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.

A couple of weeks ago, a few photographer friends and I put together a bridal portrait shoot at the beautiful French’s Point.  It’s one of my favorite venues in Maine- the tranquil atmosphere, classically Maine estate (which features the most beautiful window light!), onsite sailcloth tent, and ocean views make it the perfect place to have a coastal Maine wedding.  We invited Torey and Mellisa, two recent brides, to have their hair and makeup done by Dana Bement, and spent hours photographing inside the estate and around the beautiful property.  Morningtide Garden enhanced our shoot as well with bouquets. It was such a fun way to prepare for the wedding season!

Here are a few of my favorite photos from my time with Torey and Mellisa at French’s Point.

In March, Tony and I made a last minute decision to get away during his spring break.  I had always wanted to visit the west coast, and I had a good friend who lived in San Francisco, so we spent a week wandering around the city with no plan or goal in mind, only to explore, relax, and eat.  I carried around my little Fuji X-T1 (the perfect travel camera!) and the two of us spent our days exploring our little quiet neighborhood, Noe Valley, walking around the Mission, checking out the Golden Gate Bridge, meeting up with other photographer friends over drinks, stumbling upon a Prince flash mob, and eating and drinking to our hearts’ content at various spots we came upon by happenstance.  We spent a few days with my good friend Heidi and her husband, Harry, partaking in street photography in Union Square, paragliding (Harry paraglides for a living- what a life, right?!) and we ended our trip by being photographed by Heidi (thank you!).  My only regret is that Heidi and I never got a photo together other than a underexposed cell phone picture, but it only means that I’ll need to visit her again soon. :)

Wedding season is starting up in just a couple of weeks, so before you know it this blog will be filled with photos of happy couples and beautiful moments, but for now let me share a few San Francisco photos.  I’ll be back!
