A recently divorced man is suing the company that he hired to photograph and record his wedding, demanding a refund for the services as well as an additional sum to recreate the original wedding.
Todd J. Remis has filed suit against H&H Photographers for failing to shoot the final 15 minutes of his 2003 wedding to his now ex-wife Milena Grzibovska, including the celebration's last dance and the bride's bouquet toss. Remis has pursued legal action against the company for a refund of the original $4,100 paid for the service, and $48,000 to recreate the wedding with a different photographer, reported NBC New York.
Remis and Grzibovska were legally separated in 2008 and officaly divorced in 2010. Grzibovska has returned to her home country of Latvia since the separation, reported the New York Times. Remis intends to fly Grzibovska back to America for the recreation of the wedding.
Remis complaints stated in the lawsuit included not only the missing final 15 minutes of the wedding, but also "unacceptable" photos in aspects of color, lighting, poses and positioning. Remis was also under the impression that the video recording of the wedding would be of the entire six hours of the wedding, while the actual video was only two hours in length.
Justice Doris Ling-Cohan from the State Supreme Court of Manhattan assessed the case, allowing the lawsuit to continue as a violation of Remis' original contract with the company.
