About the photographer.

Digital photography has grown ubiquitous, flooding our lives with all manner of colourful content. Admidst the chatter, our own small stories can seem lost in the shuffle. But sometimes, an experience is so significant, that it cries out for its day in the sun. Such sparkling moments have the power to fascinate and astonish, but are not easily captured. Many elements are required: technology, technique, practice, confidence, and above all, creativity. The challenge never gets old, it never gets easy, it simply evolves at its own pace. And in this way, Erica finds her passion.

For those who know her, Erica remains a constant source of surprise. Her creative energy is voracious and inspirational. She has an instinctive ability to draw us into her world, where the boundaries between art, friendship and amusement cease to matter. Constantly searching for the next opportunity to seize something special, Erica is always at the ready. And when the time is right, Erica sets to work uncovering hidden treasure, with a technique so smooth and easy that participants often walk away feeling revived, as if they'd just spent an hour in the Maui surf. Later, when we sit and marvel at the images she's created, you can't help but feel that a story has been masterfully written, with images so striking a thousand words wouldn't tell such a tale.

Erica's growing portfolio displays a range of work that spans both the traditional and the uncommon. THis diverse mix hints at her own inner workings, for if nothing else, Erica is a woman of contrasts. Equally at home on stage, atop her surfboard, or tucked away in a darkroom, Erica can seem impossible to pin down. Yet it is through artistic expression that Erica's complex motivations effortlessly coalesce into her signature style. I invite you to see for yourself...

Erica is an amazing photographer. She is so easy to talk to and communicate with. She put are needs and desires first. She was extremely thorough and efficient on the wedding day. She got all of the important shots and so many more we wouldn't have even thought to get. We loved having her be part of our wedding day and if we ever needed a photographer in the future she would be only one we would go with.

Erica is simply the best. She is professional, easy to work with and her photography speaks for itself. We were so happy the results from our wedding in Maui and highly recommend her to anyone. Our wedding day was, as it should be, the most important day in our lives and Erica's capturing of these moments on film has ensured we can re-live our memories whenever and for as long as we want.

We are huge fans of Erica Chan Photography! I researched photographers on the island but didn’t get excited about any until I found Erica’s info and fell in love with her work. I showed my now husband who agreed that her style was exactly what we wanted but added, "I think we may have our hearts set on a Bentley when we can only afford a Corolla"! I didn't think we could afford her services but Erica was extremely accommodating. We exchanged dozens of emails and she was always so kind. She provided helpful advice about things like whether my getting ready picts should be at the hotel we were staying at or the home where the ceremony took place. Erica even made a special trip to that house in advance of the wedding to check out the space! Her service is first-rate. Erica was very sick just days before the big day and was worried she might not be 100% so she brought along a second photographer, at no cost to us, resulting in over 700+ photos! Erica was a fun, friendly, comfortable presence at our wedding. She took beautiful, artistic shots of the wedding details (rings, dress, cake, etc) and of everyone there, even the most camera-shy children! The photos are fantastic. I literally burst into tears twice while viewing them on the online proofing site - they were that beautiful. The hardest part was narrowing them down for an album. I will say that the albums are pretty pricey compared to Snapfish and similar sites. But we really wanted to show people photos when we returned from Maui and didn't want to do it on our iPhones! We splurged and had Erica design a beautiful album that was in our hands about 5 weeks after our wedding. Long story short - we adore Erica Chan Photography!

My Husband and I were very fortunate to have had Erica Chan as our wedding photographer, she was a perfect fit for us on our special day.
We had visited her profile and were blown away at the creativity and quality of her photos, and new that's who we wanted to capture the precious moments of our wedding day. We were married with our toes in the sand on the beautiful Island of Maui and it couldn't had been more perfect. Erica is a personable, profession, funny and fun gal that truly will do what it takes for "the perfect shot", I didn't have to worry a minute, I was confedent she would make the magic happen. We had our beach ceremony and reception and we had the privliage of her services the next morning for a SUPER FUN trash the dress shoot where we drove all around the Island riding bikes, climbing rocks and surfing in our wedding attire, she provided all the prob and seemed as excited as if it were her own wedding adventure.
Erica, thanks again for the forever lasting memories!
And for everyone else, I hope you have the privlege of working with Erica Chan yourselves.

