In spite of the fact that the menu at McMenamins is pretty much the same at every location, I do love this local monopoly on cool social venues. The art is fun, the grounds are always interesting to explore, the gardeners have a great time, and it's fascinating to see old spaces infused with new life.
So taking photographs of a wedding--like the one above, at Portland's McMenamins Edgefield--is always fun.
After the wedding ceremony, I heard Marcus telling a friend: "Whenever I started to choke up, I just looked across the room at this painting of Saddam playing the bagpipe, and I relaxed."
I'll never look at that painting in the same way again.

Now that the rain has passed, it's time for outdoor senior portraits in Portland!. Until more rain comes. It's been a strange summer.
I don't think this is why they hired me, but Marissa's family has a schnauzer named Fritz. It was both strange and funny to hear people calling "Come here Fritz! Come! Good boy!" and know they weren't talking to me.
