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!

Johana & Jeremiah’s Wedding Photos in New Rochelle, NY

Johana first met Jeremiah one morning while he was cooking eggs for his housemates in college. They struck up a conversation and both knew they had just met someone very special. So much so that their relationship still flourished even while Jeremiah finished his Masters Degree in Nuclear Engineering in Florida and Johana worked as a speech therapist in New York. While Nuclear Engineering is very impressive, we think Jeremiah has met his match since Johana can speak 5 different languages fluently!

Not only do they have the gift of intelligence, they are blessed with just as much love and passion for each other. As you can see from the photos, the emotions were flowing during the ceremony.

Johana recently wrote a review about us and in it, she talked about our “bright smiles and positive energy” on their wedding day. When you spend a day with this couple, you have no choice but to be happy since their happiness is so contagious!

To Johana & Jeremiah – wishing you many more years of happiness together!

Shaulnie & Suraj’s Wedding Photos in Houston, Texas

We were so excited when Shaulnie & Suraj asked us to photograph their wedding weekend in Houston, Texas. We did their engagement photos last June, but we actually first met Suraj in 2009 when we photographed his sister’s wedding on Long Island. It’s a high compliment when a family flies us down to Texas to photograph another special event!

Here are some of our favorite photos from their ceremony at Chateau Cocomar, a stunningly beautiful venue, and their reception at the Omni Hotel.


6 years and 2 kids later, Reena still looks amazing – wow!

Sheetal & Karan’s Wedding Photos at Carlyle on the Green, LI

Sheetal & Karan. Meant to be. Each person’s face lights up when the other walks into the room – a true sign that this very sweet couple was meant to be.

It was a very snowy February day when Sheetal & Karan got married at Carlyle on the Green in Long Island. As you can see, the snow made for some fantastic photo opportunities!

Many congrats to Sheetal & Karan – may you always bring a smile to your partner’s face when you enter the room!
