      Daphne is amazing! She shot our maternity photos in Kakaako and at indoor maternity at her studio, and I am sooo happy with the photos. She really made the experience fun and enjoyable and coached us along the way so I never felt awkward/forced. She has an artistic eye and is able to think of beautiful photos/ideas instantly. Thank you so so much for such a great experience.

      If you're reading this review then consider yourself lucky since you've found your photographer. Daphne's photos are spectacular, yes, but what makes her special is she goes the extra mile for her clients. Specifically, I asked Daphne to help me with a surprise photoshoot for my engagement during a sunrise hike in Lanikai. I'm talking 6-7 am on a Saturday. Daphne was at the top of the hike taking pictures an hour before we got up there and she captured our engagement beautifully once we arrived. She even brought her boyfriend on the hike to help conceal the fact that she was surreptitiously photographing our occasion. She goes above and beyond. Needless to say the photos are amazing and we couldn't be happier. Seriously, stop looking and just go with Daphne.

      I wish I could review Daphne's work itself, but unfortunately I have not been able to do a session with her. I have contacted her 3 times, received responses twice- the first was about 6 weeks after my email (apparently she was on vacation). The second I waited for about 2 weeks before hearing back. The third (I responded immediately after her 2nd response) I am still waiting on (going on another 2 weeks now).  

    My only tip is to try to get a hold of her in some way other than email. It makes me wonder how long the turn around time is to actually GET your photos. I will never know, though. I'll be going with someone more accessible and with better customer service.

  •   I heard about Daphne thought a mutual  friend and I thought " Why Not?' . Daphne was so great! We talk a little bit of what I had in mind and why I wanted to take the pictures. I needed this. I just wanted to feel feminine and alluring and sexy in private setting.  Done.  Daphne talked me through everything and I had the best time!


    Daphne makes you feel so comfortable while she's shooting.  She a the perfect mix of fun and professional. And I am so PLEASED with pictures!! I highly recommend her.

      We love taking professional pictures of our family and especially so now with the addition of our baby girl! When looking for a new photographer for Olivia's newborn pictures, I turned to yelp and found Daphne! she had a 5 star rating and after viewing her portfolio on her website I decided to email her! What I found intially impressive was her immediate response! I'm a planner, I like things organized and I like being able to instantly mark things off my To-Do list and because she was so quick to respond via email I was able to do so. Olivia's newborn session - check

    Most photographers that we have worked with, they have a creative eye but some lack energy and personality. Daphne has it all. She was able to make my husband, 4 year old, newborn and myself feel comfortable and relaxed. She knew exactly what she wanted us to do, how to have us pose to get the best picture and lighting.

    Now the waiting part..... what!?! it took less than a week to get our pictures!!!  I've had to wait 2-4 weeks in other cases!!!! She even offered to deliver the pictures to my house because she was shooting in my area!!!! very sweet and way beyond expected! The pictures are absolutely amazing (aside from being partial because it is my family!) Daphne simply captured what we wanted!!!

    Simply said, Daphne was a absolute professional and a dream to work with! I can't wait to see the pictures she took of my daughters 4th birthday! Yes, thats right, we hired her AGAIN to shoot Chloe's 4th party!!!

    Thanks Daphne, can't wait to book our next session!!

      Daphne is AWESOME and we had an AMAZING time with her on a family beach shoot on our recent trip to Oahu. As a person, she is fun, sweet, friendly, full of positive energy, and gives off such a great vibe. As a photographer, she is incredibly talented, professional, reliable, and an absolute pleasure to work with.

    I emailed Daphne after deciding we liked her work based on her portfolio. She was very quick to respond and great at communication. Her prices are very competitive and fair, and she will go that extra mile to make sure you are completely happy with your photos. We had so much fun during our photo shoot that my family is still talking about how great our photo session was. Her turn around time for delivering our edited photos was very quick, and we were all just blown away by how amazing the photos came out. Truly surpassed our expectations.

    Thank you, Daphne, for such a great experience and capturing such amazing memories of our trip! We look forward to working with you again on our next trip.

      Wow!! I was so lucky to find Daphne on yelp, right off the bat we hit it off. She knew what I wanted and then followed through with the most beautiful photo shoot ever. I have never done this before, so she helped me with my poses, she knew the best angles, the best light, The best backdrop, I am for ever grateful to have met her and to have worked with such a lovely, professional woman. I will recommend her to everyone I know. I can't speak highly enough of her, book her and you will never regret it!!

      We were coming to Oahu for a family vacation.  We wanted to get our family holiday photo done on our trip.  We searched online and viewed at least a 1/2 dozen photographers website portfolios.  Daphne's stood out, her family photos seemed to capture the personality (perceived, of course, since we didn't know any of the people) of her subjects.  My wife reached out via email and she promptly responded.  They spoke via phone and she felt immediately comfortable with Daphne in her phone call.  She was flexible and accommodating In the scheduling (she did a 7:30 AM start time for us!).  We had wanted an outdoor beach shoot with some specific shots at tree grove at the beach.  She had great energy and warmth in her shoot with us.  She made it fun for our kids (and us) and had some unique shoot ideas.  We received the photos about a week later and had a great variety to choose from.  If not for the sunlight being too bright on a few of the shots (hey, it's Hawaii, that's what we came for... the sunshine!), we were really happy.  All-in-all, she was professional, reliable and family-friendly.  If you want a family photo shoot on Oahu, I would highly recommend Daphne.

      A-MA-ZING! I wanted to do a boudoir shoot as a birthday gift for my husband.  I have seen a lot of women do them and for years I've been terrified to actually do it myself.  I never felt like my body was ready and I was afraid of being and looking awkward. I decided if I didn't do it now it was never going to happen. Not only did Daphne guide me on how to pose + have fun with it, she made me feel so comfortable and sexy (in a professional way of course) that I had the best time during the shoot. And when I saw actual pictures I was shocked at how good they came out.  Not because I didn't have faith in the photographer (I've seen her work) but I wasn't expecting myself to look that good. And of course my husband LOVED them.  Totally worth it and I can't recommend Daphne enough.

      I'll keep it brief, b/c the other reviews have already hit upon everything.  Daphne is AMAZING.  Her photography skills are unparalleled.  She shot my maternity pics (with my hubby and 2 year old son) and my son's birthday party.  For my maternity pics, she was able to make me feel beautiful, even though I looked like a torpedo (I swear a stranger at Costco laughed at how large and bullet shaped I was because he couldn't tell I was pregnant from the back).  And, she got my son to cooperate during the pics, who was feeling very grumpy that day.  It's key that she has a son also, so she knows how to work with toddlers.  Her energy and enthusiasm are infectious.

    Now, if I had just met Daphne before I had my 2 sons, then maybe I'd consider the boudoir photoshoot....but not now!  But, if ever there was someone who could convince me that I will still a hot mama and make me feel comfortable doing the shoot, it would be Daphne.
