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.

Erica & Jon’s Gorgeous International Maui Wedding!

Location, location location!

You know how you always hear that phrase? Well from the very first moment upon my arrival at The Gorgeous, Ocean Front Estate on Maui’s west side, I was amazed with its beauty. With the sound of the waves breaking almost at your feet & the Rich Color your eyes are feasting on, you are left stopped in your tracks. Of course both the Bride & groom were loving it as well. Jon’s family had just flown in from France & they to were soaking in the beauty of the day! Tori Rogers of Hawaiian Weddings had taken care of all the details with Dellables Flowers making their flowers magical! Dennis Derego took care of the ministry duties & finally after 7 years it was done & they were married. Enjoy the pictures & the Beauty of Maui.

Congrats to Erica & Jon & Many Mahalos for making me a part of your gorgeous day! Tad

Hannah & Tim’s ~ Their Perfect Wedding at Olowalu Plantation House

Upon arrival @ The Gorgeous Olowalu Plantation House, we were treated to a stunning venue put together by White Orchid Wedding.
The “rustic look” white flowers arrangements were very beautiful on all the tables ~ specially all the details on the vases!!! They had a hint of light pink and so many little details that were to die for!!! The arches, the wedding dress, the bridemaids dress, the dress hanger ( marked “bride” in metal) the sparkle shoes, her something blue, the groom colored socks, the delicious cake, the pink table clothes, the bouquets and the two little flower girls with their crowns… everything was perfect. Really!
They also had that BLUE~BLUE sky that we all love so much because it makes the prettiest background on all photos!
With all of Hannah’s bridesmaids hovering around making sure no details were overlooked, Hannah just looked radiant!
Hannah’s parents walked her down the aisle with tears in their eyes. It was very touching! Of course the little flower girls had to steal the show for a while, being “EXTRA CUTE” in front of all the guests.
Tim had a traditional breaking of the glass & sweet kiss to seal the deal. Very beautiful ceremony I must say! Maui again delivered a beautiful sunset! I especially enjoyed the fire show put on by Manutea Nui E. Wow! Was it ever AMAZING!
Congratulations to Hannah & Tim!
Enjoy the pictures & thank you much for letting me a part of your special day!

Kristy & Hugo’s Beautiful Paradise Point Wedding

My first meeting with Kristy & Hugo was late last fall. They were both delighted in planning their life together and I knew their wedding was going to be fun to photograph.
Fast forward ten months & all that planning was finally coming to fruition! They are both HUGE Charger fans. Kristy not only had the Charger garter, but also a Charger Groom cake made for her husband. With incredibly excited friends & family by their sides, they married & then turned up the volume!
The location on Maui’s Westside was absolutely perfect, ending with a stunning sunset.
After some well said toasts, they danced & danced & danced. I mean even Hugo’s grandmother was “ripping up” the dance floor. Looking through the pictures you will see 2 “Planking” pictures. In all the years I had never taken one & suddedly its all the rage. Too fun!
Enjoy the pictures & a BIG congrats to Kristy & Hugo!
A Hui Ho!!!
