We make wedding films. 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 is 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 the connotation there!

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- you see that our entire self-worth and self-image is tied to making films that meet our high standards and that we love the responsibility of capturing weddings, maybe you will decide to book with us! After all, what do you have to loose except a lifetime of memories...

The best part about getting a wedding video is that you don't have to worry about savoring the day as it passes in a blur. You can be comforted by knowing it is on video to watch to your heart's content afterward.

And what a video! David and Kelsey were great to work with and delivered such an amazing video. You can tell they do this all the time because it was so professionally done. They were great to work with on using our selection of music with their creative freedom. They also added our slide show (we gave them the jpgs and songs) to one of the DVDs. All around great job and very organized and easy to work with.

Charles Lauren Films were simply AMAZING!!!! My husband and I can't say enough great things about them! They are a husband and wife team who are warm, creative and have a true passion for film. My husband and I had a big wedding and video was very important to us. We visited a ton of videographers and just didn't feel that WOW factor until we met with them. Their work is simply amazing. Our wedding was extremely detailed and they captured EVERYTHING. From the napkins to the rose pedals..to the signage...no detail went unnoticed. Not to mention it was approximately a 15 hour day!!

Kelsey and David did an amazing job editing our video as well and truly capturing ""our story" through film. Not sure how they were able to condense such a long day and make it a movie to remember..but they did! We continue to watch the video over and over again and it's definitely a hit at our parties (even over a year later).

Charles Lauren Films surpassed our expectations. If you are looking for the best in the business. Go with them.

Hands down, the best wedding videographers around. Not only are Kelsey and David the sweetest couple, but they are amazing at their work. Sound was really important to us in our video. We had seen so many wedding videos that just showed special moments, but to us that is what photography is for. They listened to our requests and made a spectacular video that will allow us to relive that special day for the rest of our lives. The video captured the wedding day perfectly, they captured every detail. They were 100% professional and were great in communication before the big day. On the actual day, they were not "in the way" at all. I hardly even knew they were there capturing some of the best footage ever! I would highly recommend them. You will not be disappointed.

I cannot even begin to describe how amazing Kelsey and David were and how excited and thankful we are that we had them as members of our wedding team. I was brought to tears and excitement over videos I saw off of their website and immediately wanted to meet with them. After meeting with them, we knew that we wanted them for our wedding. Because we lived in Tx at the time, after we met with them in CA, they mailed us more sample videos. I watched them so many times and knew they were the people we needed to capture our vision and essence of the day. It was SO amazing to be with them. I'd love to say we "worked" with them, but it wasn't work at all. We had David and Kelsey both shooting at our wedding and I would very very very highly recommend everyone do that. What you see on their website is truly what you receive back from them. They are creative, genuine, and truly want to make your video a masterpiece. I consider them a blessing in our lives, especially after so many people were not able to attend our wedding and truthfully - there were so many parts of the wedding that we missed or don't remember, that this video is going to be our lifetime treasure!!! I have seen AWFUL video productions, and helped friends and family members through terrible videographer scenarios... and believe me when I say... There's truly no one better than Charles Lauren Films.

Honestly the easiest people to work with and the BEST! I loved my video. I hired them, they called to confirm a few days before, they showed up, I didn't even notice them and then they presented me with a BEAUTIFUL wedding video. It was amazing! I loved both Charles and Kelsey. They were both so sweet, especially Kelsey! Kelsey did our wedding and she was soooo nice and although she stayed inconspicuous during the wedding, she got shots from all angles and got the best moments of our wedding. I didn't think they would have the video finished so soon, but a couple weeks after the wedding, even before we got to settle down after the wedding, she e-mailed us the video and our whole family was in tears at how beautifully it came out. Awesome job and cheaper than most other companies! Seriously totally worth every penny we spent on them!

They sit down with you and discuss the options for your video and they really listen to what you want. We also used them for our engagement and wedding photography. We couldn't have been happier with the results. We highly recommend them!

Of all the vendors we dealt with and had for our big day, Charles Lauren Films was the best (and I'm pretty happy with ALL of our vendors).
The quality and level of professionalism is second to none.
They blended in and we were never aware of the video camera. We and all our guests felt very comfortable around them. The camera work and image quality was superior to every other wedding videographer I have seen.
We watched their samples and we loved the videos they had edited and we didn't even know these people.
I'm an editor for feature films and I must say, I don't even think I can cut weddings better than these guys.
They edited a 5 minutes re-cap video for us and it is phenomenal. I've shared it with several professionals in the industry and they said it is the best wedding video they have ever seen.
And I must agree.
Also, I must tell you that they are very aware of the photographer and they do a fine job in staying out of his way.
A+ FIVE STARS!
Charles Lauren Films will make you look like something out of a movie! I'm very frugal and they are worth EVERY penny spent.

We would highly recommend Charles Lauren Films to anybody and everybody! We saw samples from about 8 other companies and CL is by far the best combination of value, quality, and professionalism. We only had David (aka Charles) for the day and he was just great! We barely noticed he was there, but he sure didn't miss a thing! He captured all of our important moments, the details, and much more. It was so amazing to be able to re-live the day through his creative eye and wonderful story-telling. He also provided wireless lapel microphones, which many other videographers in the same price range did not offer, so the audio is excellent during our ceremony.

