Vintage Works

The past is catching up to me, and I like it. Sometimes our past lives drift, become vivid memories - but with Hillary Clinton and Mike Huckabee running for president, mine is resurfacing. Enjoy a look back with me during the months as I post photos over 10 years old. And enjoy looking forward with me, as I post work I do in the next months as these two make a go of it.

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 Photography – we are happy to assure you your day will be documented to our highest standards.
