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 always loved North Haven Island.  It’s one of the prettiest locations in Maine, and every time I’m brought to the island for a wedding or engagement session I feel incredibly lucky.  I’ve been looking forward to this wedding for months, and it certainly didn’t disappoint.  Ashley and Rod got ready separately, and then had a beautiful first look in a lush private garden.  After a few portraits overlooking the ocean, the two prepared themselves for the ceremony.  Ashley’s entrance was an epic one, as she arrived to the ceremony on an antique firetruck that caught everyone by surprise.  The two included their two pups, Popeye and Olive, in the ceremony, and both were a riot to watch, and Popeye even sat down on her dress during the ceremony because he just wanted to be close to his mom and dad@ After a few more portraits, we headed over to Turner Farm, located on a sweeping vista that overlooks the sea, and celebrated the night away with lots of love, happiness, and dancing.

It was a pleasure to work with Cynthia Clayton and Kim Doll again- both do excellent work with makeup and hair.  The florals by Pam Mountain were lovely, and Turner Farm is one my favorite barns for a wedding in Maine.  You can’t beat the location!

Although this didn’t happen on the wedding day, I feel like it must be shared- little Popeye unfortunately escaped while Ashley and Rod were on their honeymoon and is now suspected to be in Brunswick, Maine.  Things are looking good- he’s been spotted several times and is on the run, but he still hasn’t been captured yet.  If you’d like to keep up with the search and learn how you can help, please like their Facebook fan page: Find Popeye.

And here are a few of my favorites from Ashley and Rod’s wedding day.  Enjoy!

For awhile I’ve been offering one option for wedding albums to keep things simple- this lovely 10″ x 10″ leather flush mount album.  But recently I discovered this gorgeous album and had to provide it as an offering.  Frankly… I’m in love with this album, which I’ve named the Signature Album.  It is a 10″ x 15″ album with 15 spreads (30 pages) and feels substantial and well-crafted.  Albums come with a variety of different cover options (leather, faux leather, linen, etc.) so that your album will look just as you envisioned it.

The Signature Album looks similar to my flush mount album on the outside, but the inside is definitely unique.  This album has the option to mix flush pages with matted pages, which results in a look that is both classic and modern.  This spread below is entirely all matted.

While this spread is partially flush and matted (matted on the right).  I love how the matted pages really lend a classic, refined air to this album!

This album features no gutter- just a crease.

The pages are thick and substantial, and the cover is also high quality.  The album is designed beautifully, with obvious care taken to all of the little details.
