Shot: A Journey Into Risk, Tragedy, and Faith

Got the opportunity to make this Kickstarter video. Peter's story is inspiring and challenging to me and I can't wait to read the book. Please consider contributing to the fundraiser.

It's a book that tells the true story of Dara and Peter DeSoto, a couple who sold everything they owned in 2005 and moved their family of six to El Salvador to serve as missionaries. A year and a half later, Dara was at home with their children when she received a message that Peter had been shot in the neck by a masked gunman.

Cassandra and Zac in Palm Springs

There's always something magical about weddings in the desert. I loved this classy wedding with all the beautiful details and delicious food. The wedding took place at the Charles Farrell Estate in Palm Springs. Charles was a movie star during the silent era and was one of the first Hollywood Moguls responsible for putting Palm Springs on the map. He started the first racket club and made the area a trendy spot for celebrities to vacation.

Rya and Josh's Montana Wedding

"In all the years I spent looking for you, the one thing I never expected was that you'd already be the mother of our children..." Josh said to his bride during their vows. Please enjoy this story of a beautiful blended family coming together in the picturesque countryside near Glacier National Park, Montana. Be sure to check the wedding blogs it has been featured on at Rocky Mountain Bride, Wedding Fanatic, and The Knot as well.

Want to Crash a Weddding?

Chad and Jessica want you at their wedding. Earlier this year we put together a film telling their story, and since then it has been gaining lots of exposure. The film tells their love story, but the idea they have for their wedding is what's crazy. They are inviting the general public to attend the wedding reception. I've never heard of anything like it - I could never do it. But you know what, they're taking a risk and trying something new, and I love that. Whether you like this idea or not, they are shaking things up.

This film also marks the beginning of a new tool in the Forrey Films arsenal. The MoVI by Freefly is a gimbal, camera stabilization device, that we started using this year and we can't say enough about it. It's an amazing tool.  In fact, this film was our first production with it, and Freefly used one of our shots in a promotional video that was shown at the 2015 NAB conference in Las Vegas. Chad and Jessica's story has also been featured on Thrillist Los Angeles and yesterday clips from the video were shown on an ABC News report. All pretty exciting stuff, and we can't wait to see what's in store for their wedding later this month. Find out more at
