Today's side deal gets newlyweds, soonlyweds, and the otherwise engaged a Groupon-exclusive photo package. For $150, you get a 50-minute photo shoot at Funico Studios. After your session, you'll also get three months of access to a custom webpage featuring a slide show set to music and an online gallery of all photos. Finally, you'll receive two high-resolution image files of your choice with reprinting rights. You can choose from a number of different iconic Manhattan locations, depending on what day you schedule your shoot (see sidebar).
To achieve a style that it describes as "fine-art photojournalism," the boutique studio employs an award-winning team of photographers and videographers. Instead of churning out the usual stand-and-smile wedding shots, Funico's crew focuses on capturing the little moments, the candid moments of laughter and tears, the subtle gestures of a deep, abiding love, and the living, breathing human rhythm of your celebration (see here for examples of recent engagement photos). After your shoot, you'll receive a webpage with a slide show set to music and an online gallery to share with loved ones, plus two high-resolution images of your choice that you can treasure forever and reprint as often as you like—use them for save-the-dates, wedding invitations, or to blow up for life-sized cardboard cutouts of yourself for your living room. To reserve your slot, make sure to contact Funico Studios at least seven days ahead of time.
- Alice and James are a pleasure to work with. They are very talented photographers. – art p., Judy's Book
- Besides being extremely professional, we loved that they were a husband/wife team, and they worked incredibly well together, capturing every single moment that was important throughout the day, and they were able to perfectly capture the emotion in each special moment as well. – jules2teach, Google Maps
- James kept me laughing the whole day and lightened the mood during stressful parts of the day. He went with the flow and wasn't bossing us around and he captured the day and the emotions. – roxann, WeddingWire
