      Daphne is fantastic! I felt comfortable and sexy and had a great time! Was nervous because it was my first boudoir shoot, but she was great! Results were perfect and exactly what I wanted. She communicated to work with my schedule! I'd recommend to anyone for any kind of photos!

      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 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!

  •   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!

      Daphne is AWESOME! I did a maternity boudoir and outdoor photoshoot with her last week and was feeling self conscious about my body since I recently had a skin outbreak and I also felt huge. I definitely didn't feel sexy but Daphne made all my worries disappear as soon as I met her. She made me feel so comfortable, sexy, and I had so much fun doing the photoshoot. I received a link for my gallery with all my photos (all edited) within FOUR days of the photoshoot (this was over 100 photos!). I LOVED how my pictures turned out and would highly recommend her. She's so easy to work with and is very talented. Thanks Daphne!!!

      Daphne was amazing to work with during our surprise proposal! She is very professional and fun, which made our shoot so easy! We received our pictures quickly and were SO happy with how they turned out!! We highly recommend working with Daphne 🙂

      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.

  •   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!

      Where do I begin? Daphne was a joy to work with from start to finish. I wanted to do something special for my husband and had a few friends do boudoir photos and figured it was a great surprise idea. I looked online and yelp and found a few photographers but I liked her style the best.

    Initial contact was through a phone call at around 7pm (I figured I'd leave a message) but I was instead met with a cheerful conversation with Daphne. Within 10 minutes I had an email detailing her options and pricing! This made this experience more easy for me. We were able to book for two weeks from the day.

    Each time we spoke her responses were professional and prompt. She provided recommendations for hair and makeup and listed contact information and directions for all of them. Which basically meant I didn't have much work to do on my own.

    The shoot was so fun and actually carefree, she was so bubbly and nice that my nervousness went away and I was able to relax. She estimated a week but was able to finish them 3 days later. The photos turned out amazing just as she said they would!

      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!

      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!
