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... Read More them, and then we enjoyed getting to meet our photographer via Skype (we do not live in CO) to talk about what we had envisioned for our wedding. 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.

Laura C. was SUCH a pleasure to work with for both our engagement shoot and wedding day! We aren’t huge fans of having our picture taken (myself especially), but she made us feel as comfortable as possible very quickly. She was also very understanding when we told her we didn’t...

Yellow Paddle was incredible! Kristen V. is an amazing photographer and a really nice person. We also had a great second photographer, Allyson.
