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.

Erin and Brandon wanted a small, intimate wedding, so the pair chose the beautiful Topside Inn as the special location where they would become husband and wife in front of their immediate families (they celebrated with other family members the next day).  There were only nine guests in attendance, and it felt like just the right number for this personal wedding.  Maria Northcott of A Sweet Start created a ceremony that was carefully tailored to reflect Erin and Brandon’s unique love for one another, and the day ended with the most mouthwatering dinner catered by Topside Inn.  The florals by Marianmade Farm were the perfect exclamation point on their already beautiful day.

Erin and Brandon, thank you for letting me feel like I was another guest at your wedding.  Here are a few of my favorite photos from your wedding day!

  • Maria | A Sweet Start - I love these, Kate! It’s so fun seeing all the things that happened that day before and after the ceremony. I love working with you! xoReplyCancel


You may look at these photos and say, “wait.. engagement session?  That looks like a wedding dress…” but I promise you- these two aren’t tying the knot for a little while longer!  Brenda and Desmond had a more casual engagement session in Los Angeles, but the pair wanted to do a formal engagement session in beautiful Acadia National Park.  And what a day we had!  We may have missed peak foliage (it arrived a week late in Maine this year), but we still had some soft pops of fall color which were perfectly complimented by the pastel hues in the sunset.  And isn’t that frothy concoction of a dress amazing?

Here are a few of my favorite photos from my session with Brenda and Desmond.  Here’s to hoping your wedding in Singapore is absolutely wonderful!
