      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!!

      We planned a trip to Honolulu as our babymoon/last trip before our baby arrives so we thought it'd be a great opportunity to do a maternity family photoshoot while we were out there. As someone who Yelps everything, I did alot of research and came across Daphne. From the first email she was extremely responsive,  informative and friendly. After looking at her other work, my husband and I knew we wanted to work with her. It was very easy to schedule a time and date with her as well as paying Daphne. Daphne is flexible and willing to work with what suits you best. Up until we met Daphne, she was always in contact and willing to answer any questions - very professional.  On the day Daphne was extremely friendly and energetic, offering alot of help and guidance on what looked best and how to get the best shots. She was great to work with and willing to do almost anything to capture the perfect shots. We had a lot of fun doing the shoot. Daphne uploaded the photos and allowed us to view them less than 3 days after the shoot and boy were we blown away by the photos! We ended up purchasing all the photos as there simply were too many to choose from. We already know we will do another shoot with Daphne the next time we go back to Honolulu with our baby girl. We highly recommend Daphne,  you won't be disappointed!

  •   I've wanted to do a boudoir photo shoot for a long time. I finally built up the courage, and the photos came out amazing!!  Daphne made me super at ease and made me feel so comfortable in my own skin!  I highly recommend her!

      A-MA-ZING! I wanted to do a boudoir shoot as a birthday gift for my husband.  I have seen a lot of women do them and for years I've been terrified to actually do it myself.  I never felt like my body was ready and I was afraid of being and looking awkward. I decided if I didn't do it now it was never going to happen. Not only did Daphne guide me on how to pose + have fun with it, she made me feel so comfortable and sexy (in a professional way of course) that I had the best time during the shoot. And when I saw actual pictures I was shocked at how good they came out.  Not because I didn't have faith in the photographer (I've seen her work) but I wasn't expecting myself to look that good. And of course my husband LOVED them.  Totally worth it and I can't recommend Daphne enough.

      Bottom line, working with Daphne is amazing! She is professional, personable, and creative. I love the photos she has taken for me and I will without a doubt hire her again in the future!

    I have never been one who enjoys having my picture taken and typically I don't like the photos that I am in. Working with Daphne changed my mind on this. She is so wonderful and easy to work with, I never felt uncomfortable during our photo shoot...in fact at times I even forgot my picture was being taken. Daphne is amazing at making you feel comfortable and relaxed.

    Best of all is that the photos are absolutely amazing. The composition is incredible and I can finally say I LOVE looking at photos with me in them. Daphne is truly talented. I would recommend her to anyone looking to capture special moments in life. The biggest problem you will have is deciding which of the beautiful photos you should frame!

      What an awesome experience!  Daphne worked with my wife 1 on 1 for a "boudoir" shoot before we met up to do maternity pictures outside.  The whole experience was wonderful, my beautiful wife felt beautiful, relaxed, and had FUN!  Daphne made the experience so pleasant.  The photos turned out amazing, and we are definitely having her do a photoshoot with the twins when the arrive!!!  Much mahalo, Daphne!

  •   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.

      We were coming to Oahu for a family vacation.  We wanted to get our family holiday photo done on our trip.  We searched online and viewed at least a 1/2 dozen photographers website portfolios.  Daphne's stood out, her family photos seemed to capture the personality (perceived, of course, since we didn't know any of the people) of her subjects.  My wife reached out via email and she promptly responded.  They spoke via phone and she felt immediately comfortable with Daphne in her phone call.  She was flexible and accommodating In the scheduling (she did a 7:30 AM start time for us!).  We had wanted an outdoor beach shoot with some specific shots at tree grove at the beach.  She had great energy and warmth in her shoot with us.  She made it fun for our kids (and us) and had some unique shoot ideas.  We received the photos about a week later and had a great variety to choose from.  If not for the sunlight being too bright on a few of the shots (hey, it's Hawaii, that's what we came for... the sunshine!), we were really happy.  All-in-all, she was professional, reliable and family-friendly.  If you want a family photo shoot on Oahu, I would highly recommend Daphne.

      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!
