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.

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 Tuesday everyone! I am so excited to share with you all this past weekend’s engagment-session taken at “the most joyous location on the planet “. (Due to certain copyright issues, I can’t really say where these were taken, but let’s say that a lot of people go there and it’s fun. ‘Nuff said!)

First off, I want to extend a HUGE thank you to the newly engaged couple – Crystal and Mark, for asking me to photograph their session. Mark and I worked together on our production of “Ordinary Days” earlier this year, and from the first moment I met him, I knew that he was one of the coolest guys I could ever meet, let alone work with. And now that he’s engaged to his equally “wow-tastic” fiance Crystal, here’s to a future power couple indeed! 

I really enjoyed hanging out with these two, who were not only a beautiful and handsome couple, but game for any type of shot I could suggest. And for that, thank you again guys!

On with the photos!
Rockstars. Seriously. 
Mark rockin’ it out GQ style. 
Tell me that Crystal’s shoes DON’T rock – I dare you!
It was like this all afternoon – fun and laughter. Seriously! :) 
This photo cracks me up EVERY TIME. 
Absolutely LOVE this photograph. 
And there you have it :) An awesome, fun-filled afternoon with a great couple. I couldn’t ask for nicer people to be around for such an amazing day of shooting. Thanks to the “secret location”, you know, “the most joyous location on the planet” for their gorgeous backgrounds and hospitality :) 

Congratulations again on your engagement guys! I couldn’t be happier for both of you :)

All the best!
