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.
