I am def not a pro in WordPress and have a few website with this theme running. I hardly worked with other themes so I cannot tell from a huge variety of experiences. I have used this theme for years now and counting.....and I realized with a former (paid) theme I had that it could also expire one day, maybe the people who created it are no longer in business.
The Story theme was always up-to-date, clear documentation, good to work with. Flexibility and documentation are great I would say, but again I have not a lot of comparison to other themes.
As someone who is new to designing their own website I have to say that the documentation that came along with the Story theme was amazing. Straightforward and answered any of the questions that came up as I was designing my website. I'm so proud of the new photography website I created using this theme! You can check it out at http://photographybyalanalee.com/ to see how I used this theme for my photography website.
Pexeto team has help us every time we have had a minor issue with the theme. The theme is not made specially to use WPML, but it works perfectly with it anyway, we just needed some help with the configuration. They help us even after years had passed since we bought it!
This theme is so easy to use (after figuring out how it works). The pages load quickly, there seems to be very little overhead with plugins. The page builder is very nice to work with compared to ones like Visual Composer (gag). Keep up the good work. The portfolio features are also very nice.
it is a very nice, customizable theme. I've been using it for a couple of years. It is awesome. Woocommerce ready. Flexible and the full screen gallery is so cool(that was the main reason why I chose the theme).
