I'm so happy and amazed at how everything turned out for our newborn photoshoot! Daphne was prompt, professional, and very easy to communicate with from the start. Photoshoot was relaxed but so fun! Pictures speak for themselves. She is so talented and able to capture the most intimate and precious moments. I highly recommend (as did so many moms I've spoken with on Oahu!)
She’s wicked talented. Do it.
Daphne was incredibly amazing during my photoshoot. She was by far the best person I have met in years, her personality and positive energy made the photoshoot a very fun experience. I definitely recommend her to friends and family or anyone looking for a professional photographer in Hawaii. Thank you so much Daphne!!!
We went to Daphne for family photos while vacationing in Hawaii. She did such an OUTSTANDING job. The photos were everything we hoped for and much much more. We live in Wisconsin and don't know the island well. Daphne helped us plan the perfect location and time of day for lighting. Her attention to detail is incredible. Planning the details of where, when, etc. was so easy with her - she is so amazing to work with. It's very rare that our family is able to all be in the same location for photos so this vacation was the perfect opportunity. We had a two year old and ten year old at the shoot which she managed so well. She is fun, energetic, and makes you feel so comfortable. Daphne got amazing photos of the entire family. And not only that - but the scenery around us was so stunning, it was a fun way to spend a couple hours together in Hawaii! Thank you, Daphne!
Ahh, I don't know where to begin...first time visiting Hawaii for our babymoon and I literally contacted 10-15 photographers trying to find the best one. Daphane got back to me so promptly and professionally, her communication was amazing - she provided me with full details of everything I wanted to know. She is so professional, enthusiastic and so much FUN to work with. My husband and I absolutely loved her so much! We originally had an earlier date scheduled for our shoot but it was raining all day, Daphne was so great she stayed in touch to determine if we could still proceed should the rain stop. Unfortunately, the rain did not stop that day and it prevented us from doing our shoot. She was so accommodating and planned another day with us even though it was her day with her son, she came and picked us up from our hotel and brought us back. With that being said, our photos turned out absolutely stunning, there isn't one picture that we don't like. She is so creative and has such a unique style of photography.I had told her the kind of pictures I was looking for and she brought it all to life. Her turn around time is just incredible, we had all of our photos edited and finished in 4 days. If you're looking for someone with amazing photography talent, is friendly, fun to work with please don't waste time like I did searching until I found her - I wish I had found her right from the beginning I wouldn't have gone any further. Daphane THANK YOU so much for giving us such beautiful pictures that we get to keep forever and I truly hope to see you again some day with our little one. And thank you for all the recommendations around Hawaii. You are so amazing, I love your energy!
My Wife and I had done extensive research on photographers on the island for a newborn photo shoot. For skill, attitude, artistic mind, amount of photos and price Daphne is the BEST on Oahu and all the islands. She is always reachable, answers all questions, and will accommodate requests. Our family and newborn shoot was easy, comfortable and done in our home. The photos were amazing! Contact her compare her all around photography skills, her price with the amount of photos you receive and by far you are getting an amazing experience and life moments you will always treasure.
Daphne was SO sweet and up beat! She was so enthusiastic and helpful during the shoot. She's so easy and fun to be around and you can definitely tell in the pictures. She captured the true me, and made me feel so beautiful all while having fun! I would 100000% recommend daphne and I hope to be able to be in front of her camera again ☺️ Thank you so much Daphne!!
Daphne did an AMAZING job on my maternity shoot! I reached out after seeing all her great reviews on yelp since my husband and I were going on our babymoom to Hawaii and wanted to take advantage of the scenery. After seeing her portfolio and pricing I decided to book her, she made the process easy and smooth. Daphne chose an beautiful location for our shoot given we were visiting and not familiar with the area. The day of our shoot it was a bit gloomy and it began to rain but we decided to wait it out and once the rain stopped we were able to get some beautiful shots. Daphne was super friendly and really easy to work with, she was fun and it made us feel comfortable. I love that she knows what she's doing and directed us every step of the way to get some really great poses and also some candids. Overall, we had a great experience and definitely recommend her for any of your photography needs!
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!
Daphne is awesome to work with! She is very encouraging and gives lots of great feedback and direction. Daphne is extremely professional and timely with proofs to choose from. The quality of photos is amazing! She is prompt with responses and answering questions. Definitely would recommend her to anyone looking to get professional, high quality photos done!
Daphne was amazing to work with. She made sure the location was perfect and worked with us to give us the exact pictures that we had envisioned. She made the shoot comfortable and fun. We will definitely be calling her again!!!
