Client Testimonials:


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.

Melissa took amazing shots of me for a business portfolio.


At first I was skeptical since I am not photogenic at all. However when it came time to narrow the final shots down to several best choices, I loved every single photo!
Melissa has a truly amazing talent of making you feel comfortable and capturing the essence of your personality through her magical lens. My LinkedIn photo was taken by Melissa!
Melissa is more than highly recommended!

Melissa is awesome to work with! Her event photography is truly exceptional.


She's also quick to respond to messages and consistently meets deadlines.
I've been working with her on a monthly basis for the past year and it has been nothing short of a delightful experience.
We've been able to use her work to promote numerous events of ours, and we couldn't be more grateful to have her on our event team. Melissa is a gem.

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.

Melissa is that rare, thoughtful, hungry talent you want on your side.


I worked with Melissa to shoot a prototype product on a very limited budget. What she brought was a brilliant, diligent, tireless effort to figure out the problem and deliver exactly what I was looking for.
Before you go into production, no matter the size, you’ll need a nimble, powerful talent to deliver. Melissa delivers awesome.

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!

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.

​I had a great 1-hr photo shoot w/ Melissa for some new shots.


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!
