How It Works.

Congratulations on your engagement!

If you'd like to capture your moment of wedding day on canvas accurately, without losing feeling of it, you are in the right place.

1.
Check date availability

  • Check your wedding date availability.

  • All I require is a 20% non-refundable deposit to secure your date. I also provide 2 payments for the balance if you prefer.

2.
Consultation

  • 4 weeks prior to your wedding, I will send you a questionnaire to start planning your painting.

  • I highly recommend allowing me to attend the photo session before/after your ceremony to get the best reference pictures for your painting.

  • During our planning, we will decide on design factors such as background, color theme, scene, pose, and more, tailoring the painting to your preferences. Please feel free to share your vision! If you're unsure, I am here to provide expert suggestions.

  • Scenes include -first kiss, ceremony exit, holding hands, looking each other etc.

3.
The Wedding Day

  • I will arrive before your ceremony to capture reference videos and photos of your scene for the painting, as well as to set up.

  • Seeing me painting your big day will be great entertainment for you and your guests.

  • Before leaving, I will come find you to show the painting of the day. I will then take it to my studio for touch-up.

4.
After Wedding

  • Touch-up will take about 8 to 12 weeks depending on its size.

  • I will varnish it to enhance the colors and protect the painting from UV rays, dust, and yellowing after receiving your final confirmation, which I'll provide by sending you a photo.

  • And the wedding painting is yours to cherish forever!

FAQs

Q. I've already had my wedding. Would you be willing to do a portrait from a photo?

*Photo based commissions are closed at the moment.*

Absoulutely! I can definitely paint your big day from a photo. Please send me an inquiry and will give you a quote.

Q. Do you travel?

I would love to! Travel in Grey Bruce area is included in the price. If your venue is futher than that, a travel fee may apply. 

Q. Can you ship the painting? 

Yes ​I can! I will safely pack and send it to you. Additional shipping charge will apply to you. Please note that if you're located in GTA area, I can hand over your painting in person as I have weddings in the area throughout wedding season.

Q. What do you need at the venue?

All I need is an outlet for the lighting and a small space where I can paint. If the weather is sunny and you'd like me to start your painting in an outdoor ceremony area, a shady space will be needed (e.g. an outdoor umbrella). If the weather is not great, I will need a space to set up under the roof or somewhere I can avoid rain.
