Melissa Toledo

 

I've been a Photographer for over 10-years and Toledo Images is my company. I excel at capturing candid moments, atmosphere and emotions. My specialities include Brand and Event Photography. Depending on your project's needs, it can be just me, or we can build our crew and lighting plan special for you. 
I am a Member of the Professional Photographers of America and the Oregon Professional Photographers Association.
I'm originally from New York City and now call Portland, OR my home.​
