A FREELANCE photographer is devastated after thieves stole her laptop which had two couples’ wedding pictures.
Dani Seabrook, 27, was putting the finishing touches to the couple’s big days when the black Compag Presario was stolen from the boot of her black Vauxhall Astra.
Miss Seabrook works as a pizza delivery driver when she is not taking pictures, so her car could have been broken in to anywhere in Pitsea and Basildon.
She has offered the distraught couples re-shoots, but is pleading with anyone with information about her laptop to contact police.
Miss Seabrook, who set up her business just a few weeks ago, said: “Both the couples are devastated. I have offered them a re-shoot, but they can never get their wedding day back.
“If anyone knows anything, I’m begging they speak up. I’m not interested in the laptop, just the work that’s on there.”
The first wedding shoot was taken at the Old Rectory in Dunton and includes pictures of the rectory.
The second shoot includes distinctive photographs of the back of the bride’s shoes which said “mum” on the back in tribute to the bride’s late mother.
The laptop was taken from the boot of Miss Seabrook’s car sometime between 6pm on Saturday, and 9pm on Monday.
It had a “Q” on the lid, a recent invoice on the home screen and contained Adobe Photoshop and Photobridge.
Miss Seabrook said: “I really just need the harddrive back.
“Even if it has been wiped, then I have a programme that can get the pictures back.
“I never usually leave my laptop in the car. I amso gutted, I just cannot believe this has happened.
“The worst thing is because I was delivering, I cannot pinpoint where I was when it was taken.”
Anyone with information about the theft should contact Essex Police on 101.
