Husband and wife wedding photographers

We do things a little bit differently.

Hi there! We are Jesse and Moira. We’re Boulder wedding photographers who have been shooting weddings in Colorado since 2008. We’re not big on taking posey, traditional wedding photos. We like to focus on epic environments, creative lighting and real moments that are unique to each, individual couple.

You're here because you're looking for something different.

You’re tired of seeing the same traditional wedding photos over and over and you’re fed up with Instagram “influencers” and their washed out filters. Your wedding will be full of vibrant color and real emotion and you want your wedding photos to reflect that.


Check out our most recent real weddings.

We’re Boulder wedding photographers, but we shoot weddings all over Colorado and beyond. Whether you’re having your wedding in Boulder, Denver, Estes Park, Vail or Aspen, we’ll come to you, no extra charge.

Size doesn't matter!

If you just can’t wait to be married, there’s no better option than eloping in Colorado. With a plethora of epic mountain views and secluded locations that make you feel like the only two people on Earth, your Rocky Mountain elopement will be unforgettable.

Alt Sessions

These aren't your typical engagement session.

Instead of standing in a field practicing awkward poses, we’ll hang out and do something fun. Like skiing. Or shooting pool. Or grabbing a pint at your favorite brewery. We have a long list of cool ideas we’d love to try, but in the meantime, check out some of our favorite recent engagement sessions.

  • Bride and Groom on dance floor | Ironworks wedding | Best Denver Wedding Photographer | J. La Plante Photo

    "everywhere and nowhere"

    "Where do I even begin to sing the praises of these two incredible, genuinely fabulous and insanely talented artists??? I guess starting with the fact that I have been a professional wedding photographer for the last 16 years might add some weight to what I'm about to say....I cant imagine two more lovely or calming forces than we had in both Jesse and Moira. They were everywhere and nowhere all at once.  They captured the intense emotion from start to finish in a way that is truly beyond belief. They captured the SPIRIT of our wedding day with grace and a flow that is seriously next level.  These are not just photos.  They are works of art."

  • Bride and Groom in pedicab | St Vrain Wedding | Best Boulder Wedding Photographers | J. La Plante Photo

    "outside the box"

    "We didn't want same old same old boring group photos. We wanted a photographer who thought outside the box, who got to know us and our personalities and what made us happy and laugh! EVERYONE and I do mean EVERYONE has said the same thing about our photos... that they captured the amazingness of the night! And to top all of this off, these two people are just lovely, kind, smart, sweet, and easy to work with."

    "absolute best, hands down, nothing even comes close"

    "When I tell you my husband doesn't like pictures, I mean I MAYBE get one picture out of him. Two pictures? That's out of the question. Enter J. La Plante Photo. Jesse and Moira make taking pictures FUN! After our Alt session, my (now) husband could not wait to see them again for wedding photos and fun. Not only do their pictures and talent blow everyone else out of the water, but they are genuinely awesome people who make taking pictures relaxing and entertaining at the same time. My family and friends cannot get enough of them and their pictures, nor can we obviously! They are so unique and captured us and our loved ones so perfectly."

    "really makes you go WOW"

    "I'm not the type of bride that was looking for your typical wedding or engagement photos in the hay fields or romantically posed photos. But since that is what's popular, photographers with that style saturate the market. My style is unique, I love bold, bright colors and things that really make you go "WOW"....I knew the photographer that we got was going to need to have a crap ton of creativity with crazy ideas up their sleeve to deliver what I was looking for. [J. La Plante Photo] had exactly what I was looking for."

    "even more vivid and amazing"

    "Bottom line up front: the quality of their work speaks for itself. If you want traditional, boring, trite wedding pictures that look like everything you’ve ever seen before in a stock photo frame insert, then please go with anyone else. But if you want your wedding photos to reflect the unique magic and excitement of YOUR big day, then your decision to hire Jesse and Moira will be one of the best decisions of your life (before you commit to your “I do’s” that is)."
