Fargo Autumn Engagement Session | Vanessa & Kellen | Kris Kandel Photographer

 I met Vanessa through Jenna & Michael (she was one of their gorgeous bridesmaids!), and I was super excited to get to photographer her again, this time with her fiance Kellen! Gosh these two are a photographer’s dream!

As they did the dip kiss I mentioned that they seemed very practiced, and they started laughing. Evidently in High School they were a couple in a play and their teacher wanted them to be in the poster photos. She really thought these two should be dating so the photo shoot ended up (in Kellen’s words) being, “A one hour make-out session.” And several kisses added into the production. Their teacher is very pleased they are finally getting married since it was all her idea. ; )

Love these!!

I noticed both Kellen & Vanessa were wearing Concordia College rings, so I suggested the photo below. Pretty fun way to show off their class rings & the engagement ring too. Love it!

I think Vanessa & Kellen had the most perfect fall colors of all my sessions this year, exactly at the peak!

Gorgeous. I can’t handle it!

I love soooo many of these! Can’t choose a favorite.

See, perfect fall colors!! Add in a photogenic couple and I was having sooo much fun (I hope Vanessa & Kellen enjoyed it as much!). : )

Laughter is the most romantic thing.

Thanks for driving all this way and for an AWESOME session you guys! I can’t wait for your wedding next year! I’ll be getting your images/link put together for you in the next couple of days to download. Until then enjoy these teasers. : )
