The Moment

You may choose any moment from your wedding day to have captured in your live painting. Feel free to think outside the box!

 

Classic Examples:

-ceremony, first dance, first look.

Unique Examples:

 -cake cutting, seated at the sweetheart table, strolling through a garden or vineyard, walking down a grand staircase, exiting a chapel, leaning against a classic car, seated at a fountain, walking through a forest or field, etc.

Any unique location at the venue may be used for the background. 

Ceremony Poses

Examples:

-first kiss, dip & kiss, walking down the aisle together holding hands, dip & kiss with bouquet, holding the bouquet overhead, holding hands and gazing at each other during the ceremony, etc.

Vertical (Portrait)
Canvas Orientation

Recommended for the 18x24", 20x24" and 24x30" canvases.

Pros:

-the newlyweds are the focal point

-the newlyweds are showcased on a larger scale which allows for greater facial and clothing detail to be captured

Cons:

-less background elements will be captured in the painting

 

Horizontal (Landscape)
Canvas Orientation

 

Recommended for the 20x30" , 24x30" and 24x36" canvases.

Pros:

-greater emphasis on capturing the background details

Cons:

-the couple's portrait will be smaller in proportion to the background, due to the shorter height of a horizontal canvas
