seriously, this is pretty special
My favorite part was receiving the paintings! Everything from the thoughtful note to the gorgeous packing was so special and I could see how much care had been taken.
It was just wonderful to open up the envelope and find some beautiful special memories committed to paper and so stunningly interpreted, and when I realized you had merged our very cherished dog from another image into the one you painted so that nothing was missing. We really feel like you captured the feeling of the day, the tones and the dreamy quality. We adore art and to have pieces that actually feature one of our most important days is just amazing.

After our first call I could tell you were super genuine and would do everything you could to make the painting perfect!
My favorite part was watching the painting come to life throughout the night! It was so fun checking in every so often to see what new details had been added. I also love that we can pick out our moms and certain family members in the painting. I still can't get over how good the colors look, and how many details (like the cake spacer!) you were able to add.

"Courtney is the perfect combination of professionalism, kindness, creativity and entertainment."
She arrives on time, comes with her own setup and will be as interactive or tucked away as you would like. She creates amazing, detailed pieces that can be hung in your home for many years to come. At the last wedding we had with Courtney, she had little girls lining up to watch her paint and ask her questions!

THE CREATIVE PROCESS
admire your heirloom
Hang your one-of-a-kind fine art masterpiece and admire your commissioned painting that will last a lifetime.
Every commission is unique, so proposals are tailored to suit your unique needs, aesthetic, emphasize the design elements you treasure and are most excited about. Signature commission collections begin at $1,000.
Courtney takes care to capture the perfect moment. Courtney manages all the logistics—composition, materials, draft sketches, digital sketch, revisions, and final product—and shares behind the scenes looks with you.
We'll set up a meeting and chat about your wedding – all the details, your unique love story, and your vision for the painting.
You'll be spending that money on something — Starbucks, exquisite dinners — wouldn't it be better to spend it on something that you will actually treasure for a lifetime?
Over the years, Courtney has found that every commission is different and comes with its own set of needs. For this reason, all quotes are made on an individual basis. Full service collections begin at $1,000, but contact Courtney for a more specific outline of your investment.
Because, you could do the same thing everyone else is doing — print out your beautiful photos, maybe a few go on your wall and the rest go in an album tucked away on your shelf for safe keeping...
You can do that AND work with an artist one-on-one to intentionally create a one-of-a-kind original heirloom of the feeling using your photos and video as inspirational reference, then frame your painting and cherish it forever.
