I have received a ton of submissions this weekend but this one caught my eye due to denial being strong with this one. Please forgive me for not getting to all the submissions yet – weddings are in full swing and it’s a holiday weekend! I did a bit of digging on this one but will post more at a later time.

Added in pictures from the second website along with images from her Facebook before she started deleting. She’s commenting below stating that she had permission from the photographers and it was her second shooter that did it (yet they don’t have access to her websites).

Added links to other sites of hers, some of which still have stolen images on them.

For those of you that are as confused as I am as far of the excuses/stories and who the fuck this woman is, here’s a synopsis.
Charming Photos is ran by a woman named Aries Lanna Thompson. She claims that another person works with/for her named Natasha “Tasha” Elizabeth Wile. Tasha has yet to comment on Photo Stealers. Tasha’s business, Tasha’s Crochet Creations (which also had stolen product images), has the same phone number as Charming Photos, they claim to “share” the phone. The personal Facebook profile images also appear to be the same woman. Aries claims that her and Tasha use pen names and hide their real locations to protect themselves. Aries also used to work for J-Tron Productions and owned S&E Weddings.
Regarding the use of the stolen images, Aries claims that she had permission from the photographers and/or clients to use the images (further claims of this here, here and here). Photographers and clients have emailed me and also posted stating this is not the case.
By the time I started working on this post the images had been removed but I captured a couple of statuses for you. I do have some submitted screen captures and I’ll load those up later.
Loading the screen captures!
