Brandie & Ted : NIU, DeKalb, IL Engagement Photography

Northern Illinois University is where the magic happened for Brandie and Ted: it’s where they met, where they had their first kiss, and where Ted proposed.  When Brandie told me that she wanted to do the session on the NIU campus, I was 100% on board!  It was so awesome be able to capture these two at a place that was so meaningful to the them and get a little glimpse into their relationship.   niu-engagement-photography_01.jpg
