About Tim Otto
Based in San Diego, Servicing all of Southern California and available for assignments world wide
I have been photographing for over 20 years but the last 15 have been devoted to weddings, engagement sessions and family portraits. I can’t imagine doing anything else. I truly love what I do and I aspire to produce the finest photography I am capable of without compromise. Creating photographs that you love is priceless. I was drawn to wedding photography and telling the story of the day by capturing the personalities, emotions and the desire to create amazing photographs!
I always enjoyed photographing people and capturing their individual spirits; I think this is what drew me to weddings. I love weddings! I love telling the story of the entire day by capturing the many personalities and emotions on display as the events unfold. I want to capture not only what people look like, but show what they feel like. I want to give my clients, dynamic and beautiful photographs that they will treasure for a lifetime! I want to create an amazing and fun experience by making my couples feel comfortable in front of the camera without interfering with the flow of the day. A wedding is a celebration of love with family and friends; truly an amazing event. I am honored and privileged be part of your day.
I have photographed weddings through out the United States and countries around the world including Dominican Republic,Italy and Mexico and have been featured in InStyle, Inside Weddings, Town and Country, Exquisite Weddings, Ceremony, San Diego Style, Grace Ormonde Weddings.Art of Celebration Southern California, Southern California Weddings,People-I do!The Great Celebrity Weddings.
I like to blend a variety of styles when I photograph weddings:
everything from a photojournalistic editorial approach to a contemporary
fashion edge or a classic romantic style. I am comfortable photographing grand elegant celebrations at large venues and small intimate weddings on the beach. I can give direction to make sure everyone looks great and is in the best light but also observe and make sure I'm in the right place to capture the spontaneous moments.
My work has been featured in local and national magazines and blogs including: InStyle, Inside Weddings, Town and Country, Grace Ormonde Weddings,People-I do The Great Celebrity Weddings.
