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.

After a few weeks of searching I was able to procure a few copies of Seacoast Weddings magazine (thanks Eric for sending a few copies!).  I knew I had a few images published in their 2015 issue, so I couldn’t wait to see it!  For those of you who don’t know about Seacoast Magazine and are currently planning a wedding, it’s an inspirational magazine, chock full of tips and full of photography inspiration that is provided by New England photographers primarily in Maine, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts.  While I know many couples are primarily keeping their search online, carefully curated magazines like Seacoast provide a quick dip into the pool of local vendor talent that can’t be matched with national inspirational sites like the Knot.

See that summer cover mention by my portrait?  Here’s a fun announcement- one of my images from Arielle and Jesse’s wedding will be gracing the Seacoast Wedding’s cover this summer!  Can’t wait to have it in my hands and show it here– it’s always an honor to have work published, but an exceptional honor to have an image chosen for the cover of a magazine!  Thanks, Seacoast Weddings!


Magazines should be on newsstands now in southern Maine, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire- make sure to pick up a copy and start your wedding planning process right!



A month or two ago the Maine Wedding Company put a call out for Maine destination weddings, so I submitted.  I was pretty thrilled to find out that out of 60 photographers and videographers that submitted weddings that I had not one, but TWO weddings as finalists!  Arielle and Jesse’s Peaks Island Wedding and Maleah and Vinnie’s John Peters Estate wedding made the cut.  What an honor!  Make sure to stop by the contest to view all of the lovely wedding videos and photos, but make sure to take a moment to vote for these two spectacular celebrations, filled with love, joy, excellent vendors and stunning details.  Thank you, Arielle, Jesse, Maleah and Vinnie for trusting me to capture everything that made your wedding day special- I still get goosebumps thinking about your weddings!
