Legend, 36, spoke to ET at SXSW on Saturday, revealing that the couple's recent au naturel photo shoot will appear in Dujour Magazine.
He further addressed those nude paparazzi pics that have been released from the shoot, "We were working with Bruce Weber, who's one of the greatest photographers on the planet. We wanted to do some great stuff," he said.
The "All of Me" singer added: "We don't mind showing off our bodies - we just feel like there's no problem being natural and nude when you're with the right photographer and it's done the right way. We weren't shy about it. Some lucky paparazzo [laughs] caught wind of it - but Bruce's presentation will be a lot better."
Legend admitted that he sometimes plays bodyguard for his bride Teigen, 29, but this time was different. "I think when they caught some of that stuff I was back there changing, so I wasn't able to guard her properly apparently."
