Kansas City police say a happy couple’s special day has a sting of disappointment after their wedding photos were stolen from their photographer.

On May 14, police say Blakely Swanson Clement married her high school sweetheart at Our Lady of Sorrows Church followed by a reception in the West Bottoms.

KCPD say hours later, a criminal would steal away a MacBook and memory card containing the newlywed’s wedding photos.

Clement’s wedding photographer, is from Saint Louis and was in town for the wedding, scheduled a sunrise shoot with a different couple at Loose Park the following morning.

While the photographer was taking pictures, someone broke into the photographer’s vehicle and stole a MacBook and memory card containing the images of Swanson Clement’s wedding.

“I wanted to live in the moment and put my phone away that day,” Swanson Clement explains. “I was never thinking I needed to make sure I had photos of me and my parents.”

The couple only has a few cell phone images that friends and family randomly snapped.

Swanson Clement and her husband are not alone. Metro Division’s Property Crimes Section reports the images from a second wedding were also on the stolen MacBook.
