If I'm not photographing a couples special day than you may find me painting live!
There's so many ways to capture your wedding day memories - from photobooths to drones and live-streaming to hashtags. But what better way is there to give yourself a cherished, unique gift than a custom watercolor painting of your event!
Your guests will love the artistic element added to your ceremony, cocktail hour or reception. AND it'll make an awesome conversation starter in your home.
I'm honored to be a part of your BIG day and to capture it in such a unique and special way.
ARTWORK AS UNIQUE AS YOUR LOVE STORY
ready to book?!
There's a impressionistic approach captured in a painting that cannot be captured in photographs or videos. After your wedding photos and video, this is going to be the next most-treasured memory of your wedding.
There's no better way to capture the energy of your special event than with a Live Watercolor Painting. With each paint stroke, the atmosphere transforms into a beautiful painting.
Your guests will be amazed and you'll take home a memento to last for years to come.

My live paintings are created on your wedding day and feature just you and your love. They focus on closely highlighting the bride and groom. Capturing a moment of love where everyone disappears but the two of you. Final paintins will only include the bride, groom, venue and some decor. No guests are featured.
Live wedding paintings begin at 2000. For more details and to learn more about the process please inquire below.
an heirloom created during the very moment it portrays
During booking we’ll discuss the date, time, location, as well as, which scene you would like painted. A well lit ceremony and reception are the most popular!
It includes 5 hours of live painting, materials and the cost of delivery. I will work with you before and after the event to ensure the process is smooth and the final product is something you will treasure forever!
HOW do I BOOK a live painting & what's included?
I paint with high quality watercolor paint on pre-stretched 140lb paper. The paint is non-toxic and extremely quick-drying, allowing for easy clean-up and transport of the painting and my materials after an event.
what materials do you use?
Setup in a location with bright, natural light and accessible to guests is ideal. Together, we'll determine the best spot at the venue prior to your event.
My setup is minimal and easy. I bring my own easel and stool. I do require a small painting area (no more than approx. 4' X 6') in advance of my arrival, inside or outside. A good view of the scene I am painting and sufficient lighting is also ideal.
What's your live painting set-up?
I arrive 1.5 hour before guests arrive to setup and begin the sketching. When guests arrive, they'll soon see the scene come to life. I'll be at the event for approximately 5 hours (including setup). We'll discuss a timeline prior to your event.
Due to the nature of watercolor paint, the painting won't be completed at the event. I'll take back to the studio for finishing touches and framing, if applicable.
How long do you paint & will you finish that night?
The painting will be delivered to you within 8-10 weeks from your big day. If framing is included than this timeframe may not include the framing prep and the actual framing process as it's outsourced and dependant on the framing company.
NOTE: Due to COVID material backorders and shipping delays are common but status updates will be provided.
When will i recieve my finished painting?
I'm located in Elkhorn, NE but more than willing to travel to your event! I require an additional travel cost such as airfare and hotel if the event location is outside of Omaha and the surrounding area. Events within 1.5 hours driving distance from Omaha do not require an overnight stay but a travel fee will be reflected in the total price quote.
