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.

Christina, Will & their dog, Marry on a PERFECT Makena Morning

Although Christina & Will hadn’t known each other for very long, they knew they were perfect for each other & decided to just do it! Of course getting married without their close friends & family was NOT an option. Either was getting married without their dog! Yes “Butch” also flew out on their private jet & was even part of the wedding! While viewing their images look for the two of them looking to their left. In this picture they are calling for Butch who runs to the ceremony with their rings. “Butch” was the perfect bestman!
Of course the location out in Makena was SUPER Spectacular. The early morning light made for beautiful color & the joy they shared was contagious!!!

Enjoy the pictures!!!

June 1, 2010 - 7:50 AM Darcy - I've been following your blog ever since finding out you would be the photographer for our wedding on June 10th. I LOVE your work and can't wait to meet you!

Lisa & Mark Spend the entire day celebrating their Wedding!

Not so often am I asked to start shooting in the morning and finish after sunset. Lisa & Mark had Sugarmans Plantation House rented for the whole day, & thats just what we did. In all the years working on this property, I had never shot there first thing in the morning. OMG the place was SO BEAUTIFUL! I love that turquoise water & brilliant blue sky as the back drop. It was really fun working with everyone as well on such a joyous day. As magical as the day was, the sunset was pretty amazing also. Enjoy!!!!

Megan & Patrick Marry on Maui’s West Side

Meagan & Patrick had a beautiful wedding with perfect weather! The wedding site is located on Maui’s gorgeous West Shore, not far from the famous surf break Honolua Bay. Throughout the wedding, whales breached & put on a show for us. Very spectacular!!! Alii Aumakua Weddings took care of all the details on the grounds of the beautiful Brennan Estate. You could tell how excited Patrick was on marrying Meagan as he was absolutely “giddy”. Every moment that he could, he would steal kisses or do something fun. It was really a superb wedding with great people! Congratulations to them both. Enjoy the pictures!
