Judge orders woman to hand over nude ‘boudoir’ photos to ex-husband: ‘Violating and incredibly embarrassing’

Utah woman Lindsay Marsh was left feeling “violated” after she was ordered by a judge to hand over an album of boudoir photographs to her ex-husband, who claims he wanted to keep them “for the memories.”

Marsh explained that she had taken the photos early into their 25-year marriage, and would write “loving” messages to her hubby in the album. But when she filed for divorce in 2021, her ex-husband, Chris Marsh requested the album as a keepsake. Judge Michael Edwards sided with Mr. Marsh but would allow Lindsay Marsh to take the photos back to the photographer to get duplicates made and edit her body, according to The Salt Lake Tribune.  The photographer refused this request, claiming that the photos were works of art and should not be adulterated.

The judge then ordered that the album of photos be taken to a third party to be altered, so they can be presented to Mr. Marsh.

“That person is to do whatever it takes to modify the pages of the pictures so that any photographs of [Lindsay Marsh] in lingerie or that sort of thing or even without clothing are obscured and taken out,” Judge Edwards wrote in his ruling. “But the words are maintained for memory’s sake.”

“It’s violating and it’s incredibly embarrassing and humiliating,” Lindsay Marsh said of her ordeal. “The only way I can hopefully protect someone else from going through the same situation is to tell my story and expose that these are the types of things that he thinks are OK.”

She had even called up the clerk to make sure that she fully understood her situation.

“I just want to clarify,” she remembered asking. “The judge has ordered me to give nude photos of my body to a third party that I don’t know without my consent?”

The photographer who was initially hesitant to alter the photos agreed to do it after discovering the judge’s ruling.

“That’s even violating,” Marsh explained. “Because these are things that were sensual and loving that I wrote to my husband that I loved. You’re my ex-husband now.”

While the pictures are being duplicated, Marsh revealed she plans to hold a party in December where she will burn the photographs. She is legally required to maintain possession of the original, unaltered photographs until the end of the year in the event that her ex-husband has any objections to any of the edits.

For his part, Chris Marsh claims that the memories associated with the photos and inscriptions on the pictures are something he wants to “preserve” and “cherish.”

“I cherish the loving memories we had for all those years as part of normal and appropriate exchanges between a husband and wife, and sought to preserve that in having the inscriptions,” he said.
