Photographing History - Hampton Roads Commercial Photographer
Jun 12, 2019 | By: Glenn Bashaw Photographer
Some real estate jobs you feel lucky about booking. In Norfolk, we have many historic buildings, and I love them. When I received a phone call from Ellen Drames of Rose and Womble Realty that she needed images of the Berryman Mansion in Smithfield, I was thrilled. The mansion was built in 1900 and was a gift to Cora Gwaltney from her husband Frank Berryman and is sometimes referred to as the Wedding Cake House for its ornate entrance.
The house has been wonderfully restored and thoughtfully updated and is so beautiful from the grandeur of the architecture of that period is prominent throughout. It sits on the Pagan river with stunning views. We took the drone for a flight to capture this picturesque location.
If you want more information you should contact Ellen Drames, this house is just waiting for it's next perfect family.
