As a lot of you know, JnK Imagery is not just known for its beautiful photography, but also for the original illustrations we create for our couples. Seth and Lexie are dear friends of ours, so this illustration for their wedding, taking place this past November 10th in Philadelphia, had to reflect their personalities while showing a fun action packed composition. Seth is a professor and Lexie is a lawyer and they have lived all over the country. I thought Indiana Jones would be a perfect movie to showcase their sense of adventure, and I chose the locales based on places they have lived and visited.
I tackle each painting differently, so in this case I wanted it to feel like an actual Indiana Jones movie poster. I did research on the movies and figured out a composition I liked. After that it was figuring out which scenes to create and where. Washington D.C. and Japan were perfect for their iconography and stark differences from each other. I decided on the time of day and color schemes before I started painting, and researched the Lincoln Memorial as well as the 30’s style cars. This is a lot of fun for me, so I try to encourage a couple to push the limits of imagination in the initial[ consultation.
It’s a labor intensive but amazing process for me while I make it lots of fun for the couple and at the end they have a unique piece of art that they can hang on their wall. If you are looking to give a unique gift for a loved ones wedding, birthday, anniversary or you would like a personalized illustration for yourself, please let me know.
