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. 

Emily & Russ- Smoke Rise

The day of Emily and Russ’ wedding was very foggy!  It was fitting that they got married at a Church called “Smoke Rise”!  Despite the fog, it was such a great day and the church was packed out to see the lovely couple tie the knot.  It was very nice for me, since I live about half a mile from this church!  :)

Some detail-iscious details…

Shoe shot!

Hanging with the ladies beforehand

I loved this detail, Emily’s awesome belt

I loved these shots of Emily’s mom helping her with the veil

Emily’s flowers were gorgeous, here she is seeing them for the first time
The gorgeous bride

And her gorgeous Bridesmaids

And of course, Russ!

And his groomsmen

And a crazy mix up of both!  What can I say, I loved these stairs:)
