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 photographer and as an artist?

That’s where Iconoclasm comes in…

  • "wonderful environment to learn in...

    Jesse and Moira's laid back yet informative personalities were exactly what I was hoping for. The two days were split between learning art/photography skills as well as the business/marketing side, which are equally as important. The venue was so cozy and friendly that it made for a wonderful environment to learn in as well as share ideas with the other classmates. I would tell anyone looking for a boost to their creative minds or wanting to know how to better their business to attend the workshop!"

    "Transparency is key to learning...

    Jesse and Moira were warm and inviting the second we arrived at the cabin. I was so impressed that they were willing to share so much about their business. They pushed us to think outside the wedding photography norms and revealed how they gained inspiration from all types of sources from famous painters to other artists in the field. "

    "To anyone on the fence about this workshop...

    GO! To have Jesse and Moira as teachers was monumental in enhancing my strengths and improving my weaknesses. Each of us got individual attention and were able to collaborate as a group. The whole weekend was not only informative but so entertaining! I will have a bond with everyone I met for a lifetime, and couldn’t be more grateful. "

  • "single best investment I made this year...

    I came into this workshop knowing that I needed to make some changes (and fast) before I completely burned out from wedding photography. I was tired of trying to stuff myself into this box of wedding photographers (and what the industry has made us think is important) when what I really want to shoot is epic and intimate moments. Through this workshop, I gained the tools and confidence I needed to make changes to my business. When you attend a workshop with Jesse & Moira, you not only are learning from two highly awarded and educated individuals, but you'll also walk away with friendships and memories to last a lifetime. We learned, we laughed, we played...and I would do it all over again in a heartbeat!"

  • "I now have an arsenal of new ideas...

    Since I found them I’ve always thought of Moira and Jesse to be masters of their craft, and this workshop proved it. Not only did I learn new artistic techniques when it comes to taking photos, I also learned a great deal of the business side of photography. Meeting and networking with other photographers was a huge plus as well. I now have an arsenal of new ideas to implement in my business, and I’m excited to use them in action."

Who we are


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 two moved to Colorado, started J. La Plante Photo and never looked back.

In 2018, Jesse was named Fearless Top 100, ISPWP Top 50 and WPJA Top 50. 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.


Dave Moss


Who's this Moss guy?

Dave Moss is a wedding photographer and business and life-design coach from Calgary, Canada. You probably are pretty familiar with that first job title, but the second one can be a bit of a mystery. That’s ok. To sum it up, he helps creative entrepreneurs (that’s you) make more money, have better systems, and live the life they want. He’s also a Business Ambassador for SLR Lounge and speaks at workshops and conferences all around the world when not hiking with his wife Abigail and dog Bowen, or drinking something (usually coffee, whisky, or beer in that order).
