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.

Caroline & Kevin: Piedmont Park Engagement

Oooooweee…I can’t begin to tell you how freezing cold Caroline & Kevin’s engagement sitting was. It had warmed up and was sunny all day, but about 30 minutes before we started shooting, the winds changed and the temp dropped drastically. I (brilliantly) forgot my coat and just about lost all feeling in my fingers but […]
