• Hailey Tash Photography is for couples who laugh as hard as they love. A little bit playful and a lot romantic, Maine wedding photographer Hailey Tash Crabtree creates images that will bring joy to you and your loved ones as you relive each incredible moment for years to come.

    Hailey Tash Photography is based in Orrington, Maine (that's right by Bangor!). Hailey and Joel happily travel throughout central, coastal, southern and midcoast Maine documenting the most amazing love stories. They are also available for weddings throughout New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Vermont, Connecticut, and beyond!

    Hailey's work has been published both locally and nationally in print publications such as Real Maine Weddings and Maine Magazine and on sites such as Style Me Pretty.

Recently, Real Maine Weddings sent a list of questions over for me to answer about Hailey Tash Photography. There were questions about how I first discovered my love for photography, what I do for fun when I’m not shooting, what my style is, and what I love about wedding photography. It’s been a while since I sat down and really took the time to answer some of these, and I have to say, doing so just reminded me why I love what I do so much. So, thank you to Real Maine Weddings for the feature and the reminder! Here’s a peek at what the feature looks like, but you can also see the full feature here.Real-Maine-weddings

Asticou-Inn-Northeast-Harbor-Maine-wedding-photographer-0001The forecast for Dani and Gibson’s wedding wasn’t promising. In fact, at one point I’m pretty sure I read that there would be downpours, thunder, and lightning all day. Dani and Gibson saw this too. While I crossed my fingers and toes that the forecast would change, Dani and Gibson decided to borrow an old Southern wedding tradition and bury a bottle of bourbon nearby at Gibson’s parent’s home. For extra luck, there were a few prayers said and maybe even a dance to keep the rain away because, why not?

Well, I’m happy to say that when Joel and I arrived on their wedding day there were only blue skies in sight for miles. The sun was out in full force, and it was probably the hottest day of the season so far. I think it’s safe to say that the bourbon thing really works!

Dani and Gibson decided to marry in Northeast Harbor where Gibson had grown up. It played an important role in their relationship (they had their first kiss on his parent’s terrace!), so it just felt right. The stunning Asticou Inn was the perfect venue for such a wonderful day.Asticou-Inn-Northeast-Harbor-Maine-wedding-photographer-0002Asticou-Inn-Northeast-Harbor-Maine-wedding-photographer-0060Asticou-Inn-Northeast-Harbor-Maine-wedding-photographer-0004Asticou-Inn-Northeast-Harbor-Maine-wedding-photographer-0062Asticou-Inn-Northeast-Harbor-Maine-wedding-photographer-0006Asticou-Inn-Northeast-Harbor-Maine-wedding-photographer-0007Asticou-Inn-Northeast-Harbor-Maine-wedding-photographer-0008Asticou-Inn-Northeast-Harbor-Maine-wedding-photographer-0009Asticou-Inn-Northeast-Harbor-Maine-wedding-photographer-0010Asticou-Inn-Northeast-Harbor-Maine-wedding-photographer-0011Asticou-Inn-Northeast-Harbor-Maine-wedding-photographer-0012Asticou-Inn-Northeast-Harbor-Maine-wedding-photographer-0013Asticou-Inn-Northeast-Harbor-Maine-wedding-photographer-0014Asticou-Inn-Northeast-Harbor-Maine-wedding-photographer-0015Asticou-Inn-Northeast-Harbor-Maine-wedding-photographer-0016Asticou-Inn-Northeast-Harbor-Maine-wedding-photographer-0018Asticou-Inn-Northeast-Harbor-Maine-wedding-photographer-0019Asticou-Inn-Northeast-Harbor-Maine-wedding-photographer-0064Asticou-Inn-Northeast-Harbor-Maine-wedding-photographer-0020Asticou-Inn-Northeast-Harbor-Maine-wedding-photographer-0021Asticou-Inn-Northeast-Harbor-Maine-wedding-photographer-0022Dani was my favorite kind of bride.
