Park Chateau April Brunch Wedding
Amanda created such a heartfelt gift for me and my family to cherish for generations. From the moment I first connected with Amanda, I felt completely comfortable and at ease knowing she would capture the emotions of our wedding day perfectly. I went back and forth for several weeks debating if we should include a live painter in our celebration. Having Amanda at our wedding was hands down one of the best decisions we’ve made and an absolute highlight of the reception - we are so thrilled with the final painting! My family and friends were stunned (many had never seen a live painter before), and thought it was such a unique touch to our special day.Sent on 05/05/2019
We cannot wait to display our painting proudly in our home. We're thrilled to recommend Amanda to anyone we meet! A million thanks!

Best decision ever!
Having a live wedding painter at our wedding was one of the best decisions to make and Amanda was absolutely amazing. Everyone was in awe and when she revealed the painting to us, we could not stop staring at the details. She drew our first dance and whenever I look at it, it just brings me back to that moment. She captured it perfectly. Thank you Amanda for you wonderful talent, beautiful person inside and out!Sent on 09/18/2019

Amazing experience working with Amanda from beginning to end and she created an absolutely incredible painting capturing our wedding ceremony
WOW! We are completely blown away by Amanda! Amanda has such talent and ability to paint not only what is physically in front of her but also emotions and energy— amazing! Our painting came out absolutely incredible and we could not be more pleased with her ability to capture the moment. She is incredibly easy to work with, completely down to earth, a wonderful person, and was able to satisfy every need we had. We would recommend Amanda to anyone! We could not be more happy of the piece we received that will represent our special day for generations to come. This painting was the most special gift we have ever received and it will be a centerpiece of our new home. Thank you Amanda!!!Sent on 11/06/2019

most memorable wedding gift
We reached out to a few event painters before our wedding but after speaking with Amanda we knew we had found the perfect person to capture our special day. She is so sweet and SO talented! She was able to incorporate our gorgeous venue and all of the special details we wanted highlighted, while keeping my husband and I the focus. Our guests loved watching her work and have been talking about it for weeks. Most importantly, our wedding was on Amanda's birthday! It proved how passionate she is about her work and shows she truly loves bringing joy to her clients lives. We are so excited to have this painting for years to come!Sent on 09/30/2019

A Stunning Mosaic of Moments.
If you're on the fence about hiring a live event painter, let me tell you that it was the BEST decision we made! But here's the catch -- you can't hire any artist, you've got to book Amanda. But reach out to her as early as you can, she's super popular for a reason.
Not only is she an incredibly talented creative, she is such a lovely person. From our first phone call, we felt completely at ease by her warmth and caring presence. It was important to us to hire vendors that were passionate about their work (weddings are hard and people get jaded, we get it) but Amanda loves what she does. You won't get some cookie cutter painting. Her style hard to capture in words -- it's got so much lovely movement and texture. You have to see it. We told Amanda we didn't want her to paint a specific scene and without skipping a beat, she said, "I can do a mosaic of moments." We couldn't believe how many details she incorporated for us.
Our wedding day happened to be the hottest day of the year and Amanda was outside working her magic without any complaint. We couldn't be more appreciative! And we are still in awe over how she managed to chat with our friends and family all night long yet, still create such a stunning painting for us. That takes major skill! It is currently hanging up in our living room and captures our memories in way that photos can't.Sent on 10/16/2019

The Perfect Keepsake
Amanda is simply fantastic. My husband and I got married on 7/13/19 in NJ and we were lucky enough to have her paint our first dance ( it was my wedding gift - best husband ever!!!) Amanda’s ability to capture the playfulness and sweetness of our first dance made us so happy! Initially I saw her work through my venue’s Instagram page. I decided to reach out to her and in an instant I knew I wanted her to be part of our day! My husband and I had the best time at our wedding but it went by so quickly! Now, we can relive our day each time we look at our painting! Amanda was kind enough to share with our guests her expertise and her work was a fun conversation piece for all of our guests as well! Everyone was amazed by how she quickly worked to recreate the magic of our first dance. She was the perfect addition to our day ! If you are thinking about having a live event painter, Amanda is your girl! We are so grateful!Sent on 07/22/2019

Best vendor ever!
Amanda was one of the best vendors we worked with for our April 2019 wedding! We are absolutely blown away by how stunningly beautiful and truly PERFECT our portrait is. Not to mention that she is the sweetest person to interact with! My husband’s father passed away last year and it was important to my husband to feel like his dad was still a part of our special day. As a surprise for my husband, Amanda was able to take a photo that i sent her of my late father-in-law and she painted him in the portrait along with the rest of our parents. He recognized his dad right away and teared up. Worth every penny!!Sent on 07/08/2019

Best decision ever!
We were absolutely blown away by Amanda's painting of our wedding. We had looked at many different artists' works while choosing a painter, and Amanda's effortless and natural style was by far our favorite. Seeing the painting during our reception was one of my favorite moments of the night, and we are beyond thrilled with the end result. I know the painting will be one of our most cherished possessions.Sent on 06/21/2019
One of the things we keep hearing from our guests was how cool and unique it was to see Amanda paint our wedding night. This was definitely one of the best decisions we made for our wedding, and I would recommend Amanda to anyone in a heartbeat!

Amanda is amazin! This was a last minute decision and probably the best decision! I reached out to Amanda a few weeks before my wedding to see if she happened to be available and would be willing to paint our wedding. Luckily for us she was available. I decided to surprise my soon to be husband with this as we did not buy each other wedding gifts or write each other letters. Every single person in that room was amazed by her. She is such a talented individual. She happily conversated with our guests and made everyone feel welcome to come by and view her progress. That painting is something we will cherish for the rest of our lives. The finished product was better than i could of imagined. I would recommend her whole heartly!Sent on 03/14/2019

Unique Wedding Idea
Amanda painted our wedding day in watercolor as a gift from my father in law and it absolutely surpassed our expectations! The final product is absolutely gorgeous and our guests couldn’t stop raving about the experience the whole night. Amanda is such a lovely person, she was so easy to work with and a true professional. She asked in her questionnaire the colors I liked and disliked and what setting I envisioned and she executed it perfectly. Can’t wait to have it framed and find an excuse to have her paint something else for us!Sent on 11/26/2018

We met Amanda at our first ever bridal showcase. We never knew about live art paintings but when we saw Amanda's work we knew we had to have her at our wedding.

Amanda is an UNBELIEVABLE artist with an even better heart!
Amanda is an UNBELIEVABLE artist with an even better heart! She was a pleasure to work with, and created the most special memory that we will cherish for years to come. She even painted in my husband's late nana, which was so meaningful to us. I can't recommend her enough. Her love for her work shows through every brush stoke and I'm so thankful to have this painting to remember our special day!Sent on 02/10/2019

I only got married a couple of days ago and I couldn’t wait any longer to write a review about Amanda. My experience with her was absolutely phenomenal, all the way from our first point of contact. She is incredibly responsive, friendly, and easy to work with. Not only is she easy to work with, but also she is incredibly talented! Her painting of our wedding is even better than I hoped for, and I haven’t even seen the finished product yet! All of our guests loved interacting with her throughout the night and I loved seeing her progress via her Instagram story the day after our wedding. I highly recommend Live Well Paint Often for your live painter!Sent on 05/31/2018
