There are many different options to consider when designing your custom wedding portrait. I have put together a brief introduction below to get you started. Please feel free to get as creative as you like, the possibilities are endless!

The Moment

Examples include:

ceremony, first dance, first look, a portrait at any location on the property, etc.

Details to consider:

Ceremony Pros: 

-often occurs during the daytime; natural light provides an array of lovely colors and textures 

-the moment holds significance  

-ceremony decor and backdrop will be captured

First Dance Pros:

-elements of the reception such as candles, flowers, wedding cake, fog, sparklers, architecture, etc will be incorporated

-a dancing pose may add more movement to the painting

First Look or Additional Location Pros:

-opportunity to capture a location on the property that may not be highlighted otherwise

-the location may depict the charm or character of the venue

-any pose may be chosen 

Ceremony Poses

Canvas Orientation

Vertical Pros:

-portrait style

-great for tall background structures such as architecture, chandeliers, trees, waterfalls, etc.

Horizontal Pros:

-landscape style

-captures a wide view of the background

-the couple's portrait may be smaller in proportion to the background due to the shorter height of a horizontal canvas vs a vertical canvas
