Who are we: 

I am Tracy Tegarden owner-Main photographer of  Trade Winds Photography. I have worked hard to make my art form  synonymous with the finest in wedding and portrait photography since its inception in 1998. Having pursued my interest in photography from High school, I studied and apprenticed for several years perfecting my art before turning pro. My work is a constant evolution as my inspirations come from a variety of sources,but more importantly from every client I photograph. My work has been viewed in numerous publications, including the cover of the Maui Wedding Planner twice.

I strive for consistent professionalism.  Recognized among my peers, several organizations have elected me to office. I am currently the president of Maui Professional Photographers and the Maui Wedding and Event Professionals and previously  spent several years as an elected official of the Maui Wedding Association. I am an active member of Professional Photographers of America and for several years now the head of the print judge committee for Maui's annual fair.I am dedicated to providing quality professional photography on Maui and the entire Hawaiian islands. In 2009, 2010 and again in 2020, Trade Winds Photography was awarded " The Best in Photography" by the U.S. Commerce Association.

My love of the outdoors first brought me to Maui in the early 1980's. I usually like to start my day by enjoying Maui's great weather. You will find me out paddling canoes, riding my bike, catching a wave, or just out having fun enjoying coffee talking with wonderful folks visiting Maui. Back in the office I enjoy being creative and creating beautiful images for my clients. I also love the movies. On the job I'll often use my unique sense of humor to quote lines from movies that seem to fit the moment. If you're lucky (or unlucky, depending on your point of view) you may get one of my impersonations of Homer Simpson, Ronald Regan or Clint Eastwood, but never ask me to do  Mike Tyson, especially if I'm hungry. I have a great love for most animals and I share my home with "Rocky" my cat. It all works  because Rocky has me trained well ( pet owners know what i'm talking about.)

 I love my job, Loving what you do for a living is a great gift and being able to share that passion with my clients compliments my work. We all want the same thing... to have fun, be in love and enjoy life! "  I invite everyone to come join me in Maui. I  love to share my Photographic Artistry with you. Providing my clients with beautiful images to share with family and friends is always rewarding. So remember to reward yourself!
