We are a girlfriend and boyfriend filmmaking team specializing in modern elopement and wedding films.
We grew up in the same small town of Cartersville, Georgia, but never met until working as graduate assistants in the film checkout lab at Georgia State University. Anna had started filming weddings just before she started grad school, and with Antonio's extensive knowledge of the technical and creative aspects of filmmaking, he fell naturally into our team at Pine Trail Films.
Pine Trail Films is named after Pine Mountain in Cartersville, one of the many places we both visited frequently as we were growing up and where we went for one of our first dates.
When we're not filming stuff together, we can usually be found hiking, rock climbing, watching an Atlanta United game, or eating Taco Bell.
Hi, I'm Anna! I have always had a passion for telling people's stories, whether that be through film, writing, or photography. I became instantly hooked on filming weddings after a friend trusted me with capturing hers, and I have been incredibly fortunate to do what I love ever since.
I am the primary shooter, editor, and run the business side of things around here at Pine Trail Films.
I received a Bachelor of Arts in Communication from Shorter University in 2015 and my Master of Arts in Film, Video, and Digital Imaging from Georgia State University in 2019.
Antonio is my trusty second shooter and second half. He is an award-winning director and cinematographer, with a passion for many different styles of filmmaking and experience in narrative fiction, documentary, and branded video. When he's not helping me film weddings, he works in the camera department in the commercial film industry.
Antonio is the second shooter on every wedding, drone pilot, and tech guru extraordinaire.
He studied film in both undergraduate and graduate school at Georgia State University and received his Master of Arts in Film, Video, and Digital Imaging in 2018.
