Kimye Spent 4 Days Editing Wedding Photo

Speaking at the Cannes Lions festival on Tuesday, Kayne West told the audience that it took him and Kim Kardashian four days to perfect Kim’s Instagram wedding photo. West also revealed that celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz was originally supposed to capture the picture but backed out at the last minute.

“Let me tell you something about that kiss photo that my girl put up… this was pissing my girl off during the honeymoon, she was exhausted because we worked on the photo so much because Annie Leibovitz pulled out right before the wedding. I think that she was, like, scared of the idea of celebrity.”

Leibovitz worked with the couple earlier this year when she photographed their controversial Vogue cover. The cover and magazine received major backlash so Leibovitz’s hesitation to work with the couple again isn’t a complete surprise. Her absence didn’t deter West though. He was determined to get his Leibovitz-quality shot.

But because Annie pulled out, I was like, ‘I still want my wedding photos to look like Annie Leibovitz’s photo,’ and we sat there and worked on that photo for four days, because the flowers were off-color and stuff like that.”

“Can you imagine telling someone who wants to just Instagram a photo, who’s the number one person on Instagram, ‘We need to work on the color of the flower wall,’ or the idea that it’s a Givenchy dress, and it’s not about the name Givenchy, it’s about the talent that is Riccardo Tisci and how important Kim is to the internet.”

The couple’s hard work paid off. The photo is currently the most liked picture on Instagram with over 2.29 million likes and 51,000 comments.
