Outrageous, things like this make me fear photography
Nov 3, 2011

I've been a professional photographer for almost ten years. Nearly all of my client-relationships have been excellent. However, suits like this make me fearful of what one bad egg represents...

"Groom sues photographer, demands new wedding: In lawsuit filed six years after ceremony — and divorce — man demands $48,000 to recreate event for new pictures"

http://world-news.newsvine.com/_news/2011/11/03/8611802-groom-sues-photographer-demands-new-wedding#star12

The suit is being filed by a man over a wedding conducted six years earlier. His claim: shots missed of the bouquet toss and final dance now necessitate flying all his guests from Latvia back to New York, putting them up in hotels, and having a party... Somehow the judge is letting this through. It has cost the photography business, H & H, $50,000 in legal fees already, and the plaintiff wants more than that amount in damages. It should be noted, the groom has been out of work for three years and long-since divorced the woman he wants to "re-create" the day with. I wonder if his lawyer-father has anything to do with why this got so far at all?

Happy to share what I know. I learned a lot of it here. — Michael:.
