A&A Studios is dedicated to preserving the beauty of vintage photobooths and the legacy of analog photography. As the “Photobooth Architects” we treat every project like an architectural endeavor. We specify the materials, components and software from various sources to create an end-product that executes the exact needs of our clients. Our team of artists, photographers, electricians, wood and metal workers come together to build the most perfect product all handmade in the USA. A&A Studios has the resources necessary to make anything happen. Be it a vintage restoration project or new custom digital design, we approach each build independently. The form and aesthetic of our photobooths ultimately reflect our client’s unique sensibility. At A&A Studios, we have designed and fulfilled hundreds of custom creations for discerning clients around the world.

ANDREA VIZZARI | Vice-President & Co-Founder
A photobooth enthusiast, Andrea Vizzari’s passion for the vintage photobooth goes back to childhood. Her background in advertising, sales and business was a natural transition when creating a photobooth company with her husband, Anthony. Andrea works with Anthony to manage photobooth rentals, leasing and sales. Andrea has worked for CBS Television, Clearchannel and Screenvision. She holds a Bachelors of Science in Advertising from the School of Communications at University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign.
CHRIS HOLMES | Director of Fabrication & Operations
At A&A Studios, Chris is the backbone of everything wood and order. It also happens that he is the most punctual of the crew. Chris enjoys listening to terrible music in the shop with David, much to Anthony’s chagrin. Ask him about an obscure band or musical figure and if he hasn’t met them from his roadie days, he will at the very least have a story. Chris is a natural when it comes to fabrication and attention to detail. And so, despite his musical interests and affinity for blueberry Fig Newtons, his fabrication skills are well respected in the shop.
