stop motion. 2011.


31 december 2011 2011 was a wonderful year for us, personally and professionally.  aperture's family grew by the bounds, as we've made some wonderful friendships along the way.  we pushed ourselves creatively and produced some of our favorite work to date (photographically, and musically).  on a personal level, we bought our first home and are happy to put down roots in our dear clintonville.

many thanks to everyone who's made this year a blessing for us.  a few stop motion moments from this year are below. here's to a new year of new friendships, on-going conversations, incredible music and the never-ending love.  h & p

johanna + drew | german village scooter engagement portraits.


johanna and drew approached us about creating a specific, nostalgic piece of art as a save-the-date for their destination wedding in florence. so we jumped at the idea of using photography as a means to attaning that end piece. we collaborated on the project, shooting photographs in german village but using florentine backdrops for their final piece.  here are a few photographs from the shoot and one of our test ideas for their save-the-date cards.  we had so much fun working on this! special thanks to Caitlin Didier at Capital City Scooters for all her help with the shoot, and for lending us a beautiful scooter!


aleks panovska | hoover dam lifestyle portraits.


aleks is a constant mode of inspiration, absolutely hilarious and always surprising me with her talents [a seasoned triathlon athlete, a self-taught ukulele master and a budding expert in international politics, to name a few]. her three-day creative session from this past fall slowly turned into a three-month project, and we cannot wait to share the results. all concepts and visual cues for these sessions were collaborations between aleks and aperture, with the help of the incredibly talented whitney moore for styling. and be on the lookout for her more industrial / architectural line of work under corvid design [coming soon]. these photos don't even begin to show the breadth of images we collaborated on. we hope you enjoy.
