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.


Grab the guide:

Pearce + McLain
The Bleckley Inn
Anderson, South Carolina

Styled painting … yes, please!  Sometimes the best paintingas come when you think outside the box!  Pearce and McLain were torn about the moment they wanted Ben to capture for their live painting because the traditional moments didn’t include their favorite portion of the property: this charming alley way at The Bleckley Inn.  So, we had the idea to tag along during their first look which took place there in that sweet alley with Edison bulbs overhead and darling cafe tables.  Not only was this such an incredible moment for them on their wedding day, it also created a really beautiful backdrop for their live painting!  The composition worked perfectly to highlight Pearce and McLain in the foreground.  Needless to say, we had so much fun getting to know this family and being part of their gorgeous wedding day!  Cheers to their First Look Painting!
