I grew up in a multicultural society as a child of parents living in ethnically mixed, Hungarian-Slovak marriage, thanks to which I have soon realized that I have to look at things (and people) from the various perspectives. I have already been fascinated by the photography in my early years and as a teenager I have carried my first camera almost everywhere.
In 1999 I spent nearly four years in the Middle East, where the human lives and fates became a major inspiration for my photographic work. I had (and still have) a great respect for documentary, however things have changed after the events of 9.11. and I decided that I put this genre aside and look at things from the other, thus a more positive angle. So I got to the wedding and portrait photography.
At the end of 2002, I have received an offer to work in the United States where I later earned a degree in the prestigious school New York Institute of Photography. I had the opportunity to work and learn from well-known photographers such as Monte Zucker, Doug Gordon and Mark Greenberg. Today I’ve had over 15 years experience in the international market in the field of photography and design. My photos have been published in many magazines, advertising materials and many of them decorate the blank walls and wedding albums of my customers – today my friends. I am an active member of WPPI – international association of professional wedding and portrait photographers and also a member of NAPP – Association of post-production professionals. I invest into new technologies regularly and I improve my knowledge on various international trainings and conferences every year. Since the first half of year 2011 I operate one of the largest, and I believe that even one of the best photo studios in the southern Slovakia.
So if you are looking for a photographer for your wedding day and you like our photos and photography style, we would be pleased to hear from you.
Marek and I are friends for over 30 years and I am working with him for about 10 years now. Regarding our style of shooting, we are both creative and pedant so we make a great team.
Of course, the photo itself already belongs to my lifestyle and I am extremely happy that I can work in the field that interests me and is also my hobby. As a child I spent a lot of time with my mom at the store where she worked. There I have been inspired by the work with people and also arranger work, which I have even studied later. From there it was not far to the advertising and photography itself.
I’m an incurable romantic so the work of photographer is perfect for me! It’s an indescribable experience to be beside the young people when they say their “I DO”. To capture a mother who sheds tears of happiness or to perpetuate little bridesmaid who proudly takes the bride’s veil and will remember this moment through my photo for all her life…
However it’s not just a wedding for which I have deep emotions. It’s also a young family that awaits new member arrival. Sincere baby faces or a young ballet dancer that sparkles with joy when she receives her first professional portfolio.
Simply I love photos on which you can see the joy, comfort, good mood and a lot of – A LOT OF love :-)
I belong among few people, who can tell that they work is also their hobby. Originally I studied economics and I have years of experience in book keeping and administration work. After my maternity leave I chose to have a job where I could use my creative talent. I consider myself a creative person and although I only got to photographic work in 2010, I was always inspired by photography as a genre.
The birth of my daughter encouraged me to develop myself in this field. My favorite shootings are with families and kids, but I am confident to shoot wedding portraits too. Beside photo shoots I am pleased to put myself into all sorts of projects related to graphic design and retouching related jobs. I successfully completed a web design course in 2015, where I gained a lot of experience in creating websites and various graphic elements.
Already at the time whilst I was only getting to know the city of Komárno, the MJP Studio caught my attention. I started to use my experience right here at the beginning of 2016. This job fulfills me and I am pleased to work with such professionals as Marek and Suzanna.

“For the complete satisfaction of our clients we use a range of creative ideas, while we guarantee the highest image quality.”
If both of you are longing for an unforgettable memory that will share your unique story to the next generations, you are just on the right place.
The main pillar of our success is the way of communication and creative shooting technique which is known for its ease, casualness and touch for the detail where quality takes precedence over quantity. We emphasise on the quality of the photos and we try to capture the wedding day so that the final result will come alive in the form of a unique romantic story. Additional numbers of side photos therefore are taken as positive factor, rather than a condition.
In order to maintain the high quality of our work we limit the number of weddings per year for up to 25.
Usually every wedding couple has set different financial resources from which the choices of wedding services will derive. Based on current requirements we offer 5 concessional packages. The content of each Wedding package includes the actual shooting and about a week of postproduction work. Packages do not include printed (paper) photos! DVD media contains quality optimized pictures in HD resolution so the printing is guaranteed up to a poster size. We also offer the design and production of Exclusive Wedding Albums. More information can be found here.
Regarding available dates and prices of wedding packages please contact us via e-mail. At the first contact please state your name, contact details (phone + email), date and place of the wedding.

