How It Works
Choosing your package and add ons
Take a look through the website to get a feel for what kind of details and scene you'd like in your live wedding painting. Talk with your partner about what is important to them to have in a live painting. Think about any add on's that might make your life easier (such as an included frame) or add that special final detailed touch (such as using your painting as thank you cards.)
Schedule a 'get to know each other' call
Send me a message with your wedding date to get started! In this age of texting and emailing, I know it can be difficult to have a phone conversation, but I really appreciate a chance to get to know you, and you me, before we commit to working together. In this call we get to talk about the exciting parts of your wedding, and I find out what your ideal live wedding painting package is. Based on our conversation, I will then send you a package quote, and a payment plan.
Securing your date and payments
Your date is secured by a 25% deposit of your chosen package. The remaining amount needs to be paid by the date of your wedding, and I can work with you individually on payment plans.
Before Your Big Day
I know you have a lot to do before the big day, so I want to keep it simple for you! I'll need about 15 minutes phone conversation to discuss details, and to lay out your desired scene! I aim for this conversation about a week before your event, so everything is final and decided.
I will set up my easel 2 hours before your event and get started with background details. As the event continues, you and your guests will delight in watching the details come into shape. By the end of your wedding, you'll have a keepsake to always remember the day!
Please note: I am pretty self directed. You will not need to hold my hand- or even pay me much attention during your day! Just come by at the end to see your painting :).
At the end of the night, I will take the painting back to my studio with me, where I will do any touch ups, let it dry, and varnish it. I will then either hand deliver the painting or ship it (shipping is included in prices listed.)
If you get the edit package, I will spend time to make your portraits and your guest's portraits really shine! You will receive your painting within 4-6 weeks of your night!
What type of materials are used?
High quality acrylics on canvas. paint is nontoxic, dries quickly and allows for easy clean up.
Can you work from photos if my wedding has passed or you are booked for my date?
I'd be happy to create a wedding painting for you from photos. Contact me to get started.
Set Up & Space Requirements
I'll need about 6 x 6 feet of space for my easel, access to water, and a view of the scene I will be painting. I will also need an outlet for indoor/night events
My style can be described as impressionistic and loose with some attention to realism and detail. Art is personal so please explore the gallery to see if it's a style that you will enjoy for years to come.
Once we confirm your date, then you'll choose your package, approve the quote (which may include travel fees). I send you a contract and invoice for a non-refundable 25% deposit. Once those are all returned, you are booked! Final payment is due at least 1 week before event.
I love to be flexible and accommodating. Please ask!
