The watermarked images indicate that they didn't pay for the images, and apparently the watermark doesn't bother them.  However, as a thinking person (minority, these days), I wouldn't attend whatever function or buy whatever they're selling because if they'll steal from the stock site and the photographer, they'll do that or worse to you and me.  Displaying stolen images like that only serves to broadcast their lack of character and integrity, and their stupidity.  So since they're not likely to accomplish anything significant and become a major player, buying lots of images, I think it would be a waste of valuable time and resources to pursue any kind of action against them.  On the other hand, the owners of the images might be doing the culprit a favor by teaching him that theft is wrong and choices carry consequences (or benefits).  Too many people don't understand that these days.

but just keep in mind, that these pics have been used for event flyers and posters.

Funny, I've found a few this week on FB in people's galleries.

They did give me credit but the images were medium size and the worst part was the "DOWNLOAD" button underneath.
Even visitors that aren't logged in could download it this way.

Thank god that FB is really quick in removing that content. No problems whatsoever.
