REVIEWS
  •   Thank you Daphne for the amazing experience of doing a boudoir shoot. Needless to say, for the average human is a bit nerve racking to expose yourself but Daphne made the experience fun and completely memorable. A boudoir shoot has always been on my bucket list and so I started my research on finding the best boudoir photographer on Oahu, Daphne Hargrove. I reached out to Daphne and within a few hours I received a response. Yay!!
    Daphne even suggested a friend to do my hair and makeup which was a huge relief since I had no idea who to go to for hair and makeup. The day of the shoot, I was a bit nervous but Daphne really put me at ease and it was a blast. We did an indoor and beach shoot and both settings were beautiful. Her indoor studio was clean and spacious and the outdoor shoot was breathtaking.
    The most difficult part of the whole process was narrowing down photos to my favorite to compile into a book. The turn around time from actual shoot to receiving the completed book was much quicker than I expected. I initially told Daphne I needed the book before the first weekend in December as I would be traveling for 2 weeks and I received the book the week before Thanksgiving. Let me break it down, boudoir shoot the beginning of November and final product within 3 weeks!!
    Ladies, I highly recommend stepping out of your comfort zone and doing something that celebrates who you are as a woman. Thanks to Daphne, this was such a liberating and memorable  experience.

      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!!

      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 year to come!!

      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

  •   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!

      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!

      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!

      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.

      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...
