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!

Trollwood Bluestem Wedding | Sydney & Abram | Kris Kandel Photographer

Sydney & Abram’s wedding day at The Bluestem Center in Moorhead could not have been more perfect! We kept saying all day “Is this real? It’s all going so smoothly and the weather is perfect, and … wow”

First look time!

Abram and Sydney were so happy all day. It makes my job such a joy!

Abram asked to start with a few photos including his car in the background. You may remember their engagement session included the same car.:)Abram was so excited and yelled out,”New desktop photo!”

Perfect golden leaves. Perfect golden laughter.

I could photograph you two all day (which I did, but seriously, all the giddy photographer feelings going on here!).

Sydney’s bouquet was one of the most unique bouquets I’ve ever seen. It was made from WOOD! Seriously. The flowers were folded and layered and cut sheets of lightweight wood dyed in different colors. Stunning!

The romance is strong with you two.


Then the wedding party joined us for another loop around the Bluestem property!

These ladies were so amazing! All the laughter!!

Cheers and leaves and kisses. #goals

Another favorite!

After family photos Abram and Sydney exchanged letters.

How cool is Abram’s ring?!

Here you can see a bit more of the wooden flower’s texture:

And then it was time for the LONG walk to the pavilion for the wedding ceremony.

Instead of a unity candle or sand Sydney & Abram potted a plant. How cool is that?!

Congratulations Mr & Mrs!!!

The next photo kind of cracks me up. It can be challenging to work around all the other cameras sometimes, but sometimes it’s kind of hilarious too!

Toasts are always a fun time!

After dinner and the toasts we stepped outside for a few sunset portraits of the bride & groom. How gorgeous did these turn out?! I LOVE the big skies around Fargo!

Love this angle my second photographer (thanks sis) got!

The first dance was so sweet!

And then the dance floor filled up!

I absolutely adore wedding dances that include a live band! Heart & Soul was amazing to work with, if you are planning an event be sure to check them out!!

What an epic wedding day! Thank you Sydney & Abram for inviting me to be part of it! I had a blast working with you! I hope you enjoyed these personal favorites of mine. I’ll be sending you the link to download and share your images soon.:)

Anniversary Photos by Kris Kandel Fargo Photographer | Jordan & Aaron

It’s a little bit early for their anniversary session since they were married last December, but we all agreed the fall colors were too good to pass up!

They had to include Truffles in their photos of course. This little 7 lbs of fluff was so photogenic, she kept looking at the camera perfectly!!

I love the last one in the series below, it reminds me of the scene in 101 Datamations where the dogs wrap up their humans, lol!

Happy Anniversary you two!! Always fun to reconnect and also meet your little Truffles! 😀
