It was dry when the CARTI Tour de Rock began its annual fund raiser to help fund cancer treatment in Arkansas. By mile 50 there was a flash flood warning for the state.

Mary Catherine, helped by her mother and cousins, worked to created a bit of photographic magic at the Wildwood Center for the Performing Arts. It was a wonderfully warm day and waiting for the late afternoon sun made the session all the more mystical. Mary Catherine and her fiance, Dr. Stephen Paulus, were married April 6 in Little Rock, Arkansas. We wish the couple many blessings as they start their new life together in Kansas City.

We started our southern wedding season a bit early this year — thank you! — with a wedding in Chicago and Dallas. Congratulations to Lauren and Rob, who were married at the Highland Park Presbyterian Church in Dallas. Their reception was held at the beautiful Marie Gabrielle Restaurant and Gardens. The couple lives and works in Dallas, we look forward to working with them throughout the years.

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.”

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!

A perfect day!

Congratulations to Jordan and Ben Cargill, who where married at the Galloway Chapel in Ferndale, Arkansas on October 20. They live in Dallas and we are so happy they choose Ocken Photography to celebrate with them and a very small collection of friends and family.  We are honored to be a part of their 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!

Check out the brand new redesigned Ordu Gold time trial bike. With new ergonomic and aerodynamic upgrades you can go as fast as it looks. Bob and Ocken Photography have been working with Orbea for close to a year now. “I have one of the best jobs ever!”  — Enjoy!
