"Fidelio Photography provided us with images that immediately conjure up all the memories, moments, and feelings that our wedding day was comprised of. It was amazing to get our photos back and feel like we were right back in the moment! So many photos captured the love and magic that made our day unforgettable as well as the reactions of our family and friends to elements of our day that we may have missed. Wedding photography is the one thing I would advise couples to choose wisely. You are trusting one of the most important days of your life with strangers and, if you’re lucky like we were, they become close friends of yours that invest in your day and your memories as if they were their own."
-Gavin and Courtney, July 2014


"I was blown away the minute I saw Fidelio Photography's website. I felt like I knew these couples and could feel the energy of their wedding day simply from looking at their pictures. As soon as I spoke with Jessica over the phone my decision was made. On top of being so sweet, friendly and totally easy to work with, we both had the same style and vision of the way we wanted these memories captured. I was focused more on candid, natural shots along with some really unique portraits shots. Jessica and Lyle were relaxed and calming but also knew when to take charge to make sure things were sped along when needed. They lent their creative eye and expertise to make sure we got the shots we were looking for. I couldn't be happier with how all of our wedding and engagement photos came out. We got everything we wanted and then some. Jess and Lyle are truly something special. I would hire them again in a heartbeat. "

"From the engagement shoot on a beach in Maine to the reception in Cambridge, Jessica and Lyle provided us with photos that represented everything we envisioned for our wedding.  Our photos capture the urban feel of our city wedding perfectly while still being intimate, telling our personal story and capturing all of the love of the day.  Unscripted, emotional, and unique describe the images they captured.

We were lucky enough to be referred to Fidelio Photography from our friends who had just gotten married, and they raved over the experience that they had.  They told us that we could trust Jessica and Lyle with our special day, we were not disappointed.  Our photos will be cherished for a lifetime and we look forward to Fidelio Photography capturing all of the important moments in our life together in the future."

Documentary style family photography in maine & beyond

In addition to weddings we love documenting families in an unposed, raw style, sometimes for an entire day. We have been fortunate enough to travel with families to destinations like Jackson Hole, California and the Dominican Republic to document their family vacations and adventures. Contact us to get more details on these destination shoots. We also shoot a limited number of family sessions in Maine every year, perfect for families who are interested in less traditional/posed photos and are interested in a more candid style that showcases the beauty of Maine.
