Rhino Photo

It’s very funny, I shot a photograph of a Rhino at the Little Rock, Arkansas Zoo in 1996 when I was working or the Associated Press.  I keep seeing that photo all over the place, I just saw it in the Houston Chronical.  I have seen it in papers in Europe.  I seemed to be haunted by a photo o a rhino, and that’s a good thing!  What do you think?

First Dance Fever

Put a little spring in your step — it’s time for the first dance! Be sure to check out page 418 (digital page 420) of the latestChicago Style Weddings magazine to see our photograph sprawled out all over. This shot is one of my favorites and was taken at the Wilder Mansion outside Chicago.

Photos Get Social (along with everything else)

Yet again, Chris Ocken was quoted in Chicago Style Weddings magazine on page 396 (398 in the digital version) in a story about top photography trends this year.  “It’s essential to make photos viewable on iPhone and iPads and to allow brides access to smaller versions of their images for Facebook, Twitter, and emailing,” Chris said. “In our immediate society, brides and everyone else have come to expect quick and easy access to images from just about anywhere.”

How to Hire a Photographer

Chicago Style Weddings talked with Chris for an article in their current issue about how to hire a photographer. It’s on page 376 (378 in the digital version). “It is also very important that a couple know what style they want — traditional, journalistic, commercial, or a style that combines several elements, like my own fine art documentary approach,” Chris explains in the story. At Ocken Photography we pride ourselves on letting your day unfold while we make wonderful photographs without getting in your way. Click here to see if your wedding date is open.
