Minnesota Family & Wedding Photographer

Capturing timeless weddings and family moments

Photographs that won’t feel outdated in 20 years

I don’t use trendy filters or editing techniques on my images – only true-to-life colors will do! The emotion and connection is what matters, and I don’t want anything to distract from that. So when you look at your images in 20 years, they won’t feel outdated – they’ll be as bright, colorful, and full of emotion as the day they were taken.

Hey! I’m  Markina

Central Minnesota wedding photographer

A city girl living in the country (though at heart I belong on the beach!), fan of Mexican food, margaritas with friends, and experiencing all the wonderful things that life has to offer.  

I’ve been behind the lens, capturing timeless moments, since 2012.

As a mom and a wife, I know how priceless it is to have photographs that take you back in time and make you feel as though you’re experiencing those special moments all over again.

When you work with me, I make sure that your session is as fun and relaxed as possible, to truly capture all of the special connections between you and your loved ones – whether that’s on your wedding day, to celebrate your engagement, or for an updated family portrait with the little ones!

Classic, colorful, true-to-life, and full of love. That’s my style! 


Yours too? Get in touch!

Weddings

It’s not just your love that shines on the big day, but the love of all of your surrounding family and friends, too! With a second shooter in every MBP wedding session, you’ll never have to worry about missing a thing – every last drop of joy from your big day will be captured and preserved for you to look back on for years to come. 

Engagement & Couples

Whether you're newly engaged and want a standalone engagement shoot, or you’re a couple looking for some new personality-packed pics together, let’s celebrate your love! I’ll be on hand to help you prepare for the day and relax in front of the camera so that you can have fun with your shoot. 

Family Portraits

As parents, haven’t we all wished we could stop time? Well, I can’t do that, but I can capture a special moment in time with a family portrait. And you’re welcome to bring along the family furbaby, too!

"She took beautiful photos that we will cherish forever!"

Markina was amazing to work with and did an outstanding job. I've always been the type of person that gets nervous about taking photos. Markina put us both at ease and made the entire process fun and relaxing. She took beautiful photos that we will cherish forever! The price was affordable and included free engagement photos and a USB drive of all of our edited digital images. I could not have been more thrilled with the outcome! I would recommend Markina for any of your photography needs!

"Markina captured our day beautifully"

She made sure to get photos of the big events as well as small details. I appreciated that she was so organized for the formal family portraits. She even offered to take additional formal photos for our extended family, after the official wedding portraits were done. And, I appreciated Markina’s wisdom in knowing how to schedule our day – she was super-organized and made it easy for us to relax and just enjoy. Markina B Photography just really went above and beyond. Highly recommended!
