Choose from Three Options

During photography walking tours, City of Savannah–certified guides lead groups through districts dotted with photogenic architectural gems. As they dish historic facts and anecdotes, guides also provide tips for capturing memorable shots with point-and-shoot or DSLR cameras. Choose from the following three daily tours, all of which cover about one mile in 90 minutes:

  • $19 for The River Front and Factors Walk tour (a $40 value), which leaves from Emmet Park at 10 a.m., weaving through the cobbled alleyways of the historic district that once housed the city’s cotton exchange.
  • $19 for The Luxurious Squares and Forsyth Park tour (a $40 value), which leaves from Lafayette Square at 1 p.m., and passes by the scenic Forsyth Park, as well as mansions that showcase 18th-century Greek and Roman revival architecture.
  • $19 for The Founding Squares and Early Savannah tour (a $40 value), which leaves from Reynolds Square at 4 p.m., and passes by the historic domed city hall, the city market, and a pair of monuments.

Capturing Savannah

As charmingly anachronistic as trolleys may be, they move too fast for Pablo Aguilar, one of Capturing Savannah’s co-founders. So to capture the colors, lines, and ornamentation of Savannah’s 19th-century architectural wonders, he prefers to walk, leading groups on tours that blend the historical entertainment of a city tour with the skill set of a photography safari.

While ducking into 200-year-old nooks along Factors Walk, a onetime commerce area, Pablo and co-founder Brittany Nelson teach aspiring shutterbugs to take photos with “a clear purpose behind the shot.” The pair coach tour members to find aesthetically pleasing angles and to thoughtfully compose their images before shooting. Along with technique, they try to instill “a sense of nostalgia” in each photographer. “It’s all about the feeling,” Pablo says, “expressing the same feeling they felt [when they took] the photograph.”

Pablo and Britt previously lived in New York, Chicago, Austin, New England, and the Middle East, but both have fallen for the vibrancy and artistry Savannah draws from its history. For a glimpse of the city as seen through a lens at foot-speed, Capturing Savannah offers a gallery of Pablo and Britt’s tour photos.
