  •   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!

      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.

      Absolutley the BEST photographer on Oahu

    Daphne has such an incredible personality that makes her so wonderful and easy to work with. Perfect. Creative. Lovely. Fun and everything in between! I couldn't be happier with the photos she took and I know my husband is going to LOVE his christmas present. I will never be able to doubt my looks again Thanks to her. And I will never go to another photographer for as long as we live on Oahu!

      Our family and just did a shoot with Daphne in Hawaii.  8 adults and 4 kids.  We are 100% completely satisfied with every part of this process.  Easy communication before we arrived.  Clear instructions and help in planning.  Accommodating to some unique challenges we had.  Daphne picked the perfect resort to us to get the best shots.  When we finally met up with Daphne in person we couldn't of been more impressed with her.  She was great with our 4 little kids, she took requests from us but also gave us great instruction.  She took group shots, family shots, candid shots.  She did it all.  From start to finish, she was a joy to be around and work with!  Great person!  

    To top it off, she got us our pictures (and there were a lot), edited and ready to go very quickly.  We were blown away by the shots Daphne captured.  Memories we will have forever.

    Overall i would recommend Daphne to anyone.  She's the best!  THANKS DAPHNE!

      I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Daphne made me feel so comfortable right away when I arrived for my boudoir photoshoot. She is amazingly talented at what she does. Daphne is enthusiastic, encouraging, and makes it so much fun. She knew exactly how to pose me and was so patient and worked with me till we got it right. The end results were just stunning, my future husband is going to lose his mind! If you have any reservations about taking boudoir photos, just stop right there and pick Daphne!!!

      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.

  •   Contacted Daphne via her website for a photo session for my two kids and all within 2 weeks, we booked, did the photoshoot and had a link to ALL our photos (over 200 shots) edited! I couldn't believe it! So professional and easy to communicate with! And to top it all off, and most importantly, her photos were AMAZING!  

    Daphne responded to my inquiry within 24 hours and was always quick to respond to my subsequent emails regarding questions and pricing. Her pricing is very straightforward and there are no hidden fees like other photographers who charge extra for the proofs or have a limited amount of photos you can have. The package we chose was all inclusive of the session fee and ALL the photos she took, including her editing time! We were limited to an hour but if it takes more than an hour, it's just an added fee (which she is upfront about) for the extra time. It was VERY reasonable compared to other photographers.

    In our one hour session, we did an outdoor location, with 3 outfit changes for both my kids, and she took pictures of them individually and together and a few of our family at the end. Daphne has so much energy and she kept up with my two kids and did some really fun poses with them! She was perfectly directive but was also open to my kids' ideas for taking photos while jumping, doing cartwheels, handstands, and ballet moves! Daphne herself is a highly skilled ballerina so she could really relate to my kids and all their crazy ideas for poses! She also has a young son which explains her high energy and her amazing ability to make kids feel comfortable. My kids had SO MUCH FUN doing the photoshoot!

    When we got the link to the photos, (about a week after the photoshoot) they surpassed my expectations! I couldn't believe how many great shots she got!  It only were the composition of the photos great, the thing I loved most is that she really captured my kids' personalities :). I could tell by the photos that as the session progressed, the more and more my kids looked natural, happy and their inner beauty and energy really started to show! That's all thanks to Daphne who drew that out of them!

    I can't say enough wonderful things about Daphne. I have a few friends who also absolutely love her and have her take their family photos year after year. If you are looking for a high quality, professional and very reasonable photographer, look no further!

      Daphne was amazing to work with.  She was very accommodating with what kind of shoot we wanted.  She was easy to work with and very personable.  Her shots were professionally done and her prices were very reasonable.  She was able to capture images of my wife in her maternity shoot that we will cherish forever!  Her turnaround time was surprisingly fast as well - all of our photos were available just one week after the shoot!  I highly recommend Daphne Hargrove as a photographer.  Thank you Daphne!

      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.
