One day, you discovered this wonderful thing called live event painting, maybe at a wedding you attended or while scrolling on social media. Impressed, you tucked the idea away from safe keeping. Now that you're planning your very own wedding (or special event), you've begun searching for the best live wedding painting artist to hire, and that search has led you here.
Wedding planning and decision-making can be overwhelming, I know this firsthand, so I've streamlined my booking process to help you develop or clarify your vision for your painting, select the perfect canvas size for your space, and book your date quickly and without hassle.
I also understand that you may have tons of questions about my process as a live wedding painter, and I am delighted to answer them. You might find the answers below, but if not, please contact me directly.
Consider the following criteria when booking your wedding artist:
Stephanie paints with a relatively realistic style. The figures in her paintings are drawn with near perfect proportions, from the dimples on their cheeks down to the lace detail in the bride's gown. When she studies the room, she notices all the details that you spent months obsessing over, and she makes sure to include each piece.
With this attention to detail, Stephanie works closely with her brides, hand-selecting the recognizable people she will add in the painting before the wedding day.
If would like your wedding painter to work quietly and undisturbed in a corner or separate room, then please continue your search. Stephanie's extroverted personality makes her approachable and entertaining. She enjoys dancing along with the music, and truly adding more energy to the party. She welcomes all questions, comments and compliments with a smile and candid reply. You may even see her pass the brush to one of the kids who are bound to be captivated by her performance.
Every wedding is a unique adventure, designed around the couples' aesthetic and personal taste. Stephanie's wedding paintings are unique works of art that are tailored to fit your vision, emphasize your design elements, and fit beautifully in your home. These are, in fact, everlasting works of art. The price of a wedding painting will vary based on canvas size, the time frame of the ceremony and reception, and the number of people included in the painting. Prices start at $4,000.
Stephanie works independently, and does not have back-ups or other artists to provide when she is booked for a certain date. Your first move should be to confirm availability on your date as soon as possible. This also determines if another artist will be a better fit. Stephanie does not book December weddings, however, if your wedding is in December, or if she is or was unavailable for your date, she can create a painting of your wedding or reception scene using your professional photographs as references. Contact her for more details.
Where one might notice each individual element in a room separately, Stephanie sees the scene before her as a whole, composing her live paintings with technical skill and creative authority. Her authentic good nature invites you to watch closely, and her ability to capture detail will blow you away.
From traditional oil portraits, to custom artwork that fits your home perfectly, Stephanie loves to work one-on-one with client's to create something that they will cherish for a lifetime.
