BISMARCK, N.D. (KFYR) - Weeks after a Bismarck photography business closed leaving many couples scrambling to find a someone to cover their events, we’re happy to update you that most couples found replacement photographers.

It’s wedding day for Bismarck couple Nick and Tia Jones.

They’re one of hundreds of couples who scrambled to find another photographer in the wake of the sudden Glasser Images closing. After they were told they wouldn’t have someone to capture their wedding, they reached out for help on social.

“Ok, look right here,” said their photographer Cabel Noteboom.

They met Cabel and his wife Kam. Both photographers are from Montana. They said the news was shocking and wanted to help.

“I was like: ‘Okay, let’s do this.’ We just happen to have the only weekend in October that we had available,” said Noteboom.

Although the couple is hoping to get back the thousands of dollars they spent with Glasser, it didn’t overshadow their big day.

“All of our friends and family and to have everyone come together and [Nick] especially. To have our special day together and just have everyone come together, it’s been amazing,” said newlyweds Tia and Nick Jones.

“You may kiss your bride,” said the Officate.

Tim O’Keeffe, Glasser’s Attorney said at a press conference earlier this week that subcontractors have permission to give clients images for projects that were not edited yet, so they will not be held under the former copyright. He added they’re not focusing on refunding clients who booked events in the future for now.
