Face of the Day


Tauranga newlyweds Michael and Katie Julian have been left devastated after finding out burglars stole their wedding photos after breaking into their photographer’s home.

The Julians were excited to see their wedding photos after they flew home yesterday from their honeymoon in Tahiti.

But when photographer Brett Morrison called and told them the memory card in the camera the 700 wedding photos were stored on had been stolen from his Papamoa home, along with his late wife’s jewellery, they were gutted.

“[The photos] are irreplaceable memories, we can’t get them back,” Mr Julian said.

It had been a tough year for the Julians. Mrs Julian’s mother passed away in late May, but not before the couple was able to hold a small wedding service by her hospital bedside.

“This was the big wedding to share with friends and family to make the year happier, and it is just so heartbreaking that we have lost the physical copies of those memories,” Mr Julian said.

I think they are quite nice not to rip the photographer a new one.  But to be honest, any pro photographer that leaves the originals on a memory card and doesn’t immediately make secure copies at the first opportunity is not someone I’d hire again.
