Create Cherished memories with
Live Wedding Illustration

Imagine the spirit of your wedding day transformed into a collection of beautiful ink and watercolor images that are yours to keep for happily ever after. Every illustration is made in the moment and of the moment.


From your walk down the aisle and vows, to that first dance, the joy of your guests, and the details of your cake … I’ll document your day with an artistic eye and an attention to the moments big and small that make it all memorable. 


“Both my husband and I teared up when we went through our drawings for the first time. How many people have original pieces of art from their wedding day?”

We’ll pick the perfect package — or create a custom one just for you — and make sure that your day is turned into works of art worthy of your love.

“Seeing photographs is one thing, but an artist like Sarah captures through her drawings those feelings and magic that can’t be seen.”
