Maine Wedding Photographer | Kate Crabtree Photography »

  • Kate Crabtree is an award winning Maine documentary wedding photographer who creates exuberant wedding photography for couples who wear their hearts on their sleeves. 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.

Like many of my weddings this year, there was a high chance of rain for Tori and Woody’s Point Lookout Resort wedding in Northport, Maine.  A couple of hours prior to the ceremony, she had to face a decision- would she like to chance an outdoor ceremony with a 50% chance of rain (the backup being an undecorated room where guests would have to stand), or change the ceremony plans so that the ceremony would happen inside?  Tori had always envisioned her ceremony overlooking the Penobscot Bay, so she remained steadfast- she would cross her fingers and hope things went her way.  And it ended up being a good call- at the time of her ceremony, the skies were clear and dramatic, the sun shone, and Tori and Woody’s ceremony was exactly as a Maine summer wedding should be.

I’d been looking forward to Tori and Woody’s wedding for since 2014, when I met the pair at Starbucks during a meeting that stretched more than two hours because I was having such a fun time getting to know them.  These two compliment each other so well- Tori’s bubbly and warm nature draws out Woody, who is quieter, but incredibly loving and kind.  Being at their wedding, seeing how much their family and friends love them, and being able to capture that love was such a pleasure, and I thoroughly enjoyed my time getting to know the major players in their lives.  I was so lucky to have been a part of their wedding!

Here are a few of my favorite photos from Tori and Woody’s big day.  Enjoy!

Halfway through our session at Kettle Cove in Cape Elizabeth, when Kate casually said, “we’ll get into the ocean if you want us to,” I felt sincerely lucky Kate and Kyle had booked me for their engagement session (and their upcoming wedding at The Barn at Flanagan Farm).  These two were down for a bit of adventure- whether it was running, or walking into the not exactly warm ocean, these two were willing to make it happen, and I loved them for it because sometimes taking a little risk results in some awesome rewards!

After watching the sunset at Kettle Cove, we stole away for a few drinks in Portland, where I didn’t want to leave their warm, friendly company.  It’s unlikely I’ll see them again until their wedding, as the pair live in New York state, so.. Kate and Kyle!  I miss you- can’t wait to be reunited with you at your wedding next year!

Here’s a few of my favorite photos from my time with Kate and Kyle.  Enjoy!
