FAQ: Weddings

How Does the Process Work?

  • We meet with the bridal couple before the event to discuss their wedding, either in person or by Skype. The couple is provided with a check list of scenes and images. This list is just a template and we work with the bride and groom to determine what images are most important to them. Some of these images may include
    • First Look
    • Vows/Ceremony
    • First dance
    • Toasts: maid of honor, best man
    • Cutting the cake
    • Reception tables
    • Bridal bouquet
  • Each book is 10×10 inches in full color with dust jacket and lay flat pages. The books are minimum 20 pages and include approximately 15-25 images. The books are four color..
  • We typically arrive 2-3 hours before your ceremony to draw the bride prep and have an opportunity to draw various scenes that may be used in the book.
  • Guests enjoy watching us draw the unfolding events however we are careful to meld into the background.
  • Once we have completed the artwork we will create a draft book for the bridal couple’s review.
  • If I couple would like to purchase the artwork, we offer the artwork separately and each piece is approximately 11 x 14 in either watercolor or colored pencil. The original artwork is on 100% rag paper.
  • The entire process to get your final book can take several months.
  • Options such as note cards, prints or other novelties can be made using the images. Price on request.
