Welcome to the M Palma Photo Blog

Hi, my name is Mike, a professional wedding and portrait photographer born, raised, and based here in beautiful, Silverlake, Los Angeles, California.

On this blog, you'll find the daily inspirations, images and musings of my life.

I love photographing people, places, and anything else that catches my eye. I describe my style of photography as modern, fun, and energetic. So stay a while, check out my work, and get to know me better through my images and entries.

If you'd like to visit my main wedding and portrait site, click on this link, or click on the "connect" button up top to drop me a line via e-mail.

Like I said, stay awhile, and enjoy the entries. And please, do leave a comment. You can also follow me on Facebook and Twitter (via the icons above this paragraph) for even more up-to-date happenings (don't worry, I won't put up meager posts like "I'm standing in line at Starbucks" (my favorite coffee spot!). Only the really cool and important stuff!)

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy August everyone! Hope everyone is having an august August! (I recently learned the other definition of “august”, and it works quite well with a lot of things, so look it up!)

Yes, once again, it’s catching-up time. Had a few gigs in July that took up a lot of my time. Two amazing weddings with two awesome sauce couples! That and I lived through two weeks of monsoonal weather which made for very uncomfortable days and nights, but who’s complaining?!

As you know, I love photographing weddings. As I’ve mentioned before, I love the fact that I get to create some wonderful imagery for my couples to share and pass down from generation to generation. Plus, I get to work with amazing people, both the couple, and those involved, like their family members, friends, and vendors who are all there to help make the day special. I’ve been blessed so far with working with some downright cool people, rightfully so, as my couples are the ones who select and hire them, and my couples are pretty much rock stars :) BTW, one of my grooms really is a rock-star! He played a mean electric guitar for his new bride during the reception (see below!). Oh, did mention that one of my couples also had their brother/puppeteer officiate their wedding? See below again!

For the two weddings that I photographed, the same held true. I had such a great time, that sometimes, I forget that I’m working! (Plus, the desserts are usually pretty amazing as well!) I love my wedding couples and their family and friends, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Okay, enough gushing about my clients/friends. Here are some images. Enjoy!!!
