect for his clients through his professionalism & fun, awesome personality! Everyone was so easy to communicate with while we were planning, which made the process so easy for me! You truly can’t go wrong with any of the talented photographers there. I’m truly grateful for Chris & I absolutely love my pictures!! Hire him ASAP! :)

I can’t say enough great things about Ricky Restiano Photography. My husband and I are so happy we chose them for our wedding. Ricky & Chris were both awesome & SO creative, and the whole team is so professional and fun to work with. They made us feel at ease the whole time we were shooting. It was incredible to see them work & then see the outcome of the different shots they took; they truly have an eye for capturing beauty. We got a preview of about 50 shots from the wedding & they were stunning!! We’ve gotten a ton of compliments on the pictures and people are saying how they stand out from other wedding photos they’ve seen. We recently got all of our pictures back and we are soo happy!!! You can see the quality in their work and that they love what they do. It’s important to remember that after the wedding is over, the pictures/video are all you have to look back on. With that said, I would highly recommend Ricky Restiano Photography. They are well worth the money & you will not be disappointed!!

Ricky and co are by far the best photographers and his work is flawless. They are personable and have a vision that cannot be matched. My day was stressful and so many things were going wrong .. I had comfort in knowing our pictures would not be one of them. A review is just random words from a stranger you don’t know.. And you may still be hesitant about booking. But for me If I convince one person to book with him it will be worth it. I cannot begin to express the immense gratitude I have for Ricky and his team. Nicole helped me bustle my dress, fix my centerpieces and ran around in 90 degree heat back and forth to make sure each shot was perfect. Chris was dancing on the dance floor capturing every moment and was so much fun to work with. Ricky has artistic vision and drive like no one else I have ever met, I don’t think I saw him sit down the whole night. Thank you for everything!!

I can’t rave enough about how amazing Ricky Resitano Photography was to work with. Chris P was our photographer and he did the most incredible work. He was so great to work with and so much fun to spend the day with. We really worked him to the bone with a tight schedule and he was a trooper through it all. He worked so hard to get the shots we wanted and then some. Our photos turned out more amazing than I ever could have imagined. The consultation with Ricky was also awesome-he really listened to the style we were going for and directed us to the perfect photographer. Chris and his assistant devoted the entire day to us and made us feel like his first priority. We wish we could do it again! Thanks Chris and Ricky Restiano Photography!

The absolute best!! The first vendor we went to after picking our venue was to Ricky Restiano Photography. We knew that we had to have Ricky capture our special day and two years in advance we booked the best in the business. Everyone here is amazing to work with. Last June Ricky shot our engagement pictures and they were amazing.. He went above and beyond to capture some of the most amazing pictures I have seen. I didn’t think it could get any better until our wedding album teaser went up on Facebook.. We were blown away!! Literally nothing stopped Ricky and Chris from getting these amazing pictures.. They climbed on each other.. jumped over gates practically going in water.. Anything they had to do they did it. We could not be happier with these pictures.. We can’t wait to see all the proofs and the album. Not only are they all so talented but their personalities and energy is awesome. Whenever people asked who our photographer was and we would tell them without fail they would say he’s the best.. And he truly is.. They all are such an amazing group of talented people and we are so honored that they were such a big part of our wedding day!

There are not enough great things to say about this vendor. Ronnie, Vita and Chris were unbelievable to work with the day of our wedding. My husband is in the wedding business and see other photographers all the time so when it was time to book our photographer there was no question who we were going with.

Ronnie, Vita and Chris were hanging off of structures, climbing down rocks and laying on the floors to get the best angles for the best shots of us and our bridal party. They didn’t stop snapping their camera from the minute they walked into our houses in the morning until late into the reception hours. They traveled to all the locations with us and didnt miss a beat.

They also took our engagement pictures back in October. We took those at a little league baseball field and again Ronnie was hanging off of the fences to make sure he got the shot he knew would be perfect. Their designer took our favorite pictures and made our save the dates that we sent to all our guests. They will also be making our thank you cards which we know are going to be beautiful!

I can’t wait for our teaser to be put on Facebook and get to get our proofs. I know there are going to be THOUSANDS of awesome pictures that we’re going to have a hard time narrowing it down!

When you work in the wedding business you want to make a great impression the day of your own wedding so you only want to work with the best. That exactly what we did, booked the absolute best photographer around!

Chris is an amazing photographer! He brought a wonderful, sweet and very helpful assistant with him! They were always right where we would have wanted them to be to get the best pictures! They made the whole day fun from start to finish! All the office staff were also so friendly and reassuring when we had questions and details to add. Great group of people! We would highly recommend them for any event!
— Denise | Married April 24th, 2016
Truly Amazing!

The best of the best in Westchester! As I was researching wedding tips, one thing stuck with me, that when the wedding is all said and done, the only thing that remains are your photos- so make it a priority in your budget. Right from the first meeting we felt comfortable with Ricky and were excited to work with him and his team. We had Ricky, Chris and Holly Jo – all professional, innovative, creative and most of all FUN! They captured our wedding day perfect and made the day run so smoothly. They were flexible in capturing the ‘must have’ shots we wanted, as well as, being adventurous to get that perfect shot.
