Gasps & Clutched
Hearts Guaranteed 

The toasts are given, the cake is cut, and the band begins to play. Sure, it's a lovely reception, that's just like every other one you've been to.

Instead, give them something unexpected. From the flower girl to your grandparent, live painting is something everyone can enjoy. ​​​​​​

And unlike entertainment that ends when your celebration does, your live painting is a tangible keepsake that provides a lifetime of joy.

An Elevated Experience

The Live Wedding Painting Experience


Picture Perfect

Relax knowing I'll only enhance the ambiance of your reception. My setup is very clean and professional. All I need is a 6'x6' space to create your special piece within!

Art Created Anywhere

Rest assured I'll be on board for travel. With a pilot hubby I do my best to keep travel rates as low as possible for my couples too! Inquire with me for more detailed travel quotes.

Curated Moments

Merging moments together is one of my specialties. If you have multiple moments you want captured or incorporated, I'll create a gorgeous, cohesive painting based on numerous inspirational photographs.

Legacy Commissions

Have all your special moments painted. I love continuing our relationships past your wedding day. I'll paint custom commissioned artwork for your legacy from your family crest to the welcoming a beautiful little one into the world. Inquire with me for more information.

"It was such a fun experience for guests while also giving the couple a lifetime keepsake."

Painting For Paws

My little family is the most important thing to me. And one third of this little family is our rescue pooch, Bolt! We can't imagine life without him.

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 us Bolt! 

If you're wondering if you can (or should) include your pup in your live wedding painting, the answer is always YES!

How Our Process Works


Select the moment or experience you want captured forever. When the day comes I'll be ready and waiting to snap a picture, so I can begin painting the core of it at your reception.


Relax & enjoy every moment of your wedding day. I'll take care of the logistics from setting up to bringing all the materials needed to create your masterpiece.


Relish in the excitement with your guests. Guests love to watch and learn as I paint. I'll come ready to entertain, interact with a genuine smile, and make sure they enjoy the experience.



Fall in love with your painting and reminisce about your day. I'll put the finishing touches on at my studio. Within 4-8 weeks you'll receive your heirloom painting to treasure forever.

From the moment I spoke with her on the phone, I knew I needed her on my special day.



As a destination live wedding artist and wife of an airline pilot, travel is a particular specialty. No destination is too far. In fact, I’m on a personal mission to live paint a wedding in every US state and territory. Feel free to ask me about it!

Do you travel?



A unique aspect of the By Brittany Branson experience is the trust developed between myself and my couples. This trust extends to the creativity of the painting composition! Of course, I can arrive at the wedding and paint exactly what I see as I see it. However, many of my couples commission me for my creativity and cohesiveness. This is where I thrive! For example, should you love your ceremony location and decor, but adore the idea of painting you in a first dance pose, I can combine your most treasured elements into one heirloom scene.

What Is Your Favorite Kind of Live Painting To Create?



No matter the final desired complexity of your live wedding painting composition, I strive to complete the background, scene, and couple by the end of the evening. Should you love additional individuals added to the painting, I will take the piece home to my studio to dedicate additional hours of touch-ups.

Will The Painting Be Completed By the End of Our Wedding?



Yes! Adding in the portraits of beloved pets is always complimentary. I donate a portion of the proceeds from every live wedding painting to the local animal rescue from which my husband and I adopted our two dogs, Bolt and Ginger!

We Love Our Pets, But They Can’t Attend the Wedding. Can They Be Added Into the Painting?



Yes! About half of my weddings each year are gifts or surprises.

I Am Not The Engaged Couple - Can I Gift Your Services To Them?



The vast majority of my couples book 7 - 10 months out from their weddings with many prime Saturday dates being booked 12 months out.

When Should We Book Our Live Wedding Painting Experience?

Your Ideal Live Wedding Painting

"Sense of Place"

There's a sacredness surrounding the place you choose to share your vows.

This live wedding painting experience celebrates that specialness by highlighting your venue or wedding day location. A portrait likeness of the happy couple is a supporting actor (or completely absent) in this landscape and architecture painting composition.

"The Classic Composition"

The traditional live wedding painting experience.

This composition features your favorite wedding day moment beginning with an intimate portrait of just the two of you. Popular ceremony moments include first kisses and walking up the aisle poses, while popular reception moments include first dances. Do you have a more unique idea or vision? We can create meaningful masterpiece.

"Cherished Collage"

Brittany's most unique and creative offering, this live wedding painting celebrates your favorite wedding day elements in one cohesive composition.

Together, we'll review your wedding day design and vision to ensure I choose those details that are most important to you (including your venue, cake, patterns, pets, transportation, decor, etc). Each element is lovingly flanked by your wedding florals and surrounds a portrait of the two of you during your chosen moment.

Hours of additional studio time is guaranteed to make the painting picture perfect. Due to the complex nature of the composition, my two largest heirloom canvas sizes are available to ensure there's room for each detail.

Live Guest Illustrations

The favor your guests will never toss.

Delight your favorite people with an heirloom fashion illustration to treasure forever.

"I met Brittany at a friend's wedding and instantly wanted to book her....she travels! 

she came to our wedding in Ohio and was a highlight of the evening for many guests."

Watercolor Wedding Crests

The perfect, custom addition to any wedding stationery or day-of details, Brittany uses the elements of your couples's love story, venue, and design as inspiration for a one-of-a-kind, heraldic-like wedding crest.

Live Guest Illustration Favors
