This past week Graddy Photography headed up to Grand View Lodge to cover our fifth consecutive year of shooting for their dining guide.  It has been whirlwind of success through the years and we are looking forward to pushing ourselves further every year.  We have been meticulously planning the shoot for months from menu and presentation to the overall production.  We are extremely proud to work alongside some of the most talented, award-winning culinary chefs in the state and feel part of something truly special.  Graddy Photography would like to personally thank all the persons involved in the process from the chefs to the marketing team.  We look forward to many years of continued success and growth and look forward to many great things to come!  Thanks for placing your trust in Graddy Photography as your Minnesota resort photographer.

This week Graddy Photography welcomed another little newborn to the studio…meet Remington.  Amber and Tyler, have been clients of our going on three years now, hard to believe.  They are back for round two.  We have done all of Sabrina’s first year pictures from newborn to one year’s old and hope to see this little guy in again at six months and a year old.  Dad is currently deployed but will be home in May to see his little guy for the first time.  We should all be so thankful for our military and their families for the sacrifices they make day in and out.  Moments like these are when you realize the significance of how important these life moments are.  See you all next time in the near future!

This past week we welcomed baby Peyton to Graddy Photography studios for her first pictures!  We were so thrilled to meet her.  The parents, Katelyn and Ross, are former wedding clients of ours from 2014.  It is amazing how fast time flies but we are so thankful to be trusted once again with such a huge milestone in their lives.  Graddy Photography is certainly keeping busy in the winter months with the newborns and studio photography.  We look forward to an amazing spring here at our studio in Northfield.  Katelyn and Ross, thanks so much for making it out to the studio.  We can’t wait to see you all again in the fall!

This past weekend Graddy Photography kicked off our sixth year in business with Grand View Lodge with deVine, their annual wine experience.  With wine vendors from all over the country participating, it was sure to be a fabulous time.  Grand View Lodge had a great list of hosts for the dinners namely WCCO’s Jason DeRusha, Minnesota Monthly’s Joy Summers and Lenny Russo from Heartland.  Aside from the welcome dinner, the next day included a soup cook-off between all the in-house restaurants for the guests to sample and vote on as well as a judged cooking demo.  Throughout the day there were numerous seminars taking place and finally to cap the day off, the Grand Tasting which was held in the Gull Lake Center.  It blows me away every time to see the attention to detail and hard work that goes into making these events such a great success.  We are very much looking forward to this next year!  Thanks Grand View Lodge for choosing Graddy Photography as your Minnesota resort photographer!

This past week Graddy Photography made our way down to the Round Barn Farm in Red Wing, Minnesota.  It has been a few years since we were last here but now they are under new ownership and looking to expand on their operation.  It serves as a bed & breakfast in the rolling bluffs of Red Wing and Lake Pepin, an absolutely beautiful setting for a wedding or for a weekend away!  Thanks so much for choosing Graddy Photography as your Minnesota resort photographer…..wishing you guys all the best!
