now imagine if

You know there will be delicious food, but it will be eaten. Those incredible flowers, though spectacular, will eventually wither. You're confident the DJ has your playlist set, but will Grandma and Grandpa be up for dancing the entire time? Trust me, I remember when my head was spinning thinking of all of this too.

Kelley & Tim

Surprise Live Wedding Painting at Keswick Vineyards

Legacy and heart is at the core of everything I do here at By Brittany Branson. My couples and clients become extended family, and I take great pride in creating heirlooms that will forever beautify their homes and lives! My passion for live wedding painting runs deep, as I had a live painter at my own wedding. Our painting is one of our most precious heirlooms, and it's a crazy blessing that I now get to provide my own couples and clients all over the country with their very own keepsakes. When not at my easel, I'm rocking life with my pilot hubby Tim and fur baby Bolt. I hope you can now see why traveling is a core component of my By Brittany Branson brand, as is giving back. A portion of the proceeds from every live wedding painting experience is donated to local animal rescue efforts!

Questions

you may still have some

can i choose exactly what I would love painted?

When Should We Book You?

What do you need from us in order to book you?

What do you need from our venue in order to work?

I see you're based in DC. Are you able to travel?

The moment we want painted is super short. Can you still paint it?

When will I receive my completed painting?

My wedding has already passed! Can I send you a photograph to paint?

ASAP! This isn't an annoying sales pitch, simply honesty. I often book six months to a year and a half in advance, and often receive multiple inquiries for the same date. I unfortunately cannot hold dates without a signed contract and retainer!

A signed contract and 33% retainer will secure your big day in my calendar, along with all of your supplies. The remaining balance is then divided into two equal installments to help create an accessible payment plan.

I carry $1,000,000 in liability insurance. On the big day, all I need is a designated 6x6' space in order to do my thing! Otherwise, I bring all necessary materials. I will also require a vendor meal at some point during the evening.

Absolutely! A great first step is choosing a ceremony or reception moment. I'll then ask for more detailed information regarding any specific details I should capture as we approach the big day. Don't forget, I can add in pets or family who have passed on!

Absolutely! In 2019 alone I painted weddings in 10 different states. Simply inquire with me for more detailed travel information and quotes! With a pilot hubby, I do my best to keep my travel rates as low as possible for my couples and clients. On average, weddings more than three hours from my home in Washington, DC will incur a $500 flat travel fee to help cover a flight/mileage and hotel room.

Definitely. I have a special arm on my easel that holds my phone and tablet. It's no problem at all to work off of sneaky reference photographs taken during your brief moment for the remainder of the evening.

Great question! It's super dependent on your wedding date and the package experience you choose. If the painting needs additional touch ups in studio, on average couples can expect their painting back in 4-8 weeks. However, during peak seasons it may take longer.

Absolutely! One of my specialties is creating gorgeous, cohesive paintings based on numerous inspirational photographs. Simply reach out for more information about custom commission options!

how my business gives back

A common theme you'll notice throughout my art and clients is a love for dogs and animals. To help other fur babies find their future families, a portion of every live painting service or custom work of art is donated to local rescue groups, including Lucky Dog Animal Rescue, the organization that brought me my fur baby Bolt!

It's my hope that, when you invest in one of my paintings or services, you'll not only be blessed by it, but feel good about your purchase! Heres to saving more lives...together!
