    Jesse and Moira

    Hi there. I’m Jesse, the photographer. That’s me on the left. And on the right is my assistant/second photographer, Moira. We've been shooting weddings together in the Denver Boulder area since 2008.

    Earlier in life, I was a professional photojournalist, so naturally, my approach to wedding photography is photojournalistic in style. I use a ‘fly on the wall’ method for capturing all the candid moments that make your wedding unique.

    Moira’s background is in event planning, so she has an exceptional command of wedding day logistics. And hey, she’s a pretty darn good photographer, too.

    Our business philosophy is quality over quantity and, as a result, we limit our schedule to 20 weddings per year. It can be easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of a busy wedding season, but capping the quantity of weddings really helps us to focus on the quality of our work.

    Thanks for taking the time to check out our website. Be sure to browse our Denver Boulder wedding photography gallery, read through our FAQs and testimonials, and take a look at our photo packages. Finally, if you have any questions, or would like to check our availability, contact us directly.

    We’d love to hear from you!

  • Testimonials

    University of Colorado Wedding

    Jesse & Moira are a warm, friendly & professional team. They responded to all of my emails promptly. Well before my wedding day they compiled a list of my family members & bridal party & talked to me about how I envisioned the day going. By the week of my wedding, I could happily forget about everything photography related & focus on everything else.
    ~ Anne & Ken

    Boulder Denver Wedding

    We were instantly at ease with Jesse and Moira both--they complement each other's personalities well--Jesse is more the quiet & brilliant artist who prefers to focus on the work as much as possible. Moira is the public relations part of the team--she always knew just what to say & is a superb listener, even mind-reader at times!
    ~ Julie & Kim

    Boulder Denver Wedding

    Jesse and Moira are awesome! I get really nervous when I get my picture taken, but they both have such great personalities, & they really put you at ease during your wedding.
    ~ Ashley & Nick

    Boulder Denver Wedding

    These two know how to flow around each other so well, & they have such a knack for being one step [or] one idea ahead. I'm glad I didn't choose anyone else for my wedding photography. They are super down to earth, funny, & 100% professional when it comes down to getting key shots, making sure I had everything I wanted.
    ~ Megan & Henry

    Cheyenne Wedding

    When I saw my photos for the first time, it actually brought tears to my eyes....they were absolutely perfect! There is just something about Jesse's photography that is so unique, amazing and beautiful! We are so lucky to have such fantastic photos to help us remember our big day for years to come!

  • Frequently Asked Questions

    Q: I’m interested in booking you for my wedding. What’s the next step?
    A: First, contact us to check our availability for your wedding. If we have your date open, we’ll set up a meeting to get to know each other better. We’ll discuss your wedding day, show you a bunch of photos, answer any questions you might have, and ultimately, find out if we’re a good fit.

    Q: What do you require to hold my date?
    A: A thirty percent down payment (fifty percent for destination weddings) and a signed contract are required at the time of booking to hold your wedding date. After that, we’re all set to go!

    Q: How would you describe your style?
    A: I’m a photojournalistic wedding photographer. Shooting weddings is very similar to shooting events for newspapers, and much of the technique I developed as a professional photojournalist has carried over to my wedding photography style.

    Q: My wedding is in the mountains. How much extra will you charge for travel?
    A: Nothing. Whether you’re having your wedding in Denver, Aspen, or San Francisco, all travel expenses are included in a flat rate.

    Q: I don’t see a wedding package that fits my needs. Can you work with me?
    A: Certainly. Give us a call or shoot us an email and we’ll customize a package for you!

    Q: How soon will I receive the photos after my wedding?
    A: You’ll receive your full-resolution digital images within 1-2 weeks of your wedding. If you’re getting a photo album and/or metal print, they will be ready 3-4 weeks after your wedding.

    Q: May I make my own prints?
    A: Absolutely. You’ll receive a printing release along with your images, which will allow you to make prints without having to go through us.

    Q: What if I have a different question?
    A: Contact us directly; we’d be happy to chat and answer any questions you have!
