It is often said that beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. Australia-based photographer Peter Adams-Shawn has made a name for himself by capturing the mirror reflections in wedding guests’ eyes. He took his first “eyescape” in 2011 and has been taking these beautiful photos consistently since 2014.
His wedding photography work is so unbelievable that the head International Loupe Awards judge apologized to Adams for thinking his stunning pictures was a composite.
Adams-Shawn shared this tip for taking amazing wedding photos with Techly: “One other secret – the best frames I’ve captured have had the subject smiling,” writes Adams-Shawn. “This relaxes the shot, brings natural creases in their beautiful eyes, and even this close, you can tell the subject is smiling.”
