 Photographs stir memories.  

Photographer Chace Purganan

     Born and raised in Los Angeles, California I started taking pictures in high school when my mother gave me her Canon AE-1.  I then went on to study photography at the innovative Pratt Institute in the heart of one of the world's multicultural epicenters for arts, culture, and design, Brooklyn, New York. I discovered my love for dramatic and stylish imagery working at Conde Nast's Women's Wear Daily, but the fashion world did not fulfill me.  I decided to change horizons.  Now I live in Honolulu, Hawaii creating work that truly has meaning.  At the very least, there are always two people who will deeply cherish my images.  I end each work day satisfied knowing that the art I created is important to someone.

     My approach is about capturing the moment while infusing art and creativity into it.  These images are a reminder of the happiness and love made on this day.  My job is to capture the emotions and passion felt by everyone while your job is to enjoy every second to it's fullest.  I am available to travel anywhere your celebration takes place.

     I would love to be a part of your special day.
