Hiya! We're Dave & Jeff,
Destination Wedding // Elopement Photographers based in Louisville, Kentucky
Two buddies that came together around six years ago with a strikingly similar passion for photography // filmmaking (while we were both personal trainers at the time) and the vision to tell captivating stories, time after time. We got hooked on weddings and there was simply no turning back for us. We truly believe there is nothing greater in this world than a powerful story. We’re not real big fans of being labeled as just “wedding photographers // videographers”, because we strive to be SO much more than that.
We want what we do to be all about the entire experience. From the day we meet, connect, laugh and get really excited for your wedding day. Throughout the planning process where everything starts to come together (trust us, we know how to make this part much more enjoyable). And ultimately, when the big day goes down and every sincere moment is documented with love. You may now be asking yourselves, “well what about our gallery and/or film?” Delivering your memories is such a pivotal component to why we do what we do, but it’s only a small fraction of what we aim to provide you with.
And once you’ve received the story of a lifetime that we’ve worked so very hard and diligently to create, we’d like to remind you right now that your journey with us doesn’t end there. We strive to stay in contact with our couples after their wedding has come and gone (because let’s face it, we love to see you grow and evolve over the years, together) and find ourselves hangin’ with so many of them still to this day. Dinner + drinks? Sporting events? Pups in the park, anyone?! We want the bond we create with you to be unbreakable, because after all, you’re spending a lot of time with us during this experience. Once your special day has come and gone, we never want you to feel like we were just another vendor at your wedding and that you were just another “client” to us. This entire experience is so much bigger than that!



A little bit about us...
believe it or not, we do more than just live behind our lenses
When not diving into the creation of another mesmerizing story…Dave is all about exploring the world, geeking out with some video games and watching Game of Thrones with his lovely girlfriend Kaela + their German Shepherd, Gunny. Jeff is an avid sports fan, band member and all about getting a good workout in at the gym. You’ll also find him spending lots of time with his girlfriend + their dog Stella, too. If you’d like to learn a little bit more about us, please head on over to our “get to know us” page located in our menu!

Now, onto what really matters...YOU!

We’d like to congratulate you + your person for arriving at this pivotal chapter in your relationship. Spoiler alert: You’re freakin’ engaged! We welcome you to an adventure you’ve yet to explore, until now. The amount of love and excitement you’re currently feeling is a moment we hope you’ll forever treasure. As you continue on through life’s biggest journey together, we ask you to do just that, really appreciate the moments that life throws your way, especially those on your wedding day. We believe this day is one of the most memorable of all. So many memories will be created in such a short amount of time and we can only imagine that’s why you’re here. You want a beautiful gallery and/or film uniquely handcrafted and filled with the thoughts, expressions + emotions you hold dearest to your heart from this special day. We’ve completely got you, promise.

Ah! Now the fun part begins,

Maybe you’re planning to scale the highest peak for a breathtaking, cliffside elopement. Or a cozy, intimate ceremony and reception filled with only your closest loved ones gathered around. Lastly, if an all out dance party underneath the city lights, with all of your friends + family is more your style, we can most definitely get down with that, too! However you choose to celebrate this monumental event, we feel so honored that you’re here and have expressed interest in letting us play a small part in it. Also, we’re huge travel junkies and go wherever love takes us. Please know that no place is too far away from us!

We live for moments, because they truly matter. The big + small, cozy + wild, heartfelt + joyful. All distinctive in their own right, but all so important in the end. We capture YOU, without all of the cheesy and posed moments anyone can do. That’s not our jam. We want these moments to speak your truth and your story, because in the end that’s what it’s really all about.

We wholeheartedly believe your great love story should be an adventure, full of significant moments along the way.

Let’s tell it wildly + authentically, together.

"Seriously, look no further. Hiring Woodland & Ivory for our wedding Cinema and Photography was the best decision that we made for our wedding day (other than saying “I Do!”). Dave, Jeff, and Miguel captured every moment, every emotion and every word from our big day & gave it back to us in the most beautiful photo and video footage we’ve ever seen.

They are hands-down the most talented people we’ve ever worked with and we recommend them to everyone we know. They’re all around amazing guys with outstanding talent. We feel so lucky to have worked with them and will cherish these memories for the rest of our lives! Wish we could give 10 stars!"
