What does your live-wedding painter include?  

  • 5 STAR reviews!
  • Professional results
  • Your complete satisfaction
  • Flexibility working with the artist
  • Great experience for you and your guests
  • Unique, heirloom oil painting of your wedding event on Belgian linen canvas

I want to get the best reflection of your event, so I set up my easel, light, and paints, conveniently to your floor-plan, a couple of hours before your event starts. And because my process starts early with the background elements, I focus on you and your guests once you arrive and capture the desired moments and people “in action” during the event. And this is while your guests enjoy watching the whole process!

What does the live event painting process look like? .

(video short of an event painting hereI paint for at least 6 hours at the event. Because of that amount of painting time, I finish some paintings then and there. But when there are more elements to capture, with larger sizes for instance, I like to take a little more time with the painting details, and then I’ll complete the painting during the following week. When you are happy with it, I consider the painting finished.  After I get your approval, I sign and deliver the work in a professional, gold-finished wood frame, because I want you to be able to hang it right away.


What are the costs?  Wedding Painting fees and sizes – and frame.

I provide a complimenting, wood frame with attractive gold-toned finish for your painting and include it for you because finished artwork deserves the best first impression! My provided frames add at least 3 inches per side to the canvas sizes listed here:

What about Artist’s Travel Expense Fees?

I charge an additional travel expense for round-trip distances over sixty miles from the Roswell or Savannah studios, at sixty cents per mile after that first sixty miles. I also require a single-night of lodging if I’m driving and distance is over two hours drive one way. Airfare and lodging are arranged separately at time of event-painting booking for international or cross-country travel to events.

  • I deliver Event paintings within 20 miles of studio – included
  • Shipping rates, if required, are standard 2-Day FedEx rate from studio address, added to final invoice

As Seen on The Knot

What about After-Event Paintings? Use photos of your prior event…

I happily create after-event paintings because clients often want to commemorate special people in prior times. If you have several good photos, but missed the opportunity to have a special day painted from life, I can  recreate that “Live Event” feeling for you with my signature quick, loose painterly style.  If I’m not available on your particular date, consider an after-event painting instead!
