Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne.

A judge has awarded a British couple nearly $1,000 for the ruined memories of the happiest day of their life. For their 2009 wedding, Martin and Heidi Shubrook hired a photographer who ended up recording odd angles - mostly featuring grass, feet and the shoulders of guests. He missed the bride and groom leaving the church, cutting the cake, and several toasts at the reception. The photographer's company did live up to its name - Lasting Impressions.

It's MORNING EDITION.
