Hello Sir,
Regret that you've lost one of the most important photos. Upon complaint, the Consumer forum would award compensation for mental agony caused due to deficiency of services in addition to the Fee you paid to the photographer. After Award you can even make arrangement to publish the case so as to prevent others from getting cheated by this photographer.
