Bride and Groom Under the Stars | Sanctuary Golf Course Wedding | Denver Wedding Photographer | J. La Plante Photo

Sanctuary Golf Course Wedding

Perhaps one of our biggest honors is to be asked to photograph the wedding of another event professional. After all, these people know what makes an amazing event. They’ve worked with some of the best vendors around and for them to reach out and choose us…well, it’s kind of a big deal. Which is why…

Tapestry House Microwedding

There are so many things I love about Alli and Shawn and their Tapestry House wedding, I don’t even know where to begin. Maybe with the most obvious? They feel the same way we do about white dresses in that they’re not a requirement for a wedding. Alli actually told me about the dress she…

Groom and Groom Under the Stars | Aspen Meadows Resort Wedding | Aspen Wedding Photographer | J. La Plante Photo

Aspen Meadows Resort Wedding

When we showed up for Andy and Mate’s Aspen Meadows Resort wedding last weekend, we had a secret. We’d been let in on a not-so-little surprise that Andy had arranged for Mate. Now, Jesse and I are no strangers to wedding surprises. From over-the-water bungalows to Big Buck Hunter to shark-themed first looks, I thought…

Lionsgate Wedding

If I were to write a checklist on how to personalize your wedding – not what the wedding industrial complex tells you and a million other couples is “unique,”¬†but what you can actually do to personalize your wedding – I would use Jess and Chris’s Lionsgate wedding as an example. How do you feel about…

New York Destination Wedding

I never went to summer camp growing up. Montana’s not really a summer camp kind of place. I’ve had friends who went to camp, first as campers and later as counselors. They have lifelong connections to the place and the people they met there. The way they talk about it has always made me wonder…

Pine Creek Cookhouse Wedding

This wedding season has been the year of white whales! First, we finally made it to the Stanley Hotel in May. Then we got to take a couple up Trail Ridge Road. And last weekend, we were fortunate to photograph Marissa and Abe’s Pine Creek Cookhouse wedding, just outside of Aspen. How did the Ashcroft…

Bride and Groom Sunset Portrait | 3M Curve Wedding | Rocky Mountain National Park Wedding Photographer | J. La Plante Photo

3M Curve Wedding

For the second time in four days, Jesse and I found ourselves driving the familiar road up to Estes Park. This time, we were headed into the mountains for Kaylena and Dustin’s 3M Curve wedding inside Rocky Mountain National Park. Kaylena and Dustin live in Oklahoma, where Dustin is a farmer. Due to his schedule,…

Bride and Groom in Rocky Mountain National Park | Black Canyon Inn Wedding | Estes Park Wedding Photographer | J. La Plante Photo

Black Canyon Inn Elopement

I doubt it’s a surprise to anyone that my favorite thing about living in Colorado is all the amazing views of the mountains. There are far too many epic vistas to count. With each new wedding, however, we do our best to find a spot we’ve never photographed before. Jean Marie and Jamie’s Black Canyon…

Bride and Groom Portrait | Lionsgate Wedding | Boulder Wedding Photographer | J. La Plante Photo

Lionsgate Event Center Wedding

A month ago when we got together for Kacey and Chris’s RiNo engagement session, the temps in Colorado were solidly in the perfect-for-rooftop-beers range. Last weekend for their Lionsgate Event Center wedding? Just a bit toastier, at a whopping 100 degrees. But in spite of the heat, Kacey and Chris managed to stay impressively cool….

Bride and Groom Hiking in the Mountains | Lily Lake Wedding | Estes Park Wedding Photographer | J. La Plante Photo

Lily Lake Wedding

In the span of a week, Colorado went from snow to 90-degree weather. So Jesse and I were excited to escape the heat of the city for Jamie and Dane’s Lily Lake wedding in Rocky Mountain National Park last weekend. Lily Lake is one of our favorite spots in Estes Park. We first discovered it…

Bride and Groom in the Snow | Tenmile Station Wedding | Breckenridge Wedding Photographer | J. La Plante Photo

TenMile Station Wedding

Jesse and I have traveled extensively. One of the things that’s stuck with me throughout our wanderings is that every single state thinks that they have claims on the phrase, “Don’t like the weather? Wait five minutes.” I’m here to say that Colorado has officially cemented its rightful ownership. Just ask anyone who attended Kristin…

Bride and Groom in Overwater Bungalo | St Lucia Wedding | Destination Wedding Photographer | J. La Plante Photo

St. Lucia Destination Wedding

Sometimes things go “wrong” at weddings. Most of the time, it’s little things, like the ring bearer refusing to walk down the aisle when it’s go-time. Other times, it’s bigger things, like an eye infection, a sister with a broken leg, and a rogue sea urchin. But the true test of a couple is how…
