Kanye West revealed that photographer Annie Leibovitz pulling out of the wedding a day to the event left him and Kim Kardashian in a tight spot.
“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.”
According to the hip-hop star, the famed photographer — who shot Kim and Kanye for their Vogue cover — backed out one day before their nuptials. British photographer Conor McDonnell, 22, ended up landing the gig.
“I think that [Annie] was, like, scared of the idea of celebrity,” West mused. “I was like, ‘Okay, I still want my wedding photos to look like Annie Leibovitz,’ and we sat there and worked on that photo for, like, four days because the flowers were off-color.”
All of Kim and Kanye’s hard work paid off. Their wedding snap became the most-liked image ever on Instagram, receiving more than 2.28 million likes and counting, and more than 51,000 comments.