Namaste

We could not be happier with Erica Chan! We initially just browsed her pictures on her website and loved her work, but that was just the beginning. Once we decided to go with her, she was quick to respond to any emails, she was upbeat/friendly and very positive, she listened to what we wanted and in the end did a fantastic job photographing our wedding. All our friends and family comment on how awesome our pictures turned out. We did not go with the album package, but she had a 'sneak peak' up on her blog within days of the wedding, and our pictures were given to us within 2 weeks! We loved the edits she did.. she truly got our vision. We got the additional photographer option, which was a great choice as the other photographer was amazing as well. My husband hates getting his picture taken, but Erica and her team made the whole day comfortable and very positive and he ended up actually enjoying the 2 hour photo-session after the wedding. We couldn't recommend Erica enough.. you will not be disappointed!! THANKS AGAIN Erica!

Erica is absolutely wonderful and extremely talented. We were so thankful to have Erica and Pete with us leading up to and on our wedding day!! We love the images from our engagement shoot and wedding day. We had a large bridal party of 20 people and Erica managed to coordinate the whole group and captured images that we will cherish forever. Not only is Erica a talented photographer but she is a great person who I loved sharing our big day with. I would highly recommend Erica and Pete. :)

I absolutely cannot say enough great things about Erica! From start to finish, she was wonderful. Photography was one of the most important aspects of my wedding. I wanted a great photographer to capture every moment of our ceremony since we were having a destination wedding and leaving so many friends and family at home. I contacted many photographers and looked through so many online portfolios, and Erica just stood out to me. She responded quickly to my emails, answering all of my questions at any time of the day. She was so friendly, and I just knew from the beginning that she was perfect for our wedding. I met her for the first time when I was about to walk down the aisle and she greeted me with a hug and smile. She captured every moment, from our guests arriving at the beach, to my husband and groomsmen before the ceremony. She took pictures of us all along the beach and did a great job of keeping beach goers out of our shots. You get all of your pictures on a disk, and believe me, she takes A LOT! She is truly a talented photographer and wonderful person! I would recommend her to anyone that is planning a destination wedding in Hawaii!

I have nothing but positive things to say about Erica Chan. She was professional, extremely easy to get along with, and probably the most talented photographer I've ever met.

I began communicating with Erica while she was still living in Hawaii, but she responded to e-mails so quickly that I never felt there was this huge distance between us. Furthermore, as we were planning my wedding, she was also planning hers! Remarkably, I never knew she had all this other busy stuff going on in her life because she was so attentive.

On the day of the wedding, Erica was somehow everywhere without feeling like she was everywhere. Throughout the ceremony and the reception, I hardy ever saw Erica or her extra photographer (who was also kind and talented) When we did see Erica, she had everything so thoroughly planned out that I didn't have to do any of the thinking -- she had visited the site earlier to scout for good photo locations, and found lots of places on the site that I didn't even know existed. Erica planned every minute before the wedding (even taking initiative to check when the sun sets so she could whisk me and the wedding party away to a beautiful location on the hills), and things went so smoothly that I was grateful to have one less thing to worry about on our wedding day.

After the wedding, my husband and I reviewed the pictures and were taken aback by how beautiful the pictures were. I do not consider myself someone comfortable in front of the camera, but Erica made me feel at ease. Also, we wondered how Erica managed to take the HUGE number of beautiful pictures she did considering we felt we hardly saw her all night. Clearly, she navigated the wedding like a stealth ninja.

Erica Chan went out of her way to make our day a special and memorable one. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
