RECENT WEDDINGS

Colorado and Beyond

There are so many wedding photographers in Colorado, how do you even begin to go about selecting one for your wedding? The most obvious place to start is by viewing portfolios on the various photographers’ websites and Instagram feeds. But a portfolio is a collection of the absolute best individual images taken over the course of a photographer’s entire career. The more effective approach just might be to take some time to look through photographers’ recent weddings to get a sense of what they’ve been creating lately.

We’ve been shooting for the better part of two decades here at J. La Plante Photo and we’re constantly tweaking our style and our approach – not only our approach to shooting weddings, but also our approach to editing wedding photos as well. Our recent work bears little resemblance to the weddings we shot when we were first starting out all those years ago. That’s why we’ve taken the time to put together this collection of our most recent weddings for you to quickly see what we’ve been creating lately. We want to give you the clearest picture of what our shooting style looks like at the moment to better help you decide if we would be a good fit for your wedding.

Take some time to look through the galleries below and feel free to reach out to us directly if you have any questions for us or if you would like to check our availability for your wedding date. We’re just an email, phone call or text away!

Also, if you have a specific type of wedding in mind, feel free to take a look through our other archives:
Mountain Weddings
City Weddings
Destination Weddings
Elopements and Small Weddings

Finally, be sure to check out the galleries of our most recent Alt Sessions (our answer to traditional engagement photo sessions) as well. Cheers!

Hotel Colorado Wedding

The Hotel Colorado is known for its many famous guests. From Teddy Roosevelt, who stayed often enough that it became known as the “White House of the West,” to the unsinkable Molly Brown, to notorious gangster Al Capone. At the beginning of this month, it added Kristen and David and their wedding guests to the…

Telluride Wedding

Ciara and Jonathan’s Telluride wedding had all the things I love to see in a wedding. Not the details or the view (although those were gorgeous, anyway). After all, when the cake has been devoured and the flowers have withered and the last song has played, the things that remain from a wedding day are…

Sanctuary Wedding

Most of the time, in Colorado, rain in the forecast means that you need to postpone the ceremony by about 15 minutes for a torrential downpour to do its thing and move on. Then all you have to do is get the chairs wiped down and you’re good to go! But for Michelle and Joe’s…

Dunafon Castle Wedding

When we first heard about Narcissa and Bassil’s Dunafon Castle wedding, we were already familiar with and fans of the venue’s vibes. I love telling people about the Dunafon Castle, especially where it’s located. It’s such a surprise. Right in the middle of a windy mountain road is a castle surrounded by lush grounds, waterfalls,…

Redstone Inn Wedding

One of the best things about owning your own business is getting to make the decisions. We had officially closed our books for 2022 weddings when Shelley and Jonathan reached out to see if we were available for their Redstone Inn Wedding. We had the date open and had never been to Redstone before, so…

Denver Vow Renewal

Most weekends, Jesse and I get to hang out with our clients at the beginning of their journey together. But for Natalie and Jay’s Denver vow renewal, we had the chance to spend the day with a couple who are 20 years into their adventure (with many more to go). Now, if you’ve spent more…
