REVIEWS
  •   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.

      If you're reading this review then consider yourself lucky since you've found your photographer. Daphne's photos are spectacular, yes, but what makes her special is she goes the extra mile for her clients. Specifically, I asked Daphne to help me with a surprise photoshoot for my engagement during a sunrise hike in Lanikai. I'm talking 6-7 am on a Saturday. Daphne was at the top of the hike taking pictures an hour before we got up there and she captured our engagement beautifully once we arrived. She even brought her boyfriend on the hike to help conceal the fact that she was surreptitiously photographing our occasion. She goes above and beyond. Needless to say the photos are amazing and we couldn't be happier. Seriously, stop looking and just go with Daphne.

      My wife and I hired Daphne to do our engagement photos on Kailua Beach and we were blown away by how incredible the shots were. We sent them out to all our family and friends and people loved them so much, many of them asked us for Daphne's info. We even used a few of the shots in our wedding invitation, thank you notes, and a book... and again, everyone told us they truly loved the pictures.

    Simply talking about the quality of Daphne's photos doesn't even begin to explain why you will love working with her. She is one of the nicest, most caring people you'll ever meet, and your happiness *genuinely* matters to her. When she smiles (and she's always smiling), you'll smile... and your photos will be amazing as a result. She'll help you and your family feel at ease and you'll see that she will do everything she can to make sure you are thrilled with the results.

    As a photographer myself, I can tell you that Daphne is a true artist both with the camera and in post-production. She spends a lot of time fine-touching your photographs to make them unique, beautiful, and perfect for framing. Many professional photographers simply add a couple pre-canned filters... but not Daphne. She goes through everything by hand and you can tell with the results that she is really driven her immense creativity and passion for photography.

    I guarantee that you will be thrilled that you hired Daphne to capture your special moments, portfolio, family portraits, etc. After you work with her, you'll be writing a 5-star review just like me... I promise.

  •   What can I say about Daphne that everyone hasn't hit already. She is absolutely spectacular! I was extremely nervous when doing the boudoir shoot because I completely stepped out of my comfort zone. I have aways been into the whole modeling thing but when it came to that type, I was nervous! Daphne made me feel like a million bucks and better yet we had soooo much fun doing it. I had a huge time crunch as well, because I decided to do this as an anniversary gift last minute. She got me in ASAP and edited my photos quickly so I had something to show the man. I couldn't believe how good she is at photography. She is now my families photographer!

      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.

      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.

  •   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...

She was early to the appt, easy going, very attentive. Her passion and dedication to her work is evident. It shows in the beautiful pictures she captured of my family. She captured the essence of our family and I'm grateful. 100% recommend.

      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!

      Daphne did an amazing job photographing my daughter and her best friend while they were on a high school graduation celebration trip.  The photos are beautiful, she did a great job taking pictures of them individually as well as together and a variety of poses.  The girls also had a great time and enjoyed the shoot location as a bonus 😉

    They were on this trip alone and I communicated with Daphne via email and text and her communication was excellent, which helped me feel good about them meeting with her alone and she even drove them back to their hotel after the photo shoot!  She took a great deal of time going over details of the shoot and my requests which I appreciated as it's hard selecting a photographer remotely and last minute!

    I would highly recommend Daphne for any of your photography needs without hesitation!
