                                    San Diego Wedding Photographer

I'm Tim Otto and I photograph weddings, engagement session and portraits.  I am not only technically sound with my camera but also I put my heart and soul into every photograph I take. I specialize in capturing moments, emotions and the relationships you have with family and friends. I want to create photographs that will be more beautiful than you dreamed they would be. My photographs have been described as dynamic, artistic, romantic, emotional, editorial, intimate, unique, elegant and exquisite. 

Some of my favorite locations to photograph in San Diego and its
surrounding areas are:
Hotel del Coronado, Fairmont Grand Del Mar, Estancia Hotel and
Resort, Omni La Costa Resort, The Lodge at Torrey Pines, The
Catamaran, Torrey Pines Hilton, Loews Coronado, Twin Oaks Garden
Club, Darlington House, The US Grant, Scripps Seaside Forum, Hard

                                         Temecula Wedding Photographer

Temecula is home to many great wineries. The breathtaking views, rolling
vineyards and old oak wine barrels create a rustic, old-world feel.  Here are
some of my favorites:  
Europa Village, Falkner Winery, Leoness Cellars, Thornton Winery, Ponte
Family Estate Winery, Callaway Vineyard and Winery, Wilson Creek
Winery, Monte De Oro Winery

                                       Orange County Wedding Photographer

I travel throughout Southern California to photograph events, and Orange
County is conveniently located just up the road. There are many amazing
venues in OC, including:
The Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel, Seven Degrees, St. Regis Monarch
Beach, Montage Laguna Beach, Surf and Sand Resort, The Resort at
Pelican Hill, The Waterfront Beach Resort A Hilton Hotel, Fairmont
Newport Beach, The Ranch Laguna Beach.

                                          Engagement Wedding Photographer

Engagement sessions are typically scheduled 4-8 months before the
wedding date and are a great opportunity for us to work together before
the wedding. A session usually lasts from 1-3 hours. We will visit a couple
of locations that are meaningful to you, or I have some favorite places I
can recommend.  Engagement portraits are usually informal, but
oftentimes clients will bring a couple different outfits to create different
looks, both casual and dressy.  Some of my favorite locations are:
Windansea Beach in La Jolla, La Jolla Cove, Balboa Park, Little Italy,
Coronado Centennial Park, Downtown Gaslamp, Del Mar Beach.

                                        Portrait Wedding Photographer

I enjoy documenting every stage of my clients’ lives, from the engagement
portrait to the wedding album to when they start their own families.  All of
my wedding couples automatically become part of our lifetime portrait
program, which includes no-session fees for all portraits in the future.  
These could include Maternity Photos, Newborn Photos, Holiday
Family Portraits or a 3-Generation Portrait for display in your home. I
specialize in creating custom artwork and firmly believe that photographs
do not belong on flash drives or computers but in albums and on living
room walls. I want to create heirloom art pieces that will be treasured and
pass down through generations of your family.
