Yvonne Gregory (1889-1970) was a British society photographer.

Gregory married fellow photographer Bertram Park in 1916.[1] Gregory, Park and Marcus Adams established themselves as the "Three Photographers" and based their collective studio at 43 Dover Street in Mayfair.[2][3] Their studio was initially funded by the Egyptologist George Herbert, 5th Earl of Carnarvon.[1] Gregory and Park would collaborate on works, and Gregory would also pose for Park.[4]

Park and Gregory published several books together including 1935's The Beauty of the Female Form.[4] The book arose from work they had produced for the first international photographic salon, held in Paris in 1933.[4]
