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. 

Nancy & Nick: St. Brigid’s, Country Club of the South

We had such a blast at Nancy and Nick’s wedding, that we almost forgot that we weren’t guests..busting a move on the dancefloor:) Well, besides the fact that we had 15 lbs. of camera gear on us that is! The whole day went so smoothly and the weather was gorgeous. You could just tell how close the families were and the love was just radiating! We started at the Country Club of the South were the couple were getting ready.
One of the most beautiful dresses I’ve ever seen.
