Since their wedding over two months ago, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West‘s now famous wedding photo has received nearly 2.4 million likes, making it the most liked photo in the history of Instagram. The couple’s celebrity status is obviously one reason for the high profile wedding photo, but how did it get 2.4 million likes?
According to Kanye, Kim is the reason their beloved wedding pic has garnered so much unprecedented attention.
“It’s because of Kim,” West says in an amusing new interview with GQ magazine. “Meaning there’s no photo that I would have put up by myself, or next to one of my smarty friends, that would have got that amount of likes.”
According to West, the photo took 4 days to plan after famous photography Annie Leibovitz just days before Kim and Kanye’s big day.
“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. I think that she [Leibovitz] 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.”
The Kim and Kanye wedding photo has garnered plenty of attention already. Could it make it to 3 million likes?
