What is Live Wedding Painting?
Live painting is a form of "plein air" (outdoors) painting used to capture a special moment during your wedding day.
As a professional live wedding painter I bring my own canvas and art supplies to paint a scene in real-time at your wedding. Beyond having a custom piece of artwork to hang in your home and cherish for years to come, it's also a once-in-a-lifetime experience—one that you, your partner, your family, and guests will be able to witness the creation of firsthand.
"From our first conversation, I knew Erin had to be a part of our wedding day. Her energy, talent and professionalism are truly unmatched. Erin checked in regularly with me before our event, and coordinated effortlessly with all of the vendors. She was a highlight not only for my husband and I, but for our guests! Countless photos were taken of her as she carefully executed this painting during a HUGE party. Erin was the first person to arrive at the church and the LAST person to leave the wedding, perfecting the details of her work. She kept in touch on her progress after the wedding, and worked on meeting us at a mutually convenient location to see the final product. The details are impeccable. From the dress, to the pews, the shine on E's bald head haha- just perfect. So honored to have had Erin be a part of our day, and I hope she can be a part of yours!"
"Erin is an incredible artist! I cannot recommend her enough. She is so kind, thoughtful, genuine and will go above and beyond to make sure your day is perfect. Our guests loved watching her paint during our reception and everyone told us how cool it was! Now we have a wonderful memory from our wedding day that we get to hang proudly in our home!"
"I cannot say enough about our experience with Erin as a Live Wedding Painter!! She was amazing throughout the entire process! Erin reached out to explain exactly what to expect from the experience, discuss my theme, and ideas for our painting. She even spoke directly with the planners at our venue and visited it prior to our ceremony to get a feel for the options and surroundings!
About a week before, Erin checked in with me to finalize plans and ideas for our painting. On the big day, all of our guests were able to watch and interact with her all while she was painting our beautiful wedding scene! It truly is one of our favorite gifts and such a beautiful memory of such an amazing day. We couldn’t be happier!"
"From the moment I got engaged, I knew I needed a live painter for the wedding. I fell in love with the idea of having of having someone paint my husband and I's first dance right in the moment. It felt so intimate and adds an even more personal touch to the portrait. After a lot of research, I chose Erin, and I am SO happy we did. Erin was a doll to work with right from the beginning. She is so kind and helpful, it was like chatting with an old friend. When it came to the wedding day, she was AMAZING. My family cannot stop talking about how nice she was, explaining her techniques, and everyone loved watching her at work! We received our painting recently and OMG, in LOVE! It is so incredible and we cannot wait to hang it in our home forever! I cannot recommend Erin enough and do not have enough words to describe how awesome she and her work is!!"
"Erin was a wonderful live wedding artist and we couldn't be happier with our result! We started with a short phone call about 6 months before the wedding where she explained the process to me and talked through options for our painting. She totally went with my idea of an outdoor painting as we were entering our reception venue, including a bit of a city skyline in the background.
We chatted a week before the wedding to confirm and when we arrived that afternoon, she had been there for a while painting the background and she then photographed us to paint into it. She set up in our cocktail hour space and then moved into the reception space, offering entertainment to our guests all evening long. She contacted me a week later to deliver the final product, and it is a joy to have as we are still eagerly waiting for our photographer's photos!"
"Erin is a true professional, great to work with and extremely talented! She has painted for me personally and done work for my wedding clients. She always blows everyone away with her skill, attention to detail and overall is a joy to be around! Book her today for a wedding or private commission you won't be sorry!"
How does Live Wedding Painting work?
On the day of your event, I will set up at the venue before the ceremony begins, and work throughout the ceremony to capture the scenery, wedding party and guests.
I will provide entertainment for the guests to watch as I continue to finish the painting throughout the event.
After the reception I will take the painting home to allow it to fully dry, as well as add the final details in my studio. Your wedding painting will be mailed or delivered to you when you return from your honeymoon.
