Why you're here


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

You don’t want to sit through 90 minutes of posey newlywed portraits and you don’t need 50 shots of your dress hanging in the window. Your wedding is going to be a legendary party and you want your photos to reflect that.

Weddings for
kick-ass couples

Jesse La Plante and Moira Kennedy are husband and wife wedding photographers who have been shooting weddings since 2008. Located in Boulder, Colorado, the duo works primarily in the Rocky Mountains, but travels all over the country and abroad to shoot weddings.

Meet Jesse


Photojournalist. World Traveler. Taco Fiend.

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


I think most 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 16 foreign countries. So far…


Moira and I have been together for over 10 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.
