    My organization hired Melissa to shoot photos for an art exhibit, including a floor-to-ceiling wall graphic. Melissa was wonderful to work with. The whole process was smooth from start to finish, she made our subjects feel comfortable, and the photographs turned out truly stunning. I hope I have a reason to work with Melissa again in the future! Highly recommend her.

    As a Creative Director I’ve hired Melissa for several hi-end jobs to shoot products, apparel lay-downs, model photos and videos. She is my go-to photographer when I need the job done professionally and efficiently. Highly recommended.

    Working with Melissa to create my new headshots was incredibly fun! She had great feedback and guidance to help me get the best images, and the results are amazing! Melissa is incredibly professional, had great turnaround time and is wonderful to work with. Within hours of posting my new headshots on various casting sites, I was offered two jobs! Thank you, Melissa! I will definitely be calling you any time I need any professional photographs.

    Working with Melissa Toledo is a very positive experience. I do NOT like to have my picture taken, at all, but I needed to get a headshot for work. She made me feel very comfortable and was able to direct me how to pose so that she could get the best shot. She is very friendly and professional and I ended up having a lot of fun. Morever, I was completely thrilled with the results. I will gladly seek out Melissa's services next time I need a headshoet, as well as recommend her to all my colleagues and friends. Thanks, Melissa!

    I had used Melissa for a one hour photo shoot downtown, via a groupon. she made the whole photo thing very easy and comfortable. I highly recommend her at her regular rates as the Groupon left me feeling guilty!

    Highly recommend for her talent and skills.

    After researching online and loving her work, I reached out to Melissa to request a photo shoot for my work portfolio (e.g. emails, LinkedIn, pending website) as I was on a job hunt. I'm not big on professional photos as I don't feel comfortable in an artificial setting, however, she did a great job making me feel comfortable!

    Considering I can turn into a statue for such a shoot, I really appreciated her suggestions on poses and posture as it helped me feel a little more giddy and relaxed. I really loved her approach in selecting photos and having an inside/outside option. I used one of the photos from our job hunt during my applications and did snag a job. For getting one's foot in the door, I think a first impression is really important and a photograph can be a part of that. Thank you, Melissa!

    I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a highly talented photographer for their portfolio, professional shoot, etc.
