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.

Two days prior to their wedding, I met Sonia and Matt for their engagement session.  The pair had never visited Portland before, so it was fun to wander around the city with them.  We met for drinks to get to know one another at one of my favorite bars, the Portland Hunt & Alpine Club, then began our session at the Portland City Hall.  I had never photographed there before, so I was in for a treat- the interior is beautiful, as well is the light that filters in through the large windows.  We wandered to Wharf St., and concluded on the waterfront.

Thank you for spending the evening with me, Sonia and Matt!  Just wait until you see their stunning photos from their Grace Restaurant Wedding!

Alli and Morgan’s wedding felt like one you would see in a movie.  Every detail, so carefully thought out by Paula Cano of A Family Affair of Maine, blew me away.  From the lush white florals, by Seasons Downeast Designs, to the dramatic lighting, by The Event Light Pros, and the rest of the work put forth by the incredible team of vendors that helped make this event happen (listed at the end of this blog post- too many to discuss here!) made the wedding one I’ll never forget.  But, the heartbeat of this wedding was Alli and Morgan and the significant connection they have shared ever since high school. The way the two of them would light up when the other was near really made me feel their passion they share for each other, and those small, beautiful moments really made me glad to be their wedding photographer.

Here are a few of my favorite photos from Alli and Morgan’s wedding day- enjoy!
