  •   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 is AWESOME and we had an AMAZING time with her on a family beach shoot on our recent trip to Oahu. As a person, she is fun, sweet, friendly, full of positive energy, and gives off such a great vibe. As a photographer, she is incredibly talented, professional, reliable, and an absolute pleasure to work with.

    I emailed Daphne after deciding we liked her work based on her portfolio. She was very quick to respond and great at communication. Her prices are very competitive and fair, and she will go that extra mile to make sure you are completely happy with your photos. We had so much fun during our photo shoot that my family is still talking about how great our photo session was. Her turn around time for delivering our edited photos was very quick, and we were all just blown away by how amazing the photos came out. Truly surpassed our expectations.

    Thank you, Daphne, for such a great experience and capturing such amazing memories of our trip! We look forward to working with you again on our next trip.

      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 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.

  •   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.

      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.

      Absolutley the BEST photographer on Oahu

    Daphne has such an incredible personality that makes her so wonderful and easy to work with. Perfect. Creative. Lovely. Fun and everything in between! I couldn't be happier with the photos she took and I know my husband is going to LOVE his christmas present. I will never be able to doubt my looks again Thanks to her. And I will never go to another photographer for as long as we live on Oahu!

      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!

  •   Daphne was absolutely AMAZING! I wish I could rate higher than just 5 stars. I was pretty nervous leading up to the shoot I did, but once I met Daphne and we were going up the elevator to her studio, any nervousness I felt washed away. She immediately made me feel sooo comfortable, which I feel is so important. There wasn't a single moment where I felt embarrassed or worried about my body - she made me feel confident throughout. I would totally do a shoot with her again.

    If you're looking for an awesome photographer, stop where you are and go with Daphne!

      Daphne is AWESOME! I did a maternity boudoir and outdoor photoshoot with her last week and was feeling self conscious about my body since I recently had a skin outbreak and I also felt huge. I definitely didn't feel sexy but Daphne made all my worries disappear as soon as I met her. She made me feel so comfortable, sexy, and I had so much fun doing the photoshoot. I received a link for my gallery with all my photos (all edited) within FOUR days of the photoshoot (this was over 100 photos!). I LOVED how my pictures turned out and would highly recommend her. She's so easy to work with and is very talented. Thanks Daphne!!!
