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.

Sara and Brian traveled from Texas to Kennebunkport, Maine with their four children, Taylor, Avery, Drew, and Alex, to have a small, weekday wedding celebration with close family and friends.  Ariel Johnson put her makeup and hair skills to good use on Sara, Taylor, and Avery, while Ariel Pelletier, the wonderful coordinator at the Nonantum Resort, put the final touches on their ceremony spot, dining table, and even found some extra time to pin the boutonnieres on Brian, Alex, and Drew.  After the touching ceremony, we went outside to take a few portraits and then headed to dinner.  After dinner, we went outside to finish portraits and took the time to appreciate the gorgeous sunset that was laid out before us.

Other vendors that should be mentioned are Minka Flowers, who crafted the stunning bouquets and centerpieces for this elegant affair, and Brian Callaghan, who performed ceremony music and background music for dinner on the guitar.

Here are a few favorites from Sara and Brian’s wedding day.  Enjoy!

I’ve been looking forward to Mary Beth (or MB, as her friends and family often call her) and Ben’s wedding ever since their Camden Maine engagement session that started with a drink and ended with a stunning sunset up on Mount Battie.  I really enjoyed Mary Beth and Ben’s company, and couldn’t wait to spend more time with them, their friends, and family at Sugarloaf Mountain.  The two grinned their way throughout their wedding day, and I found myself smiling behind my camera as their happiness was absolutely infectious.  Once dancing began, guests found several new uses for the chair sashes… you’ll have to get to the end of the blog post to see what I mean :).  Toward the end of the night, I even grabbed a pair of glow in the dark glasses that happened to be lying around and wore them as I photographed the dancing- it just felt right!

Here are a few of my favorite images from your wedding day, Mary Beth and Ben- enjoy!
