Maine Wedding Photographer | Kate Crabtree Photography »

  • Kate Crabtree is an award winning Maine documentary wedding photographer who creates exuberant wedding photography for couples who wear their hearts on their sleeves. 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.

My favorite weddings are filled with people who I simply adore, and I found myself just so happy and so at home with Megan, Mike, their friends, and their family.  Megan’s entire family (including the boys!) was with her as she got ready in her parent’s home, and it was clear as the day went on how close they were to each other- just look at the photo where Megan is putting on her gown, and you can see how many people were surrounding her that morning!  And keep an eye out for a prominent sign in Megan’s parent’s house that alerted me to the fact I was in the presence of some very awesome people.  After a very memorable ceremony by Father Phil Tracy at St. Bartholomew Church in Cape Elizabeth, we spent some time at Kettle Cove for some beachy Maine portrait goodness, then retired inland to the Portland Club for drinks, toasts, sweet parent dances, and lots and lots of open floor dancing.

I had a ball, Megan and Mike.  Here’s hoping these photos help you remember how wonderful your wedding day was!

Cole and TJ traveled all the way to Maine from Georgia to elope in Acadia National Park on a sunny (albeit mildly cold) day in September.  We started with a few portraits at Jordan Pond, and then met TJ’s grandfather, his wife, and Barbara Colby, their wedding officiant, at the top of Cadillac Mountain for their ceremony.  We found a secluded spot on the mountain at sunset, and not only were we treated to a sweet ceremony and amusing vows (Cole promised to never lay a finger to TJ’s motorcycle), but gorgeous views as well.  Afterwards, we took a few more portraits on what we called “marriage rock,” and I finally left Cole and TJ so that they could celebrate their new marriage with TJ’s grandfather and wife over dinner.

Elopements are such special events to photograph- I love how intimate they feel, and feel so lucky to be a part of them when the guest list is tiny or nonexistent.  Here are a few of my favorite portraits and moments from Cole and TJ’s elopement- enjoy!