I was impressed with Daphne from the first response to my message about doing a photo shoot with her. She is enthusiastic, passionate, professional and everything else you would expect from a highly talented and remarkable artistic photographer. She has a gift to peer through the lens of a camera and capture the essence of her subjects. The atmosphere is so light and happy when working with Daphne and it shows in the images she creates! More importantly, she listened to what I wanted and delivered! Thank you,. Daphne, for allowing me to see the beauty in myself through images!!!
Daphne is an absolutely amazing photographer. She took family photos for us and I couldn't be happier-- she made the whole thing fun for the kids and the photos are gorgeous! I can't recommend her highly enough!!
Daphne is warm, positive, patient, professional and talented. Having Daphne capture photos of our family was so much fun! We enjoyed ourselves so much, the time spent with her flew by. She has an excellent eye for lighting, settings, and positions. My children absolutely adore her and we were all so comfortable around her, laughing and smiling. She took many candid photos, as well as poses, and they all turned out beautifully! We already have Daphne booked for next year's family holiday photos and I am even mustering the courage to do a boudoir photo shoot with her in the future ;)
My husband and I recently traveled to Oahu for our babymoon, and we knew we wanted beach maternity photos. After researching A LOT of photographers, we decided to go with Daphne. Not only was her portfolio beautiful, but I also appreciated that she gave us all of the photos from our shoot (instead of limiting us to only a couple of dozen, like most photographers do!). She suggested several locations, and we settled on the most gorgeous cove with black volcanic rock and even a cave. Her turnaround was less than a week, and we were very pleased with the results. We are so thankful that we have beautiful photos to commemorate this special time in our lives!
Daphne was amazing to work with! I contacted her to do a photoshoot during my trip to Hawaii. From the start she made the whole process easy! She was also very prompt in responding any questions or concerns I had. Now for the photoshoot day, me and my fiancé had such a great time and Daphne made it very fun for us! The final results were beyond amazing. We got so many compliments on the photos and we couldn't be happier.
I was nervous about doing a boudoir shoot before my wedding, but Daphne was fantastic. She made me feel totally comfortable, gave me lots of guidance on poses, and the experience turned out to be really fun! My photos came out amazing, and my husband thought it was the greatest surprise! I highly recommend Daphne!
I needed a photographer on short notice on a special trip to Oahu with my girlfriend. Daphne to the rescue. She was very friendly, was able to accommodate with what was needed, prompt with her response time, and has excellent customer service. Oh yah…and her photos were picture perfect! Thank you so much for going out of your way to help me pick the perfect location and capturing that very special moment of my beautiful girlfriend blossoming into my now beautiful fiancée!
I reached out to Daphne online, to help plan a surprise proposal during a recent vacation in Hawaii. She was very easy to work with and suggested a great spot, with an amazing back drop to capture the special moment. The Photos turned out amazing and I am so glad that we were able to capture some amazing photos of this special moment. Thank you Daphne, would highly recommend!
We had the best maternity photo session with the most professional, talented, and creative Daphne. She made us feel so relaxed from the beginning and the entire process was really fun. We were very pleased with each photo she picked and the retouching was great too. This was without a doubt the best experience we have had with a photographer and we look forward to working with her again in the future!
Daphne photographed the birth of our second child born on Nov 7, 2016. Maverick came at 3:22 am. I had contacted Daphne months before, before I had picked an OB or even knew which hospital I would deliver at I knew I wanted Daphne. It was incredibly special to have such intimate pictures. Despite poor lighting and a small crowded room they were perfect and the turn around time was lightening fast. Every time I see them I cry. Thank you for capturing one of the most important moments of our lives.
Daphne did such an amazing and beautiful job with my maternity photos! If I can give her more stars I would. She is very friendly and made it so comfortable to be in front of a camera since my husband and I are not photogenic. She was also very patient with my labrador since he was included in the pictures as well.
Daphne was so great to work with throughout the whole process. It can be very nerve-wracking to get ready for a boudoir shoot especially when you've never done it before, but she made it a very easy and smooth process. She was very communicative throughout the shoot and helped me feel comfortable so that my pictures came out amazing! I would highly recommend to her any of my friends/family as she was super professional and I think boudoir shoots are her specialty!
She is an amazing and inspiring photographer
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.
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.
Daphne did a family shoot for us and it was truly amazing -- we are so pleased and will treasure the photos. She is so talented and the photos are professional quality. We are so happy we hired her and will do so again.
Daphne is an amazing photographer who truly loves what she does and it shows! She will make you feel comfortable and insure you have a great time and love your photos. Daphne was very responsive to ideas and I got my pictures back very quickly. I would highly recommend her for any type of photography you may be interested in---she is very gifted and a joy to work with!
