Who is Tad Craig Photography

Thank you so much for stopping by. I’m Tad an explorer of Beauty, Light & Love celebrating 21 years as a pro romance photographer here in magnificent Maui Hawaii. Yes, it’s true! I’m one of those people who came here for a vacation & never left & that was more than 25 years ago! The one thing that had eluded me for years & years was finding my love. Well that changed when I met Cory Michelle and in 2018 I pulled off a surprise proposal at The Art Institute in Chicago in front of one of her very favorite Picasso’s, & our families! (I actually thought it was her favorite & she later corrected me telling me it was “One of her favorites”!) She said “YES”!

We then married in October 2019 in what was definitely the VERY BEST DAY OF MY LIFE! We married at this amazing upcountry venue called the Hui No Eau. We had a formal gala with all the guys in tux’s & the ladies looking like fashionistas in burgundy dresses all in a great big tent to hold all 75 of us. Throughout the evening you could actually FEEL THE LOVE! It was amazing!   .

Maui Wedding Photography EXTRAORDINAIRE

What is “Maui Wedding Photographer Extraordinaire”? To me using the FIVE STAR EXPERIENCE I learned working in the luxury hotels  has been good to me. Delivering not only the quality experience that is expected, but being early, with great communication, sharply dressed, 100% prepared and constantly vigilant for poignant moments. In addition getting creative on the fly  and looking “outside the box” make me a Maui Wedding Photographer Extraordinaire!

Most important to me is making your wedding day amazing in every way possible! That means from our very first communications all the way to final delivery of images, I want you to have a great experience! Using my years of expertise to help make the day flow as easily as possible considering the timing of the event & in good communication with the other vendors and sunset . On the day of the event I LOVE to observe from a distance finding those important moments or helping to direct if needed. It’s my years of dedication to my craft, expertise & easy going nature that make it second nature for me.  Coming to each shoot well dressed ,totally prepared & ready to shoot with tons of energy & vigor, It is all of these components that ultimately make the experience as great as the quality of the imagery and all backed up by great service!

Signature Style

I love creating the EPIC BIG PICTURE LANDSCAPES with my clients as they have traveled all the way to Hawaii for these moments. In addition though my mission is searching for those little moments in time that only a photograph can capture!  Those moments that truly reflect the love & connection that two people feel. True Romance! My style is creating; bold, vibrant, crisp & clean imagery that pops with color & has that timeless quality. Creating imagery with a dab of fashion & an abundance of emotion! I search constantly for those candid natural moments by being ready & easily connecting with my clients. With a warm, friendly & yet professional approach, all the while keeping you relaxed & at ease! Using a variety of creative techniques refined from years of experience & top of the line gear! Sometimes relying on natural lighting & other times using off camera lighting to enhance the scene & situation. Love getting creative & making imagery that is meaningful & stunning & personal! Let’s get creative!

Alex Lianne and I can’t thank Tad Craig enough for photographing our wedding at the Hyatt Regency in Maui! He truly did a remarkable job. Last summer, my (now) wife, Alex Lianne and I debated for weeks whether to get a professional photographer or fly in a semi-professional friend to shoot our destination wedding in Maui.  We quickly discovered that he checked all the boxes that we were looking for. What further impressed me was when we contacted him, he was quick to schedule a meeting to get a feel for what we were looking for, which turned into a Facetime call.  On the day of the wedding, Tad really did a great job in maximizing the time we had with him while keeping everyone calm, comfortable, and focused. Thank you Tad for making this special day extra memorable

He was so professional, very personable, and made us feel comfortable in front of the camera. In addition to that, we got all the shots we wanted and more!

Don’t look any further if you’re trying to find the perfect photographer for your wedding cause he is it!

LINDSAY & XAVIER

Tad was our photographer for our special day! He was recommended by our friends in San Jose, CA when we told them we were getting married in Maui. They too got married and Maui and had Tad as their photographer. I am so glad he was recommended to us because he was so nice and professional! He made me feel at ease and did such a great job capturing our special moments throughout the day. My absolute favorite pictures from Tad are his portraits with the beautiful scenery! If it wasn’t for my husband getting sick from his sun burn, we would have got into our get ups again after the wedding to take more picture on the beach and his famous picture on the rocks with beautiful sunsets! Those picture of his are breath taking and speak to me and give me all the feels! All in all, Tad and his assistant Marie Claude were great, and we would highly recommend them. Also, the process of booking Tad and his online payment system made things so much easier! Thanks Tad! Mr. and Mrs. Epperson
