Hi! My name is Kathryn McCrary and I own my own freelance photography business. My husband and I have lived in Atlanta for a little over 4 years and we love living on the Westside with our precious puppy, Penny. I started my business back in 2011 after several friends and coworkers “hired” me to take their family’s photos. I quit my day job a little over two years ago and took my photography business full time, shooting everything from weddings and babies to fashion and food. My portfolio has grown a lot since then and I currently love shooting food and fashion and creating lifestyle images for brands ranging from bloggers to commercial clients. When I’m not shooting and editing, you can find me with a glass of rosÃ© in my hand and a tennis ball in the other, playing in our yard with our pup and talking dreams with my husband.
Atlanta is such an amazing town to call home and a fun city to visit in the summertime. When I travel, I plan out my days around food and like to map out the perfect travel route. So, I decided to map out my dream weekend in Atlanta for you!
Lunch – Shake Shack (get the Shack Burger and chocolate shake)
Shop – Waiting on Martha (pop up shop at Shops Around Lenox only open for the summer!)
Dinner – JCT Bar (get the Angry Mussels, the Hanger Steak, and a fun cocktail)
Breakfast – Sublime Doughnuts (get the Fresh Strawberry N Cream, Nutella, and Salted Caramel!!!)
Shop – Scott’s Antique Market (only open the 2nd weekend of every month, so plan accordingly)
Fun – Monday Night Brewery (fun place to hang and try some of Atlanta’s craft beer!)
Dinner – Bar Taco (get the guac, margarita, side of corn, and the sesame ribeye rice bowl)
Coffee/After Dinner Drinks – Octane (right across the street from Bar Taco and they sometimes have live music)
Brunch – Sun In My Belly (get the P.B.L.T + fried egg)
Fun – walk the Eastside Beltline trail (starting at Piedmont Park at 10th and Monroe)
Snack – King of Pops window in Inman Park (it’s right off the Beltine)
If you come to Atlanta and go to any of my fave spots, I’d love to know! I’m on Instagram @kathrynmccrary and love connecting people with the best food and places to go when traveling. Happy traveling and hope you love Atlanta!
