Photo Commissions

Emily + Ryne celebrated their destination wedding at the Biltmore Estate in Asheville … which was an absolute fairy tale! Ben was already booked when Emily discovered his live paintings and opted to commission a painting from their photos following their celebration. Here is one of two originals she commissioned for the big day … and might I (Jen) add, it’s a huge painting … a 36 x 54 in. canvas to be exact, making this Ben’s largest wedding painting to date! Oh, and you may have seen all the beauty gracing the pages of Inside Weddings, both print + blog! What a joy to collaborate with the fabulous Lindsey Nowak of Kristen Newman Designs!  Needless to say, Ben is so proud to share both of these finished paintings and prints on canvas!
