About Charles Lauren Films

Creating Cinematic Extravaganzas for the Most Amazing Couples* in California! *That's You!

We're here to make your Wedding Film! Our goal: To make you a film that is so interesting and fun, that anyone in the world, whether they know you or not, would be enthralled by the story of your day, and your love!


We make for you Modern Wedding Films that will blow away your friends, and bring tears to your eyes. We care about your story more than anything, and believe that if you want the story of your wedding day captured in a caring, professional, involved and modern style, we will be a great fit!

We are passionate, creative, and unobtrusive. This isn't our job, it's our life! You want a small professional team that is dedicated to you on your wedding day, knows where to be, what to do and why they are doing it. Making wedding films is our answer to the question of what love i,s and how we can make it visible for generations to come! 

We take the strongest elements from the day (speeches/visually stunning imagery) and mix them into a film the length of a typical TV show. Because of our love of people and the stories swirling around them, we spend about 60 hours editing and arranging, splicing and timing the footage that we captured during the day to create the finished product. We approach the editing like it is a documentary about your love/lives/day- not a "wedding video". You know what that means!

What we labor to create for your family's history is something entertaining as well as true to the day. When you watch your wedding film, it is historical, funny, cute, entertaining and poignant. Do you know why? Because it is about YOU and everyone YOU LOVE! 

If after reading this, you feel you know who we are- and are intrigued, come visit our web site and see many more samples! We're here to inspire you.

Let's Make a Movie!

It was a pleasure to have Kelsey and David as our wedding videographers. They are so sweet, professional, and have been extraordinarily accommodating from the start, working with us to customize a package that fit our vision. They were a seamless part of our day -- both well-prepared to film the important traditional events and with the instinctive timing to capture the unexpected, unplanned personal moments -- all while being discreet and respectful. My (now) husband kept remarking that he was so glad that Kelsey was with him and the rest of the groomsmen while they were getting ready in the moments before our "first look." She was informative, thoughtful and helped the guys stick to the all-important timeline. A week after the wedding they already put together a fantastic short trailer filled with all of the highlights! We can't wait to see the extended cut!

I just want to start off by saying thank you so much to David and Kelsey for their wonderful services on our wedding day. They did such a beautiful job. They not only were professional and great at what they did but they also showed up on time even early. They arrived about 15 minutes early and even worked 15 minutes over scheduled time. My party wasn't the easiest party to work with because we had such a large wedding party and the event was open bar so within an hour all our guests were close to drunk but they managed through the night perfectly and captured all our special moments. I cant thank them enough for their professional service and their kindness. We cant wait to see our wedding video. I am sure it will look absolutely beautiful. Thank you again for your amazing work, we hope to work with you again in the near future.

I was the day of coordinator for Dyan and Adams wedding at the Terrenea Resort and had the opportunity to work with Kelsey and David. They are absolutely fabulous. Not only do they work hard, they are just lovely people. You definitely can see the passion they have for their craft and the energy that is poured into their work. They really care about their couples. You can really see this in their work. The results are amazing. They are worth every penny.

I have been a DJ in the wedding industry for over 20 years and feel that I have seen it all. With that being said...Charles Lauren Films is one of my favorite Video/Photo companies to work with! They are down to earth and really care about their clients!!

Charles Lauren Films is an exceptional videography company! As a photographer I think it is extremely important for all vendors to work together to help make your day the best that it can be and I must say not only do they excel in their field, producing high quality, artistic, and inspirational films that truly capture the moments and emotion in each wedding, but they are also true professionals and a sheer delight to be around. I truly enjoyed working with them and feel like they would make a fantastic addition to any wedding. ~ Austin @ A. O'Brien Photography

Absolute stunning and poetry work in motion...keep it up!!!
