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.

It’s one of my favorite times of the year.  Not only is the holiday season afoot, but it’s the end of the year- the perfect time to review the couples and engagement sessions I captured this year and painstakingly pick out my favorites from 2015.  The photos below come from a variety of different session types– engagement sessions (one including a wedding dress!), couples sessions, a proposal, a couples headshot session, and a day-in-the-life-esque couples session– but all highlight what I’m interested in when capturing a couple.  Although I’m particularly drawn to beautiful, scenic backdrops (which Maine certainly has an abundance of- I’m so lucky!) and capturing creative, artful portraits that would look beautiful printed on a large canvas gallery wrap and displayed on a living room wall, my main goal is to capture photos that invoke some sort of feeling and/or memory.  I want the viewers of the image to have a sense of who the couple is and how they love, and I want the couple to have a physical reminder of who they were at the time of the photo and how they felt.  If my heart flutters when looking at a photo I’ve made, I know I’ve succeeded.

It was exceptionally hard to narrow down these portraits, but I hope you enjoy this collection of favorites from 2015.  Next week I’ll be sharing my best wedding, elopement, and vow renewal photos from 2015, which is always my very favorite post of the year!

Happy holidays, all.  Enjoy these portraits!  If you’d like to see more, here’s a link to my 2015 Maine engagement portrait blog posts.

It may have rained for a bit halfway into Tori and Woody’s engagement session, which took place on the Point Lookout property and in Northport Maine, but it was worth it for the gorgeous cloudy skies that came after the showers.  Point Lookout is already a gorgeous location (it’s one of the best views I’ve seen at any Maine wedding venue!), but the weather, fall foliage, and Tori and Woody of course came together to make some impactful portraits happen.  We both happen to live close by, so we carpooled and shared dinner together after the session which allowed me to bond with the two of them and learn more about their wedding plans.

Tori and Woody are getting married at this very venue next summer, and I’m so looking forward to capturing their wedding day at this beautiful spot.  Here are a few of my favorites from our time together- enjoy!
