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.

If there’s one thing I felt I knew at the end of my engagement session with Jillian and Brian, it was that this couple easy laughter characterized their sweet and carefree relationship with one another.  I love capturing shared laughter, and these two made it exceptionally simple for me as their laughter is a huge part of who they are as a couple.  So even though it was deceptively chilly at the beautiful Kettle Cove in Cape Elizabeth, the two cuddled, warmed each other with their giggles, and we made it through (with a few warm car breaks throughout :) ).

I’m already looking forward to their fall wedding, but, for now… here’s a few of my favorites from their session together!

Where do I begin with Sarah and Trevor?  I was originally supposed to do a winter engagement session with the two of them, but the date we had selected turned out to be bitterly cold AND windy- not the best mix in the world for a beach engagement session!  So, we decided to hold off until May to take portraits in Kennebunkport and Cape Porpoise, and although it was a little nippy and very windy in May, it was all worth it for the big blue skies, the sherbet sunset, and Sarah’s hair flying ever so perfectly in the breeze.

Sarah met Trevor at the gym he worked at, so it’s only fitting the two of them just opened their own gym!  I had such a great time with the two of them that I found myself wishing I lived in southern Maine so I could support their new endeavor, so if you’re in the market for a gym in southern Maine you should check out EYJ Fitness.

I’m already counting down the days to their December Kennebunkport Maine wedding- it can’t come soon enough.  These are a few of my favorite photos from our time together– I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
