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

Alice and James are amazing!!! Not only are they incredibly creative and talented, but they are so accommodating, understanding and thoughtful throughout the entire process. They worked through every detail with us during the planning stages, and kept us cool and calm the day off. A few days before our wedding we had to change the area originally chosen to do the bride and groom pics. James immediately got back to us with great alternatives and scouted out spots for unique and amazing pictures.
We couldn't be happier with our pictures! They are above and beyond what we expected. Alice captured the emotions and reactions of our family and friends which is just incredible to see. James took such unique pictures that everyone is still talking about them. Our wedding day was incredible and thanks to Alice and James, we can cherish that day forever with the most amazing pictures!

Writing a review for Funico Studios is easy. I loved them! Value, professionalism, and skill. I must say I am partial to Alice. She had me from the beginning by being a calming force and completely open minded. From start to finish Alice was available, thoughtful, and a pleasure to deal with. I believed the prices to be very fair and when I saw the photos - I was thrilled!

On the day of when I felt "too many photos and people - ahhh", I called Alice over and she had everyone out after one more pose. That was a nice moment to myself. Perfect Alice. They respected our alone picnic and got perfect pictures of everything. Jame (Alice's Husband) was the other part of the photography pair and I opted for 2 videographers. Everyone worked so well together and it ran so smoothly.

They created my time schedule for the day of which was extremely helpful later on when tons of people were asking me for it - Thanks James! Basically they just took care of everything, remembered all the things I didn't, and were fun. I enjoyed having them at my wedding and will enjoy their beautiful visions of the night for years to come.

I have also already referred someone to Funico and they booked with James/Alice too. Great pictures and people - win!

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.

Funico Studios was a fantastic partner to work with for our wedding. Not only did their photographs and videos come out beautiful, they were also incredibly organized, responsive, and reasonable throughout the entire process. From a details/logistics standpoint, they were always on time with their deadlines and communicative about what needed to get done and by when (and considering how much planning goes into a wedding, knowing you can rely on a partner is a very important quality!). From a photo/video standpoint, we couldn't be happier with the results--we love our pictures. We used Funico for engagement photos, wedding photos, a short wedding montage video, and a 1+ hour long video. On a side note, to their credit, many attendants at the wedding mentioned how unobtrusive the photographers were--several even said they had no idea there was a videographer at the event because he was so stealth with his techniques.

We really couldn't be happier having worked with Funico. We felt they went above and beyond to provide us with a wonderful experience.

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.
