Minnesota Family & Wedding Photographer

gallery one


Congrats on your engagement! I’ve photographed over 100 weddings now, but they’re still one of the most joyful events to photograph. They RADIATE with love – from you and your surrounding family & friends. Of course, you want everything to go smoothly on the day – you’ve had it planned for months now, if not years. With me, you don't have to worry that your photographer isn't catching every moment as it happens. I always bring along a second shooter, so we’ve got every shot covered –
 the candid, the posed, the romantic, and the light-hearted!

Time flies so fast when you’re a parent! Family portraits are an excellent way to press pause on time and celebrate every bit of joy that comes with being a family. My portraits don't just capture your connection as a whole. I capture the relationship between each individual family member, with a mixture of posed, silly, and candid shots.

Engagement sessions are included in each wedding collection, but if you have other plans for your wedding and want a standalone session to celebrate your engagement, this is for you. 
My favorite part about shooting couple photos is when the guard goes down and the love and excitement comes out. Shot around sunset with a mixture of posed and candid images, with the option to bring along your own props, we’ll make your session a breeze of romance, laughter, and a whole lot of personality!

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!

"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!
