Erin specializes in Copperplate and pointed pen calligraphy, a style dating back to the early 17th century. Writing was engraved that many years ago with copper plates, hence where the term Copperplate derives. Copperplate used to be referred to as Roundhand- you will often see the terms used interchangeably. The script shown here is a stylistic variation of Copperplate.

The name Peony & Plume was inspired by one of Erin’s favorite flowers, the peony and the old fashioned quill pens.

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!
