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.

I’m a wine lover. Joel’s a beer guy. I love dogs. Joel’s obsessed with cats. I get sucked into TV shows with way too many seasons (Hello, One Tree Hill!). Joel would much rather watch movies. I could go on, but let’s just say there’s a good balance in our house.

When we’re not photographing weddings, we’re hanging out with our rescue pets. We have a Husky and three cats. It gets a little crazy at times. I also love to write stories and songs and read Young Adult novels. Joel writes as well, and is a regular contributor to Down East Magazine.

About Our Work

The business started in 2010 as Hailey Tash Photography. We changed the name last year since we’ve always been Hailey & Joel to our clients. It just felt right!

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.

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.
