About MCG: better together

Two creatives who met in the darkroom. The husband and wife team met in 2001 while studying at Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, CA. Corrie and James' evolving work became the marriage of MCG Photography when they relocated to Charleston, SC in 2004.

We pair our simple, authentic photography with your sense of style and personality. We hope our work translates emotion and triggers memories.

We aspire to create beautiful images that convey moments, relationships, time… those things that make each situation unique. And enjoy the journey along the way.

Smile. Laugh. Love

ABOUT Corrie : Horse-loving, dance-happy, bookish-introvert.

Fill me up’s: teaching Nia (dance & movement), volunteering with LEAP,  one-on-one time with loved ones, swimming and floating, quiet time, trail rides.

Naughty pleasures: Romance novels. Fried pickles

Grab me words: Wellness, connection, energy, kindness, grace, true

Why Photography: It is a good fit. It gives me a jolt to participate in our clients feeling good in their skin or helping create a relaxed environment for the moments to unfold. It gives my inner introvert space to breathe as 30% of our work is creatively engaged with others and the rest is behind the scenes at my pace and timing.

James: Earth-loving artist

Fill me up’s: New Experiences. Add a dash of travel + family, friends, reading, swimming, outdoors’ing, yard’ening, learning, beaching...

Naughty pleasures: Hooky. Eating out.

Grab me words: Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness

Why Photography: Art. Life. Love at a fraction of a second. And if an image is worth a thousand words then I average around 50,000,000 words each year with a camera as my voice. Much to be said for the beauty around us.
