Brenda Upton Photography bio picture


Hi there!  And welcome to my blog! 

I'm Brenda, and I LOVE my job.  Being able to do something for a living that never really feels like "work" is amazing.  I am a 2005 graduate of the University of Georgia where I studied art and photography.  Since then I started digging my heels into all areas of photography, trying to find my niche.  Once I tagged along as a second shooter at a wedding with a friend, I knew I had found it.  I love that I get to be a part of such an important day in people's lives and document it for generations to pass on.

Dana & Ben: Serenbe Wedding

Sneak Peek…of some sweet Cheeks!

I’m in the midst of editing a ton of shoots and weddings, but how could I deprive you one more moment of Aubrey and her delicious cheeks! I had a strong urge to nibble on them, but I resisted. It was hard to do:) Such a cute and happy baby!

I’ve been meaning to post this wedding for quite some time now, but there never seems to be enough hours in the day! Alex and Jeremy’s wedding was back in July at the Mary Gay House in Decatur. I love this couple and their friends and family! We had an untraditional bridal party with some […]

Family Portraits

I’ve known Angela since we were probably 10 years old, playing basketball together. I was so excited when she called me up to schedule family portrait for her mom’s birthday (or was it mother’s day?). It took quite a while to get everyone’s schedule together (there are 14 of them!!) and by the time we […]
