After searching for the first few weeks of our engagement on nearly every local/semi-local photographers website, I stumbled upon a small photo that had a small tag of "Anthony Ziccardi" on it. I googled them and immediately was stuck on their site. After writing down the package and all information that we wanted, I compared it with others that had made our short list of photographers. I slept on it for three nights and just kept talking to my fiance about this studio. We finally looked at all the info together, decided that AZS was the most affordable for everything included, and their website truly showcased the beauty of their work. I called and we made an appointment, drove the 45 minutes to the studio and immediately felt welcomed. Not only are they warm, friendly and FUNNY as heck, their studio is STUNNING. This is a real photographer studio with incredible people behind the cameras and behind the scenes. Anthony has created a well oiled machine of beautiful photos. I would recommend AZS to every person who is looking for people who make you feel comfortable without spending your life savings on pictures of your day. We take our engagement photos in November, and we cant wait to see them again! It says a lot about a business that is booked in multiple places EVERY WEEKEND. Excellence is only word to use!
We just took our Engagement photo shoot with Joe a few weeks ago and we had an awesome time taking them. Joe made it so fun and easy. We got our pictures back and we are so thrilled with how they came out! We can not wait for the big day and we know that our pictures are will be in good hands! Anthony Ziccardi Studios will not disappoint - they have so many talented people working there who love what they do!
Anthony Ziccardi Studios is the only way to go when you are thinking about your wedding photographer. He and his staff are professional, kind, creative, punctual and genuine. They are 100% supportive from the first day you meet with them and continue through until their job is done. They bring ideas to the table and make you feel amazing on your wedding day. They return emails, phone calls and inquiries quickly and I never felt anxious once. Anthony is honest and only chooses talented photographers. We had Joe Steele as our other shooter and he was thoughtful, fun and thought of additional photo ideas that I absolutely loved! We used Anthony Ziccardi Studios as our videographer too and George was superb. They are willing to travel to your venues and their prices are great! If you want the absolute best photography studio for your wedding then hands down call Anthony Ziccardi Studios now and book your date! I would not change one thing about my special day and if I ever need photography in the future this studio will get another phone call from me.
Kevin and I knew even before we got engaged that pictures and video were very important to us to remember our wedding day. We discussed it so many times, and I watch my parents wedding regularly, I knew I wanted the same thing. My mom and I went to a few local bridal shows where AZS was set up and had such beautiful photos and videos. As soon as I saw a preview of one wedding video, I knew I had to have one too... and it just so happened to be my make up artist (Cheryl from The Mane Event) Thanks to AZS I had my one-stop-shopping... Hair, Make up, Photo, Video, and DJ! Anthony told us we would be in good hands with Joe Steel and a few months later we got to meet him for our EPS. I was so awkward and uncomfortable but after some time Joe fired away with some jokes and I was laughing in no time. I couldn't choose 1 photo for our gallery wrap, so I asked if I could have multiple and the collage turned out PERFECT. It's hanging in our new home and I couldn't be happier with that or our save the dates. AZS made our wedding day run super smooth - had the whole day planned out for us without a hitch or glitch. We had a beautiful day thanks to Joe, Rigo, and Corinne. Our priest came up to us right after the ceremony and said, "That's my kinda photographer - professional, not in your face, and didn't even know they were there. They were great and welcome here any time." Friends and family couldn't believe how professional they were, not pushy or in your face, and let us enjoy our day. I could not have picked a better photographer and videographer than AZS. I am so happy that they were there to capture our special day. We cannot wait to see the rest of the pictures!!!

I wish I could give Anthony and his team a million stars! My husband and I knew from the minute we found Anthony Ziccardi Studios we didn’t have to look any further for a photographer. We did our engagement photos with them as well! Anthony and his entire staff have been nothing but helpful and professional… even with every silly question I had! From our initial meeting to our engagement pictures to our pre-event to the wedding day… Anthony and his team made us feel so comfortable. Any emails were answered in a day (if that!!!). You can tell everyone in the office is so happy to be there and really loves what they are doing (it shows in the pictures as well!). Two weeks before, when we went for our pre-event, Anthony laid out the timeline for the entire day, reminded us to eat, and gave us awesome ideas on how to make the day the best it possibly could be. On the day of the wedding, Anthony, Darlene and Ginder kept us on time, got all the shots we wanted (and some!!!) and made us feel like celebrities. We just got our photos back and I am utterly amazed by all the great shots we have to choose from. I am going to have a hard time picking my favorites. Do NOT hesitate… book Anthony and his team for your wedding… you will not regret it!!
