cookbooks by John Schlimm
"As a photographer and food stylist, Amy Roth is that rare artist who can transform the simple into extraordinary—the everyday into timeless perfection worthy of any gallery let alone pages of a book. With a keen eye and innate creativity, Amy produces images that are iconic right out of the gate, classic yet contemporary, and stand the test of time. From our first cookbook project onward, it has been an honor to work with her."
“I have worked with Amy many times as a food stylist and we have collaborated on creative projects. Her attention to detail and photography skill is second to none. Not only is she an amazing photographer with a gift for lighting, but a diligent, hard worker and organized business woman. I would recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat.”

“Amy is professional, easy to work with and has a great eye for her photography subjects. Her work speaks for itself and I would recommend her many times over.”
Yolanda Bailey-Burkett — owner, Bailey Shea Designs
"Amy is both professional and fun to work with. She's communicative, super-organized and completed our project ahead of schedule. She was able to help us photograph a wide variety of products in a consistent manner, which is not easy to do! Amy also has a great eye for color and for arranging things "just so" to bring out the best of what we were photographing. I wish we had more time to complete all the ideas she suggested!"

Dishing Up New Jersey cookbook
"With a keen eye for detail, plating, and lighting, Amy Roth's food photography seems to come alive on the page. Vibrant, colorful, each shot captures the essence of what a chef is trying to convey. You can tell Amy is a food enthusiast just by looking at her detailed photographs. Easy to work with, knowledgeable on so many different culinary topics, and always welcomed by chefs and restaurants, having Amy involved with my cookbook was a fantastic experience that I hope to repeat many more times in the future."
John Holl — author, Dishing Up New Jersey
The Wood Pit BBQ Restaurant
"The photos of our BBQ surely made the difference. They were used on our social media accounts and advertisements in local publications. In fact we plan to do another session before the spring BBQ season arrives."
Lawrence Hackney — owner/chef, The Wood Pit
All That Glitters Invitations
"When I first went to Amy, I was in DESPERATE need of a photography overhaul. I was nervous to turn over control to someone else, but I was blown away by my first set of photos. She was patient and listened to every word and request and worked her magic. Since beginning with her, I’ve had her shoot almost all my previous collections and she continues to shoot my new designs. She has taken my brand to the next level and has no doubt had a huge hand in the growing success of my Etsy shop & website. I will continue to turn to Amy for my photography needs as long as she’ll have me!"

Seahorse Bend Press
"I worked with Amy Roth Photo to completely re-shoot my entire store. You can see her beautiful work at Seahorse Bend Press. She has this gift of being able to [elevate] your work - a project that you know is just great but without photography and styling will not sell or get out to the masses. I get compliments every day about my work now - about the seamless photographs that coordinate and go together. This overhaul has been one of the top things I have done to increase sales in the last 6 months. ... [She] has taken my store from such a low point and with her photography has turned my sales around 60%. ... She has given me so many different shots that I can use for web [and] social media as well as for my listings. ... The time and thought that she puts behind her shoots is great - and I am always amazed and delighted when there is a new set in the drop box. It is like Christmas for me!"
