      I was eight months pregnant and completely on the fence about doing a maternity shoot. Many had told me I'd regret it if I didn't, and when Daphne made herself available for shoots over the holidays while traveling to the city I live I knew it would be the perfect opportunity to just go for it. I had worked with Daphne as a ballerina more than a decade ago, and I knew that her open, creative, and supportive mentality would be what I needed to feel comfortable. Beforehand I sent her handfuls of images from other maternity shoots that I'd seen and loved -- I knew I wanted something a little different and more casual than what I was used to seeing. She was so receptive and also gave me great direction throughout. The photos turned out relaxed and beautiful and what was unexpected was how her keen eye not only captured this special time for my husband and I but other meaningful pieces of our lives as well -- Our dogs, our home, a special Christmas tree ornament, etc. All so special. I now know what people meant when they said I would have regretted not doing this!

      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!

  •   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.

      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!

      For my 100th Yelp review, there is no other business I'd rather give 5 stars to than Daphne Hargrove Photography.

    I was introduced to Daphne nearly a year ago. She was referred to me by a friend who had just hired her to shoot engagement photos - my friend and his fiancee were absolutely thrilled with the pictures she took, so I gave her a call and the rest is history...

    Daphne is an artist, through and through. A former dancer with the New York City Ballet, Daphne looks at the world in a completely different way than most people...and the result of this unique perspective comes through beautifully in her photography. She captures intimate moments with such incredible precision and authenticity. Take a look through the client galleries on her website -- you'll see what I mean. Daphne takes engagement photos, pregnancy/new baby photos, and, her specialty...boudoir photos!

    The best part about working with Daphne is her personality. I hate having a camera pointed in my direction, but Daphne immediately put me at ease. So much so, that I almost forgot there was a camera in the room at all! The shoot went by so quickly because we were having SO much fun...she is an absolute dream! Oh, and don't worry about what side is your "best side" because Daphne is a MASTER of shooting the most flattering angles. When I saw the proofs of my shoot, I could hardly believe I was looking at myself! Daphne made me look pretty darn amazing, if I do say so...

    Daphne's prices are very competitive, especially when you consider how much effort she puts into retouching the photos after the shoot. She'll also create customized photo books, cards and calendars with your photos.

    Seriously, give her a call to discuss your project...you will absolutely LOVE her and her work!

  •   I was looking on Yelp for a photographer to take some family vacation pics and 40th bday  pics less than a week before I left for vacation to Honolulu and found Daphne. I could tell right away from her portfolio that she is incredibly talented and she did not disappoint. She was incredibly fast to respond, genuinely friendly and the ultimate professional. She was on time to the shoot, she's very experienced in her work and is great at giving direction on how to pose, where to stand, etc. without being overbearing. She gets all kinds of great angles - laying on the ground, standing above you, or far behind you to get the perfect shot. She made the shoot fun to the point where this photo shoot was one of the highlights of my vacation. In addition to a great experience at the shoot itself, she delivered the pictures earlier than I expected them, which was a nice surprise. The photos are AMAZING - print worthy, social media worthy, and hang-up-on-your-wall worthy. I would definitely recommend Daphne if you happen to be in Oahu for any occasion where you need a photographer. I would work with her again in a heartbeat. Thanks, Daphne!

      Daphne is absolutely incredible! She was so flexible with scheduling...I probably rescheduled 8 times over the last year and she was patient enough to help me. The idea of doing boudoir photos made me a little nervous, but she made the day soooo much fun! She is great at guiding you in how to pose, where to look, etc., while making you feel completely at ease. And when I saw the pictures, I couldn't believe it. As women we tend to be critical of ourselves and how we look, but wow....Daphne made even my overly critical self feel good 🙂 The end result was insane, and I am so impressed.

    Thank you Daphne for a very memorable day and for making me feel beautiful. I am amazed at how talented you are, and can tell that you love what you do. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!!!!! Can't wait to do another shoot with you! 🙂

      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!

      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.