AZS IS AMAZING! Pictures are a big deal for me for any event, but this was my wedding and the pictures had to be perfect! When I was looking at venues, I noticed these beautiful pictures along the walls, and noticed they were all done by Anthony Ziccardi Studios, I knew they were my choice to photograph our wedding! Later that week I met Anthony and Sarah at a Bridal Expo and ran over to them, I told them my wedding date, and was told they were actually considered shut down for that day, (they like to keep a few photographers on call in case of an emergency with any of the other photographers). Sarah could see the sadness in my eyes, and that next morning I received an email from her and she told me she was able to make it work and fit us in for that day! That moment was a dream come true for me. Of the hundreds of people she met that day, she remembered me and how badly I wanted this. Once it was time to head into the studio for a meeting, we were greeting by the most friendly staff and offered a drink. I sat down with my mimosa (which less face it, every bride needs something to calm their nerves) and we went through our wants, needs, and hopes for our big day. Two weeks before the wedding we had our final consultation. During this consultation I had no idea that my entire wedding timeline would be created, which was absolutely AMAZING and the biggest help! We went through an entire timeline of events such as when the bride needs to be ready, the ceremony start, the last light for outdoor pictures and everything in between! It was like having a wedding planner! In that hour for the consultation, I knew everything I needed to know for my big day, and felt confident that it would go smoothly, and it did! The day of the photographers (Phyllis and Photo Joe) showed up early, and got right to it! We had a large bridal party, including 6 kids (chaos) and they had everything under control!! My sneak peaks were amazing, I can't wait to see more! THANK YOU AZS!!!!!!
I cannot say enough great things about Anthony Ziccardi studios!!! My husband and I are thrilled that we chose them to be a part of our wedding day, I found Anthony Ziccardi when I came across some of their photos from other weddings on my reception site's facebook page (the Knoll Country Club). I had visited another highly rated photographer in northern NJ but had not been impressed by their service or the packages they offered...it was obvious they just wanted to make a sale. When I saw the pictures from AZ studios on facebook, I knew I had to call them and I'm so glad I did!! I liked that they have an approach where you don't need to select a package that are filled with items you don't want. We initially met with Sarah Ziccardi who was fantastic!--she really listened to us and didn't try to sell us things that we didn't want. Although the studio was far from my house and our wedding site, I didn't care because I knew I could trust them. It rained like crazy on our wedding day but our photographers (Marek and Matt) were prepared with huge umbrellas. They had us take some pictures outside in the rain and I have to say that those are our absolute favorite pictures. I highly recommend asking for Marek if you're able to get him as your photographer--such a nice guy and incredibly fun to work with! Matt was great too! Marek gave me his jacket when we went outside to take pictures and held my dress so it wouldn't get wet. He even held the umbrella over my head as I walked from the limo into to the church. We just picked up our wedding pictures and we cannot be happier. Many of my guests also commented that they didn't even realize that the photographers were at the wedding--they were completely unobtrusive. Even if you are considering another highly rated photographer you really need check out AZ Studios. Thank you Marek and Matt for making our day perfect..you guys rocked!!!.

After you choose a date and venue, make booking Anthony Ziccardi Studios your #1 priority. Through out the entire process, Anthony and his team were extremely accommodating and helpful through the whole planning. Every time I email (and still email) the team, I always get a prompt response!
The day of the wedding, Anthony and Amanda made it seem like they weren't even there. Our photos were pretty effortless, and the best part was - it was all up to us. They will make recommendations based upon the survey you take prior to the last consultation you have about 2-4 weeks before the wedding. If, the day of, you're not feeling it, or have had enough, they will make sure you get enough OUTSTANDING photos, that you won't be missing anything. Anthony and Amanda captured every single moment and looking at the photos this weekend, we were able to laugh, smile, and cry. It brought back such raw emotions.
I highly recommend AZS, and specially recommend both Amanda and Anthony himself, but am confident, knowing Anthony, he only hires the best in this profession!
Joe Steele was so wonderful to work it. He basically ran the show on our wedding day, always staying on top of the time. Joe was easy to work with and made us feel comfortable the entire time. Matt was working with Joe and he did an amazing job as well. They both took photos that we love and are so happy with our choice to hire them.
The team that worked our wedding was incredible! We had 2 photographers, a videographer, and a photo booth attendant which were all professional and even more importantly, fun to be around! Our guests and bridal party even mentioned how great they were. They helped create a comfortable and laid back atmosphere but we still on schedule and took great photos! I mean GREAT photos, we can't stop looking at them! They are perfect and we got all of the shots that we wanted. They really take the time to ask what you're looking for and what is most important to you.
