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!

Erica & Daniel’s Wedding Photos at Maplewood Country Club, NJ

Erica & Daniel met on the 1st day of work and quickly realized that they were meant to be. A lot of people think that accountants don’t know how to party, but as you can see from these photos at Maplewood Country Club, these 2 accountants sure know how to let loose!

This was actually the 3rd Epstein family wedding that we’ve photographed. We also photographed the weddings of Erica’s 2 cousins. To the Epsteins & the Malchis – thanks so much for your trust in us!

Sarah & Jamie’s Wedding Photos at the Ryland Inn NJ

We’ve been told by our brides that winter weddings are hard to plan. Well, Sarah & Jamie nailed it with their beautiful winter wedding at The Ryland Inn, NJ. The decor was stunning – an intimate mix of low light, candles, white flowers and branches that conjure up feelings of warm & cozy. They even brought in their own farm table! After all their hard work, the setting was perfect and the happy couple sure looked like they had a great time dancing the night away!
