Woman says wedding photos held hostage

A woman, who became a widow a year after her wedding, says she doesn't even have her wedding album to look back on and she's blaming the photographer.

Coreen Cellana, of Merrick, says the photographer is holding her cherished memories hostage. Cellana says she paid $4,800 but is still waiting for the albums almost seven years later. During that time her husband Curtis passed away from cancer.

Photographer Mark Kauffman, from Angelica Studios in Port Jefferson, says he gave Cellana a great deal. He says she got more than $10,000 worth of work for $4,600 and claims she owes him a $955 balance.
