  •   Daphne was absolutely AMAZING! I wish I could rate higher than just 5 stars. I was pretty nervous leading up to the shoot I did, but once I met Daphne and we were going up the elevator to her studio, any nervousness I felt washed away. She immediately made me feel sooo comfortable, which I feel is so important. There wasn't a single moment where I felt embarrassed or worried about my body - she made me feel confident throughout. I would totally do a shoot with her again.

    If you're looking for an awesome photographer, stop where you are and go with Daphne!

      Absolutley the BEST photographer on Oahu

    Daphne has such an incredible personality that makes her so wonderful and easy to work with. Perfect. Creative. Lovely. Fun and everything in between! I couldn't be happier with the photos she took and I know my husband is going to LOVE his christmas present. I will never be able to doubt my looks again Thanks to her. And I will never go to another photographer for as long as we live on Oahu!

      Where do I begin? Daphne was a joy to work with from start to finish. I wanted to do something special for my husband and had a few friends do boudoir photos and figured it was a great surprise idea. I looked online and yelp and found a few photographers but I liked her style the best.

    Initial contact was through a phone call at around 7pm (I figured I'd leave a message) but I was instead met with a cheerful conversation with Daphne. Within 10 minutes I had an email detailing her options and pricing! This made this experience more easy for me. We were able to book for two weeks from the day.

    Each time we spoke her responses were professional and prompt. She provided recommendations for hair and makeup and listed contact information and directions for all of them. Which basically meant I didn't have much work to do on my own.

    The shoot was so fun and actually carefree, she was so bubbly and nice that my nervousness went away and I was able to relax. She estimated a week but was able to finish them 3 days later. The photos turned out amazing just as she said they would!

      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.

      My family came out to visit Hawaii for Thanksgiving break and we had Daphne come and take our photos on the beach on North Shore. She was amazing with my 4 year old brother, and got some amazing shots of the whole family. Her style is very bright and fresh and I absolutely love the way they turned out. She was very skilled at giving us directions, and got plenty of natural looking and candid shots. I highly recommended her!

  •   Absolutely incredible! Daphne brought my vision to life and SO MUCH MORE! I've been fighting to reclaim my sensuality after breast cancer treatment, which took my breasts and hair. The vision was "topless goddess" in a lush Hawaiian landscape. Daphne understood completely and found the most ideal, breathtaking location! She made me (and my friends) feel like the most beautiful creatures alive. Everything about the experience was magical and transformative - and that's before I even received the pictures! They are stunning. I've used them to own my worth and my beauty, and to inspire other breast cancer survivors on their journey. Daphne is more than a photographer, she is divine 🙂 I feel so blessed to have found her (here on Yelp), and will definitely be working with her again. Women - do this for yourself! You're worth it!

      My husband and I wanted photographs of our 3 month old baby after she had learned to smile and after reading reviews of Daphne, we decided to go with her.  We could not be happier with how the photos turned out!  Daphne did an extraordinary job in capturing precious moments with our baby and our family and turned each photo into a stunning work of art.  We are so happy that she was able to capture so many precious moments that we will treasure for a lifetime.

      We planned a trip to Honolulu as our babymoon/last trip before our baby arrives so we thought it'd be a great opportunity to do a maternity family photoshoot while we were out there. As someone who Yelps everything, I did alot of research and came across Daphne. From the first email she was extremely responsive,  informative and friendly. After looking at her other work, my husband and I knew we wanted to work with her. It was very easy to schedule a time and date with her as well as paying Daphne. Daphne is flexible and willing to work with what suits you best. Up until we met Daphne, she was always in contact and willing to answer any questions - very professional.  On the day Daphne was extremely friendly and energetic, offering alot of help and guidance on what looked best and how to get the best shots. She was great to work with and willing to do almost anything to capture the perfect shots. We had a lot of fun doing the shoot. Daphne uploaded the photos and allowed us to view them less than 3 days after the shoot and boy were we blown away by the photos! We ended up purchasing all the photos as there simply were too many to choose from. We already know we will do another shoot with Daphne the next time we go back to Honolulu with our baby girl. We highly recommend Daphne,  you won't be disappointed!

      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.
