Fargo Senior Photographer Kris Kandel | Alyssa Downtown Fall Session

A few weeks ago Alyssa met me downtown for her senior photos! She loves the autumn colors, golds, reds and deep greens. We had a lot of fun wandering around finding cools spots and lots of beautiful corners!

I actually met Alyssa years ago at a wedding when she was a Jr bridesmaid! How fun is that?!

And then randomly I ran into her at a wedding reception three days after her senior portrait session! So funny to see each other twice in one week at two different photo shoots.

Thanks for a fun senior photo session Alyssa, I hope you love your pictures!!

Engagement & Pet session | Libby & Josh | Kris Kandel Photography

Libby & Josh’s engagement session started out including their two bulldogs! How adorable are they all?!

I really love the photo of the two dogs with the leash tangled up, it reminds me of 101 Dalmations matchmaking their humans. 🙂


One of the things I really love about Libby & Josh is how easily they laugh together. The joy these two have is something magical.

A quick outfit change and we headed downtown for the classic “Fargo theater” background.


I love walking around downtown Fargo and using spaces that I’ve never noticed before. Architecture and lines, alleys and interesting reflections. There’s always something new to discover!

I seriously can’t wait for their wedding, there two are just too much fun to photograph!

Downtown Fargo Summer Engagement Session | Taylor & Sebastian | Kris Kandel Photographer

These two were a blast to work with! Sebastian had us laughing the whole time with his jokes and funny faces as we walked around downtown Fargo.

I’m loving this spot for photos of the Fargo Theater sign, but I have a feeling that tree is going to grow too big next year and cover the sign. So I’ll enjoy the spot while I can. 😀

Reflections on love:

Oh my goodness, you guys are making my job way too much fun!

So perfect! I love how your engagement ring is showing in the photo below. So pretty!

Gotta play with the height differences. 😉

Outfit and location change. By this time everyone was really relaxed and just having a good time. Love all the laughter!!

One of my favorites!!

But you do serious so well too!! Can’t pick a favorite.

Since they met at Concordia College we had to finish off the session showing off their college rings along side the engagement ring. What a fun detail! I’m so glad you guys went to school and found each other.

I hope you enjoyed these personal favorite photo teasers from your engagement session! I’ll be sending you the link to download all your photos in the next few days. Until then feel free to share this post with friends and family!

Downtown Fargo Engagement Photo Shoot | Amanda & Colin | Kris Kandel Photographer

A beautiful summer day in downtown Fargo. Perfect for an engagement session!!

Amanda & Colin were an absolute JOY to work with!

The happiness radiating was gorgeous!

Laughter is my favorite thing!

Since these two are getting married in January they brought a few hats and mittens for some fun photos in our July heat. 😀

Let’s do this “getting married” thing!!!

I’m Soooo lucky in my clients, really how fun are these two?! I can’t wait until January to break out some more winter gear and play in the snow on their wedding day. 😀

Fargo Engagement Photography | Stephanie & Cole | Kris Kandel Photographer


Down by the Red River the light was just dreamy last week!! Although the mosquitoes were really bad these two were awesome to work with!! (note to self: it’s time to start packing bug spray to engagement sessions!!) Just look at how gorgeous the photos turned out though!

I loved this little corner we found. The colors here were just so soft. Perfect for some romantic portraits. : )

One of my favorites, but it’s so hard to pick!

I LOVE the next sequence. If you follow my blog you know how much I love it when couples make each other laugh!

We were tired of the bugs by this point so off to downtown Fargo we go! Every time I go downtown I fall in love with this city a little bit more. The colors, the lights, the artistic vibe that has grown every year. It’s a perfect backdrop for fun engagement photos for sure!

By this time we were all relaxed and a little bit goofy. American Gothic stoic faces:

Another one of my favorite photos. I told them they looked like super-heroes in this one! So cool!!!

Even a mud puddle can be fun to play with in photography lol!!

So gorgeous Stephanie!

Thanks for an amazing engagement session Stephanie & Cole! It was so much fun getting to know you a bit! You were such great sports about my wacky ideas, “Hey stand right here next to the mud puddle!” I hope you had as much fun as I did. : ) Can’t wait for your wedding!!!
