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. 



Palmetto, Georgia | Wedding Reception | Mark & Steve

I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I was when Mark Williams, an amazing interior designer in Atlanta, emailed me to see if I could shoot his wedding reception.  Mark and Steve were married in New York and decided to throw this incredibly awesome shindig for their local friends and family.  Just down the street from Serenbe in Palmetto, is the home of Gloriosa owner, Keith Robinson.  Let me just tell you…this house…oh. my. gah.  If you look up “photographer’s dream” in the dictionary you will find a picture of this property.   And the day…I think it was 90% chance of rain?  Not a drop of precipitation but all the lighting benefits of a storm.  Days like this I just feel so blessed to be able to do this job.

Oh, and how cute is this?  Instead of a “wedding cake”, Mark had the cake read “Happy Birthday” to honor his mother’s 70th.  So sweet.  Literally.

I love everything about these two.
