Wedded and waiting: LI bride still hasn't received photos

SMITHTOWN - A month after a Suffolk wedding photographer said he'd make good on his promise and send his customers snapshots of their big day, a Long Island bride says she's still waiting.News 12 Long Island spoke with several couples last month who said they were left at the altar by their photographer, Gary Leli. Danielle Rella, of Smithtown, says she hired Leli four years ago to document her big day but still has not seen her albums. In early January, Leli told News 12 that he'd get Rella her photos within a month, but the deadline has come and gone and Rella says she's heard nothing. Rella says the whole ordeal has been a "nightmare" with no end in sight. Some angry couples have filed a lawsuit against Leli. The Suffolk County Bureau of Consumer Affairs says it is investigating the photographer's business practices.Couples feel left at the altar by Suffolk wedding photographer