Daphne is an amazing photographer. She makes you feel so beautiful, and relaxed. It was a pleasure working with her, she's a real pro all the way. Her directions for posing were so exact, that the pictures come out how you want them to. I will definitely have her take photos of me again in the near future. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants their pictures to come out stunning, and remarkably sexy. M. Higuchi
Anyone can take a photo. Daphne captures the moment in an artistic and angelic view. She captures every moment and when you look back it tells a story. She is absolutely amazing and talented. At first I was looking forward to getting our Maternity Photos done but after working with Daphne within 5 minutes we could not be happier with the experience and the results! Not only was she professional and prepared for a list of different shots and ideas, but also she has a true talent of capturing the moment and letting her subject's soul shine through each photo. We were blown away at how beautiful and real we appeared in our photos. We were so impressed with Daphne's skill that we asked her to take our son's first pictures. Thanks to Daphne, we now have a trove of timeless memories that we will be able to share with my child and cherish for a lifetime
I was introduced to Daphne through a friend, and was immediately impressed with the creative, expressive, and professional quality of her photos. I've already used her for four different photo shoots in the past 2 years - an early maternity, a late maternity, at the hospital when baby was born, and at home when baby was 5 days old. And trust me; if she can make me look this good right after I've given birth, then she's a true magician. I prefer Daphne over any other photographer I've worked with because she's fun, flexible, respectful, artistic, very professional, and quick - I'm still in awe at how many fantastic pictures she gets in so little time. How does she do it? I had one photo shoot where I was running late, and made it to the beach for a sunset shoot right as the sun was setting. In less than 20 minutes, she shot some incredible photos from all different angles on a packed beach...and yet the photos made it look like we were the only ones there, and we had over a 100 outstanding pictures to choose from. The other thing I like about Daphne is her quick response and turn around with the photos. She's returned all final photos in less than a week. I've had to wait 6 weeks to several months for other photographers. I've always felt comfortable and at ease during the photo shoots because of Daphne's easy-going and enthusiastic nature. It's so much fun doing a photo shoot with her! She has a keen eye for design in structured poses, and yet is also able to capture spontaneous, unplanned moments in a photojournalist style. It's like getting the best of both worlds in a photographer. So, I enthusiastically give Daphne 5 stars. I hope to use her as our family photographer for life!
Daphne took wonderful photos of us and our grandson. They are one of our most cherished mementos.
Daphne Hargrove Photography takes moments in time and turns them into magical memories. Professional, stylish, creative and fun!!! No matter what the occasion, big or small Daphne Hargrove gives it everything she's got to bring out the best with every click of her camera. Our family shoot will forever stay in our hearts, thank you Daphne!
Amazing pictures with aloha! My wife and I were lucky enough to have Daphne capture some of the most important moments of our lives and wish there were five more stars to select. She is fun and easy to work with, is extremely sensitive to the needs of the subjects she shoots (she took the greatest care to be aware of the needs of our newborn daughter during the shoot), is on time for everything (including an incredible turnaround time for delivery of the pictures), and has an artistic style and eye that most photographers spend an entire career trying to perfect. She also has a sense of aloha that far too many photographers on island seem to either not have or leave at home. And did I mention affordability? Hands down the best value we've ever had with a photographer - especially for the high quality product that we now have. She took three sessions for us: 1. Maternity shots just a week before our daughter was born. 2. Newborn pictures of our daughter. 3. Family pictures of us, our daughter and our dog (focusing more on our dog). Note: our dog has since passed and we feel honored that Daphne was able to capture our family together with him. For all three sessions, Daphne was INCREDIBLE and the final product still has us so happy that we often sit down and browse through the memories as if they were yesterday. Our friends and families rave over her work and we will continue to have her capture special occasions for our family as the years go by. Hands down the best in town!
Exceptional talent with outstanding service
The experience of taking boudoir photos, as a Valentine’s gift to my husband, was amazing! Daphne is so professional, efficient, and made me feel very comfortable. I just received the book of beautiful (and super sexy) photos and my husband loved it!!! Daphne Hargrove is truly a very talented photographer with a sharp artistic eye. Thank you! Quinn
She’s really easy to work with, and responds to inquiries right away! I am so pleased with the professional headshots. I would HIGHLY recommend her services. Daphne is also an amazing, professional. I am happy with the pictures and I am so pleased with her ability to make me feel so comfortable during the photo shoot!
AMAZING!!!!!!!! BEST PHOTOSHOOT & PHOTOGRAPHER!!!!!!
