We are Jason and Jesica Clemmons and we live in the beautiful North Georgia Mountains with our three kiddos.  Jason is a photographer and I am an Appalachian inspired soap-maker. We also have Sunrise Grocery in Blairsville, Georgia. We sell local items like our photography, soap, knitting, local pottery, jams & jellies, honey and other unique, local goodies.  We started Souled in Appalachia because we feel our souls are deeply rooted in these mountains and we love exploring, shooting photos & videos and writing about them. Our mountains are full of history, culture, stories, and remarkable views. We feel more connected to them & our souls fed with every outing. We would love for you to join us on these journeys via blogs, videos & photography. Our hope is that we can bring it to you in a way that makes you feel the same passion we do and that you will become, Souled in Appalachia.
