Our Story

The Ocken Photography approach involves much more than the way we make photographs. It’s also the way we create relationships by listening to you and discovering what you want for your wedding or portrait session or commercial shoot.

Bob, Chris, and Jenn Ocken are three siblings who have more than 25 years of experience with all types of photography—from portraits to campaign coverage to advertising images—but most of all we pride ourselves on our personal approach. We look forward to getting to know you so the pictures we create will capture the moments, details, and expressions that are most important to you.

We are confident of our professionalism, organization, and ability to be at ease in many situations. (And to have a calming effect on those around us!) We truly love what we do and believe this enjoyment is reflected in the photographs we produce.

We are expert travelers and are proud to have clients across the country and beyond.  Although we are based out of studio locations in Chicago, Little Rock and Baton Rouge, please don’t hesitate to contact us no matter your location, or the location of your event. We look forward to beginning a conversation.
