Silhouette Artist for your Wedding

We get more and more requests from Brides who want to have a Silhouette Artist at their wedding. Martha Stewart Wedding thought it was a great idea as well. The magazine hired Karl to come do Silhouettes at a wedding that was then featured in the magazine. Here are some pictures from that.

Karl also creates silhouettes for brides and grooms to use on their wedding invitations or larger ones to display at their weddings. Check out Cut Arts for more details.

Silhouette Family in Martha Stewart Living

Winemaker Marco Pasanella, Rebecca Robertson and their son Luca are the cutest family ever -- and check out their awesome artsy idea!

They created a silhouette family portrait, which shows how Rebecca plus Marco adds up to their little son Luca.

So cute, don't you think? Thanks for sending us this great photo, Marco! ("It wasn't easy to keep a three-year-old still," he laughs.)

If you want to copy their genius artwork, it's pretty simple: Just take a photo of yourself in profile and cut it out carefully. Then trace around it onto a piece of black construction paper. Voila! You have a silhouette portrait in a few easy steps.

(See the family's ridiculously charming Manhattan loft in Martha Stewart Living.)

Are you in love with silhouette portraits, too? Would you make one of yourself? Who else would you include? It would be so cute to hang one over your bed. And don't you want to go over and drink wine with the Pasanella family? They seem so sweet!

For those of you that would like your family silhouettes to be professionally created by a silhouette artist in the traditional way, Karl would be happy to hand cut them from your profile photos and create this wonderful family keepsake for you. I love the idea so much that I told Karl this morning that I want him to do one of the two of us with our son!

Silhouettes on Wedding Invitations from Paperwhite Press

With the state fair just around the corner, I thought I would post about Kyra and Robert's awesome silhouette invitation for their upcoming wedding. At last year's NC state fair, renowned silhouette artist, Karl Johnson - was cutting silhouettes. We were able to scan and digitally trace their silhouette cut outs and put them on their wedding invitation and seating cards. The results were awesome, classic black and white paired with a tiffany blue envelope. Karl is quite amazing and has been featured in Martha Stewart Weddings among others. We cannot wait to do another silhouette invitation again!
