Famed fashion photographer Mario Testino recently revealed what went on behind the scenes of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s engagement photo session.

Testino described his inspiration for the shoot to US Vogue: “Two people in love have a glow and a presence more powerful than anything else, and I wanted that to be the subject of the picture.”

While the photographer had never worked with Middleton before, he naturally had nothing but nice things to say about the princess-to-be: “I already felt very confident that she would be an easy sitter, as she has natural grace, a very open personality, and a beautiful face and posture….It was a real treat to photograph her.”

Testino also had a hand in selecting the white Reiss dress for the shoot and even brought along some tunes—songs by French singer Dalida, which he also played when he worked with Princess Diana.
