When I started this little hobby + dream of mine in 2011, ten years later I could have never imagined the thousands of people we would get to serve + the team we have created. It is truly one of the biggest honors + joy of my life!
I’m a boy mom who is lucky to be married to my best friend. I live for a good thunderstorm while laying in bed binging netflix, I can’t go a day without a cold brew, and i’m a self proclaimed homebody who ironically loves traveling, if thats even a thing! Visiting Greece is on the top of my bucket list + my celebrity crush is Jason Bateman (seriously obsessed) when I’m not shooting weddings, styling + design is my jam. I refuse to be business like, my mission is to make you laugh, and i'm a big fan of always saying I love you.
married to my college BF + best friend in the whole world, my hubby Nate! We have one very spoiled little sweetheart, Mason Brooks, who is our entire world.
Meet the I+B MVP, Karlee is the busiest out of all of us! She is the mastermind behind your gorgeous images, all while balancing photographer, wife + mom life at the same time.
"When I’m not working my booty off, you can usually find me snuggled up on the couch binging reality TV, renovating our fixer upper cabin turned house on the river, or buying more plants to try to keep alive. If there’s not a camera in my hand, you can bet your sweet little toosh there’s a diet. Dew.
I can’t wait to capture some of the happiest days of your life, from photographing your wedding day to photographing your sweet new babe. I’m so excited to be along for the ride!"
Wife to my highschool sweetheart, Shane and mama to best little humans, Rowen + Gannon.
After shooting for I+B for 6 years, Kayley is what we love to call the OG Ivory+Blisser, who we refuse to let retire! :)
"Anyone who knows me knows my endless love of dr pepper. I love binge watching tv shows + movies, dance parties in my kitchen, camping and vacationing! I consider myself a homebody mostly with the exception of frequent dunkin’ + target trips. Happiest when I’ve got chips, guac + margs in front of me. I like to keep it real so while I’m on a roll, I suck at working out, keeping up with the laundry and I often sleep with my mouth open, haha! Photography stole my heart back in high school and has grown even deeper since. I love capturing real, raw, human connection + emotion. In 2020 I went out on my own to photograph, babies, kiddos + families. I’ll continue shooting a small amount of weddings for I+B just enough to feed my passion while still giving me time at home with my family! But enough about me, I can’t wait to get to know YOU!"
I’m a proud wife to my husband Jason who is a career fireman for the city of Cedar Rapids. We have two beautiful boys, Sawyer + Sutton! <3
Brit is our newest addition to the I+B team, and we couldn't be more lucky to have her!
"On most days you will likely find me at Target, sippin' a pumpkin cream cold brew a majority of the year, working out, or binge watching Schitt's Creek. I have 10+ jars of pickles in my fridge at all times thanks to my husband's podcast. My goal is to capture the real + authentic moments of the biggest day of your life. I'm allllll about the little details that you'll want to remember in 50+ years. When I'm not shooting weddings for Ivory + I am shooting for my own business focusing on lifestyle, newborn and families! Let's be friends! "
I'm a mama to two of the biggest sweethearts you'll ever meet - Eli + Violet! I'm married to the love of my life who constantly keeps me laughing and on my toes.
With our crazy work load, this girl is a huge help to keep us afloat! She couldn't be a more perfect fit + we are delighted to have her join the team!
"I'm a laid-back homebody with an adventurous soul. Ask anyone who knows me, whether they've known me my whole life or for five minutes and they'll be able to tell you my loves: Dr. Pepper, John Krasinski, Mexican food and binge watching all of the guilty pleasure shows. Coffee is truly part of my DNA, and I make it a mission to find a new coffee shop in every city or town I visit. I'm a social media and design junkie with a love of capturing the real and raw moments of the best day of your life. I'm so excited to be a part of those memories with you!"
Wifey to my person + best friend in the whole wide world, Andrew. We met in high school, life brought us back together five years later and we got married in October 2020. Now I can't imagine life without him!
