There are "wedding photographers" and then there are "photographers who shoot weddings." Amy Rizzuto is the latter. She is a true artist who can capture the natural glimpses of her subjects' personalities and transform the ordinary into a dream-like vision. Amy and her team are professional, warm, easy to work with, deliver everything on time, and make the entire process a delight. You are in excellent hands with Amy Rizzuto Photography.
In addition to capturing the most beautifully natural, elegant, and timeless images, Amy is also dedicated to supporting her clients’ needs up to and during the wedding. We brainstormed a “first look” scenario, which ended up including balloons. Amy not only supplied the beautiful balloons, but she went so far as to deliver them to my venue the day before the wedding. She planned to visit the venue that day anyway because she wanted to make sure the lighting would be perfect for the time of day we wanted to take pictures outside. Needless to say, Amy’s attention to detail is impeccable.
Amy Rizzuto Photography was the best decision we made for our wedding day. Her work will exceed all your expectations.

We were extremely happy with Amy Rizzuto Photography. Amy was incredibly easy to work with and really attentive to our needs and wants. She accommodated all of our wishes with ease and brought a ton or original and beautiful ideas "to the table." The final product was more than what we could have imagined. The pictures are out of this world and happily, our friends and family agree. We highly recommend Amy. You will not be disappointed.

When my husband and I met Amy, we knew she was the one! She was just amy-azing! She made everything perfect. She took the pictures I exactly wanted and then some more! She showed an amazing slideshow during the reception and I was shocked how beautiful they came out. (and these pictures were from that morning)
Be careful with other photographers. When meeting with some other photographers you could see that they took pictures and would put filters like on Instragram. AMY IS A PROFESSIONAL!
She understands and sees things that the normal eye can't. She is a joy to be around and a wonderful asset to my wedding. I plan on telling all of my friends to use her for their weddings!!!
SHE IS INCREDIBLE AND AMY-ZING! YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED! USE HER :)

Amy did an amazing job with our wedding. We ended up with stunning pictures of every moment of our special day. Amy was so great to work with. She came in with ideas and a mission to capture perfect pictures. She made sure to get the photos we wanted, and then filled in the rest with her own picture ideas. She was so fun and handled our 22 person wedding party wonderfully. We were so excited to watch the slide show she made using our first dance song and a few of her favorite photos the day after the wedding. We also used her photo booth, which was so fun and left us with some adorable and goofy pictures. She was so well organized in everything she did for us, she is absolutely wonderful. We are so thankful and fortunate to have the beautiful wedding pictures she captured.

All i can say is that you NEED to pick Amy Rizzuto as your photographer!!! From the first time I met her just a month after getting engaged, I knew that she was the perfect person to photograph my wedding. Amy has a heart of gold, and a true passion for what she does which is capturing real emotion in the most special moments of your big day.
Our engagement session in Grand Central Station and Central Park was so much fun, and I got compliments on the pictures throughout the whole year, and even on our wedding day! On the wedding day itself, Amy and second shooter Mekina were just amazing. My dad said today that it felt like they were part of the family, not just people you hire to photograph your wedding. Amy's intuition about shooting locations and the way she makes you feel so calm and relaxed throughout the whole day is truly a gift. My wedding came across in pictures how I always dreamed it to be :)
Before the wedding ended, Amy put up some of the pictures from the day on a laptop in the ballroom. The reaction from guests was just unbelievable..people coming up to us saying they can't wait to see the rest of them! Amy had one of our pictures up the next morning, and a beautiful blog of so many pictures up within two days set to our wedding song. We can't stop looking at it, and neither can our families, friends, and coworkers. I received all of my wedding photos within 7 weeks of my wedding day. They are truly stunning...and I have spent most of today trying to pick which ones to use for our thank you cards, because they are all so beautiful!!
Any bride and groom would be lucky to use Amy Rizzuto photography. While Amy has a true talent and passion for what she does, it is the warm smiles of her and Mekina that are like a ray of sunshine during a wonderful but chaotic day :)

From our engagement session to the day of our wedding Amy Rizzuto Photography was nothing less than exceptional. Amy was always quick to respond to any emails and questions we had. Amy and her second shooter Jessica made us feel extremely comfortable in front of the camera and they both worked so well together. They captured our special day and included every little detail which will remain with us forever. The slideshow at the end of the night and the sneak peek the following day were amazing. Without hesitation we would recommend Amy Rizzuto Photography for all your special occasions. You will not be disappointed.

