Runaway Wedding Photographer



Getting married and hiring a wedding photographer? It might not be the bride you have to worry about getting cold feet! DON'T FALL FOR THIS SCAMMING RUNAWAY PHOTOGRAPHER! Special thanks to Nichole for making our listeners aware.


Nichole got in touch with The Steve Warneke Show to report that she had been scammed out of not only $925, but also the precious photos of her and her husband Jake's beautiful wedding day on North Captiva Island in February of 2019.


A year later April Mersinger Photography still has not given Nichole her wedding photos. After several months of excuses, the bride's sister in law, Miranda took to social media to warn other women from falling to this scam, leaving a scathing review.


And then it went viral. As it turns out, Nichole and Jake were not the only ones who claim to have been scammed by April Mersinger.


The Steve Warneke Show first reached out to April to come on the show and explain her side of the story, beseeching her and appealing to her good nature to make it right.


But we could only message her through Facebook on her personal profile.




If you research April Mersinger Photography, you find the following:


1. Poor Google Rating:


2. Broken Website Link:


3. Five Complaints Filed With the Better Business Bureau, With Whom She Is Not Accredited:


4. Disconnected Business Phone and Facebook Page:

#239-603-2691


Unfortunately, it doesn't look like Nichole and Jake are going to get any more than the few photos they have from the cellphones of their guests, and a couple of shots April had originally sent as a preview.


In fact, during their last communication, April reportedly demanded even more money for Nichole to finally be given, more than a year later, all of the photos from her big day.


"We've tried everything to reach her..."
