NEW YORK, NY -- One unhappy divorcé filed a lawsuit against a wedding photographer and a photography company, hoping to re-enact his wedding from eight years ago and capture the moments missed by the original wedding photographer, according to court documents.
Todd J. Remis is suing for a reimbursement of the $4,100 he paid for the photographs, as well as $48,000 in travel and accommodation costs, to reunite the entire wedding party, including his ex-wife, and restage the event.
Daniel Fried, co-owner of H&H Photographers, said, "I've speculated so many times about why he's going to such an extent to sue us. Doesn't seem logical." According to court documents, Todd Remis claims the wedding photographer missed key moments of the wedding, including the last dance and the bouquet toss.
However, according to the deposition, Todd Remis was unable to recall who caught the bouquet or what song was played during the last dance. The exact whereabouts of his ex-wife, Melina, are unknown, though she is said to have returned to her native Latvia.
Justice Doris Ling-Cohan of the New York state Supreme Court has allowed the case to proceed despite throwing out a majority of it, including a charge of infliction of emotional distress.
Todd Remis filed the lawsuit against Daniel Fried and H&H Photographers in 2009, and the couple's divorce was finalized in 2010. The suit does not threaten H&H's 65-year business. Still, Daniel Fried says, "This case is taking away time and energy from what we do best. This lawsuit is an absolute abuse of the legal system."
The wedding was eight years ago, ended in divorce and Todd Remis doesn't even know the whereabouts of his ex-wife, so do you think that wedding photographer Daniel Fried should be responsible for paying back the full costs of wedding photography over a couple missed moments not photographed? Do you think that the wedding photography company should have to pay for an investigator to find the ex-wife of Todd Remis and pay for the travel and accommodation expenses and for the wedding to be recreated after their marriage has already ended in divorce?
