Why the Most Popular Choice for a Live Wedding Painting in Hawaii is a Couple-Centered Composition.

Updated: Mar 28, 2023

Aloha! As a portrait artist with over two decades of experience, I've had the privilege of capturing some of the most special moments in people's lives. Weddings are one such occasion that holds a special place in my heart. As a wedding artist based in Hawaii, I have seen firsthand how couples want to capture their special day in a way that is personal and unique to them. One of the most popular ways to do this is through live wedding paintings.

I've had the pleasure of painting some of the most beautiful weddings in the world. And let me tell you, there's something truly special about capturing the magic of a Hawaiian wedding on canvas. But what makes the perfect live wedding painting? It can be relative, depending on each couple, but after years of experience, I can tell you that when it comes to personalization, a couple-centered composition is by far the most popular choice for your live wedding painting in Hawaii. In this article, I'll explain why.

Personalization and Customization

I have different packages where you can choose the canvas size, the time at the event, and the studio hours to retouch the painting. With more canvas size and hours invested, you can add more details and elements to the painting. As an artist, I offer a free phone consultation to discuss my client's vision and bring it to life in the best way possible.

Choosing the Perfect Moment

The best thing about having a phone consultation is that it allows you to choose the perfect moment to be captured. It could be the first look, the exchange of vows, the first kiss, or the first dance. Whatever moment you choose, it will be a personalized and intimate representation of your special day.

Couple-centered composition or a painting with a crowd.

One of the first things I discuss with the couple is if they want a couple-centered composition or a painting with a crowd. Couple-centered paintings are focused on the groom and bride, while paintings with a crowd have more people in them. The more couple-centered the paintings the more detailed, and realistic, and capture better the couple's essence, while paintings with more people are more abstract and focused on the event.

A couple-centered composition also allows for other personalization and customization options. For example, I can incorporate small elements that are important to the couple, such as their favorite Hawaiian flowers, wedding colors, or even their pets. This makes each painting truly unique and special, reflecting the couple's individual tastes and personalities.

If you're looking for a personalized and intimate representation of your special day, a couple-centered composition on your live wedding painting is an excellent choice. It's a timeless and elegant way to capture the most intimate moments of your wedding day.

It's All About the Couple

When you look back on your wedding day, what's the most important thing you remember? For most couples, it's the love and connection they share with each other. That's why a couple-centered composition is a perfect way to capture the essence of your wedding day. By focusing on the couple, I can capture the unique energy and emotion of your special day.

The Beauty of Simplicity

One of the biggest advantages of a couple-centered composition is its simplicity. By eliminating distractions and focusing solely on the couple, I can create a painting that is clean, elegant, and timeless. Plus, this composition style allows me to create a more detailed and nuanced portrait of the couple, capturing the nuances of their body language and facial expressions.

Capturing the Beauty of Hawaii

While a couple-centered composition may seem simple, it also allows for the inclusion of the location, like a church or chapel, or the stunning Hawaiian landscapes in the background. By framing the couple with the natural beauty of Hawaii, I can create a painting that truly captures the essence of your wedding day in paradise. Whether it's the palm trees swaying in the breeze, the crystal clear waters of the ocean, or the majestic mountains in the distance, a couple-centered composition allows for the inclusion of Hawaii's natural beauty without distracting from the couple.

Timeless and Classic

couple-centered live wedding paintings are timeless and classic. They provide an elegant touch to the wedding day and can be displayed in the couple's home for years to come. I often receive feedback from couples who say that their painting is a conversation starter in their home and that it reminds them of their special day every time they see it. It's a beautiful reminder of their love and commitment to each other.

Attention to Detail

With a couple-centered live wedding painting, I can focus on the details that matter most. I can capture the intricacies of the wedding dress, the groom's suit, and the couple's facial expressions. A couple-only painting allows me to spend more time on these details and create a painting that truly reflects the couple's style and personality.


In conclusion, a couple-centered composition is the most popular choice for your live wedding painting in Hawaii for a variety of reasons. They capture the most intimate moments of the wedding day, are timeless and classic, and allow for personalization and attention to detail. By focusing solely on the couple, I can capture the unique energy and emotion of your special day while also showcasing the stunning natural beauty of Hawaii. And with customization options available, each painting is truly one-of-a-kind.
