Couples feel left at the altar by Suffolk wedding photographer

A number of couples say they feel like they've been left at the altar by their wedding photographer after waiting years for their wedding albums

SMITHTOWN - A number of couples say they feel like they've been left at the altar by their wedding photographer after waiting years for their wedding albums and videos.

Vinny and Danielle Rella, of Smithtown, say they have been waiting more than four years for their wedding albums and videos from Suffolk-based photographer Gary Leli.

Several other couples say they have been waiting up to five years for their memories.

A videographer used by Leli, Frank Castullicci, says he's owed $10,000 by Leli and he'll edit the couples' videos as soon as he's paid what he says he's owed.

As for the missing albums, Leli claims they will be done in about a month.

However, some of the angry couples have already filed a lawsuit against Leli over the broken promises and missing wedding albums.
