KIND WORDS from our clients
"My husband and I live in DC, but planned a destination wedding in Maine. We both knew hiring a good photographer was the top of our list of wedding priorities, and we're so lucky that we were able to secure a lock in Jessica and Lyle to do our engagement and wedding shoots.
Not only were they great to work with, they were also incredibly responsive and organized. I was not only impressed with their professionalism, but also their natural eyes for great photos. We've received our wedding preview and we were completely blown away by the quality of the pictures they took. I've had several friends and family remark at the beauty and magazine quality of our photos.
I would highly recommend Fidelio Photography and am so glad they were able to cover our wedding! Totally worth every penny.”

"Jess and Lyle did our wedding at my family’s farm in Poland, ME. 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.”

"I cannot recommend Jess and Lyle highly enough. We got amazing photos but equally important was the experience that we had with them being present for some incredibly important, intimate moments with us. Their photos speak for themselves -- my words can't even do them justice -- but on top of that is just how extraordinarily professional, consistent, and absolutely lovely they are as people. We almost didn't want to hire a wedding photographer because we worried about feeling uncomfortable having our pictures taken all day, or having someone with an imposing personality telling us what to do in front of the camera or in the room for special, private, once-in-a-lifetime moments...but I fell in love with Jess and Lyle's artistic style and their personalities could not have been further from all of the fears that I had! They were ready to tailor their approach to how we wanted to feel on our wedding day and to let us feel natural and comfortable in front of the camera. Jess has such a calm and reassuring presence, which I just can't express how important that is now that I've experienced a wedding day. They both went with the flow no matter if we were running behind schedule or if there was a change in plans. We had a ton of fun with them doing engagement photos and portraits, they gave us just enough guidance while just letting us be ourselves in front of the camera. Their approach to the engagement shoot was also really nice as they had the intention of getting to know us and helping us get comfortable in front of the camera. All of my worries about feeling uncomfortable were never an issue thanks to their approach, and it was so worth it to have a collection of breathtaking photos of our wedding day.”

"I'm an artist, so the photography for our wedding was SO important to me. As soon as I saw Fidelio's website I was so blown away by how creative and unique each photo was. No two weddings looked the same and each candid moment was captured so beautifully. The wedding day goes by so fast and the photos are the only thing that lasts forever. Jess and Lyle did an absolutely perfect job preserving our day. Looking back at our photos takes me right back to our wedding day. We cannot thank you two enough!”

"My husband, a creative producer who is quite picky about artistic talent, searched for wedding photographers in the Northeast area for what felt like an eternity and finally stumbled upon Jessica and Lyle's website. We were completely blown away by their past work and eye for stylized shots. We could NOT be happier that we were able to book them for our summer wedding in Casco Bay. They were so great to work with and made everything on the big day so easy. We both tend to shy away from staged photography and like more candid shots but Jessica and Lyle were so quick to pick up on that and gave us exactly what we were looking for! The photos were gorgeous and fun - they managed to capture our personalities perfectly! Would 100% work with them again!"
— AMANDA & PATRICK, AUGUST 2017
"The moments captured on our special day were truly spectacular! In admittedly our least favorite weather, Jess and Lyle were able to masterfully chronicle the event from every angle and in vivid detail. Ava and I both agreed that having two photographers yielded the best possible result. Their attention to our interests leading up to the day gave us great confidence. We've repeatedly been through the album with the impossible task of choosing favorites. In addition to their talents we're lucky enough to create a relationship with an incredible pair of individuals. We'll never be able to thank Fidelio Photography enough for the amazing experience.”
— NATE & AVA, OCTOBER 2016
“I am speechless and moved to tears by these photos. They are stunning and I am probably going to have to chill with how many I order. Thank you guys again. You are both extremely talented at what you do and we are the lucky ones!”
— LIZ & JOE, AUGUST 2017
“I found Jessica and Lyle by chance for our small Portland elopement. I am so glad we did. They were AMAZING to work with, so nice and we felt comfortable to be us. I am floored at how we look in the photos. I am so happy with the initial preview photos we have received and cannot wait to get the rest!"
— ALEX & PATRICK, JUNE 2017
“There are no words, PJ and I are literally speechless. ALL of the photos are AH-MAZING! We have never seen a wedding album like this before, especially the family photos, it is so unique. You guys are tremendously talented and we can't thank you enough for all the hard work and hours you put into this.”
— JULIA & PJ, DECEMBER 2015
"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.”
— LAYLA & STEVE, AUGUST 2014
"From the engagement photos on a beach in Maine to the reception in Cambridge, MA, 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 while still being intimate, telling our personal story and capturing all the love of the day. Unscripted, emotional and unique describe the images they captured.”
— HAL & JACKIE, NOVEMBER 2014
"These pictures are so incredibly beautiful! You and Lyle have given us such a special way to relive these moments! I am struggling to find the right words to actually explain how my heart feels going through them. I don't think the words actually exist! It is so fun to be able to go through them together--we see something new in each shot every time! We couldn't be more thankful that you and Lyle were able to capture these moments so beautifully. It's absolutely incredible!”
— LIZ & BRIAN, JULY 2016
"Fidelio Photography provided us with images that immediately conjure up all of the memories, moments and feelings that comprised our wedding day. 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 the reactions of family and friends and even elements of the 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.”
