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.

Erin & Matt | Southeastern Railway Museum Engagement

Did you know there was a railway museum right here in Duluth? Old trains you can climb aboard, some of the first Marta buses, old taxis? I had no idea this hidden gem was tucked away right under my nose. That is until Erin emailed me about. She was worried that, with it being January […]
