2.  Choose A Location

Where Do You Shoot?  We believe that your background is as important as the lighting. We will travel to you, or you may choose to meet at a spot that we recommend. Beautiful landscapes and incredible weather are already on our list for you. Pick a location, then sit back and enjoy a great experience. Leave all the little details to us.

Whether it’s a family vacation beach portrait you are searching for, an elopement photographer, or a luxury wedding photographer, we have the experience and vision to meet your expectations. We photograph along the picturesque Alabama Gulf Coast: from Perdido Key Florida, Orange Beach Al, Gulf Shores, Ft Morgan, Fairhope, Dauphin Island, and all the areas in between. 😃

3.  Choose A Date

We photograph Monday – Sunday, by appointment only.

Choices are:

  • the Hour of Sunrise – The Golden Hour

It’s no secret that sunrise is an incredible time to photograph; any our families can attest to how majestic morning sessions are 😎. The Golden hour (that 45-ish minute window of warm, coppery light) happens twice a day; once at daybreak, and then again the hour before sunset. There’s something romantic about sunrise. Sure, I might regret the decision for 3-4 minutes when my alarm goes off at 3:30 for a 5:45 am session. But once I’m awake, and especially once we get shooting, I’ve never once heard anyone say “I wish we’d scheduled this later.” It’s ALWAYS a good decision!

  • the Hour of Sunset – The Golden Hour of Twilight

Ahh, Sunset, that warm buttery light that cascades across a technicolor sky.  There is absolutely nothing that I enjoy more in nature than a glorious sunset.  A moody, darkening sky with bursts of color and unique cloud formations… The tricky thing about sunsets, as beautiful as they are, is the timing. We start the hour of sunset so we can capture formal portraits and fold into the mix personality and fun. All this sets the stage for the last 15 minutes of that warm buttery golden light. It is worth the wait and well worth the time.

4.  Print Collections vs Digital File Collection

Print vs. Digital Files. We offer both styles of finished images. Every step is a process that is well thought out and executed with regard to great detail,

Reviews for Vacation Beach Portraits
“Once you travelled, the voyage never ends, but is played out over and over again in the quietest chambers. The mind can never break off from the journey.”
Pat Conroy
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
Mark Twain
I wanted to say THANK YOU in writing to you for a great family experience last evening at Alabama Point. Your personality was great for our group and every one of us left being very impressed and glad we chose you. Your efforts to bring little Reese from crying to smiling reflected your experience and creativity very well, but we all had a very good time. We are even more excited to see the shots when ready, and would gladly recommend others to work with you as well. Thanks again !!
The Ghosey Family
My husband and I had our very first “couple” picture taken June 27th. Jason was awesome and made it total fun! My husband is not a picture person but Jason made him so comfortable that by the end of the session he was enjoying himself. From my first phone call with Tammy I knew that we had chosen the right photographer to trust with our pictures.
The Rushton Family
My 13 yr old never gives a tooth showing smile for a camera. I managed to catch it once after a major football carry but that is the only picture I have of his beautiful smile. Tonight I think we got a few. I can’t wait to see the pictures. We couldn’t have had better weather or a more beautiful sunset either.
The VonDielingen Family
I want to personally recommend Jason and Tammy Odom. Tammy was very personable and polite on the phone and very easy to work with while scheduling the photo session. When we had our picture done Jason was awesome and did a great job with our 2 year old son. He really knows how the capture some great shots! Both are very friendly and very professional.
The Schmidt Family
We had an amazing experience with Reniassance portrait studio!!! Tam went above and beyond to ensure that we knew exactly what to do and what to expect. Communication was excellent!! And Jason was an absolutely phenomenal photographer! I have a couple of rough and rowdy boys and he did a superb job keeping their attention and capturing their beautiful personalities on camera. He was even able to keep my husbands attention, which can be even more difficult, haha. Overall fantastic experience!!! Would recommend them to anyone in the Orange Beach or Gulf Shores area!
