welcome to

who are we?

Ivory Grove is a small business is owned and led by a husband/wife duo.  Together, over the past couple of years, we have grown our team to include over 50 photographers, videographers, and event planners.  We shoot weddings in the Midwest and specialize in offering a photo/video team. We aim to deliver beautiful, genuine, affordable wedding media to our clients, while also providing valuable training and job opportunities to our team members.

We book 30+ weddings a month, and are always on the lookout for talented professionals with an artistic eye and client-satisfaction mindset to join our team. You can check us out at

why join our team?

We make it a priority to treat every client and team member the way we would like to be treated.   We are constantly looking for ways to make this process easy, simple, and fun.

Every year this industry gets more competitive with a stagnant number of weddings and an oversaturated market of photographers & videographers. This means it is harder to book jobs without time and money spent on marketing. One of the benefits of shooting for Ivory Grove is we handle the marketing, booking, billing, client management, and editing. You save time and money and get to do more of what you love.
