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.
I am pleased to offer several Wedding Painting Packages.
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). Note cards and gicleé prints included. Please allow two months for completion.
With permission from the photographer, I 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 gicleé prints.
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.
We will set up at agreed upon locations and compose three paintings throughout the day. With the use of photography, each piece will then meticulously completed in the studio and shipped to you. Allow three months for completion. Includes note cards and 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 I believe this painting will become a family heirloom, something to be cherished by your family for generations, I 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 I begin the process of creating your heirloom painting, I make sure the surface is meticulously prepared. I 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, and ready to frame.
On location at your wedding I set up my easel in an advantageous location. Fleeting light, color, emotion and gesture inform my compositions which imbibes the work with a fluent and naturalistic style. I keep that same energy and movement alive in the studio as I meticulously transform your painting into a family heirloom.
Each painting is professionally wrapped and placed in a custom made crate and shipped fully insured. I allow 60 days to complete and ship each painting.
