A Romantic Portrait Wedding Gift

Wedding Portrait Gift by Shobey1kanoby Before and After via ArtCorgi

Many of the romantic commission orders we receive are for wedding gifts, which we love! A one-of-a-kind portrait is certainly more memorable to a new couple than a set of towels, right?

Chloe commissioned this piece for Ben from Shobey1kanoby, and we love how the realistic painted portrait came out. To commission a portrait of your own in this style, stop by Shobey1kanoby’s commission page.

Backstory Behind the Piece – Q&A with Chloe

ArtCorgi (AC): What inspired you to commission this piece?

Chloe (C): My boss Ben Parr wanted a unique wedding gift to give to his close friends.

AC: We’ve found that choosing a reference photo for a portrait can be the hardest part. How did you find the right collection of shots to send to your artist?

C: Ben provided me with the photos- I believe they were engagement photos!

AC: What advice would you give to someone who is interested in commissioning art, but has never done so before?

C: Be specific with what you want, and take time to pick the artist you want :)
