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.

Rock Star Wedding!

OMG this wedding was SO MUCH FUN to shoot!!! The groom is totally involved in The Rockstar Energy drink Racing Motorcycle team, along w much of the wedding party. Being the unique people they are; they had their wedding the “WAY” they wanted it. I loved Jennifer’s black wrap around her dress & of course all the Rockstar energy caps the groomsman were wearing. We were talking & when I told them I was also a sports photographer, they asked if they could do some “unusual” groomsman pictures! “Of course”, I replied! OMG, I was so cracking up it was hard to keep the camera still. They had me “rolling” just about the whole time. Congratulations to Jennifer and James!
