I wasn't at the above wedding, my daughter was in the bridal party and this was her gift to the bride and groom. This was a tricky one, I had to piece together more reference photos than usual, the sun was directly behind them causing the sky to be white and their head outlines were heavily vignetted and blurred. Size: 16" x 12". Below is a screen shot my daughter sent me from the bride...

Here's a quick run through of how Live Event Painting works. We can meet ahead of time, this can be at the venue, to discuss the scene you want depicted, where I'll be situated, who you want featured and any other details. The day of the event I'll arrive early to start painting the background whether it's an indoor or outdoor scene. We can possibly "stage" a part of the scene ahead of time (bride and groom walking back up the aisle after they're married, cake cutting, etc.) and I'll take some photos, since when that moment comes it will pass by in an instant and the photographers usually get the right of way. This painting is as much entertainment for your guests as it is a keepsake, if I'm not finished during the event, I'll take it home, finish it and deliver it when it's done.

A little bit about me...
My name is Marty Macaluso, I've been a graphic designer and party caricature artist since 1978. I do caricatures at many weddings each year (feel free to peruse my website) so I'm familiar with weddings and 'catching' people, they're expressions, personality and body language. My style is fairly realistic, adding the little bodies make them look more like caricatures. As with caricatures, much can pass for live event painting, from realistic styles to cartoony styles, while doing caricatures I constantly overhear people saying "his picures really look like the people".

In 2011, I had a bride-to-be call me asking if I could do a painting of her ceremony during the first hour and caricatures for the rest of the reception (see the photo montage below). I agreed and did the picture
using watercolors and markers, that hour flew by, the painting went quickly, though it was very loose, they loved it! I now know that watercolors are not the way to go with these.

Here's my latest in-progress painting, no this is not a Mormon wedding taking place in NYC, it's in-progress. I decided to move the bride closer and didn't paint out the other bride yet (that's one of the things you can't do with watercolors). Size: 24" x 12".
