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. 



Foundry at Puritan Mill Wedding | All Saints Episcopal | Molly + Doug

Molly and Doug’s January wedding at the Foundry at Puritan Mill had all the right ingredients.  Unseasonably warm weather, a relaxed bride and groom, tons of family and friends and amazing venues.  We started the day at Molly’s childhood home in Buckhead.  I love love love shooting at childhood homes because it gives me such a peek at who the bride is, her favorite doll, trophies, framed photographs of her playing golf as a kid.  Tangible trinkets of someone else’s memories.

The whole day was wonderful and I’m so glad I got to know Molly and Doug and all their family and friends.  How blessed am I?

2013-02-01_050 One thing to note, if you are thinking about getting married here…they do not allow photographers to be in the sanctuary during the ceremony.  We were allowed to shoot only through a crack in the door!  2013-02-01_051 2013-02-01_052 2013-02-01_053 2013-02-01_054 2013-02-01_055 2013-02-01_056 2013-02-01_057 2013-02-01_058 2013-02-01_059 2013-02-01_060 2013-02-01_061 2013-02-01_062 2013-02-01_063 2013-02-01_064 2013-02-01_065 2013-02-01_066 2013-02-01_067 2013-02-01_068 2013-02-01_069 2013-02-01_070 2013-02-01_071 2013-02-01_072 2013-02-01_073 2013-02-01_074 2013-02-01_075 2013-02-01_076 2013-02-01_077 2013-02-01_078 2013-02-01_079 2013-02-01_080 2013-02-01_081 2013-02-01_082 2013-02-01_083 2013-02-01_084 2013-02-01_085 2013-02-01_086 2013-02-01_087 2013-02-01_088 2013-02-01_089 2013-02-01_090 2013-02-01_091 2013-02-01_092 2013-02-01_093 2013-02-01_094
