Contact Moira La Plante

~ 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. 
~ If I see a dog, I consider it to be a good day. 
~ I spent the first part of the pandemic befriending the squirrels in our backyard. I've given them names. 
~ My idea of a perfect evening is a warm blanket, a good book and a glass of whiskey. 
~ I'm a meticulous notetaker. I have dozens of notebooks with funny sayings on the covers. A current favorite is "F*cking Brilliant Ideas." 
~ Jesse and I met on spring break in the Bahamas. He offered to buy me a drink. It was an all-inclusive resort.

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

Based in Boulder, Colorado. Travel to most places in Colorado is included in our packages.

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

My husband, Jesse, and I have photographed over 250 weddings since 2008.

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

We’re not big on taking standard, posey photos. We specialize in nontraditional wedding photography and everything you see on our website is real. Real weddings. Real couples. Real emotion. Our goal isn’t to simply take pretty pictures, but to create works of art that are unique to you and worthy of hanging above your mantlepiece. We limit our calendar to 20 weddings per year so we can pour every ounce of our blood, sweat and tears into each wedding.

What's the typical wedding coverage package that you offer? What is the price?

Our most popular wedding package is $7,200 and includes a full day of coverage (typically 10-12 hours, but we don't limit time), two photographers, a password-protected online gallery, high-res images with the rights to print, and a photo album.

Do you have a studio where we can meet? Do you use Skype?

No physical studio as of yet, but we have dozens of convenient meeting places all around the metro Denver area. Zoom works too.

I cannot express how highly I recommend J.La Plante Photo! There is NO one I would trust more then this dynamite husband and wife team team! The way Jesse and Moira were able to perfectly and beautifully capture our wedding day, is something I will cherish forever! Obviously their work is beyond incredible. There are not enough words in the dictionary to describe how much I love the photos they took.

Now let’s talk about how Jesse and Moira truly helped make the wedding day such a dream. They were incredible at keeping us all on track and getting every single photo I requested. They also Read More went out of their way to check in on us (bride and groom) throughout the day. I truly felt like Moira was like my wedding day mom with a camera! If I could relive my wedding day again, I would just so I could hire them again !!!

Absolutely the best team I could imagine working with for my wedding. I decided to plan my own wedding and was quickly overwhelmed. But Moria and Jesse helped me with timelines and made my day amazing. The images I got are so unique, perfect match to our personalities. There are so many great images I cannot decide which ones to print!

Jesse and Moira are more than just photographers, they are artists. Their unique style captures every couple for who they (and their family/friends) truly are, while also capturing all the emotions of the day. We started off planning a large wedding and ended up eloping and they were with us every step of the way- literally (we hiked to our elopement). We were lucky enough to get to know Jesse and Moira beyond just our wedding day and their perspective on how they curate and evolve their style, in addition to their senses of humor, only add to the wonderful experience they curate. They are, Read More hands down, the best.
