Steve Orenstein founded Wicked Pictures in 1993 with help from Brad and Cynthia Willis after developing an interest in the creative aspects of film production while still a partner in his previous adult company, X-Citement Video. During its first year, Wicked won several industry awards and Orenstein signed
Chasey Lainas the first "Wicked Girl". The second Wicked Girl, Jenna Jameson, was signed in 1995. Under Wicked's promotion, Jameson became the only person to win the AVN Awards for Best New Starlet, Best Actress, and Best Sex Scene in the same year.

During it's first year Wicked Pictures won several industry awards including Best Video Feature & Best Director for the inspired adult comedy, "Haunted Nights," which ironically starred future Wicked contract director Jonathan Morgan, who wouldn't sign on until 1997. Wanting their own in-house producer, Orenstein first hired Brad Armstrong, who has since made many movies that have won industry awards making Wicked Pictures one of the top adult studios.
As 2000 came around Orenstien brought Wicked into the next century inking a deal with California Exotic Novelties to produce high end adult toys branded with the Wicked Pictures name and designed with input from Wicked contract stars.
2004 came to an end with Wicked Pictures earning 71 AVN nominations and in early spring 2005 Steve Orenstein signed David Stanley on as another contract producer. The year ended with 62 AVN nominations. 2006 would prove just as successful as long time veteran Rand Spears would be signed on to an exclusive contract as both an actor and director as well as award winning videographer/director Francois Clousot. The year ended with 102 AVN nominations with over half of them divided between three movies directed by Brad Armstrong - "Manhunters," "Curse Eternal," and "FUCK."
Wicked released the first high definition adult title, "Camp Cuddly Pines Power Tool Massacre", in December 2006.
