HI, I AM OKIKI BISHOP, A VISUAL STORYTELLER!
Losing my mom made me realize the importance of capturing moments in photos and films. I couldn't grieve for my mom as I would have loved to; there were no videos of her - of us, just to have a piece of her in motion or hear her voice - nothing to hold on to for nostalgia's sake.
I picked up my first camera with the motive to document my personal experiences and stories around me. This led me to street photography, then elopement wedding photography where I began my journey as a storyteller, documenting love stories. Meeting lovers from different parts of the world, learning different cultures, capturing raw emotions and culture, built a passion for capturing remarkable moments and creating timeless stories I never knew existed in me.
My story-driven approach to videography got me featured in a New-York Times Post in 2017.
The best part of this journey is having my clients become not just another story to tell, but becoming friends with me.

“Bishop was so great to work with! We met him at a friend's wedding at the city clerk's office where he was taking photos and he did such a good job. We immediately booked him for ours! He picked out very fun locations around the clerk's office and had very creative ideas for the photos.”
