THANKS!

Thanks so much to all the clients who ordered personalized holiday cards this season! More than 2000 photo cards were ordered from Ocken Photography, and we had a particularly impressive response in the Baton Rouge market. These cards will be back next year, and remember that we can also design personalized thank you cards and note cards for use throughout the year!

I have appreciated working with all of you and wish you a safe Holiday Season. See you in 2008!

Jonn Richardson Video

Another of Jenn Ocken’s passions is blues performers, and she spends quite a lot of time documenting their performances. She created this photo diary of guitarist Jonn Richardson’s last two years — since he won the Albert King Award in 2005. The award is given to the most promising guitarist at the International Blues Challenge (IBC) in Memphis, TN. Get more information about the blues at http://www.blues.org/.

Engagement in the Rain

Erin and Tony had the best attitudes when the rain came pouring down on us during their engagement portrait! Erin, owner of A Stem Above florists, knows that when it comes to wedding events, the show must go on — despite the weather — and she and Tony agreed to be flexible. We escaped under scaffolding and the El tracks at Lake Street and State Street and photographed away. The available light of the city and reflected light from the rain and puddles lent a special glow to the atmosphere and allowed us to create a beautiful set of portraits. Thanks so much to Erin and Tony for their fearlessness when it came to getting a little wet. We had a great session.

I LOVE them!!! I do not know how we will ever decide which ones to get. There are just so many I really love, I don’t know how I will ever choose. I can’t get over how much I love them. I can’t believe how wonderful the ones in the pool are too! I am already envisioning my wall in the kitchen.
