theorie â¢ art that thinks
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!!
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.
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.
Amy and Maurice will capture every special moment that the two of you will share on your wedding day. Their artistic and passionate approach to photography is simply Genius!
Hi Amy!! I wanted to send you an email to say THANK YOU so much for photographong our wedding! You did FABULOUS JOB! Everyone just loves them as do we! Every moment was captured! THANK YOU AGAIN FOR AN AMAZING JOB! I just love looking at them over and over again! :)
WOW. The first, and every subsequent time I have sat down to look through the images you took, I am absolutely mesmerized. Though I'm embarassed to admit it, even days after the wedding already my memory was fuzzy, blurred by the emotions running high and the whirlwind of friends and family on that day. But I need not have worried; the images you have shared with me are so clear I am instantsly transported back to that day and allowed to see the day not through my blurry memories, but in wonderfully sharp focus. You captured such pure emotion in our expressions; it moves me. I feel like you have shared a secret with me as I see hugs between guests, joyous smiles I wasn't around to see, and other moments you captured I previously didn't even know I was missing. What a priceless gift you have given me, my family, and my friends. Thank you so much for sharing your talent and passion for what you do with me. Your presence was so reassuring to me on that day, and the irreplaceable gift of the images you have shared with me will be treasured always. Thank you.
Amy and Maurice were amazing. They are such a great couple to work with. They are sincere, artistic, passionate about what they do and deliver an amazing experience and ultimate product. I am so happy we decided to go with them for our wedding. They helped make the memories truly special.
Amy and Maurice were a great total package. They were professional, talented and oh so friendly. They made us both feel comfortable in front of the camera which was big task. I wouldn't hesitate to choose this amazing couple for your special event!
Amy & Maurice, I just wanted to take a moment and really thank you for the beautiful album. I continue to look through it day after day. You truely captured wonderful moments from that day. Because of you, Tad and I will have a lifetime of memories to look back at of our special day. Thank you so much!!!!! : )
Wow. Just wow. We'll follow-up when we've regained our ability to be articulate : )
Jerry and I want to thank you and Maurice for all your hard work. You two were so much fun to work with and you really made our day special. We can't thank you enough! We are so glad you were a part of our wedding, and we look forward to you being a part of the start of our family.
The pictures you created took our breath away! We are in awe of your creativity, talent, and artistic abilities. Thank you for creating such unique images of us. These are truly keepsakes as well as art pieces.
We just got the discs of all of our wedding and life style pics and it reminded me that I need to write to you both! I have to say that I have truly enjoyed our wedding album. You guys are so amazing. I know you hear it all the time, but REALLY you both are. Everyone that sees the photos is completely blown away by your perspectives and your ability to make the ordinary extraordinary! It is so refreshing and inspiring to meet two people so right for each other, doing exactly what they were meant to do. I feel so lucky to have stumbled upon your website two years ago. Aside from my husband and the memories, the photos are my most favorite thing about our wedding! Thanks so much!!!
