No, it is clear that there are two photos.  I am just questioning why
Charlie only mentions sending one photo.

Indeed; but then, as I asked in an earlier post, how can the tall man in the
photo be Tom?

Since there is *no* evidence for the second man in the photo being Den, I'll
just say that the idea of Den caring enough about his supposed daughter to
"check out" the carnival, and then deciding that the carnival is a suitable
place for her, is even more implausible then the rest of your theory.  And
if the picture is of Tom, that would itself explain Charlie sending it; but
neither would explain Charlie not mentioning having sent it.
