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

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!

January 10, 2011 - 10:42 AM Tei Byers - Simply breath taking...They are a beautiful couple and the photography work was outstanding!
