Triumph West Fargo Wedding | Sasha & Nathan | Kris Kandel Photographer

Posted in: Fun, weddings

 I’ve been excited about Sasha & Nathan’s wedding day since we did their engagement session this spring! They were so much fun to work with! Such gentle and joyful spirits that radiate love. What more could a photographer ask for?!!

 I arrived at Triumph Lutheran West Fargo campus just in time to get into the dress!

Brides take note, if your dress has tons of buttons be sure to bring a crochet hook to help loop the elastic. So much easier!

I loved all the smiles and laughter going on in the bride’s room with her mom & sister!

Sasha & Nathan exchanged letters, and they each picked out a scent for each other. What a fun idea! Now every time they use their perfume or cologne they’ll be taken back to their wedding day!

The first look was one of the sweetest I’ve seen. Tears and huge grins. *melts*

The week of the wedding we got a huge wind storm so a few days before the wedding I went scouting around town for a few hours to find a park that has a few leaves still on the trees. I was able to find one and boy did we luck out on perfection! I’m seriously in love with SOOO many of these photos!! Just look at those smiles!!

Gah. Seriously guys stop, I can’t handle this!

I love the contrasting looks that I got and my 2nd photographer (thanks sis!) got from her angle.

Then we walked down to a path through the trees. Isn’t this spot amazing! So dramatic and romantic at the same time!

So gorgeous!

And Nathan looking dapper!

One of my favorites:

We had a few extra minutes before the wedding party joined us, so I turned to my sister and said, “I’ve got this idea…”  so with a little help from the maid of honor and best man and my sister throwing leaves around we got a pretty magical result!

Thanks for trusting me on this! 😀

Wedding party time!!

After we did family photos back at the church everyone took a break and I did some details.

Then just as the sun was setting it was time for the ceremony!

Congratulations MR  MRS!!!

And just a little bit of time at the Avalon West reception!! Just enough time to get some details and then as people went through the buffet my time was up so I  headed back to my office to back everything up. What an amazing day!!!

Thank you Sasha & Nathan for inviting me to be part of your special day! It was truly magical. I’ll be getting you your link to download all your photos sent over early next week. Until then feel free to share this blog post with friends and family so they can see my personal favorites from the day. 🙂
