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.


Incredible Photographer!

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!


Worth Every Penny and More!

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.


Amie is Fantastic

Amie is so professional and a joy to work with. She took some of the most beautiful pictures I have ever seen, and I could not be happier with the final outcome. She posted our photobooth pictures within a week and a sneak peek of over 40 pictures to her Facebook page in less than three weeks. After vetting nearly 50 photographers, I am so pleased we chose Amie!


My Wonderful Wedding Photographer

Reviewed on 12/18/2011 Holly G

Amie is amazing! She has one goal in mind, which is to capture your day in every aspect possible. Her assistant was great too! Amie met the bridal party in the morning and James met with the guys at the hotel since we weren't seeing each other before the wedding. I found Amie easy to work with, she really tries hard to capture what is most important to the bride and groom. She is very professional and compassionate about what she does. She is definitely worth paying the extra money for as you will never be able to experience that same day again and Amie knows how to make those memories last in her work!

FANTASTIC photojournalist!!!

Reviewed on 7/12/2011 Amy N

I found Amie by looking at reviews on this website and I was SO glad that I did!!! She is a wonderful photographer and so easy to work with!! She took incredible photos, both portraits and candid shots. We opted for a photobooth with our package instead of an engagement session- what an awesome thing to have for your reception!! All of our guests were SO in to it!!! Amie brought a second shooter that got some awesome alternate angles. I can't wait to do our album with her!! I highly recommend Amie Otto Photography to anyone that is looking for amazing photography and amazing value!!


Fantastic!

I get nothing but rave reviews for my wedding photos. Amie was very easy going and gave great direction for our wedding shoot. She was able to pick out the best lighting and backgrounds to make our photographs truly amazing. Her persona is professional yet personable. I would highly recommend her!


I Definitely Recommend

Amie's photos were fantastic. We were so pleased with all the pictures she got (the number and quality). Everyone who has seen our pictures said they were beautiful. On a couple of our pictures, my mother-in-law was asked if they were from a magazine - my husband and I certainly do not look like models, but the photography was just so professional. Amie did a great job capturing the story of our day - from the portraits to the artistic to the candids. Also have to say that for the DC area and the quality of the service, I thought the price was quite reasonable.


Beautiful work with a brilliant presence!

Amie just photographed our wedding and to say her wonderful presence and creative process contributed to the event is an understatement! She is an incredible photographer with a refreshing take on the art of documentation. I was immediately comfortable with her and was delighted and honored to have her at my wedding. She comes highly recommended as a talented professional and as a stunning person, both of which reflect in her work. Thank you so much Amie, Amber Kendrick


Thanks Amie!

Upon running into Amie at a bridal expo, we clicked immediately as if we were longtime friends. Amie did an exceptional job with both our engagement pictures (with our rambunctious dogs!) and wedding albums. Her creative approach (the collage spreads escpecially) to capturing the emotion of each moment gave us amazing photos that bring us right back to such a special day in our lives. Thank you, Amie :)


Amie was amazing!

We got an 8 hour package with only one photographer (Amie herself). She was perfect. Punctual, creative and unintrusive. She got some great shots of our family members and of the action on the dance floor. We couldn't be happier with our pics! Thanks Amie!!!
