The Funico Studios Blog bio picture
  • WELCOME!

    Thanks for visiting our blog. Who is Funico you might ask? In short, we are:

    Husband-and-wife led team. Award-winning New York wedding photographers and videographers. Creative. Reliable. Trusted.

    Our names are actually Alice & James Thompson, not Alice & James Funico (though we've gotten mail addressed to Mr. & Mrs. Funico!) We invented the word "funico" because we wanted a name that you would remember and something with the word "fun" in it. Your wedding is a celebration and all parts of it should be FUN!

    We started photographing weddings in 2004 and have loved it ever since. As demand for our services grew, we built a small team of photographers and videographers who share our passion. As photographers, we will capture the essence of your wedding with candid photojournalism, fine art portraits and amazing landscapes. At the same time, our videographers will provide a cinematic video for you to enjoy and relive for years to come.

    Our goal is to anticipate and capture the smiles from the heart and the FUN of your celebration!

    To see more of our work or to chat about photography or video for your wedding, please drop us a line at (646) 234-8927 or team@funicostudios.com. Look forward to chatting with you!

Sarah & Kevin’s Wedding Photos at Hotel du Village, New Hope, PA

Sarah & Kevin came back home from California to get married at Hotel du Village. Their wedding had lots of beautiful touches (wonderful farm tables, candles to set the mood), but what we loved most of all was that Sarah’s brother designed her dress for her. How loving & sweet!

Many congrats to Sarah & Kevin – may you have lots more fun & exciting adventures together!

Sahar & Ryan’s Wedding Photos at the Stone House at Stirling Ridge, Warren, NJ

We photographed Sahar’s sister’s wedding a few years ago and now, it was Sahar’s turn! It was great for us to see the family again. The very happy Sahar & Ryan became husband-and-wife at the Stone House at Stirling Ridge. The Stone House has a wine cellar, a fire pit and lots of great things, but as you can see from the photos, the bocce ball court was really the big hit with the groomsmen!
