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 

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.

Alyssa & Tait’s Amazing Day

Alyssa & Tait interviewed me 2 years ago to cover their wedding. Due to scheduling conflicts, they had to change their original date. Their big day finally came though & was quite amazing! The Maria Lanakila Church in downtown Lahaina is perhaps one of the most beautiful churches in Maui. Their service was about an hour total & after tying the knot, we headed to Olowalu Plantation House for their reception. Olowalu was gorgeous that evening & fun was had by all. Congratulations to Alyssa & Tait!!! Mahalo for letting me be part of your special day!!!

Sheila & Chris ……….Finally get Married!

Their reception was just 50 feet from the waters edge & with all their family & friends present they were gifted with another spectaclar sunset! Enjoy the pics!

Brianna & Daniel Celebrate Pregnancy with a trip to Maui

I shot Brianna & Daniel’s wedding two years ago at The Fairmont Kea Lani here in Maui! It was a great wedding & I totally connected with them. Fast forward two years & Daniel calls me, telling me that he wants to surprise his pregnant wife with a photoshoot. So as planned, I was locked & loaded in the lobby hidden from her view, until the moment when he told her & I was ready. The first shot you see, is Brianne realizing he was serious about doing a photoshoot. In that picture she is just beginning to understand that it is me with the long lens! Classic! Had a great time working with them again & of course the sunset was SPECTACULAR! All week long the sunsets were “10’s” on the 1- 10 scale! Enjoy!!!
