Andrew's answer is correct, but...

It is a mixture of Beautiful Caps ES (Bold)

Beautiful Caps ES (Bold)

and Beautiful ES (Italic)

Beautiful ES (Italic)

To determine this, I found a PDF on her website that features the logo. Sometimes you can get lucky with an embedded font not being outlined.

Illustrator will tell you all the fonts you need if you open the PDF:

whiny Illustrator

The font BeautifulCapsES,Bold is missing. Affected text will be displayed using a substitute font.

The font BeautifulES,Italic is missing. Affected text will be displayed using a substitute font.

The font DaunPenh is missing. Affected text will be displayed using a substitute font.

The font FuturaBT-Heavy is missing. Affected text will be displayed using a substitute font.

Then just select the text that looks weird and see what font it should be, or you can use the Find Font dialogue to cycle through where these fonts are used (fonts denoted with an asterisk are the problem fonts)

Find Font


*These fonts are just likely just stolen and re-named. I would advise against using them for a commercial project!

So it's actually a rip-off of an Adobe font! –  Andrew Leach Jul 3 '13 at 17:19
    
+1 Very clever! –  Johannes Jul 3 '13 at 17:21
    
@AndrewLeach indeed :) (I've updated my answer to note that). The legality of these fonts is ...questionable. I actually just thought they were really similar, but you're right! There's quite clearly something shady going on here –  JohnB Jul 3 '13 at 17:28

You can use What the Font for this sort of thing, provided that you separate the letters (the swash W presents a bit of a challenge with that!)

It's Bickham Script Pro — the clincher is the lower-case y. The glyph list includes the swash W.
