A warm, SnapKnot welcome to Amy Foltz, one of the most recent additions to our list of Terre Haute, Indiana wedding photographers. A mother of four and wife to her high school sweetheart, Amy is living her dream and using photography to document the little moments for couples and families. Her style changes a bit with each bride…
“It’s her day, not mine, and different types of weddings call for slightly different looks. Whatever the look the bride is going for, my goal is to use the photos to tell the story of the day and capture the moments and details that otherwise might be forgotten or unnoticed.”

Amy has loved taking photos for as long as she can remember. As a kid, she spent weekends having makeovers and photo shoots with her best friend. In addition, she took photos of her toys, her pets, and even of the kids she babysat. Amy ultimately fell in love with art of photography at 19, when she enrolled in a class at a local community college. From there she spent a lot of time studying in the darkroom, and says she wouldn’t trade that experience for the world.
“It was like magic, just putting a plain piece of paper in the developer bath and watching the image appear. I’ve switched to digital since then, so now I work in Photoshop instead of a darkroom, but it still feels magical to me.”
Amy has officially been in business since 2007.
“Do you want lots of romantic and dramatic portraits? Look for a photographer that shows those types of images. Are you more interested in having the little moments of the day captured? Look for a photographer that uses a photojournalistic approach.”
A great way to try out a photographer, suggests Amy, is with an engagement session. She explains that this gives you a chance to get to know each other and to see the quality of the images. Remember, you’re going to spend your whole wedding day (or at least most of it) with your photographer, so you want to make sure you get along well.
Lastly, Amy recommends that couples make sure to get an album, even if they get the digital files as well.
“While you may have grand plans of ordering one later or making one yourself, the next thing you know it will be your 10th anniversary and you still won’t have an album.”
