Beautiful Couple & Wedding Details

We looked at several photographer’s albums, and Tad seemed like an obvious choice. His pictures just seemed a bit better quality overall – better light. better color, better editing, better poses, better backgrounds. His pricing might be a bit higher than some competitors, but for the best photographer on the island, his work is a great bargain. Easy to work with, very professional, good communication, easy online pic selection. Can’t go wrong using Tad Craig’s talents.

John and I are from Arizona and when we started planning our wedding we got a little nervous because we were doing everything over the phone and not in person, so of course I was nervous about our vendors. Looking at Tad’s work on his website did put me at ease but then finally meeting him and watching him work was another thing. We all had so much fun, he’s very passionate about his work and the pictures turned out AMAZING!! We are very happy and so glad we got the chance to work with Tad. We Highly recommend him!!!

We got married last August in Maui and had the wonderful pleasure of having Tad be our photographer. He was wonderful! He took beautiful pictures that captured all the love and beautiful scenery of our special day. He was professional but also very personable. He knows his stuff and will keep you laughing! He had such great energy and he helped to ease any anxiety that I was feeling that day! I would definitely recommend him and his company to everyone!!


07-27-16 Tyler & Bill said…

Tad was the most amazing photographer! He is kind, professional, and artistic! He captures tiny fleeting moments unseen by most but ones that will be forever treasured. He really worked with us to give us exactly what we wanted while effortlessly guiding us toward the right lighting, feeling, and emotion for the “perfect shot”. We feel fortunate to have had him with us on our special day. We highly recommend him for any photography needs. Thank you Tad, you made our wedding ceremony Magical!!!


05-24-16 Hannah & Jonathon said…

TAD is amazing. You will not regret choosing him. He knows the island super well and can take you to 5-6 different locations in 2 hours so your wedding book will look like you took pictures for weeks.

TAD is also very skilled. I’ve worked with many photographers and they are not all equal. He can get “the perfect shot” very quickly and enhance it a great Del during post. He also works quickly. An hour with Tad is like 2 hours with any other photographer. So you won’t be exhausted and will have more time to enjoy your day

You can’t go back and get the shot you want later. This is an important day. You will not be disappointed.

I faught him a lot in the beginning trying to tell him what I wanted. I’m a bit of a control freak. In the end I trusted him and went with all his ideas and locations and I am supremely glad I did. It ended up much better than what I wanted.

Thank you TAD. YOU ROCKED IT.

JONATHAN


Gorgeous wedding couple looking into each others eyes with great maui sunset behind them

08-04-16 Erin & Clyde said…

I couldn’t have asked for a better experience with Tad! Having a destination wedding is definitely something I’d recommend but there has to be an element of trusting what you see online because odds are you can’t meet anyone in person/fully test out who/what you are going to use. Tad has surpassed my expectations one hundred fold! From the moment he came into where I was getting ready, he was completely professional and personable. We were running behind (no shocker there) but he kept relaxed even though he needed us to get going. So far I have only seen teasers of the pics that he has taken, but I can remember when he took most of them because I could see the effort and excitement he put into each shot. He truly captures moments and helps to feel natural instead of uptight planned poses (even the uptight planned poses that you need to take turn out fabulous). He has an incredible eye for photography and details and literally has taken the best photos I have ever seen. I can’t say enough positive things about Tad! I wish he was in Florida so he could capture every event in my life! I guess I will just have to keep going back to Hawaii for every milestone in my life. If you find yourself in Hawaii, look up Tad. He is worth EVERY penny. (actually he should charge more)


05-19-16 Bonnie & Mike Sullivan said…

Tad Craig is not only a skilled, passionate photographer but also a kind and thoughtful person to work with! We had planned a private, sunset ceremony on the beach on May 19. Tad came prepared with a myriad of photo equipment to capture our special evening as well as a lively personality to make every aspect enjoyable. He had planned for the approaching storm and caught a few minutes of the sun rays breaking through the clouds. Thankfully, the storm went around us and Tad used the dark sky as a backdrop for picturesque beach photos. In addition, he expertly shot breathtaking sunset photos in the moments following the storm. The entire experience with Tad has been incredible and beyond our expectations. His photos were so impressive that we upgraded to purchasing all of them!
Words to describe Tad Craig Photography: stunning, skillful, accommodating, friendly, fun.

Tad Craig was such a pleasure to work with. I felt instantly comfortable with him and he made posing for pictures easy, because of his professional eye for beauty. Our pictures came out so beautiful that my husband and I can relive the entire day whenever we look at the slideshow. My husband and I are a silly couple and he embraced that, but also captured the serious and beautiful side of us and our day as well. We got every shot that I specified that I wanted and more! Thanks to Tad for being a part of our wedding experience! I would recommend him 100%.



