About

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.

Services Offered

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!

Perfection!

Beautiful work, beautiful person, beautiful memories. I am so unbelievably grateful that the universe sent me the gift of Julia. I decided to book Julia’s services as a surprise gift for my then-fiance on our wedding day. Julia was a true joy to work with, especially given that we had the added element of keeping her a surprise. She coordinated with our venue directly and took my payments incrementally, so my husband wouldn’t notice the loss. I’ve attached the pictures here, but truly nothing does her artwork justice. HIGHLY recommend!

Beautiful Portrait to Last A Lifetime!

Julia's work of art is something that we will be able to cherish from our wedding day for many years to come! She is an incredibly talented artist and she is super easy to work with! She is always able to answer questions, and is a true master of her craft. Her portrait of us is something that we still get asked about after our wedding and is a beautiful gift for us to remember the best day of our lives forever! If you are interested in getting a live painter for your wedding, pick Julia! She is truly incredible!

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!
