About Tad Craig
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. A lover of sports since childhood, Tad is an avid skier, windsurfer, surfer, rock climber and biker. It was his enthusiasm for these pursuits that eventually brought him to the Island of Maui in 1993. 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.
