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.

Ashley & Adam’s Magical Makena Wedding

I met with Ashley & Adam in early December when they came to Maui to begin planning their Maui wedding. We immediately got along great!
Fast forward six months & all of the planning for their gorgeous wedding @ Sugarmans Plantation Estate in Makena came to fruition.
Tropical Maui Weddings took care of all of the beautiful details and put on a fantastic wedding!!!
My friend Kimokea was also a family friend of theirs & was the officiant. His words were as beautiful as the location in self! The evening was filled with laughter, joy & lots of dancing.
Enjoy the pictures & Congratulations to Ashley & Adam.
Thank you for letting me be part of your special day!

Four Seasons Maui Resort & Spa- Stephanie & Robert

When I arrived at Stephanie’s room to do pre-wedding pictures, I discovered how excited she was to tie the knot with her fiance.
She was absolutely glowing! The wedding location is quite incredible with terrific views of the Pacific Ocean. Of course all of the details were handled beautifully by The Four Seasons Maui. I love the photo of the two of them in their Disney hats. They had one of their first dates at Disneyland and of course when I saw the hats, I had to get a picture of them with it. Truly a fantastic evening.
Congrats to Stephanie & Robert!

Jordan’s Senior Portraits

As a gift for my girlfriends daughter, I shot some senior portraits for her. We went up the coast on Maui’s North Shore to Old Maui highschool. I wanted to try some alternative lighting using a full size softbox. We had a great time shooting as she was laughing & laughing & that uncontrolled giggiling, makes for great pictures! Enjoy & Congratulations to Jordan graduating high school with ((honors)) in just a few days!!!
