About an hour north from Marietta is a mountain town called Ellijay. I’ve driven through it multiple times on the way to the Great Smoky Mountains or Blue Ridge, but I’ve never gotten the chance to stop and explore. The drive up here was BEAUTIFUL with rolling hills and glimpses of the North Georgia mountains.
Closer to the location, we drove through downtown Ellijay which was an adorable strip of vintage style buildings. There was even a cute school bus parked next to the location, however we didn’t go up to it for the fear of trespassing (every photographer’s nightmare), plus there was a police car nearby. Still, it added to the small town vibe!
In the end, we got some beautiful photos that captures the quiet, magical feeling of this Georgia mountain town. If you are ever up to drive and explore a little bit, I am your girl!
