Hey! I'm Sophia
I’m a Santa Barbara, CA based calligrapher and graphic designer (but you probably already figured that out). I started Sophia Loves Letters in 2016, and really enjoy getting to add beautiful, meaningful details to one of the biggest days of someone’s life. My first calligraphy class ever was in college (I was a graphic design major, and it was part of my typography course) and not only was I terrible, but being left handed made it almost impossible for me to do it correctly, so I left the class feeling so disappointed that I would never be able to do calligraphy! Happily though, a few years later I found pointed pen calligraphy, which is different from the italic calligraphy I learned in college, and completely lefty friendly. I did all of the calligraphy and design for my own wedding in 2014 (there’s a blog post about my wedding if you are interested), and decided to start my own business. I love what I do, and feel honored to get to create details that add to such a wonderful day!