Amy's work is simply fantastic. Not only is the final product beautiful, she is a pleasure to work with. She pays extremely close attention to details, and there isn't a single moment that goes uncaptured. My husband and I are beyond pleased with our wedding photographs, and I would recommend Amy Rizzuto Photography to anyone!

Amy was absolutely the most amazing photographer for our wedding day. She was so professional but still warm, kind and fun! She made everyone so relaxed and was able to capture so much emotion. Amy knew exactly where she wanted to photograph us and came so prepared. She made all of the portraits so easy and fun! Our photographs are amazing and I'm so happy to all of these memories from such a special day.
We also decided to have a photo booth at our wedding (Amy has this as an a la cart option) and it was SO much fun! The pictures are awesome and everyone had so much fun with the booth. I highly recommend adding this option to your package!
The best thing you can do for your wedding is to hire Amy! She's a wonderful photographer and truly captures the love and emotion that is part of your special day!

I had looked at a few photgraphers after I got engaged, but all of their photos seemed to be the same. I came across Amy's work, and I was blown away. The photos that she takes are unlike any other photos I've seen from a wedding photgrapher. After I met her in person, I knew that I had met my photographer.
Amy photographed both our engagement session and our wedding, and the photos were just beautiful. They were exactly what I envisioned for my wedding. Each photo was better then the last, and I honestly cannot choose one single photo as my favorite. Aside from being a great photographer, Amy is also an amazing person. She is friendly, caring, and truly loves what she does. She made sure to capture every little detail of our wedding, and I couldn't be more grateful.
My husband and I were nervous about taking photos at first, but she made it so simple and so easy to forget that you were actually in front of the camera. All of our family and friends think Amy did an amazing job on our photos, and we couldn't agree more. If you are looking for a photographer, look no further. You will NOT be disappointed with Amy Rizzuto Photography!!

Amy Rizzuto Photography did an absolutely incredible job with my wedding photos! I have had compliment after compliment on the 69 photos Amy had up after only a handful of days-she even had a few photos up that night! Amy and Mekina were so wonderful and made it so easy to be natural and get the photos we wanted. Amy got some of the most amazing shots and I could not have imagined anyone else shooting my big day. She's so kind and helpful, no extremely helpful. She goes beyond the call of a photographer to make sure everything is perfect! And Mekina was a savior! Not only did she fix my hair after a slight "snag" but she did it in less than 10 minutes at crunch time when we were rushing to leave for the venue! I would highly recommend booking Amy Rizzuto Photography. Just look at her photos and you will know why. Undeniably incredible!

I don't even know where to begin! Picking a wedding photographer was VERY important to us so we searched forever looking for the best one we could find. Amy Rizzuto Photography definitely exceeded our expectations. From start to finish, Amy and Mekina were very responsive, caring, and genuine. I truly felt like we were all good friends after just knowing them for a short while. They went above and beyond to ensure that they captured every detail of our wedding day PERFECTLY -- it is obvious how talented they are and how much they love what they do.
We couldnt be happier with our choice to use Amy Rizzuto Photography -- we now have soo many beautiful pictures of our special day that we will be able to treasure forever.
We HIGHLY recommend Amy Rizzuto Photography -- You will seriously not find anything better!

Amy was by far the answer to our prayers! After meeting with several photographers in the Northern New Jersey area, my husband and I were feeling frustrated with the lack of trust we had in any of them. Pictures were really important to us and we couldn't find anyone who understood our style. She was so nice from the minute we spoke and we felt like she really cared about us and our wedding. She listened to all our ideas and matched our style with hers. We felt like she gave us such personal attention it was like a life long friend was shooting our wedding. She met with us at the venue beforehand to go over ideas and was always really professional with responding quickly and helping us out. Her second shooter Mekina even ended up redoing my hair! Amy posted some pictures the night of the wedding and had a page on her blog within a week. I have had the most amazing compliments on my pictures and I am so happy with the choice we made. We are so grateful for the time and talent Amy put into our wedding. I would recommend her to anyone!

