It’s that age-old tale: photographer shoots wedding, photographer goes sightseeing in the mountains the following day, photographer loses SD card case. An appeal has now been launched to recover the SD case, after a newlywed couple were left without any images from their big day.
As per Contact7, photographer Lenzi Holmes was tasked with the responsibility of shooting her best friend’s wedding in Berthoud, Colorado, last Friday. Holmes placed all of the SD cards she used to shoot the wedding into a specific carrying case.
Holmes spent the next day sightseeing in the mountains, stopping at various places, including Target, McDonalds, and local parks.
It was upon arriving at Denver International Airport, where she was to fly home to Texas, that she made the grim discovery that the carry case was missing.
Holmes has since turned to her Facebook page and the local media for help in recovering the images. In an additional post, she criticized the Hilton hotel in which she stayed, claiming they weren’t very helpful. She says the hotel refused her entry to the room as new guests were already inside.
Bride Kacie was quoted by the news channel as saying:
I told [Holmes] I loved her. I love her and who she is and I wouldn’t want anyone else there on my day. We have one beautiful shot that we will keep forever, and if we cherish that one, we cherish that one… and it’s OK.
Holmes is offering $1,500 to anyone who can help.
