  • Kate Crabtree did more than capture the essence and spirit of our wedding day! She is truly an artist. Her unique, vibrant, colorful and creative style captured moments that blew our minds, filled our eyes with tears and will be framed and displayed forever in our home. She exceeded our vision for still frames captured on our wedding day. Kate is genuinely kind, reliable and super organized - which was important given our micro-wedding took place during a pandemic! She's a total professional and an all encompassing wonderful photographer that we would (and already have) recommend to friends, family and acquaintances. We can not thank you enough Kate! And we so look forward to working with you again. XO, Pete and Hillary

  • There are not enough amazing things I can say about Kate. If I could give her 10 stars on everything, I would! A phenomenal photographer that I could trust was my #1 must have for our wedding. I had seen her work from a friend's wedding years before and immediately sought her out when the time came for ours. Having a photography background myself, I was VERY picky about our photographer choices, and found myself always comparing everyone else to Kate. Her images captured the feel, the emotions, the action, and the dramatic natural landscape perfectly. All of these things were important for us on our day. She's not a filter kind of gal; she understands the technical aspects behind great photography and I trust her 1000%. Her second photographer (Ashley) was also amazing. They both made us laugh and feel comfortable, like we'd all known each other forever. If it wasn't for the two of them, our portraits would have taken forever. Kate is on point and SUPER organized. She was the best deci... Read more

  • I am at a loss for words when it comes to how well Kate did at photographing our wedding. She was open, available, detailed, and professional. I can recommend Kate without reservation to capture your wedding. I’m going to break my review into four sections and provide my experience with each. 1. Photograph Quality 2. Planning and Preparation 3. Day of 4. Follow up Photograph Quality I’ll start with what most people want to know. Her photographs are spectacular. I’m uploading a few examples, but she captured everything and then some. The photographs she took really do allow me to relive the day. They captured not just the event, but the emotion and the narrative. I remember thinking to myself that we would be lucky to get a shot or two that looked like the ones on her website, but we have several dozen that impress on their own and several dozen more that bring joy to my heart every time I see them. Planning and Preparation Kate starts the relationship w... Read more

  • Booking Kate was the best decision we could have possibly made for our wedding photography. As soon as we booked our venue, they suggested reaching out to Kate to see if she would be available (and warned us to get a move on since she was so popular). Thankfully she had our wedding date free, and from the minute I met her I knew she would be our photographer. Kate is professional, organized, charming and easy to talk to. She took an immediate interest in learning what would make our wedding special, and was amazingly helpful throughout the planning process. I was so excited to have her with us for our wedding - and she somehow managed to exceed my expectations! Kate and her second photographer Ashley were the perfect additions to our families on our special day. They were so much fun to spend time with, and we truly felt like we had two of our best friends taking the photos, even though we had all just met. Since our big day we have loved seeing the beautiful photos and have been s... Read more

  • I’ve known Kate for decades. When she started her photography business, I started following with interest. By the time I was planning my wedding, I knew there was no other choice for me: Kate had to photograph my wedding. Her work was breathtaking (stylistically photojournalist, which is my preferred style) and I knew she would be great to work with. She had already seen me at some of my worst moments and had been there for some of my best (thanks to a shared sport). She was a calm, positive influence through it all. Despite not seeing her in about 10 years, we picked up right where we left off – friendly, excited to connect on our similarities, and totally focused on the task at hand. I kid you not that the second I signed my contract with Point Lookout, I signed my contract with Kate. She was that important to me. Kate was a huge resource through much of my planning – I sent her my pre/post wedding shots (all the family portraits, etc.), and she gave me realistic timelines.... Read more

  • 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 h... Read more

  • 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!

  • Man oh man, what can I say about Kate Crabtree and the magical photography services she brought to our wedding. Simply put, her work will be the biggest reminder that my wife and I will ever have in reliving those incredible moments throughout our special day. Kate brings a pure sense of fun to the entire experience. Whereas my wife and I are both a bit camera shy, Kate puts us at complete ease and blends into the environment capturing those exact candid moments that are uniquely us. But when she sees a rare opportunity for the perfect outdoor shot, she’s not shy enough to pull you aside when the window is closing and you’ll be glad she did. In our particular case, my wife dreaded the idea of rainfall on our wedding day and when it inevitably came to fruition, Kate captured probably the best shot that could possibly come from rain on a wedding day. Our single best photo probably came from that moment when my wife and I were standing outside in the rain – I never would have ... Read more

