Stephanie & Raymond both had the biggest smiles on their faces as they made it official. Expecting a little one, it was so sweet when he dropped to a knee to kiss her belly. They both were exuding joy as they celebrated their Maui elopement driving off in their 56 Speedster. Congrats to them

Thanks to Diana George for her words during the ceremony and Kristine Snyder for her beautiful harp accompaniment!


Cindy & Jeremy’s Return to Maui

Cindy & Jeremy’s Return to Maui

So where do I start??? I guess I have to start at Cindy and Jeremy’s sensational wedding a few years ago at Makena Cove. Cindy was wearing a beautiful beaded wedding dress and her little bump was present for all to see. I was fascinated when I was able to meet the little guy who is now so precious. Cindy has a great sense of humor and right from the VERY first time I met them, I was cracking up! Cindy is very funny and of course, that makes for very interesting photos! At their wedding, five years ago, Cindy was 6 months pregnant. We noticed the “Bump” sign in the street and it was a natural picture. They both had such amazing chemistry and the location at Makena Cove was absolutely gorgeous that day!
Now almost exactly five years later they returned with two beautiful kids in tow! Starting out where we had taken the “Bump” picture five years ago, we had cute little Devon, their daughter, holding the canvas of her dad, pointing at her in Mom’s belly! Seriously cute isn’t it?
It was so good to see them again and meet their little ones, they were just a joy to photograph. They both showed their own personality and, of course, Cindy’s amusing nature.

The Colafrancesco Family get together in Maui

This loving family has had a long winter in Colorado and had to escape to Maui to unwind in the tropics. Staying in Wailea at The Tropical Maui Villas they just had a short walk to Wailea Beach for their family photo session.

The evening was virtually perfect with clouds obscuring the sun making for soft lighting which makes for great lighting. As I looked around Wailea Beach I noticed NOT a single person on the Four Seasons Resort & Spa side of the beach and ONLY 8 people on the Grand Wailea Resort side of the beach.

Having Wailea Beach with no people on it is amazing and quite rare. We took full advantage of it! It is just like having your  private beach for your family portraits!

The whole family walked down this empty beach enjoying their “togetherness”. The kids were all smiles and so were the grand parents. As the sun dipped below Lanai, the sunset turned SPECTACULAR! Enjoy the pictures and thank you for including Tad Craig Photography in your great Maui Vacations.

Much Mahalos,
