Yes you can institute a case against the photographer for deficiency in service before the Consumer Court or even file a civil recovery. It is pertinent to mention that you should have the receipts of placing the order for the wedding album/videography with him in order to establish your relationship followed by your claim. Criminal action can also be instituted as he has failed to deliver the property in question despite receiving monetary consideration. Cash payments might also be proved depending on the facts and circumstances of the case.


You can approach the consumer court and file a complaint against the photographer. It is good you have proof of 507 payment made by you. Consumer courts are pro consumer, and you will surely get your relief.
