We are proud to publish our best wedding, portrait and commercial photography for 2010. The photographs are a mix of our all three of us, Bob, Chris and Jennifer, with some assistance thrown in for fun. This work comes from all over the world — Israel to northern Michigan. And yes, in hour hometowns of Chicago, Little Rock and Baton Rouge.
Working with Krystal Bennet of A Pinch of Lovely is always a joyful experience! Here at Ocken Photography we follow her blog weekly and have fallen in love with her style and grace as she walks us all through the latest trends with her amazing designs. Krystal lives and works in Baton Rouge but lately we have seen her work all over the nation! We are excited for the great things to come her way this year and excited for many great opportunities to work with her.

Maya Toral and David Yuen braved the November elements to head down to Sox Park for outdoor photos. Oh it was cold, but we persevered . Then we all headed inside to Union Station and finally back to the Hotel Palomar for the nuptials and reception. It was a bit cold but a great time for everybody, especially since we where watching football on a phone.
Cassandra and Clay were very brave to host an outdoor October wedding. Not to fear, the weather was perfect at the Wilder Mansion in Elmhurst. Enjoy the photos!
Huge thanks to Dan Jones at Films By Dan for his patience and dedication to excellence really gave us something to be proud to have out there as a face for Ocken Photography! And also to the Jesse Hiatt Band and Jesse’s song “I’m Ready.” We are really excited to have this original piece as a part of our promo! It expresses the upbeat excitement we have capturing photographs!
Both Dan’s cinematography and Jesse’s New Orleans style band are available for booking for your wedding celebration and events!
Also thanks to Lois Laurent, Danielle Laurent and James Huval and James Peck for also participating in creating such a wonderful promo!
Here are some stills from the day too! Enjoy!

Another email conversation that really touched home this Holiday. We understand all too well everything you loose when a love one passes away. I am so honored and blessed everyday by my clients and my talent to document their life and relationships with my camera! THANKS SO MUCH for the reminder, Anne-Marie, that what we do as photographer means much more than we may know.

This makes my heart smile. You have a beautiful family and they make my passion come to life! Thanks again! If you have not already, you should be getting your frame from Charley very soon. I know he is done with it.
Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Sure, please feel free to use it on the blog! Thanks again for a job well done! I don’t know if I ever told you but my dad was a professional photographer/videographer who died the year after our wedding. I was so sad to think he will never be there to take pictures of my family. Thanks to you I have found someone that he would be proud of to fill his shoes for me.
