Meghan Markle & Prince Harry's engagement photographer on the 'shocking' response to his shoot (Exclusive)

It sent shockwaves around the globe, but Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s engagement photographer, Alexi Lubomirski, says he was stunned at the outcry over the sheer gown Markle wore for the shoot.

Markle donned the dress, a long-sleeved gown with a sheer top and tulle skirt by Ralph & Russo, for the December shoot in Kensington Palace’s Sunken Gardens.

“I was very shocked with the reaction,” Lubomirski told ET’s Keltie Knight at The Daily Front Row Presents 4th Annual Fashion Los Angeles Awards on Sunday night. “To be honest, we tried on a couple of different things and that was just one that she felt comfortable in, so we weren’t really thinking, ‘Is it nude?’ or anything. We just thought, ‘Feel comfortable and let’s make some nice pictures.’”

Lubomirski joked that he got the gig because “nobody was available and they scraped the bottom of the barrel,” before explaining how someone had seen that he was in England and suggested to Markle that she meet with him.

“When I went to meet them to see if we vibed, they were just cutesy and every time they looked at each other they were like, [giggling],” said Lubomirski. “I was like, ‘This is gonna be great. This is gonna be easy.’ I said, ‘I just want to shoot you like this. This is what you're like.’”

The trio talked about the kind of photos they hoped to end up with, agreeing that they wanted the couple to appear “accessible, relatable.”

Lubomirski described the actual shoot as easy, “because they were so naturally in love,” and shared how Markle’s extensive experience with photo shoots, thanks to her acting career, was a huge blessing on the day.

“She was actually a godsend because obviously Prince Harry has done many photos before, but she really knew what goes into a photo shoot because she's done it so many times before,” he said of the Suits star. “So, it was wonderful to have her as a sort of coach on set. He kind of led her through and she led him through, and she just made it very nice and easy.”

Lubomirski has also photographed Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, Nicole Kidman, Jennifer Aniston and Katy Perry.

He was honored with the Photographer of the Year award at Sunday’s awards -- and was sure to give the royal couple a shout-out through ET!

“I had a very lucky year,” he said. “I think shooting Prince Harry and Meghan obviously was the biggest reason I'm here today, so I guess thank you to Harry and Meghan!”

11 ways Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's wedding will make history

Meghan Markle is an American

Meghan Markle is the first American to be officially engaged to a British royal. A few other firsts this bride-to-be checks off: she's a woman of color, divorced, a well-known actor, and was raised Catholic. Markle was just recently baptized and confirmed in the Church of England. After her wedding to Prince Harry, she will have to go through the process of becoming a citizen of the U.K. Don't miss these royal wedding etiquette rules every member of the family must follow.

The date

The day that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will exchange vows is May 19th, 2018, which breaks a couple royal traditions. To start, the wedding is on a Saturday. In the past, royal weddings have typically been held on a weekday. Queen Elizabeth II got married on a Thursday, Prince Charles and Princess Diana on a Wednesday, and Prince William and Kate on a Friday. Also, the wedding will be held on the same day as Britain’s historic soccer cup competition, the Emirates FA Final Cup. Prince William is the president of the Football Association and usually makes an appearance at the Final Cup. But this year, we guess he has other events to attend!

The cake

This is just a rumor, but there has been talk that the royal couple's wedding cake will be banana. Multi-tiered fruitcake has typically been the wedding cake choice of royal couples before them. Formal royal chef Darren McGrady said that Harry has always loved anything made with bananas, so it could be the chosen dessert at their wedding. Check out these other weird eating habits of the royal family.

It's not a holiday

When Prince Harry and Markle announced their engagement, the British government told the public that there "isn't a precedent in this area" for a bank holiday to be declared for the royal wedding. The date, however, falls on a Saturday, so it’s likely that crowds will still be able to gather to celebrate the royal nuptials.

(Getty)

It won't be as grand as previous royal weddings

Yes, in comparison to your average wedding, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding will be extremely grand. But in comparison to other royal weddings, it’s going to be much more low-key. Since Prince Harry is fifth in line to the throne, there’s less pressure for him to have a super traditional wedding. It’s going to be held in St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle just outside of London, which is a little quainter than Westminster Abbey where Prince William and Kate wed. Don't miss these secrets about Windsor Castle you never knew.

(Getty)

There won't be a famous balcony kiss

Many recently married royal couples have kissed on the balcony of Buckingham Palace. However, since their ceremony is taking place at St. George’s Chapel, they likely won’t be making the hour-long trip back to London and Buckingham Palace to capture this classic royal moment.

(Getty)

There will be no procession through London

You probably guessed that this isn’t going to happen either. Since the couple likely won’t be coming back to London after the ceremony, there won't be a London procession for the public to congratulate them—however, Kensington Palace announced there will be a procession through Windsor directly following the ceremony at 1 p.m. local time. Find out the special flower that must be included in every royal wedding bouquet.

They invited the public to their wedding

Prince Harry and Markle want the public to feel as though they are a part of the celebration as much as possible—so they plan to invite 2,640 members of the public to watch them arrive and depart from St. George’s Chapel. Those lucky enough to be chosen to attend the royal wedding will be allowed onto the grounds of the castle for the nuptials.

There won't be as many dignitaries in attendance

Those lucky enough to be chosen to attend the royal wedding will be allowed onto the grounds of the castle for the nuptials.

Meghan Markle's father may not escort her down the aisle

Meghan Markle is certainly not afraid to do her wedding her own way. Markle reportedly wants her mother, Doria Ragland, to walk her down the aisle. While this isn’t that much of a surprise given Markle's close relationship with her mother—and many brides have chosen to forgo the classic tradition of having their father walk them down the aisle—for a royal wedding, it’s definitely something new.
