Live portraits offer a unique way to keep your wedding memories alive forever. I will capture the magic of a special moment and create a one-of-a-kind portrait in high-quality graphite pencil and charcoal. 
Each package includes between 4-8 hours of live sketching and additional time spent in the studio capturing additional details and adding realism to your portrait.

How it works

Approximately 6 weeks before your date, we will discuss all of the details for your portrait including taking photos, poses, where to set up etc. I will arrive approximately 45 minutes early to set up and start planning your portrait. Depending on what we discussed prior to the date, I will take a photo during the ceremony to sketch (for bronze package only) or follow you and your photographer for an exclusive photo shoot to capture the pose and background you would like sketched (for silver and gold packages only). Once a photo has been chosen, I will head back to my easel and start the portrait. Due to the intricate and time consuming nature of graphite pencil, a small projector will be used to roughly sketch the composition and proportions of the portrait so the portrait can come to life sooner throughout the day. From this sketch, I will create a realistic timeless piece of art that will be near finished at the end of my time at the venue. I will take the portrait home and add further detailing and realism to the piece which will be carefully packaged and hand delivered to you 2-6 weeks later. 


I am more than happy to travel for your special day, however travel fees will apply for interstate and overseas bookings. Please note, interstate bookings can be booked up to 6 months in advance due to flight schedule information. Travel fee for interstate travel - $750 (price may vary depending on time of year and location).
