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.

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!!!

A Dream Wedding at Paradise Point

Laura & Chris had been working with Vicky of Dolphin Dream Weddings for quite along time to put together a beautiful wedding for them. The day of their wedding was just that. BEAUTIFUL! With little clouds rolling through every few minutes, the light was constantly changing creating the perfect backdrop for Laura & Chris to say their nuptials.
Having connected with them right away, it was a day filled with candid moments with just about everyone there…either laughing or crying.
Especially Laura’s sister (in a green dress) who could not hold back the tears of joy that came over her throughout the evening. Their close friend became officially authorized by the State of Hawaii just to marry them. Truly an amazing wedding & amazing couple & I wish them the very, very best. Tad

Christy & Jon’s BIG Happy Family

Both Christy & Jon were very excited to finally join their families into “ONE”. Their kids were having a great time playing in front of the camera & definately were total “hams” but I enjoyed it. Congratualtions to Christy & Jon and your big family. Enjoy the pictures!

Stacy & Zach have the beach to themselves on their wedding day!
