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.

Genevieve and Daniel’s wedding day at Foxhall Resort in Douglasville, Georgia didn’t exactly go quite as planned. When you spend months upon months planning your dream wedding and all the details you agonize over, you never expect a food allergy to come into play.
