Our approach is simple: We document your day. We are there for you, and we do what we can to help your celebration go smoothly—all the while capturing spontaneous, natural moments among family and friends as the day unfolds.

We reach beyond photojournalism to tell your wedding story in fine art images, each infused with the unique atmosphere, emotion and personality of your event. We consider it an honor to be part of your most celebrated day, and urge you to simply wrap yourself in the moment—only later will you realize your most beautiful memories have been preserved in photographs.

Chris and his assistant Mona were beyond amazing! Words cannot even begin to describe how well they handled our family! Everyone thought they were long time friends with us as how easily they interacted with everyone and how comfortable the made everyone feel. Chris and Mona did an AMAZING job of managing our crazy family (both my husband's family and my family consists of divorced and remarried parents (some of whom do not get along the best). He did a great job getting all our photos done so we could enjoy some time together even after pictures before the reception started. We are so happy to have found Chris. We intend to use his services as we grow our family to document our lives together through images!

Bob was an amazing photographer. He took amazing pictures..so many that I'm still having trouble deciding which ones to put on my walls. I am not a big fan of the "cheesy" photos, which is one of the reasons I love Bob. He did such a amazing job on engagement and bridal portraits and family photos and pics throughout my wedding night...but what he also manages to catch are the intimate, real moments. He has a knack for taking beautiful photos when you don't realize...and many of these shots are my favorites.
Bob was so easy and fun to work with.....highly recommend using him!!!

We requested simple straight forward photography to document the day. We weren't into angled shots or pictures of my shoes and the like that are so popular. Bob and his assistant did a great job of listening, getting the pictures we wanted, and taking a few of those other trendy photos that we thought we didn't want. Turns out I am very glad he took those pictures as well, many of them ended up in our wedding album.

Bob is an incredibly talented photographer who produced a beautiful set of images, giving us exactly what we wanted and more. He is extremely creative, professional, dependable, and an overall pleasure to be around. As soon as our initial meeting began, I knew Bob was a perfect fit. He was clear and efficient, guided us throughout the entire process, and the end result was better than I could have imagined. Thank you Bob!

Chris is fun, personable, creative, professional and awesome at what he does. He was more knowledgable than our wedding planner at informing us of what to expect and providing direction in regards to the big day and how it would flow. No fake smiles when working with Chris. It was so fun looking at our pictures for the first time. He captured moments that we will remember forever, and was never "in your face". We are very happy with Ocken Photography.

I am so happy that Chris Ocken was a part of our special day. He is such a great guy and knows how to handle pushy wedding families. He put me at ease with his sense of humor and knowing Chris was behind the camera meant that was one less thing I had to worry about. He worked seamlessly with our coordinator allowing all of our special moments to be captured perfectly. He was perfect!!!
