Live Wedding + Event Painting

Why book your live wedding painting with me?

I am passionate about weddings and understand the importance of all the small details that truly make the big day memorable.  I want to capture the love between the couple, a moment in time you can hold onto forever, and the raw emotion as the day unfolds.  I will provide not only a beautiful piece of heirloom quality art, but an unforgettable experience for you and your guests too.

What to expect?

- Let's make it official | After the contract has been signed and a deposit is made, we will schedule a date to get to know each other.  You ask me all the questions your heart desires and I will start to understand you and your partner, and the details of your upcoming wedding day.  We can do this over coffee or on FaceTime.  I want to make sure to capture the best version of yourselves on your special day by being prepared with comfortable pose options and a custom paint palette just for you!

- Planning | We will stay in touch up to the big day!  I will work directly with your wedding planner and/or venue to make sure I have what I need, it's minimal!  I will bring my easel and supplies, I usually just require a small cocktail table and I'm ready to roll!

- Wedding Day | I will arrive to the venue with time to setup and capture a first look or post-ceremony portrait with my own camera, this will begin 2 hours before I begin painting.  Each timeline will be unique to your own event schedule's needs.  While you are saying "I Do" at the ceremony or welcoming guests at cocktail hour, I will be preparing the sketch behind-the-scenes so that it is ready to paint at the start of the reception.  As you and your guests eat, drink, and celebrate your love, they can watch your heirloom quality portrait come to life. With each layer of watercolor paint and tiniest detail that is added, the moments and feelings of the evening will be captured for you to show-off by the end of the night.

- Finishing Touches | The portrait will be mostly complete by the end of the event.  But watercolor takes time and I will carefully take the painting home with me to finish up final details.  After letting it dry completely I will give it a beautiful frame that we selected together during the planning phase, package it perfectly, and either hand deliver or ship it to you, usually within a week from your big day!
