Andrea & Rui – their wedding day – The Newark Club

It is always wonderful to work with a couple who are so in love with each other, and easy-going with any ideas for the romantic portraits. Even going out on the cold evening and patiently working with me for a few killer photos outside, didn’t faze them. The photo at the top was taken outside their reception venue – The Newark Club. The photo session earlier on was at Verona Park – great as a romantic setting.

Andrea and Rui, congratulations. It was a lovely experience meeting you and working with you as your wedding photographer.

I particularly like the way you composed the glasses. The background lights really add to it.

Hi Neil,

First thanks for the great blog and the many informative articles! Your work speaks for itself, and it’s awesome.

Just one question – could you briefly explain the setup on the first shot? I assume the rim light is from the traffic in the background, but how did you light them from the front? Speedlight+umbrella? That is definitely one of my favorite wedding photographs I’ve seen!

Best Regards,
