My wife and I decided to go with Yellow Paddle Photography because they had such a large selection of photographers and they were by far the most reasonably priced studio we could find. We appreciated meeting with the staff over the phone when we were thinking of booking with...

The company has a guarantee that they will still take care of you if your photographer gets sick on the day of your wedding. The photographers (Luke and Josie) showed up right on time, and did a wonderful job. We also had full access to our wedding photos about 4 weeks after our wedding! Great turn around! We would definitely recommend Yellow Paddle to anyone who is looking for a wedding photographer.

My husband and I wanted great photos but we had a budget to stick to, so I found this site. We booked Soleil and Marissa for a full day and have nothing but great things to say!

Yellow Paddle was incredible! Kristen V. is an amazing photographer and a really nice person. We also had a great second photographer, Allyson. Yellow Paddle contacted us a few weeks prior to our wedding and asked if we would like a trainee for free, so we ended up getting two... Read More photographers for the price of one. Kristen and Allyson did an absolutely phenomenal job -- the photos looked like we had spent 3-4x the price. Kristen even set up a "photo booth" for us, complete with backdrop and lights, and spent over an hour taking group photos so we wouldn't have to spend extra on a separate rental. Kristen and Allyson also turned around nearly 1400 photos in about two weeks -- unbelievable! The shots were romantic and truly gorgeous. Would 100% recommend!

o Marissa (one of the photographers at Yellow Paddle Photography) was an amazing photographer for both our wedding and our engagement photos! My husband and I had never had professional pictures taken and we had no idea what to do for the pictures or what pictures to ask for,... Read More but Marissa did an amazing job at taking a variety of pictures that made us look so amazing as a couple and she was very good at letting us know what to do to get these amazing pictures.

Also Yellow Paddle Photography had amazing prices that made the wedding photographer affordable without sacrificing the quality. We definitely suggest Yellow Paddle Photography and Marissa Straker to anyone still looking for a wedding photographer!
