about love in theory

Love in Theory is a multi-award winning wedding and portrait photography studio specializing in modern, nontraditional and editorial style photography. The company was founded in 2011 by Jacq Lew, who was born and raised in San Francisco, then attended UCLA School of Arts and Architecture. She then finished her BFA at School of Visual Arts in New York City with a focus in photography and an excellence in psychology.

Upon moving to New York from California, one of the few precious books Jacq brought with her was named “Art in Theory”. In it, it explores intimate statements from artists and theses from prominent figures who so intelligently break down and analyze pieces from

photography to paintings to performance art and beyond. The careful analysis, the clever eye, and the willingness to really know and understand others’ emotions and characters inspired Jacq to name her company Love in Theory. Jacq prides herself in being able to capture chic looks and authentic moments by connecting with clients on both a professional and personal level.

Jacq is joined by her talented associate Gui, and always aims to bring on likeminded, inspirational members to her team who are easy going and cleverly original. From California to New York, Paris, Mexico and Jamaica, Jacq has travelled the world to spread her vision and create images that are honest, compositionally exquisite, fun, and sultry.