Daphne is truly awesome and an AMAZING photographer! I contacted her after seeing her work on her website and IG to do a boudoir photoshoot and she was such a pleasure to work with from beginning to end! Very quick to respond, super flexible and we worked out finding the best date/times to do both an indoor and beach shoot. Her studio was perfect, nice and clean and head the best setting to do a shoot. I didn't expect to have so much fun and she made the entire experience comfortable. Would highly recommend her to anyone looking to do a shoot, so great to work with and her photos are just incredible!
Awesome,Awesome 999 Quadrillion Stars
Daphne is a gifted, awesome,highly professional photographer. Her talent is worth every penny of it. She can capture encredible moments of timeless memories. She goes above and beyond her work. She picked me up at the Northshore even though it is 1.5hrs travel from Honolulu to the Northshore (one way) excluding the traffic then she had to bring me back to the beach house. My daughter and I will be back next year for more photoshoots from Daphne. FUN,FUN,FUN experience and encredible photos. If You want an awesome,compasionate photographer Daphne is the ONE give her a chance to do your photoshoot and you will never be disappointed. Forever Grateful Jazz
She made me feel very comfortable and I had a lot of fun doing the shoot.
Beautiful Photos, Great Photographer, Lovely Experience
We wanted to have our daughter's senior pictures taken on Oahu and found Daphne through all her great ratings. She was fantastic - easy to work with, a great communicator, super fun, and enthusiastic. She also offered to take family photos at the same time, which was such a nice bonus. Daphne was really quick in getting the photos edited and available to us and it could not have been a better experience. If you are looking for a photographer on Oahu, use Daphne! You will be so glad you did!
HIGH QUALITY SERVICE
I have hired many photographers and I can honestly say Daphne pictures are absolutely gorgeous!! She is the best!! Thank you Daphne we love your work and we highly recommended you !!
I had the pleasure of working with Daphne 3 years ago and it was an amazing experience. It was my first boudoir shoot and I was so nervous. However, she made me feel so comfortable and I had a blast! The pictures were stunning and she did a great job at highlighting my best features. I felt so sexy:) If only I still lived in Hawaii. If I ever go back, I will definitely be hiring her for a baby, couple or family photo shoot! You won’t go wrong if you hire Daphne!
Professional, FUN, energetic photographer
Daphne was SO sweet and up beat! She was so enthusiastic and helpful during the shoot. She's so easy and fun to be around and you can definitely tell in the pictures. She captured the true me, and made me feel so beautiful all while having fun! I would 100000% recommend daphne and I hope to be able to be in front of her camera again � Thank you so much Daphne!!
Profession, Natural, Energetic, and Beautiful pictures!
Amazing, Professional, Awesome Photographer!
Daphne has been photographing our family for 5 years. She consistently is able to capture the spirit, energy and love of my 2 kids who amazingly behave for one whole hour while she shoots. She makes the process fun! She is professional (delivers quality on time) and creative (has suggested fresh new venues for our photos). I found Daphne because my previous photographer was taking a break - but Daphne has been so amazing that we keep coming back year after year!
Amazing Photographer, High Quality Photos...etc!!
I contacted Daphne over a year ago when I book my trip. I knew it was a once in a life time trip for my daughter and me so we wanted pictures to go with the memories. When the day came for us to leave for our trip, I had to contact Daphne to make changes to our date because of our activities that were planned. She was very accommodating and had another date available even with the short notice. The day of our pictures came and the weather was a little more unpredictable and rainy but we talked and took an open window we thought we had and headed out. We had so much fun quickly running around on the beach trying to capture all the shots before the clouds would open up again. She was relaxed and having fun, which allowed my daughter and I to feel the same way. The pictures speak for themselves along with the amazing qualities she has as a photographer. If and when we're able to go back, we'll be contacting Daphne again!! I would strongly encourage anyone that would like pictures done to contact her. SHE IS AMAZING!!!!
Great personality and quality work
Daphne is one of those women that make you feel like a goddess... or a mermaid ... or a mermaid goddess! From the beginning she was very professional and very receptive to my emails. She was able to fit me into her busy holiday scheduled which I greatly appreciated. The day of the shoot I was very nervous and unsure because I am not very photogenic. She helped me to relax and was very encouraging while still being professional. I had a blast shooting with her and wanted to keep going after our time ended. Daphne understands body movement, art and lighting. The shots were incredible and the turn around time was prompt. My jaw dropped when I saw how awesome these photos turned out. I highly recommend Daphne if you are looking for a fun, passionate and artistic photographer who produces quality results and has stellar reviews to match . Thank you so much Daphne ! I look forward to taking photos with you in the future!
High quality photos
High Quality Service
It was our first time in Hawaii & we are so happy to have found Daphne as our photographer, she was so helpful & took amazing pictures of us! she made us feel so comfortable & I would highly reccomend her to anyone who is looking for amazing memories to be captured :)
Daphne is the BEST Photographer!!!
