I LOVE them!!! I do not know how we will ever decide which ones to get. There are just so many I really love, I don’t know how I will ever choose. I can’t get over how much I love them. I can’t believe how wonderful the ones in the pool are too! I am already envisioning my wall in the kitchen.

The artist’s book is really beautiful! It is a great collection of some of the really special moments from our wedding. We’re already enjoying looking through it.

Bob Ocken was amazing! He played a major role in making my wedding day

less stressful. Not only is he an amazing photographer, but he is fun and personable. My whole wedding party loved him and loved hanging out with him throughout the day. He was there for me, and made that very clear from the beginning.

— Little Rock, Arkansas, married January 2007

Ocken Photography did a wonderful job with our wedding. They were professional, easy to work with, organized and very laid back! They took all the anxiety and nerves out of wedding planning, and I knew the pictures from the day would be incredible — and they were!

Bob and his siblings are excellent photographers — fun to work with and very
accommodating! We loved having Bob at our wedding!

Jenn and Chris were FABULOUS!! They were so pleasant to work with throughout the entire planning process. The day of the wedding was chaotic, horrible weather, and quite a few unexpected events, but they made the most of it and we could not be any more pleased with the way our pictures turned out.

We really enjoyed working with Chris and highly recommend him to anyone
who wants to work with a professional photographer and all around great
person. He successfully captured candid moments during our wedding day
that translated into wonderful pictures.

Having the Ockens as our wedding photographers was one of the best decisions we made during our planning. They made us feel very comfortable on our big day. It really felt like we being photographed by our friends. The photos they took are fabulous — really beyond words. Our friends and relatives are raving about them! Also, I know that we will continue to use the Ockens for our family milestones.

Chris Ocken was wonderful to work with.
He was comfortable and funny all day long, and throughout the album process he has been completely helpful and flexible with everything.

I wanted to thank you again for the great job you did at our wedding. The photos turned out great and were exactly what we were looking for… everyone else loves them too! It’s hard to find a photographer who isn’t afraid to try new things and be different, but Jenn knew how to be creative and get the shots we wanted. We both highly recommend her.

Jennifer Ocken is by far one of the best photographers out there. I have never felt more comfortable with someone. I met with four different photographers before deciding to bring her from Chicago to Cleveland for my big day. That was the best decision I made! She took the time to meet everyone and know who was important to me so that she could capture them in her photos on my special day. She was extremely helpful in holding things, helping me out if I needed her, and acting like “one of my girls”! Her artistic eye is amazing! You don’t even know she is there and when you see your photos, they are absolutely amazing and beautiful. I can now look forward to having children and having Jennifer capture all of those wonderful moments.
— Cleveland, Ohio, married June 2006

He was a joy before and during the wedding. The pictures are literally works of art. He kept the mood light during the wedding day — even while he was keeping things moving along very very well. I couldn’t recommend Chris Ocken more.
