Tim was great to work with! You can truly tell he loves what he does and is amazing at it!!! He made my fiancé and I feel very comfortable for both our engagement pictures and wedding photos!!! He did a Great job at directing us when needed but making the photo look natural!!! And great with candids too!!! So glad we chose Tim and Venus(his assistant)!!!
We were SO thrilled with all of our wedding pictures, as well as the amazing pictures that Tim captured for our engagement shoot. From the moment we met Tim, we immediately felt comfortable, and he made us feel very comfortable and allowed us to be ourselves in front of the camera and made it so FUN! Tim was very familiar with our wedding venue (Estancia La Jolla), and picked some great spots at the property and is very creative in his photo shots. He had great suggestions for photo ideas, and we just knew we could trust him for every step of the way, including providing suggestions for our timeline so that all the photos would run smoothly! We worked with Tim and his two assistant photographers because we had a large wedding, and his assistants were also such a great pleasure to work with. Tim had also worked with our videographers, which also made the whole process incredibly smooth. Tim stayed at our wedding reception until 1am in order to capture us stuffing our faces at our late-night food truck. Don't have enough great things to say about Tim! My family recently hired him for a family shoot as well (he is great with kids!). Now, we just need to narrow down the wonderful pictures he took to choose what goes in the album. 100000% recommend Tim for your photography needs.
Tim takes amazing photos! We wanted someone who knew the location well where we got married, which was at the Prado, as there are so many great places to take pictures. He knew it like the back of his hand and knew exactly where to take us to capture the day. He even accommodated our "no look first look" and the pictures turned out just as we wanted. There are so many great ones to chose from, and all of our friends and family couldn't have been happier. He got action shots from our first dance and all of the other events of the day that are truly perfect. I could not be happier with all of the pictures and will have a hard, but fun time picking our my favorites so we can order larger prints to put up in our house. He also had a unique option of Wedding as Art, which is another registry option where guests can contribute toward an album or any type of print or photo you may want to order afterwards. We thought this was a great idea and took advantage of it. I know a lot of our guests loved it as well. Tim was very accommodating on all of our requests, and was always prompt to respond. I highly recommend Tim, as his photography skills are top of the line! Thanks for capturing our day.
Tim did a great job! He and his assistant made our wedding day easy and took the lead getting all of our detail shots/ getting ready photos while I was busy in hair and makeup. He was extremely easy to work with and professional; laying out the wedding day timeline and all our must have shots ahead of time with me. I loved that we got to take our engagement shots with him ahead of time at Balboa Park and La Jolla Beach as practice for the wedding day. The photos turned out beautifully and I had almost 1,000 shots from our wedding day. Within 3 weeks of our wedding I had a flash drive with all the photos in hand and in 2 weeks I already had an online album I could view with a slideshow to share with family and friends.
Tim photographed my two best friends wedding-- so when it came down to choosing a photographer, there was no question I was going to hire him. From start to finish Tim was available and responsive. He has ideas of where to shoot and brings an amazing energy to the day. We flew in from NYC to have our wedding in San Diego and I recommend him to brides out in New York because he is worth flying out! Without question, the best wedding photographer.

Amazing PhotosReviewed on 10/08/2013 Dianne S
Tim shot my wedding and my engagement shoot and the pictures are phenomenal. He really does a great job. It does take a little long to get them back, but the results are worth the wait.
Extremely talented photographerReviewed on 4/11/2012 Margeaux B
Tim recently did our wedding at the Hard Rock Hotel and also our engagement photos. He truly is a ridiculously talented and artistic photographer. Tim thinks outside the box and doesn't just shoot cookie cutter photos. We were beyond impressed with our engagement photos and also the guest book he made us. When it came to picking a photographer my motto was quality over quanity. This is exactly what you will get with Tim, amazing quality photos. We adore Tim and will definitely be using him in the future!

Tim is really cool and easy to work with. He was flexible on time and locations. And the photos turned out to be better than we expected. And we really like that he is efficient and always right to the point.

Review for Tim Otto PhotographyReviewed on 5/10/2010 Pamela W
Tim Otto is a genius at capturing the essence of the day and the true emotions of those involved. We absolutely loved his photo journalistic style and his unique ability to tell a story with film!;A bit pricey, but worth every dime.
Review for Tim Otto PhotographyReviewed on 5/10/2010 Jill A
Tim's creativity is amazing! He is a pleasure to work with and is very passionate about his art.;Make a list of shots that you want to have. We never got the traditional shot of the rings as I thought that this was an automatic shot at every wedding. I wish that I would have said something.
Review for Tim Otto PhotographyReviewed on 9/04/2008 Suzanne B
I highly recommend Tim Otto! Wow! His work is remarkable. The quality of his images are outstanding plus he captures the moments of your wedding in a photo-journalistic way to include great candids and some traditional portraits. He is a nice easy going man to work with. He listens to your needs and makes suggestions based on your wishes. We almost walked away from using him as he is a bigger investment than many photographers but found that he is worth every cent! If photos are your priority spend the money! You won't regret it!;One thing you may want to remember is that while Tim's package includes you having the rights to your images after the wedding you only get images up to 5x7.
Review for Tim Otto PhotographyReviewed on 9/22/2007 Jenifer B
He is the most amazing photographer. He did our wedding pictures and engagement pictures. He loves out of the box thinking with pictures. So many of our pictures were good that it is hard to find our favorites! My sister is using him when she gets married next year.;He is expensive but worth every penny.
