"My husband and I wanted to do something more creative for our wedding than a traditional photo booth and boy are we happy we found Canalside Caricatures. They were an absolute pleasure to work with. Bill was extremely responsive and helpful in deciding timing and number of artist (we had 300+ guests). They are extremely talented and all of our guests were SO happy and excited about their drawings. I would 100% recommend this company to add a creative touch to any special event."
"We hired Bill and another artist to draw at our wedding. Our guests absolutely loved it and mostly everybody participated. Throughout the planning process, Bill was prompt in responding to my dozens of questions. On the day of, he showed up on time, was professional, and friendly.
I would not hesitate to use this company again."
"Your drawings were the hit of the day!! Thank you so much for getting them to me. I appreciate your help in making our Christmas extra special. Everyone has complimented on the likeness of me and Apple and were surprised you could pick that up from a picture. Thank you SO much!!!"
"Hello again Bill! Thank you thank you thank you!!!
The caricatures were such a hit at our wedding that our guests are still talking about them! I had no idea that everyone would be so excited to get their caricature drawn! Definitely should have hired you for an extra hour but who could have known..."
"Mr. G, our visit to darien lake on sunday the 3rd was the first little vacation we’ve been able to take in the last 1 1/2 years, and though the rides were thrilling, and the food and drinks overpriced but good, your caricature of me and the mrs was by far the best thing we did all day. not only do we have a really good souvenir, as well as a good conversation piece, but we have something that we really consider to treasure as a symbol of our mild freedom from the mundane work week and such. i just have to say that you pretty put the cherry on the top of our vacation, and for whats its worth, I’d have paid double to get the kind of happiness that you brought to us. thank you very much.P.S, my wife cannot stop laughing at my portrait, so i hung it in the living room to make sure she would see it everyday."
