Breckenridge, Colorado
April 12-14, 2021

Shattering wedding industry dogma and standing out in a sea of sameness.

Wedding photography doesn’t have to be boring. Once you start thinking outside the box and cultivating your own unique voice, you’ll begin to attract like-minded couples who hunger for something different from the status quo.

Easier said than done though, right? How do you separate yourself from the multitude of other wedding photographers in the business so that you’re not just grinding for a paycheck, but making a living doing something that fulfills you as a photographer and as an artist?

That’s where Iconoclasm comes in…

  • Anything else you’d like to know, photography-related or otherwise. We’re an open book.

This workshop
is for you if:

You want to stand out as a unique voice in the industry. Of course, if you want to shoot like us, we’re going to show you how we operate. But what we really want to show you is how to shoot like YOU. How to unlock your full potential and develop your own style so you feel not just good, but great about your work at the end of the day. And how to attract clients who are truly excited about your work.

This workshop
is not for you if:

You want to attend a “shoot-out” with professional models and an instructor who sets up shots so that everyone can take the same images for their portfolios. Or if you’re hoping for a styled shoot with a bunch of pretty tables with pretty sh*t on them. If this is what you’re looking for, we can direct you to a million other workshops, but for us, photography goes a lot deeper than that. 


A portion of the proceeds will be donated to and matched by the Elevations Foundation to help those displaced by the Marshall Fire in Boulder County.



  • Full 3-day workshop
  • 3 meals per day

Please note: all workshop participants are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 in order to attend.

Meet Jesse & Moira

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

Jesse and Moira La Plante are Colorado-based photographers who have been shooting weddings since 2008. They 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, the pair moved to Colorado, started their wedding photography business and never looked back.

In 2021, Jesse was named Fearless Top 50, WPJA Top 50 and ISPWP Top 100. 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. Oh, and this year, she beat Jesse in Fearless, coming in at #17 in the world. Not too shabby for a business major from Georgetown!
