And now, 186 savoury wedding portraits from 12 countries on 4 continents…
Join us for an entertaining morning (or evening) of FREE critiques and fun behind-the-scenes photos and stories from ever-terrifying wedding ceremonies around the world. We’ll briefly explain our approach, share some horror stories, show you some behind-the-scenes photos, a couple before/after edits, and finish off with some ferociously honest critiques of your work (submit your ceremony photos here). We’ll also be taking live questions, which will probably send us off into all kinds of unknown tangents.
Tune in live, December 2nd at 10:00 am MST (UTC-07) in our Two Mann Workshops group.
We hope to see you there.
Here’s 100 ceremony photos from the trenches…
The anticipatory moments leading up to a wedding can be hectic, emotional, hilarious, and downright ridiculous. Documenting it all, can be a challenging adventure, to say the least.
Join us tomorrow, November 16th at 11:00 am MST (UTC-07) in our Two Mann Workshops group, for FREE critiques and a deep dive into the nuanced perplexities of ‘getting-weddy photography.’
Tune in (and submit your getting-ready photos, if ya dare 🙂 right here > > Up Your Getting-Ready Game.
We hope to see you there.
And for now, 100 getting-ready photos from the trenches…
Jess and Travis’ wedding was made for Two Mann; and photography’s not the half of it.
Blood, sweat, and tears imbue the peculiar forces that brought us all together atop a wild mountain in the middle of a global pandemic.
Our 2019 adventures in wedding photography gifted us extraordinary experiences with extraordinary people.
These 2019 numbers made possible by a whole lot of trust from a whole lot of people:
123,000 km traversed across 4 continents and 5 oceans.
10,300 hand-crafted photos delivered.
12 sold out workshops in 8 countries on 4 continents (alumni from 42 countries).
11 more Oscars from Fearless Photographers.
9 countries travelled by plane, train, automobile, bicycle, kayak, canoe, ski, and paraglider.
8 keynote performances in 6 countries on 4 continents.
7 diverse weddings celebrated in 5 countries.
2 kids world-schooled through 5 countries across 4 continents.
1 epic Alumni Reunion.
Below are just some of our (and your) favourite wedding photos from this past year.
Charmi Peña is one of our photography heroes. Heck, she’s one of our human heroes. Hence, when she advised her family to trust Two Mann Studios with the memories of Jena and Sameer’s multicultural wedding, we were honoured; then anxious; then terrified; then, ultimately, rewarded with the gratifying pleasure of documenting a beautiful union of two wonderful families. Even though Charmi was tasked with recommending the photographers who’d shoulder this responsibility, Jena and Sameer and every one of their family members welcomed us right in like trusted friends. We were humbled, start to finish, by their unfettered love for one another, and oblivious trust in us to commemorate it.
Freewill is an illusion. Or it’s not. Either way, strange and mysterious forces are at work beyond our wildest comprehension.
Case in point, the miraculous entanglement of external and internal forces that willed Lyndsay and Jason’s lives together (and Erika and mine somehow into that mix). Imagine the labyrinthine brew of coincidences that conspired to compel Lyndsay and Jason to mutually, fatefully swipe right. Or the chronic dating mishaps and near-misses that must have transpired to leave Jason, despite relentless efforts, conspicuously single after 35 years of bachelorhood (to say nothing of Lyndsay’s perplexing eligibility).
Drake the Cat knew something was up. There was a special energy in his cute little home that morning. Not only were Madeleine and Katie spending an inordinate amount of time getting ready (as in, any amount greater than probably 60 seconds), but four peculiar humans had descended upon his territory; two armed with hair and makeup brushes (Blush and Coco), and two with cameras and lenses (Erika and me). But Drake was cool with it, because Madeleine and Katie were cool with it. More than cool with it, they were beaming.
Before plunging wholly into anything – love, marriage, sparkling turquoise water – one should consider the depths, or shallows, of what lurks beneath the shimmering surface. Were that advice rocket science, Krystal’s calculations would have been impeccable. But alas, rocket science has little to do with impulsive matters of the heart and soul. Particularly, when emboldened by friends, with spiked coffee kicking in, and the Caribbean sun sparkling off a tantalizing infinity pool with a narrow parapet calling out for an inverted, split-leg handstand. Krystal executed flawlessly. A perfect T of poised muscular tension, as symmetrical as planetary orbit. Athletic, gymnastic poetry. For a moment, time and gravity stood still. Of course, like the bonafide rocket scientist she is (astrobiologist turned photographer, technically), Krystal had a plan for controlled atmospheric reentry, decent, and landing. She would splashdown into the waters behind her like a reentry capsule off the shores of Cape Canaveral. What could possibly go wrong… apart from everything?
