Palermo Photo’s eponymous Maria Palermo dedicates herself to reflecting the happiness of individuals, couples, and families in candid, modern photographs. After scheduling an appointment, an unlimited number of subjects congregate at a pre-chosen location, such as a spacious living room or the verdant gardens of an unsuspecting neighbor, where Maria then snaps smiling and thoughtful visages. The session manifests into 20 4”x6” prints and 25 holiday greeting cards, which customers can hand out to the first 25 people who correctly answer an It’s A Wonderful Life trivia question. Images can be burned onto a CD for an additional price.
After honing a style rich with photojournalistic perspectives and romantic flair, Maria Palermo founded Palermo Photo to dedicate her talents to the memories of others. Whether creating portraits to build a modeling portfolio, memorializing an engagement with a couples' shoot, or capturing a bride as she tearfully walks audiences through a PowerPoint presentation of her vows, Maria ensures her images are magazine-worthy. In fact, so many have recognized her talent that she earned The Knot's "Hall of Fame" award in 2016 as well as The Knot's Best of Weddings Award every year since 2012. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has named her one of Pittsburgh's "50 Finest". Palermo Photo's success lies in the details. Maria composes each shot to accentuate the moment and capture her subjects' personalities through fashion-inspired poses that remain as natural and graceful as a weeping willow's runway debut.
