About MeFrom JLaPlante.com (my wedding photo website):
I’ve worked as a professional photographer for more than a decade. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in photojournalism and started out in the newspaper industry. During that time, I shot everything from criminal court trials to Detroit Pistons games (I’m originally from Michigan); structure fires to beauty pageants; congressional debates to high school football games on Friday nights. Every day was a new challenge; every assignment a new learning opportunity. My time as a photojournalist taught me to be resourceful and to think on my feet, which has proven invaluable for wedding photography.
In the summer of 2008, I started shooting weddings on the side and loved the freedom that I found in it. The idea of being able to make a living in photography without having to go to a “nine-to-five” job excited me. When my wife, Moira, and I moved to Colorado that fall, I decided to make wedding photography my full-time career; we started J. La Plante Photo and never looked back.
When I’m not behind the lens, I’m probably skiing or concert-going (especially at Red Rocks). Or shooting pool or playing racquetball. I’m a craft beer nerd, a movie buff, an amateur screenwriter and an avid reader of both fiction and non-fiction alike. And I love to travel. I’ve been to 15 foreign countries and 49 United States (Alaska is my white whale.) I drove all over the American West before deciding to settle in Colorado, where I immediately fell in love with the state’s blend of urban and outdoor lifestyles. The proximity of Denver to the mountains felt too good to be true and now, seven years later, it still feels that way. I can’t imagine a more perfect setting for a photographer.
