"Take this family photo of my husband's family for example, there are many elders in the picture, and there may never be a chance to take such a picture again," Ms. Wang said to the agent of the wedding company holding a blurred photograph captured by a photographic video in court.
"Take this family photo of my husband's family for example, there are many elders in the picture, and there may never be a chance to take such a picture again," Ms. Wang said to the agent of the wedding company holding a blurred photograph captured by a photographic video in court. Due to the late arrival of the entrusted photographer of the wedding company and the loss of the original wedding photographs, Ms. Wang was angry and sued the wedding company to the court. Yesterday, under the auspices of the People's Court of Fengtai District, Beijing, the plaintiffs and defendants reached a mediation agreement.
Ms. Wang sued that on July 9, 2009, she signed a marriage service contract with a Beijing wedding company and agreed that the company's theme wedding hall would provide a series of wedding services for her. Ms. Wang paid the contract in full the day before the wedding. Due to the late arrival of photographers from the defendant's company on the wedding day, the video lacks the important scenes such as the groom's preparation for receiving relatives, the bridal car tied by relatives and friends, the fireworks, the wedding car departure and so on. On November 5, the plaintiff received the wedding video and photo disc, and found that the photography quality was rough, the characters were blurred and the picture was distorted. Some of the characters in the group photo were out of shape and could not be recognized. Back to the defendant to repair the film, there is no change, the defendant said that there is no possibility of any repair. After many communications and negotiations with the defendant, it is known that the photograph is actually a video screenshot, and the original photograph has been lost due to the photographer's mistake.
Ms. Wang believes that wedding photos are special memorabilia with symbolic personality. They not only record the happy beginning of marriage, but also record the blessings of many relatives and friends. Life and history are of great significance. The acts of the defendant company caused irreparable material and spiritual losses to the couple and their families and friends. Therefore, Ms. Wang sued the wedding company to the court and asked the court to order the defendant to breach the contract, return the photography fee and the photography fee to each 1000 yuan, pay compensation for mental damage to 30,000 yuan, and publicly apologize for 30 days on the front page of the defendant's website.
During the court hearing, the defendant admitted that the company photographer was late and lost the original photograph of Ms. Wang's wedding. The defendant's company said that in another wedding, a laptop computer storing the plaintiff's photographs was stolen, and the company had reported the case, but no results have been obtained. The company said it was willing to refund the cost of photography and photography, but the plaintiff demanded too much compensation for mental damage.
"Wedding is a very important event in everyone's life. It's very important for anyone to record the photos of this moment. Whatever the reason, your company didn't keep the background of the wedding photos well and fooled us with the photos captured by the camera. That's your mistake. We don't lack this money, but we have to say that. During the trial, Ms. Wang said excitedly.
Under the chairmanship of the court, the plaintiff reached a mediation agreement based on the principle of mutual understanding and compromise. The wedding company returned Ms. Wang's photography and camera fees, paid 8,000 yuan compensation for mental damage, and apologized in writing.
