Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Announce Royal Wedding Photographer

By

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle must have really been pleased with how their engagement photos turned out because they have chosen the same photographer to shoot their highly anticipated wedding on May 19.

On Friday, Kensington Palace announced that Alexi Lubomirski will have the honor of taking the couple's first official photographs as husband and wife at Windsor Castle following their nuptials at St. George's Chapel. This will be the second time Lubomirski has had Harry and Meghan pose for him, having taken their engagement photos in December at Kensington Palace’s Sunken Gardens.

"I could not be more thrilled or honored to photograph this historic occasion," he said in a statement. "Having taken Prince Harry and Ms. Markle's engagement photos, it brings me such joy to be able to witness again, the next chapter in this wonderful love story."

Earlier this week, ET's Keltie Knight spoke with Lubomirski about what the couple was like when he photographed them following their engagement announcement. 

“When I went to meet them to see if we vibed, they were just cutesy and every time they looked at each other they were like, [giggling],” he recalled. “I was like, ‘This is gonna be great. This is gonna be easy.’ I said, ‘I just want to shoot you like this. This is what you're like.’”

Lubomirski described the actual shoot as easy, “because they were so naturally in love,” and shared how Meghan’s extensive experience with photo shoots, thanks to her acting career, was a huge blessing on the day.

“She was actually a godsend because obviously Prince Harry has done many photos before, but she really knew what goes into a photo shoot because she's done it so many times before,” he said of the 36-year-old Suits star. “So, it was wonderful to have her as a sort of coach on set. He kind of led her through and she led him through, and she just made it very nice and easy.”
