True Oil on Canvas Paintings
Marrying the technology of today with the beauty & artistry of the past.
Brad offers his wedding clients something truly unique - oil on canvas paintings by the couple's wedding photographer.
From the beginning to the end of the creative process, the artist is there creating one-of-a-kind works of art that quickly become the topic of conversation in any room, and family heirlooms afterward.
Availability is limited.

Brad's paintings are about humanity - brides and grooms dressed to the nines on one of the most important days of their lives, fighter pilots in combat, ballerinas who float, athletes, musicians...other artists. Anybody able to show the rest of us that our limits are far past where we believe they are, or whoever inspires and encourages each of us to be better, to be stronger, to grow a little each day toward our full potential, and to be kind to ourselves as we fail - that is the subject of Brad's artwork.


85 - Andrea and Keith.jpg
Andrea & Keith
30x40 Oil on Canvas
Andrea & Keith was painted from an image captured at Garden of the Gods in Colorado.
To intentionally create tension between the couple, the artist secretly instructed the groom to remain standing with his hands in his pockets even after the shoot began. The bride eventually took matters into her own hands, throwing her free arm around his neck & kissing him, creating a unique portrait.
The painting shows the artist's range, as it offers both portrait & landscape work.
