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.

Maine has a variety of pretty backdrops- while most people known Maine for its rocky, picturesque coastline and quaint lighthouses, there are also stunning views to be found in the woods, mountains, and lakeside.  Christina and Nate, who have family connections in the area, favored the stunning scenic views of Moosehead lake in Greenville Maine for their wedding day which made the Blair Hill Inn the perfect venue for their elegant destination wedding.  The pair, who currently live in Minnesota, shared Greenville with their friends and family by partaking in a stunning sunset cruise on the Katahdin the night prior, and then wining and dining their guests at a mouthwatering five course meal after their emotional ceremony.  Dancing followed as twilight descended upon the property.

I have to give major props to Jessica Candage, who did both hair and makeup for Christina and her wedding party.  Not only did they look flawless, but throughout the evening I kept hearing them exclaim over how they loved the quality of her work and how they felt, so she’s definitely someone to check out if you are looking for a makeup artist!

Here are a few of my favorite images from Christina and Nate’s wedding.

Sara and Brian traveled from Texas to Kennebunkport, Maine with their four children, Taylor, Avery, Drew, and Alex, to have a small, weekday wedding celebration with close family and friends.  Ariel Johnson put her makeup and hair skills to good use on Sara, Taylor, and Avery, while Ariel Pelletier, the wonderful coordinator at the Nonantum Resort, put the final touches on their ceremony spot, dining table, and even found some extra time to pin the boutonnieres on Brian, Alex, and Drew.  After the touching ceremony, we went outside to take a few portraits and then headed to dinner.  After dinner, we went outside to finish portraits and took the time to appreciate the gorgeous sunset that was laid out before us.

Other vendors that should be mentioned are Minka Flowers, who crafted the stunning bouquets and centerpieces for this elegant affair, and Brian Callaghan, who performed ceremony music and background music for dinner on the guitar.

Here are a few favorites from Sara and Brian’s wedding day.  Enjoy!
