They eloped so that they could having a weeding without lots of people. That means they probably didn't want an entire fleet of photographers there. And most weddings only have one photographer, but photograpers take VERY good care of the photos and try and make sure they don't lose the photos (as they'll lose all the money from the job if they lose the photos) Why do people never think before posting their insensitive, illogical comments on this site?
What do you people mean "should have not eloped"? Usually when couples elope it's for a good reason like parents who don't want them to be together. If you made a big deal out of the wedding and hired a proffesional photographer, they'd know something is up. Theres other reasons too. This is definetly an FYL. How was he to know that the camera would be stolen?
Just because the majority of people are overly materialistic snobs obsessed with keeping up with the Jones's, doesn't mean everyone else wants to spend somewhere between $15,000 and $100,000 for what is essentially a PARTY, when they can have the same party with only very close friends and family for a fraction of the cost. The friends definately didn't deserve it, but OP should've saved those photos immediately after taking them. A lot of other things could've caused the loss of those photos, such as the camera getting lost in travel or even broken.
Hahah damn... that's so not gonna happen. Photographers charge around $800-$1,000 for their services, imagine getting another one? Then you usually have to pay out the ass for prints. Don't get me wrong, I go to art school, my boyfriend's a photographer, etc., so I appreciate what photographers do... but if they're getting $1,000 for the day, there's no reason for them to profit further.
If you were the photographer at the wedding, it should have been your uttermost and foremost responsibility to get those pictures safe and store in multiple copies. Sorry for your camera, that part is FML, but the wedding pictures are YDI.
always back up if you can. but this totally fucking sucks.
