About Us

Hello! We’re the Crabtrees. Hailey & Joel. We met when I, Hailey, sold Joel a box of Milk Duds at the movie theater I worked at in college. That was almost nine years ago! I still buy Joel boxes of them as a little reminder. We’ve been photographing weddings together since 2010 and married since 2012.

When it comes to wedding photography, our goal is to tell each couple’s story authentically and creatively. We’re both storytellers, so we love getting to know our clients, their history and their plans for the future. Weddings are full of amazing, emotional moments, and no two are the same. These moments are powerful and we truly love capturing them.

For fun, we love to travel, check out local breweries, read, snuggle our rescue pets (three cats and a Husky) and write. Joel does a lot of freelance writing for Downeast Magazine. I am currently working on an EP.

We’re located in Orrington, Maine (by Bangor), but happily travel throughout Maine, New England and beyond. Our work has been been featured in/on Style Me Pretty, Seacoast Weddings, Real Maine Weddings, Maine Magazine and WellWed.

About You

You’re marrying your best friend.

The two of you spend most of the time laughing together.

The details that you care most about at your wedding are family heirlooms that have their own story.

You can’t wait to celebrate with your closest family and friends on the dance floor.

You have a strong connection to Maine and New England. Maybe you grew up here, your family has a summer home here, or you came here for camp.
