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.

Kaci & Brad’s Wedding at The Fairmont Kea Lani Maui was a “stunner”!

Wedding Romance at The Fairmont Kea Lani Maui on August 1st, 2013

The wedding of Kaci & Brad was gorgeous. Upon my arrival I met Kaci’s Mom who was glowing from ear to ear & super excited. She & her bridesmaids started it out right with shots of cinnamon whiskey.
In another room Brad was also doing shots with his groomsman. Looking dapper in a nice suit, he headed out to the “First Look” of his Gorgeous & Glowing bride. Her dress was actually the very dress her mom had worn at her wedding some 30 years before. Having had it redesigned some for this occasion she looked FABULOUS! The location for the wedding was so beautiful with very elegant flowers perfectly placed by Leah Robb.
The ceremony was quick. After lots of pictures with family & the bridal party we headed to the beach for an extra gorgeous sunset. Brad picked her up & spun her with ease.
Was so fun witnessing their love for each other. Later at the reception they continued with keeping things traditional. The cake topper on the small cake was Brad’s parents cake topper at their wedding many, many years ago. Then Kaci & Brad drank from the very flute that Kaci’s parents had drank from at their wedding. With lots of famous faces in attendance it was an evening to remember. It came to a close with Kaci & Her bridesmaids dancing a special Hula dance that they had all learned. Was a Great Night!!!! Congrats to Kaci & Brad! Aloha

Trisha & Eryn marry on the beautiful Polo Beach in Wailea

Getting married in front of the beautiful ocean on one side and The Fairmont Kea Lani Maui Hotel on the other side is just MAGiC! This wedding was elegant, simple, touching and on the beach with their close family and friends! This couple were so in love, you can see it thru the pictures! Thank you for letting me capture those moments! ALOHA!

Sarah & Yan just got Mauied!

Everything was beautiful and “Pretty in Pink”! The Keawalai Church was decorated to the “nines” and gorgeous. The pink roses stood, stunning contrast to the red alter behind Yan. Yan patiently waited at the alter for his bride and her fabulous dress! Later on after doing lots of pictures at the church we moved on to Gannon’s for their reception. The theme at the reception was also pink…with pink in just about “everywhere”! Sarah came to me asking if i could get a couple fashion oriented shots in her “second” dress…of course, i told her, when she made her second entry with her new dress was amazed! Well done, Congrats to the both of you!
