Why you're here


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

You’re tired of seeing the same traditional wedding photography 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.

Meet Jesse


Photojournalist. World Traveler. Taco Fiend.

I’ve been shooting weddings for 13 years. Before that, I was a professional photojournalist.


I think most traditional wedding photography is kind of uninspiring, so my brain is constantly churning to figure out how to do things a bit differently.


Skiing is my favorite pastime. We have two seasons here at J. La Plante Photo: wedding season and ski season.


If pressed, I could probably eat around 47 tacos.


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 13 years and not a day goes by that I don’t wonder just what in the hell she sees in me.


Meet Moira


Jane of All Trades. Bibliophile. Puppy Enthusiast.

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.


My goal when I set out to write this was to refrain from using any photographer bio clichés such as “I believe…” or “My passion is….”


Jesse and I met on spring break in the Bahamas. He offered to buy me a drink. It was an all-inclusive resort.


If I see a dog, I consider it a good day.


I’m an indiscriminately curious person. I’ve Googled everything from how soap works to the mechanics of butterfly migration.


Jesse taught me everything I know about photography.
