Hailey & Joel

We’re Hailey & Joel Crabtree, a husband and wife wedding photography duo. Our goal is to provide a mixture of fun and intimate candid photographs and lightly-posed portraits that tell our clients’ story authentically. We also love showcasing the many different landscapes of Maine and New England.

We are located in Orrington, Maine (near Bangor), but happily travel throughout Maine, New England, and beyond.

Our work has been featured on Style Me Pretty, and in Seacoast Weddings, Maine Magazine, Real Maine Weddings, WellWed, and First for Women.


Hey there! I’m Hailey, the head photographer at Hailey & Joel. I started the business (formerly known as Hailey Tash Photography) back in 2010 while I was studying creative writing and Communication Sciences & Disorders at the University of Maine. Photography had been a hobby since my dad bought me an old Nikon at age ten, and I finally decided to pursue photography full time after graduation. I love telling stories, so photography always felt very natural to me.

When I’m not behind the camera, I’m usually writing songs or working on my Young Adult novel, snuggling with our husky, Tasha, or watching endless amounts of One Tree Hill on Netflix. I also love to travel with Joel and check out cool coffee shops and microbreweries.



Hi, I’m the Joel half of the equation. I’ve been Hailey’s second photographer since day one. I have a background in journalism, which has naturally seeped into our work. I see each wedding as a story, and like a true reporter or documentarian, it’s my job to capture the emotion and excitement that comes from that day in still photos.

When I’m not shooting weddings, I enjoy movies, writing, and craft beer.
