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.

Erica & Jon’s Gorgeous International Maui Wedding!

Location, location location!

You know how you always hear that phrase? Well from the very first moment upon my arrival at The Gorgeous, Ocean Front Estate on Maui’s west side, I was amazed with its beauty. With the sound of the waves breaking almost at your feet & the Rich Color your eyes are feasting on, you are left stopped in your tracks. Of course both the Bride & groom were loving it as well. Jon’s family had just flown in from France & they to were soaking in the beauty of the day! Tori Rogers of Hawaiian Weddings had taken care of all the details with Dellables Flowers making their flowers magical! Dennis Derego took care of the ministry duties & finally after 7 years it was done & they were married. Enjoy the pictures & the Beauty of Maui.

Congrats to Erica & Jon & Many Mahalos for making me a part of your gorgeous day! Tad

A Gannon’s Affair in Wailea.

Rebecca tried to cancel her first date with Geoff because she was too nervous (and the season finale of The Bachelor was airing). She told him she was too busy and tired but he convinced her they would just meet briefly since it was a work night for both of them. They made it home around 3:00 am after talking on a bench by a lake all night. Geoff eventually proposed on that same bench a little over a year later and the rest is history!
Just two years later, they said their “I Do’s” to each other at the stunning Gannon’s Restaurant overlooking the Pacific Ocean! With their family & a few closest friends, they united as ONE and had blast along the way!

My very best to Rebecca & Geoff. Have a Fantastic life together! Tad
