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 but 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 parts of 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 and 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 usually through the first dance) and 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 by snapping a photograph and painting from a combination of live images and photographs as you will be going around all night long interacting with guests. (ex. if 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 while guests mingle, eat and dance.) We talk about your vision when you inquire.
I set up an aesthetically pleasing display of an easel, paint cart, chair, drop cloth 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.
