Hi, I'm Ben!


How to choose the moment for your live wedding painting?

Stuck on the moment?  This guide includes 10 questions we ask our couples to help them decide on the details for their Live Wedding Painting.

Ariel + Ryan
Westchester Country Club
Rye, New York
24 x 36 in. Canvas

We L O V E surprises … and Ryan sure did coordinate an incredible surprise for his bride, Ariel, during their first dance!  Ryan actually had Thomas Rhett pre-record an accoustic version of “Die A Happy Man” that was played on a screen as they danced for the first time as husband and wife.  Does it get any more romantic than this!?!  This huge surprise made capturing their first dance even more special for their live painting.  The icing on the cake is that Ariel and her mother are also event planners … so you can imagine their wedding day was just incredible!  Westchester Country Club was a spectacular backdrop for their reception and Ben was so honored to capture all the pretty of their day!
