Melissa Toledo has been a freelance photographer for the past six years. Originally from New York City, she currently lives in Portland, OR, with her husband, daughter, fish, and two kitties. When she’s not shooting pics, she enjoys cooking, reading and working on projects around her new house.
On a recent trip to the Grand Canyon, I was initially disappointed to learn we had arrived at the beginning of monsoon season. My first thoughts centered around me not being able to get the grand images I had my heart set on…but quickly I started to rethink my outlook.
As I looked over the rim, I saw amazing scenes, and imagery started to create itself right in front of me. I saw layers upon layers of beautiful details. And so, despite the heavy clouds and the constant rain, it was a beautiful experience and I was happy to have had the opportunity to capture the Grand Canyon my way.
