The Best

Yellow Paddle is by far the best photography, especially for the price. The photographers were professional and took command of the sequence of pictures, listened to our requests, were patient and had great ideas of their own. We had Alex and Kari, and they were both...

Awesome Deal!

We feel so fortunate to have found Yellow Paddle Photography. Their prices were amazing for the services offered and their customer service was wonderful and didn't make you feel like "just another customer". They really took the time to get to know you and what you were... Read More looking for. Having multiple photographers' portfolios on-line made it really easy to choose exactly what type of photography we wanted for our wedding and which photographer could supply it. I would definitely recommend Yellow Paddle to any one looking to have professional photos done, and we would highly recommend Fernanda as her talent and skill showed through with her working with our bridal party and wedding guests and in the photos that we have seen so far. She also took our engagement photos which were also amazing.

We had our wedding in September, and were on a bit of a budget. We wanted great photography, but couldn't afford a high end photographer. I found Yellow Paddle on The Knot.

Very happy with our experience working with Yellow Paddle. I'm not going to lie, I was a little hesitant when we signed our contract but I shouldn't have been.

My husband and I were DIY'ers for our wedding and trying to keep costs down, while maintaining a certain feel for our wedding. We were so happy and lucky we found Sara McCarthy and Yellow Paddle. Choosing her from the collective was hard- all were so talented- but we definitely... Read More chose right for us! We met with Sara a month before to discuss our shot list, and just MEET- and her laid back but super involved personality was incredible. The day of the wedding she came to our hotel, went to the location and stayed all night. We now have a fantastic and beautiful digital collection to peruse through and make our own albums, when we are ready. We were able to relax with Sara, be goofy, show off our personalities and she got all the little details that DIY'ers put so much work into, in making their wedding one of a kind. We honestly could not be happier. Thank you, Yellow Paddle and thank you, Sara!!

Yellow Paddle was truly great, from the first meeting before our wedding, to the two lovely ladies who photographed our event. Soleil was first class with all of her pictures and photographic angles/lighting/settings, and has what I consider a terrific photographic eye. Her and... Read More Veronica were overly prepared at our wedding with their own ladders and other accessories necessary for their photographic ideas. The finished product was truly outstanding, as a wide variety of different photos were produced using different filters, black and white and other color effects.

My husband and I worked with Sara McCarthy and Jen H. for our wedding and absolutely ADORED them both! Not only were both ladies friendly and professional, they were true artists! The shots that we saw the day of our wedding were AMAZING and unique, as both Sara and Jen took... Read More full advantage of our beautiful venue. They were both also professional and were able to wrangle our enthusiastic, opinionated family to capture some wonderful group shots. Somehow they managed to make a very tired 2 year old flower girl smile in our formal shots (not an easy task). As a bride who is not naturally comfortable in front of the camera, I admit I was very nervous about taking photographs all day. However, Jen and Sara were so friendly and encouraging that, before I knew it, I was actually having fun taking pictures and posing for the camera! We cannot recommend them highly enough and, after getting all of our AMAZING photos, we know we made the right choice!

I am SO glad I found yellow paddle photography! As everyone knows weddings can add up fast, but who doesn't want amazing photos of their Wedding Day. I was struggling with budget vs quality until I found Yellow Paddle which is such an Amazing service that not only allowed us to... Read More stay under budget but get AMAZING quality photos. We did the 1 1/2 photographer package and choose Jeff S. as our full day photographer. Let me tell you he was great, he listened to everything we wanted and more. We then got assigned Roger W. as our 1/2 day photographer which was awesome because we also added on a family photo session and Rehearsal Dinner photo session which yellow paddle was able to accommodate Roger to cover as well. It was great getting to know Roger and have him cover priceless moments from our wedding weekend. All in all we have SO many amazing photos to choose from I am finding it hard to choose which ones to get printed! Thank you Yellow Paddle for helping cover not only our Wedding day but so much more, for a price that this Saavy Bride was grateful to find!

We had Yellow Paddle do our wedding and engagement photos. Katie K was our photographer. I really loved her work. Our engagement photos turned out beautifully and we had a lot of great ones to pick from for our save the dates and just to frame. We selected the 1.5... Read More photographers for our wedding and Katie K was our main photographer which we were able to choose but the other photographer was not as good. We got great photos of me and my husband and the ceremony and most of the reception. We definitely have some beautiful photos to frame of the two of us which was high on our list. However, I don't have some key photos that I really wanted - me & my mom by ourselves, only one photo of just me and my sisters. The group photos are also way too close on a wide-angle lens....the people on the ends look huge and are darker than everybody else. I do have about 100 photos of about the same 10 guests dancing at the reception which was a little annoying since we had 2 photographers for most of the night - one could've been walking around taking photos of the rest of the guests...that would've been nice. We're not going to frame those photos or anything but it would've been nice to look back and see all of the guests at our wedding. I should've been more firm in what I wanted I suppose but I assumed some of those photos were just kind of no-brainers and honestly, I was so caught up I didn't really think about it. I think if you are very particular and firm in what you want and maybe have someone at your wedding to kind of watch and make sure the photos happen that you want, this is an excellent option. We got our photos within a month or so after the wedding and I do love all of the photos we did get but I'm just a little disappointed that I'm missing those few pretty important ones.

Yellow Paddle went above and beyond our expectations. The two photographers they sent (names) were very helpful and quick with getting our photos done. We wanted to have the majority of our photos taken prior to the ceremony, and our photographers were very accommodating.... Read More They were quick to position subjects and take shots, and took some wonderful photos.

We chose our photographer based on her portfolio and her pictures were beautiful. At our first meeting, she was almost an hour late. Throughout the whole wedding planning, I had been having nightmares primarily about my photographer not showing up for the wedding. On the day... Read More of the wedding, our chosen photographer arrived at the church 10 minutes late and said she couldn't do our photos due to illness. My nightmare had come true. Thankfully, Yellow Paddle was sending someone else. Our other photographer was very nice and we liked working with her, but we would have really appreciated more notice, as in not when we were supposed to start taking photos. We weren't able to do the pre-ceremony photos like I wanted, and a lot of stress was added to the day. What I like about Yellow Paddle is that we get the rights to all of our photos. It's nice that we can download all of the pictures, and guests can as well. The quality of the pictures is good, although my dad is convinced that his are better and less blurry when printed. I think some of this has to do with the overhead skylights in the church. Overall the company provides a good value, but make it clear to your photographer that if they feel at all sick that day, they should call you sooner rather than show up and cancel.
