On WeddingWire since 2022
Based in Medford, New Jersey, Julia Mooney Live Event Painter and Guest Illustrator acts as memorable wedding entertainment and custom keepsakes. Owner Julia has years of professional training, and plenty of experience painting live. She loves turning a couple's special moments into visual artwork. She specializes in acrylic paint on stretched canvas, showing off love and emotion in each brushstroke. For guest portrait sketches she works in watercolor.
Julia Mooney Live Event Painter and Live Guest Illustrator will arrive at the venue early to ensure plenty of time to set up her equipment and get a strong sense of the venue space. If you are having a live painting done, Julia will capture a quick photograph of your special moment as a reference for her painting. During your celebration, she will paint in front of you and your guests in a fun, non-intrusive manner while you enjoy your celebration to the fullest.
Julia also offers guest illustrations! Live guest illustrations (different than a live wedding painting on canvas) are 5x7" watercolor illustrations of your guests. They take an average of 5 min per guest and they are always a huge hit. Guests can take home their own original art to remember your big day forever! Included in your package is a custom bride and groom drawing that will be delivered after the wedding in a much more refined, detailed style. This allows for the couple to interact and be present on their wedding day with their guests!

My team is me :) I take so much pride in my work - there's no way I will leave you with a sub-par painting. I was formally trained when I earned my Bachelor of Fine Arts at Savannah College of Art and Design back in 2005. Since then I have painted professionally and taught art! My personal oil paintings have won several awards, and my commissions can be found all over the country. I know my reputation is everything, so I make sure to be as professional as possible at all times. I have 2 kiddos and a husband I've been happily married to since before live wedding painting was a thing!
