Unhappy Groom Sues Photographer — Wants to Restage the Wedding

Now we’ve heard everything.  Everybody knows that wedding pictures don’t always turn out very good, and most everybody who has had that happen just writes it off to experience and moves on.  But not this guy.  Oh no.

New Yorker Todd Remis has filed a lawsuit against the wedding photographer, alleging, among other things, that the photographers missed the last dance and the bouquet toss.

Remis didn’t like much of anything about the wedding photo package.  He complained about the photos’ color, lighting, poses and positioning.  He also claimed a video, which he expected to record the entire six hour wedding, was only two hours long. He’s demanding a full refund of the $4,100 he paid up front.

But wait. There’s more.

Remis also wants to recreate the entire wedding, and fly all the principals to New York so it can be re-shot by another photographer — all at a total estimated cost of $48,000 dollars.

That last demand might be a problem.  Remis and his bride are now divorced, and she’s moved back to her native Latvia.  He doesn’t know where she lives.  and her family and friends want nothing to do with him.

The photographer and his lawyer both say this lawsuit is a ridiculous abuse of the legal system, but a New York judge has ruled it can proceed, to determine if there was a breach of contract.

The judge was mildly amused by this lawsuit.  Quoting lyrics from the song “The Way We Were,” the judge wrote “…it appears that the ‘misty watercolor memories’ and the ‘scattered pictures of the smiles … left behind’ at the wedding were more important than the real thing.”

She added “Although the marriage did not last, plaintiff’s fury over the quality of the photographs and video continued on.”

And we thought people like George Costanza of Seinfeld were just figments of a writer’s imagination.  There really ARE people like him.
