Wedding Experience Matters

Newest NewlywedsWe all get lucky once in a while. (You’re feeling that way right now as you think about your partner to be, right?)

But you don’t want to leave things to chance when it comes to your wedding photographs. When the fanfare and wonder of the big day is over, your photographs will remain. Over time, they become your memories.

So on your one special day, it’s important to choose a photographer who’s already been down the aisle numerous times. Pick someone who’s prepared for (and even thrives on!) the pressure that comes with the just-happening-once joy of a wedding.

After years of photographing ceremonies and receptions of all sizes and styles, Ocken Photography has the knowledge, creativity, and quick-thinking poise under pressure to make sure your memories and one-of-a-kind moments are expertly captured, without disrupting the emotion and flow of your celebration.

Testing your comfort zone with the CARTI kids

CartiKids-2291fbEvery year I (Bob) volunteer my photography services to document the CARTI Kids having the time of their lives. These kids have all received treatment at CARTI for cancer. Some are still being treated and some have rods in there backs. When I mentioned that to a climbing guide, he about flipped out. I think we changed some hearts with our visit to the Horseshoe Canyon Ranch. To see all the wonderful photographs I took go to the CARTI Facebook page or request a link from me at bob@ockenphotography.com

Mystical Bridal Session – Mary Catherine

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.

Woulda Shoulda Coulda | Choose Ocken Photography

There are many reason to choose a photographer, so we outlined reasons for not choosing a particular photographer in a fun, funny and not so serious look at ourselves. Remember NONE of these applies to Ocken Photograph – we are happy to assure you your day will be documented to our highest standards. Thanks to Kyle Hamman at KBH Media for all his hard work – if you’re looking for great video, warm personalities and a wonderful person to work with, give Kyle a call!
