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.

I always look forward to building this blog every year because it allows me to curate the 10-15,000 photos that I provide to my couples every year and share my very favorites of the bunch.  I use it as a moment of reflection in regards to where I am currently as a wedding photographer, as a source for reassessing my focus for the upcoming year, and as a celebration for completing another year of gorgeous celebrations with gorgeous people whose love and joy have made all of these images possible.  If there’s anything to conclude from this process of reflection and celebration, it’s that I’m exceptionally lucky to meet these couples, their families, and friends, and capture the moments that will help them remember how they felt throughout the course of their wedding day.

I’m tempted to write more, but I’d like for these images to speak for themselves.  Enjoy the gorgeous landscapes, the belly laughs, the happy tears, the hugs, and the significant glances that say everything without a sound.

2014, you were spectacular.  Thank you to all of you who helped make it happen- I feel like I’m forever in your debt.

  • Sammy - May I just reiterate that you have found your calling, my dear?! I could look at these all day. :)ReplyCancel


Selecting my favorite engagement and wedding photos from the past year is one of my favorite tasks to take on each year.  I love to reflect upon the work I’ve produced over the course of the year, but in part what’s just as great is remembering the experiences I shared with my couples.  Sure, the moments we shared may not be as epic or emotional as the ones experienced on their wedding days, but the time we spent together against amazing Maine landscapes was excellent on many levels.  I loved to get to know all of these couples, and for the ones whose weddings have yet to be photographed I can’t wait to experience and capture them as they say their I dos, dance into the night, and maybe, just maybe, squeeze out a happy tear or two.

My life and my work is full because of these couples.  I’m so appreciative that they trust me to document how the two of them love and relate to one another.  Thank you, all!

Coming next week are my favorite wedding photos of 2014.  Can’t wait to share that curated selection!  But, for now, here are my favorite engagement and couples portraits from 2014.  Enjoy!