Great Maui Wedding Photography

02-07-16 Julie & Theo said…

I cant say enough great things about Tad. He has an infectious smile and amazing personality that makes taking pictures FUN & EASY! I feel like picture sessions can be awkward and posed, but he has this talent for getting to know you and keeping you laughing and capturing candid moments along the way hat make for lifetime memories and priceless pictures!


02-05-16 Cynthia & Todd said…

My little wedding on a beach in Maui was perfect… in lots of ways… but having Tad as our photographer was hands down the coolest and best planning decision I made. It is impossible to sit here and write in words how pleased I am with not only the images he captured, but also his focused determination and genuine enthusiasm. My husband and I had a blast… we got married on a beautiful beach, climbed on rocks, made fun of each other and soaked in every second of our special day in Maui, Tad orchestrated and captured every second of it beautifully!! If I can give any advice (other than just book Tad Craig) it would be to book him for just a little bit longer than you think you need, I promise that you will be thankful that you did. He is so incredibly creative, and he somehow finds a way to turn every single minute into an incredible new idea or photo location. Having Tad as out photographer was without a doubt the best wedding planning decision I made. My husband and I will smile at these pictures for the rest of our lives 🙂

Tad was amazing to work with for our wedding. He is friendly, funny, outgoing, and incredibly creative. He showed us a few of the shots he was able to capture and we loved them. He has a unique perspective and can capture the very best moments of your wedding. For the talent and service he offers, we felt his prices were very reasonable. He came highly recommended by a friend who used him and we built our wedding package around being able to use him. Best decision we made!


 

10-16-15 Krystal said…

From start to finish, even being all the way in California, Tad it was extremely friendly and helpful in planning the process. My husband and I both felt comfortable and that made our experience so much more enjoyable! Our pictures came out absolutely breathtaking, and the service from the entire process was smooth. Even down to the small detail of delivery of our pictures on a custom wooden USB drive in its owner adorable box. I would recommend Tad’s service to anyone looking to have pictures done in Maui.


09-28-15 Lisa & Jeff said…

My husband and I decided to get married at The Westin Ka’anapali in Maui without seeing the property. We had already done some research on photographers and found Tad on our own and were so happy to know that he was a preferred vendor with The Westin and we were able to select his as our photographer. Tad had great knowledge of all the sweet spots for pictures around the property and hustled to get the best shots before we lost daylight. I was blown away to see that he captured my new husbands face, as well as me walking down the aisle, as well as a FULL shot of all my guest with me walking down the aisle. I didn’t think that one photographer would be able to capture it all and HE DID. Tad had the best personality that meshed with ours to a “T”. He also posted some pictures almost immediately after the wedding on social media that looked like they were out of a magazine! My husband and I already contacted Tad to take our photos when we return to Maui for our year anniversary. I highly recommend him and if you are on the fence – just find his Instagram (Tad Craig Photography) and take a look. His work speaks for itself! Mahalo Tad.

07-16-15 Bevin & Tre said…

My husband and I discovered Tad while doing some research for our wedding planning trip to Maui in July 2015. Wedding pictures were something very important to both my husband and I, being that it is on of the few things you keep from your wedding. There for we had allotted a decent portion of our wedding budget to photography. I was first blown away by the pictures I saw on Tad’s website. But I set up a meeting to make sure he would be the right person to work with us on our wedding day. After meeting Tad we were so happy to find out that he is as awesome as his pictures! Tad was able to take what we were looking for (and not looking for) in wedding pictures and expand on it making them even better. We were super impressed with his ability to quickly organize everyone and get the “required” pictures taken so we could move along to the fun pictures. We had so much fun taking our wedding pictures. Tad was so creative and knew all the great spots to shoot for what are in our opinion the best wedding pictures of any we have ever seen! On top of everything else Tad was fun to work with. He has so much energy and seemed to enjoy taking pictures and have as much fun as we did! He was also very easy to get in contact with, which was great because we had a 6 hour time difference to deal with! A side note we were lucky enough to do a honeymoon shoot with Tad also (as part of our package). It was super fun to go to a completely different area of the island and do some completely different pictures and settings than we had for our wedding. I would highly recommend adding this on to your photo package if it is not included! If I didn’t mention we absolutely LOVE our pictures, they are beyond amazing! I can not recommend Tad highly enough, if you want the best pictures you can find and an awesome photographer you can’t go wrong with Tad Craig Photography! We look forward to working with him in the future!

Tad just shot our wedding at Merriman’s in Kapalua, and he did a phenomenal job! He was so fun to work with and had great, fun ideas to try! My parents had worked with him a few years ago for their 25th anniversary, and they also had a great experience which is why we decided to book him for our wedding. We have seen a preview of some of the pictures, and they are drop dead gorgeous! We really can’t wait to see the rest of them! We strongly recommend Tad to anyone looking for a wedding photographer who is fun, personable and produces beautiful, top notch work!

