Rainy North Shore Engagement Session, Duluth Minnesota / Mandy and Aaron

Mandy and Aaron and I hit it off during our initial meeting and we became good friends in the process of working together. They are exactly the kind of people who you meet and instantly feel like you've known for a long time. Indeed, two of the most genuine, kind, unique, funny, amazing people I've ever met.

Their engagement session consisted of an adventure-filled two days on Minnesota's North Shore. Our first day was spent dodging rain and driving together to shoot at various spots in Duluth. We ended the night with beers and ridiculously good sandwiches from Northern Waters Smokehaus (mine was an ethnically ambiguous creation of smoked salmon pate and assorted veggies nestled between ultra soft naan- who makes sandwiches like that?? In the unlikely event that you ever find yourself in Duluth, consider it very necessary to make a stop at this gem). 

The following morning we drove an hour north to Tettegouche State Park and shot amongst the amazing scenery there. To cap off the trip, I played a show with Treading North that very same night in downtown Duluth. The rest of the weekend was spent eating and hangin' with the band bros before heading back to Minneapolis. 

I included this ^ because as we drove around going to different spots, we listened to Bibio- now this song is entwined with my memories of that weekend.
