I had the pleasure of meeting with Matt Forrey of FORREY films recently and enjoyed hearing his story about his chosen profession. He loves telling stories through film and Las Vegas is lucky to welcome such a talented wedding cinematographer. As a side note, Matt and his wife Chariane recently got married in San Diego and we share the same anniversary of July 15th!
Below is a beautiful photograph of the two of them and some questions I asked to get to know him better. Hopefully, he’ll get to tell your story too!

Perfect Day Off? Hiking Mt. Kilimanjaro with my wife in the day, followed by a nice dinner at home with just me an her. Dinner would be a pepperoni and olive pizza with wine, followed by a good movie.
Stay in/or go out?
I enjoy going out, but not as much as staying in and making dinner with family and friends.
City or Beach?
A Beach by the City. I love the atmosphere of quiet beach town, but would also want to go to the city from time to time.
Name an exotic location you’d like to visit soon. Iceland
What is the best piece of advice you can offer a bride and groom on their wedding day?
Don’t sweat the small stuff and just enjoy the moment. Take it all in and have a blast!