The Best Photographer Ever!
Gorgeous Beach Maternity Photos!
My husband, our 10 month old and I just had our first family photographs taken by Daphne and we absolutely LOVE them! At first I struggled on the location to have them taken at since there are so many beautiful places on the island. Daphne was extremely flexible. She made a number of location suggestions and was even happy to come to my home to shoot. Daphne was really easy and fun to work with. She made us all feel really comfortable. She captured moments with our son that I will cherish forever! She was extremely fast on getting our finished photographs back to us. I highly recommend Daphne. My only regret is that I didn't get our pictures taken sooner.
Capturing The Moments...
Daphne is an excellent photographer! She knows how to take your ideas/visions, and has an eye of capturing the perfect moments. If you are looking for a photographer who creative, caring, talented, and efficient... then I highly recommend Daphne to capture your special moments that create memories.
Great experience and stunning photographs.
Daphne is an excellent Professional Photographer who knows her craft that she makes the process look so easy! She helped me choose the right spots and suggested great angles with fantastic backgrounds. The results you get are amazing. I loved each and everyone of my photographs so much that I bought all 64 of them. She is a true pro. You cant go wrong with her.
Wonderful personality and beautiful photos
My family and I recently went on an amazing trip to Oahu. While planning our trip, I decided on having some family photos taken. I did my research and found Daphne. I was nervous when making the arrangements since we had never been to the island and wasn't sure where we should go to have the photos taken. Daphne gave me some wonderful options and worked with me to help find our perfect spot. She was very professional. She was able to give us the photos we desired and was open to our suggestions as well. We received our photos quickly and fell in love with them. Daphne also gave us a few tips on great spots to visit while on the island.
A+++ HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. GREAT TO WORK WITH!
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!
I highly recommend Daphne to photograph any special moment! She was excellent with her service, communication, and photography skills and exceeded my expectations. I greatly appreciate Daphne for capturing my proposal to my now fiancée and helping me pick the perfect location!
I am so thankful that my friend Jessica found Daphne for our Hawaiian shoot!! The shots are stunning and out of this world!! Daphne picked a beautiful spot to do our shoot, She is so down to earth and very helpful with your poses. her angles are so unique she makes you look good no matter angle she shoots. I highly recommend Daphne!! you will NOT be disappointed!! You will want all your photos!!
High quality service, professional, friendly, and great work!
My husband and I were recently vacationing in Oahu for our baby moon and thought it would be fun to have our maternity phones done in Hawaii. I did some research and found Daphne on yelp. She was responsive and I loved the work I saw on her website. After narrowing it down to three photographers we had found online and one that was a referral through a high school friend, we decided to go with Daphne. She was pleasant and professional in her communications prior to meeting her and she came across flexible with her packages. She is even more fabulous in person. We met up at a beach that was a bit rocky (very prego lady friendly though) which would have been challenging for me to navigate through in the flip flops I had with me. Of course, she had more stable flip flops in her car and let me borrow them. She exudes confidence and my husband and I were very comfortable with her. Although I was 7 months pregnant at the time, she found ways to make be feel good about rocking my baby belly. We love our pictures! She recommended a beautiful location and we we were fortunate to have great weather. I strongly recommend working with her if you're local or visiting the area. We loved her energy and her work.
Surprise engagement - she's amazing!!
Daphne was so professional and fun to work with! All of her photographs are high quality and capture such special moments! She is quick in communicating and is always smiling! We loved working with Daphne and would highly recommend her to anyone :)
Superb professional photography
Daphne did an awesome job with photo shoot for our 8 year old daughter. Her correspondence was timely and she was very flexible with dates and locations. We intended to just photograph our daughter but Daphne incorporated family photos, which in hindsight I'm glad she did! She made our daughter feel very comfortable, made the photo shoot fun with great props and best of all the photos turned out great! We would absolutely recommend Daphne again!
Capturing the most special time of our lives
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!
Finally I have photos that I love enough to blow up and put on the wall!
Daphne is amazing! She took the most awesome photos of me, my husband and our two little boys! We previously paid for professional photos but we're unable to use any as there weren't any pictures when we were all smiling or looking in the same direction. I mentioned this to Daphne before the photoshoot and she was sure to capture many photos that we could use. Also, she brought props that made the photos more interesting. The only thing now is to try to narrow down all those awesome photos to select just a few to put on the wall...
You're in good hands with Daphne!
Daphne has a very warm personality and did a great job putting us at ease as she photographed the celebration of our 30th anniversary! The pictures turned out beautifully and captured the spirit of the day! She was very easy to contact and responded promptly to our Emails. I would most definitely recommend Daphne - she is an excellent photographer!
