Hi there! We are Joan and Jon and we are BellowBlue. We are a husband and wife team that has been in the photography industry since the completion of our bachelors degrees in 2005. As Cinema and Photography graduates, Jon and I have a unique style that is creative and one of a kind. We hire no outside help for photo editing and photograph with no assistants. In order to keep this high level of quality in our work, we only photograph a limited number of weddings. We are believers in living your passion and are grateful for the opportunities to do just that. Jon and I are so happy to be working side by side and feel we complement each other creatively.

Joan and Jon were amazing photographers. They were nimble and flexible when it came to our requests, and supportive of our quirks. They even managed to make my photo-phobic husband feel entirely comfortable--and even eager--to have photos taken of us. I strongly recommend them to any future brides & grooms. They're the best!

Annie and I have felt so special the entire experience with Bellow Blue, from the first meeting at a small cafe on State St. until the last photo was snapped on our wedding day. Then, like promised, the wedding photos became available within 4-6 weeks after our wedding, followed by the most beautiful Bellow Blue flash drive love bird nest in the mail.

Bellow Blue is the most professorial, customer friendly, and talented wedding photographers in the Madison area. Every email was returned with a quick response and every phase of the day was planned. Bellow Blue was prepared for every part of the experience and every detail was captured on our wedding day. Thanks to Bellow Blue, my spouse and I can relive our wedding day over and over and over again.

Sincerely,
Ryan and Annie Minor

I don't know if I can find enough words to say that picking Joan and Jon from BellowBlue as our wedding photographers was hands down one of the best decisions we have made for our wedding. We recently did our engagement photo session with them at the Majestic Madison (as featured on their blog- http://bellowblueblog.com/?p=9826) and even when I pictured in my head what our photos were going to look like, I don't think I could have imagined anything like how they turned out - Simply amazing! It has been a week since the session was posted and I continue to receive compliments on it daily. My fiancé and I felt that they really listened to what was important to us and made it into a beautiful reality. As a designer, I wanted something a little more artistic for our wedding. I searched for hours looking for the perfect photographers who would help bring to light our special day in a way that was anything but run of the mill - and when I stumbled on BellowBlue's website I was in awe. After meeting Joan and Jon (we ended up talking with them in a coffee shop for over an hour!) my fiancé and I had no reservations in booking them immediately. If what they did for our engagement session is any indication of what is yet to come for the wedding, I absolutely cannot wait. The two of them are creative, professional and down to earth - You can tell they are the kind of people who want to make your day as special as you do.

We could not have asked for two better, more professional photographers to capture all of our special moments that took place on our wedding day. Having not one but two amazingly professional photographers capture our special moments was so wonderful. All angles were shot and both Jon and Joan’s shots put together created a beautiful story for us! From shortly after we got engaged to throughout our entire wedding journey, Joan and Jon provided us with excellent communication and loads of information needed to prepare for our wedding. Joan and Jon would answer any questions we had leading up to the big day via email, telephone or Skype. We never had to wait longer than 12 hours to gain any type of response. This made me feel SO good as a bride. Joan and Jon provided us with their professional opinions on what type of shots to take, what lighting to use, etc. They were also super open to doing anything we requested. Joan and Jon made our day all about us, the bride and groom. They were constantly by our side if we needed anything or wanted special things captured. Their presence throughout the entire day was so discrete and respectful, especially during our wedding ceremony. We had a full Catholic mass and I honestly cannot remember once seeing them snap a photo. They are that awesome… so respectful and professional . We were also surprised with a video that was made by Joan and Jon that summed up our wedding day so beautifully. They did this amazing feature where it looks like the photos put together are moving. All of the highlights of the day are included in our video and a beautiful song plays quietly in the background. I think we have watched the video over ten times already and we have only had our photos for less than 24 hours! Joan and Jon NEVER missed a beat. Every single detail was included in our photos. We saw things in our photos that we never even saw on our wedding day! We would highly recommend Joan and Jon to any future bride and groom!

If I could I would give a 10/5.0 in every category! My wedding photos are so beyond my expectations! I've never felt so comfortable and beautiful just being myself- my photos are unique, beautiful, artistic and natural. Joan and Jon are both so calm and patient, everything was very relaxing and enjoyable(I'm one of those people that usually doesn't enjoy getting my picture taken). Would recommend them to anyone that wants truly priceless one of a kind photos!

