Live painting PRICING
As a wedding painter, the most common question I am asked is: "How much does a live wedding painting cost?" The answer is: it varies!
Live wedding artists are uniquely talented in that they must paint extremely quickly, in ever-changing environments, under immense pressure, with large numbers of spectators watching closely. The paintings that are produced are a direct reflection of their creativity, unique style and skill level, and are valued accordingly.
According to my research, live wedding paintings cost between $2,000-$10,000. Each artist values their work differently. Read about the qualities that differentiate live painters here.
Live painting is a unique entertainment for your wedding guests, but more importantly, the painting that is produced will be a keepsake from your wedding that will last a lifetime. This is the true value of a live wedding painting, and couples around the world will agree that it was their single greatest investment.

Torregrossa Fine Art requires a retainer payment of $1,000. This payment part of the total, not in addition to the total. The remaining balance may be paid in a standard schedule of three (3) payments (one due half-way, one due a month before the wedding, and the last payment due the week of the wedding) or can be split into smaller, more frequent payments. I will work with you on a payment schedule that works for you. The last payment is due on or before the wedding date.
If it's not in the cards for me to paint live at your wedding, whether it's due to lack of availability or budget, I would be delighted to create a painting for you after the wedding, using a professional photograph as a reference. I do these often, and they are incredibly special works of art. A commissioned portrait will range in size and price from 18"x24" of two people - $3,000 to 36" x 48" of 10 people - $9,500.

Of course you can! Whether you want the painting to focus just on the bride and the groom, or you want to include your entire family and bridal party, It is my job to create a painting that matches your vision. After you share about how many people you'd like to include in your painting, I will send you a customized proposal, including three options that will vary in canvas size and price. If you are unsure of how many people you want in your painting, I will offer options that will reflect different numbers of guests. All proposals are based on your vision, and may change at your request.
