Maine Wedding Photographer | Kate Crabtree Photography »

  • Kate Crabtree is an award winning Maine wedding photographer who creates evocative and timeless wedding photography for couples who would like their love story to be told authentically. Although she is located in Bangor, Maine (central Maine), she happily travels to coastal and southern Maine, and throughout New England to capture unique wedding photos and engagement portraits. She has been featured on Style Me Pretty, recently named as one of the top 50 wedding photographers in the United States by Weddzilla, and published in Maine Magazine, Seacoast Weddings, and Real Maine Weddings.

It’s New Year’s Eve, which is a fitting day to share my favorite wedding photos from 2015.  In short, what a wonderful year- I traveled to all four corners of Maine, photographed weddings on the coast, in the woods, on islands, and on lakes, captured receptions in ballrooms, tents, private residences, barns, and inns, and had a blast while doing so.  It was a pleasure to enter into each of my couples’ lives for a day or two to capture not only the story of their wedding day, but to photograph emotional moments that will help characterize exactly what their wedding was about- family, friends, and their partner/life copilot/lover/husband/wife/etc.  It’s deeply rewarding to be able to listen to heartfelt toasts and capture the laughter and tears that bubble up from the sentiments, and to quietly make photos of crying parents as they watch their child marry the love of their life, and I am so grateful that couples entrust me to be there for these pivotal moments.

Here are a collection of my favorite wedding photos from 2015.  Included is also an elopement and a vow renewal.  Enjoy!

  • Michelle Libby - Oh Kate, every few months I get my Crabtree photography “fix” and go through some of your sessions and think to myself, how does one see and capture such beautiful images the way you do? You are one of the most talented artists I’ve known, so accomplished so quickly, so naturally. Each year gets better and better! Happy New Year my gifted friend-you did a fantastic job with 2015!ReplyCancel

    • Kate - Thanks Michelle :) Your words mean a lot to me! Looking forward to catching up when I see you next!ReplyCancel

Cassandra has been a close friend and confidant for awhile- she’s also a wedding photographer, and we, along with our good friend Lexi, meet up often for coffee/drinks, and when that’s impossible due to our busy schedules we keep up a never-ending Facebook chat window that is filled with random minutiae that keeps us connected with our day to day lives.  Therefore, I was exceptionally excited when Derek sent me an email- would I be able to photograph his wedding proposal (!!!!!) to Cassandra on her birthday?  Uh, YES!  I immediately filled Lexi in because I knew I’d need a wingwoman and someone to share my secret.  We set forth to get Cassandra out of the house for a couple of hours so Derek could prepare, so we invited a few mutual friends to join us for a birthday dinner for Cassandra.  I managed to leave dinner a little early with feigned sickness and sped to Cassandra and Derek’s place so I could ensure I’d beat Cassandra home.  When Lexi finally brought her home from her b-day dinner, Julian led her inside and Derek proposed with an adorable handmade card in front of the Christmas tree.  It doesn’t get much sweeter than that.

Here are a few of my favorites from Cassanda and Derek’s proposal.  Thank you, Derek, for letting me be part of such a wonderful moment!  I’m so excited for all three of you!
