Antique Images is a 30 year old family business that innovated the now ubiquitous trend of costumed period photos. The business is run by married couple James DiMartino & Mary Gillett and a team of loyal staff who have physics defying energy. The staff are super friendly and efficient considering the time consuming process of dressing customers, posing and receiving your photo to keep forever. Families with small children are also well accustomed for as the staff are superb and charming with infants. From my time there the business caters to ALL AGES literally from 6 months to 65. Whether you have a penchant to be a gunslinger in the Wild West, a Civil War veteran, a Prohibition gangster, or a debauched pirate, Antique Images is a must on your Jersey Shore vacation. Like business owner James says: 'it's kinda like Hallowe'en, but we get all the candy at the end', but there are more treats than tricks.

We have been going here since 2005 when me and my fiance first got together before we had children. Once we had our kids we made a yearly thing to go get pictures done. The staff is very creative, and it's never the same picture twice. They take phenomenal pictures, and make it very special for us. Very professional and a must-have experience to work with them. I would never even think to go anywhere else to get old time photos.

I have visited Antique Images, the Original and First Old Time Photography Shop on the Boardwalk for years. Located Only in the Boardwalk Mall, they cater to many returning families and couples for decades. They have the newest technology and produce the highest quality photos. Looking forward to seeing Mary and James again this year. From Western to Pirates, and now Steam Punk, they have costumes for every taste. Say Cheese!

It is just one of those things you HAVE to do every time you visit the Wildwoods. We have been bringing the kids here every year since they were just 10 months old. Fabulous way to record how they change over the years.
It is so much fun to dress up and travel to different time periods. It is the BEST ride and you get to take home a souvenir that you ACTUALLY want to keep.
I recommend this for families, kids, couples (romantic photos), groups and teams and single guys and girls.
Indulge your fantasy and visit the time cave tucked at the back of the Boardwalk Mall.
