We knew that photography was one of our number one priorities when planning our wedding. We weren't getting a videographer and we knew the images would capture all of the special moments of our wedding day. I couldn't be happier with our choice to use Amie. We knew from our first meeting that we would use her - as her passion for the art and her creativity was obvious. Amie really takes the time to get to know the couple and what they want. After receiving all of our proofs, I'm in awe by the emotion caught on camera. The pictures come to life and portray exactly who we are as individuals and as a couple. Nothing is staged, everything is natural and artistic and the way Amie uses light is unreal. We are unbelievably pleased with her service. The money spent and time waiting for the images was well worth it. Not to mention that she also was a savior to have on my team as my dress got shredded pre-ceremony. Without her fabulous sewing skills and cool and calm demeanor, I'm not sure how the day would have turned out.

While reading reviews on djs, I stumbled across a review on Amie Otto. The minute I met Amie and saw her photos I knew this was the photographer we wanted for my daughter's wedding. She is extremely professional yet very approachable. Amie has a gift in being able to sense her client's style by asking the right questions.
The minute Amie arrived at the venue and began checking out the lighting and setting we knew the photos would be great. Both before and during the ceremony Amie was inconspicuous but you sensed the shots would be great. We weren't disappointed!
Amie took command of the formal photo sessions making sure she would capture the best light and keeping everyone focused so we could finish and go have fun at the reception. Her presence wasn't invasive during the reception. She took numerous photos, but you didn't get the sense that the paparazzi was following you. The guests really enjoyed the photo booth and props Amie set up for our use and we have some really fun photos from it.
We received our photos earlier than the sixty days that Amie had in her contract. She even gave us a sneak preview in her blog so we could see some of the pictures. To sum up the quality of our photos I will quote a friend. "You know how when people look at wedding pictures they always say the pictures are beautiful? Well your TRULY are and I am not just saying that! What is your photographer's name again? Do you have an extra card?"
I made a mistake when ordering a family picture a size that wasn't suggested and didn't check the cropping. Unfortunately a couple people were cut out of the picture. When I emailed Amie and told her what happened she not only replaced my picture, she had it framed for me too! This was so unexpected and greatly appreciated. Knowing Amie's character and her desire for her brides and their families to be pleased it was actually not surprising at all. You can't go wrong selection Amie as your wedding photographer. By the time your wedding is over you will refer to Amie as your friend, not your photographer.
I had the privilege of using Amie to take pictures of the children in my preschool also. The pictures don't look like your stereotypical school pictures. She captured the unique spirit of each child in her photos. One child was new to the school and extremely shy. Amie's photo of this child caught the child smiling and light hearted. In other words, I highly recommend using Amie for family portraits too!

Amie is an amazing photographer - this review won't be able to do her work justice. She is extremely talented and it shows in all of her work. She photographed our rehearsal dinner and wedding day and we will truly treasure the pictures all our lives. She also provides great wedding day advice - like when we were at the hairdresser and my updo needed more touch-ups to be camera ready - she stepped in.
