How live wedding illustration works:

I take a quick photo of your guests, and they can head back to the dance floor and enjoy the party! As the reception gets underway, I begin to paint guest portraits, capturing their individual personalities and expressions. I typically work quickly, using bold brushstrokes and vibrant colors to create lively and expressive paintings.

Each illustration is created under 7 minutes on a high quality watercolor paper that you can gift to your guests as party favors. Watercolor guest portraits are completed in a sketch-style at speed and will have a fun and whimsical look. All of the completed portraits are wrapped in a protective cello sleeve and can be picked up at our table at the end of the night.

Turning your memories into masterpieces!

The concept of Live Painting at events is to paint a scene on canvas as the event takes place. I can paint any scene from your wedding, this could be a ceremony, cocktail hour, reception, first dance or other scene. 

I arrive with a blank canvas, and paint the party room and decorations in detail before your guests arrive. As the party unfolds, the painting comes to life. Not only will you have a finished painting at the end of the evening, but I also serve as entertainment to the guests.

Guests are welcome to watch the piece come together over the course of the day which creates a fun and unique source of entertainment. 

Whether you choose your first kiss, walking down the aisle hand-in-hand, or your first dance, I will capture the magic of the moment.

This investments starts at $3,500
