NumPy's FFT supports an "axis" argument, so you can do

In [29]: own = np.array([[1+0j, 2+0j], [3+0j, 4+0j]])

In [30]: fft_step1 = np.fft.fft(own, axis=0)

In [31]: fft_step2 = np.fft.fft(fft_step1, axis=1)

In [32]: fft_step2
array([[ 10.+0.j,  -2.+0.j],
       [ -4.+0.j,   0.+0.j]])

In [33]: np.fft.fft2(own)
array([[ 10.+0.j,  -2.+0.j],
       [ -4.+0.j,   0.+0.j]])
