Minnesota Family & Wedding Photographer

Hey! I’m  Markina

Southern 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!

It’s not just your love that shines on your big day, but the love of all of your family and friends, too!

With a second shooter in every MBP wedding collection, 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 session, 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 to help you feel at ease in front of the camera. Let's capture some print worthy magic!

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 is absolutely amazing!! She is very organized, social, creative and easy to work with. She did our engagement and wedding photos and it was wonderful knowing she was in charge and we did not have to worry about managing any of the small details because she was always on the ball. All of her photos have turned out amazing, we continue to get compliments on them to this day and they are something we've become very proud of. Can't recommend Markina enough!

"Markina is beyond talented! Her photos are perfection"

Markina is beyond talented! Her photos are perfection, absolutely beautiful. She is the sweetest, kindest person ever. She’s very responsive to messages and the investment you pay for photos is extremely affordable. She will always be our family photographer. I would recommend her to anyone!

"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!
