Live Weddings & Events
1. How Does it Work?
Everything begins by discussing which moment you would like captured at your event. Popular wedding poses are the first dance, standing at the altar, or the first kiss, but let me know if you’d prefer something else! I’m here to recreate your special day. I’ll incorporate elements of the background and your guests, but the focus and detail will be on you.
On the day of the event, I will arrive 1-2 hours prior to the event to set up my workspace and put down a rough outline of the setting.
I will start painting in earnest once the reception begins so that your guests can experience the painting unfolding from start to finish. When the time comes, I’ll take a photograph of your chosen pose, and the photo will serve as my reference for adding you to the painting.
Throughout the evening, I will not only be capturing the beauty of the moment on canvas, but I’ll also interact with and entertain your guests. They’re welcome to ask questions and observe as much as they like. Many people like to catch my progress throughout the evening as the painting takes shape.
At the end of the evening, I’ll take the painting back to my studio for the final details. I do not offer a “Same Day” package because I believe in giving my best with every portrait and the end result is far better when I’ve had a night or two to sleep on it. Then, with fresh eyes and a good night’s rest, I can add the finishing touches to capture your special moment for a lifetime.
