Oh, Hey! I'm Nova

i'm so happy you're here!

Grab a coffee or a glass of wine, and let's get to know each other a little better. K, I'll go first...

Hi! I’m Nova (she/her), owner of Nova Markina Photography. I am so happy you're here.

I would love to capture your cherished memories, beautifully and authentically for you to embrace and relive forever.

I am not just a photographer, but a capturer of your most beloved memories. With a mission to provide a safe and inclusive atmosphere that celebrates all individuals regardless of their diversities. You will always be welcomed here.

I find beauty in the simple things, such as a perfect latte, contagious laughter, and the spark of true love. With softness, simplicity, and a big heart, I would be honoured to be a part of your special day. I long to fill my life with the greatest pleasures, such as travel, taking pictures around the world, and giving my full commitment to my life’s passion; photographing that moment of intense, true, and deep love that happens when a couple promises to cherish each other for a lifetime.
 
I’m a believer in love at first sight, laughing until I cry, and crying until I laugh, and my heartfelt belief in love and joy expresses itself through my chosen medium, photography. I specialize in digital and film photography to ensure I capture every special second of your wedding perfectly, and I’ve worked internationally with a variety of diverse clients to bring their dreams to life with photographs.
 
I’m a boutique wedding photographer that customizes each couples photography experience but who also celebrates each duo regardless of expression, education, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender or abilities to provide the perfect photos to highlight this important day. With an eye for detail and a heart for the most simple and beautiful moments, I will put love into each print to ensure you have photos to treasure for a lifetime.
 
Though I do use cameras, film, paper, and flashes to construct my photos, I am just a medium for which your beautiful moments come through. With passion, heart, love, and grace, I attempt to translate these feelings into portraits you can hold close to your heart for a lifetime, and always recall the memories of this beautiful day for the rest of your life. Allow me not only to bear witness to the radiance and allure of your most exquisite, memorable day, but to record love’s spell for all time, and in that perfect moment, capture a significant, if brief, period of your life that will always resonate, bewitch, and beguile you every time you thumb through your wedding album or glance at your framed wedding photo.

xoxo,
Nova
