Maine Wedding Photographer | Kate Crabtree Photography »

  • Kate Crabtree is an award winning Maine documentary wedding photographer who creates exuberant wedding photography for couples who wear their hearts on their sleeves. 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.

It may be snowing in Bangor today (and I thought for sure that we were going to have an early spring!) but summer is right around the corner, meaning that, central and coastal Maine 2014 seniors– it’s time to book your senior portraits!  I take on a very select amount of senior portraits each year so that I can provide the best service possible to my awesome seniors, so I strongly suggest that you book with me as soon as possible in order to hold your date, even for the summer and fall.

Need some incentive to book now?  The first three seniors who book a session for March, April, or May will receive an additional $60 credit toward purchasing high resolution images, prints, canvas gallery wraps, and albums.  Seniors who book a session by April 30th for a session between June and December will receive an additional $30 credit toward prints and products.  Spring is a great time for senior portraits– everything is green, there’s lots of flowers, and it’s (usually) nice and warm.  Winter is also a really fun season to have senior portraits done– although it does require thicker clothes, colors really pop against snow, and who can say no to posing in adorable boots and scarves?  Plus, all your friends will probably do their senior portraits in the summer, so your senior portraits will be delightfully unique.

Make sure to contact me asap if you want to learn more and secure a date!  I look forward to hearing from you and sharing my pricing and product information, and I promise– we’re going to have fun!

Surprise!  After months of collaboration and hard work by the Braizen team, and in particular by Jasmine, my rock star sister from another mister (yes, I really did just used that phrase) designer, my site is finally redesigned and rather snazzy!  I’m a lover of all-American classic style, and I just about died when Jasmine came up with the idea to use textile patterns as an accent for my brand.  I would have never thought of it on my own, but it’s the perfect accent to my simple and clean branding.

What’s even better is the fact that every single page on my site (save for blog posts) is completely different.  Make sure to click through a few pages on my site to see what I mean.  Here’s a few sexy screenshots!

(See that gingham below?  I own a button up in EXACTLY those colors and pattern… should I wear it to all of my client meetings so I can embody my brand? :) )

I really can’t say enough good things about team Braizen and Jasmine.  In the beginning I had absolutely no idea how to explain what I wanted, but Jasmine was able to look at the images I pinned to my branding Pinterest board and was able to see relationships between pins that I was completely oblivious to.  She helped me to figure out what design elements inspire me and my work, and, in a sense, gave me a better understanding of who I am and what I love.  She (along with Braizen) became more than a company I had hired and became friends that I really, really hope to meet someday so I can give them huge hugs and tell them how much they have helped me, both personally and business-wise, over the last few months.

One of my VERY favorite new additions to my business is my new business cards, which includes the most perfect tagline that sums my business up in a nutshell: “friend & photog”.  I like to think of these cards and that tagline as being a little hug transferred via cardstock.

I’m currently designing new packaging, so you’ll get the chance to see more of my brand in action in the months to come.  I hope you love my branding as much as I do– I’m kind of obsessed right now!
