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.

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.

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.

We wanted to tell you how much we loved having you do our wedding photography. I was so emotional (and stressed!) that day, and you were such a big help. We just really appreciate you and we loved your fun personality. We love they way there is a picture of nearly everything possible — and all the pictures that we didn’t even know about. Some of the things you did with the light are amazing! We will treasure them forever and are so happy to have such a great set of pictures to remind of us of the special day.

The Ockens were amazing. They captured our day beautifully with elegant and artistic photos. We were happy to see moments we didn’t remember from our whirlwind day.

Chris was fantastic to work with: casual, accommodating, and a helpful supporter during the wedding day when my family was too busy to calm me down! If my husband and I had to plan our wedding all over again, we’d make sure Chris was involved.

Chris Ocken did a fantastic job capturing the essence of our day! My husband and I appreciated the amazing quality of his work, as well as his fun, easy-going personality. Chris caught all of the unique moments and really told the story of our special day through pictures. We have already recommended the Ockens to a number of our friends and
will continue to do so for years to come!

Chris and Jennifer Ocken were fantastic. Their pictures were beautiful, they were so incredibly friendly and willing to meet and discuss our interests in what we wanted, and the results were perfect. They made our picture-taking as painless as possible, actually making it quite fun and were SO prepared for every moment that our pictures were better than we could have hoped. We recommend Ocken Photography with utmost certainty.