I highly recommend BellowBlue to future couples looking for wedding photographers. I planned my Wisconsin wedding from another state and found them when conducting Internet searches for a wedding photographer. Based solely on their online portfolio my husband and I hired Joan and Jon to photograph our wedding and we are extremely glad that we did. They did an excellent job capturing our wedding with their unique artistic vision. We have many stunning photographs that are truly works of art that we will proudly display throughout our home. Joan and Jon are a husband and wife team and because of this they work seamlessly together and create a relaxing atmosphere. I was nervous on the day of the wedding, but both Joan and Jon put me at ease. They are creative individuals and we relied on their artistic vision, but they also asked for our input on multiple occasions and were extremely accommodating when we asked for a particular picture at the end of the evening. I appreciated how flexible and personable they were and their willingness to go the extra mile. For example,Joan helped out with the final preparations at the church and even tied my bridal sash. Joan and Jon excel at their craft, were a pleasure to work with, and were very reasonably priced. I will definitely be recommending them to family and friends.

Bellow Blue photography is awesome at what they do, because it’s not a job to them- it their passion and they really love what they do. My husband and I got the pleasure in working with Joan and Jon on our wedding on 07.13.13 and would couldn’t be more pleased! They were with us 12+ hours and not once did they ever get in the way. They captured every special moment of our wedding and when we got the photos we got to relive the whole day/night. The photos brought tears to our eyes- as they didn’t leave anything out. They are true professionals and know what they are doing! We would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts and are so happy we got the chance to share our special day with you both!

We had the pleasure of having Joan and Jon of BellowBlue photograph our 6/29/13 wedding and we couldn't be more pleased! Joan and Jon are professional, easy to work with, great at giving direction, and open to photo ideas. Best of all, they are passionate about their craft. They are true artists. They kindly let us sneak a few peeks throughout the day of our digital shots and every photo was nearly a work of art. The photos were beautifully lit, natural, and captured the essence of us. When we set out to find photographers, we wanted to find a team who would capture our true selves on film. We didn't want standard, ordinary wedding shots. We wanted a collection of photos that would take us back to our day and tell our story. Joan and Jon were able to carry out our vision. Without hesitation, we highly recommend Joan and Jon as photographers. We hope to work with them again soon!

Words can't describe how much fun these two are! They truly work well together, being a husband and wife team, they know how to put the bride and groom together so it looks natural, but a great photo.

They were with us for almost 12 hours and never were in the way or pushy, they went with the flow and captured great shots. They are truly artistic and both talented. We can't wait to get all the proofs back!

They're a great pair to work with and I wish we had another big event so they could come photograph it!

Jon and Joan were recommended to my fiancé and me by not one but two co workers. I had seen the photos from both of their weddings and immediately fell in love with Jon and Joan's work.

We recently had our e-session with the pair and couldn't be more thrilled with how the photos turned out. They captured our personalities in a gorgeous setting without being over the top. It did not take them long at all to make us feel as though we'd known them forever and ensure our pictures truly reflected who we are as a couple. Jon and Joan were very laid back during the session and made us feel comfortable in front of the camera--they posed us but also let us have input. They were a far cry from other photographers we've worked with in the past, encouraging us to change outfits and scenery. We never felt rushed at any point during the session.

Throughout the whole process, BellowBlue has been extremely responsive to my emails/questions/phone calls/etc, always getting back to me within 24 hours.

I have absolutely no doubt that our wedding pictures will be just as phenomenal and without question would work with Joan and Jon again!

Bellow Blue is incredibly fun! They are professional, flexible and give you quality photos that you get to keep. They give you their full attention while photographing your special event and they don't miss a thing. It's nice having two of them there to photograph because you get all photos from two different angles. I would highly recommend Bellow Blue.

Bellow Blue – Joan & Jon A+++++++++++++

Bellow Blue was truly my favorite wedding vendor. Joan and Jon are so easy to work with and they are just so down to earth. I enjoyed every minute of our engagement pictures and now our wedding pictures. They helped us to look our very best and they definitely helped to capture the most important day of our lives.

I really love the fact that Joan and Jon are a married couple and they are also partners in their photography business. I really do feel that since they are so in tune with each other that it really flows through into their pictures. They’ve captured timeless, flawless, and captivating photographs that we will cherish for a lifetime.

If you are looking for a wedding photographer team that is professional, down-to-earth, and extremely easy to work with, look no further. Joan and Jon will go the extra mile (literally as they did travel from Madison to Chicago on two occasions to capture our moments) to ensure that you have everything you dreamed of and more with regards to your wedding photography.

