Live Wedding Paintings

"...the painting she created for us was outstanding. Her attention to detail in capturing both myself and my husband, as well as the detail she gave our parents makes it without a doubt our favourite wedding memory." - Kristen, Bride


1. Poke around the site

There is lots to see - photos, videos, reviews from past couples, FAQs, some general information about the process.


Do you travel for weddings?

Absolutely! Although I am based in Kitchener Ontario Canada I am more than happy to travel to paint your wedding. Travel accommodations are in addition to the live painting package pricing.

I want you at my wedding! How far ahead should I inquire?

In short, I would advise to inquire as soon as you've decided you want me there! Since I am a single artist I can only be at one event at a time. You can see my availability and calender here inquire here

How do you decide what to paint?

Well, I work with you to decide what you want to have painted! Some common scenes are first dances, first kisses at the altar, ceremony exits, and reception entrances. But I am always open to other scenes that are special to you.

What kind of supplies do you use?

I use artist quality water-based acyrlic paints on either stretched cotton canvas or wood panel.

Will my painting last forever?

I use high quality art materials that will stand the test of time. With proper care and maintenance your painting could last lifetimes.

"Emily was absolutely amazing to work with! Her painting captured every detail of the night perfectly. We feel so fortunate to have such a unique piece of art to display to remember our wedding." Alex, bride
