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 THIRD week of the new year everyone! How’s it going so far? I truly hope that your holidays were filled with all the joy, family, food, and FUN that is possible. I know mine was! Heck, it feels like just yesterday that I “signed off” for 2013. I guess time does fly when you get old huh? Sigh…

Nonetheless, here we are, 2014. No flying cars or transporters a la Star Trek yet, but hey, we’ve got iPads, computer phones, and this dandy little thing we call the internet. J/K! Not to poke fun, but hey, I AM still waiting on that teleportation device!

2013 ended in it’s usual grand fashion, hanging out with family and friends, and even scored a trip to the happiest place on Earth – yup, Disneyland! Three whole days with the little rugrats and pre-teens from Hawaii. Such a great time. Despite the place being over-populated due to the Rose Bowl, National Championship Game, and vacationing families, it was a great time! Didn’t ride as many rides, but just being there was fun. I just love that place!

New year’s came and went, and for the first time in a while, I was actually sleepy when the clock struck midnight. Should’ve had that extra green tea soy latte I love so much prior to the ball dropping.

A few days after the new year, I was back at work photographing my first wedding of 2014. The amazing, fun, terrific, sweet, cool, talented Aaron and Jill! The wedding and reception took place in a downtown photo studio, complete with food trucks for the main course, AND a surprise showing of the In N’ Out burger truck! What?! You bet I had a few (it was after I was done, come on!).

In a nutshell, that was the end and the beginning of the holidays and new year. How was yours? I wish you all the best that life can give you; many smiles, much success, great food, family, and friends; exciting destinations, beautiful sunsets, the sounds of laughter, and blessings to keep you all safe.

Happy 2014 everyone. Enjoy! And thanks for checking in :)

Mike
