I am often asked about the cost of live wedding paintings in Hawaii. It's a common question and one that is important for couples to consider as they plan their special day. I will try to break down the cost of live wedding paintings and explain why they are worth the investment.
First, it's important to understand that the cost of a live wedding painting in the United States can vary greatly depending on the quality, reliability, and experience of the artist. Artists who specialize in live wedding paintings often use a variety of media, from watercolors to oil paintings on canvas. While watercolors are generally less expensive, and acrylic paintings are very popular, oil paintings are known for their superior quality, durability, and longevity. When hiring an artist for a live wedding painting, it's important to research their portfolio, reviews, and experience to ensure the best possible result.
The cost of a live wedding painting in Hawaii can vary widely depending on another two main factors: the size of the painting and the number of hours described in each package. I choose to work with the best oil paintings on the market, and my packages range from a 16" x 20" canvas for 4 hours of live ceremony or reception oil painting to a 30" x 40" canvas for 4 hours of live painting and an additional 18 hours in the studio for underlayers of painting before the wedding and retouching after the wedding. The additional hours in the studio for underlayers of painting before the wedding and retouching after the wedding ensures that the final piece is a true masterpiece. The pricing for these packages ranges from $1550 to $5400, with additional travel costs for events on different islands potentially adding to the total from $700 to $900, depending on the date of the booking.
While some may initially see the cost of a live wedding painting as a luxury or an unnecessary expense, it's important to consider the value that it brings. A live wedding painting is a unique and personalized way to capture the magic and beauty of your special day. It's a tangible piece of art that can be cherished for generations to come, and it serves as a beautiful and meaningful reminder of your love story.
A live wedding painting is not just a beautiful work of art, it's also a form of entertainment for your guests. Watching an artist at work is a captivating experience that will add a touch of magic to your wedding day. Guests will be able to watch as the painting takes shape before their eyes, and they'll be able to see the special moments of your wedding captured in real time on canvas.
