A photo is worth a thousand words.
I’d love to help capture your story with uniquely beautiful photographs of your own…
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.
Let me tell you about this lady! We planned a Hawaii family reunion in February and wanted to set up a Hawaiian family photo shoot, as a Christmas gift. I had a list of photographers - positives and negatives- and was sorting through. Then Daphne reached out, worked with our budget, took the time to understand what it was we were looking for, and had impeccable communication. Also, payment through venmo was extremely easy. She did a great job of keeping in touch while we were in Hawaii and warned us about an upcoming storm, which was scheduled the same day as our shoot! I was so upset but she did her best and moved around another appointment in order to accommodate us before we left. She was so natural, had our whole family laughing and feeling comfortable. Even my nieces and father in law who don't like pictures enjoyed the shoot! We received the pictures literally a week later! While some photographers only edit a handful of pictures for around the same price, Daphne edits them all! Quick turn around and beautiful pictures! I would def recommend and use her again! Thanks Daphne, we had a great time!
We had a wonderful experience hiring Daphne as our photographer. We were vacationing in Honolulu and wanted to take some couples pictures as well as a baby reveal. She did a beautiful job capturing us. The photos are breathtaking! I would highly recommend Daphne for your shoot, she is prompt, organized, and takes gorgeous photos.
Daphne was a wonderful photographer to work with for our family session. Booking was a breeze and she has many ideas for shoot locations in Oahu. Our visit to Oahu was last month and was bit worried since it's rainy season. Daphne reassured us that forecast in Oahu changes all the time. She was right and our session was free of rain. My daughters felt very comfortable with her and it really showed in the photos. Daphne Hargrove is awesome and very talented.
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!
I searched and contacted several photographers on Oahu to book a newborn photo session. Daphne was the first to respond back and was very flexible. Ultimately I decided to book a session with Daphne due to her openess, availability, and competitive pricing (Also with so many great recs from other moms on Oahu!). Photoshoot itself was very relaxed but super fun! Daphne took so many amazing pictures! She emphasized natural looks and they turned out amazing. So many precious moments captured. She is amazingly talented. Definitely recommend!!!
Daphne did an AMAZING job on my maternity shoot! I reached out after seeing all her great reviews on yelp since my husband and I were going on our babymoom to Hawaii and wanted to take advantage of the scenery. After seeing her portfolio and pricing I decided to book her, she made the process easy and smooth. Daphne chose an beautiful location for our shoot given we were visiting and not familiar with the area. The day of our shoot it was a bit gloomy and it began to rain but we decided to wait it out and once the rain stopped we were able to get some beautiful shots. Daphne was super friendly and really easy to work with, she was fun and it made us feel comfortable. I love that she knows what she's doing and directed us every step of the way to get some really great poses and also some candids. Overall, we had a great experience and definitely recommend her for any of your photography needs!
What an awesome experience! Daphne worked with my wife 1 on 1 for a "boudoir" shoot before we met up to do maternity pictures outside. The whole experience was wonderful, my beautiful wife felt beautiful, relaxed, and had FUN! Daphne made the experience so pleasant. The photos turned out amazing, and we are definitely having her do a photoshoot with the twins when the arrive!!! Much mahalo, Daphne!
Daphne is a brilliant photographer! Daphne brings so much energy to any shoot making you feel amazing not to mention the fact you will have a fabulous time working with her. Accommodating, professional, and a gifted photographer this lady knows all of your best angles and can capture any theme you are looking for. Furthermore, her prices are ideal, her communication is brilliant and you will love all of the photos!
AMAZING PHOTOGRAPHER HANDS DOWN!!!! She took beautiful pictures of our family for my daughters one year birthday. We were visiting Oahu for family vacation and wanted nice family photos. Daphne made it happen!! She is so good with kids !!! If I visit oahu again I would definitely book her again for another Family shoot!! She is so sweet and What I loved best is she is so quick to respond any questions you have and turn around time for sending the pictures was a week which was so fast! Also, an hour photoshoot is plenty of time!! She is upfront about everything and no hidden fees!! This was our first professional family photoshoot and she did a wonderful job!
