My work is all about capturing life's moments as they happen. My photographic style is a combination of beautiful candid photojournalism fused with traditional but natural poses to provide clients with vivid and lasting memories that are true to the spirit and feeling of the moment, the person, and the message.

Fabulous Wedding Photography!

We had Maria Palermo of Palermo Photo photograph our wedding in June 2019. She was absolutely wonderful, from start to finish! I wasn't sure I wanted engagement photos, but she included them in our package, and I am SO glad she did! They were the best photos I have ever seen of my husband and I (we haven't received our wedding ones yet! :)). She even went to an out of town location to do them. She customized our entire day to make posed shots a much smaller portion of it, and focused on candid. I give her my highest recommendation!

5-11-19 Wedding

I was immediately drawn to Maria because of her outstanding portfolio, but our first conversation solidified that she was the perfect fit for my wedding. She was organized and confident while also being fun and silly. My husband and I are not the most comfortable in front of the camera, but at our engagement shoot, Maria made us feel comfortable within minutes. She kept us laughing and laid back the whole shoot. When it came to our big day she kept everything organized and relaxed. I have never seen some capture emotion as raw as Maria does! Our pictures turned out better than I could've imagined and we will cherish them forever!

Amazing experience!

Working with Maria made wedding planning fun and stress free!! She is a complete professional who knows the wedding planning process inside and out. She helped us not only come up with a timeline based on what we wanted but helped us stick to it on our wedding day! She got us the photos that we will cherish for a lifetime. Originally, we did not want engagement photos but an engagement shoot was included in our package. Getting to know Maria and her getting to know us at the engagement shoot was SO helpful when it came to knowing what poses/pics we liked so that we could better plan for our wedding. I highly recommend doing the engagement shoot! Maria is a sweet, kind, and easy going person that is receptive to individual preferences without losing any of her amazing style and touches. Her photos are to die for and you will NEVER regret choosing Palermo Photo as your wedding photographer!!!
