Callaway Plantation

The Callaway Plantation is a living history museum and restoration area in Washington, Georgia. The plantation is a complex portraying life in the American South from the late 1700s through the turn of the century. Callaway brings history to life in the three restored homes, barns, other outbuildings, and fields.

Parker Callaway started building the Greek Revival home found on the site but died before it was completed. Parker's son Aristides finished it in 1869. The family occupied the home from 1869 until 1910. The granddaughter of Aristides Callaway deeded the property to the City of Washington in the 1960s. A panorama below will give you a great view of the plantation.

that the Callaways preferred Coke over Pepsi!

Patricia Torres & Jonathan Simu's Wedding

I've been excited about showing this couple's wedding portraits ever since I created them on their wedding day. I just think Patricia and Jonathan are one of those attractive couples that leave an impression on your mind that forces you to smile. It seems their personalities really shine when in front of the camera and you always end up with great images. I really enjoy looking at the following portraits of Patricia and Jonathan's day. I hope you will enjoy them, too.
