About Me

Brooke Ragsdale
Sweet Graphix Design & Photography is definitely NOT your average retail design and photography company.  My name is Brooke Ragsdale and I will work with throughout the process, starting with getting to know you so I can pick up on your personality traits all the way to your intentions for your finished designs and/or photographs.  I want you to walk away from this experience feeling like you will “do” something artistic or creative with the photographs instead of tossing them into an envelope and storing them in “that” box in your attic.

I am probably one of the most laid back and comical people you will ever meet.  I am known for taking awkward situations and turning them into something so funny it’s a top 10 honorable mention.  When working with me I want you to feel relaxed and walking away feeling like you had a blast. I’m a spectator for the most part.  I like to hang out on the “out-skirts” and watch my subjects interact, especially when photographing children.  I get so tickled when watching children interact with each other and when they discover something new.  Being able to capture the expression on their tiny little faces is a great way to document a monumental milestone and deserves to sit on the mantel.

Often with large groups of people like families, I have to get involved a bit more and suggest certain poses but I still like to stay in the background to photograph who you really are.  I want you to be able to look back through your photographs and see yourself and feel your personality jump off the page.

By now you should have a decent understanding of how I work and if you decide that my style isn’t what you are after, then I would be more than happy to refer you to a few other local companies that offer a different experience.  My mission for my photography business is not about creating art for myself but for you, my client.  I want to create things that YOU will appreciate and want hanging in your home for many, many years.  I’m all about dirty faces, bare feet splashing in puddles, crocs, scuffed knees.  These are real life things and moments and those are what I love to capture for you.  That being said, I love taking my photos a bit further and performing artistic edits on them.  For examples of that, please look through the retouching photo folder.

I want to be remembered for "Creating your life in Art."

Hello, welcome to my blog and congratulations on your engagement! I am a graphic designer/photographer based out of Chattanooga, TN, willing and able to travel, with an eye for feelings, emotions, and an uncanny ability to make people laugh at any given moment.
Wedding photography is all about the details. Being able to capture moments two people share on their special day is critical for a successful photo shoot. Wedding photography isn’t just about taking pictures of the wedding day, it’s about being able to get to know you as a couple, as individuals, and be able to show the world the charisma and personality your relationship has, that your love story has. For this reason alone, this is why I believe that it is critical that my clients have all of the digital image files from your wedding day. I do not believe in limiting the number of digital files you receive. What may be important to me might not be to you. Providing all digital image files allows you to revisit the entire day from start to finish. Because of the time invested with each wedding client, I am only able to accept a very limited number of weddings a year. I highly encourage you to contact me to set up a consultation where we can talk together about your wedding day and photography vision. Please email me at, today to reserve your special day!

I have to say a HUGE thank you to Jennifer Fuller Jones of Fuller Jones Photography for assisting me in the gut wrenching purchase of a Nikon D90 camera.  I have been using a Sony CyberShot for the past 3 years now and it is just not functioning as I need it to.  This is a great camera, don’t get me wrong but I am not a point and shoot kind of girl anymore.  So, if ANYONE is interested in purchasing my Sony CyberShot with a ton of lenses and accessories send an email to:
Please stay tuned for TONS of new picture’s as I learn how the Nikon D90 works.  This should be interesting.

My husband and I had a blast taking our two little girl’s to spend the day at the aquarium exploring all of the fish, birds, and habitats.  We were surprised to know that the penguins had delivered babies while we were there and you would have thought the president arrived with all of the security and crowds forming around there habitat to catch a look at the babies.