Daphne is reliable, talented and now experienced in Birth Photobraphy
High quality service with an even better end product!
From beginning to end; scheduling, brainstorming ideas, relaxing atmosphere for the photoshoot and great photos that I will keep forever, Daphne was amazing! This experience was way outside of my comfort zone, but her energy and support really made this experience one that I am glad to have tried. And the photos still blow me away! I am happy to have them!
Professional and FUN photo sessions!
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!
Daphne did such an amazing and beautiful job with my maternity pictures. If I could give her more stars I would! She was very flexible with the date of the shoot due to the bad weather we were having. I included my labrador in the maternity pictures and she was so patient with my fur baby. My husband and I are not photogenic but she was awesome enough to let us know if we had to smile, turn a certain way, etc. to make the pictures come out great. She is very friendly and makes it so comfortable to be in front of a camera.
Wonderful service and so easy to work with!
Daph is such a talented photographer. I've done a family fun shoot and a buduoir shoot as a surprise for my husband's birthday. At first I was hesitant because I wanted to be in the best shape of my life before doing the shoot. After talking to Daph and was reassured, I went for it. I've done buduoir shoots before and felt ok about the results so I was hoping to like the the results of this session more than my others. When Daph reviewed my pictures with me, I was in tears! I LOVED the entire spread! I couldn't believe how great she made me look 😍 It was as if she read my mind and saw the images in my head of how I portrayed sexy and sultry to be. Needless to say my husband LOVED the beautiful album Daph helped me create for his birthday gift. I am so grateful I did the shoot because I don't think I can look as good as I did! Thank you Daph, you are truly talented and I am so glad you'll help so many out there capture their sexy self😘
What a wonderful experience. Contacted Dapane Hargrove photography while on vacation last week when our daughter wanted her senior pictures taken. We called Dapane and she was there the next day. She wss able to capture the beauty of my daughter as well as the island. We received access to the pictures before we left 2 days later. She processed and edited so quickly. Dapane is extremely professional And knows how to get the pictures the way you want. I would highly recommend her and wish her continued success. Thank you very much.
A-MA-ZING....I was terrified at first but it was the absolute best experience!!!
So much fun!
The very best!
Daphne is the real deal. We used her for a family shoot and were happy beyond our expectations. She is a very talented photographer who does high quality professional work.
I'm a Realtor and have worked with many photographers and have seen good photos and REALLY bad photos, and any one who has worked with Daphne knows that she is an outstanding creative photographer who really goes the extra mile! I have done four photo sessions with her so far- one maternity session, one newborn session, one for my business Christmas cards which featured my family and two dogs, and one for boudoir, and each time she made me feel more than comfortable and her shots were AMAZING! She and her work are top notch in my book!
What a great experience!
Daphne was fantastic to work with. Instead of a compilation of a bunch of fantastic photos, she took the time to help me create a photo album that had special meaning for my fiancé and me. Daphne's professionalism and exuberant personality made me feel at ease during the shoot. From before the shoot to the final proof, she listened to my ideas and was instrumental in making my vision become a reality. I do not consider myself photogenic, yet the photos turned out truly amazing and my fiancé absolutely loves the album. The album and case are of a stylish and durable quality. My fiancé absolutely loved the photos so much that he wants to order other photos from the shoot. In addition, we decided to hire Daphne to do a couples photo shoot in the near future. This was money well spent and I highly recommend Daphne for any of your photography needs.
I don't usually like getting my picture taken, but while visiting a friend on O'ahu, she suggested I get some fun and sexy photos taken by Daphne. I couldn't be happier with the results. Daphne was very professional and made me feel like the most beautiful woman on the beach. She knows just the right angles to hide unflattering body parts. She made it possible for me to relax in what would typically be a very uncomfortable situation for me. I am forever grateful that I have these images of myself feeling and looking beautiful in the most beautiful location.
