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.

Jay weeps when he sees his Gorgeous Bride for the First Time @ Four Seasons Maui

So we had planned on having a “First Look” of Jay seeing his bride for the first time before the wedding.
WOW, was that ever a special moment as he turned & finally saw his Gorgeous Bride in her INCREDIBLE dress! He immediately began to cry & Janelle, seeing this, wrapped her loving arms around him. They both enjoyed this most special moment together.
The Wedding of course was stunning as Karen from The Four Seasons Resort Maui had taken care of all the details.
With the Judge signing the license it was oficial! “Mr & Mrs. Jay Clavio”!
They were constantly laughing with their family and a few of their most important friends & that makes for Great Pictures! The beautiful background of Wailea Beach & Superb sunset made for perfect close to the day!

Thank you so much for making me a part of your special day & CONGRATULATIONS to Jenelle and Jay!

Krista & Dieter’s Gorgeous Four Seasons Maui Wedding!

Upon ariving @ The Gorgeous Four Season Resort & Spa, I was welcomed by an excited and a little nervous bride.
Coming from Canada, Krista & Dieter were enjoying every moment of their beaufitul wedding day with their families & some of their closest friends. Blue skies & light trade winds made for a perfect backdrop to say their vows to each other!
Tino Rosete performed a beautiful ceremony! Of course The Four Seasons Resort & Spa provided an exceptional location with gorgeous views. Later on, Dieter took his new wife hand & walked on Wailea Beach laughing & soaking in the beauty of the moment! They were treated to a wonderful Maui Sunset that evening.
Congratulations to them & their new life together.

Enjoy the Pictures!
Many Mahalos Tad

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!
