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.

I was excited to photograph Rachel and Nick’s wedding at Cliffside Lodge after meeting Rachel and Nick just a couple of weeks prior at their University of Maine engagement session– the pair were a lot of fun and I was sure their wedding would also be a joy to attend.  I was right- from the beautiful woodsy location of Cliffside Lodge, to the laid back, warm atmosphere, to the delicious food (pizza by Pizza By Fire and cupcakes and gelato by Love Kupcakes), and the energetic dancing, everything felt focused around having a good time. I really loved capturing photos of Rachel, Nick, their wedding party, family and friends enjoying themselves and celebrating their love for Rachel and Nick, because if one thing was apparent, these two are simply adored.

Here are a few of my favorites from Rachel and Nick’s wedding day.  Enjoy!

Darra and Dave had been planning a larger wedding, but on a whim the pair decided to elope amongst Darra’s family at a family camp in Dedham Maine.  There was no time to do any significant planning, but it didn’t matter-the love shared between the two of them and Darra’s family made their nuptials special and heartwarming.  Their baby, Buddy, wandered during the ceremony and joined them for a few portraits, and I definitely made sure I got my share of cuddles before leaving- he’s such a lover and looked so dapper in his tux that I may have threatened to dognap him.

Thank you for letting me be a part of such an important moment in your life, Darra and Dave- it was perfect.  Here are a few of my favorite photos from your elopement.
