Unconventional Wedding Photos Using Eye Reflections

They say that a picture is worth a thousand words, and this saying couldn’t be more true than in the case of wedding photos. A relationship is built off of love and trust, and all of it culminates to the very special moments of a wedding. With this in mind, it’s no wonder why people spend exorbitant amounts of money on wedding photographers. This day comes once in a lifetime, so who wouldn't want the memories to be perfectly captured?

Based in Australia, Adams-Shawn has made a name for himself with his unique approach to wedding photography. A self-taught photographer, Adams-Shawn's style has become incredibly popular over the past year, and it isn't hard to see why.

The brilliant creations that have garnered so much attention are called "eyescapes." Adams-Shawn created his first eyescape in 2011, but it was not until 2014 that he would try his hand at the technique again.

"Something clicked as to how I could take them. Now I do them pretty much every wedding."


A photo like this may look as though it was edited in Photoshop, but the truth is that it was captured with a camera.

Because of the clarity and crispness of these pictures, some of his peers have questioned the authenticity of the reflections. Adams-Shawn, however, is used to the criticism. He frequently silences his critics by providing the raw image files of his shoots.

It's almost haunting to see such a detailed picture captured in someone's eye.

Many photographers have struggled to understand the technique involved with capturing detailed eyescapes. Adams-Shawn states that the process is actually quite easy when you consider how easily eyes reflect light.


The level of detail is simply astounding.

Adams-Shawn goes on to say that the biggest factor to getting a great shot is the camera’s proximity to the person's eyes.

Can you imagine a photo of yourself captured like this? I can't fathom a more stunning image of a bride on her wedding day.