Exclusive photobooks are bound by hand. Inner pages of the album consists of photos made by classic RA- 4 chemical process on Kodak Endura Supra professional photopaper. The surface of pages may be glossy, matte, silk or metallic. This professional photopaper ensures the highest visual quality with a lifetime of over 100 years. UV protection is applied on all the pages of the photobook, which prevents fading and adhesion of the pages in case they come in contact with liquid. Thickness and hardness of the pages is 300g to 700g (approx. 1,5 mm) and therefore they are protected against creasing and other mechanical damage . Each double-page is printed on a seamless piece of paper which results in monolithic surface with no photo interruption in the middle section. Inner corners of photobooks can be a classic square or arched.
We offer 7 basic dimensions of photobooks but we can also produce atypical photobooks of up to 40x100cm in size.

Deluxe type album mesures between 20x30cm and 30x30cm and includes 20-30 selfadhesive pages for up to 100 photographs.
Kids & Family
Kids are generally very active and they get tired early during the shootings, so it is very difficult to keep them in one place. To reach the best photographs, our aim is to take as many pictures as possible in the least time possible. Family and kids photos are taken indoors and outdoors too. A photo session with new born babies can also undertake place in home environment.
Photographs of expecting mothers, couples and new born babies are very popular nowadays. Pregnancy is a special time in a woman’s life and this is one of the main reasons why they wish to have the progress of pregnancy documented in photographs too. We ca help them to remember each moths of the pregnancy a different way. It is great to have all those memories so if you would like to have the most wonderful artistic pictures taken of you, please come and visit us.
A few good advices
* Please make an appointment 3-4 weeks before the actual shooting, especially if you are expecting the little one in the spring or summer, because in the wedding season our professionals are very busy.
* It is the best to plan these kinds of shootings for the seventh or eighth months of the pregnancy, when the belly is nicely seen, curling up already and it is still comfortable to pose.
* Bring along small baby shoes, socks or small toys that you bought for your little one already.
Making an appointment
It is important for us that you make your appointment in time, so we can be well prepared.
Even if you made your appointment by calling in, we appreciate a short personal meeting with all our clients. It is nothing formal, just to be able to talk over the actual details, settings and location in case you require outdoor shootings. We can advice you what bring or what to leave at home.
It depends on various orders, but the shooting is usually done in between 30 and 60 minutes. During this time we make plenty of beautiful pictures.
Processing and editing
The next 5 to 7 days your photographs will go trough digital processing, which means that we cut them and adjust the color effects. After this we arrange them to a privet folder what we call Clients Album and the link and the password for you to be able to open this folder will be sent to an e-mail address given us in advance.
After you received and checked the photographs in the folder you can choose and order the pictures you wish to have comfortable from your home.
Receiving and processing the order – Post Production
The ordered photos are retouched in the final phase and are cut into the dimension you chose to have. Mostly it is only the skin on the face that is requested to be retouched. Also we can remove minor flies in the ointment such as birth signs, moles, stretch marks or other minor nuisances. Once all is done you can pick up the photographs personally in our studio during opening hours or you can have them delivered by post to your address.
We are offering individualy drawn portraits for clients with different ideas. We realize classic portrait work for different documents, licenses, firearm licenses, resumes, personal or corporate profiles and student panels. We provide premium photography services for genres such as Acts, conceptual portraits and of course portfolios for models and modeling agencies. We creare various comp cards for models – even for the beginners.
We also accept premium portrait assignments for commercial purposes, presentations and promotion of business leaders, politicians, artists, musicians etc. All photos are subject to certain quality standards.
The main priority for us in photography and design is creativity and originality, that is what differs us from other ferial offers. The years of experience taught us that the old fashioned traditional pictures are not used anymore on prom tableaus, they are outdated. We rather create and design in a way to outperform the traditional mass productions.
We always make sure that not only the style of our shootings but also the editing is joyful for both parties which will lead to more natural, stiff-less portraits. The photos for the prom memory cards are also designed by the latest fashion trends and again we make sure that the shooting is a great experience. In every case we try to take the real self image of each individual. In order to achieve this goal, we work very responsibly to fulfill your requests.
We take more shots for the students to be able to choose the best one. The actual choice of the most liked one is very easy and does not take long time. Straight after your photos are taken, images are projected on a large led screen to show all the alternative poses & expressions. All students are also given a passcode to our a private library where they can view all their photographs again from home. Chosen photographs are edited and in a very short period they are ready to be picked up.
Design of a prom tableaus
There is no limit what so ever when it comes to design, it only depends on the client’s imagination. The art board is designed together with the client in order to reach maximum satisfaction. In terms of sizes there are no limits. You can choose from pocket size boards all the way up to billboard sizes tobe placed where you find fit.
