Cathedral of St. John the Baptist - Charleston, South Carolina
In order to capture the details of your venue, it is important that I have a high resolution photo of the venue. It must also be a photo that you have permission to use or one that you have taken.
You will receive design-ready, high-resolution digital files (pdf, tif & jpg) of your wedding venue watercolor illustration delivered to you and/or your designer via Dropbox, plus the original artwork will be shipped to you via insured USPS.
My normal turn around time for completion of the illustration averages about two weeks, but this can vary more or less, depending upon my schedule at the time of inquiry.
In addition to being an illustrator, I am also a graphic designer...so I can certainly provide design services for Save the Dates and Invitations. However, please note that I do not provide printing services.
This is a custom illustration created just for you. I do not sell the digital image of the watercolor illustration to any other bride or groom who might have the same venue. In addition, all images of the illustration that appear on my website gallery are lo-resolution to prevent "lifting" by another bride or groom for their use.
The fee for a custom watercolor illustration is $165. This includes the original artwork (approximately 10x14, suitable for framing and shipped to you via insured USPS), as well as design-ready, high-resolution digital files (pdf, tif & jpg) delivered to you and/or your designer via Dropbox.

In a nutshell, I'm a freelance graphic designer and illustrator with a BFA in Communication Design from Kutztown University, Kutztown, PA. So, how did I get here (illustrating wedding venues, that is)? It all started when a college friend and fellow designer (Erin of GraceandArdor.com) asked me to render a watercolor illustration of her wedding venue. Erin took that illustration and created a beautiful Save the Date, which was then featured on a popular wedding blog, ohsobeautifulpaper.com. Suddenly, I was getting inquiries from brides (and grooms) all over the country (yay for free advertising!). It’s not exactly the niche market I had envisioned for myself, but it found me, and I love it!
