A few years ago while attending a Jeff Newsome workshop I met Geoff Duncan for the first time.  Over the years of following his adventures, and work (and being a huge fan) we finally were able to spend some quality time together in Vegas at WPPI this year.  Quality was it ever.  Instant life friends evolved immediately.  Since then, I’ve had the pleasure of working with Geoff several times – and what a treat it is.  His passion to keep pushing forward, making new creative work, growing as a human (which you are already a badass human Geoff); his drive should/does inspire others.

This wonderful wedding in the Hilton Head Islands was shot with Geoff a few months ago.  Thank you Geoff for letting me tag along.  You can view his blog post here on the wedding.

I really can’t say enough about these guys.  From the instant I met them in Houston last year I knew we had great chemistry.  To Marette being a master designer; and Chris a Crossfit machine (and hilarious)..we hit it off instantly.  Their wedding at the Nottoway Plantation in White Castle, La was absolutely amazing.  Also, thank you so much to Melissa & Stephen – you guys made this possible.

  • So much freaking goodness here. Beautiful work Joseph!

This wedding was like a fairy tale.  Made for a princess.  I mean seriously; look through it.  You can’t disagree.

What was even more wonderful was how damn adorable Ashley & Matt were throughout the day.  From the jitters of the first look, to the emotion that their parents shared while Ashley was walking down the aisle with her father.  Thank you for letting me tell your story guys.