Before and after the wedding, he was very responsive, flexible, and accommodating to all of our requests. He even put together a highlight film within 2 weeks so that we could show it at our East Coast reception the following month. The final video is definitely "movie"-like; he blended in music, speech, and images in a manner unmatched in anything else that we saw. He also was able to add in our self-created wedding photo slideshow into our finished DVD.

We received many great comments on our video and we are so happy that we chose Charles Lauren!

Kelsey and David were absolutely the best! Not only was their work so unique, beautiful, and different, but they themselves were wonderful! They were so friendly and sincere! You can totally tell that they love what they do and love to please their clients! We loved our Love Story video, slideshow, Same Day Edit, Wedding Highlight, and final video! What really stood out from their work was how beautiful their editing was. When we received a video of their work to review, we found ourselves entertained throughout the whole video of complete strangers! We knew, then and there that we can show our videos to others and they would not be bored. The editing was movie style and not chronological with great transitions and movement to the music! We watched many videos and fast forwarded or ejected the DVDs of so many. They were hardly edited and looked like anyone took the video. Kelsey and David's work was beautiful, unique, and entertaining! You knew they put a lot of time into it! Also, they are so genuine and sweet and still keep in touch via cards and e-mail! We recommend them to all our friends that are getting married! Hands down, they are the best! It's one special day that you can't do over so why hire someone that's not the best? Love, love, love them!!!!

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful... this was one of our favorite purchases of the wedding... The videos they create are so artistic, not only in the editing process, but also in the angles they capture in the actual filming process. It is definitely a reasonable cost for the product that you get from them. (And they were recently voted one of LA's top videographers, according to The Knot magazine.) One wonderful surprise from them... at the reception, they did a quick same-day-edit and set it up to show on a table next to the dj, at the reception. Our guests were able to see a glimpse of the day so far, all beautifully put together. I would definitely recommend this company to everyone!!!

I began researching videographers for my two-weekend, three-day Indian wedding a year in advance. I had done extensive research, met with, and sampled videos from many popular Southern California vendors. No one came close to Charles Lauren Films.

David and Kelsey responded to my RFP quickly, and were amenable to working with me and meeting my wants and needs. They really took their time with me during our initial consultation, were attentive, patient, and addressed all of my concerns. I left the meeting feeling very comfortable and confident that they could do the job and deliver the product the way I wanted.

We filmed a "Love Story" to be shown at our reception--and spent a couple of hours interviewing with them. When we watched the final product, we were amazed by their talent and editing skills. I was so afraid we would sound silly as we had a lot of bloopers during the interviewing, but without even having to say anything--they extracted just what they needed to make the whole thing come together. Our guests were blown away by the concept of the love story and what an entertaining introduction it was to the evening. No one could stop talking about it!

They also made 3 highlight reels--one for each event. We received them so quickly and were able to send to our guests and friends and family all over the world who missed our events. These went over really well also; many of our friends and family said they felt like they were there! Again, the editing and the skill that went into making these were phenomenal! I had given David and Kelsey a music guide with a mix of Indian and American songs--and they did such a fantastic job placing them and balancing the musical selections. I can't wait to see the full video!

Overall, David and Kelsey are true talents with film school backgrounds. They know exactly what they are doing, and you can trust them to do a professional and quality job filming your wedding. I put my non-traditional wedding in their hands, and I was beyond pleased with results. They don't give you a cookie-cutter product, and I could tell it was personalized to my preferences.

They were a delight to work with as well--very organized, and genuinely nice and caring!

I began researching videographers for my two-weekend, three-day Indian wedding a year in advance. I had done extensive research, met with, and sampled videos from many popular Southern California vendors. No one came close to Charles Lauren Films.

David and Kelsey responded to my RFP quickly, and were amenable to working with me and meeting my wants and needs. They really took their time with me during our initial consultation, were attentive, patient, and addressed all of my concerns. I left the meeting feeling very comfortable and confident that they could do the job and deliver the product the way I wanted.

We filmed a "Love Story" to be shown at our reception--and spent a couple of hours interviewing with them. When we watched the final product, we were amazed by their talent and editing skills. I was so afraid we would sound silly as we had a lot of bloopers during the interviewing, but without even having to say anything--they extracted just what they needed to make the whole thing come together. Our guests were blown away by the concept of the love story and what an entertaining introduction it was to the evening. No one could stop talking about it!

My brother and sister in-law hired Charles Lauren so I was familiar with their work. When it came time for me to get married I didn't even question it, I knew I wanted to hire them too. They were so fair and resonable, came right on time and filmed everything I wanted. They always got the footage without me feeling like they were ever on top of me throughout the day. They made a little highlight video, then another highlight video on top of my full length video. It was like a professional movie, so beautiful. They edited it perfectly and added in such sweet songs. My husband and I cherish the video and are so happy we went with Charles Lauren. I would recommend them 100 times over!!
