We found this quote and feel it really captures our message:
“[Experience] is a matter of sensibility and intuition, of seeing, and hearing the significant thing, of paying attention at the right moments, of understanding and coordinating. Experience is not what happens to a man; it is what a man does with what happens to him.– Aldous Huxley

Bob took a group of kids from CARTI in Arkansas to visit the great city of Chicago. We toured the cities many museums and sites, shop and had wonderful food and a great time. This photograph is the view outside our hotel on State Street. Photo by Bob Ocken
We are featured in the new Arkansas Bride magazine. Check out our photograph in the “Photographer Favorite” section. Guess which photo Bob took? Hint – it’s the classic and timeless one. We think it’s very “Town and Country”.
Keep an eye out for our photography featured in the new ad for Proposals Dress Shop located in the Heights in Arkansas Bride Magazine.
Congratulations to all the newly engaged couples. We invite you to see all our gorgeous images online and give use a call for your custom wedding quote.
A photograph of the Noland brothers, Jack, Henry, and Tommy. A moment in time captured forever. A special thanks to their mom for letting me spend some time photographing them. Fun kids are great to capture.
Our brides never stop smiling! Look for Ruthie Cobb and Jordan McReynolds — bridal portraits by Bob — soon to appear in wedding magazines.
Ocken Photography in Little Rock has signed on to be the official photography company for CARTI fundraising events such as the Tour de Rock. This event falls right in line with Bob’s love of cycling. His family participates each year by riding their bikes more than 10 miles.
Bob took a trip to Baton Rouge, LA (get it?) to photograph Rachel Robert and Chase Menard’s wedding at an amazing church. The St. Joseph Cathedral was originally constructed in 1789, and it was a pleasure to document a wedding in such a glorious structure. Their reception was held at the equally beautiful Old Governor’s Mansion, and Rachel made a stunningly beautiful bride.
Congratulations to Dr. Ted and Lori Jolley on their new baby, Piper. She is 5 weeks old and her sister, Lucy, is her biggest fan.
