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.

Lexi, of Lexi Lowell Photography is one of my longest and dearest photographer friends.  We regularly find the time to enjoy a drink together, or just spend time with each others’ pups.  We may each be busy during the wedding season, but I always look forward to coffee with her as a welcome distraction from editing :).  Lexi and her husband, Matt (her second photographer/partner in crime) wanted updated headshots that included their adorable pup, Finnlay (isn’t he a stud?), so we started by photographing them in their backyard, then moved to the UMaine gardens and a nearby lupine field sans the excitable Finnlay to complete their session together.

Here are a few of my favorites from their headshot session.

Laura and Dan’s wedding took place on a gorgeous day in June within spitting distance of Mount Katahdin.  The tradeoff may have been a few mosquitos, but those hungry little demons were worth the beautiful woodsy lakeside area that the Big Moose Inn provided.  Guests lounged around the property in their own cabins before their ceremony, which was tucked in the woods, and everyone enjoyed a casual day that was focused on having a good, relaxing time that turned into quite the party as the evening progressed.

Here are a few of my favorite photos from their wedding day.  Congrats, Laura and Dan!
