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 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!
Our goal is to document the many emotions of your wedding day. We are unobtrusive observers who anticipate and capture the smiles from the heart, the spontaneous gestures of your love, and the rhythm of your celebration. Contact us at 646 234 8927 or at team@funicostudios.com to chat about photography or video for your wedding! Read less

We enjoyed working with Alice and James for our wedding. They were very responsive and prompt and provided a lot of helpful information and tips leading up to our wedding. I appreciated that they planned a lot of the details in advance – this really helped for a smooth experience. We felt taken care of – and this was critical for us especially on our big day.

James was our photographer and he was awesome – arriving early to set up and was very friendly and helpful. We appreciated his professionalism and work ethic. He worked hard the entire night to provide a lot of nice and diverse shots, and this is evident in the quality of the final work. Overall we had a wonderful experience and would definitely recommend them!

Alice and James were our photographers for our wedding and we are over the moon with our photos -- on both counts -- quantity and quality! They provide excellent customer service and are so organized. I love that they provide a wedding day planning worksheet ahead of time to sort out all photography requests and they are super flexible! We don't live in NY (where our wedding was located) so selecting vendors from afar was a handful, but our meetings and phone calls with them were so helpful! We cannot wait to pick our album photos and see the final album product! Also, they provided videography services (2 videographers). We just viewed our highlights video and it was just perfect! We cannot wait to see our full wedding video! I'd highly recommend picking Funico Studios for your wedding - absolutely excellent customer service and friendly people!

My husband and I were grateful to have Alice and James shoot our wedding. They were the perfect mix of in your face and out of the way. They took the time in advance to ask us which people we wanted photographed and whether we wanted to be taken up on the roof during sunset, etc. When it turned out that from the roof we could see fireworks after the gay pride parade and the Empire State Building lit up with rainbow lights they asked us if we wanted to run up for 15 minutes. We said yes and couldn't be happier to have taken that break to celebrate. They did everything as planned and made us feel confident being in front of the camera. We didn't have to micromanage a thing and all the photos came out beautifully. The hardest part is trying to figure out which ones we want to make an album out of!

James was our wedding photographer and we loved his work.

We hired James about 2 months before our wedding (how lucky we were) and we did not have much time to prepare due to our busy schedules. James and I had only a couple of brief conversations about what we wanted and decided a few possible locations (mostly his suggestions), leaving the details to the wedding day and the weather it would bring.

James was a pleasure to work with; he started the day early during my wife's preparations and kept a great attitude during the long day of work, despite a bit of rain. He was not afraid to get down and dirty (literally) to get the best shot and kept us smiling. During the photo shoot, he choreographed most of the shots and has made amazing choices for poses and locations. My wife and I suggested a couple of ideas and James went along with them and created some of our favorite shots. We also loved the shots he took under the bridge during heavy rain; the bridge has protected us but he was able to take these powerful shots as if among the raindrops.

A day before there was a bit of a misunderstanding about one small thing in the contract. James could have just insisted that he was right, especially given the timing but looked at the problem fairly and we were able to easily to find a compromise (he was actually ready to go all the way to my side but that would not have been fair).

My wife and I really enjoyed working with James and can wholeheartedly recommend him.

I was recently married on April 25th, and I have to admit Alice and James were wonderful. Alice worked with me for about a year and half planning details and learning both my husband and my personality. James and Alice were on time with the videographer. On the day of the wedding James and Alice were amazing, helping us to stick to the schedule and taking great poses prior to the ceremony. The videographer helped to create some candid moments for us. The Funico team let us enjoy our reception while catching intimate moments during our ceremony and reception.

I only have wonderful things to say about Funico Studios. Our photographer Jimmy was on point with everything. Within minutes of meeting Jimmy, I could tell he was a professional. He was PUNCTUAL, very amicable and made everyone feel at ease. Also, he speaks fluent Spanish, which made communicating with La Abuela much easier. Jimmy not only photographs, he directs. It makes such a huge difference, especially if you tend to be awkward in front of a lense. The photographs really capture the emotions of that night. Everyone that we have shown the photos to have raved and commended his work. During the ceremony and throughout the reception I didn't even notice that Jimmy and his assistant were there; yet he captured every moment with being intrusive. In addition, the owners Alice and Jim are very professional and answered all of our questions. I would definitely recommend Funico Studios. Truly beautiful work. He was even very gracious in dealing with in-laws that thought she was the Director of Photography. I highly recommend him.

Words cannot express what a wonderful experience it has been using Funico Studios to photograph my wedding day. From the first phone call I made to Alice inquiring about their services, she and her husband James have been a pleasure to work with. Patient, kind, honest, helpful, professional, fun, and reliable are just a few words I would use to describe my experience with them. Alice is friendly and always on the ball. She answers questions and emails with ease and is quite quick! James took time out of his busy schedule to create a timeline of events for my wedding day that I wanted photographed. He made some valuable suggestions which made for a perfect “flow of the day” and the pictures proved just that. James and Alice arrived on time and got right to work! They snapped away and took pictures of everything I wanted photographed and then some. Not only did they take lots of pictures, but more importantly they captured moments. I can feel the emotion in some of the candid pictures they took. I also love how they used different lighting techniques to capture some very artistic pictures and the essence of my Fall wedding. I have gotten so many compliments on the quality and originality of my wedding pictures and am extremely pleased with them myself. I am in the post-wedding stage of creating my thank you cards and album. Alice has been dependable and prompt with creating a beautiful website and slideshow of my pictures to view and share with friends and family. I am looking forward to seeing how my thank you cards and album came out. I am sure they will be beautiful! As you can tell from my review, I highly recommend using Funico Studios for any special occasion; as their work will capture your most special moments and leave you with photos of memories to last a lifetime!
