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.

Lucy & Sy’s Fantastic Hyatt Resort Maui Wedding!

Upon arrival at The Beautiful Hyatt Regency on Kaanapali Beach, I was greeted to a very radiant & excited bride.
The weather was perfect & her wedding venue covered in gorgeous purple flowers. Her fiance, Sy, was cool, quiet & relaxed as she finally walked up the isle. Their wedding was short, beautiful & very moving. They both had written their own vows & Sy’s were especially meaningful!
The backdrop of the Lanai & the pacific ocean was stunning! I wish Lucy & Sy the very best as they enjoy their new life together.
Enjoy the pics! Aloha

Finally after years & years, Nancy & Keith Marry!

OMG! Nancy & Keith have such an awesome story!
Having dated for a VERY long time, Keith has been deployed in Iraq for 4 tours & Afghanistan for 2 tours.
Keeping the faith that her fiance would remain safe after all that time in harms way, they retreated to Maui at The Westin Resort & Spa to finally say their “I Do’s” to one another.
Throughout the evening, passerby’s kept wishing them “Congratulations”.
When we walked through the pool bar area, everyone there started clapping! I got “chicken skin” from the reception they received. Very Cool!
Like all these people, I also want to say: “Congratulations & thank you so much for your service to this country!”
It was truly an honor being a part of it! Enjoy the pictures! Tad

Holly & Matt’s Sweet Kaanapali Wedding!

Holly imediately had me cracking up when she put on her bright pink cowboy hat. Her radiant smile & excitement for the joyous day was written all over her face! With their closest family & friends by their sides, they spoke from their heart & started their new lives as a couple on Maui’s beautiful west shore of Kaanapali. The Hyatt Regency made for a spectacular back drop & of course the sunset did not disappoint. Actually I can not recall a more beautiful backdrop for a first dance in all the years shooting weddings. Congratualtions to Holly & Matt & thank you for letting me be a part of your special day!

Kira & Dean ‘s International Maui Wedding

Their wedding was an international affair with 42 friends & family coming from all over the world. They met in Sydney, Australia where Dean is from & Kira being from the U.S., Maui wedding was the easy choice. Kira being a former wedding gown model; & Dean obviously comfortable being him self in front of the camera, I had the easy job of just capturing beautiful moments. Truly a great wedding! Enjoy the pics!
