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.

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!

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

Carla & Chad’s Beautiful wedding on Kapalua Beach

This particular day the weather was a little “iffy” as the rain would come & go. One moment it was raining & the very next moment it was sunny. Both Carla & Chad had great attitudes though with BIG smiles the entire time. Their reception was at Merrimans Kapalua Restaurant over looking the bay. Enjoy!!!
