Working on a fancy lettered identity mark for a wedding photographer. Trying to do something less formal and more rough/vintage looking than what I usually do.
I'm also going to chuck a straight divider line through those bottom swashes and add 'photography' in underneath.
Not final colours; I just like pink!

Lovely! I also really like it on the pink — understand that he/she might not.
One thing I'm drawn too is the crossbar at the 't' maybe a connected version?
Really rough — http://db.tt/Rz2fEQIG
EDIT:— On second thoughts I much prefer the original 't'. :)
Really like this, the fact that the individual letters aren't actually connected is a great touch. They still flow so well thanks to the little flicks at the top and bottom. Superb swashes in the middle too. The 'o' (and possibly the main body of 'e') feels a bit light especially compared to the 'u', but love the shape.
@Mathew Lucas I am having trouble with the t! Ha thanks for trying out a connected version for me :) Looking at that, I think it still needs some kind of gap around the crossbar. I guess it's just a matter of fiddling around with it. I could putting the cross bar on the bottom, but it could look like an 'l'. Also yes I like the pink too. But I like pink on everything!
@Claire Coullon Oh gosh Claire! I always have so much trouble with o's and e's. Something definitely needs to be done about the e, with such an open aperture (is that the correct term? I've been reading The Geometry of Type like a good girl :p) it looks a bit unbalanced. Also. I never know whether to give o's two thick strokes on either side, or just one on the left, I've seen it done both ways but never get it right... thoughts?
Pretty sure that's the correct term! Either way, yeah I completely know what you mean. For 'o's, I'd definitely say it can be either although when it has a rounded terminal or connecting bit (good terminology there), I usually think having the left side thick and right thinner (exactly as you've done) looks best, otherwise it can seem too heavy. I think all you'd need to do here is widen the left side a little.
For the 'e', I'd thicken the left side and then consider giving it a bit of weight on the upper right (it would then match the weight distribution of its swash, too). Sorry for the huge comment length, hope some of that makes sense!
@Claire Coullon Makes perfect sense. Will upload a revised version when I get back from holiday! Thanks :)
