Maine Wedding Photographers | Documentary, fine art wedding and engagement photography by husband/wife team Jessica Weiser and Lyle Koehnlein


Welcome! We are Jessica Weiser and Lyle Koehnlein, award-winning, husband wife team of Maine wedding and engagement photographers who have worked in Portland and throughout New England together for the last 12 years. We love telling stories through compelling images, using the beauty of natural light. Our style mixes photojournalism/editorial with fine art--capturing the authentic moments, details, portraits and landscapes in a creative and documentary way. 

One of our greatest strengths is bringing out the personality of each unique wedding through our work with photographs that make you feel like you were in that moment.  Over the years many of our clients have also become our friends which are relationships that we really value, many returning to us later for maternity or family portraits. Our laid back approach helps people feel comfortable--which is important on such an intimate day. We have been told many times that we also provide a calming, helpful presence throughout the day.

I was blown away the minute I saw Fidelio Photography’s website. I felt like I knew these couples and I could feel the energy of their wedding day simply by looking at their pictures. As soon as I spoke with Jessica on the phone my decision was made. On top of being 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. Jess and Lyle were totally relaxed and calming but also knew when to take charge to make sure things sped along when needed. They lent their creative eyes and expertise to make sure we got what we were looking for. I couldn’t be happier with how all our engagement and wedding photos turned out. We got everything we were looking for and then some. Jess and Lyle are truly something special. I would hire them again in a heartbeat.
