Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's personal photographer

KANYE West and Kim Kardashian West have hired a personal photographer.

The couple - who tied the knot in 2014 - have taken their love of selfies to a new level by organising for a member of the paparazzi to follow them around wherever they go.

A source said: "The photographer takes thousands of shots a day, and Kanye pores over almost all of them.

"He'll point to a picture of himself standing at a desk and be like, 'This will go down in history!'"

And to ensure his wife Kim, 34, looks picture perfect at all times, the 'Bound 2' rapper helps her to pick out outfits.

The insider added to Us Weekly magazine: "Kanye will breeze into a store and immediately start pulling looks for Kim to try on.

"He likes to pose her after he's picked out her outfits. He gets completely in the zone."

Meanwhile, the 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star recently revealed her husband - with whom she has 21-month-old North - threw out most of her wardrobe when they first met.

She said: "I was obsessed with glitter, rhinestone heels and the kind of clothes I now laugh at, and he threw them all out. I said, 'Well I'm going to save them for my daughter one day.' And he said, 'Well if it's going to be our daughter, she's never going to wear those!' I think he probably thought they were a bit cheesy...

"But to my fans - they saw this new guy come in and clean out my closet and they thought it was a sign of him being controlling. But it wasn't that at all. He made me love fashion so much more now because I'm not afraid to wear different things."
