Amy Straka Photography
I first came across Amy's photography when I was looking at pictures of my wedding venue (Mill Creek Barns). Her work really stood out to me. She puts so much thought and creativity into each photograph she takes. I'm so proud to show my engagement and wedding photographs to friends and family. She captured every moment perfectly and I will be able to cherish those moments forever because of her photographs.
Not only is Amy an amazingly talented photographer, but she was so wonderful to work with. She has a genuine personality and is so professional with communication. She was one of the only wedding vendors I used that was responsive. I would barely hit send on a email and I would have an answer back from her. She is one of the most organized people I know!
Hands down, hiring Amy was the best decision I made in planning my...
I met Amy at a local bridal expo and was instantly drawn in by her amazing photographs. My husband and I booked her to do our engagement session as a warm up for the big day. It was a great experience working with her. She kept in contact with me through the plannnig process and was interested in all of my wedding details. Amy helped me create a wedding package that fit my bridal budget. I knew I was in good hands because of her professionalism and creativity. I am proud to say that I have amazing wedding photos because of her. She does whatever it takes to make sure that you are pleased with your photos. I look forward to working with her again for more photo sessions!
Amy stood in for her friend Heather, our original photographer, when she was sent to the hospital with appendicitis days before our wedding. You would never have known that she had been recruited on such short notice! She must have read my mind, because every photo that I wanted to take, but was told not to because it might mess up my dress, she proposed and took! Amy is unbelievably creative and talented. She came early to scope out the property for where to take the best shots, and she didn't let herself get bossed around by a certain someone (Very proud of her for that!). The day after the wedding she has already posted 17 photos to facebook for my family, friends, and myself and new husband to see. I could not have asked for better photos! I will certainly remember Amy as a great photographer, a good friend to someone in need, and one of the easiest people to get along with. Thank you, Amy!

Thank you, Kieran! You two are wonderful and I couldn't have asked for a better couple to be matched up with by chance! Congrats, and the best to you!
Amy is an amazing photographer! She was super helpful and open to any suggestions that we had. She now has a "build your own" package option so that you only pay for what you need/want. Her ideas for locations and poses are great and she is super versatile. All of our photos were beautiful and she is super outgoing and fun to have around. Her assistant was awesome too! We got our album that she designed and we love it! She is highly recommended!!! She books quickly so make sure that you get a hold of her ASAP. Amy also did a really fun engagement shoot for us and those photos were also beautiful!!

Amy did my engagement photos and wedding! She is very open-minded, creative, and hip! We did our photos at the Coffee Creek Watershed and you can tell she was completely in her element, awesome nature shots! I also love her many package options to fit a wide variety of budgets. If you are looking for total customization and professionalism let Amy Straka shoot your wedding!
Amy was a HUGE blessing! I was planning my wedding from FL and the wedding with up near Chicago. My original photographer backed out a MONTH before the wedding. GOOD THING because with some research I found AMY! Thank goodness! Luckily she was available for our wedding. She was able to accomodate to our needs and requests even though every thing was so last minute. I have recommended Amy to MANY friends and family and will continue to. She has helped capture many memories to which I am grateful! Thanks Amy, you rock!
Amy photographed our engagement and wedding photos. She did a wonderful job. She was so creative and would do just about anything to capture that perfect shot! Her personality is very upbeat and kind, she has a wonderful sense of humor, she is professional, her style is cutting edge and her customer service is great. We are very happy with her work, she has created so many amazing memories of our special day through her photos. If I were to do it all over again, she would be at the top of my list of necessities for an amazing, unforgettable wedding!
What a pleasure it was to work with Amy! Very warm, friendly, fun and talented! She really knows how to capture the moment!
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.”
