Sunrise Fall Wedding | Jeshanah & Tanner | Kris Kandel Fargo Photographer

Jeshanah & Tanner wanted their wedding ceremony to start at 10:30 – so we had to start getting ready before dawn! You can just start to see the twilight out the windows.:)We got started in Jeshanah’s home, it was so sweet for her to get into her wedding dress in her own bedroom with her mom buttoning up the back. All the feels!!

As we headed out to the cars I just HAD to grab Jeshanah for a few sunrise-frost-in-the-foggy-field photos. Sigh. Simply stunning!!

The light!!!

We drove to The Hitching Post near Lake Park MN, where Tanner was waiting for the first look under the oak tree.

More frosty sunrise photos.

I kind of love how you can see their breath. The crisp air making a great excuse to get close and cuddle!

Love the golden colors!

One of my favorites:

We only had about 20 minutes for the wedding party but we got so much done in that time!

I love how joyful everyone is – except maybe the groom’s brother, lol!

Beautiful ladies!

So many fun images!


I love this closeup detail my sister (second photographer) got.

After family photos we had about 10 minutes to do details before the ceremony started!

10:30 am and it’s time to walk down the aisle.

The morning light streamed through the two windows lighting up the dust to become glitter in the air.

Congratulations Mr & Mrs!!

After the brunch and toasts we headed outside for another 10 minutes with the wedding party before our time was up.

Congratulations you two, thank you for inviting me into your wedding day! I hope you enjoyed these personal favorite photos, I’ll be sending you the link to download them all in the next few days. Until then share this link with your friends and family!

Fargo Home Photographer Kris Kandel | Real Estate Photography

Over the last few months I’ve been working with several realtors here in Fargo/Moorhead and the Detroit Lakes areas photographing homes and lake places! I absolutely LOVE it!! If you’ve followed along on the blog for a while you’ll notice that pretty much every session or wedding includes a few images that highlight architecture as much as the people. It’s always been something I really enjoy, taking photos of buildings, spaces, angles, lines and figuring out how to showcase venues as much as moments. So real estate photography has been a perfect match!

Plus it’s pretty fun to be able to walk through houses and see how each one is laid out. I especially love the older homes that are full of corners, built ins and strange rooms added on. So much character.

So if you are a realtor in Fargo Moorhead or know of one looking for a professional photographer for their online listings (can we just say how huge online listings are these days, everyone wants to see photos of the homes before setting up a walk-through!!)… send them my way!

I’ve got a special website set up just for real estate work, so send them here:

And just because no blog post is complete without too many images here is a peek at a few recent homes:

Don’t worry, I’ll still be doing weddings and other sessions, but this has been such a great new adventure I wanted to share it here on the blog!

Cheers! – Kris

Family and Pet Photography by Kris Kandel | Keri & JJ | Fargo photographers

Do you remember Keri & JJ from their engagement session last fall? Well this fall I got to meet the rest of their family! I absolutely love working with people again, reconnecting and getting to see and hear how their lives have changed and grown since the last time we met!

What a good looking family!

Jessi the pup was so excited that she couldn’t contain herself, so we had a belly rubbing moment to help her settle and relax. Gotta love how happy she was!!

Beautiful family!

 Thanks so much for asking me to take your family photos this year Keri & JJ! It was awesome meeting the kids and Jessi, lets do it again next year. 😀

I hope you enjoyed these teasers, I’ll be sending you the link to download all the photo soon!
