How do you make the portraits look like us on our wedding day, if it has not happened yet?

Magic. Kidding! (Kind of.) We base our custom illustrations on photos you provide us—this can include people, pets, places, name it. As soon as you place your order, we will send you an online request form where you can provide us all the photos we need for your design. Photos should be clear and high-resolution - check out our Photo Guide for helpful tips on what types of photos to send!

You can send us multiple photos and we will put it all together into one illustration. For example, send us a picture of you and your partner wearing everyday clothes, and another picture of your wedding outfi, and we’ll combine them beautifully.

Can you explain the process a bit more?

Get ready for the ultimate white glove service the moment you decide to work with us. The first step after you purchase is to schedule a 15 minute call with your designer, so we can make sure we get all the details juuuust right. But don't worry, if you prefer email we can do that too! You can ask questions, go over important aspects of your design, or just gush about all the dreamy details of your wedding day. Once your designer has all the important details, they will get to work on creating your custom design. Next, you will receive your first proof via email. You will be able to send comments and edits back to your designer, and will enter into the "revision" stage. You will have three rounds of revisions to make your design perfect. Once you send your designer final approval, they will send your piece off for print production (or send you the final file if you purchase a digital print). We will keep you in the loop about when your print gets shipped out, and when it is expected to arrive. Feel free to reach out even after you receive your print if you have any questions (you probably won't since we pack our boxes with lots of helpful info and extra goodies to make sure you are all set.

Beautiful work of art

This guestbook turned out to be amazing. I love how the artist captured my husband. It looked like him right away. The artist was great to work with and was patient too when it came to capturing my look as well as the minor details of our 4 cats. I also love how my wedding flowers were incorporated in the arch. I specifically bought this guestbook because I wanted something I can have in my home to look at and be reminded of the love and happiness I felt on my wedding day. This guestbook and the artist went beyond my expectations.


I absolutely love the canvas miss design berry made for us for our wedding !!! It is everything I could ask for and more!! I cannot wait to set this up for our guests to sign at our wedding :)

Beautiful surprise!

The bride and groom absolutely loved their canvas! I surprised my daughter with it at her wedding, and she nearly cried when she saw their two dogs included. It's amazing how spot on the artist was with the dogs. They have two golden retrievers that look very similar, but their coloring and faces are different from each other, and the artist captured them perfectly! I used all three (free) revisions, and the artist was very accomodating and easy to work with. As you might guess, the painting of the bride and groom were not identical to their actual pictures, but they were as close to possible without adding too many extra details. Having the dress and suit customized was spot on. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about the canvas. It was expensive, but that is to be expected with custom work. I also chose to have it framed, and the wood frame looks great.

So easy & fun

This was so much fun to work on! The designer completely NAILED IT on the drawing of my husband. It's totally him as a cartoon character. :) This is such a unique way to commemorate our special day, and it'll be seen so much more than a guest book!

A keepsake

I found this on Pinterest and decided to purchase it as a surprise for my daughter on her wedding day. She and the groom absolutely loved it. They matched her dress perfectly! My only regret is that we forget to get a picture of the bride and grrom in their wedding attire with the canvas.
