It was an incredible representation of our special moment and are so happy we have this painting forever. Our guests were amazed when they saw Katherine painting throughout the evening and we received so many compliments! If you are thinking about having an event painter, Katherine is THE best option!

    An incredibly detailed and unique way to capture our magic moment!

    When my husband and I started wedding planning, hiring a Live Painter was something we knew we wanted, as it’s such a unique and special experience to include in a wedding. After doing our research, we found Katherine. We absolutely loved her esthetic and attention to detail and knew she was the painter we wanted to capture our day.

    On top of Katherine’s paintings being incredible, she is so caring and sweet. Part of Katherine’s planning process in the weeks leading up to the wedding, includes an extensive questionnaire about what you want in your painting. I loved that she did this, as it gave her an opportunity to know what we wanted. Not only did she include everything that we asked for, she went above and beyond to really portray our day. She was so detailed, she even painted our soup and salad appetizer at each place setting on the table. We were beyond impressed.

    Additionally, our guests loved seeing her work throughout the night. Having her added an extra level of entertainment for our guests that they were truly impressed with. She made great progress by the end of the night. We are so in love with our painting and can’t wait to hang it in our home.

    I had the pleasure of working with Katherine on a gorgeous winter wedding in the Hudson Valley. Her painting is nothing short of amazing! I could not believe how quickly she could paint a scene from the wedding with such extraordinary detail and care. If you are looking to preserve your wedding memories in addition to your wedding photography in a very unique manner, having a live event painter at your wedding is an investment you will not regret. Your painting will be cherished for generations.
