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.

Sarah & Yan just got Mauied!

Everything was beautiful and “Pretty in Pink”! The Keawalai Church was decorated to the “nines” and gorgeous. The pink roses stood, stunning contrast to the red alter behind Yan. Yan patiently waited at the alter for his bride and her fabulous dress! Later on after doing lots of pictures at the church we moved on to Gannon’s for their reception. The theme at the reception was also pink…with pink in just about “everywhere”! Sarah came to me asking if i could get a couple fashion oriented shots in her “second” dress…of course, i told her, when she made her second entry with her new dress was amazed! Well done, Congrats to the both of you!

Alyssa & Tait’s Amazing Day

Alyssa & Tait interviewed me 2 years ago to cover their wedding. Due to scheduling conflicts, they had to change their original date. Their big day finally came though & was quite amazing! The Maria Lanakila Church in downtown Lahaina is perhaps one of the most beautiful churches in Maui. Their service was about an hour total & after tying the knot, we headed to Olowalu Plantation House for their reception. Olowalu was gorgeous that evening & fun was had by all. Congratulations to Alyssa & Tait!!! Mahalo for letting me be part of your special day!!!

Sheila & Chris ……….Finally get Married!

These guys were fantastic! From California & together for eight years. They finally were able to have the wedding of their dreams. Other then the wind blowing 20 mph, it was just that. Their reception was just 50 feet from the waters edge & with all their family & friends present they were gifted with another spectaclar sunset! Enjoy the pics!

Camrien & Eric (Retie) the knot after 10 years of Marriage

Both Camrien & Eric were both so excited to have a “Real” wedding. Many years before they had had a wedding but without familiy & important friends. Now with everyone by there side they had a beautiful ceremony at The Keawalai Church in Makena. Afterwards we made our way to the brand new “DUKES” Restaurant in Kaanapali for the reception. I had a great time working with them & that adorable little girl. Enjoy!!!
