If and when Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie sell their south-of-France wedding pictures to the highest bidder (and then presumably donate the proceeds to charity), it will likely fall short of the haul generated by their biological daughter Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt. That’s just one of the intriguing tidbits contained in today’s Daily piece by Michelle Ruiz about the celeb shots currently most coveted by Hollywood paparazzi.
The first photos of Shiloh were sold to People magazine for a staggering $6 million, while pictures taken in Africa that confirmed the couple-status of Jolie and Pitt went for around $1 million. Ruiz estimates that Brangelina wedding day pics will net approximately $2 million:
“That’s going to be the wedding of the century,” Gary Morgan, CEO of Splash photo agency, told Flash of the nuptials. He bets the shots will be closely guarded and sold to the highest bidders in the U.S. and abroad. “They’ll revive the industry — for that week, anyway.”
While Beyonce and Jay-Z released photos of daughter Blue Ivy on Tumblr, the first legit outside shot of their offspring still comes in next behind the Brangelina wedding on The Daily’s paparazzi hit list, at $500,000. Tied with a similar expected worldwide price point for the first pictures of Jessica Simpson’s daughter.
Meanwhile, according to the article, a shot today of Shiloh and her famous siblings generates only about two thousand dollars.
