From Brides After Doing Caricatures During Their Weddings.
Excerpts from a series of e-mails... (March 2014)
"My husband, Tom, & I had the pleasure of having you do our "characatures" at a wedding in NJ two years ago. At the time, I took your card and hoped that someday, we might want/need your services.
Our son is getting married this October in Easton, CT. Would you be available and could you provide us with any details along with your pricing?
Your art hangs on the door of our office in our home. It's such fun to look at it and remember that event.
Look forward to hearing from you."
After I sent them my info...
"Looking forward to seeing you do your "magic" once again! Always fun!!
Overheard while I was drawing at the wedding...
"Everybody loves you! He's the busiest guy in Connecticut!
Caricature artists at wedding receptions always draws a crowd but the Bride & Groom
go to the front of the line whenever they're ready. Caricatures are a unique wedding
entertainment idea, the idea of having a caricature artist during a wedding has become
less unusual or unconventional and more the mainstream.
Every artist has their own style, my caricature style looks very much like the people, with just enough exaggeration weather in the bodies or the heads to be fun and not be insulting. Right when people sit
and talk a little, I can easily tell who I can fool around with more or less.
That's me doing walkaround or strolling caricatures during both the cocktail hour and the reception.
Usually I'll be set-up somewhere and people will come to me, but this is fun too.

Some recent Bridal Shower Caricatures, word got around that I had a "slimming pen", I was busy.
This was in the Bronx, but I felt like it was down south with almost everyone wearing the big floppy hats.
Having a caricature artist at an engagement party is also very entertaining.
Some caricatures done
during a 50th anniversary party. My style of caricatures lends itself well
to adult parties like engagement parties, weddings & anniversaries. Usually at things like first
holy communion parties and Bar Mitzvahs the adults can't wait until the kids are done so that
they can start getting done too. Caricatures make unique wedding favors, great for all ages.

A caricature artist is a reasonably priced form of entertainment,
or small backyard weddings.

at a Wedding?
Sure, why not . . . having a caricature artist at a wedding goes over very well
at 30th and 40th surprise parties, anniversaries and rehearsal
dinners, so why not weddings? Usually while doing a bar mitzvah
I'm constantly approached by adults asking if they can get one
done. There's always that percentage of people that would love
something else to do than dance. Usually I sit down and people come to me, but sometimes I'll walk around to tables to do them.
Guests at a wedding never expect to see a caricaturist there, once they realize I'm there, I'm busy. About the only hurdle is that the caricatures shouldn't be thought of as "the favor", not everyone wants to get one. Sometimes a wife will drag over her husband, or I get
groups of men or women. One of the woman in this group below suggested that I make up a new background; "You should make a scene with the woman doing the laundry, cooking, cleaning and the guy sitting with a beer and the remote." So I did and it's one of the pre-drawn backgrounds I take with me to parties that people can choose from if they want.
The only people that seem to get a little nervous are the maitre-di's.
Some aren't too used to this yet, Once one even insisted that
I "Take a break" because too many people were (enjoying)
hanging around me. He had me set-up outside the room because it was too tight inside and wanted them to go in and dance, but they
just waited around for me to come back.
Caricature artist for a wedding, some things to consider:
• That the artist is in the same room as your guests.
(I've been left
· in the lobby, or the adjoining
room where the cocktail hour was.)
• Try to have the artist show you some "actual live
· "celebrity samples" or "studio
samples". Just to make sure that
· the pictures will resemble
your guests and that they aren't too
· exaggerated or ugly. I tell people that most of
· is in the bodies, but the pictures
are very complimentary. My
· style of caricatures lends itself well to weddings and invitations.
• The minimum amount of time an artist will work. Usually
· two or three hours. You
can't expect someone to come for just
· the cocktail hour, also that
your getting the artist your talking to.
• These can usually be done in black and white or color, the
· color is nicer looking,
but the b&w go faster, sometimes I'll do
· the people in the bridal party in color and invited guests in b&w
• They supply clear plastic bags to protect the finished
· from the weather and spills.
• Any extra charges -sometimes travel expenses (tolls,
I did a quick live watercolor rendering of the bride & groom getting married at Nunley's Carousel
on Long Island, then did walkaround caricatures for the rest of the night.
This is more commonly known as Live Event Painting, click here for more on these!
Here's a scene from a very low-keyed backyard wedding I recently did on Long Island.
Every now and then while doing a birthday party a couple will say they are getting married soon
and ask if I can do some sort of a bride & groom caricature of them.
Here's a montage of caricatures I did at during recent wedding!
