Hi there. I’m Jesse, the photographer. My assistant/second photographer, Moira, and I have been shooting weddings together in the Denver Boulder area since 2008.

Earlier in life, I was a professional photojournalist, so naturally, my approach to wedding photography is photojournalistic in style. I use a ‘fly on the wall’ method for capturing all the candid moments that make your wedding unique.

Moira’s background is in event planning, so she has an exceptional command of wedding day logistics. And hey, she’s a pretty darn good photographer, too.

Our business philosophy is quality over quantity and, as a result, we limit our schedule to 20 weddings per year. It can be easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of a busy wedding season, but capping the quantity of weddings really helps us to focus on the quality of our work.

Thanks for taking the time to visit this page. Be sure to check out our website as well. Finally, if you have any questions, or would like to check availability, contact us directly.

We’d love to hear from you! Read less

We absolutely loved having Moira and Jesse photograph our wedding. Not only were they professional and extremely good at what they do, they were also fun to hang out with and a pleasure to have around the day of our wedding. We chose them after seeing a friends wedding photos on FaceBook. We got married at sunset on November 22nd and I wanted someone who had experience photographing sunset or night shots and Jesse La Plante Photography absolutely did. Our photos turned out beautiful and even better than we though considering the weather was not cooperating with us. What Jesse and Moira captured with the wind and clouds was spectacular and we fell in love with the photos the minute we saw them. They also did a panoramic of the city scape view from our venue and included it in our photo album. We will definitely be calling them again for family photos and baby photos when our little bundle of joy arrives in May. Thanks Jesse and Moira for being a part of our wedding day and capturing the memories so beautifully.

Jesse and Moira did the photography at our destination wedding this past October in Mexico. I was thrilled that they were willing to travel that far since I have always been impressed with their work and always had hoped to hire them for my own wedding. Our wedding definitely showed how well prepared they are and how wonderful they are at what they do. We had a traditional Mayan ceremony on the beach. To be totally honest we didn't know what all the ceremony involved so everything was a surprise. There was so much going on between dancers, and the Shaman, and the guests that I felt like I was missing parts of the ceremony while it was happening, but Jesse and Moira didn't miss a beat of our wedding. If I hadn't known better I would have said that they had photographed a Mayan ceremony before because they captured everything so perfectly while also being extremely discrete. We only had a few poses in mind and left the ideas of the other photos up to them since that is what they do after all. Each and every picture came out beautifully and we could not be happier with them. They started with the "getting ready" photos and did not stop capturing our day until after our night shoot on the beach. This was exceptionally important to us as not all of our friends and family were able to make it to our wedding so now we can show them all of our pictures that tell the story of our special day. I definitely recommend them, trust me you will not be dissapointed!

Working with Jesse and Moira was an absolute pleasure from beginning to end. After meeting them at a wedding expo and chatting with them, we decided to meet at a coffee shop to get a closer look at his work and talk about what we were looking for -they drove down from Boulder to Denver to meet us near our home. My then fiance-now-lifepartner and I (we are two women) were instantly at ease with Jesse and Moira both - they compliment each other's personalities well - Jesse is more the quiet and brilliant artist who prefers to focus on the work as much as possible. Moira is the public relations part of the team - she always knew just what to say and is a superb listener, even mind-reader at times! The fact that we are a same-sex couple was truly a non-issue for these two; they could not have been more authentically supportive, congratulatory and gracious. On the wedding day itself, it was actually kind of FUN walking around, talking with both of them while Jesse snapped shots and Moira kept us smiling and relaxed! Both of them are wonderfully laid back and unflustered by wedding stressors; they kept a sense of humor throughout and did a great job politely corralling the family members for the group shots. And, of course, the most *amazing* part of the entire experience working with Jesse and Moira was seeing the photos just a few days after the wedding... We were blown away, no joke. Our photos are out of this world, and we could not be happier with them. This was the most worthwhile expenditure of our entire wedding budget - and even though Jesse gave us a fantastic deal since our wedding was actually on a Monday - knowing what we know now after working with him, we would be willing to pay much more!! You would not be disappointed working with JLP - we are so grateful for his skill and artistry in capturing our most-important day. Thank you Jesse and Moira!!

I haven't gotten my photos yet, but can hardly wait to see them. Jesse and Moira were very professional, and not obtrusive at all. I saw them getting great candid shots of me and my new hubby, and my guests, and can tell there will be some great ones in the mix. Jesse met with me several months before hand to go over his "style" and I really liked his professionalism. Moira called me a week before to make sure they had the photo list for all of the stills that I wanted done. Overall, I am very happy.

Fantastic. Very professional and organized. He and his crew were like 'flies on a wall'. They did their job and stayed out of the way and didn't try to run the event. Great phototgraphers. Beautiful pictures. We were on a budget and he is one of the most reasonably priced phototgraphers that I came across, but the quality was not reduced.

Jesse was willing to travel to our wedding location in the mountains at no extra cost. He stayed two hours later for us when we needed him to and allowed us to settle up the bill after our honeymoon, at which point we were already able to get DVDs of our photos. He and his partner Moira were very professional, while still remaining friendly and enthusiastic.

We LOVE the photos that Jesse and Moira took! When we were planning our very small (25 person) wedding, at first I didn't think that we would need 2 photographers, but I am SO glad that we had two and especially glad that we picked Jesse and Moira. We have amazing photos of small details (flowers, rings, food) and also stunning photos of the overall scene and mountain backdrop. They were both very calm and easy going and friendly and professional, and answered all of our questions thoroughly no matter how small or silly the question. Jesse responded to emails very quickly, usually within the hour.

During the wedding, I hardly noticed they were there but they took so many amazing photos. We love all of them, and have received so many compliments! Jesse posted several photos within 24 hours, and we received the high resolution photos in just 10 days. We really couldn't be happier with the photos and the service, and he was very reasonably priced as well.
