I love Stories. Reading, watching movies, and photography.
I got my degree in history, not because of names and dates but because of all the stories. People's lives filled with little details: what their clothes looked like, they way their language changed, or what music they listened to.
I photograph weddings for the same reason. To observe and chronicle your story. Someday kids will look through these images and see your love story and view the history of their family!
How cool is that?!
Hi, I'm Kris Kandel!
I love a good mystery, or a gorgeously filmed mini series (Talk about eye candy for the soul - the British Isles make me swoon!).
I've also got a pretty strong Geek side. Lord of the Rings LITERALLY gives me warm fuzzies when I pick up the book and read the first line. Doctor Who makes me RIDICULOUSLY happy. And in high school I'd watch the NASA shuttle launches online, in awe of the skills needed to send people to space!! Which of course means I love a good scifi book or movie. Bring on warp speed!
I started working in photography in 2001 with a wonderful couple who taught me so many skills. In 2004 they retired and I started my own business! in 2008 I moved to the Fargo area and love it here! I sometimes joke that I've started my business multiple times, switching from film to digital, and moving cities etc. I'm finally in a place that feels right!
Last year I bought a foreclosed 1948 house and have loved getting down and dirty fixing it up! There's something magical about bringing something back to life and beauty!
Lately my life has revolved around puppy training. Meet Bokeh! She's 1/2 German shepherd, 1/4 Australian shepherd, 1/4 Collie. Her name is actually a photography term, in a photograph when lights turn into circles in the background - that's Bokeh. It fits her personality perfectly, sparkly and beautiful!
One of my favorite things is meeting couples and getting to know YOUR stories! I'd love to meet up at a coffee shop sometime, hear about how you met and get to know if we are a good fit for each other.
I can't wait to hear from you!
ONE OF MY GUILTY PLEASURES IS READING YA NOVELS. I'M NOT SURE IF I SHOULD LEAVE THAT HERE ON THE WEBSITE FOR THE WORLD TO SEE, LOL! IN 2016 I READ OVER 100 BOOKS! OF COURSE SOME OF THOSE WERE ALSO BOOKS ON BUSINESS AND GROWING IN FAITH. ;)
LATELY MY LIFE HAS REVOLVED AROUND PUPPY TRAINING. MEET BOKEH! SHE'S 1/2 GERMAN SHEPHERD, 1/4 AUSTRALIAN SHEPHERD, 1/4 COLLIE. HER NAME IS ACTUALLY A PHOTOGRAPHY TERM: IN A PHOTOGRAPH WHEN LIGHTS TURN INTO CIRCLES IN THE BACKGROUND - THAT'S BOKEH. IT FITS HER PERSONALITY PERFECTLY, SPARKLY AND BEAUTIFUL!
<<<< My sister is my second photographer at weddings! I love working with her!! <<<<
IN THE WINTER I WATCH A BIT TOO MUCH TV.
I LOVE A GOOD MYSTERY:
OR A GORGEOUSLY FILMED MINI SERIES
(TALK ABOUT EYE CANDY FOR THE SOUL - THE BRITISH ISLES MAKE ME SWOON!)
I'VE ALSO GOT A PRETTY STRONG GEEK SIDE.
LORD OF THE RINGS LITERALLY GIVES ME WARM FUZZIES WHEN I PICK UP THE BOOK AND READ THE FIRST LINE. DOCTOR WHO MAKES ME RIDICULOUSLY HAPPY.