Amy Rizzuto Photography was utterly amazing! My husband and I originally planned our wedding in New York City and were referred to Amy Rizzuto Photography by a friend. Our wedding plans were interrupted by an unexpectant move out to Los Angeles and we had to cancel all plans for New York City and move the wedding to Charlotte, NC (where our family lives). Amy was very helpful with these changes and even came down to North Carolina (with our photo booth) to photograph our wedding.
Amy and Mekina were extremely professional. They showed up early the day of the wedding to get pictures of all the girls getting ready at the salon, followed us around all day capturing all the little moments that you never want to forget, and kept a positive mood even when a few things didn't go according to plan. The best part was, during the wedding reception Amy pulled out her laptop and started running a slideshow of pictures from throughout the day so people who weren't involved in the bridal party could still be a part of the full days event. The captured sweet moments from the ceremony and key events from the reception that meant a lot to me.
I could not ask for a better photographer and would highly recommend her to anyone and everyone!

My husband Bill and I were having a three day Indian/Greek wedding and we were so glad Amy was up to the task! She was not only our wedding photographer but a great resource throughout the wedding planning process. She gave us a sneak peek to our photos the day of and an amazing slideshow for us to marvel at the day after. I could go on and on about Amy and her second shooter Mekina. Thanks so much guys!!! :)

Thank you Amy and Mekina for capturing our wedding day and putting everyone at such ease in front of the camera! They were just so positive and excited for my big day. I didn't have to think about the timeline or where or how to pose once all day. Everyone just loved them! During the planning process, Amy was so responsive and on top of everything. The pictures came out just marvelous. They even gave a sneak peak of the days photos the night of the wedding at the reception! We had a photobooth through them as well which was a big hit at the party! Great props. :) It was truly wonderful working with them! I would recommend them to anyone!

Amy and her team were awesome! I was a bit reluctant to do any posed pictures, but I must say, I'm glad she talked me into it, because they came out great! She was a joy to work with, just a burst of positive energy! The pictures came out just gorgeous! We will use Amy again for family portraits, baby photos etc. My Husband and I are big Amy fans!

If you want great pictures be sure to go with Amy Rizzuto Photography. She does a phenomenal job with capturing the moment. Amy's attention to detail is beyond any other photographer I have heard of and it defiantly makes a difference in the photos. Amy will check out the venue or photo shoot site to look for the most photogenic locations and come up with the best opportunities days before (if able depending on travel) so she is prepared. Not only does she go to the site but she goes at the same time of the event/photo shoot will take place to factor in the lighting...like I said before she has great attention to detail. Amy is not only a great photographer but she is a wonderful person to work with. She always has a smile on her face and and has a positive and cheerful attitude that can only bring out the best in you. Put all that aside and she gets your photos back to you incredibly fast and always has a sneak peak up within a few days if not hours. She is wonderful at what she does and truly has a love for photography, I would defiantly recommend Amy for any occasion. Amy was our photographer for our engagement shoot in NYC and our day after shoot in Tennessee.

Amy was our photographer for our big day this past October.
She went above and beyond to make our day exactly what we had ever dreamed of. She knew all the shots i wanted and made sure to get them and had a several great ideas up her sleeve as well. Amy loves what she does and cares a great deal for her clients and it shows through her photos. If you are considering using Amy Rizzuto, it will be the best wedding vendor you could choose for your day.

Amy and Mekina are two of the nicest, sweetest, and most fun girls that I have ever had the pleasure of working with. They were so above and beyond anything that I had expected, and they truly gave their day to making sure it was perfect for us. After the ceremony and on into the picture taking time, Mekina pointed out that we hadn't had a first dance yet. We were in the middle of Times Square with no band or dj in sight so Amy started singing," I've had the time of my life" while we danced our first dance as husband and wife :). And of course, the pictures she took while being our wedding singer as well turned out perfect! It was so fun, so beautiful, and I feel so lucky to have found such amazing photographers to capture the moments of the most important day of my life. These girls were awesome!

There is not enough room to write about how wonderful Amy Rizzuto Photography is...Amy and Mekina are beyond talented and are amazing professionals. Amy has the ability to capture not only what is happening but the true feelings of the moment. Amy is accommodating, thoughtful, responsive and truly treats her clients like they are friends. Our engagement pictures were some of the best pictures I had seen....and then we seen the preview of our wedding pictures! She managed to capture our deepest feelings on this amazing day - you look at the picture and it takes you right back to that moment. Simply amazing work. We can not wait to work with her again for our next milestone. We have found our family photographer! I would absolutely encourage anyone to check Amy's work out for themselves- her work speaks volumes. You will not find a better photographer!
