Hi there,

I’m Jesse, the photographer. My assistant, 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. I also have extensive studio photography experience and understand the importance of crafting light to create images of the highest quality.

Moira’s background is in event planning, so she has an exceptional command of wedding day logistics. Need help gathering family members? Done. Not sure how to fold a pocket square? Moira’s got you covered. And hey, she’s a pretty darn good photographer too.

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

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.

Wedding photography is so tricky. For our wedding, I wanted to make sure we had photos with our family and friends, but I had basically resigned myself to thinking that the pictures would be cheesy and posed regardless of who I hired as my photographer. I can't overstate how very pleased I am to be totally wrong.

Jesse and Moira are a warm, friendly and professional team. They responded to all of my emails promptly, and when I was flaky about sending in signed contracts, they gently reminded me to do it. Well before my wedding day they compiled a list of my family members and bridal party and talked to me about how I envisioned the day going. By the week of my wedding I could happily forget about everything photography related and focus on everything else.

I don't remember a lot about taking photographs the day of the wedding except that Jesse and Moira had everything figured out. They showed up early to scout locations for the posed photos, they made an order, and they were totally in charge. I also remember that after posed photos were finished, Jesse and Moira stealthily photographed the reception. They never disrupted the celebration, but I was vaguely aware of them always being there.

My wedding day was a blur. What I like most about my photographs is that they put everything in context. I can identify the exact moment every photo was taken, and they really capture the spirit of the day. I especially love the pictures of Ken from before the ceremony. I wasn't with him, but I can feel his nervousness and excitement through the images.

I also love how quickly I had my photographs. I know people sometimes wait months. I had mine in a couple of weeks.

From the very moment that I spoke to Jesse and Moira photo booth at a Bridal show I immediately knew they would be the perfect photographers for our Aspen, Colorado wedding. They both have a positive energy, a great vibe and both were truly artist. Throughout the entire process of scheduling photo shoots, making payments and finalizing details, they were both very professional and immedialtey responsive to calls, text and emails.

The day of the wedding, they were professionally dressed, blended in with our guest and in all honesty, I think they had as much fun as the guest and ourselves! After receiving our digital photos we found that they were were able to capture some of the most amazing moments of our sweet dog, and the entire wedding event.

I would highly recommend Jesse LaPlante photography to anyone seeking a photographer for all life's important moments.

We used Jesse and Moira as our wedding photographers. We do not have enough words to describe how great our photos turned out, and what great people they are to work with. They have such great personalities and were so easy to get along with.
I was big on meeting the vendors before actually hiring them, to make sure they fit into our vision and our personalities. Jesse was awesome enough to meet with us in Brighton where we live. Which was huge for us, it’s a lot planning a wedding. We drove all around town meeting all our other vendors. So it was so great that he came to us. I looked at many photographers online, and contacted about six that we narrowed it down to. However, Jesse was the first and only photographer we met with, we knew after meeting him and seeing his work. That he was exactly what we were looking for. Whenever contacting Jesse, he was very prompt with responding right away. Which every bride knows it just puts your mind at ease, and makes it easier to plan not having to worry about whether or not you are going to get a response from a vendor.
They did an outstanding job capturing all our special moments. Jesse had our photos to us quickly; he even delivered them to our house. We order a metal print to hang on our wall, it turned out beautifully. We are actually getting ready to order a second one as soon as we decide on a photo, since there are so many great ones to choose from. We cannot thank them enough for what a great job they did. We would highly recommend using them as your wedding photographers.
