HI, I AM OKIKI BISHOP, A STORYTELLER!
I never expected to become a filmmaker/photographer but when I look back, everything that's happened has led me here. I picked up my first camera with the motives to document stories ( street photography) around me. This led me to elopement wedding photography where I began my journey as a storyteller and documenting love stories. lovers from different parts of the world came to me as I learn, listen, and shared different love stories and cultures I was exposed to. This has made me travel around the world creating art even though I did not leave New-York City, the world came to me. This got me featured in a New-York times post as I continue my journey. The best part is the people that I get to work with and getting to know couples on a personal level, to the point where they're no longer just clients, but friends.

“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.”
