WELCOME TO FIDELIO PHOTOGRAPHY
We are a husband and wife team who have been photographing weddings in Maine and the New England area (and beyond) for 13 years. Throughout the years one of the biggest compliments that we have received continually from clients is how comfortable we make them feel and helpful we are on the wedding day. We value our relationships with our clients and even now, 13 years into this, we are still friends with many of our former clients and have watched as their lives have grown and changed and these are relationships that we truly value. It is an honor for us to document your wedding day and we love embedding ourselves in the day and blending in with your family/friends. We’d love to show you more of our work and see if we might be a good fit as your wedding photographers! -Jess & Lyle
IMAGES THAT CAPTURE HOW IT FELT
We love telling stories through compelling images, using the beauty of natural light. Our style mixes photojournalism with fine art--capturing 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.
what our clients are saying about working with us
“Jess and Lyle did our wedding at my family’s farm in Poland, Maine. Not only did they perfectly capture the magic of the day, but they also tuned right into the magic of this place that I have loved so dearly for my whole life. The pictures are beyond perfect and I will treasure them for always. In addition to being incredibly talented and professional photographers, they are also easy to work with, flexible, super nice, etc. So yeah, they are basically a dream.” -Zach & Conz
AUTHENTIC, NATURAL, UNPOSED IMAGES
Our style is very laid back and documentary so we are always watching for the moments between the moments at any photo session or wedding we're doing. These are the little things that are never planned and you may not even realize they're happening but later help to tell the story and contribute to the mood of the day. Instead of putting people in awkward poses we give some direction and capture you in a natural, authentic way.
FEATURES & AWARDS
TIMELESS, EVOCATIVE PHOTOGRAPHS
Our goal is to deliver images that evoke the same emotions when you look at them as you felt on the wedding day. Our photographs have a bit of a film feel without being overdone or using trendy filters that will be outdated in a few years, so they'll still look classic and beautiful 50+ years from now.
