A Local’s Look At Atlanta

A Local's Look at Atlanta
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 rosé 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!)
Shop – This is Brick and Mortar, Star Provisions (also great place for a treat!)
Dinner – JCT Bar (get the Angry Mussels, the Hanger Steak, and a fun cocktail)

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)
