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 and Peter Westin dream wedding on Maui

Beautiful wedding in paradise – August 23, 2013

Lucy and Peter came all the way from Australia to celebrate their love! They picked the great Westin Maui Resort and Spa for their wedding location, specially on the oceanfront lawn overlooking at the beautiful Ka’anapali Beach in Lahaina.

All their guests flew, as well from Australia, except Lucy’s best friend that came directly from San Francisco, California, specially for her event. This made Lucy so happy to have her best friend by her side!

This wedding was beautiful full of laughter! Peter and his tree brothers were having the best time! They all look so alike! Impossible not to know that they are brothers!

The weather was perfect, making the color in all photographs gorgeous! The ceremony with the harp music was so pretty and Lucy’s yellow plumeria bouquet was “magnifique”! They will all remember this special day forever.

As special thank you to Sarah Snyder, their wedding coordinator at The Westin Maui and Fred Torres , their officiant for their wedding ceremony. Their beautiful flowers were designed by Asa Flowers.

Enjoy this beautiful sneak peek of their memorable day!

Our most recent favorites moments at The Westin Maui Resort & Spa

Aloha Friday everyone!
I was just looking at some of my very favorite wedding images that I took recently at The Westin Maui Hotel Resort & Spa and I decided to share a few..Enjoy

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

Angela & Darryl- After being together for 10 years they finally Marry!!

So 2-27-10 there was a major tsunami evacuation here in the Hawaiian Islands. Both Angela & Darryl had no idea early in the day if their wedding was even going to take place. Because of the warning I had to grab EVERY THING important for my business & load it in my car & go to higher ground. I waited till 1:30 in the afternoon before going down to my office. Upon recieving the “All Clear”, I unpacked & prepared for my wedding & was on location by 4:45pm. It was quite an ordeal but it all worked out well.

After dealing with the tsunami evacuation , they were finally able to say “I DO!” These two were having so much fun on their wedding day. Always laughing & smiling it was easy creating images showing the joy & love they have for each other. Enjoy!!!