We booked Daphne to photograph our toddler boy knowing it was going to be a challenging job since he never ever sits still. Daphne had a beautiful location for us, knows exactly how to work with young children, was very accommodating to various requests before, during and after the photo shoot. In less than a week we got 100+ beautiful photos. We're very happy with how everything turned out and we'd definitely call her again in the future.
Thank you, 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!
A joyful, talented, and professional photographer!
"Daphne is an amazing photographer who truly loves what she does and it shows! She will make you feel comfortable and insure you have a great time and love your photos. Daphne was very responsive to ideas and I got my pictures back very quickly. I would highly recommend her for any type of photography you may be interested in---she is very gifted and a joy to work with!"
Captured Beautiful Moments Without Us Even Knowing!
"My favorite part of our photo shoot with Daphne was her ability to capture the candid moments that make a great photo. With three children in tow, it's always difficult to get everyone to smile at the camera at the same time. So, Daphne took advantage of our silly moments when we didnt' even know we were being photographed, and these candid moments were my favorites. If you're looking for a professional, friendly photographer who will photograph the essence of the moment, she's your gal!"
Amazing, Personalized Photography!
"Gorgeous family photographs. Daphne is amazing! Our family photo shoot was fun and easy. She managed to capture the true spirit of my very active 6 year old. There are so many amazing photos to choose from, I don't know how I'll choose one for our Christmas card. She made everything easy from start to finish, from scheduling the shoot to delivering our photos. We will definitely be using her in the future."
Absolutely amazing and talented
"Anyone can take a photo. Daphne captures the moment in an artistic and angelic view. She captures every moment and when you look back it tells a story. She is absolutely amazing and talented. At first I was looking forward to getting our Maternity Photos done but after working with Daphne within 5 minutes we could not be happier with the experience and the results! Not only was she professional and prepared for a list of different shots and ideas, but also she has a true talent of capturing the moment and letting her subject's soul shine through each photo. We were blown away at how beautiful and real we appeared in our photos. We were so impressed with Daphne's skill that we asked her to take our son's first pictures. Thanks to Daphne, we now have a trove of timeless memories that we will be able to share with my child and cherish for a lifetime. Highly recommended!!"
Best photographer I have ever worked with!!
"This is our 5th year getting our family photos done by Daphne, and our kids were the CRAZIEST this year...and the pictures are still beautiful and amazing!! Daphne has the ability to bring out the most captivating smiles and heart stopping serious poses. She is so patient and also knows how to motivate the kids. She can roll with the kids and turn their antics into amazing poses! I am sure to have Daphne do our family photos for years to come!!"
Exceeded Expectations and helped me book jobs!!!
"I was referred by a friend and had not seen any of Daphne's work prior, but needed help in putting together my first series of head shots & style pics for a modeling & talent agency. Daphne was awesome and made me feel at ease and comfortable from the very start. Instinctive and open to my suggestions she worked efficiently and with positive energy. The photos turned out awesomely and were applauded by the Director of the Model Agency. I ended up booking 3 TV commercials in my first year based on these portfolio photos!"
Her amazing photography skills made me a 3 time repeat customer!!
"I have used Daphnes's services multiple times for personal, family, and business. Several years ago, I hired Daphne to do my boudoir photos. I wanted to create a book of sexy images as a Valentines Day gift to my husband. The photo session was so fun. Daphne instantly put me at ease and made me feel comfortable and beautiful! The images she took were truly stunning! So of course, when I wanted to capture moments to remember of my ohana, there was no other choice for photographer. I have 3 kids and my youngest was less than 2 years old and always a moving target. Daphne was so great working with all of them. She moments she caught on camera are magical! Our family photos are beautiful and I am so grateful to have them to look back on. Recently, I used Daphne for a professional photo shoot for my jewelry business. She took stunning product shots for my website! I am beyond impressed at her talent. She put my models at ease and made each photo look so natural. It was such a fun day working with her. She has an amazing eye for capturing beauty and was able to style my jewelry and models to get the perfect shot. I cannot say enough how talented, friendly, and professional this photographer is!!!"
