Wilder Residence

April 11, 2020

This is quite the change from my normal content. I met Peter & Dianna over 10 years ago when I photographed their wedding. We bonded and have stayed in touch over the years as they began their family. I remember a few years go as we were headed downtown for portraits, we drove by the Wilder House.

Peter and Dianna asked me, "What do you think?"

"Buy it." I said without stopping to think.

They did. I'm so glad they did. They're both insanely talented architects and I knew their collective vision would make the old house a dream, while keeping the original character in tact.
