CAMERON, Mo. -- The good news keeps coming for a young Cameron couple. The FOX 4 Problem Solvers helped them get back the money they paid a missing-in-action wedding photographer. After that, other Kansas City photographers came to their rescue determined to make sure this couple's wedding day is a happy one.
“I thought not again. This is happening to another couple.”
Professional photographer Alea Lovely is talking about a story she saw on FOX 4 about a young couple from Cameron who paid a photographer to shoot their wedding, only to have him close down shop and disappear with their money a few months later
“I was supposed to have an engagement shoot in the middle of September, so I went to look up their Web site and it didn't come up in the Google search.” Pauline Santos said.
That's when the bride discovered that Urbane Wedding Photography was no longer in business. When Alea Lovely heard the story, she immediately called FOX 4 Problem Solvers and offered to shoot the couple's engagement photos for free. She shoots weddings all over the world and finds it distressing how many couples get scammed.
“It’s expensive to have a wedding anyway but to be ripped off by someone who you trust who is supposed to capture that day is really disheartening,” Lovely said.
And that's not all. Professional videographer Ron Rugen had offered to shoot the couple's wedding video for free. Two great professionals; one very happy couple.
Woman gets on the road again
Remember this story? The elderly woman who never got the title to the car a man sold her nearly a year ago and now she's stuck with a car she can't legally drive?
“I need to get around to my doctor's appointment and I need to go grocery shopping,” Ujunia Russell said.
When Mike Lane of the Auto Donation Center heard about the problem, he helped track down the owner and fix the registration so the car could be titled in the new owner's name. FOX 4 Problem Solvers were there when Lane delivered the new title to Russell.
“I'm happy to say that we have the title,” Lane said.
“Oh, thank God,” Russell replied.
Lane even helped Mrs. Russell fill out the paperwork she needs to finally get her car licensed.
