All I have to say about Maurice and Amy is awesome! They were our first vendors to book for our wedding. They are extremely talented and passionate about their photography. They were awesome to work with, extremely personable and friendly. I would highly recommend them.

I love Amy and Maurice! They were also the first vendor I booked for our wedding, less than a week after we got engaged. It was a no brainer for me - I fell in love with our venue after seeing their amazing shots. They are so talented, professional and hardworking. And really reasonably priced compared to photographers of their caliber and in the area. We enjoyed working with them immensely and are thrilled with the final product. Thank you Amy and Maurice for capturing our day and providing us with a lifetime of memories!!

It's tempting to try to skimp on photography since you're spending tons of money on everything else. But the way I see it, of all the things you spend money on for your wedding, there is almost nothing you get to take with you after the actual day is done. You don't get the food, you might take the top of your cake but most people never even eat it, it's not like you can't wear your dress again. Really all you have left after the day is the wedding photography (and videography, if you get a video). So for us, we wanted to make sure we found a photographer that could capture our day in the most memorable way possible. And that photographer was Theorie. It's easy to take a nice-looking picture when people are all dressed up and feeling good. Anyone can do it. But the difference with Amy and Maurice at Theorie is that they bring a fresh look to wedding photography. Their style is not traditional, and that made sense for us because we didn't want to have pictures of us standing in prom pose or the generic "class picture" family shot. A lot of my friends' wedding pictures look like they could have been taken inside a studio with fake wedding backdrops. We didn't want that. Granted, these days there are a number of contemporary style photographers out there. But I thought Amy and Maurice had the perfect combination of funkiness without being ridiculous (I've seen more than a few where all the pictures have the heads cut off, or everything is photographed on a diagonal, basically where they employ kooky tricks to hide the fact that they have no natural eye for photography). When you look at Theorie's photography, it just has so much life in it. They do use editing effects (and Maurice is a genius at it!), but you don't even realize you're looking at an edited photo. All Maurice does is enhance the feeling or emotion that was already present in the picture. Definitely check out their blog and website. Working with them was also a pleasure. Both of them shoot your wedding together, and that way they capture so much more. It may cost a little more compared to a single photographer, but what you get in the end is so worth it. They seemed so happy to be there with us, doing what they love to do, relaxed and having fun with us. I've stood in weddings where the photographer seemed bitter that he had to be there, like he was just there on the "job". With Theorie, you work with Amy and Maurice only, they don't send an associate photographer out. I can't think of any drawback to working with Theorie. They are a two-person team so depending on how busy they are, they may take longer to get your album delivered. I'm not sure what the standard delivery time is, but got our album within six months of the wedding. But it is so worth the wait. Please don't let that sway your decision! And I forgot to say the album itself is excellent quality. If you choose Theorie, it will be the best wedding present you gave to yourselves.
