I'm SO PUMPED to live paint A + R's gorgeous wedding tomorrow at the picturesque @linganorewinecellars ! The couple have specifically requested I capture their joyful ceremony....so let's do this!! 💪🏻🎨 . Will you be tuning in for all of the behind the scenes goodness? I'll especially be hanging out over on my stories...so let me know below if I'll see ya there! 🙋🏻♀️ .

November 1st, my friends. November 1st. It's gonna be one big, exciting day 😍 . New visual brand by @ribbonandink launches...along with a face lifted @showit.co site!! . My new niche coaching for multi-passionate professionals launches...and my heart is so ready to share the knowledge and hard lessons I've learned building a super niche business (with a signature niche style) in an industry of wants, not needs. . And prices being raised. That's right my peeps...it's time to do more of what I can to support my little family ❤ . It's also the FINAL day to commission a custom painting in time for the holidays (without a rush fee). So if you're ready to grace your walls with some serious pretty...if you're ready to invest in a custom piece that tells YOUR story, it's time to chat ❤ Email me at ByBrittanyBranson@gmail.com cause I can't WAIT to paint your life or love story ❤🎨
I NEVER thought I would be painting for a living. Ok...I never thought I would PAINT! Let alone have someone offer me their hard earned cash for my painting. (Side note: guys and gals...I'm serious...every time a transaction occurs...whether it's for my top 💵 live wedding painting experience or a $20 ornament, I literally let out a YAY!) ❤🍾 . I HATED painting when I was younger. Colored pencil? Oh yea. Charcoal? Sure! Pastel? Yea, why not. But painting?...BLEH! I HATED myself if I couldn't get my paints to replicate what my eyes were seeing EXACTLY. Talk about a one way ticket on the Struggle Bus. 🚌 . But now? Well....I can't say I'm off the struggle bus completely...but there do seem to be a lot more rest stops than before. . I'm having fun as I throw my brushes down and finger paint the majority of my fluffy blooms. I'm really enjoying introducing non-watercolor painting to the wedding world! And check this out...I finally LOVE the fact that my paintings aren't EXACT replicas of reality!! Cause you know what? That's what a CAMERA'S for...and even then the person behind that camera is an artist themselves! . So let's talk about this! What's something about you that you weren't quite so into before...but can't imagine not rocking now? Comment below! (Image by @vanessasmithphoto )
So, so close to finishing this beauty!! The colors sure do give me all of the heart eyes 😍 . I sure hope y'all understand how much I love it when my couples trust me to create a painting they'll want to remember forever...including adding multiple moments in one! S & S requested a likeness of both their first dance and awesome saber cake cutting. I made sure to alter the heights and perspectives of the other guests to ensure both moments stood out ;) . I'm sad to see these gorgeous summer wedding moments go...but SO FLIPPIN' EXCITED for my fall couples ❤ I have a few select dates still available, so don't be afraid to reach out! It never hurts to ask, right? 😘 .

Cheering on my girl @sheriautrycouture !! This powerhouse of a couture designer super woman lady presented her newest collection of couture gowns AGAIN at New York Couture Fashion Week this past weekend!! And...omg...guys and gals...you NEED to check them out ❤ I give you complete permission to just ditch this post and GO STALK HER! ❤ . Forever grateful for the opportunity to team up with her to hand paint the skirt of this incredible high-low couture bridal creation...so beautifully modeled by the gorgeous @allison_rose_model (who is stunning inside and out, might I add)! . Allison was so gracious to be a part of our team that helped bring some awareness to invisible diseases and, in particular, Ehler's Danlos Syndrome, a rare connective tissue disorder that effects the skin, joints, and blood vessels. And she TOTALLY rocked the runway this past weekend with Sheri!! .

Sure, the final result is super pretty...but sometimes the process to get there is just as beautiful ❤ . Super excited to get a lot of personal commissions finished and out the door this week! But...while they dry...sometimes I've just gotta paint for myself ❤ . I don't have a chance to do them often, but I LOVE finger painting some floral goodness. There's a portion of wall in our new apartment that is just screaming for some fluffy flower power. I adore serving my couples and clients...but when your own walls need some love, you gotta answer the call, right?! . What's something you're excited about this week? I want to cheer you on!!
As we here in the states take a day to celebrate the working guy and gal, I wanted to take a moment to thank all of YOU for constantly supporting me in my own labor of love ❤ . From your likes to your kind comments... to your sharing my work with friends...to your custom commissions and investments in my art and services...I am so incredibly grateful for each and every one of you! .

It's a holiday weekend, people!! What do you mean you haven't started dancing yet?!? Psshhh....I may be judging... . It's pretty much officially fall....which means between now and December is a crazy busy fall wedding season!! SQQUUUEEE!!! I'm finishing up the last of my summer live wedding paintings, and then it's on to my fall couples and the launch of something super exciting in November!! . I have a few remaining dates available for #liveweddingpainting experiences! But only a few (cause..you know..with a pilot hubby who is only around for two weeks at a time...priorities). Send me a private message here, head to the live wedding painting link in my Instagram bio, or www.bybrittanybranson.com/live-wedding-painting to get the party started!! .
