Design Aglow's Wedding Week 2015: Meet Geoff Duncan

Tell us a little about yourself, where you live and how you got started in photography.
I live in Austin, TX and first picked up a camera when I was in college on a trip to Ethiopia in the summer of 2008. There was something about capturing a moment in time that just wouldn't let me go. Up until that point I had been an aspiring musician, so I started shooting my friends and live music until eventually I began shooting weddings.



How do you describe your style?
It's hard to describe my style, but my goal has always been to produce creative and timeless images for my clients.



What or who really inspires you?
I watch a lot of movies in the theater, and my favorite director is Wes Anderson. I try to surround myself with other creatives outside of the wedding world in order to draw inspiration from other industries.



What are your top 3 tips for photographing weddings?
My top 3 tips for photographing weddings:
1) Connect with your clients on a personal level to help draw out their personalities in the photographs.
2) Anticipate moments before they happen.
3) Treat each wedding as if it's the only wedding you will shoot all year.
