You've booked the photographer, the videographer, the venue, the caterer but have you booked a LIVE PAINTER?
Yes, THAT'S A THING. I didn't know it was a thing either until a few years ago. It has been the most fun I've ever had painting!
I know one more thing to spend money on, I get it but let me tell you why it's so important.
Capturing memories is a timeless way to preserve them for a life time. We lose photos off our phone, misplace an album, forget to document an event but now you can get intentional with creating an authentic moment in time by letting me capture the essence of your day with a paint brush + it gives your guesses a fun way to be entertained throughout the night and let me tell you they love it more than I ever thought they would.
So what does it include?
4 hours of live painting (from when the guests arrive through the first dance typically) additional hours can be purchased. Live painting is a concept that I am there painting in the moment for guests to see but I capture what you want painted with a photograph and live images as you will be going around all night long interacting with guests. (ex. you want the painting at the alter I will get there when that happens snap a picture and work from the pictures and a live version of you and then get to work painting)
I set up an aesthetically pleasing display of an easel, paint cart, chair and a light.
I get in touch with you before you book to ask what it is you want to include in the painting. You both dancing, walking down the aisle, guests dancing, a private moment before the wedding, a first look. YOU TELL ME, I'll create the magic.
Includes the following sizes to choose from:
8"x10" , 9"x12", 12"x16", 16"x20", 18"x24" (Custom Sizing Available)
Thick watercolor paper for watercolor in the above sizes as well.
Mediums: Arcylic Paint or Watercolor Paint
FLAT FEE DEPENDING UPON THE MEDIUM! (extra for custom sizing + extra for more time spent at wedding(4hours included))
ACRYLIC: $700 (Canvas + 4 hours + Fayette co/Lex Included)
Watercolor: $475 (painted in sizes above + 1' white border + 4 hours+ Fayette co/Lex included)
ALL paintings are taken home at the end of the night to dry, be signed, packaged and add finishing touches. This generally takes 1-2 months unless its busy season then no more than 3 months.
Tax, Shipping & Mileage extra
Need more than 4 hours of painting no problem, each additional hour is charged outside of the 4 that are included @ an hourly rate of $75.
