Wedding photographer chosen (and it's not Mario Testino)

By Autumn Brewington

Famed fashion photographer Mario Testino may have taken the official engagement portraits of Prince William and Kate Middleton, but he's apparently been passed over for the wedding.

Britain's Daily Mail is reporting that the royal couple have selected Hugo Burnand, a "society photographer" whose portfolio includes the 2005 wedding of William's father, Prince Charles, to Camilla Parker-Bowles.

Burnand, whom the Mail said has worked at Tatler magazine since 1993, has captured other royal moments as well, including Charles's 60th birthday portrait.

The irony is that while Testino has also photographed several royals, his photos of William's mother, Princess Diana, are iconic. They were featured in a long-running exhibition at Kensington Palace and on the cover of the commemorative book sold at the concert William and his brother, Prince Harry, hosted in 2007 to celebrate what would have been Diana's 46th birthday.

This will be a boon for the wedding industry here in the USA. Save your money! The cost of a wedding just went up $10,000.
The government may shut down but the wedding business will be good.
