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.

Merrimans Beautiful Wedding in Kapalua

Merriman’s Wedding Kapalua on June 21, 2013

Love, Joy & Excitement describes this beautiful wedding! Congratulations to Shirley and Joshua!

A lot of bright colors for her bouquet, their cake, their reception table, his pink tie and her shoes! Have you seen her stunning shoes? They matched her wedding rose and plumeria bouquet! Different shades of pink roses and beautiful bright yellow plumerias! She did change to some simpler white sandals but her wedding shoes were a hit! ( You can now find them pinnned onto Pinterest!)

They had their ceremony at The Merriman’s Restaurant oceanfront green lawn and they escape a little while from their guests to go to Kapalua Beach for their gorgeous sunset portaits!

You will notice that Shirley’s dress had two ways: long and elegant for the ceremony and shorter for the reception and beach sunset shoot!

Their little boy was such a joy and his cute bright eyes were simply the cutest ever!

Enjoy these images and thank you for choosing me to capture your special moments!  Tad
