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 and Real Maine Weddings.

It’s not often that I’m hired for maternity portraits, so I was thrilled when my 2013 bride, Jenn, asked me to her maternity photos!  We timed her session to make the most out of the UMaine ornamental garden, which was delightfully green and lush with flowers.  It may have been an overcast day, but Jenn’s warmth and smile made everything feel bright.

Here are a few of my favorite photos from our time together!

Oh, spring.  I am usually overjoyed when spring arrives every year, but after the insane winter we all experienced in the northeast, my excitement over the warmth and sun is a little more rabid in nature than usual.  I’m gleeful over how great the sun feels, how beautiful grass really is, and the flowers… oh, the flowers!  Thank goodness Maine has a beautiful spring to make up for the cold and all of the snow and ice we must suffer through!

I needed to check out a location for an upcoming session, so I brought along my second shooter (Tammie, also known as my mom!) so we could spend mother’s day together in the sun with our cameras amongst all of the flowers currently in bloom.  How lucky am I that I get to bond over photography with my mom?

The first shot is by her, and I’m jealous of it.
