Wedding photographer hits back with million dollar lawsuit

By , April 20, 2015 4:00 pm

Well, the story is still going on. Earlier there were reports about the newlyweds who were suing their photographer regarding their wedding album cover.

Now things have changed a lot. The wedding photographer is now hitting them back with a suit of her own against the pairs for all the damages linked with defamation of reputation and character for upwards of US$ 1000000.

For a short refresher, the newly married Moldovans said that their wedding photographer, Andrea Polito, based in Dallas, was holding their wedding snaps as hostage till they paid for a marriage album cover that was not in their deal.

The Moldovans reached Polito just a few months following their wedding to order the marriage album that was included in their deal as a “40 page 8.5×12 storybook album with up to 80 images.” Polito said them that they required to first select a cover for the album that would start at US$ 125 and would be outside their US$ 6000 deal that is already paid to Polito. Several increasingly heated mails later led them to lawsuit No 1, now Polito is hitting back with all guns blazing and a lawsuit that could cost the Moldovans somewhere between US$ 200000 and US$ 1000000.

As a reply to the primary January lawsuit against Polito, she posted an “Open Letter” on her own blog where she defines her commitment as “missing your own brothers wedding for the wedding of a couple you had already committed to photograph” and also added “having a miscarriage at 6 months on a Thursday, and persevering to show up at a wedding two days later because, regardless of what was going on in my life, this day was about someone elses happiness.”
