(Newser) – Alexi Lubomirski is accustomed to photographing celebrities, but he had a shoot this week that was more high profile than usual: the engagement portraits for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, which USA Today has deemed "exquisite." People reports that Lubomirski captured the pair earlier this week at Windsor Castle's Frogmore House, and a Kensington Palace tweet Thursday displayed the two official picks from the session.

In a color photo, Markle and Harry are lounging on a set of outdoor stairs, with Markle leaning close into her fiance. The second portrait is a close-up black-and-white, showing the pair laughing and pressing their faces together. Lubomirski made sure to put Markle's engagement ring front and center in both photos. "It was … a great privilege to be invited to share and be a witness to this young couple's love for one another," Lubomirski said in a statement from the palace. "I cannot help but smile when I look at the photos that we took of them, such was their happiness together."
