Recommendations for Wedding Photographers

Hi there Pilot Family! My fiance and I are both current seniors at UP, and we are getting married in March 2019. The wedding will be at the Chapel at UP and the reception will likely be at a golf course 15 minutes away.  We know wedding photographers book up quickly, so we are trying to plan ahead. Do you have any recommendations for a wedding photographer?  Thank you in advance!

Looking for recommendations for replacing roof

My wife and I are in the market for a new roof.  Our home is located in Woodburn, OR and we would prefer to support local business from the Portland metro area.  We are having trouble even getting quotes because it seems as if everyone is so swamped with work.  We would appreciate any leads for roofers or independent contractors that would be willing to work with us before the rain comes this fall.
