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.

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 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.

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.

I didn't expect to be getting a videographer this early. My wedding is still a little over a year away, but a friend referred me to their website and the first video that played brought me to tears!! I set up an appointment with them and met Kelsey, one of the owners at their studio. She is super fabulous and knows what she's talking about when it comes to wedding videos. She showed me a bunch of sample wedding videos-I could have watched them for hours!! This is a real company that cares about what they do. They have a passion for it, this isn't what I thought a wedding video was at all.

Charles Lauren Films truly created a beautiful video for my husband and I. They were the most important people in logging our day and truly were able to grasp the most important moments. I was sooo ecstatic when i saw the video, I was almost in tears~! They did such a great job! Most importantly, they were so easy to work with, so NICE!!! Kelsey was soooo sweet. Honestly, they were the easiest vendor to work with. I booked them, then confirmed a few days before the wedding, they showed up, stayed completely inconspicuous and yet still grasped the best moments of the night to be made into a VERY LOVELY video! 2 weeks after the wedding, before my husband and I even got settled down after all the out-of-town family guest chaos and honeymoon travel planning, I get an e-mail saying the video is ready. I watch it with my family and all of us were laughing, crying, and ear-to-ear in smiles! We loved ur work Kelsey! THank you soooooooooo much!!!!

I have to admit, I haven't yet gotten married so they haven't filmed my wedding yet. However, after going through pages and pages of a list of videographers, this was an EASY choice for my fiance and me. Their work is so artistic. And not just in the editing process, but also in the actual way that they FILM the event. This is a husband and wife team, so they obviously work very well together. And both are very personable and easy to be around. And the prices are VERY reasonable for the product that you get. I just learned that they were voted The Knot's best videographer for 2008 in the Los Angeles area. Woo-hoo!!!

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!!

Charles Lauren Films is an amazing vendor! They are professional and talented! My husband is very picky when it comes to anything film related---this company exceeded his expectations and now that our wedding is over we can cherish the video they made for us.

Charles Lauren Films were amazing! I would highly recommend them. I hired them for my daughter's wedding at Descanso Gardens and they put together a beautiful video. They were there early and video taped the still photographer taking photos, the guests coming in, and the musicians playing. I was very impressed and would highly recommend them to everyone!!

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!
