They’re ready for their close-up!

Kensington Palace has announced that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have chosen fashion photographer Alexi Lubomirski to shoot the royal wedding on May 19.

In addition to working for countless fashion magazines, Lubomirski photographed the couple for their official engagement photos last December.

Lubomirski, who was just named Photographer of the Year at the Fashion Los Angeles Awards, has social media to thank for his new high-profile gig.

The lensman told E! News recently that Markle had tracked him down on Instagram.

“It was nutty,” he told the outlet. “It was a very surreal end to the year because it came out of nowhere. 

“I think one of Meghan’s friends saw me on Instagram that I was in England during the announcement of the engagement, and I was told later that this person said to her, ‘You should meet Alexi. He’s great. You’d love him’ —and that was it.”
