It’s important to discuss the estimated timeline with your chosen artist to ensure that it aligns with your wedding schedule.

2. Can I request specific moments to be painted?

Absolutely! Your live painter is there to bring your vision to life. You can discuss specific moments you want to be captured, whether it’s the first dance, exchanging of vows, or cutting the cake. Communicate your desires with the artist, and they will do their best to accommodate your requests.

3. How do I choose the right size of the painting?

The size of the painting depends on your personal preference and the available space in your home. Consider where you plan to display the painting and measure the area to determine the appropriate size. Discuss the options with your live painter, as they may have recommendations based on their experience.

4. Can I customize the painting after the wedding?

Most live painters offer the option to customize the painting after the wedding. This allows you to make any minor adjustments or additions to ensure the painting accurately reflects your memories. Discuss this possibility with your chosen artist to see if they offer post-wedding customization services.

5. How should I care for the live painting?

Live paintings are typically created using acrylic oil paints, which require special care to preserve their longevity. Your live painter will provide you with specific instructions on how to care for the painting, including recommendations for cleaning, framing, and displaying it. Follow these instructions to ensure the painting remains vibrant and beautiful for years to come.

* Personal details are actual facial features or unique characteristics of people in your party based on in-person meetings or photos supplied by the client.
