We present new photometric observations of the β Lyrae-type eclipsing binary systems NSVS 7322420 and NSVS 5726288. These observations represent the first multi-band photometry performed on these systems. The light curves were analyzed with phoebe, a front-end GUI based on the Wilson-Devinney program, to produce models to describe our observations. Our preliminary solutions indicate that NSVS 7322420 is a primary filling semi-detached system with unusual features warranting further study. These features include a pronounced O’Connell effect, a temporal variance in the light curve, and an unusual “kink” in the light curve around the secondary eclipse. The cause of these features is unknown, but one possibility is the transfer of mass between the component stars. Meanwhile, NSVS 5726288 is probably a typical detached system.
