The Process

PAINTING from a PHOTOGRAPH

Do you have a vision for a painting that you wish could become a reality, but you're not sure how to make it so? Well, you've come to the right place! Stephanie is a uniquely talented artist and can work with you to bring your vision to life on canvas.

Stephanie accepts custom orders periodically throughout the year. The next slot will be:




I also understand that you may have tons of questions about the process of creating a painting from a photograph, and I am delighted to answer them. You might find the answers quickly in my FAQs, but if not, please email me directly at info@torregrossafineart.com.


SEPTEMBER 2021 - NOVEMBER 2021

"He who works with his hands is a laborer. He who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman. He who works with his hands and his head and his heart is an artist."

― Saint Francis of Assisi

Yes I can! I use professional photos from your wedding as a reference for the painting. I complete the painting in my studio, and then upon your approval, I coat it with a protective varnish and ship it directly to you. Depending on your location, I may ship it stretched on the canvas, or if you are international, I will remove the canvas from the stretcher bars (frame) and ship it to you rolled in a tube. 

Can you paint a picture of my wedding that has already happened?

My oil portraits start at $1,200 for a 16"x20" painting of one person, and increases in price according to the number of people included in the painting and the size of the canvas. Each quote is customized to fit your vision for your portrait. This cost does not include shipping and insurance which will be required.

How much does it cost for a portrait?

After you submit an order form on my website (button below), and we agree on a canvas size and price, and you have sent me the reference photo to approve, I will send you a contract for the portrait order and invoice for a 25% deposit. Once these items have been handled, your oder will be added to my queue (list).

What is required to book/order a portrait?

I tackled each order at a first come, first served basis. If you would like to request that your painting be completed by a certain date, we can discuss the cost of working overtime to meet that deadline. Again, I am a one-woman show, so each painting will have to wait it's turn.

Can I expedite my order?

Yes! I professionally photograph every painting, and you are welcome to order a canvas print of your finished painting. Canvas prints start at $100 for an 8"x10".

Can I get a copy of the painting made?

I will retain the copyright and the right to show the piece in my portfolio, and will retain slides/computer files/pictures of it for use in exhibits, competitions, etc, including my website. However, I will agree to maintain the anonymity of the subject if requested. You will be granted a non-exclusive license of the image of your painting so long as you provide be with attribution each time you use it for personal use. Personal use includes, but is not limited to: in photos on your personal social media pages or profiles; or in personal creations, such as a reproduction for a home office or commercial office or other public area.

Do you keep a copyright of the image of my painting?

I will be accepting new orders in September 2021, and the first 25 orders are estimated to be completed before Christmas. I will let you know if your order will be completed before Christmas, or if the timeline will be extended. I create each portrait by hand, among other original works and personal projects. I will be transparent about an estimated timeline, and that timeline is subject to change.

When will my portrait be finished?

It has been my passion to serve my collectors with unique and meaningful artwork for a decade, and I will be delighted to create a painting for you as well. If you have read the information above are excited to work together, please contact me to confirm and secure your spot on my portrait list.

Kind Words

Leslie terrebonne

The most emotional and most treasured present I could ever get. I can’t tell you how much this picture means to me. (My dad) was my best friend growing up. That person I could talk to. All I wanted was for him to send me a sign that he was with me on that day. Then Travis Terrebonne (husband) gave me this. He was there. He was with me on our special day. Thank you so much for making my dream come true. My dad walked me down the aisle that day.
