FAMILY PORTRAITS

ENGAGEMENT + COUPLES

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. 

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. 


WEDDINGS

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! 

Each wedding collection also comes with a free engagement session – perfect to add another cherished moment to the album and put your mind at ease about being photographed on the big day.

FAMILY PORTRAITS

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. And you’re more than welcome to bring along the family furbaby!

Parents – I know the stress that you might be feeling at the thought of bringing the kids along to a family shoot. Worry not! I come prepared with lots of distractions for the kids, with games to play, toys, and even candy to bribe (if bribery is your thing!). And alongside my camera, I’ll also bring along a bluetooth speaker so we can all jam out and have fun.

engagements + couples

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!

Not engaged, but still want a couple’s session? Let’s do it.

Frequently Asked Questions

01.

What do we wear?

My no.1 suggestion is to dress comfortably, because when you’re comfortable, you feel much more relaxed. For group photos, pick 3-4 colors for contrast so you’re not too matchy-matchy. Moms – I recommend choosing your outfit first, and basing everyone else’s off of yours. 

05.

Can I bring an outfit change?

Of course!

04.

Why do I need to sign a contract?

To give you a clear outline of the process, and to protect me, my images, my business, and my portfolio!

06.

What’s your turnaround time?

For family and engagement shoots, 3-4 weeks. For weddings, 8 weeks. 

03.

Can I bring the family pet?

Absolutely! Just message me beforehand so I know to expect the furbaby! 

08.

Can we bring our own props?

You sure can – anything that you feel would show off your personality in the photographs, feel free to bring along.

02.

I’m feeling a little nervous about having my picture taken. Do you have any advice? 

It’s normal to feel nervous. Just remember, I’m here to make the session work for you. I’m pretty darn great at bringing people out of their shell! We’ll have a good chat before, and I’m happy to answer all of your questions about the process – big or small!

Heck yes! And make sure to tag Markina B. Photography, 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 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!
