  •   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.

      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!

      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 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 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 family and I recently went on an amazing trip to Oahu. While planning our trip, I decided on having some family photos taken. I did my research and found Daphne. I was nervous when making the arrangements since we had never been to the island and wasn't sure where we should go to have the photos taken. Daphne gave me some wonderful options and worked with me to help find our perfect spot. She was very professional. She was able to give us the photos we desired and was open to our suggestions as well. We received our photos quickly and fell in love with them. Daphne also gave us a few tips on great spots to visit while on the island.

      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.

      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!!

      Daphne was so easy to coordinate with ahead of time. We really loved meeting her at the shoot, and her easy-going personality made it very relaxing and enjoyable for everyone in our family! She turned the photos around super quickly, which was really amazing. The photos were great - everyone was very happy with how they turned out. I would recommend Daphne in a heartbeat!