Highly recommended! Very professional, prompt, and talented!
"We booked Daphne for a maternity shoot and she was full of great creative ideas and made us feel extremely comfortable. This was a recipe for a great shoot and photos that we will cherish forever. She has a great eye for composition so we had tons of great proofs to choose from. We were so satisfied that we booked her again for a shoot after our baby was born. And, again, she was incredibly professional but also personable, making the whole experience enjoyable, from shoot to final printed photos. Additionally, she really makes you feel like she appreciates your business. I could not be more satisfied with her services."
Amazing Pictures with Aloha!
"My wife and I were lucky enough to have Daphne capture some of the most important moments of our lives and wish there were five more stars to select. She is fun and easy to work with, is extremely sensitive to the needs of the subjects she shoots (she took the greatest care to be aware of the needs of our newborn daughter during the shoot), is on time for everything (including an incredible turnaround time for delivery of the pictures), and has an artistic style and eye that most photographers spend an entire career trying to perfect. She also has a sense of aloha that far too many photographers on island seem to either not have or leave at home. And did I mention affordability? Hands down the best value we've ever had with a photographer - especially for the high quality product that we now have. She took three sessions for us: 1. Maternity shots just a week before our daughter was born. 2. Newborn pictures of our daughter. 3. Family pictures of us, our daughter and our dog (focusing more on our dog). Note: our dog has since passed and we feel honored that Daphne was able to capture our family together with him. For all three sessions, Daphne was INCREDIBLE and the final product still has us so happy that we often sit down and browse through the memories as if they were yesterday. Our friends and families rave over her work and we will continue to have her capture special occasions for our family as the years go by. Hands down the best in town!"
Modern and Fresh photography for all occasions
"Daphne Hargrove Photography takes moments in time and turns them into magical memories. Professional, stylish, creative and fun!!! No matter what the occasion, big or small Daphne Hargrove gives it everything she's got to bring out the best with every click of her camera. Our family shoot will forever stay in our hearts, thank you Daphne!"
Fun and Fantastic Pictures
"I have to admit that this is my first review; I'm an avid reader of reviews, but don't take the time to actually write a review. However, my photo shoots with Daphne have been so outstanding that I feel compelled to share my experience with others. She's amazing. I was introduced to Daphne through a friend, and was immediately impressed with the creative, expressive, and professional quality of her photos. I've already used her for four different photo shoots in the past 2 years - an early maternity, a late maternity, at the hospital when baby was born, and at home when baby was 5 days old. And trust me; if she can make me look this good right after I've given birth, then she's a true magician. I prefer Daphne over any other photographer I've worked with because she's fun, flexible, respectful, artistic, very professional, and quick - I'm still in awe at how many fantastic pictures she gets in so little time. How does she do it? I had one photo shoot where I was running late, and made it to the beach for a sunset shoot right as the sun was setting. In less than 20 minutes, she shot some incredible photos from all different angles on a packed beach...and yet the photos made it look like we were the only ones there, and we had over a 100 outstanding pictures to choose from. The other thing I like about Daphne is her quick response and turn around with the photos. She's returned all final photos in less than a week. I've had to wait 6 weeks to several months for other photographers. I've always felt comfortable and at ease during the photo shoots because of Daphne's easy-going and enthusiastic nature. It's so much fun doing a photo shoot with her! She has a keen eye for design in structured poses, and yet is also able to capture spontaneous, unplanned moments in a photojournalist style. It's like getting the best of both worlds in a photographer. So, I enthusiastically give Daphne 5 stars. I hope to use her as our family photographer for life!"
