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.

    Nailed the "Snow Globe" Look at our Winter Wedding!

    My husband and I couldn’t be happier with our wedding photos! We hired Moira and Jesse with J. La Plante Photography to shoot our NYE wedding in Estes Park, Colorado. Our hope was to take advantage of the time of year and location to capture the fairytale “snow globe” look. During our consultation, M&J were upfront and honest with us about making our vision a reality and gave us an outline of how the day would look if we wanted pictures in Rocky Mountain National Park. We were able to capture both indoor and outdoor pictures that day, which turned out unreal! M&J were great to work with and listened to every detail we mentioned to them in the weeks/days leading up to our wedding. They are a phenomenal husband/wife team with endless capabilities! They’re also fun to hang with, too! You’d definitely WANT them around on your wedding day! Thank you, Moira and Jesse!

    Best photographers. Period.

    Choosing Jesse and Moira as our photographers was the best choice that we could've made. We knew that photos were going to be one of the most important things to take away from the wedding and we spent weeks looking at photographers only to be hit with the same issues. Most photographers either lacked quality, or were highly expensive with huge restrictions on photos or both. Not only did Jesse and Moira exceed our expectations, they helped ease a lot of stress and made the entire experience fun. The photos for our wedding came out better than we could have imagined and really showcased our unique and weird styles.

    You've found your photographers!!!

    I cannot & I mean cannot express how much we absolutely loved working with Moira and Jesse! They are so talented & make such an amazing team. We first met them at my sisters wedding in DC & I knew from there I had to have them for my wedding in Montana. Their planning, attention to detial & down to earth attitude isnt something that is easy to find. They definitely deserve an award for putting up with our wild & crazy group. We will never be able to thank them enough. I truly hope our paths cross again someday. Hey, maybe someday you guys can join us for some "slap the cooler" drinks! Haha. Thanks again for everything Moira & Jesse!!

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.
