We might not know you (yet) but we hope to learn about you inside and out. What makes you cry? What makes you laugh? What makes you think? You are here for a very important reason. Whatever exciting, beautiful, painful, amazing, wonderful, crazy, utterly-human adventure you're on right now, we want to hear your story uncensored and unfiltered.
We're listeners. We're storytellers. We're artists. We're Bella Luna Films.
We are a husband-wife cinematography team based in the Seattle area. Our second date ever involved Annie filming Logan for an art project in college. Once we both graduated from the University of Washington studying film, media, and art, we combined our training with our passion for storytelling to give life to Bella Luna Films. Now we serve couples and individuals in Washington and beyond, sharing stories to the world.
Annie: "I never thought that I would be a filmmaker someday. I come from a family of doctors, dentists, accountants, and engineers. I went through many drastic career transitions, but one value throughout them all stayed the same - I wanted to participate in the meaning-making of people's lives and experiences. There's nothing more thrilling for me as when our work moves another person to awe, wonder, or even tears. To be able to deliver a message about our raw humanity is so powerful and absolutely magical. It is empathy in its purest form."
Logan: “It wasn’t until I met Annie that I discovered the art of film. She asked me to act as a model in one of her class films. We started dating quite soon afterwards. It was then that Annie encouraged me to apply to the Media & Communications program at the University of Washington. I finally got my hands on what it was like to shoot and edit a final project. Other than being a tech geek, I loved seeing the different ways we could capture a single emotion or feeling, and replay it over and over."
You are unique. We know it. We don't have templates, we don't have posing lists, and we won't get in your way. We are flies on the wall who get to part of your life for a brief moment. Our main goal is for your personality shine through and keeping it as natural as possible.
Just for you. We call ourselves a "boutique business" because we are all about going above and beyond for our select clients. Amazing service and creativity is given at 110% when we focus on a limited number of projects a year. We'll give you and your film our undivided attention.
We want to make you cry. In a good way, of course. If you're a sappy sentimentalist like we are, you're in the in the right place. Some films make you laugh, some films make you go "aww...", our films just. make. you. cry.
Last words: We love people infinitely more than we love things. It's the beautiful, nuanced emotions throughout the day that usually go unnoticed that we focus on. The tears, the laughter, the heartbreak, the pauses, the hugs and kisses - this is why we do what we do. Filmmaking is how we live in this world with intention and purpose. Through our work, we are reminded of the human capacity to love, to be brave, to empathize, and to make a difference. Our collective stories are meant to be shared with the world - to inspire; to connect; to make others feel.
Ellen Degeneres said it best: "Here are the values that I stand for: honesty, equality, kindness, compassion, treating people the way you want to be treated and helping those in need. To me, those are traditional values."
"Annie and Logan are not only two of the nicest, chillest people you’re going to meet, they’re also hard-working professionals who are an absolute dream to work with. It’s about seven months after our wedding and I still haven’t made it through our video without tears streaming down my face. They created a video better than we could ever have imagined. They’re extremely flexible, creative and worth every damn penny."
