Thank You Notes


Thank You Notes


Thank You for the Thank You Notes! 

Our goal when we started making commissioned films for clients in 1998 was to use our videographic talents to impress and delight. Since then, we have been blessed with so many cards of appreciation and phone calls expressing how important our films were for those we serve. Here are some recent examples!

 

 

“Ryan and I are both crying - and I didn't even cry on my actual wedding day! You have captured all of the little details beautifully. We are in complete awe. This is the story of not only our wedding day, but our love that we will share with our children, 
grandchildren, and maybe even our great-grandchildren someday. 

Thank you doesn't seem like it's enough, but thank you from the bottom of my heart...

XOXOXO,

Lisa”

Hello You Two,

 

THANK YOU so much for a wonderful Valentine gift. You both did an amazing job! We were both in tears as we watched it. You truly captured every moment and that was only the highlight. Thank you for your hard work and endless hours both behind the camera and in the edit room. Amazing... AMAZING WORK!

 

All our love,

"The video is so beautiful!!! We love it - thank you so much!! 

We just watched our incredible wedding video (since it's our 1 month anniversary!) and wanted to tell you again how much we love it. You did such an unbelievable job - everyone we show it to can't believe how beautiful it is. We can't thank you enough for capturing our day and we will cherish the video forever. 

Thanks again :)

"Kelsey and David,

Thank you so so much - this is incredible!  You guys did an amazing job, I absolutely love it!!  The video brings back all the happy memories of our wedding day and it is also so meaningful to have all that footage of my grandma - she passed away in November and I'm so grateful that she was there on our wedding day and that we now have all these beautiful photos and videos of her to keep forever.  Thank you for capturing her and our entire day so perfectly.

Thank you again!!

"Sandy and I would like to thank you so much for being a part of our wonderful marriage. Both of you worked so hard to bring our experiences to life. The entire presentation was breathtaking. We will continue to share these memories with our families, enjoying the time time we spend together, laughing and reminiscing back on that day. "

Good luck and Thank You so much! 

Lorena and Sandy

"Thank you so much for all the hard work you put into our video. We truly appreciate it. It meant so much to us that you finished our video so quickly. Thank you again. "

Sincerely,

Eric + Becky


We just wanted to take a moment to send you a thank you note. You created the most amazing video of our wedding in May. I have watched it so many times I am surprised I haven't worn it out already. It still brings a smile to my face every time. My husband has already learned that if he ever gets himself intro trouble, all he needs to do is pop in your masterpiece and he's off the hook. And it isn't just us that love your work. Everybody who has seen it (& trust me....I show it to everyone) can't believe how professional, thorough, creative and absolutely prefect it is! You truly went above and beyond. In face, several of my friends were so impressed that they have already booked you for their weddings! Not only did your final product completely blow me away, but your great attitude up to and during the event & your promptness in getting the video to us was outstanding. I still haven't gotten my pictures from my photographer. Maybe you should go into that market too!" 

 

Thanks, 

Kate and David Vokoun

Charles Lauren Films has done a variety of events for me, such as a school project, Nursing School Pinning Ceremony, Retirement Part and Love Story - and MY WEDDING!  I was extremely satisfied with each of them. From the beginning, I was impressed with their work, which I consider masterpieces. David Pluskat did exactly what was asked from him and he does it with creativity, fun, passion and perfection. 

Their prices? Very reasonable, especially with his high quality work. David was efficient and extremely reliable. I recommend him with the highest regards for any occasion!"

You guys did an absolutely fantastic job. We were completely blown away by every aspect of it -- the spectacular shots you took, your presentation of our wedding day story, and above all, the amazing editing job you did. The production value was incredibly high. Thank you so much. It was completely worth the wait and I respect all the time it must have taken for you to compose this. I'm excited and  proud to share this with all m family and friends.

We absolutely LOVED the video. Chip and  were so impressed with the quality and the creative shots you had in it. You are so talented and we are so glad that we had you to capture the feelings and moments of our wedding day. It is fabulous! 

 

Michele and Philip

We got the video...honestly, it would have been worth waiting even longer for it. It was absolutely perfect! You guys did such an incredible job, and it really even exceeded our expectations. Melissa has watched it several times already, and everyone she has shown it to has fallen in love with it. Thank you both for such a perfect wat to remember our wedding, and rest assured we;l refer people your way when the times comes. Thank you both again for everything!'

Alex and Melissa


"We decided that we definitely did want our day to be captured on film. Normally I would turn to my own brother for a project such as this, since filming and editing is something he does in his “spare time,” but since he is in my wedding party I need him in front of the camera, not behind. So, thus began the frustrating quest to find someone who could capture the day in a beautiful way without the NEED to resort to fancy tricks of editing to make the film worthwhile to watch.

Anyone can learn to add fancy special effects, but you need a good product to begin with. We were having trouble finding someone with an artistic eye…well, one that didn’t want to charge a fortune, anyways. We hadn’t planned on spending much for videography; but after seeing what was out there, we decided to spend just a bit more in order to get a good product.

Again, Tony and I both fell in love with this vendor! It is a team of Charles and his wife. Tony and I really liked their website demo AND their prices; and after meeting with the both of them and getting to see an actual finished product…wow! We were ready to sign about 5 minutes into the movie!!! Their films are absolutely GORGEOUS!!! Yes, they do have effects added in editing…but they aren’t the “cheesy” fades of the past.

THIS is some beautiful stuff! And, like I mentioned before, they do their filming in an artistic way, so the movie is just beautiful throughout. Yes, movie. This isn’t just a video capture of the day…it feels like you are watching a feature film. We are excited to be working with them."

Hi Kelsey & David,

Thank you so much for the video, we watched it yesterday and we were amazed on the outcome.
Both of you definitely have a gift for making wedding day seem like a movie. We are very pleased with the video and hopefully we can use you again for the sake of having another video. We are still in awe on the work that the both of you have done. We cannot thank you enough on the wonderful job the both of you have done. Hopefully we can see each other soon.

Take care

Roque & Marissa

Thank you David and Kelsey. We absolutely love our video. The opening of the video is just amazing. It could not be more perfect. It's like you read my mind with picking out the perfect lines from everyone's toast.

Brides & soon to be brides, if I can give one piece of advice, it's to get a wedding VIDEOGRAPHER! I watch this video weekly, seriously. I make Jake watch it monthly haha. It's the best investment we made throughout the whole wedding.
