LIVE PAINTING AT YOUR WEDDING

I will bring my own canvas and art supplies to paint a scene in real-time at your wedding!

Not only does the painting end up being a favorite wedding heirloom, but having a live artist at your wedding ends up being a unique form of entertainment for your guests in attendance. Unlike entertainment that ends when your celebration does, your live painting is a tangible keepsake that provides a lifetime of joy.

MY PAINTING STYLE:

impressionism (not quite realism, but an 'impression' of the people, light, and atmosphere)

1. Reserve Your Date

You're in the right place! Simply fill out the form below to contact me and see if your date is available. I'll reply within 24 hours letting you know; along with a brochure describing the different packages and price points. There is a 50% deposit due to reserve your date. After that, you're officially on my calendar. And yes, I travel! 

2. Before the Wedding 

About a month before the wedding, I'll reach out to confirm all the important details and find out exactly what you're looking for in your painting. This is where we discuss any special details you want included like florals, decor, etc. You also have the opportunity to point out any specific people you'd like to included in the painting. Select the moment you want captured forever. When the day comes I'll be ready and waiting to snap a picture, so I can begin painting the core of it at your wedding.

3. The Big Day 

The day of the wedding, I'll arrive about 2 hours before your scheduled start time to set up and begin painting in the background scenery. As guests arrive, I'll start adding them into the painting. Guests are welcome to watch and ask questions.

4. After the Wedding 

From there, I take it back to my studio to add the fine details and finishing touches. This usually consists of adding facial features and small details that will really make the work sing! 

Once complete, I will email you a photo for approval, varnish the work and ship to you within 6 weeks of your event. 

PRICING - 

Pricing starts at $1500 and varies based on canvas size and painting location. We will discuss canvas size and all other details through email correspondence.

All packages include approx. 4 hours painting at ceremony and/or reception and additional studio time to perfect your piece. Shipped to you within 4 weeks of your event (The price does not include the cost of packing and shipping the final piece to be determined)

There is 50% deposit due to officially reserve the date (this is subtracted from your total), and the remaining balance will be due 1 month before the event.

 

TRAVEL - 

I am based in San Antonio, TX, but absolutely love traveling to paint at weddings. Additional travel expenses will vary based on location. Travel fees include gas, food and accommodations.

 

QUALITY -

Live Paintings are done in high quality acrylic paint on gallery-wrapped canvas. Acrylic is a fast drying paint that allows me to build up layers as I add guests and various scenes throughout the night. 

 

TURN-AROUND -

24x36" paintings + up will be about 80% complete at the end of your event. From there, I take it back to my studio to add the fine details and finishing touches. 

This usually consists of adding facial features and small details that will really make the work sing! 

Once complete, I will email you a photo for approval, varnish the work and ship to you within 6 weeks of your event.
