I am having the same problem. I thought he was just taking his time with getting my pictures to me but all the numbers we try are disconnected! We should all get together and try and figure out something we can do!!

his wife (the one who handled all the business) committed suicide Christmas of 2007...needless to say, Bruce fell apart... not sure what recourse there is but at least you know the reason now.

We were married in Feb. 2007, 2 months after the death of his wife. He was very late for the wedding and only showed after we called SEVERAL times. If he felt he could not have continued with all his jobs he should have let us know ahead of time. We NEVER received our wedding pictures from that night. And like all of you we have called, gone to his house, filed the BBB complaint, etc. My heart goes out to him for his loss but now we all have lost a very special memory in our lives also.

My husband I got married in 2006. About 6 months after the wedding I tried contacting Bruce about our pictures. I also got no response. My parents knocked on his door, left notes on his car, and heard nothing back. After months of frustration, we filed a complaint with the small claims court. Bruce was served papers, and about a week later a lady called me saying she was helping Bruce out because of his situation. She was very nice and apologized on his behalf. She promised me I would have my pictures. Sure enough, about 2 weeks later, the courts called and my pictures had been delivered. I know it sounds extreme, but it worked. Hope this helps!

Tell me how to file the claim in small claims court. My daughter got married in November 06 and we have been going thru the same thing. Can you give me the steps? Did he actually print all of the pictures that you order? Or did he just send the copy of them. I would appreciate any help. Thanks Cathy

Wow thats awesome that you got your pictures! I also got married in 2006 and still haven't received any pictures. How did you go about filing in small claims court? How long did you wait before you filed the complaint? I hope it will still work for us! We will definitely do the same! Thank you soo much!

Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. My dad contacted the Justice of the Peace in St. John, since that is where Bruce was living at the time.(Not sure where he lives now?) He met with him to discuss the situation, and shortly after that Bruce was served with judgement papers. We had to pay the Justice a fee, but Bruce is supposed to reimburse that cost. If I remember correctly, I asked for extra pictures to cover the cost..which I got. Cathy-the pictures were actual prints. Once the judgement papers are served, I believe Bruce has a small window of time to comply or legal actions against him are taken. Hope this helps. Let me know if you need anything else!

Thanks so much for your help. I assume he still lives in the same place. How long ago did you do this if you don't mind me asking?

Our wedding was the summer of 2006 and I think we sent the legal papers in the spring of 2007. I started contacting him in Feb. of 2007, that's when I realized what was going on..so a few months after that was when we got serious about getting the pictures.

im glad to see some one got their memories now i have some hope!!!!!!!!!! my wife and i were sympathetic for him beacuse of his loss of sara but i could care less now you see we have contacted him and a lady called us back then we couldnt reach him anymore to pick out the pictures. all my wife wanted was her wedding pictures since then we had a beautiful baby girl and 2 days after we found out my wife had leukemia she fought for 5 months after she was diagnosed. now i know of a way to possibally get our memories just so aggravating to get them after my wife passed.

Bruce stole $350 from me in a photography transaction (probably needed the money to cover the judgment fees against him). He lives in LaPlace. He rides his motorcycle around most days and has a hairy beard now - perhaps hiding his identity from most folks. He is a scumbag for his actions and he has no excuses for stealing people's memories, pictures, money, and friendships. God help him, cuz no one else gives a damn.

So you did finally get your pictures? When did you get them and where did you file your papers?

My husband and I got married December 2006 Three weeks before Sarah passed. Bruce called and told me what happened and then after a few months we got together went over things picked out pictures. Then he just disappeared.

We have been to his house more than a dozen times and different times of the day. I have sent emails(now they get returned), I even tracked down his IN-LAWS, I have left notes, sent certified mail and NOTHING. The last few times I stopped there...the WINDOWS WERE BOARDED UP and I could hear Jingles his dog inside barking.

The only pictures I have are a few (20 maybe) between 2 or 3 friends that took some. And for my anniversary last year, my husband had them framed. I was depressed and cried that it was all I had but happy my husband thought to do that. This has been one of the most upsetting things I have had to try and accept. But I am so glad you got yours! I HAVE HOPE NOW!!!

PLEASE LET ME KNOW SOME DETAILS if you dont mind. My email is vlc1618@yahoo.com (Put BRUCE LEBLANC in the subject line) If you decide to contact me. THANKS!!!!
