“Fabulous Fun & Great Memories for All!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

Antique Images is a terrific place to capture a memory! They are in the boardwalk mall (esp. great when there is lousy weather) and offer MANY kinds of themed photos--some I remember are Victorian with gals in big skirts and guys in top hats, flappers with corsets and garters, Old time gangsters, Wild West cowboys and saloon girls, Steampunk travelers, a hot jazz band or some creative mix. You get to choose from lots of really nice costumes complete with all kinds of cool accessories. There is a theme to suit EVERYONE and all kinds of folks were there when my beau and I shot a Steampunk fantasy scene--we saw kids, families, extended families, girlfriend groups, couples, & groups of friends. Very FUN activity for all ages! The place is family-owned and owners Mary & James and their staff know their stuff! They expertly got us ready quickly, put LOTS of fun props and accessories in our set up, shot our unique scene, made us look great and helped us choose our best pictures. Great way to remember our trip. A lasting souvenir we can share with our friends. Can't wait to go back!

“They know what they're doing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

Very knowledgeable staff. For someone who has a hard time making decisions the staff was helpful recommending a theme. They work fast but definitely know what they're doing.

We had so much fun, I'm sure we'll be back.

“Great idea!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2013

This is the family owned one in the Boardwalk Mall. Fun and well worth it. I've done this once before when the girls were young and treasure that picture as I'm sure I will treasure this one. Good value if you avoid the frames and matting - $25 for 1st person, $5 for each add'l, $5 for color (or antique color which we got) - thats for the fun of dressing up and an 8x10 - each add'l sheet is $20 (we got a sheet with 2 5x7s). Frames run $12 to $20, cardboard holders are $2-3. They're open 10am - midnight - we went about 10:30am and were taken right away. The girls and I are very happy we did!

“Great Experience!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013

I have been to Antique Images several times, and I must say it was always a fun experience. This, perhaps, is the best place around to check when you are in need of wonderful photos to remember. The costumes on ground were really nice and were of diverse forms and designs. The staff was really helpful, always ready to assist in making clients look well. It is a great place that you'd love to check out for your annual family photos. A visit to Antique Images and you'd sure be hooked.

“The "mob" has arrived in Wildwood!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2013

When we arrived we could not decide whether to be part of the mob or cowboys. My boys wanted to be gangsters so the decision was made. The owners Mary and James and the rest of the crew could not have been more helpful getting us kitted out...not an easy task with three boys ranging from 6 to 13! As we posed with out costumes and guns in hand we could have been hanging out with Al Capone in 20s Chicago! We really looked the part and the boys got into the swing with their "don't mess with me" poses.
After taking our photos, Mary was very helpful when choosing the images. We opted for an A4 picture with a antique frame. The whole experience was great fun and the boys certainly would not look out of place in the "Untouchables" movie:)
Batta bing!!! Just tell em Al sent you!
