The gorgeous photo of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West kissing at their wedding garnered a huge response on Facebook and Instagram, but according to Kanye, this Keeping Up With The Kardashians social media gem was nearly destroyed by Annie Leibovitz. Why is the hip hop artist so angry at the photographer?
Annie Leibovitz has worked extensively with the Kardashian family in the past, and as such, was all set to take photos of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West on their wedding day. Instead, the photographer wound up backing out at the last moment, a move that greatly upset the newly married couple.
During a recent appearance at the Cannes Lions Festival, Kanye admitted that the lovebirds put a ton of work into the iconic wedding photo before it took Twitter by storm. ”Let me tell you something about that kiss photo that [Kim] 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.”
After the photographer backed out, Kim and Kanye hired young celebrity photographer Conor McDonnell. Adamant that the shoot should still “look like Annie Leibovitz,” the couple ended up spending the first several days of their honeymoon perfecting the photos. The images were obviously well worth the effort; the kiss picture wound up capturing the Instagram record for most likes. Kanye later admitted that he was proud that the top Instagram photo was also one that “[raised] the palette.”
