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!

Aloha everyone! We’re finally back from the islands of Aloha, and quite frankly, I’m missing it very much :( There’s something about Hawaii, whether it be the people, the environment, the weather, the water, food, etc. I could never get enough of it. It’s such a 360 degree change from life in L.A. that it’s difficult to get back into the groove of L.A. living.

The purpose of my trip there was to photograph my friend Blythe’s wedding on the island of Kauai, my first time there. Needless to say it was such a beautiful wedding, filled with so much emotion and happiness. It was a small wedding of about 60 of their closest family and friends which made for such a memorable day. Congrats to Blythe and John on their wedding, and thanks so much for having me photograph it :) Love, love, LOVE my work!

The rest of the time was spent on the island of Oahu, doing the touristy stuff, and eating to our heart’s content :) Couple that with swimming everyday in the waters of Waikiki, and exploring the island on foot, ATV and car, makes for a fantastic vacation. Did I mention the food? Oh yeah, I did! We don’t eat the way we ate there (3 square/solid meals a day!), and although it was amazingly terrific, we’re definitely paying for our gluttony as we speak via the pounds we packed on. It was worth it though.

So here is a slice of some of our most memorable moments in the islands. Aloha and mahalo Hawaii. Till we meet again :)
