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 our unique style of "fine art photojournalism." 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, the spontaneous gestures of love, and the rhythm of your celebration.

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

Catia & Kosta’s Wedding Photos at Greentree Country Club, New Rochelle, NY

Catia is Portuguese and Kosta is Greek. Both of their heritages were incorporated into their wedding at Greentree Country Club in such a fun way. There were many dances with dollars thrown in the air (a Greek tradition) and the evening ended with duelling dessert trays – “Portugal or Greece, who’s better, we’ll see!” How fun & cute!

Jen & Chris’s Wedding Photos at the Liberty House Restaurant, Jersey City, NJ

Jen & Chris have known each other since High School. Little did we know that Jen had a great softball arm until the priest mentioned it in his service! They tied the knot at the Liberty House Restaurant a few weeks ago. In attendance was their adorable little baby girl who brought a smile to the face of everyone who saw her!

Lizzy & Ken’s Cinematic Film at Central Park Boathouse

Lizzy & Ken. Truly an amazing couple. They both work for the United Nations and both tirelessly fight to help the weak & defenseless. In fact, there’s going to be a United Nations video about how Ken stood up to thousands of armed soldiers to protect refugees! Amazing couple with amazing hearts. Here are highlights from their cinematic wedding video at Loeb Boathouse in Central Park in case you want to take a peek!

Mark & Rich’s Same Sex Wedding at the Stone House, Warren, NJ

Trick of fate. That was the song Rich sang as a surprise gift to Mark on their wedding day. “What were the chances I’d be here with you? That after all the lonely years of searching everywhere, I’d turn and you’d be there from clear out of the blue?” sang Rich in his strong, melodious voice. Beautiful song that sums up their story beautifully.

Mark & Rich met on a production set and quickly knew they were meant for each other. 10 years later, they declared their commitment to one another at the Stone House at Stirling Ridge and can now legally live happily ever after! Many congrats to Mark & Rich!
