Minnesota newlyweds beg for return of stolen wedding photos

A pair of Minnesota newlyweds are pleading for the return of their photographer's stolen SD card that contains their wedding photos, FOX 9 reports.

Erin and Justin Voss are scrambling for help after a thief stole their photographer's purse, which contained a white SD card with about 2,000 photos on it. Apart from a few images taken and edited before the wedding, the Voss', who both teach in Forest Lake, now only have pictures from a photo booth after ceremony.

The photographer, Holly Peterson, tells FOX 9 that she was at The Lodge in Robbinsdale Jan. 31 celebrating her mother's 50th birthday party when her purse was stolen – along with the Voss' memories from their wedding two weeks before.

Peterson says she doesn't care about the purse or wallet, and only wants the card back. Erin and Justin Voss, meanwhile, don't blame the photographer for what happened, and are turning to Facebook, Craiglist and other means in hopes of recovering the memory card.

FOX 9 talked with a pair of wedding planners about the theft, who suggested couples ask their photographers how quickly their wedding photos will be backed up to prevent an incident like the Voss' from happening to them.

Erin and Justin Voss aren't the only people who've had memories of their wedding damaged by thieves.

Two people posing as an invited couple at Jesse and Jillian Goembel's July 6 wedding reception at the Edinburgh Golf Course in Brooklyn Park made off a gift box containing gift cards and cash worth roughly $1,500, WCCO reports.

FOX 9 says images of the thieves were captured on surveillance video.

The suspects, Derrick Duane Manson, 41, and Sara Rose Lindstrom, 30, were eventually arrested and charged with felony theft in connection with the incident, WCCO said.

Manson, Lindstrom and a third person, Aaron Ray Martin, 40, were also charged in connection with the theft of a gift box that contained a total of $7,455 in checks, cash and gift cards from a wedding reception July 20 at the Majestic Oaks Golf Club in Ham Lake.

Manson pleaded guilty and was sentenced to one year and five months in prison in December.
