The Funico Studios Blog bio picture

    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 Look forward to chatting with you!

Jaclyn & Steven’s Wedding Photos at Hotel du Village, New Hope, PA

Steven is the mayor of Jersey City, NJ. Jaclyn is a physical therapist in Jersey City. They meet when Jaclyn’s partner decides to host a “meet & greet” for Steven’s mayoral campaign. The event did not succeed (partly because Jaclyn forgot to hand out flyers and there was no one for Steven to meet!) For Steven though, it was a huge success since he did get to meet the beautiful & smart Jaclyn. 2 years later, the couple happily tied the knot at Hotel du Village in New Hope, PA. Beautiful day, beautiful bride, beautiful wedding!

Asmita & Eric’s Wedding Photos at Battery Gardens, NYC

A Hindu ceremony with Western traditions of exchanging vows and wedding rings. A Norwegian wedding cake and a regular wedding cake. Throughout the whole wedding, Asmita & Eric incorporated both of their cultures beautifully (and deliciously with 2 yummy cakes!) A blending of 2 spirits and 2 cultures into 1 – Asmita & Eric, now husband & wife!
