Ocken Photography is known for our documentary photography approach to weddings, and Chris recently spoke with Chicago Style Weddings magazine about just that. He’s quoted on page 392 (394 of the digital version) of the most recent issue in an article about photojournalism and photographic trends. Chris explained his approach as a “more documentary, realistic style” that really showcases the bride and groom’s style “rather than setting up shots and doing lots of post-production work. Most all of my brides appreciate not ‘seeing’ me much during the day as I work unobtrusively to capture the emotion and setting of what’s happening around me,” he said.
Each of the Ocken siblings works according to these general guidelines, so you’re bound to be pleased — and maybe even surprised — by the moments we capture when you don’t even know we’re there. Kind of like Batman… Click here to see if your wedding date is open.
