I’m a real Midwest girl. I was raised in rural Indiana, on a few acres carved out of the woods, at the end of a dead end road. But when I was a kid, I always dreamed I’d end up with some bigger-than-life career, making huge changes with my name in the headline or the by-line.
Then I realized that there’s nothing bigger than life.
I couldn’t bear to leave LaPorte County. The country is my heart. No city skyline could ever compete with the simple beauty of a county road disappearing through woods and fields. I studied journalism in college, but I never bothered with that career. I have no interest in chasing huge stories anymore, only yours.
I feel blessed everyday that I turned my hobby into my career. Whenever I look at my wedding photos I feel everything, all over again. How lucky am I to make a living giving those feelings back to you, forever!
Photography isn’t making people look pretty in pretty places. It’s way more than that. You don’t live your life in front of a grey muslin sheet. That’s why I don’t do backdrops and I don’t have a studio.
You don’t want to look at your wedding photos and think, “How pretty.” You want to taste the wine and hear the cello. You want to say, “How US.”

Amy photographed our wedding at Journeyman Distillery this past September. She had shot weddings there in the past and was very familiar with how/when/where to capture the perfect shots! We haven't received all of our photos just yet but those we have seen are just fabulous! Her package includes engagement shots; but we didn't need them as we had already taken them with my cousin, so Amy reduced the package cost for us. She was able to provide a photobooth last minute as well which added such a fun concept to the wedding that we hadn't intended on!Sent on 12/30/2015

Amy is amazing! She's so friendly and relaxing to be around. She made our engagement photo shoot so wonderful. I love all of the photos she took and it is very difficult to choose my favorite. She's very responsive to your emails when you have questions. I cannot wait to see the photos she takes at our wedding next year!Sent on 12/19/2014

LOVE Amy Straka. I met her when she shot my friend's wedding back in 2010. She's very professional, and you can tell that she loves what she does. I had a lot of fun with her, and I was so happy she was able to shoot my engagement and wedding photography. She's so talented, and I would recommend her to anyone in need of a photographer. :)Sent on 06/13/2014
Amy is extremely talented. Her fabulous personality shows in her photography, which gives her work a unique flair. That's hard to come by. She's the best.
