Being the purveyors of Vivian and Greg’s Toronto Chinese wedding photography was a documentary photographer’s dream come true! These two are just so full of life, love and good vibes, and every aspect of their wedding reflected that. Vivian’s laugh is downright infectious, and her friends know just how to pull it out of her. Vivian’s expressions alone, in fact, would have been enough to fill our frames with jubilance and our hearts with adoration. But we all got to witness her happiness in not one, not two, not three… but four different dresses! And we got to witness and photograph the stories around those dresses in not one, not two, but three different locations throughout Toronto.
Sahar and Kyle’s lakefront wedding was super chill… just like Sahar and Kyle.
Nestled on the tranquil shores of Lake Ontario, Paletta Mansion was an idyllic setting for this conjunction of two families from faraway lands. Sahar’s family travelled all the way from Iran to meet Kyle’s family, from Woodstock, Ontario, for the very first time. It was our honour to be there with our cameras.
Sahar and Kyle, thank you so much for bringing us in to tell your beautiful story.
Here are a few of our favs…
Before photography (and kids), we were both professional educators. Our roots and passion has always been in coaching and inspiring growth & development in others. This is why we’re continually striving to make our wedding photography workshop better and better. It’s grown and improved to the point that we feel it deserves a new, improved name.
Introducing… METANOIA – A workshop by Two Mann Studios
A noun of Greek origin, Metanoia (me-ta-noi-a) describes “a fundamental change of thinking; a transformative change of heart.” We couldn’t think of a better word to describe the heart & soul of this workshop… what we’re aspiring to achieve.
This Profoto A1 review is our very first product review. It is unauthorized, unsolicited and unfiltered.
Erika and I were honoured to have been chosen to help launch the new Profoto A1, but we can not, have not, and will never endorse anything that we don’t actually use ourselves and actually love. After testing the A1’s (see below) we have decided to replace all our old lights. This is why…
At the heart of every great relationship, is trust. And trust is what brought us (and our cameras) to Rana and Madi’s Montreal Science Centre wedding in Quebec. Madi himself, is a highly sought-after professional wedding photographer (no pressure). Rana is a professional interior designer (yes please). Together, their combined vision for their wedding was ambitious, to put it mildly, especially considering that they took it all on themselves!
The twists of fate and circumstance that brought Allyson and Ryan’s search for Rimrock Resort Hotel wedding photography to us, are wonderful and mysterious. We’ve learned that being able to truly “see” our couples, their loved ones, and their stories, is critical to being able to tap into the meaningful, storytelling imagery that inspires us most. We “saw” Allyson and Ryan! And we loved what we saw! Our mutual roots in sports and Canada’s North West Territories, made it so easy for us to just fall right into their relatable story.
On the morning of Ashley and Dan’s winter wedding in the Canadian Rockies, we all awoke in our cozy chalets at Emerald Lake Lodge to a winter wonderland. The surrounding mountain landscape was cloaked in a white blanket of snow, while big fluffy flakes fell incessantly from the sky. By first light, Dan was already outside shovelling out the benches he’d dug into the snowbanks for their outdoor ceremony on the frozen shores of Emerald Lake. That’s right, outdoor ceremony! Ashley and Dan were absolutely determined to have their mountain ceremony outdoors, amid the most beautiful of mountain backdrops, no matter what Mother Nature threw at them! And they would have, except for one tiny little scientific fact… water freezes and thaws at 0℃.
Our first wedding in India was not just any wedding (as no wedding ever is). It was the highly-anticipated wedding of Joseph Radhik and Devika Narain, two of the hottest wedding professionals in India. Joseph; a legendary wedding photographer, and Devika; a legendary wedding designer. But that’s not what made their wedding legendary. Joseph and Devika are literally overflowing with contagious optimism and unfiltered love for each other, their friends, and their family. Their energy (and that of their families), is what catapulted this celebration to legendary proportions.