AMAZING. My fiancee and I are currently living in Madison but getting married back East. Our wedding photography package had an engagement shoot included but we couldnt get back for it so we decided to do a quick, impromptu shoot here in Madison. We found Joan and Jon from BellowBlue who were not only accomodating to our quick timelines, but also priced right. They are such wonderful photographers that can do so many different styles (eclectic and unique, but classic and timeless as well). We had so much fun with them on the day of the photos as well - they asked what style of shoot we wanted, what our likes/dislikes were, and got shots that not only look beautiful but bring out our joy. They catch natural moments as well - none of the photos looked staged or like the cliche engagement photos we've seen elsewhere. Look at their website and you'll see that they travel for couples as well. We're actually hoping to schedule a post-wedding photo shoot with them back here in Madison since we love their work so much! I couldn't recommend anyone more highly - thank you Joan and Jon for such amazing work!!

Joan and Jon were absolutely amazing to work with. We could not have asked for anything more out of a photographer than what we received from BellowBlue.

My wife and I have both been in our fair share of weddings and every photographer seemed to shoot the same photos every time. So when we set out on our extensive search for wedding photographers we were looking for someone who thought out of box and didn’t just shoot the cliché wedding photos. We wanted our photographer(s) to have an artistic vision and to capture the moments of our special day and that is exactly what we received with Joan and Jon.They were great at helping with ideas for shots, but were open to any ideas we had (including a zombie attack shoot from the boys:)).

Joan and Jon were so personable with us. It felt like they were some of our guests. They are a very fun loving couple to work with. They responded in a timely manner with pre-wedding questions/concerns, took time to extensively discuss details for the wedding day, and even went to our venue a couple weeks before the wedding to get photo shoot ideas. They take pride in their job and work, and we would recommend them to anyone who is looking for creative/artistic wedding photos.

Our photos turned out amazing, and we received so many compliments about them. Many people have told us they are some of the best wedding photos they have ever seen. Thank you BellowBlue for capturing the moments of our wedding day in such a beautiful way.

My husband and I used Joan and Jon at BellowBlue for both our engagement session and wedding day, and they exceeded every one of our expectations! From the very start, they were professional, responsive, and genuinely excited to be working with us! They came down to Milwaukee for our engagement session, scouted out the area ahead of time, and had a TON of different locations and ideas for photos. They were easy to work with, had great senses of humor, and made the session feel very comfortable and fun! For our wedding day, they captured every moment spectacularly so that we could relive the day for years to come. Our families and wedding party thought they were a joy to work with, and we couldn't have been happier with how the photos turned out. We would recommend them to anyone looking for a great photographer, and would definitely use them again for anniversary photos, etc.! Thank you BellowBlue!

Joan & Jon were our photographers for both our engagement shoot and wedding day, and we could not be any more thrilled that we found this talented couple!

The quality of service you receive from them is just outstanding. Their vision for artistic and detail shots are incredible. Very fresh and modern take on photography, even if they are shooting a vintage wedding (like mine!). Their photography equipment is very high quality, you can tell they take pride in their work and services.

Their responsiveness is also wonderful. I have written probably 50++ emails back and forth with them, always hearing back quickly and with great detailed answers to my questions. They are just as detail-oriented as I am, which made them a PERFECT fit for our wedding!

Joan & Jon are incredible professionals. They went ABOVE and beyond what our contract even stated. They stayed later than they needed to, just to make sure they got all the amazing shots they wanted. They even attended our rehearsal the evening prior to our wedding just to scout out the venue and do a run-through with us (AND they gave us photos of that night free of charge..what other photographers would do that?) That was incredibly generous of them. The treat all their clients with the highest respect, but also can cut loose and just be your buddies (which helped us loosen up in front of the camera for sure!).

BellowBlue's value is wonderful...we never once felt like we overpaid for anything. In my opinion their work (plus their time, helpfulness, and generosity) is worth way more than they charge! I promise you, you will receive gorgeous pictures that are high quality and worth their value!

Joan & Jon are very flexible when it comes to scheduling photo shoots or branching off a wedding itinerary. They were very flexible with our engagement shoot (we had to switch it several times due to crummy weather). When it came to our wedding, the schedule I had was very jam packed from 7 am to around 6:30 pm when the dancing started. They were there with us every step of the way, very flexible with sudden changes. They just went with the flow and kept the wedding party on schedule with portraits. And they didn't even sweat it, they were calm at all times (which is a huge relief for a nervous bride).

Overall, Joan & Jon are WONDERFUL to work with, and I would recommend them to anyone in a heartbeat!!

Jon and Joan were amazing photographers. We were looking for photographers that were fun, professional, and took outstanding pictures. We couldn't have asked for a better team than Jon and Joan.

Jon and Joan were routinely responsive to our questions and took the time to sit with us and talk through our day. It was so important to us AND them that they understood what we were looking for and that they were able to put a creative twist on our day.