My husband and I had a small wedding at the Westin in Maui on 8/26/14. Pictures and great photography were really important to us, as we traveled hundreds of miles from Chicago for our special day. I was really nervous the morning of our wedding, worrying about every detail. When Tad showed up, his energy was extremely addictive and you can sense his passion for photography from miles away. All my worries quickly vanished the minute he started doing his magic. You can tell that he really loves his job and he was very knowledgeable. We are really pleased with our decision to choose Tad! We cannot wait to see the rest of our photos.

Tad and Marie-Claude were absolutely fabulous:-) The photos are all beautiful!! They managed to get great photos of every single part of our celebration and special day. They were tremendously helpful from the wedding day, actually, before the wedding day, until long after:-) They were especially supportive in assisting us with the selection process for our wedding album:-) On our wedding day, they were so very helpful and knowledgeable and they took so many wonderful photos for us. We just thought Tad Craig Photography was the best and would highly recommend them to any couple planning their big day:-)!

Wedding at Makena Cove Jessica & Martin 03-28-13 Tad was a true blessing! We just celebrated our wedding on the gorgeous island of Maui, HI. 03/28/2013. Tad was an instant hit with my husband and I while talking on the phone with him, about what we envisioned for our wedding, as well as a second photo shoot the following day out along the Hana Hwy, with the scenic views and waterfalls. He was very helpful with ideas and suggestions to make things run easily and smooth and turn out how we hoped! He was very considerate and workable to whatever our wants were! We spoke with him numerous times before arriving on the island, and once we were there he took time out to meet and talk with us in person about more details for the big day! He has a great energy and enthusiasm about him! He captured the beauty of Makena Cove but mostly the beauty and moments we will always remember of our bi…g day! The unbelievable shots he got on our second shoot along the Hana Hwy. are just that, unbelievable! He went above and beyond, and absolutely exceeded all our expectations! He has an amazing eye and talent in photography! He has very good quality equipment, and he utilizes every bit of it to maximize the quality of your photographs! I suggest him for ANY of your photography needs! If I lived on Maui I would have Tad do all of our family photography! If you are looking into lots of different photographers, please be sure to give Tad your time and consideration! Look at his photos, but make sure you give him a call and talk to him about your ideas. I guarantee after talking with him, he will be at the top of your list and that you will find it difficult to find another photographer that will top what he will bring to your experience and to your photographs! — Jessica

Wedding at Olowalu Plantation House in Lahaina Vanessa & Ricardo 2-28-12 Future brides, look no further for a photographer, Tad is your guy! _ Planning my wedding all the way from Italy was very stressful. I reviewed several other photographer websites and thankfully came across Tad’s. It was helpful to see my wedding location, the Olowalu Plantation House, in his portfolio. I reviewed his other work and that’s what convinced me. Also, I saw that several of his clients returned to him for other events-very reassuring. For us, he was very professional and performed his work in a way that didn’t interrupt the wedding festivities. He was also patient and kind with our non-English speaking guests. The finish product, our album, is how we say here in Italia, ” perfetto”! I plan to use him again for our next Hawaiian vacation! Rest assured that by choosing Tad, your wedding memories will be in the best hands. My only negative is that I couldn’t afford to keep him longer! I paid the hotel stay for all my guests. Cut your costs in other areas and spend more on your time with this photographer, it’s worth it! Graziemille Tad!

Wedding at Sugarman’s Estate in Makena with the coordination of Bernadette Freitas from White Orchid Wedding Linda & Jason Ephraim 2-24-12 Tad photographed our wedding at the Sugarman’s Estate in February.

Our family and friends have raved about our photos, and he did such an amazing job at capturing the wedding, including some really gorgeous artistic shots. We highly recommend Tad!

Thank you so much for the great work and the time you took to make our wedding day so memorable! Your customer service was amazing and always so helpful and personal! I really enjoyed working with you and Marie-Claude. I will definitely recommend you guys to anyone who is getting married in Maui…again thanks so much and I hope to someday come back to Maui! Mahalo!


8-6-11 Kristi & Hugo Carbajal said…

Wedding at Paradise Point in Kapalua with coordination of Vickie Jackson from Dolphin Dream Weddings Kristi & Hugo Carbajal 8-6-11 Tad was absolutely wonderful! He exceeded our expectations on every front. He was warm, kind, prompt, professional and brought out the best of everyone in every shot. He is an incredibly talented photographer with a creative eye. We just finished working on our album (which he was always available for questions) and literally struggled picking out which pictures to use because they were all so great. Everyone at our wedding commented on how professional and nice he was and he got more shots by himself than some of my girlfriend’s photographers for their wedding having had a whole team. Tad was so great throughout the whole process and I recommend him without any reservation. If you are getting married on Maui, there is no better photographer than TAD CRAIG!
