Daphne Hargrove Photography | A photograph is an instant of truth. It’s a bit of magic really- capturing the little things, forever, so that you can always return to the special feeling of that moment. I hope you enjoy the photos on the following pages as much as I have enjoyed being privy to those moments...

A photo is worth a thousand words.

I’d love to help capture your story with uniquely beautiful photographs of your own…

  •   We were coming to Oahu for a family vacation.  We wanted to get our family holiday photo done on our trip.  We searched online and viewed at least a 1/2 dozen photographers website portfolios.  Daphne's stood out, her family photos seemed to capture the personality (perceived, of course, since we didn't know any of the people) of her subjects.  My wife reached out via email and she promptly responded.  They spoke via phone and she felt immediately comfortable with Daphne in her phone call.  She was flexible and accommodating In the scheduling (she did a 7:30 AM start time for us!).  We had wanted an outdoor beach shoot with some specific shots at tree grove at the beach.  She had great energy and warmth in her shoot with us.  She made it fun for our kids (and us) and had some unique shoot ideas.  We received the photos about a week later and had a great variety to choose from.  If not for the sunlight being too bright on a few of the shots (hey, it's Hawaii, that's what we came for... the sunshine!), we were really happy.  All-in-all, she was professional, reliable and family-friendly.  If you want a family photo shoot on Oahu, I would highly recommend Daphne.

      Review after Maternity photoshoot session : Daphne is amazing! I contacted her a month prior to coming to Oahu for a babymoon. From the first email she was prompt to respond, professional, and engaging which put me at ease. She understood my vision and was game to try a shoot in Haleiwa which is not one of her usual locations. She's easy going and makes you feel comfortable in front of a camera while strangers look on. She was great at making my boyfriend laugh for hopefully some good shots.  She has a great eye for perfect locations and I'm so excited to see what she has created! I'll definitely be contacting her for a family session once baby girl makes her appearance. I may also need to book a boudoir session after I loose the baby weight.

  •   Daphne is amazing! She shot our maternity photos in Kakaako and at indoor maternity at her studio, and I am sooo happy with the photos. She really made the experience fun and enjoyable and coached us along the way so I never felt awkward/forced. She has an artistic eye and is able to think of beautiful photos/ideas instantly. Thank you so so much for such a great experience.

      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!

      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.

      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!!

  •   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 great to work with!  Very pleasant, had great ideas, and our pics turned out awesome - even with a crazy toddler!

      We booked Daphne to photograph our toddler boy knowing it was going to be a challenging job since he never ever sits still. Daphne had a beautiful location for us, knows exactly how to work with young children, was very accommodating to various requests before, during and after the photo shoot. In less than a week we got 100+ beautiful photos. We're very happy with how everything turned out and we'd definitely call her again in the future.
    Thank you, Daphne!

      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!
