Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie already hold the record for the most expensive baby pictures ever sold -- $14 million from People magazine for the 2008 images of their twins, Vivienne and Knox. Now, could they nab the same title with their wedding photos?
“The weekly magazine market has changed beyond recognition since 2008,” one publisher told me. “Gone are the days when competing magazines would bid against each other, inflating the price of baby and wedding pictures. If Brad and Angie's twins were born today in 2012, they would be lucky if they got a third of what they got back then.”
But a market decrease shouldn't affect Brad and Angelina's personal bank account too much. They donated 100 percent of the revenue from their twins' photos to charity.
“In this market, the wedding pictures might be worth around $5 million,” one magazine insider tells me. “That would be for worldwide rights, so that whoever buys them in the USA could make money selling them to publications in other countries. Although the big question will be what sort of access will the couple allow? If it's just a few shots where you can’t see the dress or them kiss, then it could be lower.”
And although many insiders think Brangelina's wedding will be a low-key affair, look no further than Angie’s infamous right leg to understand that this actress knows how to strike a pose.
