My husbands cousin offered to do our wedding photos for us as a wedding gift. They have never given us our photos and the photographers wife deleted the photos. What can we do since there was no actual written contract but an offer. If we would have not had the offer we would have paid for one. Id like for them to cover the cost for us to get photos redone including covering the cost of hair and makeup.

I'm sorry to hear that happened. Give me just a few minutes to type up some information for you, thanks!

Again, I'm so sorry to hear this happened.

Unfortunately though there is not a legal basis for cause of action here.

In other words there are no grounds for a lawsuit or any way to enforce what you've proposed.

If there had been a written contract or if you had paid for their services, then you may have had grounds for suing for a breach of contract and the damages that arose.

Unfortunately since none of those are applicable here, there isn't any basis for a court to enforce payment for taking the new photos.

I hope that helps!

Please let me know if you have any other questions. Also, please take a moment to rate me using the stars at the top of the page, as it's the only way experts are compensated for our time on the site. I do not receive a salary here at JustAnswer, and am only compensated for my time after receiving a rating of 3 stars or more (5 stars are always appreciated). The question won't close after rating, so you can still ask follow-up questions after. Thanks, ***** ***** it!

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
