hi! My name is Maria Palermo.

I am a photographer, dog mom, baked goods enthusiast and a lover of all things wedding!   

Your wedding is more than just a collection of photographs. It’s a story of your love. And I’m here to capture that story in all of its romantic glory.  Working with Palermo Photo is like having a best friend with killer organizational skills capturing every incredible moment 


I’ve been to a lotttttttttttttt of weddings.

This has resulted in my obsession with the Timeline (with a capital T). When we start to lose track of time during your day, what do you think is the first thing to get cut? Not the cutting of the cake. Not the first dance. It’s your photo time.  

Through experience, I know when the timeline is most likely to fly out of control.  I want to help you to make sure this doesn’t happen so I tend to be very involved in the planning of your wedding timeline. I don’t just show up day of your wedding--in the months leading up to your wedding we will work side by side to ensure we have a realistic and well-thought out picture of the day.  Your priorities become my priorities--give me all the updates!  If I know what you consider to be those mandatory photo musts - those unforgettable moments - then I can make sure they are captured.


From start to finish she was absolutely amazing to work with. Laura & Ryan
