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. 

Sapelo Island Wedding | Reynold’s Mansion | Jayne & Josh

This blog post has been a long time coming. I knew that it was going to take a while because it would be so hard to narrow down the best images…because honestly all of the images from this wedding are my favorite of all time! So, basically I am just going to post a billion. You’re welcome.

This wedding was so special to me in so many ways. It was the wedding of my second shooter and good friend, Jayne! It was located on one of the most GORGEOUS and secluded islands in Georgia, Sapelo Island. And it is where my boyfriend, Patrick asked me to marry him! It was such a surprise and just the perfect place for our engagement!

We stayed with Jayne and Josh and her closest family and friends at the Reynold’s Mansion. This place is amazing. If you have never been, it should be on your bucket list. The whole weekend was filled with so much love and looking back through these images is taking me right back there. I am so happy for my friend and so happy she chose me to come along to capture this amazing time in her life.

And by the way, how STUNNING is she???!?? Radiant!
