Distinctive bridal portraits

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!
