Imagine having your dream wedding, but then losing all the precious memories captured in photos because you didn't pay the photographer! 😱 That's exactly what happened to one bride when her cousin, a semi-professional photographer, agreed to take pictures at her wedding for just under $1,000. When the bride failed to pay up and ignored the photographer's requests for payment, the photographer decided to delete the photos. Now, the family is in turmoil, and the internet is divided over who's in the wrong. 🤔💔

Lost Memories: Who's to Blame? 🤷

So, here's the dilemma: a semi-pro photographer agrees to capture his cousin's wedding for just under $1,000, but when the bride doesn't pay up and ignores his requests for payment, he deletes the photos. He did, however, send her 20 remaining photos for free. Now, the family is in chaos, with the bride slandering him online and their mothers no longer speaking. The photographer feels bad but believes he wasn't in the wrong given the circumstances. What do you think? Was it fair to delete the photos, or should he have been more understanding? 🤔💔 Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation...

NTA - Cousin didn't pay, OP deleted photos. Lesson learned.
