Professional + Personal = Perfect Wedding Day Photos
Bob was absolutely wonderful to work with. He’s very personable and wants to try and get to know the bride and groom and cater to your style. As a bride without much knowledge about the photography business and what “shots” I wanted, he knew how to capture it all and his suggestions were great. Overall, I was well pleased with the selection of proofs from the bridal portraits as well as the wedding day. He has a great demeanor and sense of humor that kept everyone light, yet also exerted initiative to keep things moving when taking group shots. With all the stress that can come with the wedding day, I knew that I didn’t have to worry about the photographer (being on time, getting the right shots, etc) which was a huge relief! I really liked that on the day of the wedding he took photos that told a story rather than still, posed pictures. The classic wedding photos of course were posed, but I loved the way he captured, smiles and body language, etc. when you weren’t looking. While the price was a bit out of our range, we understand why now (such great shots!) and realize that splurging on a photographer was totally worth it. I would definitely recommend Ocken Photography to anyone looking for a wedding photographer, I now understand why some call him “one of the best in the business.”

Joanna and Christoper had their wedding at the Brookfield Zoo and they seemed to look a bit too tasty to the Lion.  Thank goodness for the thick glass between them!  Scary.

Check out Jordan Sims and Benjamin Cargill blog post on theweddingpost.net!  We are very excited to have the show our photos, it was such a perfect and fun day.  Enjoy!

Bob Ocken loves to shoot brides!  And nobody photographs brides like he does.  Ocken Photography only creates a handful of these caliber portraits a year, why not make your portrait one of them? Bob’s clientele are some the best and most exclusive brides in Arkansas and around the country. Bob says, ” I love pushing the boundaries of my creativity and to me this portrait feels like it was shot in the Caribbeans. But it was shot using only one flash in very exotic backyard in central Arkansas, no flight necessary.”  Enjoy!
