Geoff Duncan stands out among wedding photographers. He is super-easy-going and fun to work with, and he has a kid-in-a-candy-store enthusiasm for his craft. Stylistically, Geoff is an artist first, documentarian second, and portraitist third. As an artist, Geoff is most passionate about good…no, amazing…lighting and unique, effective framing of his subjects. It is in these areas where Geoff’s talent is most apparent. He is a total rock-star when it comes to finding interesting places for you to stand: the lighting will make you look (and feel!) like a celebrity, and the background will capture interest while drawing the eye towards your face. Geoff’s geometric backgrounds of choice lie somewhere between bold-Mondrian and tame-Vasarely. As a documentarian, Geoff captures moments big and small, all with artistic effect and creative framing. Ex: he took a photo of our piano player, as seen from the far end of a grand piano, where you can see only the player’s face, triangularly framed by the body and open lid of the piano. Stunning. Our collection of engagement and wedding photos contains dozens more examples of photos that make everyone say, “Wow!” because of the lighting he found and the ways he framed us. Several of the photos still bring tears to our eyes because they are so beautiful. As a portraitist, Geoff has an uncanny ability to capture the personality of people he’s never met. We had a Mr. Know-it-all at our wedding (every wedding has one, it seems), and Geoff caught him with his mouth open, pointer-finger in air, as if to begin a lecture on the importance of..you get the idea. And my shy, contemplative 13-year-old daughter was captured looking off into the distance with her chin resting gently in her hand. This photo takes my breath away. It’s great to have pictures of people as they are—and for us, too, to have visual reminders of how amazing our wedding day was and how in love we truly are! I’d never seen how much my face glows when I look at my beloved

I am very happy that we choose Geoff for our wedding in India. It was a 5 day long affair. And Geoff was there patiently navigating through thousands of people and capturing the best moments. It was a gamble for us as we were hiring someone who wasn't familiar with our tradition and not accustomed to the long weddings. In the end we are very happy that we chose to take the risk. The pictures are very unique and of the best quality. I strongly recommend Geoff to anyone looking for a wedding photographer. He is not just a highly talented photographer but an awesome person too.

Where to begin??? Geoff is the best decision we ever made for our wedding day!!!! We booked him after the very first contact and didn't even feel like we had to "explore other options". He was the one and only photographer we reached out to. Just by looking at his work (http://www.geodun.com/) we were sold, and then to top it off he turns out to have a very fun, laid-back, awesome personality. Our wedding pictures are, to this day, the most beautiful pictures we've ever seen. We still get teary eyed when we look through them and we still cannot believe those are OUR wedding pictures we are looking at because they turned out so amazing. He somehow manages to capture every single special moment and the way he plays with the lighting is out of this world. I am serious! He did our engagement session and those are beautiful as well!!!

We loved that he doesn't do the "typical poses". It never felt forced or like he was checking a list off of the "typical wedding shots". He makes every wedding/session YOU, because that's the point right? It has to be unique to each couple and he just let's you do your thing and captures REAL moments. He is all about "just be yourself and do you thing" and we absolutely LOVE that about him. He doesn't make you feel like it's his "job", because I really don't think he even feels that way himself. It's his passion to be able to capture the emotion and he wants you to be able to look back at the pics and feel all those things you were feeling in that moment all over again. And he totally nails it because when we look through them we feel like we did on our wedding day and that right there is PRICELESS. Book him! You will not regret it, I promise.

Thank you Geoff for a Cinco de Mayo we will be able to forever cherish thanks to your amazing work!!!

Geoff is so incredibly talented! He took our engagement photos in the dead of summer (in Texas, mind you) and didn't complain one bit. When we got our photos back, my husband and I were just floored. Each and every photo was so unique and beautiful. I still look at them today and get giddy! Seriously- BOOK THIS GUY! He's really the best of the best.

What can I say about Geoff!? Not enough, thats what. First of all, when I got engaged last July I had barely put the ring on my finger before I was sending an inquiry to Geoff. I had been following his photography from early on, and knew he was the guy for the job. Being a photographer myself (amateur), photography was really important to me. I decided to pick my 'top 3' when it came to the wedding and not budge AT ALL on those, everything else we could shave here and there, but not the 'top 3'! Photography was my number 1! And it should be yours too, if not at least in the top.
Our photos tell a story. A beautiful one. From beginning to end I can look through my photos from what has been the best day of my life thus far and re-live it over and over, and Geoff did that!
His work is exceptional, the color and depth he brings through the quality of his work is amazing. He just does some things I would never think of, and it always turns out great!
Aside from his amazing gift, he's really just a great guy. The wedding party was practically best friends with him at the end of the reception and he went out with us afterwards, such a blast to hang with- he also has some pretty sweet moves too, so thats a plus.
Dont look any further, Geoff is the guy to go with. You wont worry about this or that, you'll just have to remember to smile for those fancy cameras!
Team Geoff!!! [fist pump]

I'll be honest - when my husband and I set out on our mission to find a photographer for our wedding, we didn't initially send an inquiry to Geoff. We inquired with a different photographer who was already booked for our date, and sent us Geoff's way, and I'm SO glad he did! As it turned out, Geoff is probably more our style. And he is FANTASTIC.

Geoff really takes the time to get to know you and to get to know what you want in your pictures. I love his informal rule about engagement pictures, where he tries to never shoot in the same place twice - this is awesome because you're more likely to get unique shots, and different places fuel his creativity so you can get the good stuff. :)

One of my favorite things about Geoff's work is that it's not all the same. He can get those gorgeous more formal shots if you want them, but he'll also grab several candid shots that will make you laugh when you look at them, and he'll grab a few artsy shots that you can impress your friends with.

Geoff clearly knows what he's doing and has the proper equipment to pull it off - our pictures were wonderful, clear and crisp. Everything is well-lit. People looked at our pictures and could tell that we had a professional.

For my husband and me, having a good photographer was probably in the top three for most important things for our wedding day. You'll always have the memories captured in your mind of course, but it's so special to have beautiful photos you can look through and share with others.

5 stars and 2 thumbs way way up; Geoff is awesome (as are the second shooters he works with!) and deserves a million cookies. :)

We could not have asked for a better photographer to shoot our New Year's Eve wedding in Dallas. Not only is Geoff super talented, he's a lot of fun to hang out with! He made everyone involved in the wedding photos feel comfortable and was able to capture so many unique shots. You'd be silly not to hire Geoff - he is literally THE BEST!!

We could not have asked for a better service.
We flew Geoff and Rachel into NW Arkansas to do our wedding. Even being in the town for just a few hours, they were able to spot places that were understated and beautiful that I, having lived there for the majority of my life, missed.
As if being in the dress doesn't already boost your confidence like crazy, having the professionalism of this group made it just that much better. I felt so much more confident knowing how wonderful my results would be.
One notable aspect of the group is that other people pick up on how serious they are about you. We had numerous guests tell us how wonderful it was to watch the photographers because of the angles they chose and how determined they were for select shots.
Throughout this experience, we developed a friendship rather than a working relationship only and that has been a wonderful perk.

I highly recommend going with Geoff for your pictures.
The main reason I did was because I didn't only want to capture the memory, I wanted a piece of art. And I got exactly that.
