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!

Wild Basin Lodge Wedding

Wedding days will go wrong. They’ll be imperfect. But with the right attitude, they can be more enjoyable and create more lasting memories than a “perfect” wedding day. Nothing could have illustrated this better than Emily and Luther’s Wild Basin Lodge wedding last weekend! The Wednesday before their wedding found me shopping for snow chains…

Brown Palace Wedding

In the midst of a small lull in weddings, we are so excited to look back at Emily and Tyler’s Brown Palace wedding from last fall! This was our first time photographing in this illustrious building, but we hope it’s far from the last. We knew we liked Emily and Tyler from the moment we…

New Year’s Eve Wedding

Most of the time when we book a December wedding, we don’t expect snow. The day inevitably ends up being 60 degrees and sunny. Last year, in particular, had been especially dry for Colorado. But at the last possible second, a snow globe settled over Estes Park, making Madelyne and Zach’s New Year’s Eve wedding…

Garden of the Gods Wedding

Anya and Ben’s Garden of the Gods wedding was so epic, it couldn’t be contained to a single day or location. Instead, we joined the couple and their guests for three days of partying at the Garden of the Gods Resort and the Pinery, both with equally beautiful – but vastly different – views of Colorado Springs.

Montana Destination Wedding

Allie and Dustin booked us for their Montana destination wedding long before the word “pandemic” landed in our daily lexicon. They wanted plenty of time to plan the ultimate blowout celebration with all their closest friends and family, so they had planned their date two years in advance. Luckily, that meant that they skipped the whole 2020 rescheduling chaos and still got the wedding of their dreams.
