The Funico Studios Blog bio picture

    Thanks for visiting our blog. Who is Funico you might ask?

    Husband-and-wife led team. Award-winning New York wedding photographers and videographers. Imagine the photo & video possibilities!

    Our names are actually Alice & James Thompson, not Alice & James Funico (though we've gotten mail addressed to Mr. & Mrs. Funico!) We created the word "funico" because we wanted a name that people would remember and something that includes the word "fun" in it. Your wedding is a celebration and all parts of it should be FUN!

    We love everything about photographing weddings! The fun candid moments. Harnessing light to create PHOTOGRAPHIC ART. And giving you amazing photos & videos to enjoy for years to come!

    To chat about photography or video for your wedding, reach out at (646) 234-8927 or Look forward to chatting with you!

We’ve been asked to join Best of Wedding Photography!

They have very high standards and membership is by invitation only! They look for photographers who have achieved high levels of success in the industry, with accompanying recognition by brides.

This is the letter we got from them:

We spent time looking over your site and we love both your sense of style and your sense of fun — it infuses every one of your photo stories. We can certainly understand why you have won awards from so many respected wedding organizations i.e. AGWPJA, PPA, WPJA, and WPPI – kudos! And we respect all of the publications that you have been featured in and how your customers have recognized your photography talent.

Your passion, skill and experience are clearly reflected in your imagery. We especially enjoyed your wedding coverage of Michael and Jennifer at Snug Harbor. Overall, we love your bold, fresh, beautiful images that really capture the moments and the honesty of the events you document.

We hope that you will consider our invitation. You’re just the kind of photographer we’d love to see in the group, and we would be honored to count you among our members.

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!