AZ and his team are simply the best in the business! We were lucky enough to had worked with Phyllis and Marek for our wedding. They were very professional and honored all of our photo ideas. Can't wait to receive our amazing photos!
My husband and I could not have been paired with a better set of photographers. Joe Steele and Amanda were simply amazing! My husband and I met at an AZS wedding, and we knew once we were engaged that we had to book them for our wedding! We actually have an AZS picture of the two of us from the day we met at that wedding...will always hold a special place in our hearts! Joe met the girls at my house and was very calm, cool, and collected while the girls finished up with their hari/make up. He had a great eye for getting the best shots (despite the rain) and made us all feel at ease. Amanda took pictures of my husband and the groomsmen at the church. I know my husband and how when he is nervous it translates to pictures...Amanda must have done a great job keeping the guys at ease before the ceremony because those shots turned out great! Despite the weather, Joe and Amanda still were able to capture amazing pictures. When my husband and I got our flash drive, we actually said we were thankful that it poured at our wedding because we have truly unique pictures to remember the day by. At the end of the day, all we have from our wedding day is or marriage, our memories, and the pictures taken by Joe and Amanda to remember the day by. I am forever grateful to have Joe and Amanda from AZS capture our day so perfectly. You will truly not be disappointed in booking AZS for your wedding day!
BOOK THEM NOW!!! For those of you that don’t want to read the full review – the take away is book them now! You won’t regret it.
I found AZS via Pinterest during my wedding research. Once I visited their website, I knew I had to make an appointment with them. Our appointment was with Anthony and he ensured all my concerns were put to rest. He did both our engagement photos and wedding (Photo Joe was our second shooter). During your final appointment they give you a very detailed timeline of what to expect on the day of, which for Type A people like myself was fabulous. On our wedding day, I ran a bit behind getting dressed so we had to delay the photos of the girls until later in the day. Anthony’s relaxed demeanor helped me stay calm as he assured me there would be time later. In hindsight, I’m glad we took them later anyway! His team knew how important making cocktail hour was to us and ensured that we did. We had also wanted sparkler photos. Anthony had someone else from his team (to do the sparkler writing) drive out to our venue just for these photos and they are amazing!! After the wedding numerous guests told us how awesome our photographers were; how they were friendly, unobtrusive, and of course how amazing their work is. The facebook sneak peek and quick turnaround time are also huge perks of using them. Within less than a month after our wedding we had all our photos back. We are so happy we chose AZS to capture our wedding and are now just trying to pick photos for our album – which is a hard task when you have over 1500 amazing photos!!
Anthony Ziccardi Studios shot our wedding at Crystal Springs in August. They were a pleasure to work during the entire process. We followed Anthony's instructions for our Big Day and everything went smoothly! The small preview of photos he posted on facebook looked absolutely amazing! We are looking forward to getting back the rest of the photos and video. Thanks again!
I always said that my wedding photos were the most important thing to me. Let's just say, we've only gotten our sneak peek so far, and I am already beyond thrilled with our choice in hiring Anthony Ziccardi to photograph our wedding. At our final meeting (about 2 weeks before our wedding date), myself and my husband met with Anthony to go over the schedule for the day. Needless to say, what I thought was my "fool proof, perfect schedule", was far from it. Anthony took the time to make me realize how I could change a few things (really everything :) ) around last minute, to have the greatest, least stressful day of my life, and did it in a non-pushy way. Even though I was internally freaking out, and may have had a minor break down on the way home, THANK GOD I listened to him. The entire day was perfect. The first thing I said to Anthony when I saw him on the day of our wedding was "you were right." You hear that Sarah, your husband was right!! Everyone can't wait to see the rest of the pictures and the video, they are all talking about coming over and having a viewing party at our house when we get them! We will 100% be back to see Anthony again, no questions asked.
Brides....I just got married and know how stressful and overwhelming it can be in the beginning, from choosing a venue, to a color scheme, to your vendors. Let me help you check one thing off your ever-growing to-do list. Choose Anthony Ziccardi Studios for your photographer and videographer! I can not praise them enough, truly. From the moment we sat down in their studio, we could just tell we were in good hands. Not only do they take breathtaking and beautiful photos, but it's more than that. They make you feel at such ease leading up to your wedding and the whole day of. They truly capture the heart and essence of your special day, and they are so fun to be around! We worked with Anthony and Amanda, and George on video. All three were just fabulous, as I'm sure the rest of their staff is too! And not even a month after my wedding, they had us come in to see all our edited photos and they put together a slideshow that we got to keep, set to our first dance song. When we went into the studio, they sat us down on the couch, got us each a glass of wine, and played our slideshow for us. Does it get any better than that? You will not regret choosing Anthony Ziccardi studios...I promise!
