Before photography, Erika & Lanny were both professional educators. Their roots and their passion is in coaching & inspiring growth & development.

High-performance – mastering your ability to perform to potential
Natural light – seeing & exploiting it in ways you never imagined
Manufactured light – demystifying off-camera flash & re-imagining the way you create & shape light
Composition – breaking all the “rules” & freeing your mind about photography being “correct”
Moments – documenting reality to capture them authentically with compelling light & composition
Shitty locations – turning the mundane into the insane
Workflow – examining Two Mann’s entire process, start to finish
Post-production wizardry – maximizing the impact of your imagery
Critique – growing through honest, introspective critique in a safe place
… and everything else you’ve ever wanted to know about us or our photography. This wedding photography workshop is essentially a big honest window into our world; where we pour every bit of our heart & soul into transforming you into a more powerful human photographer.
