J. La Plante Photo

Jesse and Moira La Plante are Colorado-based photographers who have been shooting weddings since 2008. They first met in the Bahamas on spring break when Jesse (allegedly) offered to buy Moira a drink at an all-inclusive resort. Shortly after that fateful trip, the pair moved to Colorado, started J. La Plante Photo and never looked back.

In 2021, Jesse was named Fearless Top 50, ISPWP Top 50 and WPJA Top 10. When not photographing weddings, he can be found skiing, eating copious amounts of tacos and/or working on his beer belly at one of Colorado’s many outstanding craft breweries.

A true Jane-of-all-trades, Moira has honed her problem-solving skills by working in many different arenas, from academia to atmospheric science research to entrepreneurship, before migrating to the wedding industry. When not figuring out how to do the impossible, she can usually be found with her nose in a book or devising ways to spend more time around puppies.

What inspired you to become a wedding photographer?

The chance to work with clients who love the kinds of photos we love to take! The best wedding days are a collaboration between us, our couples, their guests, the weather, and whatever the day throws at us.

How would you describe your photography style?

Rather than try to describe our style with the usual “light and airy” or “dark and moody” or “true to life,” we strive to take photos you can FEEL. We want you to look at your photos and be instantly transported back to that moment and everything you experienced on your wedding day. Your gallery will include epic portraits, but also so many raw moments that are what made your wedding unique.

How do you ensure that your clients feel comfortable and relaxed during the photo shoot?

From the very first contact, we make it a priority to get to know you. Rather than put you in a box of our preconceived notions, we spend time learning about what you enjoy doing, your pets, your pet peeves, and everything else that makes you who you are. We strive to really listen to your answer and not make any assumptions
