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 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 Look forward to chatting with you!

Melissa & Danny’s Wedding Photography at Nicotra’s Ballroom

2 years ago, we photographed Melissa’s brother’s wedding. A few weeks ago, it was Melissa’s turn at the beautiful Nicotra’s Ballroom! Melissa married her best friend & neighbor, Danny. For Danny, Melissa was literally “the girl next door” since they grew up on the same block! After many years of being friends, they found a lifelong partner in one another. Melissa & Danny – friends forever, partners for life.

Aida & Frank’s Wedding Photography at the Hilton Garden Inn Staten Island

Aida & Frank – a very sweet & genuine couple. We first had a lot of laughs together in DUMBO where we did their portraits. The vintage taxicab they had reserved was a great prop & quite a hit with everyone walking by! After the portrait session, we headed to the Hilton Garden Inn in Staten Island where the couple got married and had a truly rockin’ party!
