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. 

Engagements Galore!

It’s been a long long while since I have posted any engagement sittings on here!  Engagement sittings are so fun and a great way to get comfortable with your photographer before the day of your wedding.  By then, we are old pals and everything is relaxed!  I’ve had some awesome, very unique engagement sittings lately so I thought I would share! 

First, we have Erin and Harris…what a fun couple!  They are getting married in June and I had the opportunity to go to Harris’ family farm in Kennesaw to take these shots. 

Erin actually met Harris when she started taking bass guitar lessons…and Harris was her teacher!  Someone was hot for teacher!

I love these shots we grabbed around the barn…this horse was crazy!


I love the cat in the background of this one…

 Up next was Lacey and Thomas…they are tying the knot in Texas (or actually, I think their wedding was May 2nd).  Thomas called me up to do an engagement sitting since they wouldn’t be in Texas til the wedding and wanted to pictures to have there.  We only had the one day to get the shots, and unfortunately Mother Nature did not want to cooperate with our outdoor shoot.  So we improvised.  And fortunately they were up for some fun in the rain at the end of our shoot.  I love it!



From bad weather, to completely perfect weather…next up is Dana and Ben.  These cuties are getting married in October at the gorgeous Serenbe and I am so stoked about their wedding!  These two have been together (with exception to 11th grade) since the 8th grade!!!  Wow!!!  You can really tell how much they are truly soulmates by the way they look at each other.  Plus they are just the hotness.  We shot these pics out in Monroe where we found some amazing spots…

And I had to take a solo shot of Dana in the beautiful grass…hey ben, don’t forget to help check for ticks! 😉

I love it.  I said, Dana give me a sexy come hither look…she said “I don’t know how to do that!” Then blam! Whatever girl!

Up next was the awesome Amber and Blake who are also getting married in October!  Talk about your hotties!  All you guys make my job so easy…

Here we are at Vine’s Botanical Garden in Loganville..

And immediately after Amber and Blake was the hilarious Alex and Jeremy!  And boy was I excited as a little girl on Christmas when they rolled up in their 1960’s Dodge Truck!!!  I loooove vintage cars and trucks!  We got these awesome shots in and around it.  I can’t wait for their wedding at the Mary Gay House in July…they are so cute and lovey dovey!

Yay!  I’m so glad I posted these…stay tuned for some more awesome photo adventures to come!  And PLEASE leave some comments below…pwetty pwease?
