Photographers in Birmingham, AL
Since starting The Southern Source blog almost a year ago, I have been lucky enough to work with so many creative people right here in Birmingham. It’s inspiring to connect with local business owners, entrepreneurs, and other bloggers to collaborate on special projects. A photographer is such a crucial creative to have on board when telling a story. These photographers in Birmingham, AL are some of the most talented and are at the top of their game. If you are looking for wedding, engagement, family, or any lifestyle photos, I highly recommend checking out this list below.
Since we are living in such a visually obsessed world, photographs have become an integral part of content, creation, and writing. Even if you’re not a content creator, professional photos are always nice to have! I wanted to share some of my favorite Birmingham photographers so you could see their work and read about their personalities and special talents.
Eric and Jamie Gay | Eric and Jamie Photo
Eric and Jamie Gay specialize in engagement and wedding photography. They were the first photography couple I had the opportunity to shoot with and was very interested to see how that whole “work with your spouse” thing played out. They worked superbly together and I loved their energy! You get two creative minds on one shoot, which gives the advantages of more shot ideas, quicker shoot time, and just more fun! They made me feel so comfortable in front of the camera. Check out more of their work at ericandjamiephoto.com
Rachel and Noah Ray | Iron City Photo
Another great husband and wife duo that live in Birmingham, AL are Rachel and Noah Ray. They shoot amazing film photography for weddings but are also able to produce whimsical lifestyle content for bloggers and brands in the Southeast. You may recognize some of their photos with Soca Clothing, or over on Well and Worthy Life blog, and the Life Lutzurious blog. I love the way they are able to tap into the personality of the subject and manipulate their style to meet their clients’ needs!
Leslie Hollingsworth | Leslie-Hollingsworth.com
Leslie Hollingsworth is a fine art wedding photographer based out of Birmingham, AL and has been nationally recognized for her work all over the Southeast. I was lucky enough to snag her for my wedding back in 2016, and she was such a joy to work with. She shoots it to you straight and isn’t into gimmicky photos. If you are looking for a wedding photographer in the South, I highly recommend Leslie. She worked seamlessly with my bridal party, family, and all my other vendors, as well. She has a freakishly quick turnaround time, so I’m guessing you don’t have to spend a ton of time editing when you’re just that good!
Stacey Allen | Mountain Side Photo
Stacey Allen is a lifestyle photographer based out of Birmingham, AL, and I had the joy of working with her on a photo shoot earlier this year with Bayer Properties. She is a true creative and it’s evident in the work she produces. She has more of a modern style, which I love! Check out more of her work on mountainsidephoto.com
Lindsey Drennan | Lindsey Ann Photo
Lindsey Drennan is a wedding and lifestyle photographer from Hoover, AL. She is the first person I contacted when I started up the blog and we did out first shoot together almost a year ago! She is a quiet creative with tons of talent. I love using her because she can photograph outfits, home decor, food, and dogs! (She loves pups and has the cutest golden of her own). Lindsey just started her own blog page on Instagram to document her house renovations. Check out that, and more of her work here!
