Livermore couple offers reward for stolen wedding pictures

LIVERMORE, Calif. (KGO) -- A Bay Area couple is desperately searching for the thief who stole the camera that contained their wedding photos.

"It was a little surreal," said Enzo Mineo. "Couldn't believe it-- just felt like a bad dream."

Mineo and Giavanna Acosta thought their wedding day would be the happiest day of their lives. But instead, they were left heartbroken.

A thief stole their wedding photos, right out of their photographer's car.

"I was a mess," Acosta said. "Bawling, crying, pretty much the whole night."

Photographer Amanda Tung feels terrible. "I want to make them happy and remember this moment and I just failed completely."

Tung and her assistant shot the intimate ceremony at San Francisco City Hall Monday.

They stopped by the Presidio on the way home to use a bathroom. They returned to their car to find the back window smashed, and $15,000 of camera equipment gone.

"I feel like the blood left my body. I froze. Because I know the equipment doesn't matter," said Tung. "It's really those memory cards."

Tung has been searching non-stop online and at flea markets. She posted flyers offering a reward.

"If anyone knows anything or recognizes us in these pictures if you could just return them. These are really valuable pictures to us and something we hoped to keep and share for the rest of our lives," said Acosta.

Everyone is holding out hope that maybe this story could have a happily ever after.
