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!

Sarah & Zach’s Wedding Photos at the Green Building, Brooklyn, NYC

Sarah & Zach came back home to get married at the ultra cool-looking Green Building in Brooklyn. It rained all day & all night, but the couple didn’t let the rain bring down their spirits. We seized the opportunity to create some artsy rain shots – and turned an unhappy weather event into an amazing photo opportunity! 🙂 From the “I do’s” that began the wedding day to the cutting of the cheese (yes, cheese instead of cake!) that ended the evening, Sarah & Zach were all smiles. Many congrats to this wonderful happy-go-lucky couple!

Nicole & Eric’s Wedding Photography at Paramount Country Club, New City, NY

Nicole & Eric met in college and a few years later, happily became husband-and-wife at Paramount Country Club in New City, NY. We learned something about Nicole that evening – she loves hot sauce! How do we know? Eric’s sister wrote a special song to wish them years of happiness filled with hot sauce and his family played it at reception. Love! Love the song and love how Eric’s family all picked up a guitar to play the song! 🙂
