REVIEWS
  •   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.

      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!!

      Our family and just did a shoot with Daphne in Hawaii.  8 adults and 4 kids.  We are 100% completely satisfied with every part of this process.  Easy communication before we arrived.  Clear instructions and help in planning.  Accommodating to some unique challenges we had.  Daphne picked the perfect resort to us to get the best shots.  When we finally met up with Daphne in person we couldn't of been more impressed with her.  She was great with our 4 little kids, she took requests from us but also gave us great instruction.  She took group shots, family shots, candid shots.  She did it all.  From start to finish, she was a joy to be around and work with!  Great person!  

    To top it off, she got us our pictures (and there were a lot), edited and ready to go very quickly.  We were blown away by the shots Daphne captured.  Memories we will have forever.

    Overall i would recommend Daphne to anyone.  She's the best!  THANKS DAPHNE!

      This review is in regards to a family photo shoot shot on 8/18.

    Daphne is an absolute doll to work with. I was looking for something special when I booked my vacation to Hawaii so I surprised my wife with a family photo shoot. I had researched for a photographer on yelp that could accommodate a photo shoot with my 2 year old son and she delivered. Her response time is quick. From the day I got a quote to even a week after the shoot she always replied promptly to my messages.

    About the shoot:

    We had agreed on Kahala as the location for our shoot. She had recommended and with her years of experience I obliged. The day went off without a hitch and my toddler absolutely loved her. Daphne was able to get him to smile through out the entirety of the shoot. The session seemed to breeze through and we even had an outfit change for our son. It was very lively and there was no dull moments.

    About the pictures:

    Daphne hosts the pictures online but you can get a package with the physical copies. My family absolutely loved the quality of the images. We took about 200 photos so we had a lot to choose from.

    Overall:

    Daphne is for sure a 5 star professional photographer in the Honolulu area. I would definitely recommend her to my friends and use her services again next time I'm in the area.

  •   Daphne was excellent to work with for our maternity photos.  The location she suggested was gorgeous, her personality warm and her photos are stunning.  In addition, she was able to deliver our photos to us within the week!  This was wonderful of her especially since I waited until I was 38 weeks along to do my photos.  I'd highly recommend her to anyone looking to have maternity photos done.

      Daphne is fantastic! I felt comfortable and sexy and had a great time! Was nervous because it was my first boudoir shoot, but she was great! Results were perfect and exactly what I wanted. She communicated to work with my schedule! I'd recommend to anyone for any kind of photos!

      Daphne is AWESOME! I did a maternity boudoir and outdoor photoshoot with her last week and was feeling self conscious about my body since I recently had a skin outbreak and I also felt huge. I definitely didn't feel sexy but Daphne made all my worries disappear as soon as I met her. She made me feel so comfortable, sexy, and I had so much fun doing the photoshoot. I received a link for my gallery with all my photos (all edited) within FOUR days of the photoshoot (this was over 100 photos!). I LOVED how my pictures turned out and would highly recommend her. She's so easy to work with and is very talented. Thanks Daphne!!!

      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.

      My girlfriend and I were vacationing in Oahu earlier this month and I wanted to capture a very special moment on film and needed a photographer.  Enter Daphne Hargrove.  Daphne exceeded my expectations.  She was very personable and accommodating and even went out of her way to help me pick the perfect location to "get down on one knee."  Her photos were flawless.  Thank you Daphne greatly for helping us out and capturing that very special moment with me and my newly engaged fiancée and making it picture perfect!

      My wife and I hired Daphne to do our engagement photos on Kailua Beach and we were blown away by how incredible the shots were. We sent them out to all our family and friends and people loved them so much, many of them asked us for Daphne's info. We even used a few of the shots in our wedding invitation, thank you notes, and a book... and again, everyone told us they truly loved the pictures.

    Simply talking about the quality of Daphne's photos doesn't even begin to explain why you will love working with her. She is one of the nicest, most caring people you'll ever meet, and your happiness *genuinely* matters to her. When she smiles (and she's always smiling), you'll smile... and your photos will be amazing as a result. She'll help you and your family feel at ease and you'll see that she will do everything she can to make sure you are thrilled with the results.

    As a photographer myself, I can tell you that Daphne is a true artist both with the camera and in post-production. She spends a lot of time fine-touching your photographs to make them unique, beautiful, and perfect for framing. Many professional photographers simply add a couple pre-canned filters... but not Daphne. She goes through everything by hand and you can tell with the results that she is really driven her immense creativity and passion for photography.

    I guarantee that you will be thrilled that you hired Daphne to capture your special moments, portfolio, family portraits, etc. After you work with her, you'll be writing a 5-star review just like me... I promise.
