Laura @ Laura Hooper Calligraphy's Picture
Laura Hooper, Northridge, CA Vendor: Calligraphy Website: Laura Hooper Calligraphy About Me: I've been practicing the art of calligraphy since the age of 12 and nothing gives me more pleasure than waking up each morning knowing I get to do what I do each day. I love having the ability to infuse my own personal style into each of my bride's special day. When I'm not working, I enjoy traveling, hiking, reading and painting; but most of the time I don't consider calligraphy to be work at all!
About Laura @ Laura Hooper Calligraphy

Greetings

January 22nd, 2009 @ 7:09 pm by laurahooper

I just returned home from several days out of the country to learn that I was chosen to be a Weddingbee Pro Blogger.  I could not feel more honored to be a part of such a talented group of wedding professionals.  I’m a full time calligrapher and I couldn’t love my “job” more.  I’ve been studying calligraphy since the age of twelve and after getting a degree in Business, I decided that a 9 to 5 position in a cubicle just wasn’t for me.

I’ve been artistic since I learned to hold a crayon, and I’ve always loved to paint and draw, so turning calligraphy into a full-fledged career was the perfect solution.  Now I spend my days lettering wedding invitations and sketching maps, and I find it to be fun, relaxing, and challenging all at once.  When I’m not working on weddings, I enjoy accumulating stamps in my passport, hiking in the beautiful Southern California sun, and playing with my dogs, among many other things. I hope very much that I can provide some insight into the artform of calligraphy, and its many uses for weddings and life in general.

Thank you so much for reading and I look forward to blogging!

Warmly,
Laura Hooper

You wrote out the quote that I used for my wedding. I’m trying to find a way to use it in my home and throughout my life now. I hope you will post about th seating chart and the map you created for Ami Price. Actually I hope you will post about all the things you have created for her because I love it all!

Laura, I knew you would be a perfect fit for WeddingbeePRO! You are a huge inspiration to me, and gave me some great advice when I wrote to you a while back. I totally cop to being super envious of you- could you tell us your story of how you made a name for yourself?
