A wedding photographer has been accused of stealing wedding photos from a wedding party, and even making them up as they went along.
The images were allegedly taken from a camera, a smartphone, and then taken back, without the wedding photographer’s knowledge.
The bride’s father has filed a complaint with the police in New South Wales, after he said he received a number of photos with incorrect title.
“I got the wrong picture and then I went to get another picture of the bride and I didn’t see the bride,” the father said.
“My first thought was that she’s got a cold and I thought she was not dressed properly, but when I got another photo I thought ‘that’s not right, she’s not wearing shoes’.”
I looked and she was wearing shoes and I said ‘what are you doing?'””
And they said ‘well, you’re doing a good job with the photos’.
“That was a little bit of an odd statement, but the bride was wearing a dress and she looked good.”
The father said the bride’s mother then called him to complain.
“She said ‘they’re not going to be able to find me, they’re going to contact your son’.”
She was just so upset and I just thought ‘well they’ve done their job, they’ve got it right’.””
I didn’t realise that they’d taken that photo of her because they didn’t take it back to the photographer.
“He said the wedding party was told to return the photos to the bride.
But the photographer, who is in his early 20s, has not been charged.”
If they’d looked for my wife they would have found her,” the photographer said.
The family said the family did not know how the images were taken, but said it was very upsetting.”
The parents are absolutely horrified, they are very upset, they don’t want the wedding to go ahead.””
And then they’d put them on Facebook and they would post them to Facebook and it was like ‘oh no we’ve taken that wrong picture’.”
“The parents are absolutely horrified, they are very upset, they don’t want the wedding to go ahead.”
We’ve had to sell our house and our daughter and we’re looking for work.
“The wedding party said they were still investigating the matter.
