      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!

      I found Daphne from searching "oahu boudior photographer" while on vacation! I am so beyond pleased with how my photos turned out being a "photographer" myself I am very critical of photos especially of myself! I am so so pleased. Daphne made me feel so comfortable from the moment i started talking to her! She got down on the ground and showed me exactly what poses she wanted me to to (extremely flattering poses) she made me feel so great about myself during my session. When i go back i will absolutely book with her again!

      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!

      A fantastic photographer, who knows the best locations and makes all your shyness melt away! I am so happy with my photos! They are so amazing! Selecting a few for an album was so hard because they were all so good. She emailed me clear guidelines ahead of time so I could get ready (e.g., black bikinis, soft attires, makeup/hair style). She was flexible and excited to play with my ideas about outfits. She also went took her own time and went out of her way to check a beach that was recommended to me; then she explained me why other options were better--reasons that I did not see but made complete sense when she explained them. In one hour we changed so many outfits, poses, and settings! Rainbows, islands, palm trees, sand, shore, ocean, surfboard! She took so many photos and results were unbelievable! My best photos ever! Gift yourself with this treat, it will be unforgettable!

      What can I say about Daphne that has not been expressed by all these glowing reviews?  

    I have searched and looked at other portfolios but none spoke to me like Daphne's portfolios.  Don't settle for the photographers at the hotels for convenience sake.   You won't be saving money either.  

    From the start, she was quick to respond to my inquiry for a quote.  It took less than 24 hours.   She was friendly, professional, and personable.   She responded to my inquiries and was accommodating when I had to change my dates and locations.  

    On the day of, my son and I hit it off with Daphne right away.  My son had suggested a new backdrop and she was more than happy to please my 8 year old.  She did not rush us at all and captured a mix of candids and posed photos.  I loved that the pictures really captured my son's goofiness and personality.  

    Do not look any further.  She's truly your Oahu photographer.

  •   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.

      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!

      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!

      Let me tell you about this lady! We planned a Hawaii family reunion in February and wanted to set up a Hawaiian family photo shoot, as a Christmas gift. I had a list of photographers - positives and negatives- and was sorting through. Then Daphne reached out, worked with our budget, took the time to understand what it was we were looking for, and had impeccable communication. Also, payment through venmo was extremely easy. She did a great job of keeping in touch while we were in Hawaii and warned us about an upcoming storm, which was scheduled the same day as our shoot! I was so upset but she did her best and moved around another appointment in order to accommodate us before we left. She was so natural, had our whole family laughing and feeling comfortable. Even my nieces and father in law who don't like pictures enjoyed the shoot! We received the pictures literally a week later! While some photographers only edit a handful of pictures for around the same price, Daphne edits them all! Quick turn around and beautiful pictures! I would def recommend and use her again! Thanks Daphne, we had a great time!
