I had a great 1 hour photo shoot w/ Melissa Toledo for some new 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!

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.

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!
