hey, i'm ricky

Back when I was 18, my mother offered me 300 dollars to take pictures. I thought that was a lot of money, so I took the job. Now that’s not the reason I shoot anymore, but ever since that first time, I loved it— I caught the bug and have been shooting ever since. 

Having shot over 2000 weddings, I am so incredibly comfortable and I know it so well— that the confidence that I have makes it so easy and so much fun for me to push myself creatively at every wedding. 

Aside from shooting, I love spending time with my kids. Any opportunity I get to be with them is amazing. When we're not together, I enjoy building things, laughing at Dave Chappelle’s ridiculousness, and eating pizza because no matter what my body says, it’s really the greatest food ever. 



what some clients have said about working together

What an awesome experience it was to be photographed by Ricky Restiano! His talent, eye for detail and passion are unmatched! He is efficient, professional, curteous, funny and most importantly, an excellent photographer! Just like Ricky, his team is always professional and kind and very responsive. We’ve seen a sample of our wedding photos so far and we are blown away and so excited to see the rest. We are so grateful and happy that we went with Ricky! It was one of our best decisions throughout the wedding planning process! He is truly a talented photographer!

From the first time we met with Ricky, we immediately felt relaxed, like we were hanging out with a close friend. My husband and I were extremely worried about looking awkward in photos so feeling comfortable in front of the camera was very important to us. Ricky not only made us feel relaxed but somehow look regal, sexy, glamorous, casual, crazy, happy, excited, and in love all in one roll of film. There are so many different backdrops and locations in our photos that you never get bored looking through them. Ricky is truly an artist and his photos portray that. I cannot thank him enough for the amazing photos he took!

I have one word to describe Ricky Restiano Photography- AMAZING! Meeting with Ricky and his crew for the first time, they were so accommodating to the date of our event and truly cared about the image my fiancé and I had in mind for our engagement. Throughout the time between booking with Ricky and our event, Nicole and Dana constantly answered any questions I had and quickly made any changes needed. When seeing our pictures for the first time my fiancé, family, friends and I were in awe; Ricky made our image come to life and really portrayed the love my fiancé and I have for each other in such different, unique ways. I recommend Ricky and his crew to any future bride! They will make any vision and any emotion come to life in their lens. We could not have been happier, and cannot wait to work with Ricky and his team for our wedding.

There aren’t enough words to say to express how absolutely incredible Ricky’s team is. My husband and I were blown away by how lovely they were to work with.
I am recommending them to absolutely everyone that I know.
Ricky, Chris, Eddie you guys made our wedding so special & I will forever appreciate you guys.
Such a talented, hardworking, fun group of people.

My husband and I booked Ricky for both our engagement shoot and wedding. We received so many compliments on our engagement shoot as they are not your typical poses. His shots are so modern and edgy absolutely beautiful! We will be getting our wedding photos soon and can’t wait to see them and share them with everyone! Apart from the amazing photos, Ricky and his crew are very easy to work with and they make things fun and comfortable. A side note, it rained the morning of my wedding but he still managed to come up with shots around our church and any nearby locations, rain or shine he got it done!

There is so many things that one person can say about Ricky and his team. The most important word is OUTSTANDING !!!! Ricky works his ass off for his clients, he goes above and beyond for the bride and groom. I can not express enough how lucky we were to work with Ricky and his team. He makes his visions come to life and has so many amazing ideas. He makes you feel so comfortable while working. It was a great experience and we would do it all over again.... Thank you for making our wedding a weekend we will never forget.

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 Restiano is by far the best photographer in existence! I basically saw albums of wedding photos he did over the years and knew I wanted him as my photographer before I was even engaged. I also revolved my wedding date around his availability, that’s how good he is!! His style, personality and creativity is indescribable. His entire team are truly amazing and just as amazing as Ricky himself. Everyone collaborated together make an unbelievable team! They captured such moments as well as made my wedding photos magazine material. I would hands down recommend them as well as tell you it doesn’t get better than Ricky Restiano Photography!!!

It was such a pleasure to work with Ricky and Ronnie. They were both very friendly and accommodating. They are both extremely talented and creative with the camera. They captured every moment. I am forever grateful to have those memories forever. I highly recommend Ricky and Ricky Restiano Photography’s team.

I knew that I had wanted Ricky to take my wedding photos before i even met my husband. In fact, when we got engaged, Ricky was the first person that we had booked. His photos and photography skills clearly speak for themselves and show how amazing he is. There isn’t too much I can say to show how good his work is because it shows in every picture he takes. What I can say however, is how great of a person Ricky and his entire team are. Ricky is truly down to earth and will do pretty much anything to get that perfect shot. He’s funny, talented, and a downright pleasure to work with. Neither my husband or I like being the center of attention and were very weary of having photos taken of us even when we started off with our engagement shoot. Ricky and Nicole made us feel completely comfortable and we had such an amazing time. When we got our photos back, needless to say we were in love with everyone of them. When it came time or the big day it was nothing less and even more than we expected. We left our photo location up to Ricky and his eye for the perfect place was definitely on point. We recently just got our proofs and they are all absolutely AMAZING.

All I can say is you don’t even need to question it. Book with Ricky and his team and you are guaranteed not to be disappointed from day one. Everywhere you go from that point forward and they ask who your photographer is and when you tell them Ricky, they will all tell you that he is the best and I can vouch that its 100% true!!
