Photographer makes blunder with wrong shot

Ever had one of those days where you realized you just made a monumentally terrifying mistake?

If so, then you will be able to sympathise with US photographer Jacob Peters.

The Arkansas-based professional was hired to take a snap of the precious moment when a man gets down on one knee and asks the woman of his dreams to spend the rest of her life with him.

But in a massive case of mistaken identity, Mr Peters took a photo of the wrong couple.

Mr Peters, who was secretly hired by the husband-to-be, arrived at Hawksbill Crag at the allotted time - a 6am (US time) shoot with the sun rising over the hills - and waited for the couple to arrive.

The 'couple' eventually arrived 17 minutes later, the man pulled out the ring, the woman wept and said "I do" and Mr Peters took the picture.

A job well done. Or so Mr Peters thought because when he sent a congratulatory text to the man, he quickly realised the blunder.

"(I sent) the guy a text saying congratulations, the photos are beautiful," Mr Peters wrote on Facebook.

"I wake up to a text saying 'I'm confused, we never saw you and we got there a little late, are you sure it was us? I was in a blue plaid shirt'."

But using the power of social media, Mr Peters was able to track down the mystery couple and surprise them with photos of their happy moment.
