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 ten years ago! We’ve been photographing weddings together since 2010 and married since 2012.
We're HUGE animal lovers. We both gasp in excitement every single time we see a dog and sob over animal movies. We have four rescues-- three cats and a Husky. It can be a little overwhelming at times!
I studied creative writing in college and love to write stories and songs. I have one song on iTunes and Spotify, and hope to have more in the next year. I also read a lot of autobiographies and YA lit. Joel has a journalism background and is a regular contributor to Down East Magazine. He got to tag along on a ghost hunt for a story once! I'm still jealous. He also happens to love watching wrestling and the Celtics.
When we’re not photographing weddings, we’re probably at home hanging out with our pets, watching Vanderpump Rules or One Tree Hill (sorry Joel!), or jetting off to Salem, Massachusetts to enjoy a little history and some of the best cider ever (Far From the Tree!).
