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.

Lori & Brian score the perfect evening for their Makena Wedding

The very first picture of the evening is of the Groom’s dad who just tried on the WRONG pair of pants. Check out his reaction. It’s hilarious! Lori & Brian & about 35 guests came all the way from Washington DC to have their wedding at the White Orchid Beach House in Makana Maui. The weather was perfect as clouds blanketed the sky during the afternoon & then the Spectacular sun showing it self at sunset.
Al Terry was the officiant for their nuptials & of course had everyone, (myself included) cracking up. Lori & Brian continued this practice of cracking up through out the evening. Super fun group of people to work with.
Congratualtions to the both of them. Enjoy the pictures. Tad

Caitlin & Ryan marry at The Gorgeous Blue Sky Villa!

Immediately upon arriving at the Gorgeous Blue Sky Villa on Maui’s West Side, I was captivated by Caitlin & her mom’s giant smiles & HUMONGOUS excitement for the wedding!
Caitlin was just beaming from ear to ear! Blue Sky Weddings had taken care of all the details, including ordering up the soft flattering light that I love shooting with. Midway through the wedding, Ryan’s dad picked up his acoustic guitar & played a soulful tribute to the newly weds. It was very beautiful.

My very best wishes go out to Caitlin & Ryan! Congratulations & thank you so much for letting me be a part of your most special day! Enjoy the pictures!
