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.

550 Trackside Wedding | Lawrenceville, Georgia | Courtney & Josh

I LOVE 550 Trackside in Lawrenceville! It is such a hidden gem, right by the railroad tracks in the downtown area. Courtney was even able to get in earlier in the week to do her bridal portraits so we had the whole place to ourselves. And everything came together beautifully on the wedding day. Here […]
