It was an honor for everyone of us here at The Leonardi to have the opportunity to make portraits for the people in the wedding industry. Not only are these people the who’s-who of the industry who inspire and motivate us daily to keep going, they have also become good friends who we respect for being so passionate about serving their clients and doing the best at their jobs.
This project is for a feature in the 7th edition of Lightworks Magazine, wedding magazine run by a husband and wife by the name of Ruth and Danang. Danang is actually the one running Lightworks, an event lighting company. Ruth is actually a dentist who, on the sides, is helping her husband with the networking and publishing the Lightworks Magazine which aims to inspire couples to find the right wedding vendors. What started out as a favor to help him became something they passionately pursue together. They have discovered that they make a great team, not only in marriage, but also professionally.
