Two Workshops in One

Featuring Christian Cardona!

We’re incredibly excited to announce that we’re teaming up with world-class photographer and fellow MagMod ambassador, Christian Cardona, for a three-day, no-holds-barred wedding photography workshop that will take your off-camera flash to the next level.

This will essentially be two workshops blended into one. You’ll receive two different perspectives, two unique philosophies, and a ton of hands-on instruction from three veteran educators (Christian, Jesse and Moira).

Jesse + Moira La Plante

You probably want to know who’s piloting this ship, huh?

We are Colorado-based photographers who have been shooting weddings since 2008. We first met in the Bahamas on spring break when Jesse (allegedly) offered to buy Moira a drink at an all-inclusive resort. Shortly after that fateful trip, we moved to Colorado, started our wedding photography business and never looked back.

Jesse was named Fearless Top 100 in 2018, WPJA Artistic Guild Photographer of the Year in 2019, and ISPWP Top 50 and WPJA Top 10 in 2020. When not photographing weddings, he can be found skiing, eating copious amounts of tacos and/or working on his beer belly at one of Colorado’s many outstanding craft breweries.

A true Jane-of-all-trades, Moira has honed her problem-solving skills by working in many different arenas, from academia to atmospheric science research to entrepreneurship, before migrating to the wedding industry. When not figuring out how to do the impossible, she can usually be found with her nose in a book or devising ways to spend more time around puppies.

I have been working as a photographer for 18 years and try to have fun and make my clients have fun with me in the process. I turn their ideas and moments into photographic memories for a lifetime. I was selected by Nikon and as one of the TOP 25 Storytellers of 2015, Top 10 of the largest wedding directory in the world,, one of the best destination wedding photographers according to Brides Magazine’s London and one of the best wedding photographers in the country according to the magazine FUCSIA and the portal ZankYou for five consecutive years.
