Eight Years, but who’s counting?

Think you’ve waited a long time to start thinking about your wedding album? Tindley and Huw were married in 2002, and in fact they were the last wedding Chris shot completely on film. Wow.

Anyway, since getting married they’ve been to grad school, had two children, and moved several times, including an international move that has them currently making their home in Dubai. But this summer, while back in the states for a visit, Tindley decided it was time to get her album finished. You may recognize her, actually — friends of Ocken Photography have been enjoying her wedding photos for years. It’s Tindley with her dad that pops up first on the OP website and makes an appearance in many of our ads.

This summer we headed to storage, dug deep for the film scanner, and got to work. We’re thrilled to report that the story of Tindley and Huw’s wedding is no less beautiful today than all those years ago — and you don’t have to take our word for it.

So, if you’ve been waiting for just the right time — or if creating an album had slipped your mind completely (despite our gentle reminders) — please be inspired by Tindley and Huw and consider this your invitation to relive your wedding all over again. We would love to work with you to put together an album that tells the story of your day.

Love, Sandcastles & Hope

After being at the Gulf Coast capturing client’s Fine Art Beach Portraits and evaluating the situation there, I have to say I am very proud of my American neighbors. There were many more vacationers there enjoying the beaches, the shops and the hotels then I expected. I don’t know what the numbers are as far as people traveling to that area, but I do say the energy was good and people were enjoying the beautiful Gulf Coast sunset!

Now it is time to save the beaches and wild life that are less fortunate. Please link your self with various organizations like Restore the Gulf (link below). And give what you can to help!

Here are some pictures from my sessions “at the beach with Jenn Ocken!”Thank to all my clients for taking the time to hang with me on the beach! Enjoy!

Buddhist Ceremony – Congrats! Amy & Josh

Did you know that a female can’t come in contact with a Buddhist monk? That was the first thing that was said to me when I arrived to Amy’s house for the ceremony honoring her and her new husband Josh! Much thanks to Amy and Josh for allowing Ocken Photography to be apart of there wedding weekend! We wish you many wonderful days and comforting nights together.

9 year-old Ocken starts her career…

Bob’s 9 year-old daughter, Maddy, assisted her dad and Jenn at a bridal shoot last week in northern Michigan. Jamie Anne (the bride) had a great time flirting with Maddy’s camera. At one point Maddy had such great confidence to ask her aunt Jennifer to move out of the way. Below is a sample of her work from the shoot, and

one was displayed as an 8×10 at the wedding. We are so proud of our little Maddy!