fun and fantastic pictures
I have to admit that this is my first review; I'm an avid reader of reviews, but don't take the time to actually write a review. However, my photo shoots with Daphne have been so outstanding that I feel compelled to share my experience with others. She's amazing. I was introduced to Daphne through a friend, and was immediately impressed with the creative, expressive, and professional quality of her photos. I've already used her for four different photo shoots in the past 2 years - an early maternity, a late maternity, at the hospital when baby was born, and at home when baby was 5 days old. And trust me; if she can make me look this good right after I've given birth, then she's a true magician. I prefer Daphne over any other photographer I've worked with because she's fun, flexible, respectful, artistic, very professional, and quick - I'm still in awe at how many fantastic pictures she gets in so little time. How does she do it? I had one photo shoot where I was running late, and made it to the beach for a sunset shoot right as the sun was setting. In less than 20 minutes, she shot some incredible photos from all different angles on a packed beach...and yet the photos made it look like we were the only ones there, and we had over a 100 outstanding pictures to choose from. The other thing I like about Daphne is her quick response and turn around with the photos. She's returned all final photos in less than a week. I've had to wait 6 weeks to several months for other photographers. I've always felt comfortable and at ease during the photo shoots because of Daphne's easy-going and enthusiastic nature. It's so much fun doing a photo shoot with her! She has a keen eye for design in structured poses, and yet is also able to capture spontaneous, unplanned moments in a photojournalist style. It's like getting the best of both worlds in a photographer. So, I enthusiastically give Daphne 5 stars. I hope to use her as our family photographer for life!
Modern and Fresh photography for all occasions
Amazing pictures with aloha!
My wife and I were lucky enough to have Daphne capture some of the most important moments of our lives and wish there were five more stars to select. She is fun and easy to work with, is extremely sensitive to the needs of the subjects she shoots (she took the greatest care to be aware of the needs of our newborn daughter during the shoot), is on time for everything (including an incredible turnaround time for delivery of the pictures), and has an artistic style and eye that most photographers spend an entire career trying to perfect. She also has a sense of aloha that far too many photographers on island seem to either not have or leave at home. And did I mention affordability? Hands down the best value we've ever had with a photographer - especially for the high quality product that we now have. She took three sessions for us: 1. Maternity shots just a week before our daughter was born. 2. Newborn pictures of our daughter. 3. Family pictures of us, our daughter and our dog (focusing more on our dog). Note: our dog has since passed and we feel honored that Daphne was able to capture our family together with him. For all three sessions, Daphne was INCREDIBLE and the final product still has us so happy that we often sit down and browse through the memories as if they were yesterday. Our friends and families rave over her work and we will continue to have her capture special occasions for our family as the years go by. Hands down the best in town!
Highly recommended! Very professional, prompt, and talented!
We booked Daphne for a maternity shoot and she was full of great creative ideas and made us feel extremely comfortable. This was a recipe for a great shoot and photos that we will cherish forever. She has a great eye for composition so we had tons of great proofs to choose from. We were so satisfied that we booked her again for a shoot after our baby was born. And, again, she was incredibly professional but also personable, making the whole experience enjoyable, from shoot to final printed photos. Additionally, she really makes you feel like she appreciates your business. I could not be more satisfied with her services.
Her amazing photography skills made me a 3 time repeat customer!!
I have used Daphnes's services multiple times for personal, family, and business. Several years ago, I hired Daphne to do my boudoir photos. I wanted to create a book of sexy images as a Valentines Day gift to my husband. The photo session was so fun. Daphne instantly put me at ease and made me feel comfortable and beautiful! The images she took were truly stunning! So of course, when I wanted to capture moments to remember of my ohana, there was no other choice for photographer. I have 3 kids and my youngest was less than 2 years old and always a moving target. Daphne was so great working with all of them. She moments she caught on camera are magical! Our family photos are beautiful and I am so grateful to have them to look back on. Recently, I used Daphne for a professional photo shoot for my jewelry business. She took stunning product shots for my website! I am beyond impressed at her talent. She put my models at ease and made each photo look so natural. It was such a fun day working with her. She has an amazing eye for capturing beauty and was able to style my jewelry and models to get the perfect shot. I cannot say enough how talented, friendly, and professional this photographer is!!!
Exceeded Expectations and helped me book jobs!!!
I was referred by a friend and had not seen any of Daphne's work prior, but needed help in putting together my first series of head shots & style pics for a modeling & talent agency. Daphne was awesome and made me feel at ease and comfortable from the very start. Instinctive and open to my suggestions she worked efficiently and with positive energy. The photos turned out awesomely and were applauded by the Director of the Model Agency. I ended up booking 3 TV commercials in my first year based on these portfolio photos!
