“Working with Jeremy was an absolute pleasure. His work is outstanding and his service and attention to detail was absolutely AMAZING. Hanson and Annette were blown away by the artwork that Jeremy framed and delivered to them. They said that they had never seen anything like it. We feel that working with Jeremy and gifting this to our great friend and mentor in the photography industry was the BEST gift we could ever give. If you want some thing over the top custom and fabulous Jeremy Sutton and his fabulous smile and master craftsmanship are definitely the way to go.”

“Wow! That is very cool! That is different and unique. As a professional photographer I have seen a lot of things and I have never seen anything like that. I love the dance and the shuāngxǐ – Double Happiness. That’s absolutely gorgeous.”
I recently had the pleasure and honor of being commissioned by Mary and Jamie to create a very special wedding present, a Wedding Day Collage Painting, for their good friends, world-renowned wedding photographer and international instructor Hanson and Annette. The painting encompasses and captures the significant moments and symbols of their wedding day, including the beautiful and touching tea ceremony with their mothers, their wedding cake and flowers that Annette designed, the bamboo that Hanson arranged, the table settings of their family table no. 2, their first dance, and the Double Happiness Chinese character. It was a great joy to see the expression of surprise and pleasure on their faces when they first saw the painting! They loved it!
I shall be using this artwork as one of the examples in my new Painter Collage Techniques DVD.
