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!

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
