You are one-of-a-kind and so is my work. Backed by 30 years of experience as a live figurative painter, I bring bright, beautiful artwork into your life by recreating your romance on canvas.
Imagine the magical and intimate ambiance manifested by having one of our artists at their easel, thoughtfully immortalizing your walk down the aisle, your wedding vows, first dance, or another special moment. We are pleased to offer several Wedding Painting Packages uniquely designed to create a luxurious experience for you and your guests while elegantly immortalizing your wedding.
Please note that the packages below do not include travel and expenses. Please refer to the Travel Expenses section at the end of this page for approximate travel-related fees. Once we have received your initial inquiry and worked with you to solidify all the details, we will provide you with an invoice and itinerary inclusive of all aspects of your live wedding painting from arrival to your receipt of the finished painting(s).
One oil painting created live at your wedding or event and completed in the Studio. This piece may be any size up to 30”x40” (30” x 40” / 76.2 cm x 101.6 cm). This package includes one set of note cards of your painting and two gicleé prints. Please allow two months for completion.
Weddings are filled with poignant, exquisite moments and sometimes it’s hard to choose which is the one you wish to immortalize in a painting–whether it’s you in your dressing room surrounded by bridesmaids and family, your ceremony, first dance or something else…. For these reasons we designed this luxury package. We will arrive early at agreed upon locations, set up and compose three paintings throughout the day, and with the use of photography, each piece will then be meticulously completed in the studio and shipped to you. Allow three months for completion. Includes note cards and two gicleé prints of each painting.
Our artist, Joseph Loccisano will set up a small area at your reception and invite guests to sit for either individual or ‘couple’ charcoal and graphite portraits that will be professionally matted and given to guests. It is our experience that guests enjoy posing and observing the artist’s process.
This combines the Your Love Story and Graphite Sketches packages to provide a unique artistic experience at your wedding!
Some venues do not allow painters to work live, in which case we use photography. We will come to your event and take photos (not to compete with your photographer). The photos we use will be for documentation when working in the studio. Allow 60 days for completion. Includes note cards and two gicleé prints.
For those who are unable to host us at the wedding, and with permission from the photographer, we will create a unique painting with a photo you provide. Artist discretion will be used for selecting a photo that works as a painting. Allow 60 days for completion. Includes note cards and two gicleé prints.

Once you decide to include live painting in your wedding celebration, we chat on the phone and discuss your painting. Some clients are very specific about the scene, while others allow the artist to observe and decide on-site. Either way, the conversation allows us to understand who you are and the type of work that best describes and inspires you. Because we believe this painting will become a family heirloom, something to be cherished by your family for generations, we listen very carefully to everything you say about who you are and how you envision your love story to be immortalized in a fine art oil painting.
Before we begin the process of creating your heirloom painting, we meticulously prepare the surface. We use oil-primed linen, canvas, or panels prepared with gesso handcrafted in the tradition of the old masters. Each surface is underpainted in a neutral tone in keeping with academic traditions. Finally, your painting will be varnished, signed by the artist, and ready to frame. We also offer framing upon request.
On location at your wedding we set up our easel in an unobtrusive location. Fleeting light, color, emotion and gesture inform our compositions which imbibes the work with a fluent and naturalistic style. We keep that same energy and movement alive in the studio as we meticulously transform your painting into a family heirloom.
Each painting is professionally wrapped and placed in a custom made crate and shipped fully insured. We allow 60 days to complete and ship each painting.
