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!

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…

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…

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….

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 First Look | St Vrain Wedding | Boulder Wedding Photographer | J. La Plante Photo

St. Vrain Wedding

When Shelby first reached out to me to talk about her St Vrain Wedding, she warned me that she and Brian were going to do things a bit differently. Their wedding wasn’t going to be “typical.” But Jesse and I long ago left behind the idea that there’s a right or wrong way to do…

Bride and Groom Portrait | Stanley Hotel Wedding | Estes Park Wedding Photographer | J. La Plante Photo

Stanley Hotel Wedding

I knew I liked Eden and Cade before we ever met them in person. After all, how many people are willing to meet two complete strangers in a remote location, over 1,000 miles from home? (Personally, I’d be worried that I was being lured into an elaborate horror film plot…but I also tend to have…

Aspen Wedding

Aspen is gorgeous, but it’s not exactly the easiest place to get to. And in March, when much of the country is finally reveling in warmer temperatures, Aspen gets snow. So how do you convince more than 100 of your friends and family to make the hike and brave the weather for your Aspen wedding?…
