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.

Alyssa & Michael Retie The Knot & then trash the dress

Both Alyssa & Michael were so excited to “Retie” the knot after 8 years of marriage. They had a morning renewal at Makena Cove & it was picture perfect! (Although very hot). After a sweet little ceremony by Pastor Vance, we did some pictures. In conversation, I casually suggested that maybe they should go in the water. They both thought about it for about, ummmm (1 minute) & agreed that Yes they should go “Trash the dress”! So much fun! Enjoy the pictures & congrats to Alyssa & Michael!

Emily & Zach, Styling @ Olowalu

OMG, I had so much fun shooting this wedding!!! I immediately connected with both of them & I loved their style. Emily’s dress seemed to come right out of the 1920’s & Zach followed suite with his own Classic Look & Super Cool Tie!!! Styling!!!
I loved shooting the natural light shots of them holding hands on the beach. Those seem to be right out of that era. Their day was gorgeous with blue skies & a gorgeous sunset made Olowalu’s beauty stand out. Enjoy the pictures & Congrats to Emily & Zach!

Amber & Ryan- Love at The Plantation House

Amber and Ryan met of all places … Las Vegas! It was the last night of both of their Vegas vacations and they met at a club. With Amber living in California and Ryan in Texas, the start of of their romance was long distance but that did not keep them away from each other.
Ryan is not only a “smooth dresser” but “smooth talker” and a gourmet chef. Amber was smitten from day one and within one year she had moved to Texas to be with him planning their wedding on Maui.
Their wedding day was stunning-beautiful. Lots of pink, violets and smiles.
Thank you for letting me be a part of your special day!
