Wedding Photographers Beware

Sometimes the truth is stranger than fiction. Thanks to Chad for passing on this gem from the NY Times. A wedding photographer is being sued for missing some key shots in a wedding which occurred in 2003. From the times:

"But what is striking, said the studio that took the pictures, is that Mr. Remis’s wedding took place in 2003 and he waited six years to sue. And not only has Mr. Remis demanded to be repaid the $4,100 cost of the photography, he also wants $48,000 to recreate the entire wedding and fly the principals to New York so the celebration can be re-shot by another photographer.

Re-enacting the wedding may pose a particular challenge, the studio pointed out, because the couple divorced and the bride is believed to have moved back to her native Latvia."
