I’m a wedding photographer and was left mortified after I missed a major photoshop fail & sent it to my client

A WEDDING photographer was left red-faced when she realised she’d accidentally transformed a blushing bride into a “demon” – after mistakenly plastering a SECOND MOUTH onto her face.

Dedicated Tanya Volt was arranging some previews of the dreamy shoot for the happy couple to enjoy at the end of a busy day of wedding festivities.

Exhausted Tanya looked over the snaps after a long day shooting and, believing she’d only made subtle colour-correction edits, fired them off to the happy couple.

It was only when tickled newlywed Julia Oliver emailed the next day pointing out the mouth mishap that Tanya spotted her mistake.

In a video recounting the error, the 30-year-old photographer shared the photo where Julia has a second set of gnashers peeping out of her chin, like a Xenomorph from hit movie franchise Alien.

Although she was mortified at the time, Tanya says it’s taught her a valuable lesson – to check her work more thoroughly before sending snaps out to clients.

The wedding between Julia and hubby Brett Oliver took place in Perth, Australia in March 2018 as part of a small intimate backyard ceremony.

Tanya, from Sydney, Australia, said: “This was a back garden wedding, it was quite sweet.

“This was by the beach in Perth. They kept it really intimate with their family, they had beautiful vows, it was a really beautiful day.

“I was using Adobe Lightroom to edit the photos. I was editing multiple photos at once and I synced edits across to send the bride and groom a preview.

“I wanted to sync the colour corrections to bring out the yellows of the sunset.

“What I would normally do is I would uncheck the box that says ‘spot removal’ so edits wouldn’t be synced up over all the other photos.

“I was really tired. Wedding photographers work a really long day and I was just wanting to give them some sneak peeks at the end of the night.

“But maybe I should have slept, gotten up, had a coffee and sent them over in the morning as I would have been more awake.

“I didn’t properly check the photo and sent it over. I got a response from the bride saying ‘Love the photos! By the way, I think you might have made an editing slip-up – I’ve got a few extra mouths.’

“There were laughing emojis too so she found it funny.

“When I saw the extra mouth, the only thing it reminded me of was perhaps a demon or maybe a Xenomorph from Alien, with its extra mouth.”

Although she was mortified at the time, Tanya has taken lessons from the mishap and learned to laugh at it.

Tanya said: “I was very embarrassed, I was cringing.

“Looking back at it, it’s not as bad as I remember it. I think I’d been cringing so hard I imagined a few more mouths on her.

“She had a good laugh at it, and it was very easy to fix. They got their gallery back with all the anatomically correct number of body parts.

“From then on, I’ve been double checking photos so I won’t do that again.”

Bride Julia, now 30, says her and Brett, 42, found the blunder ‘hilarious’ when they first saw it.

Julia said: “At first I thought I just thought ‘there’s something not quite right about this photo’ and then I saw it, my smile on my chin.

“It was hilarious. I had a good chuckle with my husband and politely asked Tanya if there was any way to fix it.

“Of course she did and sent the photos back straight away with my second smile removed.”
