Describe your business in 1-3 short sentences.
Artists. Observers. Film makers. Kind, hardworking humans.
We are a team of queer women filmmakers who met in graduate school and have not stopped making films together since. Creating beautiful, raw wedding films that focus on what really matters to our couples.
Why do you want to work with APW Couples?
We LOVE APW couples! You all care about inclusivity AND a fabulous party and we can't think of anything better. We got into filming weddings because we think it's beautiful to celebrate not only a couple, but everyone that taught them how to love and will continue to support that love. APW couples embody that care for what really matters: community, authenticity, and love.
Describe your artistic approach to weddings?
We believe in representing the diversity of love. No couple is the same, no marriage the same, and we believe no wedding film should be the same. We will never try to fit you into a mold of what we think romance looks like. Instead, we will capture you and your connection with thoughtful framing, lighting, pacing and love. We all have documentary film backgrounds, and we bring this ethos to everything we film.
We take this same approach to editing your film as well as well. We don’t have a formula, a mold we pour all footage into. Instead, we carefully listen to what was said in your vows and toasts, we think back on the conversations we've had with you, we watch each and every clip, and then we create a custom film that tells your unique story.
We've been told we're "the calm in the center of the storm” on a wedding day. Our approach is calm, centered, and deeply observant. We walk that delicate line between getting the perfect shot and making sure we are fully aware of your guests experience.
8 reviews on “Lovelit Films”
We can't say enough good things about Lovelit Films. Abigail and the team were wonderful to work with from beginning to end! Eugene and Deanna (videographers) were so easy and comfortable to be around and we felt confident they would do an amazing job. They delivered! We were thrilled with all of our wedding videos! (highlight reel + ceremony +speeches) The sound came out great, editing is beautiful, transitions with music are seamless, they were able to capture some really wonderful moments and the whole package was well worth the price. We are so grateful we have that footage from our favorite day! We would definitely recommend Abigail and her team again and again!
Abigail and Deanna were dreams to have do the videography for our wedding. The examples of their work online are shot gorgeously and thoughtfully. Those attributes carried through into the videos that they presented to us after editing our wedding videos. We could not be more happy and thrilled to have documentation of memories that will last a lifetime!
Working with Abigail at Lovelit Films was an amazing experience. I am very detail oriented and had a very specific wishlist for our wedding videos. Not only did Abigail listen to all of them, but she went above and beyond to give our videos a cinematic feel with beautiful angles, sound editing, and music. On top of that she is an absolutely beautiful human being and we are so grateful to have worked with her. We will treasure our wedding footage for the rest of our lives!
Lovelit FIlms! Abigail and Deanna were a joy to work with. They both have an amazing energy, they are calm and professional. From our first FaceTime interview with them, to our actual wedding day filming, to the email communication afterwards, we were so impressed with the work, footage and results! They worked wonderfully with the other members of our team (wedding coordinator, photographers, DJ etc.) Their talent is really something to behold, we ordered the highlight real + full ceremony + full toasts and are thankful everyday that we did as the wedding sometimes goes by like a blur and now we can fully enjoy and experience the day forever. Abigail kept us in the loop and even checked in with us a few days before the wedding. So thoughtful. We highly recommend Lovelit Films for your wedding or next big event.
I found Lovelit Films through instagram and I am so happy that I did! From our first meeting at a coffee shop to the final delivery of our video, Abigail has been a joy to work with! At our consultation meeting, she was great at helping me figure out what I liked from other videos and took notes on everything that we discussed. She was also great at working within my budget. On the day of, she showed up on time and once the wedding actually started, I forgot she and Eugene (our 2nd shooter) was even there. They were like ninjas! We loved the trailer she sent us (which we got like a week after the wedding) and our final video! We've watched it so many times already! Thanks for such a great memento! Update: We lost our wedding video and over a year later, Abigail still had all the footage! We are so relieved and thankful!
I can't say enough amazing things about Abigail and her team. As soon as we watched one of their videos we knew we had to book them. After talking to Abigail for the first time, we fell in love! Their style is unique in that it tells your story in a beautiful, natural, non cheesy way. I was a little worried about having someone video us the whole day, but Abigail was not only such a joy to have with us all day, but we really didn't notice the filming. She is so good at getting the shots she needs, quickly and she does it in a very natural way. In the beginning of the process, we were also concerned about things like music choice (after seeing so many bad wedding videos from others!). When we saw the 1 min preview film Lovelit created after our wedding, we were so happy. The instrumental music choice perfectly captured the essence of the day. We just received our full video and are SO obsessed. I can't imagine not booking a videographer, and I can't imagine our day being captured by anyone other than Lovelit! We loved them so much we've already referred some friends and they booked them too. Also, I would highly suggest opting for the drone, it was a must have for us and really made the video!
Abigail and her team were GODSENDS! We were really on the fence about videography, but we finally decided to look into it and see if we could do it affordably. They really worked with us to customize a package in our price range and after receiving the footage I feel like we got the deal of the century. They went out of their way to ensure they captured all the special moments, running around getting different angles. The truth is we didn't even realize how much running around they were doing until we saw some of the rough footage, because they never were distracting. I swear they are like ninjas- we barely noticed them but when we looked at the footage they were always there to catch the special moments. They were professional, on time, and true artists. I feel so lucky to have booked them! Also if you are on the fence about videography- DO IT. I am not really a photogenic person so I was worried that my photos wouldn't capture the way I really looked on the day and now that I have video footage I know that my future kids/grandkids will get a true sense of how the day looked and felt. Don't hesitate to book them, it was totally worth it!
After a terrible experience with our previous videographer, our wedding planner referred us to LoveLit Films and from that first meeting on, we knew Abigail was passionate about her work! She is detailed, flexible to work with, and so kind. She asked us what was important to us in the day so she made sure to include it in the highlight video and when the trailer came out, we were so in shock that something as disheveled as a wedding day could come together so seamlessly. Our friends and family were very impressed with the highlight video and my now husband and I watch it all the time with wide grins on our faces. LoveLit Films is fantastic and we have no problem recommending them to any couple looking for a genuine and extremely talented team!!
