REVIEWS
  •   Daphne is incredible! I would recommend her for any of your photography needs on Oahu. From the start, she was very kind, our email communication was prompt, and she was very flexible with scheduling.

    Booking a boudoir photo shoot, I was looking for someone professional and classy and Daphne was absolutely both! She made me feel so comfortable and confident shooting on the beach (even with a few other beachgoers hanging around)!  She made all the poses feel natural and fun - never forced or awkward!

    Photo turnaround was just about 1 week and she delivers all photos via a secure online gallery as well as through Dropbox!

    Can't wait to work with her again in the future 🙂

      In A word, Amazing! Daphne has a beautiful personality, a trained eye for photography, and the patience of a Saint. She captures every moment so naturally and perfect. She is officially my go to photographer when we're in Hawaii. With all Boys it's very difficult to get them to take family pictures, but she Daphne made it fun and enjoyable. There truly are no words to express how happy we are with her artistic eye, capturing our family vacation.

      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 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!

      My wife and I decided to finally have some professionally done photos taken and found Daphne through a mutual friend. My wife looked through her photos on Instagram and decided to reach out. We met her at the Halona Blowhole for our photographs. She was incredibly courteous and professional and ensured we were having a good time while she was snapping photos. We just received our preview photos back after a week(incredibly quick) and they look amazing!! Would recommend to any one of my friends looking for a photographer.

      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!!!

      We went to Honolulu for our baby moon. Daphne did the fantastic job with our photo shoot. I'm usually not happy with my pictures and I was thinking to myself even if I get 5 good photos out of 100 She takes I'm happy. But when she sent me the pictures, they are all beautiful, difficult to choose from . Lol.... she is fun, energetic and make you feel good. She knows beautiful hidden places. Don't look any further, go with Daphne. Thank you Daphne for making our baby moon memorable

  •   Daphne is an example of someone who is passionate about what she does and it shows in her photographs!  I was impressed with her commitment to make me feel comfortable with the two shoots we did.  I opted to do both an indoor shoot and an outdoor bikini shoot.  Daphne was so easy to work with and she guided me throughout the shoots.  Needless to say, the photos are beautiful!!! She captured the essence of who I am with her gift of photography and charisma.  I definitely recommend Daphne to anyone who is looking to feel beautiful after an experience in front of the camera.

      I wanted to do something really special for my boyfriend for our first Valentines... And with lots of research, I decided to do some boudoir pics and go with Daphne.  
    I'll tell yah, I have no regrets. So glad I made that decision. Daphne is awesome and amazing! Initially we had problems finding a time that works for both of us, but Daphne is very diligent in responding to my emails quickly. She made me feel comfortable and at ease even before the photo shoot. She explains the different options and her recommendations on what to wear/ bring for the photo shoot.
    I opted to do both indoor and outdoor pics (might as well, why not) and Wow, I had so much fun!  Her Waikiki studio felt like "home"... Quaint and comfy.. I was a bit nervous at first, but Daphne immediately eased my nerves.... She explained the different poses and made me feel so beautiful and sexy.  The beach photo shoot was such a blast too. It was a gorgeous afternoon for a shoot. I again felt a bit nervous with all the people at the beach but Daphne has a way of boosting your confidence and making it a fun, once in a lifetime experience .  
    I was happy and pleased at the final product. My pictures came out amazing. My boyfriend absolutely loved it and still talks about it months later!  I shared some of the pictures with my close friends and my mom.. My friends are now wanting to do a photo shoot too..
    I highly recommend Daphne .. Her fun, bubbly personality, and professionalism made my experience a great memorable one I will always cherish...

      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'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.
