I started an etsy shop to get my sketches "out there" and soon after I was featured in a bunch of great blogs such as Weddingbee, Wedding Paper Divas, and Pretty Little Things as well as in bridal magazines like New Jersey Bride and New Jersey Life Weddings. (Although I'm a born and raised New Yorker, I swear!) In the past 2 years I've worked on illustrations for wedding planners, editors, decorators, bloggers, greeting cards companies, websites and large corporations. It's been fabulous, but I have to say I really do have a sweet spot for brides! So here are some of my favorite brides from my illustration portfolio.
I've been away for a few weeks and the majority of emails I received while away, as far as job inquiries go, were bridal. I love drawing brides and I love capturing a woman in one of the most important moments of her life, wearing her dream dress. I also love seeing people's wedding photo's! I'm such a girl, what can I say. I love seeing the shoes she chose, the flowers, the bridesmaids dresses, the color scheme for the wedding, ect... I can go on and on about this one!My whole illustration business started out because of the bridal illustrations I did for friends. I'm at the stage in life where many of my friends are getting married. I made personalized fashion illustrations for my close friends on their special day. They hung them in their homes, friends and neighbors saw them and would ask for my contact info. Before I knew it I had orders rolling in.
