Wedding Paintings & Portraits

wedding paintingWelcome to your custom wedding painting destination! I look forward to working with you to create the wedding painting of your dreams. My creative process is designed to capture the timeless union of love between two people. A truly unique and special painting can do that in a way that no other medium can.

My wedding painting creative process follows the below steps:


During our consultation we will discuss your ideas, review any photographs and come up with a design plan for your wedding painting. We’ll also find the best canvas size and medium that match your vision for the painting.


Once a design plan is in place, I will create a sketch that captures what we discussed in our consultation. From there, we will work together on any revisions that may be needed. Once the sketch is complete, and you are thrilled with how it looks, we will move on to the fun part — painting!


Once I begin painting, your wedding portrait will begin to take on a whole new life. I will send you pictures throughout the process to ensure it is coming together exactly to your liking. Within 4-8 weeks you will have a completely unique and special, one of kind wedding painting.


Now that you’re completely delighted with how your wedding painting looks, I will wrap it up with love in my custom branded packaging — perfect if you want to give it as a gift! I will also wrap it in specially formatted art packaging to ensure it stays in perfect condition during its arrival to you.


The price of your custom wedding painting ranges from $500 – $2,000 depending on size, level of detail and scope of work. I request a 50% deposit to begin the commission with the final amount due prior to shipment or pick up. Three changes are included in the price of the commission. A small fee will be charged for additional changes.
