For the Bride

Every bride wants and should be immortalized; to have a one-of-a-kind remembrance of her wedding day.

My name is Franklyn Margasak. I am a renowned portrait artist and fashion illustrator who will draw you as if you were sitting in my studio, one-on-one. There’s no rendering (tracing) of photos as other popular websites advertise. I am an artist who will draw  a dynamic and beautiful interpretation of you!

I have drawn fashion portraits and illustrations for manufacturers and department stores like Polo, Armani, Prada, Bloomingdales Jordon Marsh, and Marshall Fields, to name a few. And I will make the vision of you as stunning and beautiful as any haute couture, Vogue fashion illustration. Look at the portraits on this website. Read my testimonials.

I will draw your portrait from the information provided as if you were here, and send it to you for your approval. It’s then to my easel, where I will begin drawing the original fashion illustration of you, done in rich charcoal.
A one-of-a-kind WORK of ART!

“Franklyn made us look exactly like ourselves, only more glamorous. I’ve never liked having photos displayed in our living room, but the wedding portrait is perfect. Every time I look at it, I feel happy.”
~ Sara O.

“We didn’t want anything gimmicky for our wedding invitations, and when we found The Wedding Artist, we knew we were going to get something first class.  DYI is the thing right now, but we wanted experts to handle our invitations. Everyone loved them.” ~ Elizabeth and Jason T.
