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 appears to friends and family that Alexandra and Federico spent a week in Maine merely to vacation, but the two of them had other plans- to renew their vows.  On a gorgeous overcast morning (that turned into bright sun as afternoon approached), we traveled around Acadia National Park prior to their vow renewal, taking portraits in a variety of locations including Sand Beach, Otter Cliffs and Jordan Pond.  We eventually met with the pastor in the Sand Beach parking lot, drove to a rocky cliff we had found while we were doing their vow renewal portraits, and we enjoyed the warmth and blue skies that the sun brought as it blessed their recommitment to each other.

Alexandra met Federico at a time in her life when she decided that she would like to travel and live somewhere else for awhile.  She closed her eyes, pointed to a map, and her finger fell upon Argentina.  That trip brought her to Federico, who has been in her life ever since.  What a love story for the ages!

Here are a few of my favorite photos from our time on Mount Desert Island.  I hope you come back to Maine soon, Alexandra and Federico!  Maybe next time you’ll have a moose sighting!

  • Meg Simone - I love this :) Everyone should do vow renewals, especially in such a stunning location. These are amazing Kate!ReplyCancel


I met Ashley a few years ago at a wedding I was photographing in Massachusetts- she was the makeup/hair artist (Verde Salon!), and her work was excellent.  It’s obvious I was thrilled when she thought of me for her own wedding!  Ashley and Chris didn’t want their wedding to feel traditional or stuffy- rather, they wanted to create a weekend event where everyone felt like they could kick back, relax, and enjoy themselves.  When I arrived, guests were lounging around Kingsley Pines, playing lawn games, sitting on porches, and enjoying lunch on a fabulously sunny, blue-skied day.  The vibe continued throughout the entire day as guests drank on the lawn during cocktail hour and leisurely strolled over to the barn for dancing.

Props go to Blue Elephant Catering, who are always a pleasure to work with- the two men who head the enterprise, Reuben and Fausto, are not only incredibly savvy, but fun.  I always feel taken care of when I’m working with them!

Here are a few of my favorite photos from Ashley and Chris’ wedding day.  Enjoy!
