Meet Nika Smernoff the calligrapher and owner behind Calligraphette & Co. Calligraphette and Co is based in the greater Washington DC and northern Virginia area. As a calligrapher, she’s specializes in replicating antique handwriting in addition to pursuing classic calligraphic techniques. Several months ago, Nika and I collaborated on a project inspired by Love Letters. She designed and wrote a set of letters between two lovers using her antique handwriting skills. She used paper she had picked up while traveling to Paris, paper from Saint Signora, as well as hand-dyed silk ribbon. The Love Letters project was recently published on Artfully Wed.
She works from her home office in Arlington, VA with her kitty-coworker, Alexis the cat. Nika is also a passionate international travel, collects books, and loves a good cup of coffee.
I originally fell in love with Nika’s creative and unique approach to calligraphy through Instagram.

Nika is available both in the Washington DC area and abroad for Wedding Calligraphy, Invitation Design, Custom Calligraphy Pieces, and Envelope Addressing.
Hi I’m Erin and the artist behind Erin Tetterton Photography. Welcome to the photographic THE ARCHIVES.
I believe our lives are divine orchestrations. We each have a story and I believe they are stories that deserve to be told and told well. From Weddings, to Babies, and to celebrate the years we are just glad to have behind us. The photos I take are the images that tell the story. Your own history. Your family’s history. ….and the history of those generations that are to come.
My goal is to create authentic, timeless imagery that accurately depicts each phase of your life. Those phases will be different, unique, and beautiful. Inject humor! Do them in a place you love!
