About

WHO WE ARE.
JESSE + MOIRA LA PLANTE

We do things a bit differently. We’re not big on taking standard, posey photos. We specialize in nontraditional wedding photography and everything you see on our website is real. Real weddings. Real couples. Real emotion. Our goal isn’t to simply take pretty pictures, but to create works of art that are unique to you and worthy of hanging above your mantlepiece. We limit our calendar to 20 weddings per year so we can pour every ounce of our blood, sweat and tears into each wedding.

About Jesse:

I’ve been shooting weddings for 15 years. Before that, I was a professional photojournalist.

If pressed, I could probably eat around 47 tacos.

Skiing is my favorite pastime. We have two seasons here at J. La Plante Photo: wedding season and ski season.

One of my greatest joys in life is cracking a beer after a long wedding day.

I love to travel. I’ve been to all 50 United States and 18 foreign countries. So far…

Moira and I have been together for 15 years and not a day goes by that I don’t wonder just what in the hell she sees in me.

About Moira:

Events are in my blood. I grew up in a family-owned catering business and planned events at Georgetown University before I ever picked up a camera.

If I see a dog, I consider it to be a good day.

I spent the first part of the pandemic befriending the squirrels in our backyard. I’ve given them names.

My idea of a perfect evening is a warm blanket, a good book and a glass of whiskey.

I’m a meticulous notetaker. I have dozens of notebooks with funny sayings on the covers. A current favorite is “F*cking Brilliant Ideas.”

Jesse and I met on spring break in the Bahamas. He offered to buy me a drink. It was an all-inclusive resort.

The only choice if you want an experience that is uniquely you

Jesse and Moira are hands down the best in the game, and the only choice if you want unique, creative and timeless photos that capture *your* personality and *your* day. The photos are truly works of art, and their professionalism is unmatched. They are also wonderful people- both genuine and funny. We started off planning a large wedding and ended up eloping and they were with us every step of the way (literally- we hiked to our elopement). We’re thankful for not only the photos they captured for us, but the experience they created for us. Hands down the best.

Creative and Passionate!

Jesse and Moira do a fabulous job of explaining everything in the consultation. We were thrilled with our pictures from our wedding day. Our guests have loved the pictures as well. They're incredible photos out in nature (national parks, outdoors). They do a great job capturing movement, light, special moments, and directing for unique and stunning poses.

Absolute PERFECTION to work with

I cannot express how highly I recommend J.La Plante Photo! There is NO one I would trust more then this dynamite husband and wife team team!
The way Jesse and Moira were able to perfectly and beautifully capture our wedding day, is something I will cherish forever!
Obviously their work is beyond incredible. There are not enough words in the dictionary to describe how much I love the photos they took.
Now let’s talk about how Jesse and Moira truly helped make the wedding day such a dream. They were incredible at keeping us all on track and getting every single photo I requested. They also went out of their way to check in on us (bride and groom) throughout the day. I truly felt like Moira was like my wedding day mom with a camera!
If I could relive my wedding day again, I would just so I could hire them again !!!

As a professional videographer, I've worked with the majority of photographers in Denver, not just for weddings but for concerts and corporate events as well. Of all the photographers I've ever worked with, I can honestly say that Jesse and Moira's creative talents are leaps and bounds above everyone else. Their work is exceptional, they're down to earth, energetic and just so much fun to work with. If my wife and I were getting married again, without a doubt we would hire J. La Plante to shoot our wedding.
