Live wedding paintings are a great way to capture the joy and celebration of a wedding day, as well as provide a special piece of entertainment for the guests. I arrive a few hours before the ceremony to set up and begin painting. I work during the ceremony and continue to paint throughout the evening, capturing the wedding as it unfolds. At the end of the night, the bride and groom have a painting to remember the most wonderful day.

After all the details and planning have been done, let me capture your wedding day with a piece of art.

"I would just like to share what a beautiful, talented job that April did of my daughter's wedding. Our guests  have shared with me how she sketched the entire ceremony site and wedding party down to the color of each of their dresses (which their was 11, and all was different) along with the color of each of their hair, and she did this as each girl walked down the aisle, which is absolutely amazing to me. She finished the painting before the end of the night and it is truly a work of art that will be treasured for a lifetime. April went above and beyond to do this for my daughter and left us with the beautiful piece of art that she created. I would highly recommend her to anyone that is thinking about having a live painter at their wedding!! Thanks again, April!!"

April was so easy to work with! She was able to be flexible with us as we had to move our wedding date due to the Pandemic. She worked quickly during the ceremony and the whole crowd loved getting to view the painting during the reception! We love our painting and she did a phenomenal job! I highly recommend her if you are looking for a unique way to capture the wedding day!! She is beyond talented and this painting is a keepsake we will forever cherish!