Daphne did a boudoir shoot for my 40th birthday as a gift for myself and for my husband's upcoming birthday. At first I was hesitant because as a woman I'm sure you can relate when I say it's never a perfect time to do one of these shoots because there's always more weight to lose, more sit ups for tighter abs, more squats for a better rear etc...I finally said just do it because I'll never be perfect. I've done a few of these shoots throughout the years and the came out fine. I'm always glad I did them. I thought I had an idea what to expect, but I was wrong...... When I met Daphne, she made me feel comfortable immediately. Sweetest person and kept it light and fun. You know how sometimes when you have ideas on how you want things to turn out but can't quite explain it? Well I've always had ideas on how I would like some of these photos to turn out but always too embarrassed to actually express myself to the photographer. Figured, there's only so much a camera can do to make a person look any better or sexier than they are. I just wanted something sexy and sensual to give my hubby as a birthday gift. Daphne, I think read my mind....she knew exactly what she was doing. When I saw these pictures.....OMG!!! I was in tears! I couldn't believe that was me!!!! I looked the best I've ever seen myself!! She is amazing!!! I'm soooo happy I did it as a gift for myself and my husband because it's priceless!! People age and if you miss the opportunity, you won't look as good as 2yrs, 3yrs, 10yrs ago....you get what I mean. Just do it!!! You'll be so grateful you did. Thank you so much Daphne!! That was a dream photo shoot for me. My husband actually had tears looking at the book I made for his birthday. Guess he loved it too!!
Best photographer I have ever worked with!!
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 years to come!!
Anyone can take a photo. Daphne captures the moment in an artistic and angelic view. She captures every moment and when you look back it tells a story. She is absolutely amazing and talented. At first I was looking forward to getting our Maternity Photos done but after working with Daphne within 5 minutes we could not be happier with the experience and the results! Not only was she professional and prepared for a list of different shots and ideas, but also she has a true talent of capturing the moment and letting her subject's soul shine through each photo. We were blown away at how beautiful and real we appeared in our photos. We were so impressed with Daphne's skill that we asked her to take our son's first pictures. Thanks to Daphne, we now have a trove of timeless memories that we will be able to share with my child and cherish for a lifetime. Highly recommended!!
Oh. My. Gosh. Crazy hot! ...were the first thoughts that came to mind when when I saw my boudoir photos. Daphne is an amazing and talented photographer who knows all the right (and most flattering!) angles to shoot as well as the perfect poses. I felt completely confident that she would make me look my best. My friends would describe me as "very picky" but I absolutely LOVED all my photos. The more I look at them the more I love them. This was the first time I've ever had professional photos taken aside from my wedding and I was a little nervous. Daphne's professional yet relaxed manner and enthusiasm for her art made me feel comfortable right away. Book her! ~Yvette
Amazing, Personalized Photography!
Gorgeous family photographs. Daphne is amazing! Our family photo shoot was fun and easy. She managed to capture the true spirit of my very active 6 year old. There are so many amazing photos to choose from, I don't know how I'll choose one for our Christmas card. She made everything easy from start to finish, from scheduling the shoot to delivering our photos. We will definitely be using her in the future.
I wanted to create the perfect Father's Day gift for my husband, so I decided to hire Daphne. I made the right choice! Daphne is not only talented but she was patient with me, she listened to my needs and made me feel extremely comfortable. My husband was thrilled with his boudoir album. I will definitely hire Daphne again for all my photography needs.
Captured Beautiful Moments Without Us Even Knowing!
My favorite part of our photo shoot with Daphne was her ability to capture the candid moments that make a great photo. With three children in tow, it's always difficult to get everyone to smile at the camera at the same time. So, Daphne took advantage of our silly moments when we didnt' even know we were being photographed, and these candid moments were my favorites. If you're looking for a professional, friendly photographer who will photograph the essence of the moment, she's your gal!
A joyful, talented, and professional photographer!
Hiring the right photographer is a huge deal. I have hired Daphne Hargrove Photography for many different photoshoots. Her creativity, professionalism, personality and end product never disappoint. She is worth every penny and always gives 110%. The photos she has taken of me and my family are images captured at many precious times in my life. My working relationship started with Daphne when I hired her to do a Maternity photoshoot. I felt huge and gross but wanted to have some images of me, pregnant looking like a glowing, angelic, mommy to be. LOL. Daphne captured exactly that. She made me feel so comfortable and beautiful. After that it was a no brainer to hire Daphne to capture all the big events in our lives. Some other photoshoots I have hired Daphne for are, our family at the hospital after the birth of my son, my son in my home at 4 days old, a boudoir shoot of me post baby. :) Most recently she captured some images of my family with my son as a toddler running around just being a boy. All of these images I will cherish for the rest of my life. Once a moment is gone it's gone and to have GREAT images of such wonderful times in my life is truly a gift that Daphne has given to me. I am also a graphic designer and have used her images in some of my projects. I have worked with quite a few photographers in my time. Daphne is so easy to work with which in my line of work has been hard to find. The benefits to hiring Daphne over the many other photographers that I have worked with is that Daphne is always on time, knows her locations, equipment and has a clear vision when shooting. Her turn around time is incredibly quick and always works to make the clients happy! She is always happy, energetic and professional. When you find something great I think you should share it with everyone you know. I have referred her to many of my friends and colleagues and I have never heard a complaint. It's always great things I hear back!
