About Charles Lauren Films

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!

Booking Charles Lauren Films was hands down the best decision my husband and I made for our wedding. They are a really sweet couple and clearly love their work, and have so much experience and creativity to share. Throughout the wedding planning process, we kept in touch with Kelsey and David. Each time we had a question, request, or wanted to share a detail about our wedding, they were responsive, extremely organized and really positive. We had some tricky details including two ceremonies to capture (one at church and one at the reception venue) and they were great about coordinating with us to make sure to capture everything we wanted.

The day of the wedding, their infectious energy and hard working ethic was so impressive to everyone at my wedding. They worked well with all of our vendors too, particularly our photographer and his assistants, and they coordinated shots very well together.

We are a few weeks out from our wedding and Kelsey and David sent us a highlights video of our wedding. It completely captures everything we asked for from the tone and spirit of the video, to the content, and music soundtrack. Their editing skills are superb and everyone we have shared the video with has commented on how much it captures the emotions of the wedding day so well and that the video just radiates pure joy and brings smiles to everyone's faces. We can't wait to see the long video which we have also ordered as a part of our package with them. Book Kelsey and David, they are extremely talented and wonderful to work with!

David & Kelsey were AWESOME! They were barely seen or heard outside of asking to make specific shots for the video. I have no doubt that I will be writing another review once I see the final product. I have no doubts about how awesome the video and the short will turn out. I will say that although Kelsey & David were strangers to start, they definitely fit in and felt like family the moment their day started. I really appreciate you both! Thank you!

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!!!

I met Kelsey and David of Charles Lauren Films on one of my wedding shoots. And boy, they're great to work with! As you'll see from their examples, their work is stunning. It's cinematic because their background is in film. And that's the biggest differentiating factor when finding the right company to shoot your wedding. I suggest them highly, you won't go wrong.
