Singapore Tatler Wedding - - TRENDS - tal­i­ako­

While photo-tak­ing has be­come sec­ond na­ture with smart­phones, live wed­ding painters of­fer a re­fresh­ingly slow-paced ex­pe­ri­ence on a sup­pos­edly hec­tic day. Both new­ly­weds and guests can live in the mo­ment in­stead of con­stantly hav­ing to pose for the cam­era with stiffly-held smiles, says Ta­hoe-based artist Talia Ko­val—who also trav­els around the world to paint for wed­dings. While these paint­ings may not re­place the in­stant grat­i­fi­ca­tion of snap­ping photos, Ko­val be­lieves they cap­ture the en­tirety of the wed­ding in a sin­gle frame and can live to tell the story of the special day for a long time to come. They are also an in­ter­est­ing sight for the wed­ding guests and make a unique me­mento for the cou­ple’s new home.
