Jesse La Plante Photography
Great Photographer! He took great shots very professional, great value very reasonably priced for a professional photographer.
We used Jesse (and Moira) for our engagement photos as well as for the wedding. Great photos from each. Made great suggestions, but never bossy or pushy. A wonderful team! Highly recommended!
Greatest wedding pictures we have ever seen for reasonable price. This group is truly talented and has an eye for art. Thank you so much for being a part of our wedding. We will forever have those pictures to remind us of our wonderful day. Hirsa and Joe
These guys were the best. their photos are beautiful. My favorite part was going through them all and seeing things i never even knew happened and ones i did i have pictures from kids playing in the grass to our first kiss as husband and wife. i can not describe how amazing they truly are. i hardly even knew they were there. Jesse had great suggestions on posies for us and well its hard to pick my favorites. all i know is he will be our photographer for life ( I hope he dose baby pictures).
Jesse Laplante photography is great. We had the photography and added the photobooth for the reception and it was great! We had a blast with the photobooth and so did our guests. Thank you Jesse and Mora for being such great people we really felt like you fit in with our group really well. The only minor thing I would have wanted corrected would have been to have a little direction with posing and ideas of different views with different people to do instead of doing it ourselves. Some of the pictures might have been a little more unique from a photographer stand point. Thank you for everything though we loved everything!!!
Jesse and Moira photographed our wedding in Boulder and two years later I couldn't be happier with the result. They responded well to my request that they get natural - candid photos. They followed us halfway up the mountain to do our "nature" shots. They didn't have any problem with my mom taking control at times and just were there at all the right moments. But the absolute best part was that they came to my house THE DAY AFTER OUR WEDDING with two complete dvds of every photo they took PLUS selected beautiful photos with some photo correction. The price was fair and I have never heard of another photographer that got the photos to you that fast.
Jesse and Moira did an amazing job at our wedding. Jesse la plante photography was recommended by a friend. They ended up photographing my mom's wedding, my sister's wedding and then ours. They were flexible and relaxed, which is exactly what we wanted. Jesse is prompt in communicating about the wedding, happy to help in anyway and takes amazing photos. By the next day, Jesse had already gotten us a couple of photos and we had our DVD with all of our pictures within 2 days of the wedding! I would recommend him for any event!
Photography was very important to me and I searched through many portfolios before finding a photographer who had a style that I liked for my wedding. Jesse has a background in photojournalism and I found the artistic approach he took with candid photographs the perfect way to document our wedding day. He did not disappoint us and provided a beautiful collection of photographs of the wedding that we love. The only minor detail that could have been improved is during the wedding I wanted advice on where to stand and the grouping of family pictures he told me that it was my wedding and I should tell him. Other than that, he was great and friendly and I would definitely choose him as my photographer again.
My background is in photojournalism, 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. Additionally, I have extensive studio photography experience, and understand the importance of crafting light to create the highest quality images possible.

“Thank you for your amazing work on our wedding. We still are getting compliments on the gorgeous photography. It really helps to remember the day in such vivid colors and meaningful moments captured.”
“Thank you Jesse. The pictures are beyond amazing. You were in the perfect place every time. You FAR exceeded our expectations.”
“Thank you! You guys were amazing! Our pictures are wonderful. We couldn't have asked for anyone better. You were always up for any crazy thing we threw at you! Thank you for being a part of our wedding.”
I believe in flexibility. You have a lot of things to worry about on your wedding day and your photos shouldn't be one of them. Have an idea for a fun photo? Let's do it. Need help gathering family members? Done. Want me to stay longer? No problem. I work my hardest to make your wedding as relaxing as possible.
Printing: All photos from your event are yours to print at no extra charge. You'll receive a DVD with enhanced high-resolution images as well as a printing release form, allowing you to make as many prints as you'd like without having to go through me. That said, if you would prefer I handle printing, just let me know and I'll set you up with what you need.
Travel: I love to travel, so I don't charge extra for long-distanct weddings. If you're having your wedding out of state or in some remote part of Colorado, I have you covered. Destination wedding? Even better. Contact me and we'll make it happen.
Jesse La Plante graduated from Central Michigan University in May of 2007 with a Bachelor of Science in Photojournalism. He was honored with several awards during his senior year at the University, which holds the title of most accredited
journalism school in the Midwest.
Jesse worked as a photojournalist for a few years before exploring other photographic avenues. He now focuses primarily on studio, travel and wedding photography, yet continues to utilize a journalistic approach in much of his work.
In the summer months, Jesse exhibits and sells his photography at fine art fairs, namely The Ann Arbor Summer Art Fair and “Art in the Park” in Royal Oak, Michigan. The former bestowed upon him the designation of “youngest artist” for six years in a row.
Something of a Jack-of-all-trades, Jesse has worked as a street-performing juggler & psaltery player, written two screenplays and drawn a nationally-published comic strip. He has traveled through 15 foreign countries and 38 United States. Jesse currently lives in Boulder, Colorado.
