A source close to the situation explained:
Kim Kardashian & Kanye West’s 1st Wedding Photo Took How Many DAYS To Edit Before It Was Instagram Ready?! Who's To Blame For The Delay?
Getting married is sort of old hat for Kim Kardashian. The girl’s gotten hitched three times already!
But for her now hubby Kanye West, this was his first time walking down the aisle and he wanted his wedding to be PERFECT!
Which is why before the world could get a glimpse of their special day on Kim’s Instagram, the 37-year-old groom made sure their first wedding photo (officially called The Kiss) underwent FOUR DAYS of touch ups so that it could look just right!
Wow. Talk about being a perfectionist!
But the reason Kanye had to take his time touching up his wedding pics is because famed photographer Annie Leibovitz BAILED on shooting the happy couple at the last minute!
What the WHAT?!?
"I’ll tell you a little story about the Kiss photo that my girl put up. 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 because Annie pulled out, I was like 'I still want my wedding photos to look like Annie Leibovitz’s photos' and we sat there and worked on that photo for four days – because the flowers were off-colour and stuff like that."
You couldn’t just use a filter for that?
The photo has since been liked by nearly 2.5 million on Insta - the most liked photo on the site of all time!
So…we guess all of that Photoshopping was worth it!
