Wills, Kate engagement pics to be released soonDecember 6th, 2010 - 3:25 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, Dec 6 (ANI): Kate Middleton and Prince William sat for their first engagement portrait with fashion photographer Mario Testino.
Testino - a fashion photographer who is well known for his pictures of celebrities and royalty - was behind the lens to shoot Middleton and her fiance for their first official photo.
He has also shot Prince William, Prince Harry and of course, their mother, Princess Diana.
A spokeswoman at William’s office confirmed that Testino has taken “some engagement photographs.” It’s believed the shoot took place last month, after the couple’s Nov. 16 engagement announcement, reports People.com.
“William is a very photogenic person … self-confident, relaxed, impressive - and so much like his mother. I think it comes from a sense of security,” Testino had said recently.
Testino is known for his memorable and candid pictures of Princess Diana taken for Vanity Fair in 1997 and exhibited at Kensington Palace in 2005.
Of the shoot, Testino has said, “[Diana] said to me at the time [that] her children had said to her it was the most ‘her’ they had seen.” (ANI)
