About Jesse La Plante:I've worked as a professional photographer for more than a decade. I have a Bachelor's Degree in photojournalism and started out in the newspaper industry. My time as a photojournalist taught me to be resourceful and to think on my feet, which has proven invaluable for wedding photography.
In 2008, I started shooting weddings on the side and absolutely loved it. I was able to visit new places, meet new people, and was granted a very important and personal role in what was arguably the most joyful day of their lives. Plus, I started getting a ton of compliments on my work and how it was different from typical wedding photography. People would tell me that they could spot one of my photos from a mile away without having to be told who the photographer was - that I was beginning to cultivate a very specific style. So when my wife, Moira, and I moved to Colorado that fall, I decided to make wedding photography my full-time career; we started J. La Plante Photo and never looked back.
Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?
I'm just a few miles east of Boulder, in Lafayette, Colorado. I love to travel, so there are no added fees. Whether you’re having your wedding in Denver, Aspen, or San Francisco, all travel expenses are included in a flat rate.
