(Newser) – Prince William recruited photography royalty to shoot his engagement photo with Kate Middleton, reports People. Fashion photographer Mario Testino, who took some of William and Harry's favorite photos of Princess Diana, has taken "some engagement photographs," the prince's rep confirms today. The results are supposed to be released this month. Testino became a favorite of the princes after an iconic photo shoot with their mother—a month before her death—that they thought showed her at her most natural, reports the Telegraph.

"William is a very photogenic person ... self-confident, relaxed, impressive—and so much like his mother," Testino says. "I think it comes from a sense of security."
