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. 

Anna’s Surprise Gift!

This weekend I was so touched by a particular moment at Anna and Chris’ wedding I just couldn’t wait til I was done editing the whole wedding to show you!
Chris and Anna had discussed buying her a gorgeous ring on their one year wedding anniversary to accent the wedding band and engagement ring. Since they had planned on getting it a year later, Anna had NO CLUE that Chris had already saved up and bought it to give to her on their wedding day! She had no idea what was in this green bag delivered by the best man…but all of her bridesmaids did! It was so touching to see her pure joy that I was even tearing up a bit behind the lens. It’s very rare for a guy to pull off such a big surprise! Here’s the progression of her shock…anna1
And I loved almost as much, all the bridesmaids in anticipation of the ring!anna2
