Travel Fees for Live Wedding Paintings

Updated: Mar 28, 2023


Introduction:

As a live wedding painter with over two decades of experience, I have had the pleasure of capturing beautiful moments for clients all over Maui, Hawaii. I specialize in creating exquisite fine art portraits and live event paintings, particularly live wedding paintings. In recent years, my services have become increasingly popular, and I am frequently booked for events outside of Maui. In this article, I will outline my additional travel fees and provide useful information to help clients plan their events with ease. Visit my booking page to reserve your date and learn more about the pricing for this unforgettable experience.


What are the additional travel fees?

Clients who book my live wedding painting services for events outside of Maui will incur additional travel fees. These fees include round-trip air transportation, ground transportation, lodging, event parking, per diem, Maui Airport parking, and gas. A separate invoice with the detailed exact amount of the travel fees will be sent to clients.

Why do I charge travel fees?

As an artist, I take pride in delivering a personalized experience to each of my clients. To ensure that I can bring my best work to events outside of Maui, I need to invest time and resources into planning and preparing for each event. Travel fees help cover these additional costs and allow me to deliver the same level of service to clients outside of Maui as I do to my clients in Maui.


How are travel fees calculated?

Travel fees are relative to the specific location of the event, the date of the event, and the cost of booking plane tickets, lodging, and car rental at the moment I purchase reservations. To save the date, clients need to pay a minimum deposit of $1,000 on the package invoice. A separate invoice with the detailed exact amount of the travel fees will be sent to clients.

Clients have until the day of their wedding or event to complete the payment on the package invoice.


Tips for planning your event with ease

To help clients plan their events with ease, I recommend booking my services at least 6 months in advance to ensure availability and to allow ample time for planning and preparation. It's also helpful to provide as much information as possible about the event, including the location, date, and any special requests or details. Clients can contact me for a free phone consultation to discuss their vision and to receive helpful tips and advice for planning their events.
