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.

Where do I begin with Sarah and Trevor?  I was originally supposed to do a winter engagement session with the two of them, but the date we had selected turned out to be bitterly cold AND windy- not the best mix in the world for a beach engagement session!  So, we decided to hold off until May to take portraits in Kennebunkport and Cape Porpoise, and although it was a little nippy and very windy in May, it was all worth it for the big blue skies, the sherbet sunset, and Sarah’s hair flying ever so perfectly in the breeze.

Sarah met Trevor at the gym he worked at, so it’s only fitting the two of them just opened their own gym!  I had such a great time with the two of them that I found myself wishing I lived in southern Maine so I could support their new endeavor, so if you’re in the market for a gym in southern Maine you should check out EYJ Fitness.

I’m already counting down the days to their December Kennebunkport Maine wedding- it can’t come soon enough.  These are a few of my favorite photos from our time together– I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

You could say it was a coincidence, but I believe it was fate that spring arrived the very day of Rachel and Danny’s wedding at Hardy Farm in Fryeburg Maine.  The weather had been a bit touch and go, but their wedding day in western Maine welcomed temperatures that rose into the 70s and it was temperate enough to wander around without a jacket.  And while their wedding would have been lovely even if it had been cooler, it was all the better for it.  Everything was appointed so beautifully by Rachel and Danny- from their stunning pink peony florals by Dutch Bloemen Winkel (I’m such a sucker for peonies!), to their high-energy dance floor, headed up ever so well by Luke Lanigan of Revolution DJs, and everything else in between (you’ll have to see the vendor team below– all deserve accolades!), their Maine wedding was both an elegant soiree and raucous party– quite the feat!

Here are a few of my favorite photos from their wedding day.  Thanks for having me photograph your wedding Rachel and Danny!
