I wanted to post now, just after getting back from our honeymoon. I can comment on our experience with Kate, which was terrific in every way. We’ve already gotten a sneak peak of our photos and the one we’ve seen is stunning! I’ll be happy to post again after we’ve received the photos, but there is already so much to say.
First of all, Kate’s photos: uh, hello...if you haven’t seen them. Go, thee, to the website, and check them out now. Even if you are not getting married. I told her once that they really are just worth seeing. Art for art’s sake. You don’t even have to be interested in weddings or know the people in them. You’ll feel like you do. She draws you in. She finds the moment. She finds the story. She finds the connection and the personality and brings it life in an unusual, gripping, surprising, and revealing way. Well, her work speaks for itself. What I want to comment on additionally here is how great she is to work with. She makes you feel right at home. We were both so comfortable around her and she has a way of encouraging your true self to burst free without inhibition. The same goes for your “couple self.” It’s exactly what you want for your day. Permission. Encouragement to be you and you together. Not frozen or forced conventional poses that you must assume but your inner story and quirk being wedding whisperered out of you. My spouse and I eloped this October in Ogunquit, ME and wondered if it would feel sad or lonely (it was truly just us—no family or friends) but it didn’t at all and Kate was a part of that magic of belonging. She was present and supportive in all the right ways and disappeared without us even knowing when the moment called for it. She has a true calling, and she’s a true professional. She’s also a ton of fun. You won’t be sorry you hired her.

We had a friend recommend Kate Crabtree to us, right after getting engaged. After seeing her work and posts on her website, we couldn't believe how talented she was and scheduled her to be with us at our wedding, before we scheduling anything else. That was the best decision we made! Kate is incredibly professional and personable, and we trusted her completely preparing for wedding. She helped us pick our venue, our photo locations, and other vendors she recommended in the area. On the day of our wedding we spent about 4 hours just taking pictures around Mount Desert Island, it was so much fun! And the pictures came out better than we could ever imagine. Kate captured every moment and every emotion that day, she never missed a second.

Kate was absolutely phenomenal from the very first meeting throughout the entire process! We couldn't have asked for a more on point, fun loving, talented photographer! Kate sees the beauty in everything and has a knack for highlighting that beauty for the world to see. Our photos are beyond our wildest dreams! She captured all of the emotion from tears to laugher. Looking at our photos is like reliving the entire day over again! She was very quick to respond to all of my questions and quickly became one of the family! She is very professional but still knows how to bust out a killer happy dance! 100% the best decision of our wedding was hiring Kate! You will not be disappointed! <3
Kate is phenomenol! She will get every photo of the things you missed during your big day. Don't hesitate to book Kate!!!
