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

It’s one of my favorite times of the year.  Not only is the holiday season afoot, but it’s the end of the year- the perfect time to review the couples and engagement sessions I captured this year and painstakingly pick out my favorites from 2015.  The photos below come from a variety of different session types– engagement sessions (one including a wedding dress!), couples sessions, a proposal, a couples headshot session, and a day-in-the-life-esque couples session– but all highlight what I’m interested in when capturing a couple.  Although I’m particularly drawn to beautiful, scenic backdrops (which Maine certainly has an abundance of- I’m so lucky!) and capturing creative, artful portraits that would look beautiful printed on a large canvas gallery wrap and displayed on a living room wall, my main goal is to capture photos that invoke some sort of feeling and/or memory.  I want the viewers of the image to have a sense of who the couple is and how they love, and I want the couple to have a physical reminder of who they were at the time of the photo and how they felt.  If my heart flutters when looking at a photo I’ve made, I know I’ve succeeded.

It was exceptionally hard to narrow down these portraits, but I hope you enjoy this collection of favorites from 2015.  Next week I’ll be sharing my best wedding, elopement, and vow renewal photos from 2015, which is always my very favorite post of the year!

Happy holidays, all.  Enjoy these portraits!  If you’d like to see more, here’s a link to my 2015 Maine engagement portrait blog posts.
