I’m Alex Grimes here’s a little bit about me.

There’s a lot about me that I can put here but I won’t keep you for long. I’m 24, I am a graduate from Iowa State University with my Bachelors in Art and Design. I started this filmmaking journey back in 2019. I worked for the United States Department of Agriculture in the Visual Services department as a videographer and photographer for a while. Now I run my own business that does a wide variety of video content, photography and design, but mainly specialize in Real Estate and Business videos (brand, commercial/ad, testimonials, and more). In 2022 I completed my first documentary (produced, filmed and edited by me) which has been selected for 5 film festivals and was a finalist in one. I am a certified drone pilot for any of your ariel needs! I am an open book so ask away when we meet!

"Alex at GrimCreative is the best around! He's been responsible for creating engaging content for our organization for over 3 years. The level of expertise and style he's developed is unmatched. While we've hired him for video we have seen his stills and they are equally as impressive. Whether your need, Alex has you covered."

Jake Escher

Quartz Team Realty,


"Grim Creative has done excellent work for me both personally and for my business. Alex is able to provide a service most others only strive to achieve. He’s fast, professional, offers great advice, and provides a jaw dropping finished product. I wouldn’t look anywhere else when I need videography, photography, or design!"

Abigail Jennings

Real Estate Client,


"Alex is a phenomenal videographer. As a real estate agent, I always strive for unique and professional content for property listings. Alex goes above and beyond and brings creative touches to every video session! He gets the videos done in a timely manner, and is very professional with communication. I could not recommend Alex more for your business’s videography needs!"

Brianna Kramer

Wedding Client,


"I can’t say enough good things about Alex!! I messaged him last minute and he was ready and able to capture our big day in a heart beat! We just got the video back and I can’t help but watch it on repeat. He knew how to capture every little moment and detail perfect. Nothing is better than getting to relive the day (that went by way too fast) by watching the video. He was so easy to work with and well exceeded our expectations. Don’t let the fact that he is new to this worry you or have you pass him by. You can’t even tell he’s new. He was such a big part of our wedding day and I wouldn’t change it for the world! 1000/5 stars. I’m so glad we chose GrimCreative. Thank you, thank you, thank you Alex!"
