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.

Jim & Carrie’s Beautiful Maui White Rock Beach Wedding!

November 15, 2012 - 7:05 AM Carrie & Jim Brown - Our New Found Friend~ We met a friend just days before our special day. He was genuine, excited, and inspired to be a part of our day. His enthusiasm and equanimity gave relief to us both that we had invited a new friend into our life and to share our day that we will never forget. We wanted to let everyone know that if you're getting married, celebrating a special time, or cherishing unforgettable moments with the ones you love, you need to look no further than Tad Craig. He will capture all of your moments that you will treasure forever. Tad's vision and excitement for us made us feel we knew we had met the right person to bring our moment to canvas. The photos are unbelievable Tad! You captured our tears, our laughter, and our excitement! Thank you so much. You are our friend for life. Carrie & Jim

A Gannon’s Affair in Wailea.

Rebecca tried to cancel her first date with Geoff because she was too nervous (and the season finale of The Bachelor was airing). She told him she was too busy and tired but he convinced her they would just meet briefly since it was a work night for both of them. They made it home around 3:00 am after talking on a bench by a lake all night. Geoff eventually proposed on that same bench a little over a year later and the rest is history!
Just two years later, they said their “I Do’s” to each other at the stunning Gannon’s Restaurant overlooking the Pacific Ocean! With their family & a few closest friends, they united as ONE and had blast along the way!

My very best to Rebecca & Geoff. Have a Fantastic life together! Tad

Yuliya & Kevin Marry at Kapalua Bay

Yuliya & Kevin had such a sweet little ceremony with just two friends & her parents in attendance. The bride was looking positively stunning with a GIANT smile across her face the entire evening. With Kapalua Bay as the back drop they said their “I Do’s” & then asked to go to the rocks in front of Merrimans’s Restaurant. With her stilettos on she easily jumped from rock to rock enjoying the scenery & married life. Very fun couple to photograph as their joy was written all over their faces. Enjoy the pictures!

February 9, 2012 - 1:11 PM carolee higashino - A sweet day in Kapalua! Thank you for sharing the images Tad! Great photos!

Andrea & Scott’s Hawaiian Wedding

Being from Calgary,Canada; Andrea & Scott wanted a beautiful tropical wedding. Merriman’s Restaurant, sitting on beautiful Kapalua Bay did not disappoint them!
With the sun shining brightly & the brillant colors sparkling, they said their “I Do’s” to each other & immediately started the celebrations. With all of their guests coming from Calgary as well the party was on!!! My very favorite shots are the last two posted to the blog.
I love the candidness of that moment as they walk towards me laughing with each other. Congratulations to the two of them.
I wish them the very best.
A Hui Ho. Tad
