STORIES ARE ROOTED IN OUR DNA.

For thousands of years we’ve passed on stories. The only thing that has changed is how we share them – from the invention of cave paintings to moving pictures on screen. Storytelling is in our DNA.


It’s the chemistry between two characters that drive the story.

Every wedding filmmaker faces the challenge of telling the right story – one that sinks below the surface to truly reflect the essence of the couple.

It really comes down to this: good wedding films tell the story. Great wedding films create an experience. We strive for the latter.

The Love Lab is a fusion of my two passions – I am both scientist and filmmaker.  As such, I do things a little differently. I dip below the surface; storytelling through a couple’s chemistry. This blend of science and art delivers a rare form of wedding and elopement cinematography.

 

Born in Germany and raised in Tasmania, my love of filmmaking has taken me to far flung places from the Pacific Islands to the Middle East to the Americas. I delved into the film and television industry in Sydney, working with the likes of Foxtel, ABC and Channel 7. But it would be Tasmania that called me home – an island where The Love Lab and marine science blend seamlessly.

 

It is here that I meet loved up couples who have traveled the globe – lured by Tasmania’s raw and wild personality. Their love story rolls out across a landscape bathed in nature’s drama. Ask me about intimate island corners or guide me to your secret place. Our journey travels through face-to-face meetings, emails, runsheet planning and project management. It’s then all wrapped up in your own epic wedding video.

 

Based in Hobart, I am available for elopements and weddings worldwide.

LEWA 

FOUNDER

HAPPY COUPLES

After a lot of searching we came across the amazing work of Lewa and the Love Lab after watching her work and being blown away with the imagery we knew we had found the right person to capture our day. After our first call to chat about the overall vision and ideas we knew we were in incredible hands.

Over the next few months we had so many wonderful connections and planning sessions that cemented an incredible relationship that carried through to our wedding day. Lewa and the team were so incredible and supportive and such a pleasure to work with. True professionals and at the same time like working with close friends. Over the course of our wedding weekend it was like they became part of our family.

We along with anyone we have shown were so blown away with the finished product. It outstripped our expectations and captured everything so perfectly it truly was epic. For both of us it means a lot to have not only incredibly stunning imagery from the day but to have it told in a story that captures our love and relationship.

We knew from the start we wanted to have an incredible video that we can watch over and over again and couldn’t be happier with our decision to work with the Love Lab. We would recommend Lewa and the Love Lab to anyone and everyone 5 stars truly isn’t enough.

Lewa and team from the bottom of our hearts thank you for everything. You have impacted our lives in such a special way and from both us and our families thank you for everything!

Creatives tend to have a vision in what they want for their wedding day (well life really), and let me tell you when you put creatives in the driving seat for a three day celebration of love with their closest family and friends its sure to be a determined vision!

I met Lewa in Tassie on my reconnaissance mission a couple of months before the wedding and I’m so glad I did. I laid everything on the table, our vision, why we wanted a video and what had lead us in the past 6 years to our wedding day in April. She got it, from that very minute.

 

She understood us, our vision and our love for each other and our family and friends and managed to make it into the most amazing video of not only our day but our story. We have lost count the times we have watched it already and it brings tears to our eyes every time.

Lewa and her team worked with us to make our video everything we had dreamed of and more. From the arial shots, the loving glances and the on point sound grabs our video will always hold and special place in our hearts reminding us of our wedding day on Bruny and also our love up to that point.

Lots of Love Kim and Amy

KIM + AMY

Both Lewa and Chris were amazing. Truly accommodating and always managing to make us feel comfortable and at ease even though the weather that day could have made us feel extremely miserable. Definitely one of those  individuals you meet and will not forget for the rest of your lives. 

 

The planning was quite seamless with a high level of professionalism shown by Lewa while corresponding through emails. Top notch and meticulous planning on The Love Labs part made sure there was nothing much else to do on the day itself then just rock up and begin shooting! 

 

It was definitely the most worth while experience compared to photos or other pre wedding plannings as The Love Lab managed to capture us and our love for one another perfectly. 

 

I would definitely recommend The Love Lab to anyone out there who is looking for a pre-wedding experience which goes beyond a simple video for keeps sake and excellent professionalism and quality service you can expect from any other vendor.

It was quite difficult being in Brisbane and organising a wedding in Tasmania and trying to find vendors. When we found the The Love Lab, it "felt right". The way you capture a couples love and turn it in to a cinematic experience is right up our alley!! The team is so easy to work with and I barely noticed you there.

 

You're like a fly on the wall that captures every intimate detail of the day! When I first saw the video I cried for the first seven times I watched it on repeat. Then I had a break to finish my wine. Watched it another five times and cried even harder. It was so amazing reliving the best day of our lives through the eyes of the The Love Lab.

We fell in love with The Love Lab's work after travelling to Tasmania for a great friend's wedding. I remember Lucy showed a group of us girls from school the video in a little cafe in Adelaide, we will all in tears by the end of it.

 

The Love Lab had captured their day so perfectly, and that is the moment I fell in love. I showed Adam and he too loved the style of shooting. From there, we made contact with Lewa who was so lovely from the outset and made us feel at ease.

 

We felt that she understood us, even from just chatting via Skype. We were always on the same page, she sensed exactly what we wanted out of the film and then depicted the day perfectly. We would describe the team as easy-going, fun, creative and focused. They are so devoted to producing outstanding work and made the whole process for us as a novice couple in front of the camera so comfortable and easy.

 

We didn't have to think about a thing, they always had it covered.

Lewa at The Love Lab could not have done a better job with photographing our wedding day, the way she was able to capture the realness and truth of the day was exactly what we wanted. Each photo tells a story and we could not be happier!!! Such amazing work, thank you so much x x x

Wow, we cannot speak highly enough of The Love Lab! We watched A LOT of wedding videos in the lead up to our wedding and couldn't go past these guys. From the very start Lewa was amazing to work with, so easy to talk to and listened to our vision while also giving us helpful advice.

 

On the day the whole team made us feel comfortable and we barely even realised they were there which is what makes their videos so natural and candid.

 

Our video brought back so many amazing memories and emotions from our day and it was super cool seeing our day through our guests eyes. We would highly recommend The Love Lab to anyone that is thinking about getting a videographer to capture there day - a great investment! Love Hollie and Jake x

Your ability to capture moments is breathtaking! The whole process was easy and pleasant. The Love Lab team were accommodating and took great interest and time in getting to know both of us.

 

On the day they were organised and made the filming FUN with lots of laughs - so much so that I've told all my friends who are getting married that the video is probably the most important thing to invest in.

 

It captures moments, body language, mood etc... we are thrilled with our choice in The Love Lab!

Lewa you where amazing! The contact you kept with me throughout the process was excellent! Your attention to detail and organisation rivaled my own and I loved that. I knew that on the day you would capture the most amazing footage.

 

In the lead up to the wedding you and your team felt like part of the family and you seamlessly slipped in and out of depending on the moments. You were so respectful on the day of our feelings and emotional states. I remember you taking the time to check in with us about how we were feeling and if we needed a break. It was refreshing.

Words cannot describe how thankful I am that we made the investment of getting our wedding filmed! It is something I will recommend to any future friends or couples when they decide to get married!! I love that in the future we can show our children our wedding and I cannot thank my best friend for telling me to get a videographer!
