I met these two at Alana’s sister’s wedding — you can see Natalie and Orlando’s awesome intimate wedding here — and could sense their magnetism and connection to each other immediately. At the time Alana had thrown her arm around me and declared, “When I get married, I want you to be my photographer!” I said I would cross my fingers and was completely thrilled to get a call from her a year later saying she was engaged. What I love so much about Alana and her sister Natalie is that they are very close sisters, yet so very different. Their weddings reflected that. Natalie had an intimate wedding that was followed by a gourmet cooking lesson at the amazing Cookhouse in San Francisco. Alana and Tyson’s wedding took place in the Sonoma backyard of a family friend, complete with a fun and crazy dance party, paper maiche art that doubled as a pinata, and the best off-the-cuff first dance I’ve ever seen. Alana, the most relaxed bride ever, was lounging on a bed in her wedding dress and giggling unconcernedly with her bridesmaids literally moments before she walked down the aisle. Loved every moment of this one.
