I am extremely happy with Blue Dandelion Photography. Doug was fantastic to work with and did everything he could to make sure we got beautiful photos and enjoyed our wedding. He worked quickly, efficiently and made it easy on everyone involved. I haven't seen all the pictures yet, but I adore what I have seen.

Finding a photographer was becoming the hardest part of the wedding planning process for my husband and I. So, it was like a breath of fresh air when we wrote to Blue Dandelion and got a quick, articulate and accommodating response from Doug. When we meet him with him, he took us step by step through his process, helped us understand what to expect, walked us through different pricing options that fit our budget and shared some of his absolutely stunning past and present work. He was very happy spirited, passionate and professional. We booked him right away. After signing our contract with Blue Dandelion we decided to move our wedding up a full year AND change locations….that meant we called Dough in about June to look into a wedding for September-October of that same year. Miraculously, he worked with us to find an opening not only for our wedding but also for our engagement shoot. He then rushed delivery on the engagement photos so we could get out our wedding date announcements. And, the photos was breathtaking. They captured moments unique and special to my husband and myself.
Our wedding was extremely intimate and I had fears that our close knit group would be nervous around the photographer. But, Doug blended into the wedding celebration. He was cheery with my guests, calming with me, and blended into the background when required. You could also tell he had a vision, which he worked closely with my husband and I to create, and was great at giving direction and guidance while also allowing everyone the space to “be” in the moment. And, he worked so incredible hard the whole day. I could not recommend Blue Dandelion enough. You would be hard pressed to find another team more dedicated, accommodating and experienced who will create such beautiful masterpieces for such a reasonable price.

The BEST decision my husband and I made was hiring Blue Dandelion Photography for our destination wedding. End of story.

Okay, that's not the end of the story. Although that can sum it up, I am bursting with praise for this company and I need to share.
From the moment we contacted Blue Dandelion Photography last fall (2012) we were impressed and booked them for our wedding. Before the wedding we had our engagement photo session set up in a timely manner, and we met Doug for the first time. It was obvious that Doug knew what he was doing, and made us feel comfortable throughout the session. We were extremely happy with the results, and were able to view our photos after only a few weeks!
Our wedding was in Mexico March (2013). Not only did Doug capture every moment from the wedding day, he also gave us a day after session where we were able to have more 'couple' photographs taken and felt more at ease. Both our families were impressed with Doug and his ability to run around and photograph every angle of the wedding while it was happening, and also the family pictures afterward.
We were ecstatic that we received our final CD of photos LESS THAN A MONTH after the wedding. Blue Dandelion was way AHEAD of schedule, and sent our photos to us months before the contract agreement deadline. We were blown away by the quality and moments that Doug captured which shined through our photos.
It's obvious that Courtney and Doug don't just do this for a living, but they have the passion and drive for producing great photographs. The proof of their expertise and skill shows through their product. Blue Dandelion Photography is stuck with Nate, I, and our future family for life. I can't imagine choosing anyone else to document such important life events.
For those of you who are fellow skeptics of reviews and question the authenticity; I am the girl holding the flowers with the ocean waves crashing in the background, in the photograph listed above :)

My husband and I worked mostly with Doug at Blue Dandelion and he was absolutely wonderful. We had a really rough start to our wedding planning and ended up moving our date back by a full year. I ended up in and out of the hospital for about 6 months due to an illness and we had no problem rescheduling our set date. Doug would even call/email to check up on me, and he seemed genuinely concerned for my health. We had a few vendors that were down right rude to me because we asked to move our date back for our wedding, even though the choice was out of our hands. We were charged extra for moving our date by a few vendors but Blue Dandelion did not request extra payment, even after we offered.

The photos that Doug and his assistant took at our wedding were beautiful. The images are inspired and work together to tell the story of our day. My husband and I are extremely happy with the product we received. They had the style and quality that we were looking for, all at a reasonable rate. Doug was open to all our suggestions and even allowed us to bring our dogs to our engagement photos, even though he is allergic (Sorry Doug). I would recommend Blue Dandelion to anyone and I hope we have a reason to use them in the future.

We had an engagement photo session with Doug a few months before our New Years Eve Wedding. Both experiences went perfect. With the daylight being limited since our wedding was in the winter time and the sunset earlier we were so glad Doug managed the time well to be able to get our outdoor shot, along with everything else we hoped for! He was not only professional but a lot fun, our entire wedding party really enjoyed themselves during the photos session. Blue dandelion exceeded our expectations! We hope to someday have baby photos done by Doug & Courtney! : )

We checked out a number of wedding photographers before deciding to go with Blue Dandelion Photography to capture our big day. BDP's style is vintage and they're not your average, ordinary wedding photography company. Doug was our master photographer for both the engagement session and wedding day. He was brilliant! He has a great eye for the shots that will make your wedding photo collection a timeless masterpiece. We also added an associate photographer who complimented Doug's work at our ceremony and reception.

Doug was quite professional and thorough in his dealings with us before, during and after our wedding day. He was fun to work with yet able to keep the wedding party on task during our photo ops between the ceremony and reception. This let us maximize our time in front of the camera and get more of the shots that we later fell in love with! We were worried about the rain forecasted on our wedding day but Doug quickly put that anxiety to rest. He pointed out that he had plans for both outdoor and indoor settings no matter what Mother Nature threw our way. In the end, we found a break in the rain and Doug took some stunning shots outside!

We rated BDP's responsiveness at 4 stars as there were a few occasions that it took more than one phone call, voice or text message to get a response to a question of ours. Nevertheless, we were very pleased with BDP's work and would recommend them to anyone!

Working with Doug for our engagement session was great, and working with both Doug and Billy for our wedding was even better! They are a lot of fun, which makes everything (especially being photographed all day) -that- much more enjoyable. The shots they were able to get turned out beautiful. We wanted our photos to look like they came straight out of a magazine - not corny or cheesy staged poses, and when I look back at them now, I feel like that is exactly what we got! I -STILL- can't stop looking at them over and over again! I don't know if I ever will - or want to!

There were times that I wished the communication could have been more responsive and the timing of promised deadlines was a bit late, but in the end everything came together perfectly and was well, well worth the wait. Doug and Billy went well out of their way to make everything flow smoothly the day of the wedding, and some of the humor we all shared throughout the day will always be a part of the memories that made our day so special!

Blue Dandelion Photography came highly recommended to me after I thought there wasn't a photographer in the Greater Milwaukee area that could deliver the vision we had of our wedding day in photos. Blue Dandelion went above and beyond our expectations and we will continue to pass along the high recommendations!

Thanks again!

We payed for two photographers for the day. One left right after the ceremony. I did not receive a single picture of my bridesmaids at the alter, and only one picture of the groomsmen. Our engagement session was rescheduled multiple times and were not flexible or open to ideas as to where we shot them. Rude customer service when they finally got back to us. I feel like a lot of my wedding was missed in photography. It's been some time since our wedding, and I still get upset thinking about Blue Dandelion.
