Brenda Upton Photography bio picture

Welcome

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. 



Alicia & Erik | Dockside Wedding at Home

It is always a special feeling to be included in any couple’s wedding day. But Alicia and Erik’s intimate vows in front of only immediate family and me? That feels really special. This gorgeous couple contacted me a week before the big day. What had started as a plan to exchange vows at the courthouse had slowly turned into something a bit more. They decided to have the ceremony on the dock of Alicia’s childhood home (which should probably be a wedding venue as amazing as it is). The day started out so nice…sunny but not too hot. We got some great pictures of the couple and then…as you can see below, some dark clouds started rolling in minutes before the planned ceremony time. Then the bottom dropped out. Well, the good thing about having only family at your house for a wedding? You can just wait and ride out the storm. Luckily we only had to way 30 minutes or so and the sun came out again.
Alicia and Erik, I can’t thank you enough for deciding to have me as a part of your special day. I hope you can cherish these memories forever.
