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…

  •   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!

      This review is in regards to a family photo shoot shot on 8/18.

    Daphne is an absolute doll to work with. I was looking for something special when I booked my vacation to Hawaii so I surprised my wife with a family photo shoot. I had researched for a photographer on yelp that could accommodate a photo shoot with my 2 year old son and she delivered. Her response time is quick. From the day I got a quote to even a week after the shoot she always replied promptly to my messages.

    About the shoot:

    We had agreed on Kahala as the location for our shoot. She had recommended and with her years of experience I obliged. The day went off without a hitch and my toddler absolutely loved her. Daphne was able to get him to smile through out the entirety of the shoot. The session seemed to breeze through and we even had an outfit change for our son. It was very lively and there was no dull moments.

    About the pictures:

    Daphne hosts the pictures online but you can get a package with the physical copies. My family absolutely loved the quality of the images. We took about 200 photos so we had a lot to choose from.


    Daphne is for sure a 5 star professional photographer in the Honolulu area. I would definitely recommend her to my friends and use her services again next time I'm in the area.

      I wanted to do something really special for my boyfriend for our first Valentines... And with lots of research, I decided to do some boudoir pics and go with Daphne.  
    I'll tell yah, I have no regrets. So glad I made that decision. Daphne is awesome and amazing! Initially we had problems finding a time that works for both of us, but Daphne is very diligent in responding to my emails quickly. She made me feel comfortable and at ease even before the photo shoot. She explains the different options and her recommendations on what to wear/ bring for the photo shoot.
    I opted to do both indoor and outdoor pics (might as well, why not) and Wow, I had so much fun!  Her Waikiki studio felt like "home"... Quaint and comfy.. I was a bit nervous at first, but Daphne immediately eased my nerves.... She explained the different poses and made me feel so beautiful and sexy.  The beach photo shoot was such a blast too. It was a gorgeous afternoon for a shoot. I again felt a bit nervous with all the people at the beach but Daphne has a way of boosting your confidence and making it a fun, once in a lifetime experience .  
    I was happy and pleased at the final product. My pictures came out amazing. My boyfriend absolutely loved it and still talks about it months later!  I shared some of the pictures with my close friends and my mom.. My friends are now wanting to do a photo shoot too..
    I highly recommend Daphne .. Her fun, bubbly personality, and professionalism made my experience a great memorable one I will always cherish...

      My photoshoot was awesome, I got all my pictures a week later and Daphne also made a picture book for me! She was very quick to get me all my pictures and the quality was excellent!

      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.

      Daphne is absolutely incredible! She was so flexible with scheduling...I probably rescheduled 8 times over the last year and she was patient enough to help me. The idea of doing boudoir photos made me a little nervous, but she made the day soooo much fun! She is great at guiding you in how to pose, where to look, etc., while making you feel completely at ease. And when I saw the pictures, I couldn't believe it. As women we tend to be critical of ourselves and how we look, but wow....Daphne made even my overly critical self feel good 🙂 The end result was insane, and I am so impressed.

    Thank you Daphne for a very memorable day and for making me feel beautiful. I am amazed at how talented you are, and can tell that you love what you do. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!!!!! Can't wait to do another shoot with you! 🙂

  •   I heard about Daphne thought a mutual  friend and I thought " Why Not?' . Daphne was so great! We talk a little bit of what I had in mind and why I wanted to take the pictures. I needed this. I just wanted to feel feminine and alluring and sexy in private setting.  Done.  Daphne talked me through everything and I had the best time!

    Daphne makes you feel so comfortable while she's shooting.  She a the perfect mix of fun and professional. And I am so PLEASED with pictures!! I highly recommend her.

      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.

      A-MA-ZING! I wanted to do a boudoir shoot as a birthday gift for my husband.  I have seen a lot of women do them and for years I've been terrified to actually do it myself.  I never felt like my body was ready and I was afraid of being and looking awkward. I decided if I didn't do it now it was never going to happen. Not only did Daphne guide me on how to pose + have fun with it, she made me feel so comfortable and sexy (in a professional way of course) that I had the best time during the shoot. And when I saw actual pictures I was shocked at how good they came out.  Not because I didn't have faith in the photographer (I've seen her work) but I wasn't expecting myself to look that good. And of course my husband LOVED them.  Totally worth it and I can't recommend Daphne enough.

      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!
