This past week Kalysa and Dustin met up with Graddy Photography in Northfield for their engagement session.  We braved the cold to beat the snow that was sure to come.  It turned out to not be as bad as anticipated but still felt like winter in April.  The couple plan to tie the knot this May at the JW Marriott hotel in Bloomington, Minnesota…..can’t wait!

This past week we hooked up our trailer and headed fast south of out this frozen tundra of Minnesota to Tennessee.  We basically didn’t quite know exactly where we were going but made the decision once we got half way through Missouri to stick to Tennessee instead of heading down to Gulfport/Biloxi, Mississippi.  The weather was in the high 70’s and even reached 80 one of the days we were there.  Here are just a few fine art shots I took inside the Smoky Mountains.
