Great experience, beautiful painting

Angelis was lovely to work with and is truly SO talented. She was very professional, easy to communicate with and punctual the day of. She captured my husband and I perfectly. Guests loved watching her work and were so astounded by how beautiful the painting was and how much it really resembled us. Several people mentioned that they had seen live painters at other weddings but they weren’t as detail oriented with their work as Angelis. She also packaged the painting very carefully and it arrived in pristine condition. If I had to do it all over again I would work with her in a heartbeat!

Angelis was amazing to work with! Our wedding was on June 8, 2024 and it was simply breathtaking. She worked with us every step of the way and the painting is absolutely amazing, and it's not even the final product! I can't wait to receive the final product!

My son and daughter in laws wedding

I hired Angelis to paint my son and daughter in laws first dance and the painting was just even better than I imagined! She made the process so easy and was so professional and so sweet to deal with. The day of the wedding she was there way in advance and everyone loved going over to watch her paint. Her talent is beyond anything you can imagine. The painting is just absolutely beautiful. We were all so happy with her that I now also booked her for my daughter’s wedding next October! If you’re looking for a live painter stop and hire Angelis you will be so happy you did.
