Welcome to the exciting world of Two-Mann Tent Photography! We are Lanny Mann and Erika Jensen. Our passion for photography was born several years ago amid glistening peaks and billowy icefields. We’ve always loved exploring the wildest places on Earth, venturing deep into the remote corners of our planet, in search of beauty, adventure, and timeless images. We used to live from one adventure to the next. Life was good. And then, our world got flip-turned upside down. Along came a baby and thus began the biggest adventure of our lives. Fast forward 2 years and we now have two litle Manns; Madelyn (3) and Timmy (1). The resulting deluge of life-changing events has taught us to see beauty in entirely new ways. We still love exploring the outdoors, especially with our little ones, but we now see that the real beauty in this world, exists within relationships. In photographing people, we’ve discovered a whole world of emotion, passion, and love. We love capturing these relationships, whether between father and son, husband and wife, or a mother and her unborn baby. Most recently, we’ve set our professional sights on bringing new meaning to the beauty and artistry of wedding photography. We are based out of Canmore, Alberta in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Our background in landscape/adventure photography has aided in our ability to creatively incorporate surrounding landscapes into our images. But most importantly, we capture the moments.
We had tones of fun capturing beautiful faces and genuine smiles (and a few pouts) during our Family Day Snow Portraits Special. We packed 10 families into one full day of outdoor winter photography. We scouted our river side location the day before our shoots in blowing snow and frigid -25 degree air. So we were delighted to awaken on Family Day to blue bird skies and much more reasonable temperatures. Despite the super short 20 minute sessions, we managed some pretty cool shots. First up were C & J and their adorable twins…
We recently had the privilege of photographing Leadstone Group Inc.‘s dynamic team of professionals for their brand new website (built and designed by Cornerstone Technologies). We set out to capture the essence of their team and the consulting and advisory services that they provide. What we saw through our lenses and interplay was a vibrant team of personable and approachable individuals, each exuding an unflinching confidence in themselves and a genuine excitement about the work they do. Notwithstanding minor challenges (read: over-zealous security staff), we managed to roll with the punches and pull off some fine images that tell the story of this super fun team and the mind-blowing business results they they achieve. The shoot took place in various business locations throughout downtown Calgary, but finished on a much more casual note. Our quest for “something more casual” led us to the legendary Unicorn pub, where we enjoyed a pint or two and photographed their smiles getting bigger and bigger. Thank you to Mark and Cameron for incorporating our images so nicely into a well designed website. And thanks Kevin, Amanda, James, Jay and Ashley for being so much fun! We’re really looking forward to working with you all again in the near future.
