• Nora Gedgaudas, Author - event photography
Not only is Melissa exceedingly professional, reliable and personable--but she is one talented photographer. Her pictures were creatively composed and simply gorgeous! I cannot recommend her services enough.

• Brian Votaw, Creative Director - commercial photography
As a Creative Director I've hired Melissa Toledo for several hi-end jobs to shoot product, apparel lay-downs, model photos and videos. She's my go-to photographer because she is professional, creative, and efficient. Highly recommended.

Working with Melissa was GREAT! I was looking for a photographer for my company photos who was easy to work with, creative and professional. Melissa was just that! She has a very creative eye for photography and I recommend contacting her for your next photo shoot! Cheers!

• Ana Dugan, Aveda Institute Portland - portrait shoot
Melissa is a extremely talented photographer! She has a keen eye for quality and is one of the fun, most laid back photographers I have had the pleasure of working with. She maintains professionalism while ensuring your comfort before, during, and after the shoot. One cannot go wrong when enlisting Melissa's talents, whether its low key, business, or glamour - I have yet to see a photo from her that doesn't increase the desire to see even more of her work!

• Bill Johnson - actor headshot shoot
I had a great 1 hour photo shoot w/ Melissa Toledo for some new head shots that I needed. I'd already checked out her website and just knew she was the right one for the job. Contacted her and very quickly booked a next day appt. She's a total professional. Right on time for our appt..She took extra time to get the lighting right and was very easy to work with. Melissa was very helpful with wardrobe choices and provided me with almost too many choices for my final pictures. I would highly recommend Melissa Toledo for your next photo shoot. Great job!

• Evonne De La Fuente - actress portrait shoot
Had an awesome experience with Melissa, she is incredibly professional & a complete pleasure to work with! My photos came out amazing!!! Thank you soo much and I look forward to working with you again.

• Kirsty Lampi - family portrait shoot
Melissa is amazing! She captured us! All three of us, a high energy little boy, his oh-so-want to be grown up sister, and very tired mom! All three of us with very different skin tones. She was less about what we wore and more about who we were. The pictures are real and our personalities just fall out of them! Love the pics! Love Melissa!

• Brittany Walsh, Performer, Wanderlust Circus - portrait shoot
I had such a great experience working with Melissa!! Not being a professional model, she helped me to feel comfortable working in front of the camera and was able to capture many incredible moments from our shoot together. She has an amazing eye and gift for photography, and any company, model, or other artist would be very lucky to have the opportunity to work with her.

• Keri Atkins, Plus-Size Model - portrait shoot
I've been lucky enough to work with Melissa Toledo a few times, and every single photoshoot went amazing. She's super fun to be around, easy to work with, and makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera. She also has a great eye: I loved every image I received!

• Haydenn Harper - model shoot
It's rare when I meet a photographer that knows what they're doing and gives constructive criticism. Melissa is one of those photographers! She knows what makes a good photo and directly tells models how they can improve in the shoot. And most importantly, I felt completely comfortable working with her so my photos came out better. I'm glad I got to work with her!

• Matthew Alan - model shoot
First off, Melissa is one of the sweetest, funniest photographers I have yet to work with. She is intelligent using the camera, as well as guiding others while they are shooting. She knows exactly what she wants from her models and gives them great direction. As a result, the final product turns out AMAZING. I HIGHLY recommend using Melissa for any of your photography needs!

• Jade Barker - model shoot
Melissa is professional and accommodating. I felt at ease with her behind the camera and appreciated her direction and perspective. The images are soft and strong all at the same time. I have never had a photographer capture me so well. I would work with Melissa again in a heart beat!

• Fida Hurlock - model shoot
Melissa you were so professional to work with. I love your style and approaches to achieving the perfect look for the most amazing pictures!