  • Where do we even begin?! Kate Crabtree is THE BEST!!! We hired Kate after checking out her website and speaking briefly on the phone. We were impressed with her previous work but also loved her personality and approach to photography. We found our match! Our wedding photos are simply amazing and everything we could have imagined. All the little moments that Kate captured, the looks, the smiles, the gentle touches, the goofy moments, all of it. You could feel the love, happiness, and experience the natural beauty of the location through Kate's lens. We have had so much fun reliving our wedding day through our photos. So much so, that we just keep looking at them over and over again. Kate, thank you so much for using your incredible talent to capture the most wonderful day of our lives. We can't express how grateful we are to have had you as our photographer. Simply the best!

  • My husband and I had Kate photograph our July 2016 wedding on Peaks Island in Maine. I could not be happier with our photos. Kate was such a joy to work with from beginning to end. The quality of her work, her passion for photography, and her people-skills are incredible. She so easily fit in with my friends and family during our wedding day it felt like she was a member of the family! She did such a great job capturing all of the moments of the day from the big ones to the small ones. I would highly recommend her for anyone looking for a wedding photographer!! Thank you Kate!!

  • Kate was the single-best decision we made for our September wedding. It's a run, don't walk situation here...if you can, don't hesitate, get Kate! As soon as I saw her portfolio, I knew she was exactly what I was looking for in a photographer - she tells a story with her one-of-a-kind photos. We go back through our photo gallery, and are thrown back into the ceremony, or the reception. Instead of standard, often uncomfortable, posed photos, Kate opts to capture 'the little moments' that are the real gems of the day - laughing, tears, quick kisses, epic dance parties. Some of the photos Kate captured, I didn't even realize she was there! She works around you to make sure you're comfortable, at-ease, and your best self. I've had countless people tell me that my photos are the best they've ever seen from a wedding, and I owe that 100% to Kate. Also, as many of the people you hire for photos, videos, etc. are going to be with you for some of your most intimate moments, you want to select w... Read more

  • Early on in the wedding planning process, we both knew that a good photographer to capture our day was something we were willing to invest in, one of the best decisions of the whole process (besides picking Kate, of course!). Excellent pictures that captured the emotions of the day is one thing, but all of the help along the way surpassed our expectations too. Once booking Kate we received a very complete FAQ document (perfect for someone who thrives on organization like myself), as well as feedback and suggestions on the overall time-line of the day. Kate and Tammie (her second shooter / mom) are extremely talented, fun, and professional. I won’t speak much about the actual photos, as the proof is in her work on her website, but much of the beauty of those photos is how relaxed she makes you feel during both the engagement and photo shot. She’s also very adventurous… standing on the back of a canoe for a great shot? No problem for Kate! As mentioned in previous revie... Read more

  • Kate was wonderful to work with right from the very beginning. I have always disliked making phone calls especially to strangers so the prospect of interviewing numerous photographers mostly by phone was daunting. Kate put me at ease right away and the conversation felt like chatting with a friend. Kate was a great resource as we were figuring out the timeline for the day, providing guidance when the best light would be for photos and how long they generally take. The day of the wedding she kept us calm and the three of us had a lot of fun during our first look photo shoot. Her instincts during the entire day were phenomenal, she always had great ideas for shots and somehow managed to not be a presence during the event itself, which is remarkable as the wedding party totaled a dozen people. When we received our flash drive it was very tastefully packaged and she had some great sales around the holidays so we purchased some prints for our families as gifts, which was good because it...

  • Kate is absolutely fabulous. We haven't even received our photos yet, but I know they will be great and I can't wait to see them! Someone gave me a great piece of advice when I was choosing our photographer: that you want to choose someone that you are comfortable with so that you are 100% natural and yourselves in the picture. Kate is wonderful at making you feel comfortable. She is easy-going and approachable, but always on top of everything. She was often the go-between for all of the different vendors. She also did a great job capturing really fun and interesting photos (like climbing on top of a chair on top of a table to get a great shot). She was all over the place capturing a lot of great scenes and she seemed to enjoy herself along the way. We love her laid-back feel, which comes across in her natural, candid photos We splurged a bit for Kate, but we feel like it was worth it--she is fabulous!
