Live Painting

Mississippi  Weddings  + Beyond


Any venue outside of the Brandon, MS area will require travel fees. Travel fees will be calculated and added to your total cost. Airfare will be added if needed.

All costs include a gallery-wrapped canvas, all materials and supplies, the artist’s time and presence at the venue. A 30% deposit is required to reserve the wedding date and painting must be paid in full one month prior to the event. Live event paintings start at $2,500.

Prior to your wedding day, I will give you an opportunity to let me know any specific preferences you may have for your painting – you choose what you'd like to have painted: ceremony, first look, or reception.
On your wedding day, I will arrive about 2-3 hours prior to event to set up and begin the painting process before guests arrive. The entire process takes approximately 4-6 hours. You will receive one large painting incorporating a reflection of the entire wedding scene. My paintings are loose and expressive—without catering to many facial details—but still capture your special day.

In the case that I feel the painting is not complete at the end of an event, I will finish the painting at my studio. In this case, photographs will be taken as reference and the painting can be picked up or shipped upon completion.  

Book with Miriam

Live painting not only produces a keepsake for the couple to display in their new home, but is also entertainment for the wedding guests.

Your wedding day only happens once. Capture a special moment in time as one-of-a-kind art to hang in your home forever. 

Live Wedding Paintings by Miriam

— Lexie, bride

Miriam was by far one of my favorite wedding vendors! She turned a once-in-a-lifetime memory into permanent masterpiece. We had her paint at our wedding, and she provided entertainment and a precious keepsake all wrapped into one. 

— Iris, mother of bride

Having Miriam do a live painting was the easiest part of wedding planning and execution. She delivers on all levels with no stress or effort from you.

— Maggie, bride

I love how Miriam captured a moment of our wedding that we will be able to keep forever! Miriam was attentive and responded quickly to every question I had. She works with what you would want in the painting and does amazing work!
