The job of a wedding photographer is to capture the essence of the day, providing a permanent keepsake you can always return to and remember just how you felt throughout every special moment
Peter Adams-Shawn, a self-taught Australian wedding photographer, has crafted a truly unique way to take wedding photos that look like nothing you've ever seen before. The photos you are about to see are 100% real and unaltered. In fact, the head International Loupe Awards judge personally apologized to Adams-Shawn for mistaking his work for composite images
Adams-Shawn calls his unique style of photography "eyescape," a concept he originally discovered back in 2011, when he captured a photo of a flower girl watching the bride get ready. Ever since he's spent a lot of time perfecting this art form.
Adams-Shawn shared with Techly, "The best frames I've captured have had the subject smiling. This relaxes the shot, brings natural creases in the eyes, and even this close, you can tell the subject is smiling."

Good luck trying this trick at home, especially with your smartphone. Not only do you need an excellent camera to capture enough light, but there are countless other struggles Adams-Shawn has had to learn how to work around.
"…As you can imagine, if you or the subject move a fraction of a millimetre, the focus is lost. The other challenge is making sure you're not in the shot – I find about half the time a portion of my right elbow can slip into the shot."