Outstanding, Creative Photographer
I'm a Realtor and have worked with many photographers and have seen good photos and REALLY bad photos, and any one who has worked with Daphne knows that she is an outstanding creative photographer who really goes the extra mile! I have done four photo sessions with her so far- one maternity session, one newborn session, one for my business Christmas cards which featured my family and two dogs, and one for boudoir, and each time she made me feel more than comfortable and her shots were AMAZING! She and her work are top notch in my book!
The Very Best!
Daphne is the real deal. We used her for a family shoot and were happy beyond our expectations. She is a very talented photographer who does high quality professional work.
"What a wonderful experience. Contacted Dapane Hargrove photography while on vacation last week when our daughter wanted her senior pictures taken. We called Dapane and she was there the next day. She wss able to capture the beauty of my daughter as well as the island. We received access to the pictures before we left 2 days later. She processed and edited so quickly. Dapane is extremely professional And knows how to get the pictures the way you want. I would highly recommend her and wish her continued success. Thank you very much."
"I wanted to create the perfect Father's Day gift for my husband, so I decided to hire Daphne. I made the right choice! Daphne is not only talented but she was patient with me, she listened to my needs and made me feel extremely comfortable. My husband was thrilled with his boudoir album. I will definitely hire Daphne again for all my photography needs."
"Oh. My. Gosh. Crazy hot! ...were the first thoughts that came to mind when when I saw my boudoir photos. Daphne is an amazing and talented photographer who knows all the right (and most flattering!) angles to shoot as well as the perfect poses. I felt completely confident that she would make me look my best. My friends would describe me as "very picky" but I absolutely LOVED all my photos. The more I look at them the more I love them. This was the first time I've ever had professional photos taken aside from my wedding and I was a little nervous. Daphne's professional yet relaxed manner and enthusiasm for her art made me feel comfortable right away. Book her!"
"Daphne did a boudoir shoot for my 40th birthday as a gift for myself and for my husband's upcoming birthday. At first I was hesitant because as a woman I'm sure you can relate when I say it's never a perfect time to do one of these shoots because there's always more weight to lose, more sit ups for tighter abs, more squats for a better rear etc...I finally said just do it because I'll never be perfect. When I met Daphne, she made me feel comfortable immediately. Sweetest person and kept it light and fun. I've always had ideas on how I would like some of these photos to turn out but always too embarrassed to actually express myself to the photographer. Figured, there's only so much a camera can do to make a person look any better or sexier than they are. I just wanted something sexy and sensual to give my hubby as a birthday gift. Daphne, I think read my mind....she knew exactly what she was doing. When I saw these pictures.....OMG!!! I was in tears! I couldn't believe that was me!!!! I looked the best I've ever seen myself!! She is amazing!!! I'm soooo happy I did it, because it's priceless!! Just do it!!! You'll be so grateful you did. Thank you so much Daphne!! That was a dream photo shoot for me."
"I don't usually like getting my picture taken, but while visiting a friend on O'ahu, she suggested I get some fun and sexy photos taken by Daphne. I couldn't be happier with the results. Daphne was very professional and made me feel like the most beautiful woman on the beach. She knows just the right angles to hide unflattering body parts. She made it possible for me to relax in what would typically be a very uncomfortable situation for me. I am forever grateful that I have these images of myself feeling and looking beautiful in the most beautiful location."
What a great experience!
"Daphne was fantastic to work with. Instead of a compilation of a bunch of fantastic photos, she took the time to help me create a photo album that had special meaning for my fiancé and me. Daphne's professionalism and exuberant personality made me feel at ease during the shoot. From before the shoot to the final proof, she listened to my ideas and was instrumental in making my vision become a reality. I do not consider myself photogenic, yet the photos turned out truly amazing and my fiancé absolutely loves the album. The album and case are of a stylish and durable quality. My fiancé absolutely loved the photos so much that he wants to order other photos from the shoot. In addition, we decided to hire Daphne to do a couples photo shoot in the near future. This was money well spent and I highly recommend Daphne for any of your photography needs."
So much fun!
"I heard about Daphne through 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."
