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 become one of our most cherised possessions.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
If we’re taking our painting home the night of the wedding, will it still be wet? . . .
No! Acrylic paint is fast-drying and it will be dry for you to take home. A note: only our Silver Package clients have the option to take home their painting the night of the wedding; for our other packages, we finish the painting in our studio.
How long does it take to get my finished painting? . . .
Silver Package clients take their painting home the night of the event. Our other packages have larger canvases and require more detail work, so we finish it at our studio. It takes about 10-12 weeks for the painting to be finished. For NYC and Long Island clients, we’ll be in touch to arrange a date to personally deliver your painting; for clients who live further away, we ship your painting to you for an additional fee. Don’t worry - we get it packaged professionally so it won’t be damaged en route!
Can you paint from a photograph? . . .
Yes - but please note that the only option for painting from a photograph is our watercolor painting style. We don't offer watercolor for live events but would be thrilled to do it from a photograph after your event. This is a great anniversary gift!
How long are you there? When do you get there, and when do you leave? . . .
We arrive about two hours before the ceremony or reception starts, depending on the moment you choose for to paint. You can choose ceremony, first dance, cake cutting, or any other moment on your wedding day for us to capture; most clients opt for ceremony or first dance. We generally leave after the cake cutting.
I purchased your Rose Gold or Platinum Package. How do you know which members of my family and bridal party to paint? . . .
Ahead of your wedding, we’ll ask for a list of family members/bridal party names AND photos of each person, so when we’re adding them to your painting, we know who to look for in the crowd.
Can my guests watch you paint? . . .
Yes - that’s the beauty of live event painting: we’re part of the entertainment for the night. We usually set up in a corner of the room, both so we can get a better angle for painting and so we’re a part of - but not in the middle of - the action. Guests often come by, watch for a few minutes, then get back to mingling, dancing, and celebrating. We love being a part of your wedding, yet not taking attention away from the main event: you!
My wedding is a Saturday, but I want to book you for the Silver Package - is that possible? . . .
Due to our schedule, which often gets booked up to two years in advance, we’re only available to book Saturday nights for our Rose Gold or Platinum package.
Do you teach art classes? . . .
Yes! Amanda teaches art classes on Long Island. They’re not your usual paint-and-sip classes: she uses principles of fine art to help each guest create a frame-worthy work of art, no matter your skill or experience level. Check out our upcoming events and dates here.
Do you ever do events for charity? . . .
Live Well Paint Often is dedicated to philanthropy. Not only do we donate our time to paint charity events to raffle off the painting, we also donate our time and 10% of our proceeds to organizations like Hope for Youth and Katie’s Project. Amanda also teaches free art classes to dementia patients, youth transitioning from foster care, and children living with terminal illnesses.
