Kimye’s wedding kiss might be the most liked photo of all time on Instagram, but according to Kanye it wasn’t easy trying to get the perfect shot for that iconic snap.
Kanye talked about the famous photo at the Cannes Lions Festival today and admitted that he had to spend most of his honeymoon in Ireland editing the famous photo.
Kanye said that he wanted the picture of him kissing Kim in front of a wall of flowers to be as good as an Annie Leibovitz photo – who pulled out last minute from photographing the ceremony.
“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 of the wedding, because I think she was scared of the idea of celebrity.”
But Kanye being Kanye, said all of that work was worth it, as the wedding kiss photo became the most liked photo on Instagram to date.
“Now, can you imagine telling someone who just wants to Instagram a photo, the No. 1 person on Instagram, that we need to work on the color of the flowered wall? But the fact that the No. 1 most liked photo has this certain aesthetic on it was a win for what the mission is — of raising the palette.”
Well, at least we know what they were up to when they weren’t spotted out in Portlaoise!
