Tad Craig Photography bio picture

Greetings from Beautiful Maui Hawaii

Born in Aspen, and raised in Telluride, Colorado, Tad has 
always had a passion for the outdoors and a reverence for the 
beauty of his natural surroundings.

Tad received his first camera, a Nikon FE2, as a high school 
graduation gift. Since then, he has been obsessed with 
perfecting his craft, constantly pushing himself to create 
better, more beautiful images. He began his career as a sports 
photographer shooting extreme sports in Colorado, Oregon, and 
Hawaii.
                 

The transition from Sports to Wedding Photographer evolved  with the help of three things: A Public Relations degree from C.U. Boulder, years of experience working in Five Star Hotels 
and a solid photography background. Tad skillfully blends 
traditional techniques with spontaneous photojournalism. The 
striking quality of his photographs is rooted in the basics: 
clean, simple compositions, a candid eye toward his subjects, 
and the ability to step out of the way to allow the 
breathtaking beauty of the Pacific speak for itself.

Tad prides himself on treating clients like friends and takes an 
invitation to photograph every event to heart. His professional, 
easy going personality will help make your special day relaxed, 
hassle free, and fun. His creative eye, attention to detail, and 
friendly, approachable nature have made him one of the most sought 
after photographers on the Islands. His gift for connecting with 
people and consistently delivering beautiful images will help turn 
your wedding dreams into reality.

Kristi & Michael tie the knot @ Merriman’s Kapalua

I see alot of beautiful dresses being a wedding photographer. Kristi’s dress was really eloquent!!! Of course Kristi & Mikes laughter & gorgeous location helped make the day pretty special as well. As always I really enjoyed working with White Orchid Wedding who took care of all the particular’s. Enjoy the pictures!

Kelly & Thurston Marry @ The Plantation House Kapalua

Talk about connecting with your clients! OMG these guys were great. Right away I felt super comfortable with both of them & Kelly had me rolling with her humor. They laughed & laughed through the evening as I recorded the moments. Did I mention the wind was blowing seemed like 40mph? No worries for these guys though as all that was important was enjoying each other & the beautiful evening. The Plantation House took care of all the details! Enjoy the pics & congrats to Kelly & Thurston!

Vanessa, Adam & Family come from around the world to see them wed in Maui

These two were fantastic to work with!!!!. Vanassa being from Canada & Adam being from down under made for an international crowd. Many accents & different languages, but the one common element is everyone was having a great time. White Orchid Wedding had taken care of all of the details beautifully. I loved how playful Vanessa & Adam were for the camera. Of course I was encouraging them to be playful. They had seen my silhoutte shot with all the people in it & insisted that we do that one also. Pretty fun huh??? Aloha & Enjoy!!!

April 2, 2010 - 6:32 PM Vanessa & Adam - It was a pleasured working with you. You made us feel so comfortable and your work is amazing. We can't wait to see the rest of the photos! The sunset shots are fantastic. Adam and Vanessa
