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 felt like I had to wait forever to meet Ha and Quan- the two booked their engagement session with me months in advance and we shared many emails as we discussed possible portrait locations in Acadia National Park (there are so many gorgeous spots for portraits, by the way- you really can’t go wrong with the locations you choose!) and chatted about Ha’s search for the perfect wedding venue in Connecticut.  Then, our initial engagement session date was cancelled due to an emergency, and I was seriously bummed that we had to delay our meeting.  But, the day finally came for their rescheduled session, and when the prettiest low-lying clouds descended upon Cadillac Mountain during sunset I realized that it had definitely been worth the wait to finally meet these two beautiful people and capture their love.

Here are a few of my favorite photos from Jordan Pond, Cadillac, and a few other spots on the side of the Park Loop Road.  Enjoy!

Erin and Brandon wanted a small, intimate wedding, so the pair chose the beautiful Topside Inn as the special location where they would become husband and wife in front of their immediate families (they celebrated with other family members the next day).  There were only nine guests in attendance, and it felt like just the right number for this personal wedding.  Maria Northcott of A Sweet Start created a ceremony that was carefully tailored to reflect Erin and Brandon’s unique love for one another, and the day ended with the most mouthwatering dinner catered by Topside Inn.  The florals by Marianmade Farm were the perfect exclamation point on their already beautiful day.

Erin and Brandon, thank you for letting me feel like I was another guest at your wedding.  Here are a few of my favorite photos from your wedding day!
