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.

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! They did an amazing job and the photos are more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. You can...

I truly loved the experience and the results!

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. She was the only photographer at our wedding of 150 people and she managed to take pictures of everything and we couldn’t be happier with all of our engagement and wedding photos. 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!

Soleil was absolutely wonderful to work with! She was patient and very efficient with getting through the big group shots in a timely manner. She even got in one last outdoor shot right before she had left that I had been wanting. I would recommend Soleil to anyone!

We cannot say enough great things about Yellow Paddle! We had Laura C. take our engagement pictures and they turned out beautiful!

We booked both an engagement session as well as a wedding photographer through Yellow Paddle and I'm so happy we did. As a financially conscious couple, we wanted to find a company that was affordable but also did great work. We're so pleased we found Yellow Paddle. Courtland...

Soleil L. did an amazing job for our wedding!! We could not be happier.

You get what you pay for with this photography. We were on a tight budget so I don't regret using this service. Overall, our photos were very pretty and we had a lot of good shots to chose from. However, these are the reasons why I took off 2 starts. The quality of the photos... Read More were less than ideal. When trying to print them and in comparison to photos our guests took, they are dark and grainy looking. They are still usable but a bit sub par for professional photos. Additionally, there were several things that were not captured that I had specifically asked for. We didn't have a wedding party so we opted for just one photographer, I would suggest maybe using 2 so that everything is covered. There were 0 photos of our wedding rings and I had asked that since it was a small wedding to be sure to get lots of photos of our guests. Unfortunately, she basically only took photos of people dancing so there are a bunch of photos of like 10 people and none of the other like 40 guests. My biggest disappointment was that it took 5 full weeks to get any photos back. Most photographers will give you at least a sneak peek of like 5 or so photos within a week. Nope, nothing for 5. That''s like 2 years in social media time and especially after your wedding when you want to at least change your profile pic. We used 1 photographer for our engagement photos and one for our wedding and both were very nice and professional and we did get enough photos to not be disappointed. However, I have been married before and loved, loved all of the photos from my first wedding but these photos are just ok in comparison. If I was a first time bride I think I would be fairly disappointed in the quality. If you are on a budget I would recommend Yellow Paddle but if you have room to spend a bit more on photography I would.

I could literally go on for hours about how happy we were with our photographer from Yellow Paddle. We chose Courtland Wilson to be our photographer based on several portfolios that Yellow Paddle showed us... Courtland arrived a few hours before our ceremony, and immediately,...

Throughout the ceremony and reception, he actually helped us to coordinate where people should be and when, including getting our family in order when our Wedding Coordinator was busy setting up the reception area!
