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’ve been looking forward to Mary Beth (or MB, as her friends and family often call her) and Ben’s wedding ever since their Camden Maine engagement session that started with a drink and ended with a stunning sunset up on Mount Battie.  I really enjoyed Mary Beth and Ben’s company, and couldn’t wait to spend more time with them, their friends, and family at Sugarloaf Mountain.  The two grinned their way throughout their wedding day, and I found myself smiling behind my camera as their happiness was absolutely infectious.  Once dancing began, guests found several new uses for the chair sashes… you’ll have to get to the end of the blog post to see what I mean :).  Toward the end of the night, I even grabbed a pair of glow in the dark glasses that happened to be lying around and wore them as I photographed the dancing- it just felt right!

Here are a few of my favorite images from your wedding day, Mary Beth and Ben- enjoy!

I love taking on a few senior sessions during the summer- although I primarily focus on photographing couples and weddings, it’s always nice to shake things up.  Gabby, her mother, and her grandmother traveled all the way from Lancaster, New Hampshire to have her senior portraits done on Mount Desert Island and in Acadia National Park.  FUN!  I was close to calling off the session due to looming thunderstorms, but the skies remained clear and provided us with the most stunning soft light when we were on Sand Beach that turned the ocean to the prettiest, glowy blue shade, so thank goodness we still went through with it and didn’t wait until the next day!

Gabby, you and your family were a blast- thanks for spending the evening with me!  Here are a small selection of my favorites from our time together at the Asticou Gardens and Sand Beach- can’t wait to show you the full gallery!