The flexibility they provided to us was OUTSTANDING. They went with the flow of everything and we were so comfortable with them - it wasn't hard to suggest a shot or to ask for a picture with a certain group of people - they were always present, but not in an in your face way.

My husband, mom, and mother in law arranged for a special "send off" at the end of the night that was a surprise to me. I had said that Jon and Joan could head home but they were willing to stick around secretively and show up at the send off. As I walked out and saw the sparklers and the horse drawn carriage my first thought was I hope someone is taking pictures and then I saw Joan and Jon and had some tears! I can't thank them enough for being there for that moment.

I HIGHLY recommend the team of BellowBlue to anyone looking for amazing photographs, wonderful people, and the best bang for your buck. Jon and Joan are truly talented photographers and we could not have made a better choice for our wedding!

This couple is simply amazing! Talk about dedication to their art. They have such an eye for details and poses. They spent an endless amount of time making sure my fiance and I got every shot we wanted! Their vision and technique was so impressive! And they were genuinely interested in every prop, every outfit change, and every little meaning behind why these things were important to us. Joan and Jon have all the great qualities of a photographer; an artful eye, curiosity for experimenting, personalities to make their clients feel comfortable in front of the camera, and patience for the perfect shot. Their work is brilliant!

I stumbled across BellowBlue while searching the internet for a wedding photographer. I had 5 must haves when looking for a photographer - 1) no set time limit, 2) the option to have my photo files, 3) willing to travel to my tiny hometown in SW WI (there are some winding roads to get there), 4) reasonably priced (I was a bride on a budget), and 5) photos I would love forever! I can honestly say they met all 5 check points and beyond. They were very responsive when answering my many questions. When I met them they were understanding and flexible with what I wanted for photography for our wedding day. They are truly a sweet and friendly couple. It was great doing our engagement shoot with them too because it gave my husband and I a chance to get to know them even more. The wedding day couldn't have gone any better. Jon and Joan were right on-time and got to work. We were even ahead of schedule when doing the family photos! That was a first for me from the many weddings I have been a part of. I also appreciated their “modeling” direction, as my husband and I aren’t the best at posing. You would never know though by looking at our photos. :) I received so many compliments at the wedding about our photographers - "it looks like they took a million shots", "they were so nice", "so professional and organized" - just to name a few. I was absolutely AMAZED when we got our wedding photos back. They were beautiful and again, I received soooo many compliments. It was like reliving the day all over again, which was exactly what I wanted when viewing my photos. My husband and I couldn't be happier with their services. Any chance I have, I rant and rave to newly engaged couples about Jon and Joan. They are wonderful!! I honestly couldn’t be happier! Thank Jon and Joan!

We could not have asked for more talented or dedicated photographers than BellowBlue. From our initial meeting to our engagement photos to the wee hours of our Wedding After Party, BellowBlue was there for us.

Joan and Jon were recommended to us by a friend who had just hired them for her own engagement session and wedding. After meeting with more than a handful of photographers we chose BellowBlue not only because of their amazing photography and easy-going personalities but they also offered the BEST deal for our money. Even with a few extra services we requested and traveling expenses they were by far our most affordable option without sacrificing quality. We were so happy to have found them!

We can't thank BellowBlue enough for the amazing photos of our wedding! They really captured each and every moment - even moments we never saw ourselves! It was incredible to go back through and relive every moment through their eyes. These are definitely photos we will keep and cherish for the rest of our lives. Thank you so much guys!!

Working with Joan and Jon was great - they were very open to our ideas for our wedding day, and stretched to make it happen. We ran a half-marathon on our wedding day (which ended up being rain delayed) -but John and Jon rolled with it an not only gave up the entire day to shoot our wedding and related festivities, but captured many excellent pre- and post-race photos.

In addition to the half-marathon (part of which was photographed in a in a downpour), a large portion of our day was outdoors in a variety of settings and conditions. There was the rain in the morning, but clear bright sky for race finishing and post-race shots at the Wisconsin Union Terrace were excellent. By the mid-afternoon, our outdoor ceremony was skillfully captured with a beautiful partly cloudy but bright and sunny backdrop, followed by style shots all outdoors as it became overcast and rain threatened again. Once indoors for the Reception, Joan and Jon did a good job of skillfully capturing a fast-moving, dynamic, and fun event.

Joan and Jon also worked fabulously with our videographer, although they had never worked together before. I was concerned about how this chemistry would work- but it could not have been better.

Don't just take my word for it, check out a small number of the many excellent shots: http://bellowblueblog.com/?p=2353
