You know that picture of Kimye kissing on their wedding day? That apparently took four days to complete. Kanye West was in Cannes for the Cannes Lions Creativity Conference when he told the tale of the first official picture with wife Kim Kardashian.

West claims famous photographer Annie Leibovitz was on board as their photographer but pulled out the day before because, according to Kanye, she's "afraid of celebrity." “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" he said. "I think that she was, like, scared of the idea of celebrity.” “Because Annie pulled out, 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," he explained."
West also found a way to pepper in some dramatic compliments of his wife, as per usual. “Can you imagine telling someone who wants to just Instagram a photo, who’s the No. 1 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," he said. "And how important Kim is to the Internet." Kanye maybe a little kooky, but he has a point. Kim and Kanye's wedding photo is the most liked picture on Instagram, with over 1.93-million likes and more that 35,000 comments.
