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.

We had been expecting 50 degree weather and some sun during our session on Sand Beach in Acadia National Park, but spring had other plans.  Instead, we were greeted with a breezy, grey, and cold day that wasn’t exactly springlike.  But, as a lover of grey, soft skies (they provide for quintessential Maine backdrops!), I really enjoyed the ambiance the weather brought to our session.  Jess, Alan, and I wandered around the mostly vacated beach, and Jess and Alan kept warm by snuggling close to one another.  The temperatures might not have been ideal, but is there anything better than having someone keep you warm?

We ended the session with a couple photos of the kids, who had lots of energy to burn as they ran and jumped along the beach.  Jess and Alan, I can’t wait for your Asticou Inn wedding this summer!

Here are a few of my favorites from our time together.

Engagement portrait season is here– hooray!  While winter is great for recharging and envisioning the upcoming season, nothing beats actually going out, spending time with interesting people, and being able to create their portraits.

It was a bit grey outside for Lauren, Hunter and their adorable pup Graham’s engagement session, but the grey skies, hovering over a similarly colored ocean, felt very quintessentially Maine.  We explored their ceremony and reception spots in Kennebunkport (St. Ann’s church and The Colony), headed over to the pier in Cape Porpoise, and Lauren and Hunter shared details about their wedding.  Already looking forward to their wedding this summer!

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