REVIEWS
  •   Bottom line, working with Daphne is amazing! She is professional, personable, and creative. I love the photos she has taken for me and I will without a doubt hire her again in the future!

    I have never been one who enjoys having my picture taken and typically I don't like the photos that I am in. Working with Daphne changed my mind on this. She is so wonderful and easy to work with, I never felt uncomfortable during our photo shoot...in fact at times I even forgot my picture was being taken. Daphne is amazing at making you feel comfortable and relaxed.

    Best of all is that the photos are absolutely amazing. The composition is incredible and I can finally say I LOVE looking at photos with me in them. Daphne is truly talented. I would recommend her to anyone looking to capture special moments in life. The biggest problem you will have is deciding which of the beautiful photos you should frame!

      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!

She deliver the most gorgeous pictures I could ever imagine. Read my mind 100%!! When looking at the pictures I felt like I was looking at a magazine ad for vacationing. The scenery was simply gorgeous!! Thank you Daphne for capturing these AMAZING PICTURES!!

      I'll keep it brief, b/c the other reviews have already hit upon everything.  Daphne is AMAZING.  Her photography skills are unparalleled.  She shot my maternity pics (with my hubby and 2 year old son) and my son's birthday party.  For my maternity pics, she was able to make me feel beautiful, even though I looked like a torpedo (I swear a stranger at Costco laughed at how large and bullet shaped I was because he couldn't tell I was pregnant from the back).  And, she got my son to cooperate during the pics, who was feeling very grumpy that day.  It's key that she has a son also, so she knows how to work with toddlers.  Her energy and enthusiasm are infectious.

    Now, if I had just met Daphne before I had my 2 sons, then maybe I'd consider the boudoir photoshoot....but not now!  But, if ever there was someone who could convince me that I will still a hot mama and make me feel comfortable doing the shoot, it would be Daphne.

  •   I was a bit hesitant to get newborn photos.  First, I had a not so great experience with a photographer for my first child--one who charged a fortune for posed studio shots and made me drive out to her studio to see the pictures on her computer before i could order.  Yuck. Second, did i really want professional photos of me looking sleep deprived and puffy? Third, did i really want someone to come over to my house 5 days after giving birth? Thankfully, I did it anyway and now my house is plastered in Daphne Hargrove photographs.

    Daphne is so warm and friendly, I felt like she was part of the family. She did a great job of getting my toddler to feel like he was just as special as my newborn and she captured the most amazing moments and smiles.  Best of all, the photos aren't of us in some fake poses with a white background--they're photos of our family having fun in our house. Real and beautiful.

      Daphne is incredible! I would recommend her for any of your photography needs on Oahu. From the start, she was very kind, our email communication was prompt, and she was very flexible with scheduling.

    Booking a boudoir photo shoot, I was looking for someone professional and classy and Daphne was absolutely both! She made me feel so comfortable and confident shooting on the beach (even with a few other beachgoers hanging around)!  She made all the poses feel natural and fun - never forced or awkward!

    Photo turnaround was just about 1 week and she delivers all photos via a secure online gallery as well as through Dropbox!

    Can't wait to work with her again in the future 🙂

  •   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!

      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.

      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!
