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.

Mallory & Ryan: Oakhurst Farm Wedding

Mallory and Ryan are one of those couples I feel like I’ve known forever. They have this glow to them and you know they are just as genuine as they seem. Brushworx hair and makeup did such wonderful work (as always!) and everyone looked amazing. The bright and colorful flowers by Mayumi were just breath-taking. […]
