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.

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!

April 16, 2015 in Weddings

Hi everyone! Pardon my absence from the interwebs the past two weeks. Sadly, I got sick, and then the week after that, I was out and about with another project with me doubling for a certain famous boxing fighter. More to come with that.

Before all that happened, I was honored and grateful to photograph the wedding day of Michelle and Shannon (that cute couple I featured here a few weeks ago with their E-session). What I love most about these two (and all my couples) are how down to earth, open, friendly, and downright fun to be around during a full wedding day! I guess you can say that I’ve been blessed with some really cool couples :) For these two, it was a doubly awesome day, as not only do I know them really well,  but I know a lot of their families and friends, making the day all that more fun to photograph.

Here’s a glimpse of some of the moments and memories from their wedding day. The ceremony took place at their alma mater, Cal State L.A., and their reception at the Empress Harbor Restaurant in Monterey Park. The wedding venue was especially great as it took place in one of the music school’s theaters! One of my favorite places!

Oh, and after the vows were made, the entire wedding party, led by Michelle and Shannon, did a wrestling pose – what?!!! Awesome-sauce!!! Both sets of families did it too during the formals, grandmas included. See, gotta love great couples ;p

Enjoy!
