A wedding photographer was fed up when she almost ruined a couple’s photos after the big day after accidentally turning the bride into a “demon” with two mouths

After spending big bucks on hair and makeup, a fabulous dress, and a professional photographer, many couples expect their wedding photos to look incredible.

But after receiving a few preview photos, one bride was let down by her looks.

Newlywed Julia Oliver quickly emailed snapper Tanya Volt back after noticing she had transformed from a blushing bride into a “demon” in the pictures.

After a long day of wedding celebrations, Tanya wearily looked at the photos and thought she’d just done some subtle color corrections before sending them to the happy couple.

It wasn’t until her client emailed that the 30-year-old realized she had actually given Julia a second mouth in one picture, with a set of teeth sticking out of her chin – which looked very bizarre.

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

But the hilarious images have recently resurfaced online, and while Tanya was mortified at the time, she says it taught her a valuable lesson – to double-check her work before sending snaps to clients.

Tanya from Sydney, Australia said: “It was a garden wedding, it was pretty sweet.

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

“I used Adobe Lightroom to edit the photos. I edited multiple photos at once and synced edits to send bride and groom previews.

“I wanted to sync the color corrections to bring out the yellow of the sunset.”

She went on to explain, “Normally I would uncheck the ‘Blemish Removal’ checkbox so the edits don’t sync to all the other photos.

“I was really tired. Wedding photographers have a really long day and I just wanted to give them a few little insights 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 check the photo properly and sent it over. I got a reply from the bride saying, ‘I love the photos! mouths.’

“There were laughing emojis too, so she thought it was funny.

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

Although humiliated, Tanya has now learned to laugh at the mishap.

She added: “I was very embarrassed, I winced.

“Looking back, it’s not as bad as I remember. I think I winced so much that I imagined a few more mouths on her.

“She laughed a lot about it and it was very easy to fix. You got your gallery back with the anatomically correct number of body parts.

“From then on, I double-checked the photos, so I’m not going to do that again.”

Bride Julia, now 30, says she and Brett, 42, thought the bug was “hilarious” when they first saw it.

Julia said, “First I thought, I just thought there was something wrong with this photo,” and then I saw it, my smile on my chin.

“It was hilarious. I had a good laugh with my husband and politely asked Tanya if there was a way to fix the problem.

“Of course she did and immediately sent the photos back without my second smile being removed.”
