I met Amanda at Northern Illinois University where we both graduated with our Bachelors in Fine Art – Photography. We’ve been friends since 2010, and since we met at NIU, it was only natural for Amanda to want to shoot her engagement photos on the campus. Jeff, who is also an NIU alumni, LOVES hockey (and so does Amanda)…scroll down to see their awesome, custom NIU jerseys that they even got personalized with their wedding date on the back! Adorable! (spoiler alert: no “Save the Dates” were spoiled in the making of this post, sorry guys, no wedding date shown here!!) Amanda wanted her photos to be taken around the art building where most of our classes were held, and near the “castle”…and Swen Parsen Hall; three of the most gorgeous buildings on campus. NIU is home to the front of the “castle” and three other state universities have the two sides and the back, so that if you were to put all of the pieces together, you would make one giant castle! How awesome is that?! We definitely had a blast reliving our college days and wandering around campus taking gorgeous photos! Amanda + Jeff, enjoy your engagement photos and congratulations…can’t wait to shoot your wedding next year!
