About Us

Who we are & how we do what we do and do it well.

James Anderson II

Lead Photographer | Father | Husband | Chief Problem Solver

Fueled by coffee, protein shakes (sometimes I even mix the two), a vast love of music from 80's & 90's rap (thank you Mom) to obscure punk, alternative (thank you Dad), emo and metal bands and everything in between. When I dive head first into a project I don't stop or quit until I'm satisfied. Just ask my wife. It’s one of my more annoying traits.


I believe that every story is unique and should be documented as such. I strive to capture the genuine raw emotions that unfold on your wedding day, family shoot or special event. As your photographer, I focus on creating a comfortable and enjoyable experience, I crack terrible dad jokes, will say anything to make you smile or shake your head while you laugh at me which of course allows you to be yourselves in front of the camera. I blend documentary-style candid shots with carefully composed portraits to deliver a comprehensive visual narrative that reflects the essence of your love.

Life Beyond Photography: In my off time, you'll find me raising my beautiful family, coaching little league soccer, screaming at the TV when professional soccer matches are on, taking pictures of bands on stage and enjoying a round of golf with my son. These experiences enrich my understanding of the importance of family and connection, which I bring into my work as a photographer.

Let's Connect: I am based in Moncks Corner, SC, but am always ready to travel to capture love stories in new and exciting locations. I would love to chat with you about your vision for your wedding day and how we can work together to create stunning memories that will last a lifetime.

​Thank you for considering me as your wedding photographer. I can't wait to be a part of your story..

Kaline Beeles

Senior Photographer | Mother | Social Media Guru

The master of decorations, props, non for profit work, macro photography & natural light photos. Kaline brings years of experience behind the lens with a keen eye for macro details as well as the ability to pull together a shoot with little no time or information and still pull magic out of her bag of tricks. We believe this super power comes from her being a mother of 4 children with an innate ability to go and go without rest.
