What rules apply to a civil wedding?

Hi There

I have a side job in freelance photography in which i am trying to build so i can make that my fulltime career, I do not depend on it as my sole income but it does help. Now my concern is i have a couple asking me to do their wedding which is outside of the Catholic faith. Would it be wrong for me to shoot that wedding? or is it just considered another job that we do? Such as working with our other interfaith colleagues in the workplace.

They are not gay, i believe they are atheist just having a civil wedding.

I appreciate the help.
