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!

We were so happy with our experience working with Yellow Paddle on our wedding day! Our photographer was Sara M. and she was fantastic. Sara met with us a few weeks before our wedding to learn about our story and our vision for the wedding, and helped us strategize how to get...

Not only did Sara capture so many incredible moments we'll cherish the rest of our lives, she also took plenty of pictures of the small details that we spent a lot of time planning but couldn't really appreciate during such a hectic day. We're really glad we had the opportunity to work with Sara and, overall, our expectations were exceeded with Yellow Paddle.

We are so thankful for our experience with Josie and Yellow Paddle Photography. She took time out of her schedule to meet with my mom and I before the big day to talk about those special shots that we wanted then went above and beyond during our day. Our only regret is that we... Read More had her for 8 hours and we wish we would've had her all day. (Seriously people - just splurge on this!) In our wedding party we had two people with special needs and she made sure to include them to help them get to where they needed to be for all the special shots. The way she edited the pictures was wonderful. We are so happy and look back at our pictures with such happiness. She was never pushy and did everything we asked. When I was planning my wedding and looked on Pinterest, I always dreamed of having perfect pictures and she gave me that. Thank you Josie!

I worked with Paola B for my engagement photos and absolutely loved them! Paola was easy to work with, had lots of ideas for poses and made us feel comfortable in front of the camera.

She also (very nicely) asked a few people to move to get some amazing shots. The pictures were returned to us within 2 weeks and we had so many great shots to choose from for our Save the Dates. It was a very enjoyable experience.
