Nancy McGee – Mother of the Bride

I just saw the first of the pictures, they are great! Thank you so much for all of your hard work, and especially your enthusiasm. It is was catching and comes through in your pictures — exactly what Kelly and I hoped to see. Thanks for making Kelly and Kevin’s new life together so memorable. You certainly have a gift and we all appreciate your talents and YOU.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
