“We had spares of everything — cables, lights, cameras, lenses — and spares for the spares,” photographer Hudo explained of preparing for the royal photo shoot (via Women’s Wear Daily. “Before the day, we staged dress rehearsals with stand-ins and stop-watches. We knew that if everyone had sprinted back from Westminster Abbey, we would only have had 44 minutes to shoot. In the end, we did everything in 26 minutes.” With the help of seven staff members and dress designer Sarah Burton, Hugo shot the photographs in the Throne Room at Buckingham Palace just after the ceremony and just before the kiss on the balcony. The couple’s families, bridesmaids and pages were photographed in a style that was meant to be “effortless, calm and beautiful. “There were a lot of preliminary meetings and walk-throughs of the Throne Room. Catherine loves photography and is very interested in it. Just how light we wanted the family picture to be became a project for us,” Hugo explained. “We wanted the room to look like it was flooded with sunlight from a spring morning, filled with glorious light. And we knew we couldn’t count on the weather, so we created it with the flip of a switch.” Hugo’s favorite photo is the one featuring William and Kate with the children. “It was the last one we took — and you can imagine everyone anxiously looking at their watches,” he said. “I promised the kids jelly beans and wiggle worms, and it worked out.”
