      Daphne was very personable when we had our family photo shoot while on vacation in Oahu.  We all had so much fun interacting with her.

    And she gives the best customer service after the fact.  She willingly shared are entire portfolio with us an did not demand that we purchase our copies from her.  I will gladly display her photography skills in my home for years to come.

      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.

  •   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!

      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!

      I was eight months pregnant and completely on the fence about doing a maternity shoot. Many had told me I'd regret it if I didn't, and when Daphne made herself available for shoots over the holidays while traveling to the city I live I knew it would be the perfect opportunity to just go for it. I had worked with Daphne as a ballerina more than a decade ago, and I knew that her open, creative, and supportive mentality would be what I needed to feel comfortable. Beforehand I sent her handfuls of images from other maternity shoots that I'd seen and loved -- I knew I wanted something a little different and more casual than what I was used to seeing. She was so receptive and also gave me great direction throughout. The photos turned out relaxed and beautiful and what was unexpected was how her keen eye not only captured this special time for my husband and I but other meaningful pieces of our lives as well -- Our dogs, our home, a special Christmas tree ornament, etc. All so special. I now know what people meant when they said I would have regretted not doing this!

  •   Daphne photographed the birth of our second child born on Nov 7, 2016. Maverick came at 3:22 am. I had contacted Daphne months before, before I had picked an OB or even knew which hospital I would deliver at I knew I wanted Daphne. It was incredibly special to have such intimate pictures. Despite poor lighting and a small crowded room they were perfect and the turn around time was fast. Every time I see them I cry. Thank you for capturing one of the most important moments of our lives.

      I was looking on Yelp for a photographer to take some family vacation pics and 40th bday  pics less than a week before I left for vacation to Honolulu and found Daphne. I could tell right away from her portfolio that she is incredibly talented and she did not disappoint. She was incredibly fast to respond, genuinely friendly and the ultimate professional. She was on time to the shoot, she's very experienced in her work and is great at giving direction on how to pose, where to stand, etc. without being overbearing. She gets all kinds of great angles - laying on the ground, standing above you, or far behind you to get the perfect shot. She made the shoot fun to the point where this photo shoot was one of the highlights of my vacation. In addition to a great experience at the shoot itself, she delivered the pictures earlier than I expected them, which was a nice surprise. The photos are AMAZING - print worthy, social media worthy, and hang-up-on-your-wall worthy. I would definitely recommend Daphne if you happen to be in Oahu for any occasion where you need a photographer. I would work with her again in a heartbeat. Thanks, Daphne!

      This is our 5th year getting our family photos done by Daphne, and our kids were the CRAZIEST this year...and the pictures are still beautiful and amazing!! Daphne has the ability to bring out the most captivating smiles and heart stopping serious poses. She is so patient and also knows how to motivate the kids. She can roll with the kids and turn their antics into amazing poses! I am sure to have Daphne do our family photos for year to come!!
