Boettcher Mansion Wedding

On our drive up to Kelly and Nick’s Boettcher Mansion wedding on the top of Lookout Mountain, we were a little concerned that we wouldn’t have the views of the mountains we were hoping for. The day was chilly, considering the 90-degree temps we’ve been having all summer, and the mountain was blanketed by clouds….

Crooked Willow Farms Wedding

Kirsten and Mike are a beautiful anomaly. They’re charming and friendly, but could easily kick your ass. They don’t call attention to themselves, yet you can’t help but notice them. And they’re just as comfortable wielding a bow as they are riding a horse. Their Crooked Willow Farms Wedding was no different. Kirsten and Mike…

Vail Mountain Wedding

Jesse and I woke up bright and early to finish our sojourn into the mountains for our second wedding of the weekend. The drive was gorgeous and we both reflected on how lucky we are to live in such a beautiful state. Vail was bustling with the GoPro Games, which made some of our photo…

Denver Chalk Art Engagement

Our couples hire us for many reasons. They like the color and emotion in our images. Or the different angles. Or how we incorporate the environment. But what we hear most often is that they were drawn to us because our photos looked unlike others they’d seen. All this is thanks to opportunities like P…

Off the Clock: Portugal

Moira and I travel a lot for weddings, but we also do our best to fit at least one personal trip into our schedule each year. It had been a while since we ventured outside of North America (New Zealand in 2009), so we sat down this winter and opened up Kayak Explore to scan…

Chief Hosa Lodge Wedding

Catherine’s a girl who knows what she wants and goes after that, and that’s something I hold in the highest regard. Her persistence was evident in the many stories shared at Catherine & Kacey’s Chief Hosa Lodge wedding. And even though it was snowy and cold outside, the lodge was warmed by the fire and…

Fox Theatre Detroit Wedding | Destination wedding photographer | J La Plante Photo

Behind the Scenes

We’ve photographed weddings for nearly nine years, and during that time we’ve collected hundreds upon hundreds of “behind the scenes” candid shots of ourselves working. Whether taken by me or Moira or by an assistant or an aspiring photographer who came along to “shadow” us, these photos always seem to offer a unique perspective into…

Mixed Martial Arts Engagement

Kirsten and Mike’s mixed martial arts engagement session was a wonderfully collaborative experience. As owners of and coaches at MMA gym The Training Camp, it was a no-brainer to highlight that aspect of their life during their engagement shoot. But we also had an idea that had been simmering for a while and suspected that they…

Buena Vista Engagement

Colorado is such a beautiful place. Every day, we thank our lucky stars that we have the good fortune to live in this Rocky Mountain paradise. We could spend every minute of every day photographing this state and still not find all the breathtaking views. Don’t even get me started on the weather! We experienced…
